        Hey Carms! First of all... what a cool name!! Is it short for something? Second - woot, I love when there are more Canadians on the forum (let alone a fellow Albertan!) Welcome!
        Is there a reason you're going with RIU? Have you been there before? Just curious! :)
        Wow, Novemeber 2008 - you've got lots of time to plan. I almost had the exact same date as you!
        Welcome to the forum, Carms! :)

              Yes Carms is short for Carmen and we chose the RIU chain because our travel agency (not just our travel agent) was gushing about it. Several of them have been to weddings through them and I thought what the heck, why not. It fit our budget and alot of our wants. I am a very low-key kind of girl and didn't want any hassles or stress (although some always seem to pop up ).

                  Ya Carms, I've heard really great things about RIU, I've never been myself though. Picking the resort was one of the hardest things for me - at least they made it nice and easy for you!

                    Yep you've found a great resource for your DW. Riu vallarta looks like a great place. I was interested in that resort as well but we opted for it's neighbor Riu jalisco with the gazebo. The Vallarta is newer and niocer I personally think.

                    I just moved from Edmonton. Is there any snow left? I'm curious.... LOL
