I booked my wedding date through Riu online. I received confirmation within two days and am happy that my wedding is confirmed for March 30, 2010 at 4pm. I didn't get any forms or packets in the mail. It must be something your travel agency does.

I booked our wedding itself directly thru RIU on the website. It was easy. I picked the date and the time, requested the location for the ceremony-picked out the wedding package and sent it off! Laster.//maybe 5 days later, my travel agent received a confirmation # via email, saying everything was booked--but the booking needed to THEN be confirmed with our booking reference with the resort......at this point- we hadnt booked the resort--I sent out our std's, and we started the group booking right away--we have 25 people booked now with deposits for May 2010---went back online and entered in our confirmation # that RIU weddings gave us--plus our booking reference we got from sunquest--and voila! Wedding confirmed!

 

It was a bit of a waiting game for sure....and I felt better once I had done it all!

Yes, can book direct with riu, but decided just to book everything with the travel agent, however still awaiting confirmation of the date and time which we have requested. Hope to hear this week but thinking that it may have been quicker to do this direct with riu. Fingers crossed that I receive confimation this week.

 

Desser, how long have you been waiting for your confirmation after senting your forms back to Thomson?

I forgot to mention--once we initially booked our wedding online on riu website---we were told we had 120 days to confirm with our booking reference from the tour operator or resort itself.....so that gave us 120 days to get the group booking going......we need 10 people to start it.

Hi shellk,

well I have not planned very much yet apart from booking the holiday & wedding package, although we have got the wedding rings.

I think once I know the wedding date and time have been confirmed I will start looking for the dress.

Also waiting for the date to be confirmed so that family and friends can start booking because some are thinking of going the week before we arrive. You are right the hardest bit is the waiting, but well excited.
