Just us going, need a location!

Recommended Posts

After many months of planning & arguing with family members about a DW, we have decided to just go & do it just us, without telling anyone.. Out MOH & BM will prob join us, but we have decided to def scratch all big plans & just do a big AHR when we get home.. Does anyone know of a nice reasonable AI in Jamaica that would be able to do this for us? or would our best bet be to just book a trip & go outside of our resort to have the actual wedding?

Well lots of ladies go to the RIU resorts. I've been to the Ochos Rios and my wedding is planned for the Riu in Negril, in Jamaica. Riu's have great wedding packages, even a free wedding packing which you would certainly qualify for as there will be only 4 of you. Check it out.

Have fun and good luck planning! :)

I definitely agree with Lisa in that Riu's have some pretty affordable packages. You could definitely go with the free package.

I just came back from ROR and it is just as beautiful now as it was when I got married there last year.

 

Definitely take some time to browse the Jamaica threads and look at reviews & pics of recent weddings. There's a wealth of info around!

 

Whichever resort you chose, I hope you guys have an amazing time.

We picked Couples Sans Souci - it looked like the more intimate of the properties and had a free wedding package. Lots of wedding pictures I looked at for the other AIs seemed to have a lot of on-lookers in the background and I think I would be uncomfortable with that. I'm sure we'll have people around but the beach location at CSS is off to the side of the beach and I don't think we'll have any people walking through the background!

 

Couples also lets us bring our own photographer (even though we have to pay $$$ to do it) and that was important to me.

 

We're going to have just our parents and my sister and her husband there so it's a small group similar to yours.

 

Good luck finding one you like :-)

Hello Back in Feb when I started planning my wedding I was seriousy looking at the RIU's unfortunally you needed to book several rooms to get the free package. Without the free package it was going to cost $800.00. I started looking at couples. I thought if I am going to spend $800.00 I might as well stay at couples and put that 800 into the cost of the resort and take the free wedding package. I looked at many photos and was very happy with the looks of the wedding at couples. In the long run we decided to go with couples. It cost a little more then the RIU resorts to stay, but with everything that was included and the no tipping policy I figure we were not really going to spend a whole lot more then we did going to the 3 star ( we usually go to in Mobay) and tipping all week and also paying for the glass bottom boat trip, water sking, catamarane cruise, which all are included in the resorts cost! Getting married two weeks from today at CSA!!!

What about one of the Sandals resorts? I do not know how much they are but that is an idea. We are going to Breezes Runaway Bay that has a free wedding package that you would qualify for. It is very affordable. Good luck

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
