i dont know about the specifics of this resort but most resorts have wedding packages that you can select and the include pretty much everything for the wedding and reception and you sit down with the wedding coordinator when you get to the resort and they figure out the final details....not as hard as traditional wedding at all lol

I assume that Riu Negril is pretty much the same as the other Riu's in Jamaica so yeah the first thing to do is to decide on a wedding package. As far as I can tell from the threads on here, probalby the best route is to go with the free package and then pay for the extras that you really want. If you contact your WC she'll be able to send you a price list for all that as well as book your reception location and time. I'm sure if you do a search for Riu Negril that you'll find more info. I found most of the price lists under Riu Montego Bay and some under Riu Ocho Rios but in the end they were all the same. Keep searching...it'll all come together!


Here's what I learned that is necessary - if you don't want to go with the bouquets in the package you should contact the florist (ask WC)

- find out who the resort photographer is and contact him/her to confirm a booking.

- reserve your reception location and time early so that you don't have to settle for something that's not already booked by another bride!


Like I said...keep using the search and you'll figure it all out!

    • 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.
