    I would love some current information as I am planning an October 12, 2013 wedding there. Right now I have the basic package and had planned to upgrade some items like more wedding cake and champagne(since we expect between 30-35 people) but now am wondering if I should upgrade the whole package. I also would love to hear opinions on the following


    1. How likely is it I can bring items (like centerpieces etc) to decorate without going through the resort to save some $. What decoration extras are essential? 


    2.  I am thinking about doing the semi private dinner and then renting the disco with a DJ for private reception after rather than do the private beach dinner(that would charge $30 a head plus another $600 for set up and then another $500 for DJ). Is the beach thing that much better? I would rather save the $ and pay for an excursion for my guests.  Is the Discoteque dank and dark like someone described it? Could I bring in items to decorate the disco thing?  Could I set up an Ipod at the semi private dinner? 


    3.  Is the steel drum band during the ceremony worth the extra $500?  


    4.  Are there any excursions like a trip to Rick's cafe that are pretty affordable for our group?  Or a vendor you would go through?  


    **sorry for all the questions but would love some help!!

      Hi there, I would love to hear a review from you. I'm getting married at the Riu Negril June 9th 2014.  So far we are having are ceremony at 4pm, semi private dinner at the steakhouse.  We also booked the disco with Dj for 2hrs. If you could send me pictures that would be amazing.  I have read some pretty bad reviews on the resort it self and I know alot of people can be harsh.  What is your honest opinion? 


      I want to here alot about your wedding!!! lol


      who did you use for the flowers did you bring a lot of your own decoration for ceremony and reception?


      Did you use the free arch for the ceremony or did you upgrade ? 


      I'm sure I will have alot more questions but we will start with this lol



      Hope to here from you soon
