    ok, so you had the set up on the beach right? Did the sand get into the plates? What do you think of the set up in the garden area do you have pics you could post? Thanks for your help!

      The beach reception was great. It's not everyday that you get married in Cabo and can dance under the stars right by the water. I didn't want to have my ceremony on the beach so the reception was a great alternative. Unless it's really windy (like tornado!) on the night of your wedding, you don't have to worry about the sand in your food.
      -where's the garden?
      -i'll post pictures tonight.

        You are so much help, thank you!!! the garden is a very private area with walls around the garden and a fountain in the middle...its open air so when you look up, you look at the sky. If i picked the garden ,im not sure i would want my dancing there so maybe if i picked the beach , they could arrange for a dance floor on the beach. Can't wait to see the pics!

          I was at the Riu Palace in December and I remember the bride asked for the private reception at the San Jose restaurant at the terrace and wanted a T set up for the tables and it cost her $500.

          It is buffer style for appetizers and deserts and you choose the main course from the menu. Only red/white wine and beer are included.

          The only thing the bride said to me that there was no need to do an upgrade for the cake ( the cake is for 10 people I believe and she had 25), since the restaurant has a buffet for desserts.

          I hope this info helps.

                    I've got nothing nice to say about them. Last time Adriana (their former-WC) went there, she was an OUTSIDE WC and still kicked her out... Same Adriana that save their asses like 1000 times...

                      I don't mean to hijeck this thread but I know I can find Aimee here. The pics you posted look amazing.

                      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!
