RIU OCHO RIOS REVIEW - our July 20, 2010 wedding and our stay at the resort *PHOTOS**

Recommended Posts

Your pictures make me really excited!  I have 6 months to go, but I think it will go quick!

 

Thanks for all the info... I have one question, not sure if you can answer it...  I see you had a steel drum band, but if you don't go with that option, do you know if you can have music (i.e CD, iPod) for the ceremony at all?


Thanks :)

I did see a wedding that was a few days before mine that had speakers set up to provide ceremony music.  I believe that they can accommodate cds and ipods.  I would even bring both with the songs you want to play as I did because we found out when we were there that our cds weren't compatible with their cd players - thankfully friends of mine had the songs on their ipod!

 

6 months will fly by!  congratulations!!!

We did rent the beach bar for the after dinner reception at $15 per person. The dj was also an additional cost.

 

Tai Flora did my flowers and they have an incredible selection!  I don't know how you would pack flowers if you are going to try to get everything into one suitcase especially since my luggage got so man-handled on the trip!  I would get in touch with Tai Flora and ask them if they have or can get the flowers you want.  I was working with Jennievie - ochorios@taiflora.com

 

Tal Flora also did my centre pieces.  We had a luggage restriction of 2 bags per person flying into Montego Bay and there was no way  I would have brought centre pieces.  I just told them I wanted simple white flowers in vases with candles and they totally delivered!  the dinner decorations were also brought down to the beach reception so we got to use them all night!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
