    Hello

    TA said that it is not routine to confirm wedding with Ocean blue until 12months before. They will then confirm the wedding date and send details such as wedding package / options etc. On booking we were told it would take 7 days to confirm - then 14 days - one month later we told it still not going to be confirmed for at least another 2 months!

    want to plan!

    They still haven't guaranteed that I will have my wedding then! All they seem to want to do is get the money!

      PS - forgot to add. TA said never mind it will be likely to be ok considering we are booking over 12 months ahead

      Well if we can't have our wedding then don't take our £6K!

        You're lucky my TA wouldn't even book my wedding I had to do it myself!!

        Mind you i think i'd be contacting the hotel myself and asking them to confirm - don't take any crap off them some TA's in UK are shocking

          so they took your deposit and aren't confirming for two months? WTF they shouldn't take a deposit so early if they dont confirm.

            I booked my wedding with the WC of Ocean Blue directly once I booked my holiday and knew what day I wanted.

            Because I had contacted her so far in advance I was the first in line to choose the time when it came time for her to book with the officiant. Turned out we went with a symbolic anyway, so we had our first choice in time. The other wedding that day had to work around my schedule.

              Can't you just contact the WC yourself?

                ^^ I agree with you.
                Contact the WC yourself. Why do you need TA to do it? If she can't confirm it, do NOT give her 6K of your loot.

                    This is how I did it too, I contacted the WC direct, we booked the holiday online so we don't have a travel agent, then I got in contact with WC myself to see if they had about 3 dates free, that I was considering and then just had the 10th July confirmed. I did this last August 07, for the wedding in July 08. I would try contacting direct.

                      When I contacted WC at ocean they said that the TA needed to confirm and that they would do everything for me
