Jamaica here I come!!

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


I decided to have my wedding at the Riu Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. This is such a wonderful and informative website. I was suppose have my wedding at the Sandals Resort in Ocho Rios but came across a few bumps in the road. Sandals is an adults only resort and I have a two year old son. I was okay with it at first because for all he knows we're married already but as time went on I started thinking more about how I wanted to share this moment with him and how cute the pictures would be of course. So after looking at this site and getting a chance to read other people reviews and look at the beautiful pictures I thought...hummmmmm this is perfect. I was really impressed with how many pictures Riu offers because at Sandals it is soooo much more and you get less pictures (I'm talking about a $1000+). I also notice that at Sandals you have to pay for each guest to eat for the reception but a Riu the meal is included with the "all-inclusive", and the finally thing that sealed the deal for me was that at the Sandals resort the steel drum players are $600 but the Riu Resort is $300...I mean really it only seemed like the smart thing to do. Don't get me wrong I think Sandals is a great resort too and we are planning to go there for our honeymoon.


OMG!!! I feel like I am about to burst inside.

YAY Kayce... CONGRATS ON FINDING A PLACE!!! It's a tricky job when you have kids trying to find the perfect place.


I ran into that and ended up on Beaches in Negril. It's way more than other places, but Noah's 6 and Jays nephews are 8 and 4, so they will be using all the kiddie stuff to it's fullest.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
