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

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
