Floral Fantasy; Flowers for All Occasions from Negril, Jamaica
They did the chuppah and my bouquet.
I actually just specified that I wanted something blue in there, and I was really happy to see all the different colors. It was beautiful.
The orchid for the hair Stacey brought with her, it was like $8 extra and there were many orchids left for any of the girls that wanted them.

I'm loving the review because we are doing the same exact thing. Staying at RIU with the wedding at Negril Escape.
Can't wait to hear some more reviews.

We are kinda putting it together ourselves. Sent, Don, our vision so we can have it the way we like. Did you?
Did you have the reception upstairs in open room or out in the open?

First, I think the guests really enjoyed going to another resort and experiencing being on the cliffs and trying food from another resort besides ours.
Also, we wanted something a bit more private. Although the weddings at Riu were very beautiful, there were a lot of other Riu guests just standing around watching and probably ended up in the wedding party's pictures. Even when the wedding party would go to the bar, we saw other Riu guests run up behind them while they are taking photos.
What some couples did that we saw was they had their wedding at Riu, then went to Rick's cafe by boat for the reception. Or I think someone else went to a restaurant outside Riu for the reception. There are so many great restaurants outside of Riu in Negril that will host receptions as well.
Also, I think we were a bit more flexible with what vendors we can bring.
We had fire dancers which the guests loved. I'm not sure if Riu would be able to do that but I assume if they do, they'll be other hotel guests watching around as well.
It really comes down to what you want for your wedding.
There is definitely a price difference with doing it at Riu and doing it somewhere else. Because then you end up paying for 2 of the most expensive things, food and alcohol.
Even though doing the wedding on the beach is super beautiful, the scenery on the cliffs is just amazing, it really takes your breath away.
There's a lot of small hotels on the cliffs that do weddings.
