    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.
