Riu Santa Fe Brides, Post Here!

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys! Crazy so many of you there at the same time! I just got some answers back from Nelly, thought i would share them for other brides who may have the same ones. I have to agree, Nelly is awesome, much faster at getting back, looking forward to working with her.

 

What will the seating arrangement be for 61 ppl so I can make a seating chart? Because of the lay-out of the restaurant you only can have tables of 10 or 12 people, and a head table if you want

 

How long will the photographer be there for? It depend of the package you choose.

 

When do i select flowers/cake. When you arrive.

 

When will we do the rehearsal ( can we do it Wednesday around lunch time - we will leave for the sunset cruise at 3:00) The rehearsals we make them in the morning like 9 or 10am,

 

What colour chair back colours do you have? The fabric is in white and the bows are in silver, gold and purple.

 

What time will you set up the ceremony location, as my family would like to add a few things Usually 3 hours before the cermenony

 

Are there any other weddings that day yet? So far you are the only.

 

I will be supplying my own minister – we will not require one – as previsouly agreed, there will be no charge for the free wedding package, Yes, there won't be charge for the minister.

Nelly did our wedding in Jan. because Erika was sick, and she did an amazing job. It far exceded our expectations for the package we had chose. So I am sure that you will be very happy with her.

Carly,

That is a beautiful dress! I have not been shopping yet, but I am excited that we may also pick the Rui to get married at. They did not have my first date, so we had to pick another. Is the photographer from the hotel or someone else in Cabo.

 

Thanks Beverly

So ... quick question ...

 

I know it is up for debate whether outside vendors are or are not allowed on site, with or without a day pass ... confusing and annoying - I had emailed Nelly for a list of prices for "extras" so as to work them into the budget. I don't see anything on here about a violinist? Has anyone gotten married at the Santa Fe and had live music, other than mariachi, which I see on the listhuh.gif?

 

Thanks !!!!

Can anyone tell me how early I should contact the wedding coordinator at the Riu? My date is about six months away and haven't had any contact with her. Is it too soon to initiate contact? Just wondering if I do contact her if she will tell me to hold off on things... Thanks in advance for any advice you can give me.

hi christine,

 

we didn't hear from the wc until about 2 1/2 months prior because we'd heard they had a diff wc. when we'd emailed them before that, they said not to worry, they'd contact us, but the email i've been in contact with is <weddings.loscabos01@riu.com>. once we got in contact with nelly, she has been great about getting back to us.

 

hope that helps some!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
