Don't count on ROR initiating contact with you. You need to contact them and ask very specific questions and be detailed in what you want. They won't offer any information you don't specifically ask for. For most things, you can find answers to your questions here on BDW and most things (except the disco, plantation on beach reception) are booked when you have your planning meeting at the resort. My recommendation is to arrange a time for your meeting before you leave for Jamaica. That way you know your schedule ahead of time. Hope that helps!

Other than travel stuff, she is also taking care of booking all my wedding related stuff through Chandlyn for me, she has her email and her phone number so we were able to reserve some reception things early because they were in direct contact.
My TA never charged me anything extra (although of course she's making money off of our group), however, for the nominal difference in price (at least I hope) of not going with a TA, I'm happy that I get to reserve before my 1-2 months prior (getting married April 09), and having someone else deal with any headaches before they get to me!
I'd definitely look at a TA if it's not too late. Just for a comparison at the very least.
I can give you my girl's name if you are interested.

i would suggest using TA Maureen (above)...she is a travel agent specializing in weddings at Riu Ochos Rios.
she has gotten married there herself and knows the wedding details and how to get in touch with the wedding coordinator.

But if it weren't for this forum - I would be clueless! Which I will say, sometimes ignorance IS bliss.... Because ultimately the most important thing is that we are married and details can really stress me out! Amazingly, I have actually started to relax a bit and enjoy planning this whole thing....
But now I'm worried that all these great ideas for the ceremony and reception will be booked! So I sent an email directly to Chandyln with specific questions and am now waiting for a replay with a slight fear that our wedding was never really booked or that it is double booked.... j/k.

Can anyone suggest a travel agent for the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton in Jamaica? Our guests are departing from Toronto and Montreal.
