    That is a really good idea. I will have to do that myself!

          Just a word of advice for anyone booking at the Riu Palace Punta Cana...make sure you get all the price info before you book. We have booked our wedding there for May 8th 2009 and we are now looking at the finer details of the ceremony and reception. They want $5000 for the beach reception (they say it costs this much for setting it up) and they want $5/person for a cake to feed 50 people...which we are already suppose to be getting in our wedding package. So just make sure you ask all of your pricing questions before you go so you have proof of what they quoted you.

            $5000 for the beach reception is crazy!! That is great that you are looking at the finer details now vs. the week of your wedding!!

              wow 5000 thats nuts and thats a smart idea to get all these prices sorted out before getting there.

              as for me im back we had to put everything on hold there has been some family issues and i really hope they get resolved i dont want to plan a wedding last min, things have been crazy here lol so hopefully i can start planning soon.

                Hi,

                I just shot a wedding at the RIU Palace in Punta Cana and it rained. They were not well organized in dealing with this (even though it's not an altogether rare event). Also, the beach is fairly crowded with other guests. So, if you're hoping for great beach photos of your wedding, spend some time thinking through the logistics and try to get specific answers regarding a rain plan from the wedding coordinator before your date.

                  Can we see the photos that you took at the Riu Palace? Are they available on your website?

                    Sure. They're on the links page or you can just go to:
                    Matt and Susan

                    The couple got one of the suites and the spiral staircase on the balcony made for some good shots even with the rain.

                      So glad to see another person is getting married at the Riu Palace. I'm getting married there on May 8, 09. I've heard great reviews of the resort and very few complaints. I haven't started working with the wedding coordinator yet but will begin to within the next month or so. I'm wanting to have a private reception but am unsure whether to have it on the beach or in one of the restaurants. Does anyone have any info on the rules regarding a private reception? The Riu seems to be a beautiful place and I'm looking forward to making the arrangements for the wedding but just like enabella, I'm lacking information. So, if anyone can help let me know!
