Riu Negril questions
Posted 20 November 2008 - 05:08 PM
Thanks for posting here. It's good to hear everything went well for you. And I'm glad you let us know the photographer did a good job....I think it will ease a lot of worries for us. Is there any way for you to post a few?
Here are a few questions for you....
1. Did you have your hair done at the resort? If so, how did they do?
2. Did you actually get the room upgrade?
3. How were the bouquets/flowers? Do you suggest upgrading the flowers?
That's all I can think of right now, but I'm sure I'll think of more!
Again, thanks for the post and I look forward to reading your future review!

I did have my hair done at the resort and I loved it! It was pretty expensive, $90, but it was my wedding day so it didn't really matter to me! I brought a picture of what I wanted and it sort of looked like it. They are super quick too, only took 35 minutes to do the whole style. I did not have my make-up done there though.
We did get a room upgrade. We booked a basic room and we recieved the free upgrade to an oceanview. They never offered the free room the night before for my husband, not that we really wanted it anyways.
The flowers were great. I didn't see any that I liked on the website but she had a book to chose from during our meeting. I upgraded our flowers for an $40 for mine and each bridesmaid was about $30 i think. I'll post pictures of those as well tomorrow!

Just so everyone knows to you really won't have much contact from Dionne while at the resort. We saw her for an hour while we were doing the wedding meeting, 20 minutes during rehersal and then I saw her for about 5 minutes the whole wedding day. But everything did manage to go smoothly. We also got married in the hurricane so we weren't able to have it on the beach but we did have it on the inside terrace and it turned out beautiful. The gazabo is located right in the middle of the beach and has a walk way right up to it for the wedding party. The arch way is a little further down and doesn't have a walk way so you kind of have to walk around a little bit. We were supposed to have it at the arch way.

It is such a reassurance to hear from a bride who has just returned from Riu Negril. I think you are relieving a lot of stress for us!!!
We'll probably be asking you every question under the sun for the next couple weeks.....sorry in advance!

I cant wait to read your review and see your pictures. Its so nice to have a bride that got married at the Riu Negril for once! I have mostly the same questions as the other brides so the more info you can provide the better! I have a little more than 5 1/2 months to go but I am kind of anxious about everything. Im sure we will all be asking you tons of questions over the next few months!
