    Of course we used it!!!! It was amazing :) Its very big and feels just like a hot tub. To sit out there in gorgeous weather overlooking the ocean is incredible. At night you can see cozumel in the distance and the lights of that island. its so pretty :) Glad you liked the videos! i wish i would have thought to take more for you guys!

          Josie - the videos are awesome!!!

          Do any of you know the proper ettiquette (sp?) for sending out thank-you cards? I still have not sent thanks yous for the shower I had because it was 2 weeks before the wedding and I had no time. Is it to long after if I send them after the holidays for both the shower and wedding?

            josie,thanks for the videos you have got me thinking again do i book it or not.you wicked wife you.did you use the spa for makeup?

            lisa,i dont know the correct etq for the thankyou cards but i think you will be fine sending them now for both your shower and wedding but obviously just the one thankyou note.your guests will appreciate it and you will get the memories of the blast they had running back.

              Hi Everyone,

              Nora- thanks for the advice. i think i'm going to go to the little sales pitch and just see what its all about i mean whats 90 minutes of my life if i can somehow get a semi-paid for place to stay for a vacation. i'm not really expecting anything out of it but i'll let you guys know how it goes.

              Joise - your wedding looked amazing!! did you bring the chair bows and fans yourself or was it through RIU

              Sammysgirl - yea for going back to school!!! that is so exciting! good luck

              i was wondering what you girls are doing / did in terms of the photographer. Did you just use the one they recommended or did you bring your own. I was kind of hoping to bring in an outside photographer and was told it would be 100$ for a day pass for them.. however i never really realized how much wedding photographers are.... what do you guys think is a reasonable budget

              also about the reception i remember that some of you girls are having a private reception with a dj. i'm worried that my guest count wont be enough for a private reception and i dont want to pay extra if i just have 25 people. but then again i dont want to miss out on the first dance and father daughter dance.... any ideas?

              Alright! take care

              Lynn

                  Josie and Lisa thank you so much for all your info! Your pics are gorgeous! I'm so glad to hear you both had excellent weather and a great time!

                  Josie- where are your BM dresses from, and their shoes?? I really love them! Did you take the matching chair bows your self?

                    Dreamingofsunshine- I am using an outside photographer. I have read great things about the photog the Riu provides but I chose to hire Blue Lens Caribe, they are located in Riviera Maya and have been so great to work with thus far. I will pay the daily vendor fee ($100)- I found that prices can really vary- since our wedding is at 3 and reception isnt till 9 or so I had to book for all day which starts getting expensive.- but this photog group really worked with me to give the best arrangements of photos since I had to book for a full day but probably only need them for 5 or 6 hrs.

                      Dreamingofsunshine - I used the resort photographers (package 8, I think, it was $1200) They deffinately were not the greatest at coming up with poses but all our photos turned our beautifully. I just took charge and told them what I wanted. I would use them again, just be sure to have a list prepared of all the photos you want to get. You definately won't remember them all on the day of!!
