My fiacne really wants to wait to see me till right down the isle and do the pics afterwards- but will it be too dark??

        Kara and Ryan-
        yeah we are getting there tuesday- staying till sunday then honeymooning at the barcelo palace till thursday. What about you??
        That is so exciting! Plans are going pretty well- just kinda waiting for it to get closer so I can start doing more things. Are you bringing a lot of decorations or place settings along with you? Who are you having for your photographer?

          Brit-
          I am going to bring some decorations... centerpieces, napkins, etc.... not place settings though. I am still undecided on a photographer. Whenever I contact RIU they tell me that I am not allowed any outside vendors.... but I have seen other RIU brides that have.... so I am a bit confused. What about you?? Have you run into any problems??

            Kara-
            I am still undecided on decorations. But as for the photos- I hired Paul/Rachel Schrank of Playaweddings. Basicall I have to book them one night stay so they are considered "guests" of my wedding- that is the loop hole.

                Hey-
                I am wondering about packages and extras...
                We picked the Royal package- what did you guys pick.
                Did you get the girls and guys flowers? What other extras did you pick?
                Also- Katrina- what did they serve for food- appetizers/entree and dessert- are there any other options besides cake??

                  katrina- great review. your hotel looked great & everything was set up so nice! i think you took great pictures! the riu is such a nice hotel, i stayed there once.

                    hi brit,
                    we also did the royal. as for flowers, we get my bouquet, 2 bm bouquets, 1 boutenniere, and 2 corsages.

                    i've attached the menus for you- i don't think they change really.
