Here is a pic of our guestbook table. It had all of the BM's bouquets, my bouquets and the flowers from the arch:

Here's a pic of the table set up in the Flamingo restaurant. We had three tables with 10 to 11 people each. We purchased six centerpieces from them (two for each table) and we brought our own blumeboxes because we initially were going to go to the market to buy flowers, but when we got there DH said to just have them do the flowers. BEST DECISION!

After the wedding since we were there for 7 more days, we kept all of the flowers in our suite and enjoyed them. It was so nice because they were beautiful. Hope this helps!

Has anyone heard from Jessica lately? I've been trying to reach her to firm up a bunch of details but haven't heard back at all. Any suggestions? Also, does anyone know if we need to pick our cake from a specific set of designs or can we bring a picture?

Hi there! I got married at the Riu Jalisco on Wednesday, and Jessica was my wedding coordinator too. She is really, really busy at the moment - there were 2 weddings at the Jalisco when we were there, and a tonne at the Vallarta.

 

You pick the cake from a bunch of designs in a book of photos she has. Does that help?

 

One warning I would like to mention, is that the bill will be higher than you think, so just allow for that. It has something to do with how the RIU converts between US dollars and pesos. Ours was over $1000 US more than the bill showed.

Thanks, Ava!
Wow! $1000 more? Do you remember which package you selected? On their website they give prices in US dollars so it seems weird that it would be so much more expensive.

Did you have to bring a cake knife and server or did they provide that?

Also, did you get your hair done at the spa?

Thanks for all your help!

Hi there!

 

We had the Royal package - the issue is that they actually charge in Pesos, not US dollars, and the US dollar is currently not 10:1 with the Peso, like they put on their website, more like 12.5:1.

 

We brought a cake knife, but they provided everything else. They would provide a cake knife too if needed.

 

I did get my hair done at the Renova spa, and although I have pretty long hair, by their standards it was only medium length. They did a great job - they do not however speak any English, so try and bring a picture of what you want.

Hello!

Not yet, but I will soon hopefully. We had a 3 tier included in our package, as we had 40 people. I do know the cake was commented on by everyone as being beautiful, but it really was for ceremonial purposes - it didn't taste great. There were 4 flavour options - chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and coffee. They all came with buttercream icing. The flowers were $6 a flower on the cake.

Hope that helps!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
