Hi Ana! My best guesses afte having just gottenarried at RPM in June is that you coul probably get away with paying for a day pass for your photographer if you want them to come to the resort to take pictures before your ceremony. With regards to the rehearsal dinner I would imagine that it woul depend on how many guests you had and that you'd only be allowed to chose from the Guacamole Restaurant (open air steakhouse where the lunch buffet is also situated) or at La Bodega (the Mexican restaurant) Let me know if you have any questions or want to see some pictures from when we were there. We brought out photog as a guest from home and she did an amazing job!

I would love to see some of your pictures.  Like Ana - I'm haveing ceremony and reception off-site but interested in some on-site events at the hotel.  Has anyone done a Welcome cocktail party there?  How much did that cost? 

 

Would the resort allow something like a welcome beach bonfire?

Your survival kits are awesome! Where did you order the personalized chapstick or did you make the labels?

Hi everyone!  I just booked my wedding for Dec 6, 2014 and RPRM!!  It is sooooo far away but the groom and I are both finishing up grad school and don't want to be busy with wedding planning on top of that!  This site has been a blessing!!  I feel like I already have been to the resort with all of the photos and comments! 

 

I still have a couple of questions though. 

1. Regarding the beach ceremony, they all seem to be in front of a fence with the beach lounges behind them.  Is there any way to be closer to the beach to reduce the amount of onlookers in your photos?  I have always dreamed of having my feet in the sand the day of my wedding (hence why I am reluctant to do the more private gazebo), but some of the pictures I have seen disturb me with the chairs everywhere! 

 

2. Has anyone done the "free" package on the beach? I am wondering what type of decor that this package offers.  We crunched the numbers and realized paying the additional fee per person was still cheaper than upgrading to the Royal package.  I may be swayed to upgrade though if the decor is also upgraded. 

 

3.  We are not doing a private reception so we are going to need to find something to do after dinner.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  We are not going to want to go watch a show or anything, we will be in full out party mode!  Has any bride ever walked to the RIU Tequila's disco with their wedding party to continue the evening? 

 

I am sure I will have many more questions as things progress!  Thanks to all of the former brides and brides to be for their help!  I do not know what I would be doing if it wasn't for this site!!   THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!!

From what I've heard Riu Palace Riviera Maya does not offer the free package but Riu Palace Mexico does.

Hi JenniferM,

 

That is what I had assumed as well from this site, but I emailed the RPRM and their sales executive sent me information that claims it does.  Oddly it claims that the free package is now only available at the RPRM versus the RPM.

 

After getting this info, we confirmed the free package at the RPRM and it is set in stone for 12-06-14!
 

Maybe they have changed things for 2014...

Congratulations on setting the date Igann83!

 

Thanks for the info, RPRM is one of my top picks and I was disappointed that they didn't offer that package. I wonder if they're changing anything else for 2014.

That's great - and definitely different from what is said on their website.

 

How much is the extra cost per person for private dinner when you use the free package?  Do you get to choose any restaurant at the Riviera Maya resort?

I do not know the extra costs associated with doing a private dinner because we are just opting for the semi-private dinner that is included.  For guests over the 10 included in the free package, it is $25.00PP.  This additional cost covers the ceremony chairs, champs and cake, and dinner reservation.  It is just like the other packages at the RPRM, you have to chose from Chiles or Botofogo.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
