I'm so late at responding to this but here you go! Our RSVP's are due by Oct. 1st and our wedding is Nov 28. We cut it close because we figured some people would be booking at the last minute anyway, so might as well not rush them....we also wanted people to have enough time to change their mind/save up after receiving the formal invite (which I just sent last week).

We're having a private reception at RIU and we're paying extra for the DJ so we can have dancing.......very excited about that!

Josie- are you giving the DJ a song list to play, and are you having a traditional first dance and father daughter? I remember reading somewhere that we could bring an ipod and bose system, or rent their equip- is that an option?

 

Also wondering- are most of yall bringing your own centerpieces and decorations for the dinner/reception?

Maybe check out these links as to what to do now. It seems like you will just have to have your documents from Mexico translated to English.

it says:
In order to have a legal wedding in Mexico, you'll need to be there 3 days before your wedding, have a blood test done and have at least 4 people to witness your wedding (usually not a problem) Also depending on your state law, you may be required to have your marriage license certified and translated into English. It sounds like a lot, but I did a legal wedding and IMO It was worth it.

A lot of people will get married either before or after their dw in their home town, it makes the legalities much more simple.

Paige - I have no idea how the DJ works, YET. I'm supposed to be contacted next month to start communicating with the DW Planner at the RIU and I'm so excited. I promise to fill you in on all the details.

I do know that I am definitely doing a traditional first dance and a father daughter dance. I'm HOPING I get to provide a song list too, and if I don't then I might consider the BOSE option.

From what I've read, you can bring your IPOD and use the speaker/sound system set up but you still have to pay the same price as the DJ ($1700) to use the "equipment". So I figured might as well just do the DJ.

I think from the sounds of it the DJ is outsourced and must be contracted to work with different resorts. I could be wrong on that but I think I remember reading it somewhere.

Will keep you posted as soon as I know more!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
