      Hi Claire

      You did a much better review than I did, I can hardly remember most things?! All I keep remembering is which hand to put Johnny's wedding ring on when he put both hands out!!! LOL!! Thanks for the support, hope you have a fantastic reception this weekend in Bradford, talk soon x x x

        Hi, I'm so glad u had a great time, u look so beautiful.

        It's great to hear from a uk bride too, can i pick ur brain for some prices and also the email address of the wedding co-ordinater?

        We decided on the Royal package but wanna know how much things like hair, make up and nails will cost me once i get there? Also the price of extra photo's and things!

        Thanks xx

            Congrats!!! Your pics are great, thanks for sharing. I have a question. I bought the same sand ceremony vase, did you have any problems transproting it home and how did you get it there safely? Thanks

              Your pics are great!! Were they taken by the resort? Just wondering because I'm worried about their quality. Also, I noticed that you have a single band on and that's what I plan to do. SO, what did you wear until the wedding? Did you have an engagement ring?

                Congratulations on everything! Your review and pictures were great, I'm glad you enjoyed yourself! I'm glad you stayed positive about everything. Did you do a private reception or a semi-private one? I don't think I would have given the ladies at the spa a tip after they went on and on about a tip like it was an obligation. A tip is for great service and to me being uncomfortable is NOT great service.

                  Hey Claire..

                  Great to see you review. Was wondering how you were doing! I waited with my review way to long ( lazy ) ... Still didnt put my pictures on internot too

                  Wanted to look at your pictures, but I cant do it at the office, so have to wait untill I get home, cant wait! How was you party last weekend? We had a crazy time the 24th ...

                  See Hi to everybody for me ok?

                  Big kis

                    Hi ladies

                    Thanks for the lovely comments.

                    Kinny111 - I had the caprice package so had my hairstyle and nails included in the cost. However, I did pay for the BMs and MIL at $85 per style. A standard manicure and pedicure was included, but I upgraded this to a french polish at $12 per mani and pedi. My mother did our make up so cannot comment on the spa services. I have their pricelist on email if you want. Or you could check out their website Renovaspa - Beauty, Health and Spirit, or email them info.jamaica@renovaspa.com. They are very good at responding! The wedding co-ordinator email address that I used is weddings.ori@riu.com please remember that their interent is not as fast as yours at home so they do take a while in responding. With photo's go to their website for the pricelist which details extra time and images etc best images

                    OROBride1008 - I packed the sand ceremony kit in heavy duty bubble wrap, then transported it in hand luggage both ways. On the way back I was stopped by customs as they thought it was drugs!! But once I opened my case and showed them it was sand they let us through!

                    Paul'sSoulmate - The photo's were done by the resort but not the head photog Michael. We had Lincoln instead as Michael had another wedding. He wasn't too bad really, but I think he is still learning. he didn't really give much direction, we had to suggest stuff, but it was no problem and the photo's look good anyways! With the single band thing - I had my engagement ring there, and wore it on a night time, but I didn't want it to get ruined with sun lotion all the days. I wasn't sure if you should wear it on the big day, so didn't. But now I wear both together.

                    tdmitchell - our reception was at mammee bay and its kind of semi private, though the table next to ours had a family of 4 on it, but not till 9pm when we were finishing up. It was fine for doing speeches too.

                    JesJess - hey there honey! Glad your party was good, ours was good too. Got to wear my dress again which was good for those who did not come to Jamaica. How are you two doing? Both back at work now? When you see the photo's on facebook, friend request me then you can see some of the others from when we met on the night times! Big kiss to you both x
