    Hey Ladies,

    This isnt quite a review yet. I will post one soon. But I did want to put up here some thoughts.

    My "husband" (!!!!! so cool to put!!!!) and I just came home from The Bahamas Nov 28th. We stayed at the Riu on Paradise Island. Wow! It was so nice. Dont take to heart what people have said on Trip Advisor. It is super clean, the staff is really friendly and go out of their way to do things for the guests, the food is soooo good! and the rooms are fantastic. We had a wonderful week there and are planning to go back just the 2 of us in 2011 sometime.

    So those of you just thinking about it... but not to sure, you should try it. They are wonderful and the wedding planner Debbie is awesome too.

     

    I will post a whole review/planning thread soon. Just waiting for my photos....

            Hello, CONGRATS ON THE WEDDING!!! I am getting married at the Riu paradise in the bahamas in July 2011. I would like to ask you a few questions if that is okay? Did you get married on the beach or ocean view terrace? If you got married on the beach were there strangers watching and was it distracting? Did you have an arch? What flowers did you choose? What resturant did you eat at and was it good? Best club to go to and what kind of music? thank you,

            Tiffani

                Congrats on your wedding! I'm new on this website & this is my first post... I recently got engaged & we're planning our wedding in Bahamas... We stayed at Riu at Cancun & liked it a lot. So we're thinking about having a wedding in Riu at Bahama. Due to our budget, we are gonna get married during hurricane season. When is a good time to go? Is Sept to Nov okay? What package is good @ Riu? The website said "semi-private" reception. How was your reception? Any advices will be appreciated. Thanks, Tina

                  Tina -I dunno much about Riu but in sept - nov it's still warm to us...the cheapest time to there as far as plane tickets n hotel stay is mid august-mid october because mostly everything shuts down

                    Thank you Dominiqueamber! I'm debating between Cancun, Bahamas & Hawaii now. I'm more confused each day ;-) This is harder than I anticipated. I just want a wedding on the beach. *Sigh*
