    I will definitely post more pictures. Just have to find them since I recently moved The wedding was at 5pm and I did use the hotel for my hair. Everyone else did their own. I didn't have any idea what I wanted to do with my hair so I picked something out of one of the books the hotel salon had. I think she did a good job. There were so many bobby pins holding it up!

      Hi I'm thinking about using Cecilia Dumas as well. Can you give me a little more information about what you thought of her and her work?

          Hi amy,


          thanks for your honest review. I am recently engaged and have been to the Riu Las Americas before. We are so lost, Amy. We keep hopping back and forth between mexico, jamaica, punta cana. I'm pretty flexible (i just want to get married somewhere pretty!!!) but my fiance is so worried about everything: will they be able to seat us, will we have a decent wedding reception (we are expecting only about 20 ppl), will we be able to do the daddy daughter dance, first dance, etc.), are we wasting money, will we run in to silly 19 year old spring breakers, etc. we are planning to get married over spring break 2011 (i work in a school :(   )...


          you gave such a thurough review, i'm not even sure what my question is....i guess...what would you have done differently--at the same resort? had the disco for a bit? i worry because with a party so small, i worry it will feel like a house party, and people don't typically dance at house parties, you know? i worry daddy daughter and first dance will be too small in numbers to not be awkward. it sounds like the major issues you had were surrounding your personal photographer and the Riu wedding coordinator. we would use "their" photog and also we have a friend coming down for the ceremony who just happens to be a professional wedding photographer, shh. so we are hoping that won't be too much of an issue.


          did you do a civil/religious ceremony or a spiritual one? was it legally binding? did you  guys have to do blood tests? if so, what was that expereince like? my fiance is pretty freaked out about that part. the whole giving blood in a foreign country thing. I'm all for the spiritual wedding. any thoughts?


          i guess just: any advice would be so helpful.

                    Hi! My name is Stacey and i am getting married on the 17th sep this year at the rui palace las americas! Your posts have been very helpful! You mentioned Cecilia Dumas as your photographer? Did the hotel find the photographer for you or did you find her by yourself? I have been quoted $550 by hotel for 72 photos of wedding. Could you please tell me how to contact your photographer, your photos are gorgeous! We are also looking to have our meal at El Romero, did everything go as planned for you? Starting to get nervous now!! Thanks, Stacey
