Any last minute advice??????

Recommended Posts

Well, it is one week before my wedding (Feb.14), I am getting married on the beach at Riu, Ocho Rios @11am. We will arrive in Ocho Rios on Feb. 11th. I am still a little nervous about all the details being worked out so quickly. We originally had planned to have only another couple come with us, but now we have a party of 10 with the bride and groom. I have read so many reviews from other ROR brides and feel somewhat confident things will just all fall into place, however I know that Chandlyn is very busy and I have sent her e-mails only to receive a confirmation that all details will be worked out upon my arrival. Do I track her downhuh.gif, does she get in contact with mehuh.gif how long does it take to finalize all details?? what about any extra costshuh.gif,

So you see, I guess I am a bit nervous.. My FH tries to reassure me it will all be good... but, still nervous...Any last minute advise from ROR brideshuh.gif

Email Chandlyn and suggest a meeting day and time(her office is right beside the washrooms by the main bar but on the side closest to the front desk)..right on the corner, there are stairs leading up) This is what I did ..I had my appointment with her scheduled before I left. The details only take about 15 minutes to iron out (aka the appt with her is not very long). Extra costs depends on what you wanna do...extra decorations for the gazebo, upgrades to flowers, aisle runners, flower petals, receptions stuff like that all costs extra. I would suggest you get her to take you through a small rehersal just so you know what is going to happen.

For music and stuff (if you are making a cd) you may want a song for your MOH and one for yourself. If you are entering by the bar (aka not stayin in junior suites) its a decent walk.

Just remember ..its your wedding, you are in jamaica and marrying the man of your dreams! Don't sweat the little things and enjoy your day cause it goes very fast!

Hope this helps and looking forward to your review :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
