Also we are flying in on 25th but the resort says we need to be there by the 24th. has anyone had this problem w/ arrival requirements?

I think for the ceremony to be legal you have to be there 2 full days before the ceremony and your traveling day does not count. I would check with Valeria and/or Chandlyn ASAP on this! Unless you are just doing a symbolic ceremony, then it may not be a big deal.
Chandlyn will eventually respond to emails but its pretty slow. I think she responds faster when your date gets closer. Just about anything you can think of has already been asked of her and the answer posted here somewhere!

Welcome aboard...any question you have has probably already been answered somewhere on this forum...this is a great place to be! I think you need to travel on the 24th just to be on the safe side. My wedding is 6/28/08 but me and honey are leaving on 6/25.

We're at 2 months out and still haven't heard from Chandlyn, some people are in contact with her way before that. It seems kinda random to be honest.
As for the travel date/wedding date, if you're legally getting married in Jamaica you need to be there 48 hours. The Riu seems to require 72 hours, probably so they can do the organization and stuff. If you have your heart set on getting married September 27th, I would plan on arriving September 24th. The hotel is a bit flexible with the 72 hours in some cases from what I've heard but don't count on it. Also, what if you have any travel delays and don't make it to Jamaica more than 48 hours before your wedding time? That'd be a major problem.
Hope that helps!
