    Fire Dancers would be amazing!!! I sent an inquiry about whether they're still available and will post when I get a response! Great question!

        josie + msbettyb,
        thanks for your advise will be carring my dress onto the plane for sure.

        was just wondering if any of you are going with just a small party?there are 6 of us and it worries me a little to hear that all of you are going with such big parties.this is the way we wanted it please do not feel sorry for us hehe.

        also is anyone else getting married in february 2010?i chased our travel agents today for our confirmed date but it has,nt arrived starting to get impatient.it should be here by the end of the week.i think it may be delayed as our first choice of date was 14th which is a sunday b/c we did not realise that they only did weddings mon-fri.

        thanks again guys

          Aw- Thanks Guys! :) ShellK- If you really wanted the 14th (not sure how bad you want it?) You may be able to get married on sunday via "symbolic" ceremony... My FI & I are getting "technically" married @ a courthouse before we leave because its such less hassel! Nobody knows except our parents, and they told me the Symbolic Ceremony looks exactly the same. We plan to always celebrate our anniversary on the 28th (day we're getting married @ RIU). Just wondered if you knew about this option.

          I know it sounds kinda un-romantic, but it was perfect for us & a lot easier, plus no one will no (except you guys) anyway! Plus, we want to spend our time in Mexico vacationing and not hasseling with having to translate marriage docs. into spanish, etc. etc....

            So I am really bummed.
            My fiance and I are flying down to the Riu Palace RM and will be staying there for 3 days. The main purpose for our trip is to assess the hotel and meet w/ the WC for an informational session re our potential wedding at RPRM. My procrastination really got the best of me bc I just contacted the WC yesterday to schedule the informational on any day betw Apr13-16. She got back to me in the afternoon and stated that april is their busiest month, but that she would be able to meet with me on Apr 25th at 200pm. Lordy! My FI is going to kill me if he finds out I dropped the ball on this one. I have to salvage this....I sent her a second email begging for a meeting, please cross your fingers for me guys....I hope she gets back to me w/ better news.

            Josie, ShellK---I too plan on getting married at a court house b4 the actual big day. There's just too much hoopla to go thru in order to do the real thing here in Mexico. My cousin had her DW at the Riu Palace Punta Cana last Aug and she did the same thing, that is, got married at a court house or city hall(not sure which one) in NY b4 going dwn to Punta CAna for her actual wedding. She had the non-recognized ceremony in Punta CAna, but it was officiated by a Minister and no one was the wiser. Except for a couple of us in her wedding party.

              MSBetty- Oh No! I'll definitely keep my fingers crossed for you. I bet you anything that once you're there they will find time for you! Plus, you'll still be able to scout out the resort extensively, so it wouldn't be a total waste! The WC's at RIU seem really reasonable, so I'm hoping they meet with you....good luck!

              Also glad to hear there are others getting married before hand! I felt kinda strange about it at first, but now I think it's the perfect solution. My travel agent also told me that it was very common and no one ever knows the difference! Keep us posted on what happens with your trip!

              For others: I updated the "Directions" portion of my website yesterday, with info on how to get to the RIU from Cancun Airport. You can print the page, or if you want me to Print it, PDF it, & email to you it's no problem! Most of our guests are booking packages with round trip transportation, but we had a few stragglers asking for this info, and you wouldn't believe how difficult it is to figure out directions in Mexico! Just thought I'd share!

                We are getting married before at the courthouse too. I think a ton of brides on here are doing the same

                Josie-did you find out anything about the fire dancers??

                  Fire Dancers- Not Yet! If April is their busiest month they may be slower to respond, I'll post ASAP!

                    msbettyb,
                    try not to get too stressed it will all work its self out.if i was you after lots of begging i would go bridezilla on them and explain that if they do not see you they will be turning down a wedding and lots of money.im sure they can find a little time for you.or can you not ask to see the hotel manager insted then they will find time for you.and josie is right i am sure once you are there they will see you.

                    keep my fingers crossed for you xxx

                      Ok good news guys! You all must have been praying for me!

                      The WC got back to me and she fit me in for a morning appt on the last day of our stay in Mexico(Apr 16). She gave me a 1030am appt, but I requested that we meet earlier so that I can make it out to the airport at a decent time. The fact that I know she is at least available one day out of my stay is a relief.
                      Also, apparently all of the informational sesssion take place at the Riu Palace Mexico. I checked the website out and it appears that that hotel is not too far from the RPRM because the address for the two hotels are very similar. Does anyone know for sure if the Riu Palace Mexico is w/in walking distance from the RPRM?

                      ShellK--You're a spunky one! I think this is the 2nd time I've read a post by you stating "go bridezilla on em'!" I like your attitude and when it comes to our day, we better get what we want!

                      Josie-- Im happy you're taking care of the FireDancers/performers. I too am interested and can't wait till you get any news.

                      Listen guys, if there is anything you would want me to check out at the RPRM while I am there, please feel free to send me an email and I;ll do my best to assess. I figure anything you're thinking of I may need to assess myself.
