Wedding in 2mo RIU Ocho Rios

Recommended Posts


I've been planning my wedding for just under a year. We're happy not to over-do it, which is why we are going to the RIU in Ocho Rios. I keep thinking we should do OOT bags or pay for the extra stuff, but really...neither of us care. We just want to go down there, hop off the plane, fill Chandlynn in on the bizz and enjoy our time together.

I have been to a wedding on a cruise ship and it was the bare minimum...but it was just perfect.

We have 30 friends and family who are coming with us. Coordinating that was tragic enough. I know they'll be happy just to be on vacation and share our day.

Our rehearsal is on Friday...followed by our rehearsal dinner with all of our guests...for us this is enough of a welcome. Anyone who wants to join us, can stay for the beach party. (I don't want to eat up all of their vacation).

Our wedding is at 1pm followed by drinks at the beach bar while we're getting our pictures taken(our best friends are our wedding photographers). From 3-5 we meet again at the disco for the reception. Dinner is at 6:30. By then, I think most people will be intoxicated enough, so we'll play it by ear.

Sunday, anyone who wants to, can join us for the catamaran cruise that we booked where we are taking our photographers to "trash my dress" www.trashthedress.com in the falls and the ocean and in the foilage.


So that's all of it... I've been working on this long enough, I think I'm done. I'm ready to enjoy my day! Heather

Just wondering if anyone who knows about our resort sees any flaw in our planhuh.gif (is the beach bar always open? is it near the gazebo? what time does the beach party start? will it all work okay?)

    • 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?
