New Jersey Newbie!!! - May 11, 2013 RPRM

Recommended Posts

Congratulations and welcome!  The RIU Palace is a great location!  You will be close to the downtown area so you and your guests will get to experience the city life as well! (As much of a "city" life as you get in our laid-back beach town... ).  May might be a little cooler than June, however if any of you are snorkelers, June is already whaleshark season and that experience is truly not-to-be-missed!

 

Happy Planning!

Thank you so much for responding... I was reading that the temperature in May and June was good weather to marry because it's before the rainy season, is that not true?

Thank you for replying, I found a couple of websites that focus on that resort and they were very helpful, the only thing is most are very old post. I was hoping for some post from  newly married or up coming brides. I'm sure I will run into some while I'm planning. Congrats on your engagement and happy planning.

WELCOME SHAY!  CONGRATULATIONS on the engagement & from what it sounds like, the new baby!!!!  I am from Upstate NY (Albany/Saratoga area) & I, too am getting married in April 2013 - we have chosen the Riu Palace Riviera Maya as well.  My FI & I vacationed there 2 years ago with 4 other couples and ABSOLUTELY loved it there.  It is a great area.  The hotel is one of the cleanest and well kept places I've been to so far in Cancun.  The staff was so friendly and we loved the food there!!!!

 

We are hoping to wed the Easter break week since that is when my FI's son will have the week off from school.  We have yet to book because we are waiting on the School Easter Break Schedule to be confirmed for 2013.  I do not feel comfortable booking until I know for sure.  They are waiting for the Standardized Testing schedule to be received.  (RED TAPE!)

 

I recently got engaged on Christmas 2011.  Very exciting.  

 

I have found some past threads of Riu Palace Riviera Maya (RPRM) brides on here, but only one other 2013 one so far.

 

I would love to keep in touch with you through our planning and compare notes/ideas.

 

Here are a few threads I have found helpful so far:

 

Some reviews:

Since I will be on maternity leave in 6 weeks, I'm hoping to get a lot of things out the way.I did look at a couple of forums about RPRM, but I have not seen any recent brides getting married there. We have a date of May 11, 2013 but that can change to June 11, 2013.. 

 

Anyway I wanted to know if there is there anyone else out there who has considered this resort, any information they have found, and any other information out there about the resort from current and past brides... I have been on thier website and looked at the packages they offer but more information would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

 

and 

 

Congratulations to all the new and past brides!! :)

Hi Elissae -

 

Thanks and Congratulations on your engagment. I recently booked my wedding at the riu palace (last week). I booked May 11, 2013, we decided on May because we felt it was better to get past the spring breakers, plus its beautiful weather and the price is lower during that time. I'm working on my save the dates right now and just booked our engagement party.  I would love to be planning buddies :)  I am working with Wendy Hicks from Wright Travel... She is awesome, very nice. She responds very fast...let me know if you have any questions...

OMG Tashay!  I reached out to Wendy Hicks, too!  We are going to use her as well!  She got a GLOWING review on this website.  She wrote back to me within the same day.    AWESOME.  So based on your booking - I will be there a month before you!  WOOT HOOT!  Looking forward to planning with you!  cheer2.gif

I've been working with Wendy Hicks and poor thing have I made her work.  I have asked her so many, many questions and she is always happy to respond and does so in a timely manner.  She has a lot of input and has been so essential in helping me pick my resort!!

You can sure say that again, Marilili!  She is wonderful.  I did the same thing and had so many questions...she answered everything to such great detail.    I just sent her a note just tonight to let her know I have not strayed & that I am still waiting to confirm my week before I book.

 

Have you decided where you are going to get married?  I think I saw you are a January 2013 bride?  I look forward to seeing you on here.

 

Talk soon!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
