Hey I'm november

Greetings Riu brides, I'm getting married at Riu on November 13, 2013! Pretty exciting, finally under the year mark. IrishGirlMD, I was just wondering how you booked the disco. Did you get into contact with Keisha? I've been waiting for her to get back to me but no luck yet. Hope everyone's planning is

Hello Riu Brides, I'm getting married 11.02.2013 @ Riu Ocho Rios and we just came back from a site visit. We toured the resort and had a chance to view the different wedding and reception locations. We also had lunch at one of the restaurants and was given some jerk chicken from The Hut! We requested the site visit because we had some concerns and as a result we feel a lot better having Riu host our wedding. We booked our wedding October 2012. Riu sent us a confirmation by email, which we had to confirm within 7 days. We are working with a wedding planner for our group accommodations. I am so grateful to have Lisa working with me, because I don't think I could have done this alone. We've had lots of communication with Keisha from Riu and yes it does take a while for her to respond. That's probably the most frustrating part of the planning process, but don't let that spoil your excitement of your special day. This to shall pass... We will not be using the standard wedding cake that comes with the package. We requested a 2 tier traditional Jamaican rum fruit cake with white icing. We were provided with a sample of the cake during our visit. Very Very Nice! And we have our own cake topper. We are brining our own decorations for the wedding and reception. Centerpiece, sash, paper lanterns, and pedals etc... The hard part is out of the way! WooHoo... Please let me know if you have any questions. Future Mrs. Grant

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
