      I LOVE the cake topper. How exciting!!! Yea I don't know what I am going to do about the cake issue. I have heard the Riu wedding cakes are not very good at all. How much are diva desserts asking for their wedding cakes?

        Hello Girls,

        I'm planning on June 12,2010 and I can't wait. Sjfreimark I noticed Kimmy2009sent you the package prices for 2009 I have the ones for 2010 if you would like. Are your dates confirmed yet? If so how? I went on the Riu website to confirm my date (because I got the reservation code to confirm my date) and it asked for room information but booking for June 2010 won't begin until June 2009. One other thing has anyone had any concerns about the recent violence that has been on the news lately about Mexico, I'm getting grief from the future Mother-In-Law (MIL?).

        Congrats to you girls

          Hi wedding0610!! I have been getting a few concerns as well about Mexico's safety. Here's the thing.....all of this violence is happening on the US/Mexico border. Cabo San Lucas is so americanized too! I know it's a little much when you have family or future family coming at you with concerns. I have recently realized that it's important to do what YOU and your FIANCE want to do. You are going to have danger wherever you go. Just remind your guests that it is a foreign country and you ALWAYS need to take the necessary precautions.
          I haven't confirmed my dates yet. I have 90 days and I have been e-mailing Daniella to check and re-check that I will get what I want before I completely confirm. If you can't confirm just e-mail Daniella and she could probably help you. That would be great if you could send me the dates for the 2010 stuff. I have the price of the Royal Package (40 people or less). I have been thinking a lot and I think I am going to make my own bouquet. It will save tons of money and I don't really want to use the resorts flowers because I don't think they will be my colors. My colors are going to be pink and brown. I was thinking having pink roses and wrap them with brown ribbon or whatever it is they use to wrap the flowers. Not sure what they are called. What are you doing for the reception, cocktail hour, etc.?

              Kimmy these are so helpful! Thank you! We're getting married in March 2010 and I'd like to start getting an idea of a budget so the extras cost are useful to have in mind..

              I also looked into the cake toppers site - they're gorgeous! I love the color selection of all the crystals. Your cake will look amazing!

              Happy planning! :)

                  Ive been reading several posts and apparently the wedding cake offered by the hotel -- Riu Palace Riveria Maya isnt tasty at all.

                  Kimmy, Melinda, wedding0610, sjfreimark--do you know if we can bring in out own cake from outside vendor? Ive read of good things re: Turtle Bay Cafe Bakery.

                    Hi Msbettybernier! I think you can bring your own cake put I am not sure. You might want to contact Daniella about that one. I think I am just going to have the cake from the hotel. I have heard it's pretty good. Plus, I have heard that everyone is usually to drunk at that time to even care about cake!! :)

                      I received the pricing for 2010 from Daniela. I will post for those interested. I was wondering if you have a reception at one of the restaurants, is there a dance floor or is that something you would have to do for a private reception.
