    hey there, does anyone have pics of the flower and arch/gazebo options available? I am really curious to see what is offered with the packages.

      I've heard horror stories about communicating with Chandlyn (wedding coordinator @ Riu), but I heard back in her in 6 days after I emailed her. Here's my tip - be nice to her!!! (rocket science, I know!!!)

      I sent her a thank you follow-up email after she changed some things for me, and she immediately replied thanking me for my thank you. Kindness goes a long way!!

        Same here. I have emailed her a few times and each time I heard back from her within 48 hours. She has sent me everything I have asked for.

                Hello beautiful ladies,

                I was wondering if the Plantation has room for dancing or is it just dinner? I would like to know if I have to rent the disco or not.

                  I am wondering the same thing. I have booked the plantation for dinner. I have 60 guests going so far and have no idea of menu options or any options for that matter! hehehehe I have emailed Carolyn but for some reason she never gets my emails!!

                    Hey girls,

                    I am so happy we are all on this together! I'll tell you all of my plans...
                    I am getting married on Friday, May 16, 2008 at noon on the beach at the RIU. I have about 80 guests coming and 8(!) bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen, 2 ringbears and no flower girls (all nephews and no nieces). I have NO IDEA what I'm doing afterwards yet. I was planning on a reception, but I am hearing now that the earliest possible time for a reception is 6:30. So my question is what do my guests do between the hours of 1:00 and 6:00? I don't know what else the resort offers in way of a party or luncheon (nothing from what I've heard). I haven't booked the reception yet b/c Chandlyn has not gotten back to me. I emailed her a few weeks back and she said they don't plan weddings til 2 months beforehand!!! Then I wrote back a few days ago asking if I could at least reserve a reception venue and haven't heard anything yet. Any ideas??

                    As for the rest of my plans, I am thinking of doing program fans for the guests. For their welcome bags: koozies, cups, maybe some cards/dice, maybe suntan lotion/aleve/lip balm. I'm not 100% sure yet.

                    I have my dress. It is tea length and strapless. I'm still working on the bridesmaids dresses.

                    I am also on a forum on brides.com and a girl there sent me the photography package info and the menus. I will try to post them here asap.

                    Talk to you all soon!
