any RIU Negril brides? questions!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

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?

 

thanks!

Hi Inunez!

 

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. i'm getting married on August 14th 2009. i've been to Negril, jamaica already and stayed at the RIU Tropical bay palace before they reconstructed. i know the atmosphere of the resort and what to expect in terms of the employees and service. but i don't ever remember seeing a wedding when i went. i just want some details of what to expect the day of the wedding. i am having a hard time finreviews of RIU Negril, which makes me kind of nervous. theres not much i can do now that i've reserved the date and all. i just hope its worth the stress.

 

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?

Well we did choose Riu Negril and have booked a date online, but we haven't heard anything and it's been over a week and I'm starting to worry now! I think there are a few other ladies getting married there soon, so we'll have more reviews.

Wow that would be great, thanks!

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.

inunez...I just wanted to let you know that I did get married on-site at the Riu Negril. We had 15 guests but we did not have a private reception. We did have our sit-down dinner on the upper level at the Steakhouse. They did provide table linens. However, I didn't have any centerpieces or bring any of my own decorations. 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!

i have to be honest with u...we had a travel agent who was not very familiar with planning destination weddings n i was loosing my mind!!! we ended up firing her, b/c she didnt seem like she knew what she was doing, was insulting 2 me n wanted $ in advance w/o even even giving us a contract! on top of that she constantly gave us false information!! once i got involved with destination weddings.com my mind was more at ease. to me it seems liek the resort don't have a quick response unless they are dealing with someone who've they dealt with before and often. it's good 2 have that name sometimes. just something to think about!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
