Good to know ladies, thanks for all the info. KEEP IT COMMING! hee hee

I must say, that with every day that passes I get happier and more satisfied that we booked the wedding with the Riu Jalisco. I just cross my fingers that it won't rain. I'm sure it'll turn out and it will be an unforgettable day no matter how it turns out.

    Got some photos from the WC, Andrea, at the Riu Jalisco. We are renting the "Bar Bahia" after our dinner for the dance.

    Anyone have any ideas on how I could decorate this place?? it looks pretty bland to me!! LOL

      Hey Melissa,

      Ive seen it in person and you would just need a few touches to dress it up. What about draping fabrics from the window openings to create a flowy/breezy effect. Also draping the fabric around the railings would be a nice touch. Maybe just placing candles everywhere too. I thinks that would be really romantic.

      That's a greta idea... but how would I know how much fabric to buy? By the looks of that picture the openings are humongous. Oh no what can I do? I REALLY like that idea!!!

        Hey there Caletas bridetobe-

        I am getting married at RIU Vallarta later this month and so far haven't seen anyone's pics from there; I've only seen pics from Jalisco. How was your stay? Do you have any pics to share? I'm very nervous about the wedding, as I haven't been able to see anything in person. I had been working with Andrea for months and then she sent me an e-mail and informed me that she was leaving. I thought I was going to faint! We will have over 60 guests and I'm just curious to find out how everything went for you durnig yuor stay.

        Thanks,

          You will love the Vallarta. The staff was great and there is plenty to do. The hotel is stunning and there are plenty of restaurants and activities even with your large group. One suggestion though…make ala carte reservations early!! Other than that no complaints. Oh if you can get an ocean view room do it!!! You can watch the dolphins swim by in the morning.

          For the wedding…I would suggest following up regularly, even if it means calling the hotel and speaking to someone. I will tell you that I had a bit of a mix up when looking at the RIU Vallarta for our wedding. They booked for the wrong year and it was very hard to communicate to get things straight.

          I did see a beautiful beach wedding while we were there. They had a large group and there was a white garden arch with a bit of fabric and flowers. The chairs were covered in white and had colored bows on them. They also had some small floral arrangements. It was really pretty but a bit plain for my taste. You can always add a bit more fabric, flowers, and maybe torches. But I don’t really know what you are looking for. The couple was married later in the day and I would suggest that due to the beach traffic and the beautiful sunsets. They are breathtaking!!!!!

          If you haven’t made your dinner reservation yet I would suggest the Brazilian/Steak restaurant. It is private, open, and on the beach. It is great for a beach wedding and for large groups. The couple that way married there had a reception up there as well.

          Try not to worry about things though I know its hard to leave it all up to someone else. It will all turn out great. When you get to the resort take care of business right away. This way you can take care of all of the details and you can relax and enjoy the resort. If you need anything else let me know.
