Beautiful pics! I love the sunset photo if you and your hubby. And I love the closeup with your bouquet, it shows the jewels nicely

I was talking to my dad about the photo booth the other day, and I was like "you can use me as a flash reflector!" hahaha. I need to do something about this because I look sickly white :P

I didn't pre tan before we left at all!! People were like "izzy you're going to burn so bad", turns out I burnt the least over everyone who pre tanned Made me laugh pretty hard! Before the first couple of days you could've used my legs for the flash reflector as well
Too funny ladies! @perianjay @TinkerSofi

Hello ladies I apologize for not posting more sooner! Just been slipping my mind as of late.

I would personally rate the Riu Montego Bay Jamaica a 4.3 out of 5 stars; just because there is no room service, and I love being able to get room service
The rooms were also a decent walk depending on what building you are put in (I personally liked it because it was a beautiful walk!).
Our group arrived fairly early the Saturday so of course our rooms weren't quite ready yet; though some were, which wasn't a problem at all because everyone had planned for this ahead of time. (Like I said we knew we were getting there before 1:30 so our rooms wouldn't be quite ready) Upon arrival my then FI and I were immediately bumped up to an oceanfront room free of cost The room was gorgeous and pretty big, with an incredible balcony that held a breathtaking view of the beach and ocean!

There were 43 of us all there and no one had any difficulty with their rooms or being able to have a lounge chair by the pool. The hotel was very accommodating towards my mom and grandmother who both have very bad knees and was able to give them rooms in the closest building to the pool!
The food was delicious and everyone loved it! Yes the al Le carts are buffet style but that's fine because there are so many choices and you can go back for more and more!! The sushi and the steak house were probably my favourites!! The staff are incredibly friendly and easy to get a long with. Always were willing to lend an extra hand if needed

The disco is pretty cramped and hot so never really spent any time there; my husband who can dance like a fiend (was actually in a dance crew back in the day lol) got video taped a few times dancing, and on the night of our wedding EVERYONE was taking pictures of me LOL! I'll never get to see any of them but it made me feel really pretty

The ladies at the spa are very good at what they do! They were able to recreate the type of look I was going for with ease. The girls did a fantastic job on my extensions and wouldn't change a thing! The girl who did my hair (nakoe?) actually took the time out of her day to come see me after the ceremony to congratulate me!

Our DJ Kevan Stewart did a really great job! Didn't really play any of the music during the reception that I had asked for, but that was fine and I didn't really notice till the next day. But he had some great ideas for the flow of the ceremony and the timing of certain things and events; ie: cake cutting, and speeches. Kevan did a great job being our MC and I would recommend him to anyone getting married in Jamaica!!

Our ceremony was at the plaza gazebo and everything went spectacularly! The setting was beautiful and tons of people from the resort took seats outside the area by the bar to watch and clap for us! Even though our ceremony was at 4pm it was still pretty warm but no one passed out (not even me lol) and pretty much everyone cried during the ceremony. I almost cried but was able to buckle down haha!

My close family friend who was also our photographer took over 1400 photos the day of the wedding so will hopefully be receiving those shortly! My husband and I did a first look session where he almost burst out bawling! It was so cute

Our private reception was held at the steakhouse al Le carte and the food was to die for!! The roof is also a beautiful setting for a wedding reception with a massive space for a dance floor and tons of room for tables to seat 10 guests each! It was such a magical night.

Nekeisha who was our WC was a dream!! She went above and beyond anything I asked and was willing to go the extra mile to make my special day the best it could be! She was very easy to work with and made everything flow the way it needed to.

The pool was lovely and we never had a problem getting a spot for our group! We didn't really go to the beach much since it isn't the nicest and most people preferred the pool anyways!! The hotel really wasn't that busy at all which I figured it would be.

I would definitely recommend the Riu Montego Bay to future brides!
