    We actually booked through Liberty Travel. They have a group travel department that will work with larger groups to get your better prices/discounts.

      you can try to read the thread on the site about destinationweddings.com, but the concensous I got from reading the thread is don't. I already knew where I wanted to get married so I picked a local travel agent. She is going to book everyone based on there own travel dates. I think it works the best.

        Hi Lauren- We booked our travel through a travel agent at Liberty Travel (I can give you her contact info; she is fabulous) and included her contact info on my STD and wedding website. Some guests booked thru her, others found better deals online (like Travelocity), and others have their own TAs they booked with. I suggest booking your travel through an agent and giving your guests the agents contact info and then let them worry about booking. There is nothing to stress about!:)

              Our invitations are FINALLY in the mail!! What a project... we did Message-in-a-bottle invites by buying the materials online and assembling them ourselves (with lots of help), and it's nice to have them shipped off :)
              We're doing electronic RSVP (on our wedding website) with a deadline of Jan 29, I hope people actually do it. That'll put us right at the 2 month mark to know our guest count when Riu wedding coordinators come knocking!
              FI ordered his suit last night from Studio Suits.com, I'm keeping my fingers crossed we took his measurements right!
              Happy New Year everyone!

                Hi girls- it took me a week but I've finally read through all the messages! I got engaged on December 12th and am planning on having my wedding at the Riu Palace RM on March 27th at 4:00 (the confirmation is supposed to be here on Monday). So yes- I've got 85 days left and am just starting the planning process. I appreciate all the info I've received from all of you!

                So this is a really random question but I haven't seen it answered anywhere... when we get married do you know if my FH and I (along with the wedding party and parents) will have to wear the all-inclusive wristbands? I've seen a few wristbands in pics but would really prefer not to have them on...

                Also does anyone have the price list and menu that they could send to me personal email? I'm getting anxious and know from everyone else's experience that I won't get a response from the RIU until 2 months before the wedding :)

                Thank you!

                Jessica

                  hi,
                  regarding the wristbands i think some guests ask for them to be put on loosley so they can get them off and back on.for the bride and groom i understand that they will let you take them off and give you replacement band.that was one of the first things i though about lol.i dont like the thought of having it on on my wedding day.it wont match my jewellry lol.

                  if you give me your email address i will send you the info ael sent me.

                    kimmy,well done for getting your invites out.you just reminded we still have a couple ahr invites left for people that we were going to hand deliver over xmas.

                    angel,yes im getting really excited now.its weird cause the nerves seem to be disappearing slowly.we have worked it out today we have 25 more work get ups.i think i can cope with that.

                    well ladies not a good start to the year for me.have been poorly with a cold which is much better today.yesterday i crashed my car into the kerb cause i skidded on some ice.it is broken and cant get a courtesy car until tomorrow.back to work tomorrow but like i say its a good feeling knowing you have an holiday/wedding coming up so soon.

                    lisa/josie,where are you?can you let me know about the ring thing.do i need a pillow or does our witness just hand the rings over?

                      Hey girls- I know I have been MIA forever but I have been soo busy with work- I am now gonna kick into wedding planning mode!
                      Do y'all know what info the resort is going to need to know about my guests so I can be sure to ask it on the response cards (I know they want to know where everyone is staying but is there anything else?)
                      Does anyone have an example of what their response cards said (should I ask airline?) Thanks!
