Wedding November! Riu Jalisco

Recommended Posts

If you dont use their photographer you have to pay $500 for using an outside vendor.  The one they use (Aldo Tovar)  looks super though and his package prices are totally decent.  What day is yours?  Mine is Nov 29, soooooooooooooon but not soon enough:)

Hey, my wedding is on November 18th,, so that is reasaonable prices for photography.... right, i am so disallusioned that everything is so cheap... wrong!  hah,

 

My wedding is at 1pm, then the dinner starts at 6:30, dont know what to do with guests between?  I think we will have the toast and pics on the beach, then... i dont know... let everyone loose to go to the bars?  Confused.

Well, the photographers packages start around $800 but if you decide to go with another photographer you need to pay the $500 (which is only a FEE) plus the charges of the outside photographer.  Thus, it is cheaper to use Aldo!  His pics look awesome too so i am excited about it.

 

Are you dead set on having your wedding ceremony that early in the afternoon?  Honestly...I would suggest diong it later in the day if you can.  1pm is the hottest part of the day and that does leave a super long gap for your guests.  They would have to get ready (dresses, hair, makeup) for the ceremony and then they would likely not want to stay in their formal clothes all day in the heat so would go to the beach and or pool and then have to get ready for dinner again. Obviously this is just my opinon......  I am having my cermeony at 4pm, then I am renting the pool bar from 730 to 830 where we will do cocktails, first dance, etc. and then dinner is at 845pm.    Technically yes though...you could just set your guests loose in between:)  It is your special day and you are the boss, lol.

Hello &  welcome4.gif  You will find tons of info on here and lots of helpful advice.  Look under the forum's tab for RIU and under the resorts and Villia's...   I am sure will will find someone who has had all the same thoughts as you... But good luck & happy planning.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
