Haha I totally went MIA, so sorry! It's nice to see so many other Riu brides have joined in on the fun!
We're having a private reception at the Mexican Restaurant and I didn't know that we were allowed to offer set menus instead of the regular menu. I'd want to see the menu in advance if I were to narrow it down to a set menu... I wonder if they'll send a copy to us?
My wedding is at 5 and I plan to hold a cocktail session between the photos and the reception. I'd like it to start at some point while we're doing our photos, so people don't have to wander around on their own for too long... I haven't looked into this at all yet, but I would like to ask Monse about my options soon.
"gettingmarried" - I would LOVE to hear more about your wedding and the week at Riu Palace. I'm so glad things went smoothly for you and that Monse pulled through. Monse has been excellent so far, so I'm not surprised, but it is still very reassuring to hear you say this!
I'm not doing a TTD session since I'll be wearing my dress again at my post-wedding reception. But, I do love those pictures!
I'm not going to the resort before the wedding, but I'm not kidding when I say I have 9 people coming to my wedding who have been at Riu Palace Cabo within the past 2 years - 4 people who have been at the resort for a wedding before, and 7 people who stayed at the resort for a vacation last year (and at different times of year). I've also run into 3 people who have been to a wedding there and everyone just loves it (it has been so weird, people ask where I'm getting married and then they tell me "my daughter got married there!", etc. I find it so strange because I had never even heard of it before finding it in my destination search!). Anyways, my point is that every single person has raved about Riu Palace, so we feel confident in our choice to go there.
I'm sure all of our weddings will be magical and the whole week will be a blast
