RIU HELP PLEASE!

Recommended Posts

I am seriously considering choosing RIU for my wedding however I have a few questions....

 

If I have the reception in the Steakhouse....is it private? How does it work with your linen choice and centerpieces? Where did you dance at? Did you have to go to a different location?

 

Is it possible to have the reception out on a terrace? Or other options?

 

For the flowers, do you get to pick the flower choice?

 

 

My fiance is really set on RIU but I am still uncertain because of the tiny details I am unsure about. PLease help me if you can with the above info. Thanks

I recently found out that the steak house is considered to be an open air restaurant. Meaning no walls for a wind break.

 

semi private that are included in pkgs are on the terrace at the Mexican and San Jose restaurant.

 

The steak house can only be booked for private.

 

NOTE: check carefully regarding extras...there are many hidden extras

 

for example if you want something besides pop and wine you will need to pay for an open bar which does not include blended drinks.

 

you can get a hook up for IPod but you will need to rent the speakers by the hour.

 

table cloths are white - color choice is only the napkins.

 

there are certain flowers that you can pick colors - if they are in season

 

all of this you make arrangements with your consultant at the resort

Crys-I have the steakhouse booked as a semi private. Who told you that you could only book it as a private?

For some reason my post didn't work! It is true the steakhouse only has white linens. My mom and Aunt are bringing table runners, tea lights and we are ordering flower centerpieces to jazz it up! I'm not sure if we are supposed to bring table runners though! lol! We haven't asked yet!

the resort told me

 

I was told the steak house restaurant was for private

the steak house terrace is for semi private

 

Linens are white except napkins (there is a list to pick a color for those)

 

no dancing except at the disco when it is semi private

I was told the complete opposite......(steakhouse semi-private, steakhouse terrace private). That is also what is listed on the document I received on the different reception locations so I have it attached. :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
