I have a question - once you pick a week - as I am trying to with my travel agent - how do you get a date for the wedding - I am hoping to get married to my love - jam 2010 in the Riu Ocho Rios - but do you have to be there a few days before you can get married congrats to all you brides to be! yay! were getting married!!!!!!

If I could go back in time... I would just simply just contact the Riu myself through their web site. Go to "weddings" and put in your stay info. and just request the date you want! That easy(that's why I was soooo very mad at my TA).
The Riu will contact YOU directly by email whether you do it or the TA. They will give you a confirmation code to enter back on their site and presto: your date is confirmed!
Our wedding date in August 7, 2009 at RPTB. You have to be on their property for 2 full business days before your ceremony. So, your fly in date DOES NOT COUNT as a day(it's like a half of day they consider). Also, weekends don't count either.
My TA messed this up too, so we have to fly in on Tues. of that week instead of the Wed. that we had planned to, to have our ceremony on Friday.
Hope this helps!

Yeah, I know how you feel.....but he's right YOU need to just email the Riu directly. I was mad too, but it's your info and email that they have as a contact. Plus, I don't know if you're like me, but I rathered that I emailed them and cut out the 3party info that wasn't correct to start with.
Also, when I got my confirmation number finally, it says that the Riu holds the "date" for 30 days until someone confirms that they def. want that particular date/time. So, don't worry because there could be people that requested a certain date but will back out of it and not confirm it.
I would suggest just sending the WC there a direct email asking for the date/time that you want to start. Then ask what your options are from there.
Hope this helps you.
