I am new to the DW world. Originally I was planning to have a huge 200+ wedding in Cleveland, but after talking to many friends and family who have already wed decided that a DW is the route to go. I always wanted a smaller more intimate wedding so this seemed like the route to go! Anyways, I know I want to have my wedding in Jamaica, but am debating between Ochos Rios and Negril. Originally I was debating between beaches and RIU, however after doing much research on this wonderful website have come to realize that RIU is much more flexible and less "cookie cutter." I have a few questions for all of you who have either wed at RIU Ochos Rios or Negril
1. Did you do a private reception?
3. Rehearsal Dinner?
4. Did you use the photographer with RIU or hire a photographer on the island? I do not want to fly a photographer from the States so if anyone knows of a good photographer in Jamaica let me know!
5. Do you have a choice of what kind of flowers and decor you want or do you have to choose from what they have?
6. Did anyone have a Catholic ceremony?
Sorry I have so many questions. As you all can tell I am the most indecisive person ever so feedback would be extremely helpful! If anyone has pictures from their RIU wedding...firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks Happy Planning to all!
