    baj,
    it was just the letter that was in the wedding pack from thompsons.i am going to email riu palace riviera maya tomorrow with my list of questions.i know we are getting married at different hotels but i think we all have the same questions.don,t know how quick i will get a reply but i will let you know.

    i am getting the same from my h2b.normally i am a planning kind of person but i don,t get stressed and quite laid back.with this i really am bridezilla but in a good way.just want to know my details for the day.i know they deal with weddings every day and they are pro,s at it (this is why everything will be fine).but they need to realise how important it is to us and deal with each of us on a personal basis.

      hi shellk,

      Yes I know you are right and I guess it's just having the piece of mind of knowing that it is all sorted so I can get on with the rest of my planning. It's just very frustrating when you know that the B2b's booking direct are receiving their confirmation of their requested date and the time.

      Anyway hope to hear back from the WC in the next couple of days.

      Are you having alot of family and friend's going?

      We hope to have between 15 & 20 family and friends there, so quite a small group compared to some, they will be travelling from different airports and some are booking the week before we arrive.

        no there are only 4 of us.i freaked a little bit last week when i got the paperwork.i thought you only needed 2 witnesses but you need 4.my h2b calmed me down saying it don,t matter we let them provide 2 they just won,t be on photos.this will be ok i just dont want people i dont know on my photos.

        we do both have big families but this is they way we wanted it.cosy and romantic.

          oh, I also did not know you needed 4 witnesses.

          When we decided to plan the wedding it was just going o be the 2 of us, but then when we began telling people are plan's, some of them decided that they would like to be there. Majority will be from my h2b's family.

          My mum is unable to travel and my dad won't leave her which I fully understand and the cost is also a major factor for other family members and friends which I also understand. Not sure if we will have a reception when we get back yet so nothing planned as yet.

            baj,
            we have exactly the same problem.our families are not the richest and even tho we wud love them to be there it would cost us a fortune to pay for them.there are a few friends that have said they are going to book but i have left it with them.also i do feel that if our families can not be there i dont want anyone.but we will wait and see im not worrying about it.my h2b dont mind and just says more the merrier.the 2 that are coming with us are my best friend and husband.obviously i wanted her to be there but i mainly wanted my witnesses and someone to spend they day of the wedding with and get ready with.

            i am going to email the hotel later and try and put the dress photo onto here.the next thin i need to sort is getting the birth certificates and passports translated.have you thought about that yet?

                  hi, shellk,

                  Well I must say they both look beautiful dresses and I can see why you are undecided between the 2 of them.

                  We do not need to get our birth certificates translated to marry in Negril. But they need to be photo-copied & stamped by a solictor, along with with photo -copies of our passports and my h2b's decree absolute as this will be the 2nd time for him.

                  I had to get a copy of my birth certificate with my parents names on because I only had the small cetificate which did not include parents names. But I was able to order a copy of the long one over the phone and it only cost £8.00.

                  Let me know how you get on with your email to the WC, I am still awaiting to hear back from my email because Thomsons did not include the contact details in my pack and the email they sent was to the sister hotel in Negril, so the WC there emailed me to say that she had forwarded it onto the the Wc at the clubhotel Negril where we are getting married.

                      desser,
                      I am so sorry to hear that, so what happens now? do you have to fill in the forms again? I don't understand why they don't have them in the shop when people go in to book the wedding package. And it would alot better and less stressful if then actually went on the riu site and provisionally booked the date and time while you are there in the travel shop!

                      So have they not yet booked the date? and can't they do it without the forms

                      I spoke to the Wedding dept again to day as well, I was informed that they don't have a separate email address for the WC at the clubhouse or telephone number and that I would have to email one of the other WC in Negril for this information?

                      They also told me that they do not book there date or time on the riu site but email their Thomsons rep at the hotel and then she passes the request onto the WC who then allocates the time. I was also informed that if I do not have the requested time on the 4th and manage to change the date then I may have to pay a admin charge!

                      NO WAY, when I informed them in the shop that we were flexible with the days and it was the time that was most important to us and then wrote 3 days on the request forms that they sent out with the time.

                      Anyway still awaiting to hear from the WC, after the WC at the Trpical Bay said she would forward it on to the clubhouse and still don't have a contact tel: so will ask the B2B's past & present if they can give me the details.

                      I really hope you get sorted soon.
