Hi everyone. I am Elle and I got engaged in April of 2014, I chose a wedding date of Nov 1, 2014 in Ocho Rios at the RUI hotel. I am somewhat regretting the decision based on some of the photos of the hotel I have seen. I made a rushed decision due to my travel agent pressing me to hurry and pick a location, and I had to think about accomodating kids, which would be harder. I feel like i was pressured and now I regret it. A lot of family have their flights, and some have even booked the room so I doubt I can change it now. But I want to know if anyone used this hotel and they were happy with it.
Also, my hair and make up girls can't make it so I am concerned that I won't get the look I want to have. And I am freaking about a photographer. I like the guy on the site because he is very helpful with planning, though I should have spoken to my planner by now and I have not! He gave me a lot of good pointers on how the sun sets in Ocho Rios and when the best time to have the wedding would be. But I should probably get other quotes. I say this because most of his photos are on the resort and I am not impressed with that location anymore, now that I have had time to see other locations.
That bring me to my last point, I have been so busy at work that I have barely had time to find a gown! I happen to be very tall (6'0) so I had to get a gown that didn't require extra length. That was a TASK. I found one but it is late. I don't have it yet. I am 3 months away from my wedding date. I am so busy at work, with travel and getting promotions that I am afraid I am going to fall apart at the seams! I will stop rambling now.
I just needed to vent and get some suggestions or help or advice or some tranquilizers! Geez!!
