Riu Palace Punta Cana 2012

Recommended Posts

Annaru we are getting married on April 14th. I am excited to see you there, are you having a lot of guests attend? We have invited like 60 so far, 12 have booked and are confirmed. I am just now thinking of colors, the wedding coordinating at the Palace and I have been emailing back and forth because I had a thousand questions and she asked me for the color scheme so they can make sure they have it, any thoughts ladies??

Hi there!!!

I'm Casey and my hubby to be and I are tying the knot at the Riu on October 22,2011. They claim our wedding is "free" if we stay more than 5 days (which we are). Do you know anything about that? How did you find your photographer? Do they offer one from the resort? We were hoping to get there and not spend much money.... any approx guess on how much?

Did you have your hair done or did you do it yourself? My hairdresser here in Colorado says they do great hair there, but was curious as to what you know about that? I wasn't nervous until we hit the 60 day mark........ now I am getting VERY nervous!!!!

Hello ladies,

 

SO I am getting married at the Riu Palace Punta Cana on October 22,2011........ YES, less than two months away!! I am starting to get extremely nervous.... I am excited about the resort, but have only heard from them once and that was to confirm our cermony time and date!!

 

Any ideas on something cute or different to put in welcome bags? I am doing chapstick, sunscreen, water bottles (personlized), but due to the fact it is all inclusive snacks seem kind of silly.....

 

The nerves are really starting to kick in.....

 

Casey

kelelie, how often do you email the WC? who are you dealing with? They take like a week to get back to me :-( I don't mind but I would like if they got back to me faster haha Probably bc I keep nagging them about my "private" reception. I just don't understand why I can't book it NOW!! I want to pay them the money and have the peace of mind that everything is taken care of!

Is anyone else starting to get worried about the negative reviews on tripadvisor? I know people on tripadvisor can be a little too picky and critical but every review I see says the rooms are damp and even the sheets are damp wacko.gif

Kristen I wouldnt worry about that. U can't control everything. When I stayed in may things were fine. I'm starting to worry about my catholic ceremony and it taking 2 months for my marriage certificate to get mailed to me. That's a long time! I was excited to change my name as soon as I got back :-(

I know what you mean about it taking two months, I've even seen some brides say theirs took longer.  I know I can't wait to change my last name! :)  I think we are going to do a symbolic ceremony down there and get married legally at the justice of peace right before we go down and just not tell anyone.  I've seen many brides say this was easier but I  also kina of wished and wanted it to be done legally down there

The brides that said it took longer were they new post or old ones. I saw some but they were like from 2009 so I was hoping things have gotten better lol ahhhh I really want a catholic ceremony. It's so important to me. Wonder if I could come back and get married by the justice of the peace just in case haha ugh

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
