I will be gettinb married at the "old" RIU - only becuase the new one doesn't open until Winter 2007. My understanding is that the new one with be a "Hotel" class, and the old one is the "Palace" - meaning from what I can tell - if you stay at the Palace, you can use the ammendities at the Hotel, but not the other way around....

Hi Toby!
I had the exact same problem and I totally understand your frustration. You should try calling them? Do you have their number? Let me know if you need it and I will look for it.

Do you have a specific date in mind? When I reserved my wedding for October, 2007 I don't think there were dates available for the weekends. I didn't want a weekend so I was ok with that.

Let me know if I can help.

Aimee.

thanks for the help - i called the number that was listed earlier on the site but they asked me to call back in half an hour - I will try again then. I just want to secure a date, my photographer and order my dress...lol...those are the pressing things that have to be done apparently now - keep reading other girls posts who are so far ahead of the game than me and it makes me panic-y...lol...

I don't have much planned as well. I have my date reserved, my reception place reserved and that's it! Wait, I lied. I also have my dress!

 

The next thing on my list is to find a photographer but I can't seem to find one. I would like to use Juan but I don't think he fits into my budget and I'm sure he's already booked.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have been trying to get information out of the Riu for almost a month now. Do you have the 2007 price guide that you could send me? I am looking at an October wedding. How much is it for a ceremony/cocktail hour and reception? I am trying to decide between the Riu and Dreams and I am leaning toward Dreams because the Riu is not sending me what I need. They keep referring me to the website which does not give me prices. I finally received pictures from them of ceremy and reception setups but no prices. Also did they allow you to block rooms for your guests and if so how much was it to reserve the rooms and what was the group rate that was given to you? Help if you can:) Lisa

smile159.gif In case you all didnt know, I am a total control freak and am desperate for any and all info - I have been contacting girls on tripadvisor etc who have been married at Riu Cabo for their info etc - here is one response I just received.

 

All in all, I thought the RIU was great for the money I paid. Veronica (the wedding coordinator) was a little flighty and hard to contact (even while staying there), but she got the job done and my wedding turned out great. We did have our reception at the Mexican Restaurant (I really liked the food there). The only thing I didn't like about it was the way the restaurant is situated. The area that you sit in is long and somewhat narrow, so it was like we were sitting at one long table and not able to socialize well with everyone. Plus, the dance floor is at one end and around the corner so when we did our first dance, people had to get up and walk over to see it. Oh - and it was sweltering hot and Veronica was no where to be found and we couldn't get them to raise the sun shade to let a breeze in. Honestly though, I don't think you could have the reception at any other restaurant there because all the other restaurants are small. The actual ceremony was perfect - except for the fact that my mariachi's were 20 minutes late. But..... I'm married and had the most amazing time. We loved staying at the RIU. It was perfect for us and all of our crazy guests b/c it's all inclusive so we were able to eat & drink whatever and whenever we wanted. Plus, they have a swim up bar which is pretty much where we all (60 of us) migrated. :)

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
