RIU Montego Bay

Recommended Posts

So my wedding is in October....Never dreamed of being married so I have NO idea what I want. I decided that a destination would be easier and less planning on my part. We have yet to find a Photographer...any suggestions?

Hello,

First of all, congrats on your upcoming wedding!! We are getting married at the RIU Montego Bay on November 17, 2012.  Our photographer is Michael, from Best Images  Wedding Photography. Their website is http://www.photoshopjamaica.com/

 

Michael seems really nice, and gets back to emails ASAP.

 

How is the rest of your wedding planning going? Where are you getting married at, at the resort? We are having our wedding at the beach gazebo. And reception on the beach as well. I am so excited!!!

Congrats on your upcoming wedding! I am getting married at RIU Montego Bay on May 11, 2012...30 DAYS!!!  Wooho!

 

We also are using Michael from Best Images Wedding Photography.  There are a couple reasons...he is very close with the RIU resorts and is very familiar with all of them. Also, he responds very quickly and we found his pricing reasonable.  I have read some not so great reviews about him but I have also read some great reviews plus his pictures seem to come out great!

 

We are also getting married at the beach gazebo but we are having our reception at the steak house and renting out the disco for after the reception.

Hi MrsHamblett2012,

I was reading your posts from another thread, and some others' post as well. Now I am thinking of getting married on the west beach where it is more private. I think I read a review where someone posted that they were getting married at the gazebo but decided against it, because it is in the middle of the beach, and everyone would be out, so they wanted something a little more private. I have to talk to the WCs about that.

 

May 11th is going to be here before you know it! How exciting!!! :)  Are you doing OOT bags for your guests?

I was married at the RIU Montego Bay in September 2010.  We used Marcia Roberts as our photographer and I can't say enough about them (there were 3 photographers).  They did an amazing job!!!!  Happy planning.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
