Riu Palace Brides Post Here!!!

Recommended Posts

Those cups are a great idea!  Another option is to do coffee mug type glasses that act somewhat like a thermos to keep the drinks cold.  We did that for my mom's destination wedding a couple years back and they were also a hit.  However, I really like how your cups can be customized!  I want the purple ones :)  Nice find!

The only thing I know is im getting married at 2 pm (yikes) on the beach. The brides maid dresses are fushia pink..which I will find a picture and attach a link asap. Here is the link to my wedding dress:

But I will be adding a fushia pink sash under the bust with rhinestones on it. So I match the girls and it gives a little pizaz.

I will keep you updated when I get more information. I have tons...just not enough time to post:)

Happy Planningcheer2.gif

Hi All,

 

I am a RIU Palace, Cabo San Lucas, bride to be.  I have learned so much from all of you I just wanted to pop in and say Thank You.  We are doing the symbolic ceremony Oct., 29, 1011.  That's about all I know too.  After reading these posts I see I have a lot of planning/ shopping to do and I had better get on it!

So when I first booked my wedding last January the WC was Danielle, and then it was Monse and now I just got an email from Paola Flores (I think she books all the Riu Mexican weddings) that the new WC is Kai Lara???  Has anyone met her???  I'm getting married in 25 days and getting kind of nervous!

Hi fellow RP brides,

 

I was coming on to write a similar question as well.  Monse was AMAZING but now she is gone.  I've sent/forwarded 3 emails to Kaiulani (I believe that is her name) over the past 2.5 weeks and haven't received a response.  I have only ever received one email reply from her when she first started.  She is making me very frustrated.  I miss Monse sad.gif

I don't blame you!  However, I emailed Paola (the person I was first in contact with when booking the wedding) and told her Kaiulani has not been returning my emails and that our whole forum is filled with fellow brides complaining about the same thing, and she responded apologizing and saying she'd look into it and make sure I got my replies.  So, hopefully she'll get on Kaiulani... if you don't get a reply by tomorrow, try emailing the person that you booked your wedding date with!

 

Hope this helps!

Katie

Hello Ladies,

So I had to message you all to tell you that Kaiulani did get back to me last night- at like 8pm too. So she must be putting in some later hours now. I still dont have alot of questions answered but at least I know now that there is someone working on everything- since we leave in less then 20 days.

 

Just wondering what you ladies might be doing for guest favors? Im stuck and dont know what to do, I really like the idea of thermal mugs or something- but that can get pricey.

 

Monique

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
