2012 Riu Palace Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi there, my name is Kristina and my fiance and I have just booked our wedding to take place Nov 2012 at the Riu Palace. Its so great to see so many past and future brides oppinions and past experiences. I am so nervous about waiting until 2 months before my wedding date to book of the wedding details. Did anyone have the option of booking the location of the reception at an earlier time?

Thanks

Hey All,

   

        We are booked for October 20, 2012!

 

Does anyone know if there is a per person fee if we rent out the Steak house for a private dinner? (provided we have 50+ guests)

hey, so as far as the steakhouse (if you rented it solo, the site fee its about 1800 and they provide the usual menu that they would if they were open for business. It does NOT include alcohol as in Drinks...they provide beer, wine and soda. if you want your guests to have liquor, then you would have to pay $16 per person.

 

Also, to book this restaurant you need a MINIMUM of 60 people..they wont let you book it otherwise.

Because the wedding is an ' exclusive' event that you are having at the hotel so in that case they can charge for the venue, the alcohol , the food ( if you choose to have  a private dinner). They take advantage of the weddings just like a venue back in your hometown does. It sucks , but it's still cheaper than having a large wedding back home - in my case anyways :) Goodluck ladies!

Hello My RIU brides!  Hope everyones planning is going well.  I'm having a bit of a sad day...Just got an e-mail that my WC, Adriana Diaz is no longer with the RIU, and someone named Jatziri Acero is my new coordinator...oh boy!  I only say this because Adriana was excellent...Although my wedding isn't until May 12, she answered my 1000 questions since January of 2011 when I booked this place.  I just hope that everything goes smoothly.  Anyone else have this new coordinator?   On a better note, I did get what I believe to be the 2012 menu.  It looks different than the ones I had before, and I have attached it for you all.  Jatziri said "attaching the the menus for the Baja Norte", but I would assume that its the same menu for all private events.

 

For those of you who are having the civil ceremony like oursleves, I tried asking how we go about the translation and aposille of our birth certificates, but didn't really get very far there.  Jatziri just said "The documents you need make the apostille and translation with a certificate nortary."  Ok so I am a notary and I don't know what the hell we are supposed to do!  Has anyone done this?  Do you just write in right on your birth certificate in Spanish next to the English info? 

 

 

I am also booking the DJ package for $540.00 which includes the sound system and lighting.  If anyone has any feedback on this, please feel free to share :)

 

Thanks everyone!  Happy Planning!  If you can't open attachments and need the menu for the private events, feel free to e-mail me at

kary_przybylo@hotmail.com  (underscore btw my first and last name)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
