      Hi Krista!
      The flowers in my hair are orchids - I ordered all of my flowers before I went to Jamaica. I sent Tai Flora a picture of the bouquet that I wanted and a picture of my hairstyle. I had my invoice before I ever left for Jamaica. If you have any more questions let me know!!

        Hi!
        We did book in advance to have our photos done at Dunns River Falls the morning after our wedding. Is Michael your photographer? You can book with him before you leave for Jamaica! Let me know if you have any other questions!

            Hi!
            The glass pillars were provided by Tai Flora - the 2 floral arrangements were $80 each and we got to bring the pillars to the reception dinner as well. They took the pillars after dinner but we brought the floral arrangements to our private reception and then back to our room. The cake was the free cake. If you have any more questions please let me know!
            Happy Planning!!
            Karen

                  Hi KarenLynn

                  First, beautiful wedding photos- I bet you love looking at them! I'm trying to figure out what resort in Jamaica to book my wedding at and it seems as though the ROR is the front runner. I just was wondering if you could let me know how you found the planning process to be. I was under the impression that the hotel supplied you with flowers but I read in your earlier post that you got your flowers from Tia Flora. Any reason in particular?
                  Also, how did it work with your officiant? Did you get to communicate with them before your wedding? Did you have any say in how the ceremony went? Also, I have seen a few different photos of the beach gazebo - so pretty. But they all are somewhat different - chairs, flowers etc. Is this customization up to the couple? Does the Riu coordinator execute this? I was originally looking to work with a wedding planner on the island but if the Riu will 'customize' the wedding then I will just work with them. My main concern is the officiant...

                  Thanks for you help in advance!

                      Hi BeachIrishBride!
                      The resort uses Tai Flora. I went with the free package which does include a basic bouquet and bout.....I wanted to upgrade so I emailed Tai in advance and had my invoice from them before I ever left for Jamaica.
                      I did not communicate with the Priest before the wedding - but he was AMAZING!! Super nice and funny! I brought the outline for the ceremony with me and gave it to Chandly and Nickisha (the wedding coordinators) who then gave it to the Priest. We had each of our siblings do a reading and we had the sand ceremony - the entire ceremony lasted about 20 minutes.
                      You will get to choose how you want the gazebo decorated. I arranged the aisle runner, rose petals down the aisle, and two floral arrangements in front of the gazebo with Tai before my trip but you can decide at your initial meeting with the wedding coordinators. I got the chair covers for the ceremony and dinner which were $12USD each.
                      Chandlyn and Nickisha are the wedding coordinators on the resort. They are FABULOUS! You can communicate with them by email before you leave and can make arrangements for dinner/reception/bands/djs/etc
                      Hope this helps! Let me know if there is anything else!!
