    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!)
