I just got an e-mail from Chandalyn. She just reserved a section of St. Ann's for 50 people for the rehearsal dinner. I will probably have to change the number once we get an accurate idea of the number of guests. Just wanted to let you guys know that she will reserve a section for more than 30 people.

Thanks! I'll contact her about this. Did you have to pay extra for it?

Mo, I'm glad you got everything worked out, that sounds like a good plan. I don't think anyone will be offended about the rehearsal dinner. That is normal to have a dinner with the wedding party, they probably won't think twice about it.

Chandlyn also emailed me yesterday. She said that the $10 per person for Seagrapes is $10 total not per hour.

Also, Carolina at RIU emailed me to say that there are no cancellations on the day of my wedding yet and that there is no way I can be moved to a later timecrybaby2.gif I'm thinking I may call them next month just to check again. I also offered to pay extra to have my wedding moved to 5:00, but she said ministers and judges don't work after 4:00 in Jamaica. Oh well!

Lizz - that is just not true! My wedding is at 5 pm on a Saturday on May 17th at Beaches. I did have to pay extra for the "twilight" ceremony which included a package, but I cant recall now what and I have that info at home...

I have a quick question for you all - is Mammee Bay and Seagrapes a part of the Riu? I am wondering cuz the prices are great, I wonder if I could book our reception there (or if there are other options nearby). Here is the price list options I was provided: (I would like to have a reception down there, but can't afford the $75/pp which is the option that I like)

*** Your reception choices for all onsite guests are as follows:

$15pp after the 2nd guest :basic cocktail reception includes cake, champagne, and cold hordourves

 

$25pp private cocktail reception includes cake, champagne, hot and cold hordourves and an open bar for one hour

 

$50pp dinner only reception includes a 4 course dinner with an open bar for 2 hours.

 

$75pp private cocktail and dinner reception includes cake, champagne, hot and cold hordourves, open bar for 3 hours and a 4 course dinner.

Wow, those prices are crazy! Yes, they are a part of the RIU. You should definitely see if you can book your reception there, it's right next door, isn't it? (Then we can hang out too!)

Carly, I will let you know all about Evita's when I get back from class. I'm late!

BYE!

Oops, I thought Beaches was close to the RIU...sorry Carly! Let us know what you end up doing.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
