    Mrs. Martin,

    I would love to get your template for the welcome and info brochures... I am actually surprised that the day passes were $75. I thought the were $100 each, but that stinks that you couldn't get a deal since you brought so many vendors to the hotel... I think leaving the OOT bags with the receptionist is a good idea. Just curious, how much do you think I should tip them to do that?...That dessert sounds like a good idea.

    I started with Lizette too and as the wedding got closer, Pamela took over. So, I'm not sure if it will be the same for you, but hopefully you will get to stay with Lizette because she seems to reply promptly to her emails.

    I have the templates on my home computer, so I will be more than happy to send them to you when I get home. Yes, the passes are usually $100, but they give you $25 off when you get married there and purchase passes. So, it helped us especially since we bought so many. Regarding the tip I left for the receptionist, I gave her $7.00 (USD) because I think that's all I had at the time. I gave her 7 or 8 bags that needed to be handed to the guests, so a dollar a bag I guess was pretty good. The guests all got them without any problems and that's what I was most worried about.

      I do have one! But it is in my email as a PDF and I have no clue how to post that here... if you want to PM me your email, I will definately send it to you :) The prices are really reasonable. If you don't want to give me your email (i would totally understand) you can go to the Renova Spa website and email Paula. She is awesome answering any questions you might have to :)


      Thanks Mrs Martin! I just sent off another email asking Pamela if she had gotten my last few, so we will see I guess

        Regarding the prices at Renova Spa, I thought they were fairly priced too. I paid about $140 for my hair, mani, and pedi. The prices for your hair will vary on the style and the time needed to do your hair.

            I thought I would check in with the RIU brides and see how the planning has been coming along!

            Bakerisacat- Your wedding is just around the corner! Good luck, can't wait to see pics!

              OMG Mrs Martin - Congrats on the baby!

              I feel like my wedding is sooo far away, but the planning is underway. If only March can come sooner so that I can officially book my date. On the Riu website it says that they don't do weddings on Christmas or New Year's day, so I have my fingers crossed that Jan 2 will work for them (it's a Saturday). I think I'm going to have to email the people over there to make sure. I'm trying to figure out whether or not I should get a TA or not.

              Bakerisacat, I am sure you will have a wonderful wedding. Woohoo!

                wow great pics. We are looking at the Riu as well. We found a ton of pics on trip advisor, but I didn't like all the sandbags in the ocean. Can you see them in front of the hotel beach? How private are their wedding locations?

                  Hi fellow brides! Hope you all had wonderful holidays! Christmas seemed like an afterthought here, but we ended up having one of the best in years :)

                  I can't believe that I leave in little over a week and will be married in exactly 2!!!

                  I still can't get Pamela to answer anything by email, I wonder if something happened... eek! Since I made the comments about the same email over and over in November I've heard NOTHING! I'm calling on Monday to see whats up, I seriously wonder if she possibly hasn't gotten my emails, but then wouldn't she think to email me?! (LOL I would have called her MUCH earlier but I was sick all of the beginning of December and then was working crazy hours over the holidays... I work in retail...)

                  Either way, I've decided I will get the wedding I want, and good luck to anyone that stands in my way when we get there LOL

                  If I don't get a chance to pop in here before we leave, I promise there will be a full review soon after we are home and LOTS of pics!

                      Thanks! I'm so happy to be pregnant!! Your wedding will be here before you know it; it's going to fly by. Have you heard anything back from RIU as far as your date?

                      The wedding locations are not private at all. You can probably get away with having a private dinner depending on the number of guests you have at the wedding. For example, if the restaurant you choose has a maximum capacity of 40 and you have about 40 guests, then your dinner will be private. But as far as the ceremony locations go, they are in open spaces. The area is closed off only for your event however. It's not as if you are going to have random guests walking into your ceremony.

                      As far as the sandbags go, it probably just depends on the time you go/season. When I went last year, the tides were not high and I don't think I saw sandbags. This year, the tide was so close to the hotel, you couldn't even walk over to RIU Cancun next door. There were sandbags out that week to help control the water and sand.

                      Well, don't stress out about Pamela anymore, your wedding is here and everything will go the way you want it to. Please keep us posted when you get back and please make sure you put Pamela in her place J/K!!
