    @ elissae and any other past brides,

     

    How are the rooms?  Were they as dated as they apprear in pictures?  Were your guest impressed?

      We used Adventure Photo at the resort.  I worked with Sergio, he is the Chief Photographer at the resort.  Love him!  Our pictures are perfect!  We had a video of the ceremony & beach footage as well - love it!  Well worth the money!  All the pictures I have been posting so far are what they took at the ceremony, etc.

       

      When I booked them, I orginally dealt with Petar Gachevski - he is the Regional Manager.  His email is pgachevski@vallarta-adventures.com  Please tell him I said hello if you should reach out to him for pricing.

       

      Please let me know if I can assist further!  xoxo

       

       

      Awesome Elissa! 

       

      I have had some contact with Petar at Adventure Photo already.  I would love to have photography/videography at our wedding.  Your pics are stunning...looks like you had beautiful weather too.  I tried and tried to get our wedding time moved up when I found out the sun sets earlier in the fall months but they said the officiant had a wedding prior to ours and therefore could not move our wedding up.  Hoping we don't get married in the dark...maybe I can chat with Erika about some lighting around the gazebo if necessary.  I wonder if the photogs can take pics on the beach at dusk or in the dark...might be kind of neat.

       

      I am thinking we will use the resort DJ too.  We have a list of reception songs that we are adding to constantly but definitely do not want to bother with it ourselves during our reception.  I think I will take your advice and have a seating chart and escort cards. 

       

      I'm trying to think of any other questions I can ask...I always go blank...need to start a list!  This blog is very helpful:)

        I just want to make sure I am in the correct place. Riu RM stands for Riu Mexico right? As in the newly renovated hotel? I have fallen in love with this hotel.

            Okay I think they are two different hotels after doing some research :)

            Both are in Riviera Maya, but Riu Mexico was just renovated! It has the pretty purple :)

            When are you looking at getting married MrsShoreyToBe? I'm hoping for 9/20/14!

              exactly! Ok so RM is the riviera maya one, but its' the mexio which was renovated! Sorry I confused you lol!!!!

               

              Congrats! And yay, you have so much time!!! :) We are getting quotes between jan - april 2014; our TA won't book anything for us until mid-end of summer because she knows she will be able to get wicked rates if we just wait lol!

               

              Riu mexico/RM and grand sunset princess are top choices for us at this point!!

               

              When did you get engaged!!? Is Riu RM/mexico one of ur hopeful places? :)

                Congrats to you too! I'm really jealous yours is so soon! It's a weird situation because I'm not engaged yet. Hopefully soon! He has the ring :) My boyfriend has blackout dates for vacation next year when they convert software at work. He is one of the main people for the conversion. We have to have a date picked so he can make sure they don't convert that month! In order to have a date we need a venue! Lol I haven't checked out Grand Sunset Princess yet! My top choice was VIM, but it was too pricy! Riu is adding up with the private reception fee :( When are you going to book your venue?

                  I think RM stands for "Riviera Maya" which is one of the few Riu resorts in Playa del Carmen.  Shannon & I are getting married at the Riviera Maya too!!  :)

                    I got married at RPRM on May 4th of this year. I will eventually get around to writing a full review, but right now I am still trying to decompress. We have not even picked our pics out yet. That being said, the resort is great, Erika is great, the wedding was great, the semi private cocktail hour was great. We have no complaints at all about the wedding.

                     

                    Or AC in our room was not working well, we never complained. It wasn't that bad. However, getting ready in there was awful!! So, if your AC is not in full function, get that fixed! I thought I was going to pass out from heat stroke!!

                     

                    We were seated at the 8:30 dinner seating because we did a semi private dinner. We were literally the only people in the restaurant, they took great care of us!! With that, came a 3 hour cocktail hour. We have quite a rowdy group of family and friends and the Don Julio was flowing like crazy in celebration so dinner was quite funny! Lol

                     

                    Keep the planning easy and simple, try not to stress. We did not overdue it with decor or anything and we had an amazing time and so did all 38 of our guests!!

                      Thank you for your post!  I can't wait to read your full review.  It sounds like you all had an amazing time.  Congratulations:)
