So they will let me have a private reception 2nd sitting at Bota Fogo BUT they have indicated the DJ is mandatory. As result it's going to cost - $1700 USD. Did they indicate the same to either of you? This is hugely frustrating as I was planning on bringing my Ipod for the music.

 

Ceremony location -we picked the beach...I realize it's not private but I have my heart set on getting married on the beach.

Hey all-

 

1st to MrsV we are getting married at the gazebo at 4pm on the 5th you are welcome to join us if you want. We will be at the resort welcoming guests or at the pool bar on the 4th. When you arrive leave me a message at the desk or have them call my room. It is cool that we will be there the same time. My friends are tons of fun so you are welcome to join our dinner as well, I'll private send you my email and if you want to be on the guest list let me know.

 

2nd yes to the last post on the DJ and private dinner go together for $1700. I decided to go semi-private as we are going to have 55 guests and I really dont think it is worth the extra money for a private event when the dinner is the same and included. Our group will take over the main part of the restaurant and that is fine with me. We are going to have the semi-private set up at the lobby bar and hire the mariachi band for 45min session to play prior to dinner.

 

3rd Here is the FAQ attachment they sent, it covers lots of the questions people have asked previously. Hope it helps.

 

4th I will keep you all posted after the wedding and let you know how it goes.

 

happy planning-

 

Jaime

I can't wait to see your pictures! Please post the TTD pics from that hotel's photographer....(just so I can kick myself in the ASS for not hiring him for that)

How much will he be charging?

Is anyone getting married at noonhuh.gif I think the only time slot they have at the Riu is from 11 to 12. I think it should be fine, but I just don't know how flexible they are with the reception times. Any info??

Hey girls-

 

Regarding the TTD pictures, I actually won't be hiring the photographer from the resort b/c my man's mom and one of his friends are both photographers (not professional but excellent with all the good gear and stuff). Lucky me, they are planning to take lots of pics and the TTD pics the day after.

 

Flexibility with the reception is questionable...they are flexible if you have a group of 27 or less, or 100 or more. If you are in between the choices are very limited, and you have to eat at 8:45pm. So make sure to ask before you decide to have a 12pm wedding (depending on your group size). You may have a very long wait if not.

 

I think everything is planned now for me and I will be leaving on Feb 1st YIPPEE! I can't wait to get there and get married! Pictures to come but they will not be here until late Feb early March as we are extending the honeymoon :)

 

Take Care all and best wishes planning-

Jaime

Hello,

 

I am looking into staying at Riu RM Palace - it looks great and the prices seem pretty good compared to some of the places I have been looking at. But the lack of choices for reception dinner and the timing for the dinners are frustrating me. have any of you looked into doing a reception dinner off site? Maybe in town on 5th Ave? I'm just about to start looking into that...although that will probably just boost the price up...

 

We are hoping to have the wedding early Dec 09...so am getting anxious to get a location picked and booked! :P

HI-

I am getting married at RPRM and I have the caprice package. I am thinking of doing Botofogo but I am concerned about the dj and having a private reception. Does anyone know how much they are expecting us to pay extra for a private reception and also is the dj realllly worth 1,000huh.gif Thanks!

 

ALSO- Are the decorations for the caprice package super nicehuh.gif Do chair covers and ribbons come with the package?blush2.gif

    • 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.
