    steph held03.....Congratulations on your wedding!!!

    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 can definitly post some pics for you. I have the disks at home so I'll bring them in to work with me tomorrow and post some!

        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!

          We went with the Royal package and did a couple upgrades. Oh I forgot to mention the wedding cake- we were going to get the bigger one which would have cost an extra $250 but she threw that in for free, she said that was part of the 2009 package, that you get the size cake that you need to feed all your guests for free! It was okay, didn't taste that good but not a lot of people ate it anyways! I brought decorations for it, chocolate starfish, that I gave Dionne but they never made it on the cake and i don't know what happen too!

          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.

            Thanks steph!

            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!

              Steph, Congratulations!!

              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!

                    I wish I could help, but I don't know how to do that either! I can't even figure out how to get that little ticker thing to pop up in my profile.

                    Hopefully someone can help cuz I'd love to see your pics!

                      This is some great information. I have been worried also. I am new to the forum, getting married at the Riu Negril on June 25, 2009. I'd love to see some pics. I have emailed the wc, but no response.

                      steph- did you have much contact with the wc before the wedding?
