    Hi Ladies,

    Congrats on your pending nuptials.

    My fiance and I are planning a DW in Jamaica for September 2010. We're having a tough time choosing between Riu MoBay and Hilton Rose Hall.

    Thoughts? Words of wisdom?


    Please :)

      I wish I could be of some help to you...I've only seen photos of both resorts and I must say they both look lovely! Best of luck to you in your planning. Picking the resort is one of the toughest parts of the planning process, so make sure to do your research!

        Choosing the resort was definitely the toughest part for me too! I think I must have researched just about every resort on the island before I made a decision. The 2 that you're choosing between both seem to be good for weddings but are pretty different from each other, so if you have a certain style and budget in mind then that should make the decision easier.

        Hilton seems to be the nicer and more upscale of the two, but it is also a lot more expensive based on the info I got. Hilton's least expensive dinner buffet that I saw was $95 pp, with a 50 person minimum. Their open bar prices were expensive also ($30+ pp). In general it seems as though RIU Mobay offers a package that includes all the basics that you need in your wedding package price, and at Hilton it is more customized but the costs can add up quickly.

        Other factors to consider are whether or not you want most of your guests to stay at the wedding resort and if you prefer an all-inclusive hotel, since with RIU Mobay you would have to have 80% of your guests staying there, but it is also very affordable for an all-inclusive.

        There are so many different things to consider with these 2 resorts but I'm not sure if you have already gathered all the info you need to decide or if you are still researching. If you're still researching, this board will be very helpful. Good luck!
