Do y'all know what info the resort is going to need to know about my guests so I can be sure to ask it on the response cards (I know they want to know where everyone is staying but is there anything else?)
Does anyone have an example of what their response cards said (should I ask airline?) Thanks!
give me your email address and i will send you the paperwork that i had to fill out.

Hey everyone.. Still pretty new to the forum and there is a LOT to look through here. We pretty much have it narrowed down to a Riu in Playa Del Carmen. Especially after seeing all the gorgeous pictures in this thread, we are leaning towards Riu Riveria Maya. The other one we are looking at is The Riu Palace Mexico. I have not seen much on the latter on this forum and haven't really seen any wedding pictures and I am taking this as a bad sign? Anyone knows any details that differ between the two? Any price difference or reasons you chose RRM over the Riu Palace Mexico? THanks :)

I just thought the RRM looked a lot nicer than the RPM. A big part of why I chose the Riu Palace Riviera Maya was because of the gazebo. I just absolutely fell in love with it!

shellk - We just had our best man hold the rings and when they asked for the rings he brought them up to us.

 

JNagan2011 -The 2 resorts are pretty much the same except the RPRM is bigger then the RPM, I am pretty sure thats the onlt difference. There is not a gazebo at the RPM either. I am not sure about the price difference.

 

Mrs. McKenna - We had our wristbands on for most of our pictures and we didn't even notice them in the photos but you can take it off and they will give you a new one at the front desk.

 

Sorry I haven't been here for a while. Happy New Years to all of you and i can't wait for all the 2011 brides to go to the RPRM and have an awesome time!!!

 

ShellK - Only a few weeks to go!!! Are you excited or what!?!?!

Thanks ladies! I know, i love the gazebo too, but part of me still wants to feel the sand under my toes as I say "I do"! Oh boy, so many decisions, but I am sure whatever we go with, we'll end up loving it... Two more questions, does anyone know how popular the resort is for weddings in December. We are thinking we will most likely be going Dec 15-25 of 2010, are we going to have troubles getting the day we want? Also, do we have to be booked in our room to reserve a date or can we go to that link through the Riu Wedding page and reserve a day but book later? Thanks all, everyone is so helpful on this forum; I might just be able to plan this wedding in less then a year wink.gif

JNagan,

 

My fiance and I actually stayed at the Riu Mexico last January. We were able to spend time at all the other resorts and we really like Riu RM b/c it was a younger crowd. It may have just been the week we were there. Also, Mexico is older, the Riu RM was only built about 3 years ago. The pool is a lot nicer at RM too. However, besides that they are pretty much the same. We ate at both places and food was the same and the staff was the same. We saw a room and that was the same too! The price between the two is about equal, when we got back we looked it up b/c we liked Riu RM better and it was about $12 more per day.

 

As far as booking, you go to the website and book the date. They will send you a confirmation number. Once they give you that number you will have 60 days to book your room. So we reserved our date in November and just booked last week.

RPRM vs RiuMexico: i heard the same things that were mentioned above- RPRM is newer, nicer, and not much more expensive. Add in the gazebo and it makes for an easy wedding decision!

 

Wristbands- hadn't even crossed my mind! What color are they? If they're white i don't mind if everyone leaves them on. I don't remember them from any photos!

 

Booking- we booked with Riu as soon as we knew our date, then emailed them saying we weren't ready to book the room yet... they gave us the okay and just said to get back to them when we had our reservation... so get in touch with them and don't worry about the 60 day limit!!

Ok, so I FINALLY have the internet!!! Now I can get back in touch with the world...and my wedding planning that is! :)

 

I keep forgetting that we have to wear those stupid wristbands the whole time we're there. I REALLY don't want to have to wear them in pictures if they're going to stick out...but thanks Lisa for letting us know that it wasn't that big of a deal.

 

KimmyG- Your invites sound awesome...I really like that idea! Did you take any pics?

 

Shelk- You leave SO soon...I'm getting so excited for you!

 

Now I'm off to bed...I have my BD photo's tomorrow and have to get up super early to get there. I'm also extremely nervous and I hope they come out good! I will let you know how it goes!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
