I am new to the site and considering the riu palace for a Jan 2014 wedding. I am wanting to know if anyone knows anything about beach receptions? Thanks.

25 people booked!! Waiting on the last 15 to book, told them they must be booked by Jan 15th!! 


I have decided to be very simple with our wedding. We are not doing bridesmaids or groomsmen because my future husband has 5 brothers and lots of best friends:). Also, we are trying to bring minimal things with us. We will be doing travel mugs for guests with lanyard/badge holder for room key to bring to the pool. Maracas at dinner, fans at the wedding and that is about it. We are doing the semi private dinner, no reception and I think we may try to go to one of the "clubs" after if everyone is still up for partying! After looking at pics and everything looks beautiful so I figured less decorations=less stress for me. (We are also having an at home reception). We would really love to have the cigar roller but that is a pretty steep price! We may just go buy some when we get there and have them on the tables during cocktail hour:). I think we will bring custom matchbooks, but I have read sometimes some airlines are picky about travel so I will look into that!!


Good luck to all and happy planning!! Dont stress yourself out:)))))

Hey Ladies,


Just a FYI ~


I was following up today on an email I sent to Nancy over 3 weeks ago with no response (that is normally not like Nancy, but I gave her some time in case she was busy.)  I received an email back today saying,


"I just want to inform you that for personal reasons Miss Nancy is not working with us but I will be taking care about your questions and comments."
