Riu Help

Recommended Posts

Oops sorry I hit enter too soon...lol. So ya we booked trvel through an agent and wedding through the online wedding website for the Riu. Once we had a confirmed date then we went to the travel agent but we had quite a bit of time until the wedding date. You pretty much have to go through all the steps on the website to see date availability - if it's not available it won't let you select the date or time.

Our photographer was Mango Productions which was part of the package although we just kept with the standard package offering as we had a friend coming that does photography as a hobby so she took most other pics. Mango did do a fantastic job on the pics they did take - I would totally upgrade the pictures if that's something that's important to you.

We also took the standard supper package that's included and it was great. We were seperate from the general population anyhow even though it's says it's semi private. We had it at the Steeakhouse and they had it all set up downstairs so there was no one around other than our party so that was great. Let me tell you the food was FANTASTIC there too....we were so impressed with it.

Anyhow if you have any questions - just let me know. I know how hard it is when you can't find the specific info you are looking for.

I got married at the Santa Fe. I loved it. It was relaxed and alot of fun. If you want you can see my slide show on my photographer website. Its Kelly and Pauls slide show. MySpace.com - The Wedding Photographer - 46 - Male - St Louis, US - www.myspace.com/fotou. I did go with Dreams beacause of pricing and distance to downtown. My guest wanted to party. I dont think you can go wrong with either one. if you go on their website you can see what dates are avaliable.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
