    Our ROR Wedding was great!

    Firstly Congratulations to you both, I am curious about the 3g you spent in upgades as you didnt use the photographer would you mind sharing what these were . My son is getting married on March 4 so we are off there in two weeks and any information would be great . Can you remember what the photographer charges even though you didnt use him.
  3. Hi we have just done this as my son is getting married at ROR in March . WE found out that only Lawyers can Notarise ,and not all lawyers do it . take the photocopies and the original to the lawyer,they compare them and issue a notarised letter for each and stamp both, this costs around $50 canadian each copy . I hear a lot of brides are scanning and emailing the copies as its a lot cheaper than sending by courier ,hope this is helpful.

Ok this is exactly what our travel agent told us, but we never got the confirmation, so we don't know if the TA completed the booking, or forgot.

    Quote: Originally Posted by MoBride I'm confused. Who told your son and future daughter in law that their wedding was booked and that they had a confirmed ceremony date and time? The Travel Agent told us they were on the phone with the RIU Ocho Rios wedding planner and booking the time slot and day, this was August 2007 and we had to send deposits for everyone for the trip at this time. It was like a closing pressure for the sale. We did send deposits and have been waiting for confirmation of the date for the ceremony and the trip ever since. Our Agent has not said we needed to go online and book the ceremony direct with a credit card deposit, she said she was doing this. The Agent still has not given us the confirmation # for the trip. We had worked out for ourselves the website direct booking thing with the RIU and tried to do this, thats when we found out that we needed this confirmation #, also the RIU website wants the reservation as well which we don't have. So right now we have a new confirmation # from the RIU and we need the booking reservation# from presumably the tour operator, which we are asking our travel agent for.

We have also emailed the regional wedding planner at the RIU group in Jamacia as well as the RIU Ochos Rios wedding planner, but have not heard back yet (week ago). Lizz: When you went on the RIU website with your confirmation # did you book the day & time of the ceremony, as well as the reception restaurant venue and time?
  11. Hi everyone, my son is meant to be getting married in Ochos Rios in March, But we have hit a major problem,we are unable to get a confirmed time and date for the ceremony by either the travel agent or Hotel after lots of unanswered e mails , WE are only a week away from everbody having to pay in full , we paid the deposits back in the summer this year with the promise of dates and times being booked then . to all newly married brides from Riu Ochos Rios was this all confirmed before you arrived and if so by the agent or hotel? to future brides do you have this all confirmed ? Please help as I feel we might have to cancel the whole wedding.
