I've been trying to research a ton of resorts this weekend and the Riu resorts seem nice and affordable. I don't know why I'm stressing about finding a location...I have another 2 years! Does anyone have experiences to share about the Riu resorts, particulary the Riu Palace? I was also looking into the Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort, if anyone has info on that one. Thanks!

Hi Cassondra:

Which Riu Palace are you thinking about? There is the new Riu Palace Punta Cana and the Riu Palace Macao. I am getting married at the Riu Palace Macao on July 12/07. I did a ton of research before booking and would love to help answer any of your questions about the Rius.

I am getting married in Cabo however I stayed at the Riu Palace Punta Cana in December 2005. It was absolutely beautiful. The grounds were not quite as full as the other resorts but it had just opened. I am sure it is more lush now.

 

Everyone at the resort was great. The service, food, activities, and bars were all great. You can also use the amenities at the other sister properties when you stay at the Palace. The Carribean Street Party night was cool too.

 

When you first walk in to the resort you will be blown away be the lobby. It is gorgeous. I did not see any weddings when I was there but the beaches and gazebo are very nice.

 

Let me know if you have any questions about the resort. My fiance and I had a blast!

What was the deciding factor for you? I think that they all sound great!

I choose Cabo over Punta Cana for my wedding due to the location and close proximity to Texas and also becuase of the climate. I do not do well in humidity and it is very humid in Punta Cana. Cabo is much dryer. Other than that I may have chosen Punta Cana. It is so beautiful.

    • 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.
