    Hi Girls!

    I'm getting very excited now my wedding's less than 3 months away! This weekend we ordered our rings, got his shoes (which was a complete drama!!) and ordered the favours. So happy we've got loads done and we are nearly all ready for Mexico.... but now what??

    I've not yet heard from my WC who is based at the hotel - Riu Tequila.
    It seems all the 'big' stuff like location, meal, flowers, cake etc is still left to sort out now and whilst I've enjoyed not having too much to organise - and been bragging about how easy a DW is, now I'm starting to panic slightly!
    I knew this would happen as I can be a bit of a control freak and I'm trying to squash this feeling of panic growing inside of me!

    When do you start hearing from your wc - I've been told 6 weeks.... but that seems a really short period of time to organise these things, I know they are pro's at this and that will probably be plenty of time.....

    Just look for a bit of reassurance from you guys - Please tell me all will be fine..... LOL!!!

      You are panic it is obvious. Do not worry all arrangements will be done and you will surely enjoy your wedding.
      Paradise is always where love dwells.

        don't know if it might be different at your resort, but i've heard from all of the dreams resorts brides and most of them finalize all those details when they get there! it's like an hour long meeting with your WC and you're done :)

        i am also a bit of a control freak and at first i got really nervous cause i wasn't hearing from my WC, but i've just let it go now since i know that they do this day in and day out and i'll just finalize everything during our meeting. the only thing that i made sure i had in writing was out date (of course,lol), the time of our wedding, and specific locations for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception (ie gazebo, beach, terrace, etc).

          I certainly think it makes a difference on the resort. I know that I just put down the deposit for our resort last week, and I have heard from the WC almost regularly for the last two weeks. I know another girl (I met on here), who is working with the same WC I am at the resort and she's been working on flowers and such. Neither of us get married until March (her) or April (me) next year.

          You could always contact the WC and see if there is anything you should be doing or if that is taken care of when you get there. That will at least give you some comfort!
          Married the love of my life in April!!

            If your wc has not contacted you, why do you contact her/him? This will give you some comfort.

              I think communication from the WC really depends on the resort. I don't really know much about brides' experiences with Riu Resorts or Riu Tequila.
              I was very fortunate to have an excellent WC, who was prompt in answering all my e-mails and worked to accommodate our requests. The only things I had arranged/confirmed ahead of time were the date/time of the ceremony, reception, and dance, the locations of the ceremony and reception, and hiring of the DJ for the dance. We met with the WC the day after we arrived to decide on menu for the reception, the cake, final number of guests, flowers, additional decorations, and transportation to the ceremony.
              If you have any special requests that would not normally come with a wedding package at your resort, I would try to get ahold of the WC ahead of time to double-check your requests can be met.

                Thanks for your advice everyone! Carolina 24 - I'm glad I'm not the only one!!

                I've contacted my WC and they've emailed back saying that they will contact me between 8-4 weeks before and see what extras I want and confirm the time (I already have the date confirmed!). Then we will arrange everything else when we get there!!
                Phew.... panic is starting to fade!

                Thanks again!
