    Hello my name is Beatrice Bocean and I will be getting married at the Riu Palace in October of this year. I am very excited...just started working with my wedding planner and already there are so many decisions that need to be made: location of ceremony, reception dinner, along with lots of other things like photographer, where to get my hair and makeup done..etc.... This is such an exciting time and i have heard nothing but good things about Riu. I hope of get more insight and advice from couples that have already been through the whole destination wedding experience.

      Hi Beatrice...My name is Crystal (Crys) I am also getting married at this resort in September of 2011. I would love to share some insight with each other on things to know...helpful tips for things to look after regarding anything and everything needed to make each of our days special.

       

      How is your planning going so far?  My first headache is planning the accomodations and traveling for all the guests.  Now that is loads of fun

        Hello there....the planning is going good so far. We just booked the rehearsal dinner and  also the reception dinner. I have a wedding checklist that i have to fill out in the next couple of weeks and send to the wedding planner such as the details ( flowers, cake, music, if i want a band....etc).

          Hi,

           

          Where are people getting this wedding check list from? The wedding planner.. do they just send one or should I request it?

          Seems some of the brides here are more ahead of the game then others and I for one feel so behind...I so appreciate the tips your willing to share

            Hello there. I received the wedding checklist from the wedding planner. As soon as i started emailing with her in the first week she sent me the checklist. I did not need to request it.....that is their procedure.

              Hey Beatrice,

              I emailed Mina at the resort and she forward so much information I am feeling a bit overwhelmed.

               

              I was wondering ...Did they tell you the following regarding your birth certificates:

              Birth Certificate (Includes Parental Information) These will need to be certified copy and translated by an approved translator. Contact your nearest Mexican Consulate or Mexican Embassy for details about certification.

               

              On the bright side we have confirmed the San Jose gazebo for the ceremony.

                I have not heard that information about the birth certificates...we are getting our marriage license here in Chicago and then having a symbolic ceremony in Cabo at the Riu Palace also in the gazebo location. But i might of overlooked that detail....are you also doing the same through the civil process all there in Mexico?

                  Meaning are you just having a symbolic ceremony or a civil one?

                    They told me the same information with the birth certificate! Getting a civil ceremony. I wouldn't think symbolic ceremony would require that!

                      We are having a legal wedding there.  Just didn't realize that they would need us to have our B cert. translated into Spanish before we get there.  But I guess it does make sense now that I think more about it.

                       

                      Have either of you decided on your location for the ceremony or dinner?
