    Hi ladies.... I have been trying to find fellow brides who are getting married or who have already got married at the riu caribe in cancun Mexico. I have been very unsuccessful. Then I tried finding others getting married at either of the other two riu hotels in the cancun hotel zone and again I have been unsuccessful... we all share a wc and I would love to share info with fellow brides but I can't find any! Is anyone out there??!

      YOU ARE NOT ALONE!  I am so glad I found you!  I am planning a Dec 11 wedding at the Riu Caribe.  When is yours and what plans have you made so far?  I would love to share with you!

              Yes we just got back from there in March 28 and it was AMAZING!  We have been to Cancun before and loved it but this resort seemed like such a better fit for us so we decided to get married there!  Now obviously that means I have alot to do before then, but I do have the wedding confirmed with one of their packages (ROYAL) as I think our guest list will be limited to 15.  This is a second marriage for us so we are not going too elaborate, but I am wondering...I saw your website (awesome by the way!) and saw you are booking in July 2011.  I am still trying to get a good rate (HOPEFULLY $1300 per person flight etc) as we have 4 kids we are bringing!  Just curious on what rate you are getting IF you care to share?  and do you think your travel agent would be helpful?  I was looking through Apple and right now lowest rate is $1723 so I want to wait, BUT I am going to freak out the closer it gets to December.  So I am just super excited to be able to share this with people who are going thru the same thing!!

               

              THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                We also got the royal package....we are estimating no more then 50 guests but well have to upgrade a few things. We loved he resort I think it is just perfect! Altough we posted pr travel agent information to the site my fiance and I are actually waitng till after july of this year to book rates are way too outrageous to book this far in advance although I would love too (people could book now they are just going to pay top dollar) ..here's the trouble I am going to have with booking our flight/stay is when we went in September. We paid 1600 for both of us for flight and a 7 day stay!!! Ughh so I am going to be a stickler when it comes to getting a good rate! But my travel agent is amazing and has a really grea relationship with the resort....I think that if anyone could get you a good rae it would be her! She is so nice I would definitely recommend her! I have gotten so much useful info from her and the resorts planning has been a piece of cake! I am so excited to finally have a fellow riu caribe bride to talk with!

                  Well thank you so much. I may email her if you dont mind!   I know destination weddings are ideal for us b/c they take care of most of the details but I am so excited to have found this site because I am starting to get a little overwhelmed by what all I need to do so it is going to be nice to share those moments and see what moments others have!

                    I don't mind at all! Do you need her email? Or did you find it on my website?

                      I emailed her and she is out of office til next week but we are going to talk then!  yay!  I think that is going to make a world of difference in actually making this begin to seem like it is actually happening and time is NOT standing still!  Thanks so much.  I just happened upon this website a few days ago and have been looking thru all the forums and am learning so much!  If you have any recommending reading or anything let me know!!
