ROR Brides (Riu Ocho Rios)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I have read every single page in this forum and it has been such a great help!

 

This hotel is one of my options for my DW that I am planning for Jan 2014!

 

My Fiance backround is Jamaican, His parents are from there, so I am laughing when you guys say they run on their own time.. THAT they definately do! I have to deal with it here at home! So Im sure if I pick any resrot in Jamaica I will be able to SOMEWHAT deal with "Jamaican time" as we call it lol.  Though Im sure it will still drive me a little bit crazy (it does now!)

 

I think the biggest advice I will take from this is KEEP every email! Sounds like they change their prices a bit, So I will keep a eye on that!

 

I meet with my TA tomorrow to see what they can offer and do, and hopefully have a decision made on what resort we are going to pic!

 

Everyones pics look great. For outside photographers did you just pay for them for the night so that way they are a "guest " and not a vendor?Or can you just get them the day pass for the resort in stead if you are not wanting pics of you getting ready?

 

Im sure I will have more questions to ask later!!

OH THANKS! I havent booked any photographers yet. Im thinking of just taking the free pics that come with the package, and then doing a photo shoot off the resort, Def going to do a TTD session thats what I really want pics of And then have some pics done from the onsite photographer just for whatever is free.  I have a friend who is pretty good with a camera so im sure she can do some pics.

 

When are you getting married there?

IrishGirlMD, could I get Keisha's email information from you, or anyone, please. My vow renewal ceremony is on March 1 of this year, and I still haven't heard from her. I'm thinking maybe I should contact her, but I didn't receive her email in any of my correspondence with the resort.

Sorry Brenda, I just now saw your post.  But that is the correct email that Sunshinybride posted.

 

She never contacted me first, I contacted her.  But she will not "plan" anything until closer to your day.  She will reserve whatever reception you want and answer questions about prices and will email you some pictures.

OK girls so I finally heard back from the corporate office.

 

Her first email was very confusing and vague so my response back was simply, "will I be forced to pay for a private reception if I have 45 guests"  and her response was no.

 

I will say, that she totally copied Keisha on ALL emails.  Thankfully I didn't say anything negative about her or it would have made it very awkward to work with her.  So if you email corporate, be sure to remember that whatever you type, Keisha will see.

 

But I consider it a win.  I'm not paying an extra couple of thousand dollars.  My wallet is very happy.

 

Thanks for the support girls, I never would have known to do that without the knowledge of this forum.  Thanks!  Happy Bride right here.

Hi Irishgirlmd

 

Keisha told me if i had 40+ people going that i would have to pay $10.50 person for everyone that includes me and my FI. I will have to email the corporate to i guess and see what they say. Thank you for posting that.
