    Here is the email I got from Ael:

    Dear Lisa,

    Thank you for choosing RIU Hotels & Resorts for your Wedding!!

    To finalize your wedding details before your arrival, please be so kind to provide us with the following information:

    1. A list with your guest's full names, arrival dates and Hotel booked (including bride & groom)

    2. Which restaurant would you prefer Bota Fogo at 8:45pm or Chillis at 8:45pm?
    Please bare in mind that groups over 27 people for dinner will be accommodated during the 2nd seating.

    - Chillis, is an open air restaurant, close to the beach area, tropical and informal. (I have attached the menu for your consideration)

    - Bota Fogo, has A/C, it's formal, Brazilian Rodizo style with a classic atmosphere. It could be private for groups of 50 guests in the 2nd seating time. (I have attached the menu for your consideration)

    Please let us know how many people will be in your wedding group to book your wedding dinner reservation. May we remind you that it is very important that you send us a list with full names, arrival and departure dates of all your guests as soon as possible. If some of them, do not have their room reservations yet, please suggest them to do it ASAP. Remember our 80% policy!! (at least 80% of your guests must stay at the hotel where the wedding will be held)

    2 Cake. Please choose one of the following options:
    - Flavor: Chocolate or Vanilla
    - Filling: Vanilla, Chocolate, Peach or Strawberry

    3. Please select the Wedding Spot of your choice:

    -At the RIU Palace Riviera Maya the options are:
    Gazebo: From 2 to 100 guests, near beach area w/ocean view but not private.
    Kiosk: From 2 to 30 guests, elegant, near lobby area, good for high heels.
    Beach: From 2 to 60 guests, not secluded and not recommended for disabled customers.

    Please note that the included decoration consists of white artificial flowers. Fresh Flowers are available at an additional cost (prices in FAQ document) You may make your decision once you meet your on-site wedding coordinator.

    The Royal and Caprice wedding package include some pictures, bare in mind that these pictures are just taken during the ceremony. I have attached the other photo packages available at an additional cost (in FAQ document). If you shall be interested in one of these, please let us know at your earliest convenience. Note: You will have the opportunity to see previous photos taken during our meeting upon arrival.

    In the FAQ document enclosed, you will also find the SPA information to make reservations in advance.

    If there is something you would like to add but have not seen in any of our provided information please let us know and we will be happy to work with you to get it.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE - The RIU Palace Mexico is only a 15 minute walk from your hotel. Just take a left and follow the sidewalk until you see the property, if you need any special directions, please ask our front desk staff.

    It's extremely important that you show up at your appointment on time to finalize all your wedding details. By failing to do so, your wedding will be automatically be canceled.

    Thank you for your kind comprehension and do not hesitate to contact us if you shall require further assistance.

      What is the earlier seating time for dinner? More than 27 guests puts you at the late seating (8:45) but I'm starting to loose a bit of optimism that we'll reach or exceed 27 guests

      Hmm what cake combinations sound good to you guys? Vanilla and peach? Chocolate and strawberry?

      Thanks for sharing the email, Josie. So exciting that it's almost your time!!

        Anyone hear anything about the videography at RPRM? I wonder if their work is nice and how expensive is it.
        For the wedding ceremonies, do they automatically set up speaker system or do you have to pay extra for that? I know it can be loud and windy being outside.

          I changed my "mood" to sad.... 2 out of 3 of my bridesmaids have let me know they may not make it after all. I'm about 1/3 sad, 1/3 confused, 1/3 pissed... I know it's expensive to come... you've had 1.5 years of advance notice... it upsets me that you're acting like this isn't even important. One of them asked me to move the wedding back to the states. Can you believe that?!
          I'm pretty far from bridezilla but this makes me want to scream! They're my cousins, I wouldn't even DREAM of not attending their weddings! aaarrrrggggghhhh!

          *rant over* :)

              KimmyG - That sucks about your BM's, they still have time though, maybe they will change their minds. At least you will still have a blast, they are the one's missing out!
