Getting married at ROR in January 2010

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
