    Great review! We're planning on taking our baby to the wedding as well. From your review and the pictures it seems that this was not problematic for you.

      Not at all, there's actually a lot of babys there. We brought our stroller everywhere on the resort. Bring twice as much wipes as you would normally use though. Our group had 5 babys and all of us ran out! There is a supermarket if you need anything and they have all of the usual brands, I was phycho mom and shipped every medication, diaper, food, and bottles necessary just in case and I really could have just picked them up there. I brought some pediatric electrolite because of the heat, gave him some every day and he didn't get sick at all. Also, you need a baby carrier in Ocho Rios, strollers won't work in the streets.

        You have been such a BIG help! Thank-you. I do have a couple more questions. Where on the resort is the beach gazeebo located? And which pool is the poolside reception held at? The smaller pool beside Mammee Bay restaurant? Also the beach party the Riu puts on Sat night? Where is it held at? Thanks Again!

          No problem!!! The beach gazebo is at the far end of the resort opposite the planatation. It's closer to Mammee Bay but it's still a good 4 minute walk from there, which is nice because it's in an area no one is around.
          There is a set of stairs that all the brides walk down to go to the Beach Gazebo, the pool is right at the top of those stairs, where you see those big white arches is where they do the reception - it's directly in front of the Reggae Bar. No person has to cut accross this area to get to their rooms so it's very private for the entire night.
          The beach party is held in that same area in front of Sea Grape.

            Thank you SO much for your review! I have a couple of questions for you --

            1. Was your photographer a private one? How much was she? Also, it looks like your pics weren't all on one day or at different locations ( I might be wrong)... was it more to do that? Any info on this part would be appreciated!

            2. Were your flowers provided by ROR or did you bring them? Are they real or silk?

            3. Was the cake upgraded or is that the one you get?

            Thanks in advance!

              This thread was soooo helpful! Your review was great and your pics are beautiful! I think I may have to do the pool side as well. It was beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

                1. Yes she was my own photographer. She is the cost of a 1 week trip which in my case was 2100CDN and 1000.00CDN from that I had the whole wedding day covered from getting ready to end of reception. We also did the trash the dress the next day, we went to the old market in Ocho Rios and then to Dunn's River and then to the Beach at the bottom of Dunn's River, trash the dress took us about 4 hours total.

                2. Flowers are a very high quality silk, they are amazing and look completely real. I got flowers, boutenniers, and flower petals for the tables from her.

                3. The cake was an upgrade yes and it was also Rum Cake (Excellent!) decorated the cost was 650US.

                    This is an amazing review!! I'm having my reception poolside in April and this has put my worries about it to rest! We have about 60 people coming and it looks exactly like what I was wanting. And as a side note...my invitations are the same paper as your programs! I know you've been answering tons of questions but I have one more. Where did you order your mugs from? I've been trying to find some cheap ones to keep our costs down on the OOT bag but would love your input. And what else did you include in them?
                    BTW...you looked gorgeous on your wedding day!!
