    Shellk - I did look at Trip Advisor to be honest thats what made us decide on the place and also the reviews that I read here.

    Lisa - Thanks about the TA info! I have never used a travel agent before but probably will do so this time. I have always used Expedia.com for any travel and the last two times that I was in Cancun and the prices there are good but no idea how they will look like 2010! We shall see :-)

      Lisa- Just got to see your pictures finally! I think they look great together! I actually prefer having two different colors like that.

      Samira- I don't know how many people you will be inviting, but I would definitely recommend working with a TA for everything. It might be a lot easier, especially if you have a large group of people who will be traveling. I would have never got the rates that I did without working with a TA.

        Hi everyone,

        Thanks for responding about the 80% thing. Maybe I'm being silly. I agree, I would like everyone to stay at the same resort as me. However, one of the nice things about the RIU is that there is a group of resorts with different price ranges. I would rather someone stay at one of the less expensive resorts than not come at all because it is too expensive. I also don't want to tell them that they MUST book at a certain resort. I just think the idea that the wedding could be cancelled is a little scary. That's just me. I always think about the worse possible scenario. I don't want to have to stress about anything else. But I'm sure all of you are right. Most guests would want to stay where you are. So you are probably fine and I would probably be fine too. Just something to think about.

          Oh, also something I thought of. I have a few guests that own time shares (outside of RIU) in the area and will be staying in those. That is only 5 of my guests. But my party will be pretty small (approx 30 guests).

            SDbeachgirl-As long as 80% stay at the RPRM then it is fine. I am pretty sure you will have to pay for day passes for the ones who stay at the timeshare. I know they are really strict about the 80% rule because she requested all of my guests information about what hotel they are staying at and their arrivals/departures/names ect. and she has said it several times. Hope that helps ya!

                Samira- congrats on the date! Let me know if they request any deposit from you- I personally would feel better that my date and time won't get double booked if I could put down a deposit. I haven't decided on STD's- I have seen some really cute passport ones on this forum, but Ill probably do something much easier such as a postcard or magnet. And I'm not planning on taking engagement photos so they might just be beach themed...

                Desiree- 1 month to go!!! So exciting!

                  You should try magnet street - Click the image to open in full size.

                  The white background you see on mine is an insert card where i put a bunch of additional info! The magnet held it up on the fridge, people loved them!

                    Hi everyone!!! I got a link from I think it was Tylersgirl to come here. Thank you!!! So, my name is June, getting married on December 22!!

                    I actually booked my trip last week, and this place looks absolutely beautiful!! I cannot wait to go there!
                    I ended up getting the Royal package... does anyone know what kind've bouquets they provide?? is it just the standard bouquet?

                    Josie, those magnets are so cute! I love them! did you end up giving them to everyone you invited or just the ones that are going?

                    Have you guys thought about favors? do you guys know what you're going to be handing out on the wedding day yet?? I was kinda thinking about maracas, or possibly waiting til I get to Mexico to buy them, but I have this fear that when I get there, i won't find anything I like. highly unlikely, but you never know..

                    wow.. i have a lot of reading to do on this.. 70 pages of reading.

                    Cheers!
