It was booked by someone but then they never answered the email that CONFIRMs your time. So the women in mexico emailed and put a call out to the bride and said if its not confirmed in 3 days they were going to release there time. Well they didnt comfirm and I was able to get the 2pm time. Better then 12 but not my 1st choice of 4pm. They then sent me a new confirmation #.


I emailed the main RIU office and they told me that if there are any cancellations, I can get a later time. Not that I want any brides to cancel their weddings, but I would be really excited to get it moved to later!

Bad news for me. I emailed RIU inquiring about my 8/8/08 date and it is truly all booked up!! I asked about a waiting list or filling a cancellation but she didnt acknowledge/mention it at all. I'm sad now. I spent all last night talking to my FI about the RIU, as I was truly sold on it. hissyfit.gif I thought I was doing myself a favor by trying to decide on a place at least 1 year in advance. Guess not.

 

Back to the drawing board! cry.gifcrybaby2.gif

well I'm sure 8/8/08 is a VERY popular date (just like this year's 7/7/07 brides) - you might have a tough time at a lot of resorts sad.gif

The rep from RIU finally got back with me. I am 1st on a waiting list for my 8-8-08 date! Now I just have to cross my fingers that someone cancels, lol. In the meantime, I'm trying to come up with a back up plan. Thanks for all your help girls :~)

You could always have your weding off site. There is a company mentioned in some of the other posts that will coordinate an off-site wedding/reception. they looked really nice. My travel agent is trying to convince us to go to the RIU in Negril, he really loves it. He said he saw an awesome wedding at some little hotel called the caves.

Great idea. I didn't even think about that option. I could always just have my guests stay at the Riu. That may just work :~) Thanks!

Thanks in advance!
Lizz - if you don't mind me asking, how much did you book it for? Cuz my wedding is the day after you and we would proabaly fly out of Philly to. My TA quoted me $670!!! I told her to forget it, I would wait. then I looked online and I saw ones for like $350-700 and I wasn't even sure if that was a good price, but KNEW that $670 wasn't.
