Riu Palace Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen

Recommended Posts

I wasn't planning on doing any sort of welcome bags until I joined this forum about 2 weeks ago! After seeing all the great ideas I decided to do it. So I ordered some canvas bags from cheaptotes.com (they were only like .99 and I was extremely pleased with them when I recieved them!). I am going to buy iron-on paper and I have designed what I am going to put on the bags. I also ordered travel mugs from oriental trading that you can personalize yourself. From what I have heard, the resort gives you your drinks in really small glasses so I figured that them having mugs with lids and their names on them would be helpful. I also ordered some really cute frisbees that say "love is in the air" from bridesvillage.com. Along with all of that I plan on buying other things to put in the bags like sunscreen, different travel toiletries, travel medicines, playing cards and anything else I can find to put in them. Oh! I also made my own luggage tags that I ordered from Oriental Trading too and sent them this week along with a little newsletter updating them on a few things. I've gotten really busy the last couple weeks =-)

I think we'll just go to one of the lounges or bars at one of the Riu's and have a cocktail hour or three. But I will definitly let you know how things go and different ideas on what you can do after dinner!
We are going to try to put together a "sunset cruise" for our guests...rent some sort of large boat, and have a combo boat cruise/cocktail hour. We purposely scheduled our wedding for early afternoon just so we could fit this in before dinner. I had a friend do it (she was married at the RIU Palace Mexico) and they said it was a huge hit with the guests.

We are doing gift bags, because I want the guests to know how much I appreciate them making the trip down to Mexico to share our wedding day with us. What I put in them will totally be decided by budget...what I can find good deals on will be what I get. So far I bought the little Spanish for Dummies books from the dollar baskets at Target (SUPER GOOD DEAL!). We will also order personalized playing cards, either can koozies or some sort of cup/water bottle, and that is all I have decided on...lots of girls on here have super good ideas for what to get and where to find the best deals. I'm not sure I'm going to get canvas bags or not yet, I guess I'm going to wait to see how many guests we have coming before I do too much.

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
