      Our wedding is in 3 months at RMB. I'm worried about the time between our ceremony and reception...the ceremony is at 2pm, but the reception won't start until 6:30pm. Can someone provide ideas for things to occupy our guests time for 3-3.5hours? We don't want them to stray away or forget about the dinner.

        I had the same timeline for my wedding at RMB this past June. The time was not an issue. By the time the ceremony is over, you take some group pictures and mingle it is easily 3pm. My DH and I then went and took pictures around the resort. My guests enjoyed the chance to go back to thier rooms and relax or just hang out around the resort. We reminded everyone what time the reception was when we were mingling. No one forgot about the reception.

          I'll attempt to answer this...
          It is much more cost efficient to buy your own chair covers. You can find them for really cheap online and RIU charges way too much just to rent them. If you know of a few brides who will be there at the same time as you or just around your date you can always split the cost and decide on a color you can both use...it worked for me! good luck!

                I think, after searching and thinking about the options for making our wedding memorable we're going to end up doing the beach reception. It costs a bit extra regardless (of so I hear) but think about it: who has a reception on a beach in the evening where you can see the moonlight and hear the waves crashing? As long as no one gets too rowdy and tries to go swimming in the middle of the night, it could very well be the time of our lives!
                Loved our beach reception! And some of our guests did get rowdy and did go swimming but it made it so much fun!!

                  Hey RMB ladies! I was reading some other threads and saw one on tipping. I thought i'd post this question on here since there wasnt a clear answer. Since our resort is all inclusive, I was just curious as to who has tipped who. I saw in the other thread that the WC is supposed to get 100-500 US dollars. I also saw that other people were planning on tipping steel drum band, photographer, officiant, DJ, Wait staff, hair stylist (which i normally would tip anyway along with the wait staff). florist, etc etc. I didn't even think about tipping all of these people before and was just curious who you ladies were thinking of tipping, and/or did tip if you already had your wedding? And approximately how much, since its all inclusive i'm not sure how much anything costs to gauge it that way? Thanks so much ladies!

                    Does anyone know the size of the top cake provided in the package at the RIU? I want to order a cake topper, but I haven't heard back from Sherika.

                      I'll try to help you out with this. I had a cake for 25 people - so I'm not sure if the size of the top layer varies with how many are attending.

                      My cake topper was about 4 inches in diameter and I would guess we had about a 1/2" to an 1" to spare around the outside of it.
