      When are you getting married next May? I am in the process of trying to book a date right now!  I am been searching this site and have found some helpful things in the other RIU Montego Bay forums and even the ROR forums...But I am still looking for more info!

          Wow May 5th! I requested either May 4th but May 5th was my backup date!  We will be there at the same time!  I have a May 4th request date in right now so I am hoping I get that. I did get an email from "Mice" but all it said was that Arely Arce would be contacting me regarding the date I chose.  Are you going with the free package and just using add ons or are you going with a bigger package? Thats the first decision that I have to make. Are you using a travel agent?

            And from what I gather..you choose a package and if you want more/other things than its an additional cost. How many people are you planning on having?

              wow! thats awesome,  I hope you get your date! maybe we will be sharing the same wedding day! I am booking group rates through destinationweddings.com it is a free service very convient, and they take all of the payments from your guests so that you do not have to deal with everything on your own! as of right now we have 28 guests that are joining us! How many guests will you have?

              I am not sure what to do about the wedding package, i want to get married on the beach and not in one of the gazebos so i am not  sure if the package will actually benefit us, I am waiting to hear back from a women named sandy that handles the decor end of things. I have however picked a dj, and possibly a photographer. even though the resort charges you to use outside vendors i do believe that we are going to save money and get better results! If we end up at thre resort at the same time maybe we can meet! The resort is very slow moving (island time) so you do not always get quick responses but they will get back to you!

                I am in the process of confirming right now, so it looks good for  5/4/2012!!  We will def have to meet once the time comes. I am sure this next year will fly by!! I should check out destinationweddings.com. My travel agent has been just ok at best. She's local but she takes forever to respond and it took her a month to even get me any kind of pricing. So I dont know what I am going to do.  I think we will have right around 20 guests. Give or take a couple. I am not sure about the beach or gazebo. My first initial reaction was to go with the beach. I heard it was really windy on the beach though. Either way whatever we choose it is going to be BEAUTIFUL!  I am choosing the free wedding package and then adding on the things that I want. I also want a photographer. Who are you using? Arely sent me information about the resort photographer Micheal. I have heard mixed reviews about it. Some peopple loved him and some people hated his work.  Are you going to do any extra flowers?  I would like my bridesmaids to have flowers but Im not sure which company I would want to use or go through the resort. There are so many decisions to make!!
