Surprise, surprise ....not sure if you are referring to the one in Cabo but they seem to be coming up with all sorts of new rules!! All along I have been trying to decide between the Riu and Dreams ... I thought I had finally decided on the Riu but now am really reconsidering.......

The Riu does have a lot of stipulations - I've posted a thread on this with the wedding policies that they have. My impression from hearing about Dreams is that you have more options in terms of bringing in outside vendors and I think they only do one wedding per day only as opposed to the Riu that have a max of 3 wedding.

 

I was initially going to go with Dreams but in terms of travel/accommodations cost for my guests, it is a few hundred dollars more expensive... so that was why we decided on the Riu.

 

Also, we have many friends who have travelled to the resort and LOVED it - and I have some picky friends wink.gif lol Also, a friend of mine JUST got married at the Riu Palace this past Friday and raved about it. The photographers we are hiring also did a wedding at the Riu this past March and also raved about the resort.

 

But on the flip side, I hear very good things about the Dreams as well.

 

I guess it depends on how much flexibility you want. Riu has a policy that 80% of your guests have to stay at the hotel......

 

good luck with your decision!

I am a bonfire person. Heck, our back yard has a 15' roman circle with a firepit in the center of it. I do see why the Riu doesn't have bonfires though. When I was there last November for a site inspection it was soooo windy. I couldn't see how you could have a fire safely. Even if you had a grill cover for it there's always sparks and it would light up anything made of straw. In Mexico that's basically everything! There are so many great things at the Riu that I really don't think you'll miss one. I know we didn't!

Peaches, which photographers did you hire for your wedding? I'm getting married at Riu Palace too and I'm deciding who to book.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
