Riu v. Dreams....another one

Recommended Posts

Hey Y'all,

I am ready to book with Riu, but I keep reading these posts about how great Dreams is, so it is reallllly swaying me. How close is Dreams to downtown - would anyone know how much a cab would cost either? Also, I tried to make an online reservation at Riu and emailed Daniela, I know she is notorious for not returning emails though. Should I be worried about not having it reserved if it is not until August 15th? I am so clueless about this...Thank GOD for this site!!!!!

 

Thanks everyone!

I stayed at the Melia which is almost next door to dreams and it was a $25 each way cab ride. The first step for reserving the wedding goes thru the corp Riu then they send you to Daniella after you get a confiramtion number. I wouldn't be concerned. They have to make sure they can get you a minister the day you requested. It tool a couple days for us to hear back. Good luck!

Thanks Kelly! That 25 bucks might get annoying for a lot of my friends...since they are already forking out the money to come down there too! We are flying our priest down with us to perform the ceremony at San Jose del Cabo Catholic Church, so all I have to worry about is the reception (I hope!). I am just worried it is going to be super hot, but if its a dry heat, I'm from Dallas, so I can handle that : ) because the church has no ac.

 

I submitted that request over 2 weeks ago, but I might see if my travel agent can work something out to help me get in touch with her. I meet with him on Monday. Between work and grad-school 2 nights a week, this planning is a nightmare! And since we are paying for it ourselves, I really have to stay on budget and I don't think I can hire a WC just yet, but I might later on.

 

BTW- Shout out STL! I graduated from SLU in 2005 (Go Billikens!) did you find pretty good rates for everyone from there because a lot of my girlfriends from school and my entire extended family are flying out of there. Thanks again for your help and congratulations...you are almost married!!!

Megan, My TA is the one that pushed it thru for me, so I would definetly get them involved.

It will come together this is the hardest part. My guest are paying 1200 each for 7 days. which I dont think is bad at all. But that is at the Santa fe. I was more for the Palace, that is why we chose SF. We are flying thru dallas so maybe you can pick up with your guest on the way there. That would be cool. We have guest coming out of Chicago that we meet up with in Dallas.

 

Almost there!!! Im ready!!

Congratulations on your wedding!!
I am getting married at the Palace in just over 2 weeks (holy sh**t!! Lol.) and I thought I could give you some insight-I have not had any issues w/ Daniela taking too long to get back to me. She has actually really impressed me with her response time, so I have only positive things to say....(hopefully that won't change when we get there!) I have never been to Cabo, but I was told the resort is pretty close to town ($10 cab ride) or even walking along the beach. This was huge for me as I wanted our guests to have the option of being able to do "touristy" things if they so desire...

Like Kelly said-I would contact my TA to get things rolling to secure a date.

I have lots of info, so let me know if you'd like any more questions answered!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
