I believe this is the newer one. There is a lot of useful information within the 48 pages. Just read a little bit at a time. You will usually find anything you are thinking of asking :)

You can probably just have your wedding all together at a off site location for less then what you will have to pay for the guests to come to the resort. I think their rule is a bit ridiculous as My fi has family in Jamiaca too. Thankfully I dont think there will be too much of a issue. They also have the option Of gtting a room at the resort, I think 4 to a room and they could split it. That way no day pass, and they can stay the night and have fun AND be apart of that 80 %.

 

But you could always just try and find somewhere off site all together to have the whole thing. ;/

Hello Former and Future ROR Brides,

 

I am having quite a lil dilemma...As much as I would love to Have my Ceremony and Reception at ROR it seems to be getting a little more and more difficult as far as guests. I am booked and confirmed at the ROR in July 2013. I opted to go with the free package and do upgrades. Now here is my lil situation!...lol...My husband is from jamaica. We are renewing our vows (14yrs) this year July. For the free package I can get the minimum 5 room bookings from guests the only issue is that I dont think 80% of my guests would be staying at the resort. Now I am up in the air. Because I would love to know if I can have my ceremony only at the resort and have my reception elsewhere. I am thinking The Ruins at the Falls in Ocho Rios. I always dreamt of having a DW but the 80/20 rule the hotel has... looks like it may be an issue. Has anyone just done the ceremony at RIU and reception elsewhere?...if so did you still have to pay the astronomical day pass of $80pp...Im just afraid of having over 40 people and having to be forced to pay thousands later on and it seems as though theres more and more fees with the resort...Can someone help shed a light?...Im hoping to be able to plan the ceremony at the resort and have my reception off grounds...Im trying to go the most economical way but any way I slice the cake it costs something I cant seem to find a middle ground.

Yeah she has been responding to me pretty quickly! I would send her another email and just let her know that you are still waiting to her from her. I find she answers what she wants to answer. Some of my questions werent answered in my email She just answerd the ones she wanted lol

Hey Bride2013k

 

We found that if you only ask one question at a time she will answer you faster. We have been emailing her for ouver 2 months now and she has got back to us within a day or two.

LOL, I did the same and then finally she answered me after 3 emails asking for a response and 3 weeks later --but it was only because my photographer I hired happens to know her and called her and asked her to get back to me LOL ....I love my photographer already!!  Good luck!

hi

 

we are looking to have our wedding may 2014

 

just a little confused about having a large group of guest and how charges apply?

 

i have about 40 guests travelling from the UK and will be staying at the resort and say 20guest from JA  which will need a day pass. so 60 guests in total

 

i understand that if you have 40 guest + we are forced to a private dinner which is fine because thats what we wanted, we also chose the caprice package which accomadates 20 ppl, does that mean we pay $67 for 40 guests all the whole 60 guests?

 

Also i have been trying to look for pictures of the ballroom terrance, pool side deck for the dinner and reception. if any of you have any can you please email chenandjay@hotmail.co.uk

 

so just so i have an idea of how the day will go, our wedding time is 1pm, dinner is ar 6.30-8.30, if we are having private reception would the dinner and reception be in one place rather then having to go from one place to another. i believe the reception also closes at 11. we want to hire a dj for the 2hours during the reception which is when we plan on doing the first dance and stuff.

 

so for 60 guest, private dinner and reception with hire of dj. how much do you think we will be looking at?

 

This would be a great help

 

hope to hear from you all chenandjay@hotmail.co.uk

 

Chen + Jerome

    • 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?
