    Again, this was from last year & only referred to the Plantation. You should ask Chandlyn if the menu can be upgraded at Mammee Bay & at what cost.

    Although we didn't have Jamaican food at our reception, the food we had was very good. Also, we had Jamaican food throughout the time there at most of the restaurants for lunch or dinner.

    I do know that Marsha, aka Precise Plans, had her reception at the Plantation. I don't remember if she upgraded her menu. You may want to PM her or look for her wedding review to see if she mentioned that.

          Did anyone rent the chair covers? Also do they cover the chairs for the reception as well?

            Yes, I used the chair covers & sashes. If you get the chair covers for your ceremony, they automatically move the covers & sashes to your reception location, free of charge.

                  Question, do you know if they will set up my chair covers and sashes if I brought them? Also, dont those chairs have arms?

                    Thanks for the info everybody! I'm a Riu MoBay bride, but I'm sure it pretty much works the same. Does anyone have any pics of the set-up with the chair covers? I'd just like to get an idea of how it will look.

                      Thats a good question. I would think that if they put your decorations up at the ceremony site free of charge, then there shouldn't be a problem setting up your chairs if you're going to provide the covers & sashes. I'd definitely ask Chandlyn first, before you order them. You may find that whatever she charges you would be equal to just renting them from there.
                      And yes, the chairs have arms!

                      Here's a few pics of my setup with the chair covers/sashes:
