Ocho Rios wedding idea...need opinions

Recommended Posts

Looks really nice. I've been to the Riu in Ochos Rios and you will not be dissapointed, everything is beautifal, lots of marble, clean. Just one thing to look out for -- DO NOT DRINK THE BEER WITH THE BROWN LABEL!!! They are the bears that are in the mini bars in the room. My FI drank one and got really really sick, we're talking 4 IV's sick! We think its because the beers were unpaturized. So sick to Red Stripe and you'll be okay.

I think that's a great idea! I JUST BOOKED my wedding at the Riu Ocho Rios for Feb 6, 2008! I think I will get married onsite, but I love the look of The Ruins, I think it would be unique and memorable and so nice!

Maureen - this is beautiful!!! My fiance and I are strongly considering Riu Ocho Rios for our wedding/honeymoon. Now we're trying to decide whether or not we will have the ceremony on site or if we will go off-site. I guess it all depends on how many people are planning to come!!! cheesy.gif

It looks beautiful there!

I was wondering, any of the soon to be brides who are getting married at Riu Ocho Rios, do you have any info on the weddings there? I emailed the resort to get info but have yet to hear back.

Got an email from Riu Ocho Rios about outside photographers...they are NOT allowed!!! (They use 'Photoshop' - I got an email from the photographer and was not impressed with the pictures. I can forward to anyone interested.)

 

I did find a loop hole though - "If you will have guests that would like to take pictures they can actually do it. We just do not allow outside vendors at the RIU Ocho Rios." - from email with Riu Wedding Sales Coordinator (and I specifically stated that I have a guest who is a professional photographer; not true but I wanted to see what they said!).

My best friend is actually, staying at the same resort, and also getting married at the Ruins. I can't wait to go it looks so pretty. We are going May/2008. We are going to the wedding but are actually going to stay somewhere else. We are going to take this oppurtunity to have a belated honeymoon, in Jamaica. Our wedding is going to be 2 weeks in Punta Cana with 5 kids, not much of a honeymoon. When is your wedding going to be?

I'm trying to decide between beach & on-resort wedding locations. Definitely one of the gazebo locations; but they have a gazebo on the beach and on their grounds. I don't what this to happen with my wedding photos, so maybe off of the beach!!

Thats hillarious!!! Unless I was the bride. Too funny... At first I thought we were looking at man boobs (are we allowed to say that on here?) but nope I believe it just might be a woman. Can you imagine!!!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
