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?
I heard Negril is awesome, I can't wait to hear all about it!

I booked my reception and spa appointments already. I am pretty sure most of us did. If you don't want to wait til 1 month before, tell the WC that you would feel better getting confirmation now. I was too nervous to wait til April to book stuff.

I am about 2 1/2 months from my wedding at Riu Negril and I have many of the bigger details already confirmed, I just felt more comfortable doing it ahead of time. But.....my travel agent said that the smaller details don't need to be decided and confirmed until just a few weeks before you go. You can decide a lot of stuff when you are there too. I wouldn't worry at all.

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll get lots of great advice. I sure have!


One thing to keep in mind, and I tell myself this all the time, is that the resorts specialize in weddings--it's thier job. So, while it's a huge deal to us they know what they're doing.


Also, my travel agent said they are doing some major construction on the highways and it can take longer to get to OR than Negril from MoBay. (I hope that doesn't freak anyone out!)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
