    Hi!

    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

      Hi im getting marriede at the ROR but not till feb 2010!! although i went to a wedding at ROR in Dec 07 which made us change our minds on a wet and windy UK wedding!!

      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!

            Hi, we are getting married at Riu ROR on the 23rd June 2009, we booked everything with thomson. I told thomson that I wanted to take my dress on board and they said as long as the box is to the size of the hand luggage I can take it on board.

                  hi it took Thomsons 2 weeks to confirm the date, they then forward to you the booklet which basically just states what the package includes. I found most info out from here ,I have booked Seagrape for reception, with Chandlyn. I also requested a time of 4pm for ceremony which was ok'd by chandlyn as Thomsons only give you a date and state time is agreed at resort, I wanted a time.

                    Hi All!

                    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

                    Hotels Jamaica - Riu Hotels & Resorts

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

                      Thanks for the info really helpful!
                      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!
