Hi all,

 

I just found this site, wish it had been earlier as I've seen a lot of people picked Ochos Rios over Negril... undecided.gif

 

I am getting married in Negril, at the Riu Negril, on May 16, 2008, it's coming up fast!!!

Then it's a good thing that you picked Negril, since there are so many people who want as much info as they can get on lots of places! You can add some good input! Welcome!

Hey Lizz, that's crazy we're getting married on the same day! So, you're the one that had my spot booked at ROR- JUST KIDDING!! We looked there too, but it was full that weekend. wink.gif

 

So my only question is do I really have to wait until a month before to plan all the details? That seems crazy to me and I think I might go insane before that!

If you have your heart set on the ROR, you should try to call them. I originally had the 12:00 slot, but then there were 2 cancellations and I was able to move to 4:00. This was in the past month, so they may be available, but not on the website.
As you read more on the forum (especially the Jamaica section), you'll see that most of us are crazy and are doing as much as we can before we go there. Let us know what you want to plan and we'll try to help you out!

That's interesting! Thanks for the input. I am going to stay in Negril though b/c I've read the beaches are better and my family is more into hanging on the beach than anything else. We'll save the excursions for the honeymoon! wink.gif We're moving to a Sandals for that part of the trip!

So, planning-wise, I just wanted to know if we were supposed to have things like the reception dinner and spa reservations booked by now, but I emailed a Riu wedding coordinator and all she said was don't worry about any of that till 1 month before...is it better to call them then? Should I be worried?

    • 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!!
