We are having a private bus pick us and our family/friends at the airport so we can hand out gift bags on it and get a direct ride to the hotel. We're doing this through Lees tours. We're also doing a day trip with everyone and they have been so accomodating!! I asked Norma (the super nice woman from Lees tours) about what I could do for flowers and she gave me a ridiculously cheap price for flowers for me, my bridesmaids, the groom, and my flower girls AND they'll deliver it to the hotel first thing in the morning. If you need ANY services I am strongly endorsing these guys - they're fantastic and fast to respond by email. I cant believe I'm a week away!
My wedding is on the same day! Mine is at 4 at the beach gazebo - where & what time is yours?

Thanks - good to know Cherie. Did you have to pay extra?

Sorry Cherie - One more question - What kind of soup did you have?

 

On the included menu it says pepper pot & Chandlyn said I could change this at no charge to chicken, vegetable, or asparagus...

The guests choose their entree once they arrive at dinner - fyi.

Ooh, I'm not sure. The included meal ($500/2hr, $1000/4hr) includes these entree's:seafood combination, stuffed jumbo shrimp, beef loin, or grilled chicken breast.

I agree that we all need to stick together. We are making the final decisions to go with Riu for ceremony and travel to Couples San Souci the last 4 days of our honeymoon. Date is 9/27. I am still somewhat of a skeptic about the ceremony and the appearance of flowers, etc....

I"m using Lee's as well based on MoWife's recommendation. Here's their website. Just send them an email & they will respond-promptly! They have been excellent to deal with.

They are picking up me & FI on 1 day & then all of my guests on 2 other days. They were fine with accomodating us on 3 different days. We'll all be returning home on the same day.

I do have some random ?'s hopefully someone can answer tho!

Your bridesmaids, are they wearing shoes? I am doing the beach gazebo, and I have them wearing tea lengths dresses, so I was thinking wedges, but is it wierd for them to wear shoes in the sand?

Where is a good place to have the dinner after the ceremony, I am only having around 20ish guests, I've heard Maumee bay alot? Whats that like? Is it one long table or little tables?

I want to give my guests personalized bottles of sunscreen in their rooms before they get there, How would I get those to the resort? And how would they get into the rooms of my guests?

The disco. Good idea or no?

Okay, that might be it for now :) Thanks so much and i hope to hear form someone soon!!!

Congrats! My BMs are wearing barefoot sandals with tea length dresses. I thought shoes might be hard to walk in if the sand is really soft.
Mammee Bay is the free reception. You can also have a beach reception or a private reception at Plantation but you will pay to rent the restaurant.
We have gotten mixed responses from the resort re: shipping things to the resort ahead of time, so I think the majority of people just pack all this stuff in thier suitcases. Lots of girls are having welcome receptions when they arrive at the resort at one of the bars and giving out gifts then.
Can't help with the disco, sorry!

If you click search, then advanced search and type in the names of any of the restaurants or really any topic you will find lots of info. There are a ton of RIU Ocho Rios brides on here with lots of info. Be sure to read all the threads that say wedding review! There are 2 or 3 new reviews posted under Jamaica right now.

Happy planning!

    • 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.
