Riu-Montego Bay

Recommended Posts

wow so much info!  I am so glad I found this site.  Getting married at RMB in Dec 2012!  I have seen a couple people mention Stacey Clark for pics?? I have only info about the one through the resort....I am doing a very small private ceremony.  Only 4 guests, my fiance and I and our 3 children....I don't want to spend that much on photography?  or do I?

Gettinready, the answer to you photography question is, YES, you do want to spend the money, IF it is in your budget.  I'm sure Jwed will agree with me when I say that Stacey Clarke was the best investment that we made.  Check out our wedding slide show.   At the end of the day, this(and a ton more photos) are what we have to remember our wedding day!

@jwed, Riu Montego Bay was not even on my radar until I stumbled upon your review. Your wedding looks absolutely beautiful! My fiance and I are in the early stages of planning and are hoping to do a site visit and June to decide on a venue. The Riu is one of our top 3. How many guests did you have? I really have my heart set on a full, private reception but dont want to be stuck paying a fortune.

@kaitstr I'm so glad the review was helpful! We ended up with about 50 people total at the wedding. When you're looking at wedding packages offered by the resorts, make sure you look at how many guests the packages account for. For example, the free wedding package is only for like 4 guests. We went with the Caprice package and reserved the Mahoe Bay Steakhouse for the reception. I highly recommend it :)

Congratulations jrob!  I got married at RMB last June, and my husband and I are going back this June to celebrate our 1 year anniversary.  Planning our anniversary trip reminded me of how much fun I had when I was planning my wedding, so I thought I would drop in and see what's goin on over here.  My wedding review post is hanging around somewhere on this website, and if you have any questions feel free to send me a message!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
