        Ladies, could someone tell me what email adress you used to contact wedding coordinator at Riu?the link that i have found and emailed to was something like rioweddings.com... they got back to me with packages, but it is an agency that does all the weddings in Rio resorts(DR, Mexico, Jamaica). I dont really want to deal with a middle men.

        oh and BTW 2yrs ago we stayed at Rio Bambu, and there was a lot of brides from Palace. There is also a restaurant outside at Rio Bambu i believe its called carribian steakhouse, right on the water.Where i remember seeing wedding dinners taking place. It was awesome!

                Awesome news!  You won't be disappointed!  Michael was great to work with, he took amazing photos and had everything printed and back to us at the hotel 3 days later!  The coffee table book is fantastic, everyone loves it and I love showing it off to friends and family!

                  Congrats to all those who have booked your date!! I have booked mine for May 2012!! :) I'm starting to really plan now.... waiting for group rates from the travel agent.  I heard that the best times to get rates is 6-8 months before the wedding date.

                   

                  skygirl - try emailing Daniela at dsandoval@riu.com  She's the RIU Sales Exec and has been great in answering all my questions. Once you confirm a date, she will help you through the process and then link you up to the wedding co-ordinators.

                   

                  ablj209- hi! congrats on your wedding!! I am also looking for a photographer. I really want someone who is unique and has unique ideas for poses and stuff. Would you say Carribean Emotions were really great? Do you have pictures you can share? Also, where did you have your reception dinner? We were thinking of the Steakhouse...but I looked at the menu and i worry it's not enough food as we have big men with big appetites coming ;p

                    Did you get your group rates from your TA for May 2012?

                      jenthony - Caribbean Emotions was fantastic! He was very creative and had us doing some funky poses (we love one that he called Peek-a-Boo).  If you have any ideas that you want, just let him know and he'll make sure you get the shot! 

                       

                      Here are some pics... http://www.bestdesti...dated-w-pics/50

                       

                      We had our reception at the Steakhouse..  There was plenty of food for us and remember, if the guys are still hungry, the RIU offers 24hr room service and there are snacks in the Sports Bar (also open 24hrs) so they can grab some more food there :)
