      Hi ladies!

       

      My name is Ashley! I am newly engaged :) We have decided on a destination wedding and 95% sure RIU is our choice. My fiancee and I are not getting married until 2014 so we have lots of time but I am getting a head start reading all these comments and getting a better understand as to what to expect! Everyone's comments are so helpful! I can't wait to hear how the weddings turn out. I am sure I will have lots of comments along the way.

        Hi ladies, I recently got back from my site visit. We had the opportunity to meet with Clara, one of the WC while we were there. A few prices that she gave me were if you want a private reception at the brazilian restaurant it's $1000, a semi-private reception at the steakhouse is $600. I struggle with this because we ate at both restaurants, the steak house is beautiful, close to the beach and gazebo, and open, BUT I was very disappointed with the food. The brazilian is a fairly small closed in room with pillars in the middle of the room, the the food is SO much better. The prices are for 6:30-10:30, and would be $100 for ever hour after. There is a price of 12.50 per guest over your 15 or 40 guest limit (depending on which package you choose). Which I understand is to cover the cake cutting and champagne service pp. The house MC and DJ is $700, or DJ only for $550. I also learned, if you don't Want either you can rent the DJ equipment and bring your own CD or Ipod to plug in. They also have fire dancers or cigar rollers at an extra cost. An open bar, with private bartender comes at an extra cost, otherwise you have the option of beer, rum or house wine. If you want bouquets and boutonnieres for the bridal party you'll pay extra for each. We also met with the house photographers Antillana and viewed their photo packages, which I was impressed with, they seemed very open to customizing a package to your liking. Remember, they will need at least 1.5 days to edit and print your pictures if you would like them before your departure. My fiance and I made a video tour of the resort, if you're. Interested in seeing it let me know and I'll give you the Facebook link. Let me know if you have any questions about my visit, I'll try to help where I can!!!

          Wow you got a lot done! I'm getting upset with some of the prices. Right now they are quoting me 100 per centerpiece! And mine are super simple! Plus they are taking a week to return my emails! I'm starting to panick lol
