any RIU Negril brides? questions!
Posted 23 February 2009 - 05:48 PM
has anyone gotten married at the RIU Negril and did a private reception and sit down dinner? how was it? do you have any pictures to share? how was the setup? what do the chairs and tables look like? do they provide linens, etc.?
i'd like to have a sit down dinner but have no idea what to expect. i want to bring my centerpieces from home wish i knew how the room was decorated. i'm also wrroed about not having a DJ. we can't afford to have one so we're just having an IPod playlist goign which i don't have a problem with. but i wish i had someone to announce us coming into the room, setup the 1st dance, the dance with my dad and my FI's dance with his mom. sort of like a master of ceremonies. any recommedations for that?

Pearlygirl just got married at Riu Negril so look for her review in the wedding review section, it's great!
I'm also planning a wedding there for Jan 2010 and looking forward to it.
Did you book your date yet?

i did check out her review, but since she did the actual wedding offsite, it didnt help me much. i kinda already have a feel for what the resort will be like.
have you made your decision yet?

I just went to the Riu website to get my date from them first. I do have a travel agent, but figured that I should book my wedding with Riu first.

I also can't comment on having an iPod playlist or having someone announce your arrival. Sorry, I wish I had more information for you!
