    Hey everybody, just got back from Los Cabos and the wedding was beautiful, coud not ask for a more perfect day.

    If anybody is getting married at the Riu Palace feel free to message me any questions you might have.

    Im just warning you dont trust the safes at the hotel as 3 of our guests had their safes broken into and over a $1000 was stolen in total, so dont bring a lot of cash with you. The hotel would make excuses as to why they would not honor our stolen money, so nobody got their money back even though they tell you its insured.

    Ash*

        Hi Ashleybride2be,

        Did you have legal ceremony or symbolic? I'm getting married there in July. How was the WC to work with? Did you pay for anything extra?

          Wow, I can't believe they broke into safes! That is so awful! I'm glad you warned other brides. Congrats on your wedding.

                Hi ichimiyuki,

                I'm a Sask girl! I just got back from the Riu Palace (married on February 18th!). I had the most beautiful wedding day I could ask for. I rented out the Mexican Terrace and totally recommend it. It was so beautiul and private and we got a lot of compliments on everything!

                  Mrs.Hocky, congrats on your big day. Mind if I ask you a couple of questions. I'm getting married there in July. How was the WC to work with? Where did you get your hair done? Did you just use the decorations that they provided our did you take some down? Also, did you have to pay extra for flowers?

                      Daniella was so good to work with! I had read a lot of bad things about her on here that made me nervous, but she really is good at what she does. She works very long hours can do up to 2 weddings per day, and almost everyday atleast 1. I just tried to not annoy her everyday with e-mails while I was in the planning stages and whatnot. She ended up hugging me at the end of the night!

                      I went to Suzanne Morel's salon. We took a taxi van for the 7 of us (including mothers) and it cost about $20. It only took 5 minutes or so to get there. I totally recommend the salon. I am a hairdresser and am very picky and I loved everyone's hair and makeup. They are very concerned with whether or not you're happy with it and ask you numerous times what they can change. My stylist got mine dead on and I loved it!

                      I brought down some fan favors and programs for the chairs at the ceremony. I also made some favor bags for the reception and that was all that I took. Where will you be having your reception? We booked the Mexican Terrace as a private event ($500) - and everyone complimented us over and over again. It overlooks the Beach and you can see the arches in the background. It's private and beautiful. We did our first dance out there, and the dance with our parents. Afterwards Daniella left us alone (we had it from 8-11) and we had supper and the cakecutting all done by 9:30. We had a dance out there until 11. It was a lot of fun. I'm going to post my review later today.

                      Lastly, yes I did pay more for flowers. I wanted roses, calla lilies, and a few orchids. I only had to pay for the orchids, because the others were included in my package. I also had to pay for the bridesmaids bouquets and I got a few fresh flowers for our cake.

                      Any other questions, feel free to message me. Or e-mail jannel19@hotmail.com
