    Is there a way to look on the RIU website and see what is avaialble?

    Go to this site: Wedding Packages by Destination. Honeymoon Holidays. Weddings by Riu.
    Choose the destination, the package, ceremony option and hotel, then click "check availability". You'll be able to see what dates/times are available.

      I got a code from my TA and then I had to take that and go to the RIU site and put it in to get my REAL code from the RIU. However, noone informed me of this and when I found out I got scared b/c I hadn't done this I hadn't CONFIRMED my time. Thankfully my TA and Chandlyn got it all figured it out and my 4pm time was confirmed. I got an email from the RIU that had all the information that I needed.

              So, I'm new to this site, but not to the planning...we have a 1pm wedding at ROR. We have the disco booked from 3-5pm for our reception and dinner at mammee bay at 6:30. We are considering a drink bar and snacks on the beach for our guests w/steel drum band while we get our pics...before the 3pm reception.
              Anyone who is still looking for things to do between the early wedding and dinner, might want to consider the reception in between...that way your shnokered guests aren't leaving the reception early to sneak off for nappy time, because they've been drinking all day. Also that gives you ample time to spend with the new spouse should you be partied out too, or if you've paced yourself...have the last one's standing meet you at the bar after dinner.
              We just got back from Cabo in October and let me tell you: all-inclusive + 90 degree heat = early bed time (if you're not careful). You also don't want to forget that this is a vacation for your guests too...and if your wedding starts at 12pm and your reception doesn't start until 9pm...they are gonna be exhausted, but feel obligated to attend a late reception.
              Just a thought. Good luck to everyone! We have 6 more weeks! Its coming up so fast! Heather

                Well I spoke with Chandlyn and you can have them set up the Hors d'eourves during that time which is done buffet style. Our wedding is on the 10th of April at 11am. I was worried at first but then I realized that by the time the wedding is over and we take pictures and everyone gets acquainted the time will go by quickly....plus I dont think I would do the activities and get everyone all tired out for the reception. Maybe plan small things in and around the resort but nothing too physical or in the sun....Marlon

                  I emailed Chandlyn and asked about having a lunch reception after my 11am wedding and this was her response, I'm gonna go with this plan so that my guests will have the rest of the day to do whatever they want, then whoever wants to meet at the disco that night can meet back up with us to dance the night away.

                  "Hi Courtney

                  For the lunch arrangements can be made for 12 noon at the Mammee Bay restaurant. A section will be reserved and set up with white tablecloths, napkins, silverware and glassware. Please note however that the meal is buffet.

                      I just wanted to say thank you for all the great info in this thread! I originally had a noon ceromony time and after reading this thread I contacted my TA. She was able to reach the resort and I now have the 4PM wedding time! I am so excited! It really does pay to call and check to see if there is any additonal times open!
