    Wedding Date?? Nov 07
    wedding location??

    Hi ladies I am sooo glad this site exists. We have not picked a location yet and we would like to get married the week of Thanksgiving. Many of the dates are already taken. We are considering Los Cabos, Aruba or Paradise Island or ? My Fiance would like a place with Casino's and I have already veto'd Vegas however it is still a possibility since many of the resorts have not responded to my requests.

        I have reserved wed. 21st of Nov. But I have not received confirmation for Riu Palace. I love the resort and have seen many pics. Prices are not clear for extras. Like the bonfire etc. I would like the Royal Package apps. dinner open bar and dj. I have requested the Gazebo for the ceremony and not sure about reception location. Any ideas?

          Hi Jolene, welcome! Is there anything else specific that you are looking for aside for a casino? Do you want an AI? Will kids be traveling with you? Let us know how we can help.

            I am having my reception at the mexican terrace. A private party is 500 dollars extra. The food is included, but an open bar is 10 per person/per hour. If you want to send me a private message with your email I can send you some pictures and info that I have received. I think appetizers are 7 per person, I am having a cocktail hour between the ceremony and the reception. How many people are you planning on having.

                  We are estimating 20-30 people. (hopefully) How do you know how many will come? How have all of you estimated the number of guests? Resorts want to know a number and how many rooms? I wont know until i set the date and send out save the dates. We would like all inclusive but it is not a necessity. Many friends said they will go where ever and when ever we decide. Yet others are concerned with expense. No save the dates until I lock in a location. Hopefully i will hear from Riu in Cabo soon. Do you recommend using a TA or corrdinator to assist with bookings for guests etc.?? It is all overwhelming.
