    What package will you be doing?
    Are you able to upgrade and customize the free package or do you have to get the Caprice in order to upgrade and do what you want with the wedding?


    Oh, PS I'm leaning heavily towards RMB but would love to hear from all RIU brides (past and future)

      i was originally getting the highest package, i can't remember the name. but after being on this board i realized it was more cost effective to get the free package and upgrading from there. also the number of people i was planning on attending get a lot smaller.

      i am a ror bride, but i think the policy is the same.

        Thanks mwillis. Are you upgrading thru riu or using outside vendors?

          Danyelle - have you searched thru all the Riu Ocho Rios threads in the JA section? There have been so many ROR brides that I am pretty sure you can find the information that you need in some existing threads. Not sure about RMB, but I would guess their policys are the same.

            I am also going with the free package. A lot of my "upgrades" are coming from stores here in the US and we are bringing them down with us. The cake is also outsourced. I think that the only thing that I will have the RIU provide is the tulle for the gazebo.

            I am also an ROR bride.

              Most brides tend to qualify for the free package and do a la carte. I did the Royal package because I knew I wanted certain things (the little extras) and also because I did not like the decorations with the free package. Well not that I did not like it, it just was not enough. So I would recommend starting with the free. factor in all the things you want and if it makes sense compared to the Royal, go for it. Either way, your day will be beautiful I am sure of it.

                I'm going with the free package at RMB and I don't think I'm getting any upgrades. I considered getting a higher package at first and then realized that if I want some of those things when I get there, I'll pay for just those things that I want.

                  I know there are extra charges for using outside vendors, though...does anyone know how much more extra it is to use someone else for your flowers, decorations, cake or photographer besides the ones used by the ROR?

                  We have asked my FI's cousin to take pictures for us but he's not a professional by any means, do you think they will still charge you if it looks like you brought an outside photographer in? He does have a pretty nice professional-looking camera with lenses...LOL
