Are any of you getting your hair done at the salon? & are you making the appointment before you go or are you just going to wait til you are down there?

Hey ladies! Just was reading through. We are getting married at Riu Palace Mexico, June 29th. I just booked last week and am trying to collect as much info as I can. We had originally planned on it just being us and our 3 children. Now it looks like about 20 guests may be coming. I'm super excited since it's kinda short notice. I didn't see a specific thread for RPM so I thought I would start reading through here. I have no clue where to start. If anyone has pricing information, I would love to have it.  Also advice would be much appreciated. Thanks so much ladies :)

So I am the worlds worst self wedding planner. lol. Are there questions I should be asking the wedding coordinator that I can not think of at this time? What should be hashed out before I get there. Ladies any help would be super appreciative. I have absolutley no idea what I am doing, or forgetting. What are types of things you asked, or planned out through email with the coordinators? I feel like Im not asking or requesting the proper things. Help :) LOL

Hello all,

 

I recently got married at Riu Palace Riviera Maya in November of last year and had 40 guests in attendance. I used this board quite frequently when planning my wedding so I thought it was only fair that I give some sort of review of our experience. I posted the review in my travel blog, which you can find here. Additionally, I had a separate review of the resort here

 

Overall, we were satisfied with our wedding experience at RPRM but at the same time we were both quite frustrated with some of the pricing and costs associated with the wedding. 

 

And yes, it's true that the wedding coordinator will email you about 1-2 months prior to your wedding to confirm the major details. Additionally, you'll have a meeting when you arrive at the resort to finalize the last minute details. 

 

I would recommend making your appointment in advance at the spa, especially if your bridal party or family wants to make appointments as well. There are only two chairs in the spa and on the day of my wedding between myself, bridesmaids, and my mom, we ate up more than half of their available appointment time. 

 

If you want a DJ at your reception, you'll need to request that ahead of time as well. Also, if you want a private reception at a specific restaurant, request that far in advance as there tends to be multiple weddings every day at the resort. Aside from that though, most everything else can be handled after you arrive at the resort. 

 

Happy planning!

 

Jennifer

Hello,

 

I recently got married at RPRM in November of 2012. Since I used the boards so frequently during the planning process, I thought it was only fair that I complete some sort of review. I posted my review in my travel blog here. Additionally, I posted a review of the resort here

 

Overall we were satisfied with our wedding experience at RPRM but were frustrated with the many costs that were associated with the wedding that we hadn't expected in the beginning.

 

And yes, the wedding coordinator will email you 1-2 months prior to your wedding to confirm the major details. Additionally, after arriving at the resort you will have a meeting with the wedding coordinator to finalize the last minute details. 

 

The only other things I think it's important to nail down prior to your arrival is the following:

  • Appointments at the spa (on the day of my wedding between myself, bridesmaids and my mom we ate up more than half of the available appointment time at the spa. They only have two chairs in their spa so they can't accomodate more than two people at once).
  • DJ: If you want to have music at your reception, it's important to reserve the DJ ahead of time with the resort.
  • Private reception: If you are opting to go for the private reception option, make sure to let the resort know as far in advance as you can. Typically there were at least two weddings every day, and sometimes as many as three so if you really want a private reception at Chili's for example, you must book it before someone else does!
  • Cocktail hour: In between your ceremony and reception the resort will offer you the option of using one of their bars for your cocktail hour. We specifically wanted to use the outdoor bar area (Lyrico) so we made sure to reserve this several months in advance. There was another wedding that occurred immediately after ours and they had to use the lobby bar since we had already reserved the outdoor bar.

 

That's all I can think of right now! If you have any questions let me know!

 

Jennifer

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
