Riu Montego Bay (RMB) *Post wedding info and attachments*

Recommended Posts

I would say that the chair cover rental fee is only for the ceremony and that you'd have to pay to get them for the reception as well.

 

I have to comment about the tables at the reception dinner though. For some of us who are having a destination wedding because we don't want the hassle of typical "wedding" stuff the tables are absolutely great.

 

So if you're a person who likes plain and simple like me... please don't feel pressured to bring extra stuff. I think the tables are great as they are. Sure the chairs are blue but you're overlooking a tropical beach and a beautiful pool...what better decorations could you ask for? I totally think that putting a bit of your own special touch to the table couldn't hurt but if you're having a destination wedding so that you don't have to worry about that stuff...don't worry about it! Everything will be great!!

 

Here's a picture of our table at night where you can see the chairs better than in my other photos...

And here's a photo of the table when we first sat down when it was still light out. You really don't notice the chairs at all...especially after everyone's sittting!! If you want to cover them then go ahead...I think it'll be beautiful! but like I said....don't feel like you have to...

This is great, this is great, this is great, this is great!

 

This thread has been particularly helpful...thanks so much to all for posting the email attachments from the WC. This way, we can be so much more informed when we go and make our own decisions for the wedding!

As I read though this thread I realized it could be a lot more helpful! Here are some pics and info that might help out even more...

 

Here is the setup that I got for the Free Wedding Package. The only thing extra here is the sashes.

Here is the cake we got with the Free Wedding package...no extras at all. We actually asked for all white icing and that message didn't get communicated to the cake maker. I don't think Chantelle liked the idea so she just didn't send the message ??!!

Here is the beach gazebo from the water.

Ha ha ha! montegobay09, when you get back from "somewhere" come back here and post more pics! We're going with the free wedding too, so any insight you provide is GREAT! I am forever grateful!

 

The blue sashes are sorta cute on the brown chairs...sorry if this has been asked already, but how much were they? I have a feeling I'm going to be shelling out a heckuva lot for a piece of fabric.

 

Do you think it's smart to bring sashes with us instead? Could be kinda heavy on the plane ride over, but if we dispurse them throughout our guests' suitcases, maybe it'll work? We're expecting about 30-40 guests...and 30-40 sashes could add up easily!

Mine were free cause Marshall1980 left them there for me. All I know about the price (and yes I've been asked enough times that you'd think I could remember!!!) is that it was WAY more worth it to buy them online. She got them for less than $2.00 each which saved her a ton of money. For some reason $18.00 rings a bell...I'm not sure what that was though...someone else will have to get the price for you cause I didn't care enough about them to pay for them! haha! I would've just went with the brown chairs cause my idea was that the sand, sky and water were beautiful enough and we didn't need any extras. Having said that, the extra decorations are definately beautiful and if you're willing to pay for them they do make it very pretty...just not our style!

Good luck and don't hesitate to ask any more questions...I'll do my best to answer them.

I'll also check to see if I have more pics...don't think so though.

1Groom's matching boutonniere: White Calla lily, ivory ribbon$25.00 $25.00 Perfect

2Groomsmen boutonnieres: hot pink rose, bride's watermelon ribbon$15.00 $30.00 Perfect but you can do them in simple green ribbon,like the Groom's

 

Ceremony

1(i)white fabric Draped Bamboo Chuppah with garland of flowers: orange roses, $710.00

hot pink roses, white casa lilies, green dendrobium orchids, few pops

of fuschia mokara orchids, greenery. (ii) Hanging vote candles with Please ensure all the green is the same color (clover)not light green.

candles , some with flowers. (ref: Arch 21 website)At this point can you please itemize these items. We do not know how much each thing costs.But if we know how much each item is…we can make a better decision

(ii) two front base arrangements: same colour scheme (ref: img 12 web)

20$2.50 eachorange tie backs (regular orange NOT burned orange)total of $50.00 Perfect..But once I get confirmation of the chairs..you are still covering them, Because I would like them totally coveredContact RIU about using their white folding chairs. Our white chair covers do not fit their brown outdoor chairs that they use for ceremonies $-

2Entrance standing aisle markers: same colour scheme as arch$85.00 total:$170.00 Perfect-Just please confirm those flowers are only the green of the wedding

1Aisle runner with light coverage: pink, orange petals $120.00 Need heavier isle..I have seen light coveragePricing on heavier isle.

 

Reception

4Runners for T shaped style table (specify color)$15.00 $60.00 I have runners- they are white in middle and lime green border..I have four,

t shaped is the best way to set a table for 25-30 people, head table I have four, the border is about 2 in thick, vivid green.

 

 

3Sets of 2 cylinders at different heights: submerged rose with orchids$35.00 total: $105.00 How wide are these cylinders? But height is perfect.I think we may need 4 sets if they are slim

15" and 18" ,floating candle on top, lightly tinted water? What color?) $- I am not sure what will ultimately look good with all these colors I will let you suggest.

4Glass squares with tropicals, orchids, square lined with ti leaf $65.00 total : $260.00 I looked at the arrangements and I think we need5 arrangments if these cylinders are not wide and tall

(style of image #50 Reception décor) alternate with cylinders

8votive candles$2.50 $20.00 are the candles for the reception…because I would like candles at the reception and I am probably bringing them, but let me know your prices and suggestions…should we go with an orange or green candle to bring this table runner in more smoothly.

All Prices are quoted in US - Dollars ! US - SUBTOTAL $1,875.00

Payment Instructions: 16.5 % GCT TAX $309.38 Is there a way to get around this 20% charge? Do you give discount for paying balance upfront?
