    How are you presenting the welcome bags to the guests? Are you giving them to the front hotel staff to distribute?

        The wedding coord does not seem to be much help. She answers my questions days later, but at least they are finally getting answered. I feel like there is really no timeline put together. How does everyone else feel??

          I was feeling the same way. I realized that Fernanda doesn't work Sunday and Monday, so you won't get responses from Thursday's questions until Tuesday.

              Hello Past and Future RIU Brides! I have chosen the RIU RM as one of my 3 resorts to be married. I'm very excited and congrats to you all! I read 70% of this thread and there were some very helpful tips, advice, and information. Now I'm narrowing down my selection and need to make a decision of which resort I would like to have my symbolic ceremony. the FI and I is planning a May 2014 destination wedding to the RM area. I've seen quite a few photo's of the amazing weddings however one thing that I don't really see. It looks like the ceremony is on the beach however it's still not near the ocean. I really like to be as close as we can to the ocean. Does anyone know if this can be accommodated? Does anyone have any more ceremony photo's? Or it's a set location and don't have a choice? I've seen a few photos and they were most likely in the middle of the beach with a fence and there were onlookers in the back photos. I don't like this and prefer it to be as close as we can to the ocean with no onlookers in the background of the ceremony location. The sides are fine as it doesn't bother me. Another Question: The dining menu in the a la carte restaurants. Are they the same menu as the restaurant or is it a different menu you select? I would appreciate any past brides experience on this. Thanks! Lilly

                Hey Em - I am going to bring my Welcome Bags down to the Front Desk the morning of each guests arrival date and they will give to them when they check in.  Cannot wait to put them all together once I get there!  The welcome tags have the guests names and their arrival dates on them.  Here are a few pics:


                Haven't heard much from all you ladies in awhile, how is all the planning coming along? Our weddings are all vastly approaching!! :)

                I guess my planning is done...I have 4 suitcases packed  & ready to go with all the OOT bags, their contents, favors, wedding/reception decor, etc.  I included a list of each suitcase's content and correlating receipts in each.


                I am now just waiting on some last minute waterproof stickers to arrive to put on OOT tumblers ( I will do this in Mexico), waiting on my cake topper (fingers crossed it arrives before I leave or I will have one of my friends checking for it and bringing it with them) and last but not least - I got my matches back from Cancun customs yesterday so now I am distributing one matchbox a piece to all my guests so they can pack them in their carry on.   SUCH A JOKE!  LOL  They are one detail I do want at the cocktail hour with the cigar roller.  :-)


                We leave a week from this Wednesday so now I am just finishing up loose ends - it's going to be a busy 12 days!!!!


                This week I did the following:


                Started packing

                Ordered/purchased all the wedding gifts, cards, etc. 

                Put together a music list for the DJ and sent it to the resort

                Bought some music on iTunes that I wanted to make sure I had for ceremony/reception - need to make an easy playlist so it's all in one place.

                I set up my appointments with Ariadna and the resort photgrapher.  (Thurs 3/28)

                Contacted my credit card company to let them know our Mexico travel dates so they know I will be using the card in Mexico for wedding expenses (don't need any issues there).


                Next week I will  be:


                Completing my LAST WEEK of the INSANITY workout!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WOOT HOOT!

                Getting my teeth cleaned this Tuesday 3/19   :-)

                Final dress fitting next Thursday (last minute touch ups) 3/21

                Hair next Friday night 3/22

                Pick up dress next Saturday morning 3/23 

                BACHELORETTE NIGHT next Saturday night

                Monday 3/25 manicure/pedicure

                Tuesday 3/26 eyebrow & Bikini wax

                Wednesday 3/27 - DEPART FOR MEXICO!!!!


                I cannot believe the time has come.  I am ready to do this and to be done planning.  lol  Love you ladies!!  xoxo

                Blissfully married since April 2, 2013.

                  Hello Ladies,


                  I've been a member for quite sometime, this is my first time posting. FH and I are getting married at the RIU Cancun Resort on April 27, 2013 just him and I. I'm getting overly excited that my day is fast approaching. Congrats to all the upcoming and past brides.
