Any UK ROR Brides?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I'm getting married 8 April 009 (Hi Sarah!)

I also booked through the hotel for the wedding as Thomsons didn't have any dates I wanted (over Easter) but the hotel did. And I was restricted to the dates we could be out there as I work in a school.

I am planning on taking my dress on board as hand luggage.

Hi ladies!

 

Here is Chandlyn email

 

weddings.ori@riu.com

 

I would definately get in touch with her as soon as possible if yours wanting any sort of private area. Reserve it! You can always cancel anything you don't want. There can be a number of weddings in the same day so the popular reception areas are bound to be reserved quickly.

 

Chandlyn took about 5 days to get back to me.

 

Very excited for you Gemma! Looking forward to seeing the pics!

Hi Blurt,

 

Myself & my FH originally booked the Riu Tropical bay in Negril with 1st choice, however the service with the Weddings team was just appauling, for 1 they couldn't confirm our wedding date as the hotel was undergoing renovation & even the TA couldn't confirm the hotel would be open in time, and the hassle I had with our documents was another issue. We then thought sod it & rebooked the holiday with Thomson (who were still independent, they're in partnership with 1st choice now) however, we decided to go to the ROR instead (didn't want to go to RTB if it was still a holiday from hell resort) and I decided to contact Riu directly to book the wedding package myself, the ease of doing this was a major weight off my shoulders, I had my wedding date confirmed within a week, they then emailed me Chandlyn's contact details, and to be sure, I sent our wedding documents via UPS back in May, 9 months early!!

 

Being honest, I would advise anyone to go directly through the hotel to book a wedding package, and we even saved money on the cost of the package, as all travel operators add there own commission on top!!

 

Feel free to email me if you need any more info, be happy to help another bride to be

 

Sarah xx

Hi Claire, plans coming along ok, starting a new diet monday so am hoping to shift 2-3 stone this time, its the Cambridge diet, dunno if you have heard of it.

Anyway, the docs needed are; Full birth certs, showing both parents names, and photocopies of full passports, think you have to have at least 6 months left from date of return, also you have to get them certified by a solicitor, I brought mine & his in, took less than 10 mins & it cost something like £10. By the way, if you have changed your name, you have to produce a change of name deed (Statutory declaration) and again, this has to be certified by a solicitor. That's all you need, once you have all those done, courier them by UPS or someone to the hotel, for Chandlyn's attention. Thats it then just bring the original docs when you go. Talk soon xx

Hi everyone, I emailed Chandlyn on Saturday asking if we could get married at 3pm. She mailed back the same day and told us that time is booked and the only time left is 11am.

So if you want a late time get in touch now.

I am a bit disappointed that it's early but I think it might be better, that way I won't be able to panic for most of the day and we will be able to relax and enjoy the rest of the day. x

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
