Hey girls! I'm not getting married at Riu Santa Fe but took a group of 15 there last April. This place made us decide to have a DW. The resort was great with your typical Mexico AI service. Make friends with the bartenders and they will hook you up and make your group have a great time.

 

My only warning is that the wedding we saw was right in front of the infinity pool with the hot tubs and swim up bar. The wedding was around 4 pm and the whole wedding party had to walk right by the pool to get to the ceremony. When the bride walked by all the drunken guests in the pool started "singing/screaming" You've Lost That Loving Feeling to her. This continued until she made it down the stairs and to the aisle runner. The bride/groom and younger people there thought it was funny, but the mother of the bride and older folks were appalled. Personally, we are now incorporating this song into our ceremony. But, for those more serious brides make sure you walk around the property the day before so you minimize those unexpected surprises.

 

Good luck planning and you picked a great place to get married :)

Hey guys, I am planning my wedding at the Riu Santa Fe 2.6.10. For those of who you had the ceremony on the beach, did you use an aisle runner? I am just trying to figure out what decorations for the ceremony I will need, that are not included. Thanks!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
