Does anyone have any past experience there Or know of any other info that could help me out with the Riu?
    A lot of resort planners are so busy that they get back to you in order of preference. I didn't want to keep bothering my coordinator- especially when we were a year away from the wedding so I send periodic emails with list of questions( maybe once a month- every other month). I've been doing research about DW's and have looked at albums of couples who have had their wedding at my resort. I've just been compiling my ideas and sent an email with some of my requests for the first time last week( wedding is now 9 months away) to our coordinator.

    So even though you may not get a quick response or things won't be finalized until 1-2 months before, you can still touch base with her periodically if you have any concerns or questions.

    BTW, when is your wedding? I'm also getting married in Aruba next summer- July 23. My FI and I have also never been to the island. We will be there for the first time for our wedding!

          I am also looking into various resorts in Aruba for July 2012... I think our top choices are the Riu Palace or the Renaissance....  Any tips?

              We were not there for a wedding just vacation however we saw three different ones while we were there.  We actually choose to get married at the Riu Ochos Rios because we loved our visit to the Riu Palace so much
