Hi Nic,

 

My name is Elissa and I am recently engaged!  I am so super excited!!  I am planning a RPRM wedding for April 2013.  I vacationed at this resort with 4 couples back in April 2010 & absolutely loved it!!!  I cannot wait to go back.

 

I have not set a date yet for I am waiting to confirm the Easter/School break for 2013.  My FI's son will be a sophomore in high school when we go & we will work around his school schedule.  The school will not guarantee the break will be the week after Easter until late March.  UUGGHH!

 

I have been reading through this thread tonight and was so touched by the friendships you all developed while planning your weddings!!!  How amazing!!!  

 

I had a question for you regarding civil ceremonies.  What day did you arrive and what day did you wed?  I know they require you be there 3 business days prior.  I am thinking I'd rather marry earlier in the week than later...maybe arrive on a Thursday and marry Tues or Wed?  Were they strict on this 3 day rule?

 

Thanks for any insight you can give.  Congrats to you!!!

 

Elissa

 

So many people from here were with me through one of the best times of my life, i think some of us are friends for life, been there through up and downs all the way, its fantastic :-)

 

We got there on the Sunday and were married the following Friday, and yes they are strict with the 3 day rule thing.... they dont include weekends in this, the wed would prob be the day for you to do it :-)

We are getting married in exactly two weeks and fly into Mexico on 4/15/12. The countdown is on and I am definitely freaking out. There's so much to do and not enough time. I can't wait to get to the RIU and I will definitely do a review when I get back. This website has definitely helped me and I planned to return the favor!

I wanted to share some tips and ideas for your wedding in this spectacular location:

 

1. Wedding Location: Gazebo is definitely the most popular ceremony spot because of it's privacy and green surroundings. You might want to add a dash of color to the set-up...think: rose petals or colorful tropical umbrellas, fans and flowers.

2. You are getting married in Mexico so do consider having a Mariachi Band. Your guests will enjoy it and I'm sure you will too!!!

3. Don't let anyone talk you out of having your ceremony start time be anything but 1.5 hours prior to sunset!! This will save your guests from mid-day heat and give you great light for your ceremony, and even better sunset light for your beach portraits!!

 

4. Since this hotel works with set seating times for dinner (thus reception). Make sure you plan a cocktail hour in between. There is an area on the beach full of palm trees in front of the Chilli's Restaurant....great spot for a cocktail hour and maybe even first dances!! An extra fee may apply for this, just check with your wedding coordinator.

5. If you have a small group (less than 30), ask for the Mezzanine Section at the Chilli's Restaurant. It's private and ocean side : ) Couldn't get any better.

Last but not least, remember your day will be spectacular simply because of the love you surround yourself with, regardless of the details!  Know that something in the plans may have a glitch - let's face it, what plans are ever flawless? Just plan enough to allow yourself to be stress free for your special day, but be flexible enough to let whatever happens, happen.

 

Good luck in the planning and happy to answer your questions ; )

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
