RMB Wedding Review by Mother of Bride
Posted 21 July 2009 - 10:16 PM
My daughter got married the week of June 21st at RMB. We had some WC issues prior to the wedding (due to the change of personnel ) but once we got there, Sherika took care of the details & escorted the FOB & bride to the beach & Roxiana was at the wedding site to help with the music. (the bride & grooms choice of music on RMB sound system) Marie got married on the far end of the beach (had champagne right after the ceremony) & we liked that location due to its privacy (compared to the gazebos which had some "gawkers") They qualified for the "free package" (we had 25 people--13 rooms) and just added a few extra bouquets for the wedding party. The cost of the minister was $350 & the extra flowers only cost $100.
She just had the palm leaf archway (w/ fresh flowers attached) and that was just fine & looked really nice on the photos. Her wedding was at 2pm & then we hung out at the Exodus Bar until the dinner at Mahoe Bay at 6:30. (some guests went swimming or back to room to rest) We were fortunate enough to have the upstairs of the restaurant all to ourselves (there were no other weddings that day) so we used an Ipod dock for mood music & had the family & wedding party toasts prior to the meal & they had a "first dance" afterwards. The two waiters were very attentive & the meal was very good...we had choice of several meats: chicken, ribs, steak, fish, etc. with potatoes, vegetables & the salad bar (which is downstairs) Wine was also served.
The cake was what we ordered, (chocolate w/ yummy strawberry filling ) w/white frosting & decorated w/ silk flowers we had brought along. We also had some chiffon material & colored stones on cake table & we brought simple table favors for each place setting & were satified with the plates, glasses, and table linens they provided. We were especially happy that Mahoe Bay Steakhouse has the open-air concept & we got to see a beautiful sunset just prior to our meal. Marie did not want to stress out with all sorts of complicated details so we kept things very simple & really the only thing that went wrong was that instead of the "free" yellow & white daisy bouquet she ordered, she got pink carnations. We never really got an explanation or apology, but there was nothing that could be done, (flowers were delivered to room, 5 minutes prior to wedding) so she just moved ahead & didn't "freak out" The funny part is now that we look at the pictures, the pink flowers really "popped" in the photos & definitely lasted longer than the daisies would have. We just laugh out loud about it now....all in all everything went very well.....I would recommend the RMB to anyone & we had a WONDERFUL family vacation in addition to a beautiful wedding day for our daughter.
My comment to most brides would be just to chill out, get the basic things figured out before-hand, but really, most things can be finalized once you get there. And DON'T sweat the small stuff !! Just keep remembering you are marrying the love of your life & you need to enjoy the experience and not fret about the few things that could go wrong.
A VERY happy Mother of the Bride....KAY
