Hi,

I got married there on 07th. October this year. You have made a fantastic choice!! Everything was wonderful and cared for. I personally would not recomend the DJ. There are unless you you have LOADS of guest and wanted to keep them al together for a while after the reception. But there are plenty of thing to do together (e.g. night shows,etc).

They do not have a great choice of flowers. I selected a bouquet I found on Internet and asked them to duplicate. They did a great job!!

 

All the restaurants have a set menu. So if you would like to try the food first just have to make a booking in the retaurant of your choice. We did it in the mexican Agave, very charming and excellent service. But all restaurants are GREAT!!

 

The photographer: I must recommend Juan Carlos Magallon. He works with the hotel, but we talked to him personally and he agreed to be with us for the whole day. We can not be happier with his work!!

 

For the cake, they gave us two choices regarding shape. It tasted much nicer that we expected!!

 

I hope this hepls to get you started!! If you have any more questions, I'll be glad to help!

 

Good luck and congratulations!!

 

R&S.

Hi, they contacted us about 2 months before the wedding. They sent several attachments with photos and details and we booked some them. However, when we got to the resort we changed a little bit our minds (e.g. we booked Chillis for our wedding reception, but lunch take place in there every single day, so changed to Agave). "Botafogo"is also perfect for a wedding venue and if your group is big you can even have it private, just for your group.

I've been trying to upload some photos but it keep failing. I'm in Facebook as Susana Gager. If anyone is interested you can see them there!!

Hey girls, I'm considering the RPRM for my May 2010 wedding. I've got some questions as well! I have 50 people and I saw that I have to do the late sitting for dinner (at 8:30), just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for what to do between ceremony and dinner? Can you do cocktails? Is that extra, or because it's an all-inclusive resort, can we just drink at one of the bars? Also, after dinner, is there somewhere to go for dancing? Can like set up the DJ by the pool? Is open bar included with dinner, or is it just like wine and beer? Sorry, too many questions! :)muscle.gif

Hi,

You can do cocktails but something set especially for you will have an extra cost. Or you can just drink in any of the bars for free, but that wont be as private and will have no food.

We had a cocktail in a catamaran, we were pick up at the hotel lobby, taken to the marina, had a sunset cruise of about 2 1/2 hours with open bar and lovely food and then returnred back to the hotel for about $500. You can hire a DJ but he has his sesion in the restaurant where your reception takes place and he finishes at about midnight. No many places to dance in the RPRM but there is a night club in one of the other Riu's that you can use with an open bar for free (it is about 10-15 minutes walking from RPRM)
Hope this help.

Hi Susana!  I hope you do not mind, but I just peaked at your photos on FB!  I am planning an April 2013 wedding at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya.  Just waiting to confirm the Easter 2013 school break week.  I see you may have rented a charter for after your ceremony?  We are from upstate NY and are boaters - that looks like a great idea.  Did you set that up through an external excursion?  Thanks!  Elissa :-)

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
