Married and back from RPTB!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


Just returned from our wedding in Negril, Jamaica at the RPTB. It was amazing and couldn't have asked for a better wedding/trip. I will break down my review as best as possible to help any future RPTB brides!


Drive there: No doubt it is scary, rough, and way longer than they say. Expect at least to be on the van for 2 hours and will make a "PIT stop" on the way for travellers that want a buzz! ;0(


Resort: Amazing! Check in - Easy! Check out the same way! Staff is wonderful. 24 hour room service, liquour dispenser in your room...restocked daily. A/C not all that cool in our room and we had cold water one night. Besides that though the rooms were very spacious and very clean. 2 Gift shops at the resort and vendors will come in every other night with really cool items.


Food/Drinks: Food at the buffet good, food at the speciality restaurants AMAZING. I ate at all of them minus Krystal. LOVED them all! Drinks were always great! I pretty tried them all! Some were def strong too! Jerk Chicken Hut never made it there but one of my guests did and I tasted it very yummy!


Entertainment: During the day there was water aerboics and volleyball. Looked fun didn't try it. Some of my friends did and they loved it! Nightly entertainment was alright - nothing too fantastic but good to do for something at night. Def not any great entertainment after the show ends, but I was so tired each night I was in bed by 11 anyway.


Wedding Coordinator: Keneika was amazing! Not a bad thing to say about her! She was on top of her game!


Wedding Ceremony: Mine was held at one of the Gazebos and it was HOT HOT HOT! The officant was great! They screwed up my music for a brief second and then got it fixed. After the ceremony we went to the beach for pics. Not nearly as private but ALOT cooler!


Reception: We had ours in the steakhouse it was my group and another wedding group in there! Which was nice! Our cake was cute we brought our own cake topper though bc we didnt want our names on the cake! The food was amazing too!


If you have any other questions please PM me!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
