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:
After looking through this forum daily for about a month, we have decided to get married at the RUI Palace Riviera Maya in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. We have stayed at a couple of the RUI chains and we loved them. My aunt got married at the RUI Palace Mexico and it was very nice.
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.
Congratulations to all the new and past brides!!
