Late Reception Dinner at Riu Palace RM

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
