    Hello Ladies. My fianc© and I are getting married June 29th this year and I'm super excited!! Trying to keep the cost down and was wondering what the chairs look like. Our ceremony takes place at Club Hotel on the beach. Does anyone have any pictures? Want to bring my own.

      Hello everyone! This may be a weird question but from looking at all the pictures it seems like this resort is in a tighter cove and all the pictures I have found of weddings here so far seem to have a strip of land in the background instead of ocean horizon. Does anyone know if this is how all the weddings are set up here or is there some way you could have the ocean in the background?

        I'm getting married there next week so I will be able to let you know.  I know it's in a bay so there is  land on both sides, which could be what you are seeing.

          Hi Ladies! We are getting married at Riu Palace Tropical Bay October 12, 2013!!  I know some things are the same at Club Negril - The chairs for the "free wedding" package are green plastic chairs.  They aren't the most attractive thing, but for $12/chair you can rent a cover and sash.  If you have a larger group they use white ones, which don't need covers (in my opinion!)


          We upgraded our booking to the ocean view suite and chose the free wedding package.  I'm upgrading my bouquet, but bringing silk flowers for everyone else that I've already made up.


          I've been working on our OOT bags - but just sent out the invites so waiting for a more firm RSVP's to come back first. 


          Started freaking out today because its only 4 months away... and I haven't figured out our menu for our AHR, and have a lot to do in the next 2 months! 


          Time flys by faster than you would think..  Thank goodness I have my dress, Tim's outfit, bridesmaids dresses/groomsmen outfits, & our invites done!!!! My travel agent has been a tremendous help with contacting the wedding planner for me and doing all the nitty gritty for me :):) she's so good to me!

            I am getting married at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay October 26/13. Time really does fly and I'm trying to plan and getting a lot of great info from this site. We will have 30 guests including our wedding party. We are paying an additional $200 to have the beach area for the reception after dinner at the Steakhouse. I booked a local photographer, Marcia E Roberts, who my co-worker and several clients have used. I am also booking a dj. I found the pricing at the resort to be exorbitant. What I am hoping to upgrade is on the arch which I understand from threads will be a couple hundred, and adding the chair covers ($9 if you don't need sashes?) and tiki torches. Has anyone had any experience with the beach area and use of lighting? I bought sashes, table runners, tulle for the arch, personalized votive candle holders, fans for the ceremony and have recently started my OOT bags and centerpieces with either reasonably priced websites or online using Kajiji. Hoping to keep the trend going so I don't spend a small fortune on the resort upgrades. Any help would be much appreciated :) Posted Image

                Any new riu negril brides? Im getting married June 2014 and I have chosen the free package. I want to keep this as simple as possible. I still haven't figured out the details of how I want everything to be but I know I want the minimum. Any suggestions?
