Riu Palace Cabo RECEPTION!

Recommended Posts

Hi to all previews or upcoming Riu Palace Brides,

 

Any suggestions whether to use a Mariachi band or DJ for the reception at Riu Palace Cabo?

 

Will they allow you to do half and half?

 

 

Thanks!!! Appreciate any advice as their isn't much information and reviews about this.

You can definitely do half and half. We will be having he mariachi band for the ceremony and we're bringing our own iPod for the reception. It all depends on what you want to pay for.

I want to say $600 something. I am looking at having mariachi's play during the cocktail hour and just have an i pod during the reception.

I'm going to do the same thing - either mariarchi or classical live music during the ceremony and bringing an ipod for the reception (I highly suggest Cafe Del Mar music for during the dinner!).  According to the 2010 pricing they sent me (and they do mention they expect it to go up for 2011):

 

Mariachi per 45 min (10 persons) $600.00 usd
Trio Mariachi (03 persons) $400 usd

 

Is anyone else renting out private space for the dinner?  And where are you holding your cermonies?

I'm renting out the Mexican Terrace for the reception and having the ceremony at the San Jose gazebo.

Hi Lolita29,

 

Did they allow you to book/rent the terrace already?  Reason I ask is I was told by my travel agent that these details are finalized after they have the numbers for your wedding (a few months before your wedding date).

 

We're booked at the Palace for Feb 18, 2011, I noticed your wedding day is in May 2011.  Let us know!

Yea, i got in touch with the wedding coordinator right away and got the terrace reserved. You should contact the resort as soon as you can before it's too late and the terrace is no longer available.

I think we're going to do our first dance during the cocktail hour. As for speeches that will be during dinner at the restaurant. And my uncle is actually a DJ so he MC all the party's lol .

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
