    Hi there,

    I am really happy to have found this site and can't wait to find out more info. We are getting married at Rio Ocho Rios January 15th 2010, and we cannot wait. I have soooo many questions!

    It seems like those that have gotten married at ROR have mostly positive things to say. I have to admit that reading the trip advisor reports had gotten me a little worried.

    Any tips or advice would be most appreciated.
    Bring on January 10th 2010! I can't wait!

          I am trying to get a picture in my mind of the flow of the day. Our ceremony is booked for 4:00 at the beach gazebo, what does everyone suggest for the dinner, do I go with one of the free options or do I upgrade? Should I book the reception afterwards? If so where does everone suggest?

          I am really interested to hear your feedback. I want to ensure that everyone enjoys the day (including us!) and I am wanting to ensure that I do not go crazy and pay for add ons that are not necessary.

          We are looking at the royale package (is this necessary/worth it?) and adding on the steel drum band. Not sure yet about the decor items we want, I am pretty sure we are not going to go crazy in this area, we want the set up to be simple and not get to bogged down in details like we would if we were getting married here.

          What is the menu like for the set dinner? Are you able to have music played during dinner? Do I need to bring an IPOD and docking station?

          I am hiring a photographer to come to the wedding (he will be a guest all week) will I get a hard time about that?

          Sorry, I have lots of questions! Looking forward to hearing back from everyone!

            Hi and congrats, also welcome to the site. We are also getting married at ROR on August 7 2010 . This site is full of great information. Yes you are able to have music playing during dinner. From the reviews I have seen on the site alot of couples did in fact bring there ipod and Docking station. For menu selections go to the carribean section and click on jamaica forum then Look for the title that says Riu Ochos Rios(ROR) wedding dates *Important links here* when you find it click on it. It is the first one on page for me but it may change. When you click on it it has 3 links that has menus and reception details to help you out.
