    We are getting married at the ROR on 10/26/09. We will be staying at the RIU from 10/21 thru 10/31. What plans has everyone made so far for October weddings? Do you make alot of decisions once you are at the resort and sitting with your wed cordinator? All I have done is work on my OOT gift bags, I have my wedding dress, we have our wedding CD, we pretty much have our wedding vows written. I feel like I should be doing more? I have been married before but this is actually my first "wedding ceremony". Please send advice!

        So I just received some really bad news-the main pool at my resort is going to be closed the entire time we are there for repairs!!! Our reception is booked in a restaurant that overlooks the pool (which will now be a construction site) and some of my guests are being told they are receiving a small refund from the resort due to the disruption while others are being told they receive nothing!!!! Very stressful!! I am not bothered about the pool for myself or my FI but I have 28 other people to consider. This is the only pool that has a swim up bar. I would not have booked this resort for my wedding (or expected other people to come here) if I had known the pool would be closed. I have people coming from Canada, Scotland and the US so we are all booked through different tour company's which makes it even more difficult because we are all receiving different information. I just keep reminding myself in six months I will look back at this and laugh..... (i hope!)

          that sucks abt the Grand Palladium pool being closed - sorry

          Anyways, I am 10.10.09 at the Grand Lido Negril yaaay 30 more days!!! we have 63 guests confirmed and all booked up!! woohoo - a few last stragglers but they are on their own at this point = /

          we are pretty much done with everything. i have my final fitting next week, marc's suit is just about done and all of our DIY projects will be finished tomorrow night during "girls night at my house"

          advice to all you ladies - don't stress, it's not worth it, cause you can't do much about it to change some things and you can't control most of it until you get there anyways
          Good Luck to everyone!!!
