Hi Karaline, I know Andrea must be busy cuz she has been avoiding a reply to the email I sent her last week with questions. Grrrrrr - SO FRUSTERATING!!

I am getting married at the gazebo next door at the Jalisco and then having the dinner and reception there as well. We hired 2 bartenders for the night. Did you get any info on cakes? That's what I was looking for... as well as renting stuff for the recepton (candle holders, etc).

What questions were you inquiring about?

    Hey Melissa!

    Did you hire the bartenders from RIU? What is your guest count?

    We haven't gotten cake info- that is one of the questions that wasn't answered.

    I asked questions about;

    1) Where on the beach will the ceremony be held? Are there pictures yet of Riu Vallarta weddings/receptions yet?

    2) Attached is a photo I found online; is this how the tables will be set up for the reception?

    3) Is there an option of having the reception set up on the beach?

    4) Do you have pictures of centerpieces?

    5) When do we have our rehearsal?

    6) Attahced is a picture of a Riu cake I found online. Do you have pictures and prices?

    She only answered the one about the reception set-up picture I attached. Hopefully she will answer more, or I will just have to e-mail Tina instead.

    Good luck- let me know what happens!

        Thanks for the well wishes. We are doing our honeymoon at RIU Palace Los Cabos. Can you suggest any fun things to do/see?

          Hi mgreen and karalane-

          I have actually had a good experience with Andrea. I do know that sometimes her messages don't come through as quickly if she has pictures attached. Those messages sometimes bounce back to her so she will send them to an alternate e-mail address that I sent her. I found this out because I called her directly after I had not heard back from her, but she has always been very responsive to my questions, although sometimes it may take her a couple of days.

          Regarding their cakes, I found them to be very basic. She sent me some pics of cakes that they have done in the past and if you e-mail me at deanna_epps@sbcglobal.net I will try to send them to you. Anyway, they were more basic than my FH and I were looking for, so Andrea suggested Pie In The Sky Bakery in Puerto Vallarta. You should send Andrea pics of the type of cake you want and ask if that is something they can do.

          The decorations for the reception are VERY basic...just white linens and napkins from what I understand. You are allowed to bring in your own if you like. I'm not sure what, if any, centerpieces are provided. I think there is an option to have the reception on the beach, at one of the restaurants (Flamingo or the Asian restaurant) or in their ballroom, but the ballroom won't be all-inclusive.

          We are planning a welcome beach party on the Friday before the wedding and our rehearsal will be right before that.

          I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

            Hi- Andrea did get back to us :) It has been hard because when we initially booked we were with a different coordinator. Oh well! We want to have the reception on the Beach- however Andrea advised agaisnt it because it could rain.

            I think we will bring in our own decorations for the reception....not sure what yet.

            As for the Bar Mezcal set up; do they have a dance area?

            It is coming up so soon- I have to finalize this stuff.

            Oh - are you girls using the Spa there for hair?
