    Hi there,

    I'm STILL trying to figure out the place I want to stay and have the wedding. I love the ROYAL but really, it's just more money then I want to spend! I like the Riu Palace Riviera Maya, but I'm having some worries about thier reception dinners... and I've also been looking at the Barcelo Tropical.

    Can I get some feedback from people that have had a wedding at the Riu Palace RM and what they did between the wedding and the reception dinner?

    To me it seems like there aren't many choices to have the dinner at (no beach or poolside - just the restaurants) and if you have a group over 27, then you have to have the second seating which isn't until after 8:30! so if the wedding is at 3...then what are the guests and us after pics are done to do until dinner? that is a really long time don't you think??

    And also can I get some feedback on the Barcelo? I like the Riu Palace because it seems more high end and I like the full service (including drink service at the beach - lol) Do you think we would get the same service at Barcelo? They seem to have more options for the wedding...?

    Thanks everyone! I'm been trying to research things since November and still haven't made up my mind! I just want to get the location picked now and move on to other things...lol

      I am having my wedding at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya, I was a little concerned at first about the space between the wedding and the reception but I have seen many people on this website talk about it and it seems to be fine. Most people just have cocktail and H'orderves in between. You will also have to go for pictures anyway so I'm sure that guests can entertain themselves too if you don't want to spens more money on the cocktail intermission.
