Reception only at the ROR??
Posted 30 April 2009 - 04:42 PM
My problem is that the Riu isn't actually answering my questions directly, they tend to go around my questions...I have emailed the Riu and their response was that I would still have to buy a wedding package (preferably the Caprice package as I have approximately 50-60 guests) but do not have to have the wedding ceremony at the Riu. The only problem is they won't authorize any wedding coordinators other than the Riu wedding coordinator at the resort.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do? I would like to hold my reception at the resort as I would like to keep my costs down...my ceremony is already going to cost me about $5000 to have it offsite, not even including my dinner for out guests!! LOL
Any suggestions are welcome!

Good luck with your decisions...sorry I'm not much help...

The only thing that's been holding me back is what to do about the reception and where to hold it. Do you mind me asking where you have decided to hold your reception offsite and is TWJ also taking care of that for you?

You could totally do that. If you only wanted the reception at ROR, just book it like a private event.. realistically, you could have any celebration you wanted there! (right?)

Maureen, does Evita's allow offsite wedding coordinators or am I mixing that up with The Ruins? I think one of them charges some kind of fee for using an outside vendor?

Sorry to go on and on but these two ladies really are great. Anyone who chooses them will not regret it.

Has anyone used both TWJ and Evita's at the same time, one for the ceremony and one for the reception or is that too much? The reason TWJ seems like a lot is because they actually provide a lot of the things you need, like flowers, decorations, transportation and even includes a mini reception after the ceremony (with cake and drinks). But maybe I don't need a cake and a mini reception if we're planning on having a full reception dinner afterwards, anyways.
However, still worried about what to do with the reception part because we need to feed our guests dinner!! LOL
I figured that even if we spend about $5000 for each vendor, it will still be half the price that we would be paying to have it here at home.
