      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?

          There is no extra fee...as far as I know.

            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 time 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.

                  Interesting... I'll have to look into this. Thanks Carly!

                    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.
