ROR Brides (Riu Ocho Rios)

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

 

I haven't been to active on the boards lately.  Unfortunately I lost one of my dearest friends to Cancer today, and it made me think.  Life is too short to be hung up on expensive decor and worrying about what people think...enjoy all the time you have with loved ones.  I have 40 people coming with me and they are there because they care.  The only person that will know about the lack of details is ME!  I am also having an AHR so I just spoke to Keisha and decided today to scale down to the basic wedding, semi-private dinner and hit the disco with open bar and DJ.  I have a fun group, so we are gonna have fun regardless.  Although these boards have been really helpful, I would prefer to break the bank for my relaxed Island Casual AHR back home.  I even had the nerve to change my colors for my AHR  (different party, different colors) and YES... I will wear my dress again... (i may change later on in the night)  Use these boards to network, vent, and find out information, but don' t get so caught up in detail, your guests won't know the difference anyway.  save yourself thousands of dollars on overpriced items and have fun.. Happy Planning, I hope everyone is having a great day :)

I'll try to start throwing together a review....

 

in the meantime, my fb is www.facebook.com/misti.hagemann.  You can go there for pics.  I wont be on here too much so if you have any q's email me at mistinicole@yahoo.com.  I prob wont have TOO MANY answers since I went basically free all the way, but I'll answer what I can.

 

Oh! and for those of you looking for a photographer, i researched photographers out there for HOURS and DAYS but couldn't afford anyone I really liked.  it ended up being cheaper for me to fly a internationally acclaimed photographer out there (www.erickpozos.com, www.erickpozosblog.com) to take 2 days of pics than their ridiculous prices.  He's absolutely amazing.  ....and as sweet and humble as it gets.  seriously.  www.facebook.com/erickpozos

 

 

Best wishes... and DONT WORRYYYYY!

 

There was only 3 emails between the WC and I before I got there (really, she only answered ONE with my question list).  I just picked from a picture book upon arrival and everything was (almost) perfect!!!!!!

 

Ok, now onto my review....

 

Cheers!

So sorry for your loss.  Life is definitely too short.  What you said below is so true.  Keep it simple.  The guests will know NO difference at all!  They will just be happy to be there in a beautiful location with you.  Our guests did the beach party and the disco after our semi-private dinner.  It was great since we had an AHR as well and splurged on it.  Best wishes.
