      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!

                    Hope you don't mind if I watch your ceremony from the peanut gallery! We should definitely keep and eye out for each other!
