Just wanted to know how you coaxed Juan for your pictures. My wedding was at the beginning of November and I have been waiting patiently not emailing him or bugging him about the pictures. I was sure that I would receive them within the 3 month timeframe after all his recent issues. Well I emailed yesterday just politely checking in and stating that he still has 1.5 weeks and he replied basically that he doesn't know when they will be done but he is close - which to me interprets that They will be late because I haven't even looked at them. I've been waiting for the pictures to print some and send out with my thank you cards and now I'm feeling guilty because I am waiting so long and people may think I'm ungrateful!

Hi Tammy,

 

And no I didn't ask Juan for one picture. I was expecting to receive them in the next 2 weeks so I thought I could wait. I will email and ask him for just one. I just didn't want to bother him because I can only imagine how many others email him everyday to check on their pictures and ask for teasers. I just thought after he didn't give Nicole a teaser that he wouldn't do that anymore....but you are right and I will ask him for just one. Poor guy must still be so so so busy!

I'm getting married in Oct 08 at the Riu Palace in Cabo, so we can compare notes!! I had a friend that got married at the Riu in Cancun and she said that the reception that is included is semi private. She said that they were basically off by themselves and didn't even notice anybody else around. She recommended that I not pay the additional $500. I'm still trying to figure out the reception details though. Does anyone know if they are still allowing bonfires?

For what I've read here, they're not allowing anymore Bonfires... But, for what I know, as long as the Hotel pays the fee of the bonfire and compromises to leave all nice and clean, the goverment authorizes them to do it.

 

And I gotta say, the bonfires I saw at RIU, from Sept 06 until Sept 07 were amazing, a huge pit were Your guests could sit and enjoy the fire.

I am getting married at the Gazebo, then I am having my cocktail hour in the English Garden. Our Reception will be in the ballroom. I am hiring Oxten.tv to come and decorate the ballroom. I like the idea of an outside wedding too, my fiance and I are still deciding.

Aimee,

 

Your reception was beautiful! To have food and beer/wine on the beach only cost $500? How was the food? Did your center pieces and pink sashes on the chairs cost extra?

Sorry maybe I didn't explain myself well. The cost of the private reception site was $500. The cost of food was separate - we had the choice of several menus starting at $35/plate. The center pieces & pink sashes were also an extra cost. I can't remember the price of the center piece but I think the sashes were $5/chair.

Aimee,

 

How was the wind on the beach during the reception? I've heard it can get pretty windy, making the beach a little uncomfortable. Did you notice the wind being a problem? Thanks again!

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now. 
    • I think that would be a great idea. I have tried it once and loved it.!
    • That's really sweet. I am sure she would love that.!!
