Grand Total for Riu Ocho Rios Wedding

Recommended Posts

Whoa guys. I paid a whopping total of 250 for my wedding. I had NO extras. I paid 250 for the minister thats it. I didn't pay a charge for the free wedding. Thats why it's free. 250 covers the minister. So if you had no band no flowers no nothing thats all you would pay! Plus the free wedding comes with 2 bottles of champagne no extra. I had those both at dinner. And rum punch is free.

Again there is NO FEE for the FREE wedding!!!!!!ONLY 250 for the minister fees!!!!!!!!!!! Not 250 + 250...ok good...

 

ETA: unless this has changed since december....I paid 250...and thats it ...plus photography...I have the receipt if anyone needs like visual verification hahahah :)!!

Thanks for clarifying, Calia. That does make a lot more sense. I guess we all misunderstood when we first tried to figure these fees out almost a year ago (and we had no one here who had been married at the ROR yet).

I was looking at this going ...I so did not pay 500 bucks HAHAHA! See the wedding is free when you book 5 rooms. So if you have five guests (including YOU) it's free. And then its not that picky. My mom didn't show up till I was running to my wedding. And she didn't even check IN till after my wedding. So technically I got the free wedding with 4 rooms wink.gif OOps SSSSSSH! Anyways thats why it's free you just have to pay the minister and the fees included. I hope everyone understands now haha!

I guess I was confused b/c their website is confusing. I'm on there right now and it says that the free wedding is $250, but that does not include minister, legal documentation and fees and to qualify for the free wedding you must book 5 rooms. It just doesn't make sense the way that it reads on the website.

 

Oh well, I'm happy b/c now I have an extra $250 in my budget!

That is weird...I guess ask Chandlyn. I did get married in 07 and maybe it changed. But that is how it was when I was there. Maybe someone married in 08 should chime in...where's crawford2b??

I just looked at the free wedding package for 2009 and now they are including sparkling wine and cake for all of the guests (which means you won't need to pay to upgrade your cake or get more champagne). That's a bonus for the 2009 brides!

No, you're right, I think the website is just written very poorly.

We saved a bottle of our champagne and took it home with us to open on our anniversary. None of your guests drank alcohol so one bottle we drank and one we saved! And again both were free wink.gif hahah

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
