    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.

                Hey Ava do you have pictures of your cake? Do you remember price ranges?

                  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!

                    Another thing to note, is as the other brides have said - the flowers at the RIU are GORGEOUS!
