Recommended Posts

hi baj...

 

we have been waiting about 3 weeks now, went in to thomsons today actually and the hotel confirmed they had recieved the forms but still heard nothing re date and time!!?? we were told when we booked our group booking back in Nov that it would all be confirmed end of March early April so getting frustrated now!!! just worried that people who booked wedding online are getting first priority and we will not get what we want!!

Hi desser,

 

yes, I feel exactly the same and it does appear that it is only taking a couple of days for those booking direct with the hotel to have their requested dates and time confirmed. The only reason I did not do it that way is because we felt safer doing it via the TA. Oh well fingers crossed we both hear this week.

the reason we booked through TA was because they said if you book it yourself then you have to sort all your paper work out and when you get there there is more to sort but through them they sort it all for you?? prob a load of rubbish just to get their bonus!!!

 

anyway never mind like you say fingers crossed and hopefully we all get what we want : )

desser+baj,

when did you book your weddings with thompson?we booked the last weekend in feb and i got my wedding pack saturday.

 

they did say once that riu received the booking confirmation form that you had to fill in and send back it takes them 14 days to confirm your date with thompsons weddings dept.they will then send your pack to your thompsons shop (bout 2-3 days).

 

i know how you feel i was exactly the same but everything will be fine.it did,nt feel real to me until i had the wedding date confirmed.it was a big anti climax too cause when i went to collect my pack i was expecting a real thick folder but all you get is a letter confirming your date and a list of email addresses for the different hotels.and a small list of extras that you can order.

 

i am now making a biiiggg list of questions that i keep thinking of to email to the wc @ riu hotel.

 

keep positive you really are getting married fingers crossed you get it soon.xx

Hi desser & shellk,

 

We booked in March and my H2B took the forms back to the Thomsons Travel Agent's last Tuesday or Wed, however I asked him to phone the Wedding dept this morning, which he did.

Good News I think, they told him that our wedding pack with confirmation of the date and time of the Wedding was posted out to us yesterday. We did not receive any post today so I hope to receive it tomorrow, however being a typical man, he did not think to check if we do have the date and time that we have requested.

"Oh I do hope so!"

Will be sure to update you tomorrow.

Hi desser & shellk,

 

Well, first the good news the confirmation pack was sent to Thomsons for us to pick up tomorrow and the Wedding date is confirmed for 4th March but the bad news is no confirmation of the time which was my only priority when we booked the wedding. Thomsons are phoning the Wedding department to try and find out why there is no confirmation of the time. Because when I phoned to check with them I was informed that I would find out until we arrived at the hotel.

 

Very upset & angry when I known that this is not the case.

 

I have emailed Dionne WC a really nice email to ask for confimation of the time myself, but the one thing I don't want is a early Wedding. I am feeling so fustrated now.

 

Will keep you updated but I guess it is another waiting game now to hear back from Dionne.

 

Desser have you tried phoning the Wedding dept direct?

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
