    does this mean you won't get the additional suitcase allowance for your dress?

      Hi there, hope you don't mind me joining in but I am another ROR bride that has booked through Thomsons for my wedding. I am getting married on 22nd July, and going out 14th - 28th July.

      I have to say I don't think that Thomsons have been the most helpful people! I was given my wedding date by Thomsons but told that everything else regarding knowing the wedding time and any extra's we wanted to book couldnt be done until we were out there.

      After going on this forum I could see that people knew when they were getting married and had booked all the extra's, so I decided to contact the hotels wedding co-ordinator directly, who told me what time we were getting married (which we have since changed as they gave us 11am and we have extra guests arriving the evening before), we have booked extras like the steel band, evening reception, photographer etc. So I would say anything that you want go directly to Chandlyn, she has been a real star!

      Do you know what you are doing about taking your dresses, are you able to take them on as hanging hand luggage?

      Wishing you all the best for your weddings, I am so excited and am counting the days till I go xx

        Hi its great to hear from another brit ROR bride!

        My story is exactly the same as yours, if i hadn't found this site i too would be getting married at 11am (even though we asked for the 4pm slot). In the end Thomson did managed to re-arrange the correct time but on a different date.
        Thomson also told me that any extras we wanted would have to be booked out there but we've also gone direct with Chandlyn to secure our bookings, restaurant etc.

        I'm planning on taking my dress as hand luggage, but i'm placing it into a cabin size trolley case (if it fits!) I was told if i take it hanging they can't guarantee a space for it to hang and it would prob have to go in the overhead. We are allowed an extra suitcase though (in the hold) for the wedding dress but i'm going to fill that with extra clothes etc, lol!

          Its great to hear you can get an extra case for the dress, I was wondering how you were supposed to transport it. It would be my nightmare to get there and there be no dress !!!

            Thanks so much for your info, I think that I will do the same as you, if I put it in a cabin size bag there is also no way of my hubby to be sneaking a peak!!
