Love your pictures! You both look wonderful! Congrats!

I am thinking about the RTP I am just waiting on the price list for a bunch of different hotels. Why did you choose the RTP over the RN?

I wonder what nights they have the beach parties on now? We are getting married on a Wednesday and I think we will have the beach cocktail reception but if there is already a beach party happening then we'll just join that.

 

I don't know if Ashleybride2b's question was for everyone but I'll throw in my two cents :) We chose the RBTP over RIU Negril because of the free wedding! That was the main reason, the package prices we were quoted were also lower for RPTB and then when it was going to get renovated that just made it even better. I'm pretty sure we can eat and "play" at all the other RIU resorts in Jamaica but because we're a Palace the guests can't all eat at RPTB. I could be wrong on that but its what I understood...

 

One other thing - I booked hair appointments for me, two BMs, my mom, MIL, my sis and SIL. We had to put down a 50% deposit so $318US. You get 5% discount on all for booking online and the bride gers 10% discount. The salon is at the RN. And at this point they said they could not come to our room to do hair.

 

Hope some of that helps!

I asked Keneika about the beach party and she advised they do not have a schedule. I was hoping there would be one on Friday so that my guests could enjoy if after our Welcome Reception Dinner. She will keep me posted but I plan to take advantage of the exchange program at Riu Negril.

 

She also advised that guest day passes are $100 pp (12 y/o and older) $50 pp under 12 y/o but this price is subject to change.

 

Please remember that if you or your guests would like to enjoy the specialty restaurants you are required to request seating in person at the front desk on that day. I heard the line is usually long so be prepared..they begin taking reservations at 9am.

 

I would advise all of you to ask for everything. I requested a room upgrade as did so many other brides and hopefully it will be granted.

 

Keneika also advised my cake would be two layers and I will be given the option to choose the flavor I would like.

 

Happy planning!

We chose the RTB over the Riu Negril because our TA told us the beach was nicer there....and she was right! We took a walk down to the RN along the beach (we could use their facilities, but guests there aren't suppose to be able to use the RTB facilities)and it was smaller and more crowded. The beach and the water are absolutely beautiful. It is also perfect for walking out. The kids really enjoyed playing in the water as it was clean and shallow.

If we wanted to upgrade the cake we could, but since we had an at home reception, I didn't feel the need to spend the money on the cake at that time.

Bellemiche - Can you tell me how they had your group sitting for the dinner? Our group is about the same size as yours was. Do they have everyone sit together?

 

Thanks for all your help!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
