    Hi All,

    I have been reading alot on here how people have already booked resturant times, hair appointments, flowers etc.

    I am a little confused because when I first talked to Chandlyn she gave me the impression that we decide on all of that when we get there and to relax and not worry about it now. Should I really worry about those details now?? We went with the free wedding package and are going to have a reception at the Mammee bay resturant.

    Thoughts anyone?

      Hi Kari! Since there are 3 weddings per day booking becomes essential for the more "structured" bride such as myself. I haven't made any hair appts but I have confirmed the poolside reception for my guests since I wasn't sure of the availability. Call me a bit controlling but I like to be assured that things will go as planned :.)

      But Im sure that everything works out in the end. We arn't going to decide on the bands and what not till we get there.

        Im getting married the same day as you, but at Riu Palace Tropical Bay. My WC emailed me a month ago about booking my dinner reservations. So Ive booked my reception and I booked my hair/makeup appt at Renova Spa today. They suggested to book early, rather than later. That's all Ive done.

          I definitely recommend advance booking as you may have an issue with dinner reservations if you don’t. I booked my dinner reservation and spa about 7 months in advance to be in the safe side. I knew I would be upset if I had the later seating. Contact Chandlyn and let her know what you wish to confirm. If you are renting the hall/disco, I would reserve that as well in advance.

            My ceremony time is at 11:00am so we can enjoy the rest of the day on the beach after the ceremony, I will e-mail Chandlyn about making sure we can reserve the first seating at Mammee Bay resturant, I would rather not wait until 9pm to eat thats for sure. Thanks for all the info ladies :)
