    Hey Lisa...I was thinking about you the other day. I haven't heard from you in a while!!
    I know...I'm absolutely terrible. I don't have my review written yet & I really have to get it done soon. One, I'm not very good at summarizes, so it's coming out VERY long. I have one paragraph on our departure & it's seriously almost half a page in Word!! I don't want to leave anything out, but I feel I'm being too wordy too! Oh boy. Hopefully I can get it done soon - you're not the only one bugging me for it!

    Oh...and since this is my thread & I can post anything I want, I was wondering if the offer was still there to help me edit some of my pics?? I think you had offered previously in my "I'm fuming" thread! I'm not super happy with my pics & I think with a bit of editing (from someone other than me who doesn't really have a clue what I'm doing!) they could be a lot better. Do you mind?? If you're busy with your wedding plans & life I totally understand, but thought I would ask!! I think I'm going to start a thread asking for help anyway, but thought I would jump the gun here!! :)

      Hi Bachata Bride,

      I am realy anxious to see your review as well. I am getting married there next month on the 14th. I am so nervous about the reception part of it. I want it to look nice. I've been asking Maria alot of questions and if she can do more for me to make the reception look nicer. So far she hasn't be able too. So am very scared. How was your reception?

        Reception?? The dinner part??
        It was very nice...nothing fancy.
        We shared the steakhouse with another wedding - but they used dividers so that we were separated.
        As for the "party" part, we didn't do anything. We just all went to the disco at the Mambo (or Merengue...I'm not sure!)

          i can probably find some time to help out. i don't know how we'd go about it tho ... i would probably need your high-resolution photos on disc mailed to me, and if you have any ideas of what you'd like done to some of the pics let me know. oh and definitely send a COPY of your disc! you don't want to get your pics lost in the mail! i will send you a PM with my mailing address.

              Hi Bachata Bride,

              Thanks for repsonding back. I was wondering about both for the dinner was it set up nice? Am guessing there was no table clothes and seat covers and center pieces? Then for the party do you know if you can rent the pool side bar and do a party there? I read some other brides did that at other Riu's. Hope to hear from you soon.

                I'm not sure about the "after dinner options" - I didn't look into any of them. I know that Sara (saraece) had an ipod docking station & just stayed at the restaurant. The pool isn't open after 7 so I don't think you can rent the bar there as the entire area is kind of shut down.
                Yes...there were table clothes & they use the flowers from your ceremony as the centerpieces. No seat covers though.

                  I am having the same worries as you... I did although find a lady who does private reception parties out there if Maria can't give me any more info...

                    i hope Maria is able to ease some of your worries, just remember they are very busy and hard working. They put on 2-3 weddings a day as well as meet with all the couples a head of time. Sunday is there only day off so if they don't get back to you right away that might be why. I felt that they were very acomodating and can probably help you with most of your requests. They can get you more flowers for decoration at a cost, but as far as other decor items you may want to bring what you want. I went with what they gave me and was happy , nothing too fancy but that is what I wanted.
