RIU free wedding -- cost for extra people

Recommended Posts

There is a thread already for this. Have you also downloaded the PDF files from the website? It has the info for free/classic, etc. I do believe if not mistaken that it is a maximum of 50 people or something like that.

I have not found this thread after multiple searches. It is probably hidden in another thread with a different name? If you know which one, please tell.

 

I do not have enough points yet to download anything so if there was a download for this I would not be eligible yet.

If you email the wedding Chadelyn she will give you that information. There is alot of confusion going around some say that if you have more than 20 people you cant get the free package others say you just pay the difference.

I've already sent an email to one of the RIU's and I am awaiting their response. I figured in the meantime, someone somewhere on this site already got this question answered; I still can't find the post that was previously mentioned. It must be hidden in another topic...

If you are referring to the weddings by riu website, they only seem to have 2009 brochures available; the 2010 (when I plan to get married) are not yet available.

Hi- I asked the same question and received this response from the RIU: The Free wedding includes cake and champagne for 20 people- you pay for extra people for those two things. There is no additional per person charge for the free wedding (still cost $350); just the above additional cost of champagne/cake per person. I also think if you have over 30 people, you have to book a private reception? It may be 40 people- there is some cutoff for semi-private reception.

Thanks Jen! I'll try to fill in the holes as soon as I get a response. I read on some other threads that said the cut off was 50 but then they may have been for 2009 packages and not 2010...not too sure.

Okay so I just got an email back from RIU in Dominican Republic that has the following description of the free wedding package for 2010 brides:

 

"Free Wedding Package: Only at the ClubHotel Riu Bachata; available with the booking of

5 rooms. There is no limit on the amount of guests for the Free Package (up to the

maximum capacity), just as long as 80% of them stay at the resort where the wedding will be held."

 

Having said that, in the email I was told I would be informed of the price when I talk to the wedding coordinator at the resort...so a bit of a mystery...I guess we will know for sure when 2010 rolls around and we start seeing what other brides experienced.

 

As for the "maximum capacity" it said lower down in the brochure that it is 60 people. This seemed to apply to any package you go with free or not, but I'll just post what I got send and let the reader decide.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
