Maggie - your wedding is right around the corner! yay! Ariadna has been good about responding, but in truth she does not answer questions to their full potential. Its a bit stressful. I didn't know we could have the reception on the beach & this is what I thought I'd wanted, so maybe i'll inquire about that. I just really hope once we all get down there as brides things will come together!

Adriadna has been good with information up until this evening.  UGH!

 

I sent a response tonight letting her know I am starting to get concerned (along with some other brides).  I put Paola on copy.  Hopefully things will get better, for all of us!!!

I truly hope things get better! I don't really know where to begin on my planning process, and it hasn't been going so smoothly! Its hard to make a timeline when the questions I ask don't get answered!

Hi RIU Palace Brides!

 

I am new to this thread and I was hoping someone might be able to get me a better idea in terms of pricing. We have been searching non stop for a resort that suits our needs and stays within our budget. It has been really discouraging this far and we have researched so many different resorts and then I came back to the RIU Palace and now I am wondering why we haven't inquired about it?!

 

Has anyone stayed at this resort? Or gotten married at this resort that could give me some tips? Anything you would change? What location did you choose to get married at? If you chose to get married right on the beach how private was your experience and were there a lot of people from the resort watching walking the beach during the ceremony?

 

We initially were planning to marry in January 2014 thinking that we would allow our guests a lot of notice and time to plan financially and it would break up the cold winter season. But, as it turns out when booking early you still have to pay the full pricing within so many months so it makes no difference if we were to get married say November / December. 2014 pricing hasn't really become available yet either in terms of wedding packages etc. So we are now thinking along the lines of December.

 

I was really hoping you ladies might be able to help us get the ball rolling and give an idea in terms of pricing most of us will be flying out of Toronto or Ottawa if it is an option and a better price. Plus most of our other guests will be flying out of Regina, Saskatchewan which we just learned will cost $200-$300 extra per person...

 

When we choose a wedding package do we have to pay for it up front? Do we pay for it once we get to the resort? Or make payments over time? Oh boy I am soooo new to this.

 

If emailing pricing is easier please email me at decker.wedding@hotmail.com

 

Thank you for your time!!

Do any of you have any type of price list you could send me? It's hard to budget when I am not sure what the prices are. I still have some time since mine is not until June but it makes planning easier if I know the costs beforehand. Hope all of the planning is going well for you girls!

Are any of you writing your own vows? I thought I read awhile back, in posts that they don't really want you to do this? Am I just making that part up? lol.

Hello RIU RM brides,

 

I know the planning process can be a bit stressful but know that you are in good hands!!! Most onsite wc's pick up all conversations around 1 - 2 months prior to your big day and that's when everything starts coming to life beautifully :)

 

While you wait for your day to approach, continue to follow these threads and gather pics and ideas to show your wc. If you show them a pic of your favorite cake or bouquet, I'm sure they'll do their best to recreate for you or offer something similar.

 

In the meantime, check out these wonderful pics of our most recent wedding there:

Emily and Ryan got a bit creative with their schedule and locations:

 

Ceremony at 3:00PM, beach area in front of the Chili's Restaurant for more privacy

Semi Private Cocktails at 4:30PM in the Lobby Bar. Great time to chill with friends and family and have a good drink before dinner.

Reception at 7:00 PM in the Mezzannine Terrace of the Chili's. Perfect for intimate wedding parties.

Guests: 25

Wedding coordinator by the wonderful Paola Madin

Hope this info helps and please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Best wishes,

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
