        I'm trying not to get TOO excited though - I have a feeling RIU won't allow it!

          I think this is a great idea Just be careful!! I read on another site that the Riu security did not let the delivery people on to the property. But how about if it was an Ocho rios florist, taking a cab into town to pick it up yourself. Hmmmm now this is what I might do. lol By the way I have also read somewhere that the security personal gave some guests of a wedding a hard time trying to get on property. The bride gave them her guests names and they werent allowed to enter and her guests missed the wedding. This is 1 reason why I insisted that all my guests stay at the Riu and not sandels like some guests wanted to.

            good point Jerzzygirl...

            I heard back from the florist (Kreations Flowers)- here is the email she sent me with a picture of a bouquet (I emailed her my colors & asked for her suggestion on types of flowers,etc):

            Hi Heidi
            I have attached a bouquet with roses and white orchids, this I would suggest for the bride US$73.00.

            The same for the brides maids in the hot pink (rose) and green orchids in a round bouquet (not cascading like yours). US$66.00 each

            You have the option of including the coloured roses and orchid in your bouquet

            For the boutineers pink roses mixed with the green orchid US$6.00 each.

            You have the option of givng the groom the white roses and white orchid if you choose white for your bouquet.

            I hope you like this one. Of course we can look at others.

            Best wishes

            Kerry Ann


            Still haven't heard back from Riu yet - but this company's prices are SO MUCH BETTER!!!!

            oh, and here's the picture she sent me of the bridal bouquet that is $73US:

              Hey girls, I am sorry that you are having pricing issues. But I must say that I am glad you guys are having the same issues as me. I have been doubting my decision to go with Beaches since I booked, and wishing I had choosen the Riu. I still wish I had done that, but at least I can see that I am not the only one that is getting surprised by hidden fees!

              I had to pay an extra $1,500 to be able to get married at sunset! The only choices I had were like 11-4. I always wanted to do it at sunset and that package included some upgrades, so I figured why not. But it doesn't include ALL the upgrades I wanted. I think the DW is way more expensive then I originally thought...

                Carly- you are definitely not alone on this one!

                and OMG! an extra $1,500 to have your wedding at sunset?!?! WOW!! though, you wouldn't have even had that option at the Riu - so I guess Beaches is perfect for you!!! (the Riu's latest ceremony time is 4pm)

                    I made mine in Fireworks.

                      I'm glad I'm not the only one. When Mike and I first started talking about this a few years ago, we thought it would cost maybe $5000 for the whole thing. When I told him my estimate had tripled, he didn't understand why. It seems when you book it that everything is included, but obviously it doesn't. Thank god we have this forum because otherwise I would show up the week of my wedding totally unprepared!!!!
