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?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
