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??

Thanks!

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:

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

    • 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.
