Any UK ROR Brides?
Posted 16 November 2008 - 06:55 PM
Im getting married at the ROR 28th November 2009! I would love to hear from any other UK brides to be. I have booked my holiday package with Thomson, but booked my wedding directly through the Riu website. This was to ensure that I could get the wedding time I wanted which is 4pm.
I was wondering how you other brides are transporting your dress?
As I have not booked the Thomson wedding package I usure if I would beable to carry my dress on board

we are booking our wdding on Sat through thomsons Y did you not book your wedding package with them just for the time?? is it hard to get what you want through thomsons!
My cousin got extra luggage and put her dress on as an extra case in the hold?? i will probably do the same!
be good to hear back from you! not many other UK Brides??

Hi I'm getting married at the Riu OR on the 3rd April 09, like yourselves we have booked the holiday thru Thomson but booked the wedding package with the hotel direct.
As for bringing my dress on board I am going to see how big it is folded & I may buy a box from the Empty box company (The Empty Box Company)
If you need any more information, feel free to ask!

Its great to hear from other UK brides to be.
The reason I chose to book my wedding direct with the hotel, is because I was aware that Thomson can only have one wedding a day at the resort, and I needed a specific date and time, which you can do through the website
1) You also get a faster response through the hotels website.
2) There are alot more wedding packages on offer than through Thomson
3) You don't have to make a payment till you arrive at the hotel
Heres the link to the website, just click on weddings by Riu

Thanks for the ideas on how to carry the DRESS on the plane, im definately going to look into all options

nice to speak to UK brides to know how it all works!
can i ask another question sorry!! but this is really helping me!
do you know what days you can book the seagrape?? we want to get married on a friday or sat ??
also do thomsons give you Chandlyns contact details? and do you just confirm over email or do you have to pay for things before you go eg like reception dj bands etc ??
Gemma i bet your getting excited now not long! we have chosen Feb aswell cant wait to see your pictures and hear what the weather is going to be like!
