I sent a picture of what I wanted to Adrianna (co-ordinator) and she said she would get them for me. They weren't exactly what I asked for, but I still liked them. There was also an additional charge for the centerpieces, sorry, i don't remember the cost. If you need to know, let me know and I'll dig through my stuff for you.

Wind? What wind? The day and night was absolutely gorgeous. I didn't even consider a possible wind problem when I chose a beach reception. My wedding was at the end of hurricane season and I had no problems at all.

This might be a silly question - but are there any free wedding packages at the Riu Palace Cabo?? I can't seem to see one on the site. I like the idea of going with a free package and customizing.

 

Also, any leads and rates on a great photographer??

 

Thanks ladies!

Nadia,

 

They don't have a free wedding package. Their least expensive one is their Classic package:

 

 

The Classic Wedding Package 2008 includes:

 

* On-site wedding coordinator to help plan the event

* Classic Decoration set up for the ceremony location for 10 people

* CD or recorded music during the wedding ceremony

* Reception dinner for the wedding group at one of our specialty restaurants

* Wedding cake up to 10 people

* Surprise spa gift

* Ten percent discount on all spa services for the bride and the groom (restrictions apply)

* Minister/Judge service & wedding certificate are included

* Witnesses if required

 

The Classic Wedding Package applies only to parties of 10 wedding guests or less.

 

In order to have a wedding at our RIU Hotels & Resorts, the couple and the 80 percent of the total amount of the wedding guests must stay at the hotel where the wedding will be performed. This is a strict Riu policy we must follow.

 

**Please be aware that before booking your wedding you must read our Frequent Questions.

 

This package is valid from January 1st 2008 – December 31st, 2008

 

Mexico - Los Cabos

Hotel Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas

Cabo was once a calm town of fishermen and a meeting point for pirates. In the coasts of the Pacific and the Cortez Sea there are countless coves and miles of deserted beaches. In the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas you will discover a full range of facilities and services to guarantee that your wedding will be a memorable occasion.

Religious Wedding 770,00USD |

Civil Wedding 950,00USD |

Renewal of Vows/Symbolic 770,00USD |

Thanks for your reply!

 

We already have more then ten guests, but I'd much rather customize the classic package then take the royal - is this a possibility??

 

Another question - is the San Jose Terrace available for a semi-private reception? I am not so thrilled about all these hidden charges at the Riu! I'm scared they'll charge me $500 to take an extra breath on that resort LOL.

From what I've been told, the number of guests you have determines the package you have to get. I was considering customizing also, but I was told that I had to get the caprice pkg based on the number of people. Does anyone have any idea of how many guests a gazebo ceremony can accommodate??

I've read in other threads and just from other brides who have gotten married in Mexico at various resorts that if you have a large group the hotel "recommends" the you have a private event because the get paid extra for it but if you have 40 and the San Jose Terrace can only accommodate 40 people than you obviously have the entire area regardless if you choose a semi private event. I was told to just do semi private because most people vacationing don't want to be seated near a rowdy reception and in most cases you might have a few on lookers but your event is mostly private regardless if you pay for it or not. I think it just depends on the size of your group. The larger your group, the easier it is to get away with that.
