@@angie04 me too!! May 31 :)

When is your wedding? I just emailed with the wedding coordinator about the officiant. She told me that you don't meet with the minister before the wedding. The minister will typically talk with the groom 15 min prior to the wedding to see if there's anything special we want them to say. Does this seem right to you?

May 30th is my date!! I'm sure I will see you there! :) 

I was wondering about that too, but I haven't asked about it yet. That seems like a short amount of time to go over everything.

I have been having trouble getting a response back when I email and it is usually from different people.

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know the price to rent the Daquari Bar or if the drinks there are all included? Is this bar at a neighboring RIU resort and if so do they they have shuttles for guests?? 

 

So excited for all of you ladies with upcoming weddings!!

Liz - I have about 80 people going!

 

Things add up fast at the RIU so we are actually having a reception off-site.  It's a whole different set of things to worry about but for us it was the right choice.  I think for 45 people you could rent a room at Wickys in downtown playa and have a lot more freedom for things you want to do.

Is this where you are having your reception?

Hi Igann83,

 

If you are looking at a private cocktail hour at the Daiquiri Bar it will start at $30 USD per person (15 USD per open bar 2 hours and 15 USD Hors d'oeuvres or 20 USD per open bar 4 hours and 15 USD Hors d'oeuvres). It requires a min. of 30 guests and has a max. of 80 guests. The Daiquiri can be booked between 7:00pm - 11:00pm.

 

The Daiquiri bar is the pool bar, I believe. There are no shuttles between Riu resorts as far as I know.

@@liz24 I'm stressing out!  :o lol how about you? I had initially planned to do a legal ceremony in the state I live in, but last minute decided I wanted to do the legal ceremony in Mexico. Everything worked out fine, but the only issue I am having is my fiance took his mother's last name. Not his fathers. I don't know if this will be an problem? I emailed them today and I am hoping they will get back with me soon! I still have a lot of little details I need to figure out. 

Do you have all of your stuff done?

Hi brides!

 

We hope you don't have problems with those little details.

 

A few months ago we shared a Same Day Edit production of a hindu wedding,

 

now we want you to watch the Highlight of that hindu wedding,

 

It is really interesting to know more about this culture trough the traditions of the brides and grooms.

 

Hope you like it, Happy planning!

Hey Liz24, I have 26 confirmed guests going so we decided to go with the free package after some number crunching. We are going to bring in our own minister to officiate our wedding because 1) it is cheaper 2) It is more personal since the minister actually wants to know our story (via email and Skype). I just find the officiant provided by Riu is rather businesslike with no special touch to make the ceremony more magical.

FYI, I posted a lot of information I got from RPRM's reps so I posted them on my planning thread

Some information that brides are looking for may be already in one of my attachments. 

Note: Any pricing mentioned on the thread is for 2014. 

 

Hope this helps!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
