Ladies, I had the most exciting thing ever happen to me this week!  I got a call that I was one of 2 finalists in a Wedding Bells contest.  There were 7,611 entrants and my name was one of the two drawn!  We had to go head to head in a cake dive to see who would win a $35k wedding!  So funny to watch:

Now, instead of a a low-key cocktail reception upon our return, we'll be having an amazing full wedding reception :)  My luck definitely peaked yesterday LOL.

 

Just wanted to share my excitement with you!! smile159.gif

 

Have a great weekend,

Katie

Hey girls I'm new on this site but I'm getting married Nov. 9th, 2010 at the Palace on the beach at 5:30, free cocktail hour at the lobby bar, dinner at the Steakhouse and then renting Pacha out till 11 when it opens with 45 guest booked!  I'm so excited it's only 5 weeks away!!!!

 I've been to the Riu Palace before w/ my fiance and while we were there we said if we ever get married we're getting married here!!  It was amazing! 

 

So one thing that we're doing for our guests as kinda an OOT present is ordering 16oz stadium cups that we personalized w/ our colors, a palm tree, names and date (they have seashells, flip flops...).  All Riu veterans bring their own cups b/c they serve drinks in small little juice cups.  When we were there before a wedding party had them and it was so cute, plus everyone at the pool/bars all new you were party of the wedding!  We're going to stuff ours w/ our welcome letter and crystal light/ propel singles packets!

100 cups-$90

50 cups-$72

Let me know if anyone has any ideas/tips!!!!

Sorry Lolita, work got crazy and I haven't been on here forever! I am doing the private reception and picking at least 2 dishes for the guests to choose from...probably beef or chicken. I need to see how flexible they are on that and on the menu's as some sounds AMAZING but others not so much!

I don't know what the food is like personally but i have heard they have very good food, i heard the steakhouse is a little better thu.

 

Ok ladies, those having the private reception, are you going to select a few dishes for the guests to choose from or are you going to just have everyone choose whatever they want from the menu???

 

And my bridal party isn't that big it'll be about 6 BM and 5 GM and 2 RB (ring bearers).

The wedding group that had them when we were there before was known as "THE Wedding" with everyone at the pool/bars...it made it really fun to be like ohhh your w/ THE wedding plus they were a super fun cool group!  Just a fun kinda way to make all your guest stand out for the week!
