    What are Your thoughts on ceremony times?

    We decided on a 3pm wedding for that reason. It gives you plenty of time to do pictures before the sun goes down. It will also give your guests time to freshen up or have free time before dinner. Reception dinners at the Riu are from 6:30-8:30.

      Hi Danielle03, We would have done 3pm if we could have but it was taken .... we are at 5pm but I checked the history online for sunset times in Ocho Rios and it all depends on when you are getting married cause the sunset in May when we are isnt til almost 6:35 ...so I am not too concerned .... http://uk.weather.co...MXX0005?month=5

       

      Check out the link :)  I also wanted some sunset pics on the beach of the hubby and I so I think it will work out perfectly :)

        Hope this helps.

        Hi IrishGirlMD,

         

        Thank you for sharing this information as I'm having the same issues regarding costs for my upcoming wedding in June 2013 as well. I was hoping you could let me know what corporate email you sent your inquiries to and if perhaps you had a contact name as it looks like I'm going to have to email them also to try to striaghten this out.

         

        Thanks in advance :)

            So to confirm if I understand you correctly I'm trying to backtrack on all the threads but there are so many.

             

            You have 40+ guest and are having your dinner on (Pooldeck or whatever) you pay a $600.00 set up fee but do not have to pay the $67.00 per person?

             

            Am I understanding you correctly?

              NO, they were trying to make me pay for the free reception of $600 AND the $67 per person because I have 43 guests.  I'm having the free reception but if you have over 40 they try and make you pay for the reception.  I contacted corporate and they are not making me do for only 3 people over.  They $600 was a rental flat fee, the $67 pp was on top of that.

                  We are doing the noon slot because it was the only time left. Most of the photographers have told me 5:30 for sunset, so i would do 3pm if you have the choice, just depends on what you're looking for. Since we were stuck with noon, we are going to go to Ricks Cafe afterwards for some drinks and then head back around 7 for the reception dinner.

                  Thanks. Yeah I think we will go for the 3pm slot for the same reason :) haven't booked anything as of yet because hearing from another agent if we can get a lower price we were quoted 1720 from winnipeg. How are your guys group rates ?

                  We decided on a 3pm wedding for that reason. It gives you plenty of time to do pictures before the sun goes down. It will also give your guests time to freshen up or have free time before dinner. Reception dinners at the Riu are from 6:30-8:30.

                    We were quoted $1547 thats including taxes out of Toronto for OceanView Junior Suites. Very good price considering they are selling for $2005 now. We got quotes (May 2012) as soon as the packages were available.
