I would be in accord with most people who say to just stay at your resort of choice and let people figure their own accomodations out except that the OP wants to have her wedding at RIU. I, too, was looking at RIU and liked their resorts and wedding packages the best...however unless 80% of your guests stay at the resort, they will cancel the wedding. If your guests decide that they are just not coming, that is one thing...but they all decide to book at other cheaper resorts, you will not have a wedding for them to attend...

 

That really sucks that you might be forced to give up your first choice for wedding venue...I don't know a way around this one with RIU's policies...

 

Any thoughts/suggestions?

I agree with the other posts...it is your wedding and you should have it wherever you and your FI want it. Our deciding factor was who were mandatory attendees..FI's kids, and both sets of parents. Luckily for us we are staying at BRB, which is a bit cheaper than other resorts and offers a ton of stuff for our family and friends. Almost everyone is in...good luck and follow your heart and desire...

I did A LOT of research on resorts, most of the ones I liked were way more then RIU-Like up in around $2500 n tax....fianlly I found RIU Ocho RIos-it had everything I had, and I couldnt believe he quotes we got back, I had to book....we had a lot of complaints at first, ut you may be surprised,...we now have 27 guests booked, and all we wanted was our parents and my sisters.......chances are, people who will complain about the rate...would complain if it was 200 bucks....and even then they prob still wouldnt book--so dont settle for anything less....to please someone else.......do what makes you happy! Jamaica would be a fairytale wedding....I think you know what you REALLLLLY want to do!!! (by the way you're talking, if you dont do this wedding, you'll be miserable planning anything else) Good luck!

I think we ALLL go thru this at some point. I know I did. Listen, speaking from experience.....do what you want to do!!

 

I always knew I wanted a wedding in the carribbean,...always--when I got engaged, thats what I decided, then I started hearing the complaints of how expensive jamaica was when thats what I chose.......it upset me...and I convinced myself I think, that it was ok to get married at home too....so I booked the venue, the photographer, the decorator, and I was sooo unhappy doing it....I use to joke with fi about cancelling it all and doing the Jamaica wedding,...then finally my joking turned to being serious......what a waste of moeny-we lost all our deposits, cancelled it all...and started back at my research-told all our family.....a lot of different reactios........but god-I am so much happier wih this now--I dream almost every night about the resort...and we ended up with 27 people booked.....our immediate family and best friends are coming...ad we're thrilled, we;re facing a few bu mps in the road now with the tour operator--tbut I would never go back! This really is my dream come true wedding!

 

You cant change your dreams, your plans-they're yours! Keep them and live them, the excitement is overwhelming...and alll my friends talk about hti trip---its so exciting.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
