    Congratulations to both of you! Everything looked gorgeous! We are debating between Iberostar RH and Riu (Montego Bay or Ochos Rios)... every time I see pictures, I change my mind!

      I am also getting married at IRHS in may 2010 so these pictures really helped me see different angles of the resort i haven't seen yet.

      I have a few questions for you re: the wedding.
      1. did you bring the white tulle and dangling flowers from home to decorate the huppa? the resort just provides the wood huppa?
      2. where are your bridesmaid dresses from?
      3. did you bring the torches or were they provided by the resort? extra cost?
      4. did you communicate well with Nicole? did she call you w/ questions you had before your wedding? What about the jamaica man who married you the 2nd half of the ceremony? did he speak good english?

      Thanks so much for your help...it means so much. Congrats again to both of you.
      I haven't gotten on in a while, sorry took so long! TO answer your questions:
      1. They provide the huppah and the white tulle, I got the idea for the hanging jeweled orchids from someone on this site: VERY easy to make! I just bought some jeweled Christmas strands that go on a tree, and I bought fake orchids from Hobby Lobby, and strung them on.. And the hotel actually hung them for us!!

      2. I knew I wanted yellow but I couldn't find typical bridesmaid dresses I liked in bridal shops.. We bought them @ Dillards for $53, and they were long so we had them cut and hemmed. Exactly what I wanted! And the girls love them!

      3. The resort provided the tiki torches! no charge.. If you are using the runner, beware of windy days! we had SHOES holding down the runner at some spots, but at that point I didn't care! I just wanted to marry my boy! :)

      4. Nicole is wonderful! I emailed her with questions and she replied promptly. You discuss everything when you have your meeting with them once you get to the resort. The whole "don't worry" thing Jamaicans have is SOOO true: it's hard to get used to when here in America it's all stressful and you want everything to be perfect and you are freaking out! You have to put yourself in Jamaica time and relax, I really had to calm my mom down :)
      And the Jamaican minister was wonderful, he had a beautiful speaking voice, and you could understand him very well.

      All in all- wonderful resort, everyone LOVED it!! Email me if you have any more questions! Good luck with your planning!!

              I believe you can bring your own photographer. We are bringing ours from the States and when I went for a site visit, I asked and they say it was not a problem.
