RIU Montego Bay Wedding Review

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting this! It was helpful. You had a couple of bumps, but overall it sounded okay. My fiance and I are getting married there in June 2012. Would you stay at this hotel again? Thanks!

Good Morning Ladies!  I got married at the RIU Montego Bay in August 2013 and it was wonderful.  It was held on the beach at 4 pm and then we had the private reception upstairs at the steak house restaurants.  I hired my own photographer who was absolutely AMAZING and cost us way less than the photographer that the hotel has.  He edited a few of the pictures for me and then put all the pictures on a USB key (which I provided him) and they came home with me.  I also hired a local dj to come and play for us and our guests since it was a private function.  Paid him $500 (+$150 vendor fee to RIU which I feel si a rip off) but he played during dinner and then for 2.5 hours afterwards.  My guests loved him!! He played songs that suggested (even though some were obscure, but he found them) and then spun others that everyone danced to.  The whole time after dinner everyone was on the terrace dancing and having fun.

 

I am happy to share a few of the pictures if anyone is interested and also to provide you names and details of the photographer and DJ.  (Kevin aka Big Red and Jermaine aka Flex).  Also, let me know if you have any others questions about wedding site.

 

Message me if you would like this information.

 

Cheers,

Lisa

Hello, I am planning a wedding in Jamaica and I just had a few questions about yours. Where was your ceremony held and which wedding package did you choose? Was there a sound system and microphone included in the package for the ceremony and your private reception or was it extra? How much more did you have to pay for the private reception? Would you be able to send me pictures of your ceremony and reception? I would like to have a better idea of the decorations that they offer because I am wondering if I should bring some stuff down. Thanks so much and my email is sophorn_h@yahoo.ca

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
