Jamaican wedding, but which resort?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


My name is Jenn. My fiance Mike and I are planning an October 2010 wedding in Jamaica but we are stuck between the Riu Palace Tropical Bay, and the Iberostar Rose Hall Suites. He likes the Riu, I like the Iberostar. I would love to hear anyone's thoughts on the two - and maybe some suggestions as to which one would provide a better wedding experience. They say planning a destination wedding is supposed to be less stressful, but so far picking a resort has been one of the toughest decisions of my life! To please oneself, and to please your guests...... so tough!

Welcome and Congrats! We got married at RPTB in April, stayed for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. There's TONS of info in the Jamaica forum that might make your decision easier. Choosing the resort was definately the hardest part. You can check out my RPTB review, the link is in my siggy. I've linked most of our photos from our wedding/honeymoon at the bottom of the review. Our wedding was very no frills and we didn't do anything extra (that's the way we wanted it!), but feel free to PM if you have any questions! Iberostar looks amazing as well, so I'm pretty sure your wedding will be amazing no matter where you decide!

I was debating on getting married at the Iberostar but they do not offer a free wedding package whereas the Riu does..girls on this forum have been married at both so just do a search and you will find info for them. In the end, I picked Breezes Runaway Bay lol. Good luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
