          Hey Ladies, My wedding is June 28, 2013. I have stayed at Riu Ochoa Rios about 7 years ago and loved it. So for my wedding I decided to try RMB. I am super excited. I recently booked my photo/video through Michael (resort photographer). I have been in contact with the florist from Taiflora but I haven't booked anything yet.

              Good luck with the dress shopping. I found my dress at David's Bridal and I have a seamstress that will customize it the way I want it. I didn't find anything that I loved so I bought something affordable and close to what I wanted and the seamstress will do the rest.

                I am getting married June 22nd at Riu in Montego Bay!  So excited! I have found my dress-so don't discount consignment shops.  I found mine there, and it needs no alterations or anything, it is just ready to go and I absolutely love it, and paid way less than what I would have for it outright.  I haven't been contacted by the florist down there yet, but I have booked with Michael so far for both photos and videography.  I also rented out the disco, but not exactly sure about it.  What types of things are you ladies taking down there with you, as for like decorations and such?

                  Hi Ladies!

                  Here is what I am taking with

                  Ceremony: all silk flowers, all of the girls bouquets, guys boutonnieres and corsages for family members. All of the packages come with a free bouquet and boutonniere for the groom, but all of the pictures I’ve seen I wasn’t a big fan. Also, it is really expensive to purchase all of the others flowers. I spend a couple hundred on silk and they look amazing. The left over flowers I will give to decorate my cake.

                  Fan programs for each chair

                   

                  I am having the private beach reception without dinner.. so after dinner(semi- private steak house) we will dance on the sand under the stars (weather permitting).

                  OOT bags(bridal party ONLY): ibuprofen, Gatorade powder packets, mini first aid kit, tums, snacks (no chocolate, it will melt!), eye drops, tide to go wipes, mini sun screen, chap stick, wedding day itinerary.

                  Each bag came to around $14 dollars.  

                   

                  RIU MoBay is fantastic. I have been 5 or 6 times.. and can't seem to get myself/family to go to any other resort- because there is nothing that compares. Pool bar and jerk chicken on the beach is unbeatable.

                    Hi everyone, 

                    Oh wow!!!  @ashley you've been 5 or 6 times. That is encouraging. Can't wait!!!

                     

                    I found my dress and paid for my dress everyone....whooohooow! It will arrive around April they say. Can't wait to see it. 

                    It's slowly coming along. Next thing on my check list....invitations. 

                     

                    I'm hoping to bring with me the all silk flowers,  girls bouquets,  boutonnieres and corsages for family members too. I've booked the private meal at steak house. How is the food at steak house??

                    How many in your bridal party? Got 4 of my gurly gurls coming. :)

                      oh, goodness.. we each have 8 people on each side, and all coming! (38 people booked so far)

                      yes, all my silk flowers are pretty much finished, and for all flowers it was only around $250.00... and they look real- and gorgeous!

                      the food at the steak house is really good, and i've had it every time i've been there. the only thing they don't really explain to you is that for the first two courses, (salad/app/soup) is not served to you. it is all buffet style. the only thing actually served on a plate to you is your main course. i don't mind it though, because then no appetizers go to waste and you can pick what you like. dessert is also buffet style, but i think it would be served during the reception? i can let you know after my wedding :)
