Hi!

 

We're getting married and the Riu Palace in March 2010 and we got the following information in regard to policies at the resort:

 

SEMIPRIVATE EVENTS CAN NOT HAVE DJ INSIDE THE RESTAURANT this only can be

possible at private events. Because you are sharing the location with other people & this disturb their dinner. Terrace of the restaurant as private event only can be DJ package #1.

 

Now I'm worried because I think I read you need a certain amount of guests to be able to close down the restaurants for a private eventhuh.gif

 

Anyone else came across this issue??

 

Thanks! :)

My daughter is thinking about getting married at the Riu Palace in May 2010. She is wanting to have her wedding on the terrace for a few reasons: First, when we were at the riu Jalisco in Puerto Vallarta we made resevatioons at one of the restaurants for dinner and were very suprised to be seated in the full capacity restaurant next to a wedding party. It was hot, crowded and not at all special. the bride and her guests were pretty treated like the rest of the patrons no dance floor no Dj. Just a table that was decorated to looked like a wedding table. I have read the stipulations at the Riu that say no Dj's are permitted in the restaurant;only on the terrace. Hope this helps.

I read that last night. I am rather concerned because why do they have a package that includes dinner, but does not allow a DJ or anything? We are going down there next month to check things out. We might do the semi private dinner and then rent the disco from 8-11. At least that way for $500 extra you get open bar and a DJ.

    • 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.
