    Hi, my name is Linsey, and my fiancee and I are planning to get married in Jamaica at Riu Ocho Rios in October 2010. We're planning to have a reception back home in Chicago after we return. We are planning to invite about 25-30 guests to the wedding (parents, grandparents, siblings, nieces, nephews, and best friends) and expect to have 150 guests at the reception.

    I'm interested to hear from other brides who are planning ROR weddings and how it has been communicating (or not) with the ROR wedding coordinator. I'd also to like to hear from people who are facing the challenges associated with having a destination wedding followed by a reception back home for the rest of the family and friends. Two dresses or one? How to word the invitations? I'm excited for the planning!!!!!

              Hi Linsey

              Congratulations on your engagement. I am also planning a Riu Ocho Rios wedding in May 2011. I have been in contact with Chandlyn through email a few times getting some prices and info. I can't book anything till March 2010 so there really isn't much more I can do right now. We are planning a beach ceremony, dinner at one of the restaurants and renting out the disco for two hours that night. I am not planning on having a reception back at home. We just want to have a small wedding with close family and friends (about 30). I am getting more excited as time goes on. Good luck with all your planning.
