Riu pics

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I'm looking for advice. I am getting married Oct 08 at the Riu Palace in Cabo and I am trying to decided where to have the rehearsal dinner and reception. What have people done and enjoyed in the past? Do most people have a private rehearsal dinner and reception? Does anyone have any experience not doing a private rehearsal dinner and reception? Are there any pics of Riu weddings? I've searched and found a couple, but not a ton. Any advice or pics would be fantastic!! Thanks so much!!

Hey! I'm getting married april 30th.

I was planning my reception at Sunset Mona Lisa but have now decided on doing it at the hotel....If you can wait until then i will take pics for you. We are getting married at the gazebo over looking the ocean and i think we will have our dinner on the mexican terrace. We have a small guest list so it's easy. We are not planning on doing it private...I will let you know if i regret that or not. Not sure if you are getting a cake out side of the hotel?? I'am using Jennifer Hatton Of CAbo dessert diva. & for flowers i'am using Cabo flowers both are awesome to deal with!.

That would be AWESOME!!! I would really appreciate any pics you can send! I thought that the Riu kind of forced you to use their onsite vendors for flowers, cakes, etc?!?!? I'll definitely look into Jennifer Hatton though. I had a friend get married at the Riu in Cancun and she said that the cake was the worst she had ever had!! Thanks for all your help!! Are you getting nervous? April 30th is just around the corner!! How exciting!!

Hi ccwinn,

 

I shot the wedding at the Riu Palace in December 2007.

 

Here are some pictures:

Wedding in Los Cabos

 

When we arrived bride and groom invited everyone to "Welcome Dinner" at the Grill steak house restaurant.

 

For the wedding reception they used Mexican restaurant - San Jose.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Indecisive Bride to be,

I will be at the Riu Palace from April 26-30, 2008 shooting the wedding on April 28th.
If you need a photographer - I can stay one extra day for you and photograph your wedding too.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
