          Just to clear this up... because it's coming up a lot often...

          Photoshop DOES NOT have exclusive rights... this is what PHOTOSHOP says. The RIU says you can bring in other photographers. You have two options:

          1. Hire a local Jamaican photographer - in this instance, you will need to pay Photoshop a fee; I believe that it is the day pass PLUS a $250? fee to Photoshop

          2. Hire a non-local photographer - in this instance, the photographer MUST be at the ROR for the minimum stay, which is 4 days/3 nights

          You do NOT need to use Photoshop. If you don't you're either paying the 'breach of contract fee' if you use a local, OR you pay for 3 nights lodging to bring someone else in. You do have options. Please don't let Photoshop bully you into believing you have no choices!

            hi! ok I didnt know that about the photographers so thanks! Also, thanks for the pics Mo! we booked Seagrapes and released the disco for our reception. My brother in law has offered to take care of the music. One note for girls on a tight budget (ie me with all my tuition...) 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!

              Oh! And i know some people werent sure what to put in gift bags so we have done welcome bags per couple that include (some of which is because its valentines day while we're there...):
              SPF sport lip balm
              hand sanitizer
              hair mask treatment (as hair will get really dry with salt/sand)
              romantic bath powder
              massage oil
              heart shaped lollipops
              we got mini games for guys (like golf on the go...)
              and personalized drinking cups (as cups at resorts are often small)
              and we got special sand bucket gift baskets for the kids that have lots of activities ... anyway hope that helps!

                Do you know where you are getting the flowers from? I'm still looking into florist options and would love to hear what you're doing!

                  Hello,
                  When we sat down with Chandlyn, we decided to have everything served(including the soup/salad) and brought out except for the dessert. We had a table with desserts on it that guests could eat at their leisure.

                    Can I ask you many people this bus holds, and the cost? I have thought about doing the same thing, it would be nice not to be the last group delivered to the resorts, and also, the ROR seems very popular, I can imagine this would save the hassle of check in.

                      That's a great idea. Was there an extra charge for this?
