There are 1 or 2 restaurants closed each night. Depending on the night of your wedding, will depend on what restaurants are open/closed.

I have to say that if we were having an inside reception the Foyer would be my first choice. This is actually my back up plan if there is bad weather. It's really private becuase it's actually connected to the lobby, but it's hidden on the side that people barely even notice it. There are doors so it is blocked off and not open to the lobby area. It also overlooks the beach area/ocean which is beautifully lit up at night and you get the open area because it's in enclosed outside area.

What i liked about the foyer is that you can really make it your own and set it up however you would like. There is also any an adjacent outside area that you can utilize as a sitting area for your guests and is also good area for cigar smoking for the men :)

The area that you see in the picture is not really that private. When we were there they either had 3 - 4 small tables for 1-2 people or they set up 1 larger table for about 6-10 people. Not sure that you can get that many more people up there. This also overlooks the pool area and can be kind of loud during the day; not at night. The pool bar is placed directly underneath.

Thanks!

This was The Grill, so if you're going to do the Lobster house, it's the same just on the other side. While we were there a reception was in the LH and they took the tables to make one long table, and removed the others. The private area up the stairs isn't on the side of the LH, only the Grill. I think the reception there had maybe 20 people. They had enough room for dancing, the DJ, and the table.

The beds are a little hard for me, but I was never uncomfortable.  The restaurants would be closed, but they are both more open than the foyer area.  For instance, Agave's courtyard is on a main walkway of the resort.  There is really nothing stopping anyone from joining your party, theoretically.  All will be beautiful spaces and I am sure that the other resort patrons will respect your privacy.

Does anyone know who the photographer is at ERC?  I'm trying to decide if I want to use the resort photographer or hire an outside photographer.

The resort uses Juan Navarro and his company. You can check out his work at www.juanphotos.com I liked his work but we were looking for something a little different.

We booked Lincoln from "Moments that Matter" photography www.momentsthatmatterphotography.com I loved their pictures and i can't wait for them to shoot our wedding.

    • Digital Lamination Films The global thermal film laminating machines market is anticipated to grow on the backdrop of growth in applications such as advertising, and photography, among others. Thermal film laminating machines are used in places such as schools, offices, and copy centers. The thermal film laminating machines might face some turbulence during the forecast period, due to the growing market for digital printing. Manufacturers of Lamination Film machines across the world aim to enhance the technology integration in these machines. To be able to expand their customer base, thermal laminating film machine manufacturers must integrate a user-friendly control interface. All new versions of thermal film laminating machines keep end user convenience at the epicenter. The only major hurdle in the path is the growth in penetration of digital printing in the market. The Asia Pacific region is expected to be the fastest growing market for thermal film laminating machines market. This is attributed to the growth in the number of work places and educational institutions in the place. Advertising and photography are expected to be the key contributors to the growth of the thermal laminating film market in the Asia Pacific region during the forecast period. In regions such as North America and Western Europe, the advent of digital technology has led to decline in the size of the printing market. http://www.chinathermalfilm.com/bopp-matte-thermal-film-products-i-14.html  
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B

    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
