          Great to *meet* some more Riu PDC brides! Not too many of us on the boards. Katrina's reviews and threads were extremely helpful...if you haven't seen them, check them out. Planning is...going. I haven't been contacted to decide anything yet. I expect that I will be getting an email from the WC very soon. Today is 2 months out. Also, I discovered a website, riubambu.com that had a lot of answers to Riu resort and wedding questions...might help you girls if you haven't been planning for too long.

            I got married 30.10.2008 in Playa del Carmen in a semi private beach, but I stayed in Riu Yucatan. First I also planned to get married in Riu Yucatan, but I changed my mind. My wedding was organized by Carribean Blue Wedding and I loved that. I saw one wedding organized in Riu Yucatan, not on the beach but in the garden. They have a beautiful garden there, with lots of animals. It is really great. One thing I didn't like is that wedding in the hotel is not private and there are a lot of tourists who watch all the ceremony.

              Hey ladies, I am also getting married at Yucatan on January 16th 2009....Jill, will you still be there? What time is your ceremony? Are you doing garden or beach? Religious or civil? I have been in contact with them, I really don't like Cynthya at all, she is really rude, but I like the hotel management, they are pretty accomodating. I have thought about cancelling my wedding at the Yucatan and doing what Magda did, but it's tough. Magda, can you tell me more about how your ceremony went? How many people? Where did you do dinner? Did you enjoy dinner? Did you do cocktail hour and a dance? Was it expensive? Anything and everything you can tell me would be fantastic!! Thanks

                Hi Kristin,
                first of all congratulation on your wedding :-)
                I made my wedding with Carribean Blue Wedding (Playa del Carmen Caribbean Blue Weddings Home Page)
                We had a really small wedding, just us, our parents and our friends, together it was 8 people. We had a civil ceremony with a Mexican Judge, but they also organize: catholic, non denominational, spiritual, even cosmic or mayan ceremony :-) Our ceremony was set up at the beautiful semi-private beach where there were no people. We contact with them only through the mail, they gave us a cellphone numbers also, but from Poland mail was cheaper. I have to say that we had no problem, cooperation was perfect. Girls were really patient and they always respond very quickly for my mails and answer for my questions. They are really professional. We didn't have to worry about anything, all paper work did CBW, they made an appointment for the blood tests, they ordered a guitar trio, videographer etc. Photographer we found by ourselves but they had one if you want. Our work together based on pics, they sent us pictures of arch, set up of the beach, my bridal's bouquet so that we could chose whatever we liked and it turned out to be totaly the same like at the pics. We had a guitar trio instead of Mariachi. We didnt have a reception, just a dinner but we wanted to have it in the beachfront restaurant so they found it for us. We stayed in Maramao restaurant. Lovely, small restaurant near the 5th avenida. I know that they organize reception there. For dinner for 8 people and all drinks (also alcohol) we paid $400.
                Three days before the wedding we had a meeting with CBW where I was given a schedule of the wedding day: time of my hairdresser, time when the van will be for us at the hotel etc. All cost of my wedding was $3600.

                  I'm getting married on the 8th and leaving for our honeymoon resort on 1/10. The ceremony is at 3pm on the beach...vow renewal...we're doing the civil ceremony at home a few weeks before. Is Cynthya the wedding coordinator there now? When I booked my wedding it was Fabiola. Is she gone? I haven't heard anything about making my wedding choices yet, have you?

                      Jill, Cynthya is the new coordinator I guess. Not sure if Fabiola is still there or not. I actually emailed them first and they emailed me back right away. The biggest thing that bugs me is that my ceremony is at 3:00pm and dinner isn't until 8:45!! If you have a group smaller than 27 you can have the first seating...I have about 50 so I'm stuck with eating dinnner 5 hours after the ceremony which I feel is ridiculous. So needless to say I will probably have a lot of drunk guests at dinner...Oh well. Let me know how many people are in your party....I wish I could fly down a few days earlier to see your ceremony so I could get feedback from you :)
