    Becky, thats a great question. You should definitely ask Chandlyn for confirmation.

      I will once I finally confirm my wedding date. Sadly they keep rejecting my 2009 wedding request citing they don't have the ministers scheduled yet. Originally they told me they would open availability in Feb... then it was March... now they are telling me April. Argh.... I just want to know for sure so I can start making things up with the correct date! I noticed that they just put up 2009 rates on their wedding site... so maybe thats a good sign. I will just keep having my TA submit our request weekly until they finally let me book.

        Good luck with that! Like you said it has to be a good sign now that the 2009 rates are up. Have you tried to contact the Wedding Sales Coordinator Carolina?

          No ... I am "trying" to be patient with everything. I'm hoping that since I can't request mine, no one else should be able to either, so it will turn out okay. I am going for a Monday... which I can't imagine would be the most popular option anyways. However, the being patient thing was when they told us we would get confirmation in Febuary/March... not March/April.

          Do you think it would be helpful to call? Or should I just keep waiting it out? I know it must be a ton of logistics on there part... but as my plans are for the first week in January that is less than 11 months away now! Plus I was really hoping to get alot of the DIY and other projects done by May-ish before I start rotations (and while my MOH aka scrapbook queen is in town to help me!). lol ... but basically I just want to know! :)

              Why don't you contact Carolina. She's at the main office & may be able to help you. When I had a problem with my date, I contacted her & she was able to get me the date that I wanted, which initially wasn't available.
              Here's her info:
              Carolina Miranda
              Sales Wedding Coordinator
              Ocho Rios & Negril, Jamaica

              Phone: + (52) 984 877 23 20
              Email: weddings05@riu.com

              She's very good about responding to emails so maybe try emailing her first with your concern. If she doesn't respond then try calling. Hope this helps.

                  I can't believe everyone has had so many problems. When I went to the bank I had photocopies and I had the actual birthcertificates and passports and the lady notarized the copies and then had me sign them. Quick and easy!

                  I am a little concerned though about the address I sent them too b/c the "faqs" page on the RIU site says PO Box, but there is no number so that's how I addressed the envelop. Then last night I was looking thru the PDF file from the site and the address had a PO Box number! I did send it registered mail, but I don't want it to get returned 2 or 3 weeks from now. GRRRRR

                    Hi
                    I originally sent my copies to the address with the PObox--- and Chandlyn got them ok so you should be fine. I kinda wondered though too

                      We emailed chandlyn and asked if it was ok to scan the notarized documents and email them to her. She was ok with this. We are going to bring the actual notarized copies with us to give to her if she needs them.

                      Good luck everyone
