    I have vacationed there in April 2010 & loved it!  We are looking to do a civil ceremony so I need to determine what day I have to arrive in order to be married by Wed at the latest.  LOL!

     

    We originally thought we wanted a beach wedding for 4pm, but are thinking perhaps a Gazebo one instead.  Did you do a cocktail hour after the ceremony?  Then dinner?  Any insight you could share would be great!  

     

    Congrats & Thanks!  :-)
     



     




    Hey there. Good Luck with your planning, I miss it soooo much... although im sooo happy to be a wife to my gorgeous hubby :-)
    We had cocktail hour after photos then diner :-) We never had many people with us (7 inc us) so we just went with the flow, as we didnt have to plan for people.... how many guests you got going?

    This time last year we were 20 days away from flying and 25 days away from being married!!!! Where does time go??? xx

    We hopefully going back to Mexico next year April/May time... not sure what resort but hopefully nr RPRM so we can sneak in for a peek :-) Were Off to Cuba for our Anniversary this year xx

        I cannot tell you how happy I am to have found this website.  AWESOME.  We are planning a wedding in Riviera Maya and are leaning toward using Apple Vacations to help take care of the travel arrangements and just purchase their wedding package. We are loving the pictures and pricing in the Riu Palace Riviera Maya.  When you guys post please share who you worked with and any advice you could provide.  I can't wait to see the pictures, I feel like we are great friends sharing something so meaningful.  This is both of our second marriages as we both were married young and probably shouldn't have gotten married in the first place so we are both doing something out of the ordinary and more relaxed, meaningful and memorable.  Keep up the good posts and I will do my best to share any findings as well.

            It has been a long while since I have been on DW.  My fianc¬© and I are heading out to Riviera Maya this Saturday, January 12, 2013.  Cannot wait.  Our wedding date is tentatively set for the first week of December 2013.  We have 5 hotels we are considering and trying to get it down to our top 3 before we leave on Saturday.  Our goal is to visit the venues, choose one, pick the date and sign the contract (I hope).  We are no longer going with Apple Vacations as I stated before.  Unfortunately we didn't find that there was much of a savings having the wedding planned through them.  As of today we are planning on visiting Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe and Riu Palace and have to decide which third hotel is a contender.  We are leaning toward the Barcelo Deluxe.

             

            I have a few questions for the group:

             

            How did you all estimate how many people will be attending?  We are inviting about 100 people and I would like to think that we will have about 25-30 (which would equate to approximately 15 rooms) people but am not sure.  How necessary is it to have a good estimate, 1 year in advance?  I have not sent out the save the date or the announcement as we want to know what options we have for our guests stay.  Are we doing things backwards?

             

            My other question is:  How much more do/did you have to pay above and beyond the wedding package?  Unexpected expenses?

             

            Last question: I am a closet party planner and am really trying to let-go of many of the details of wedding planning, isn't that why many people choose a destination wedding?  I was telling my fianc¬© that maybe we should consider getting a storage space out there and send stuff to it!  Ha... just joking.  Did you have a color scheme?  Did they have favors and fun little personal touches?  Can you bring your own or do they provide stuff.

             

            I have a zillion more questions but am doing my darnedest to take it slow.  :)

             

            Thank you in advance for your consideration, comments and suggestions.

            Hello I am newly engaged and I've made arrangements to have my wedding next Sept 2012 at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya. I requested a beach front wedding. Has anyone had a wedding there? If so, how was it? Any advice. And which dining restaurant did you chose for the reception? Any pics of the wedding scenery would be great as well. This is my first time planning a wedding so I'm nervous. I just want everything to run smoothly with no drama, if that's possible :-)

            I'm not sure if you'll read this! Just looking for a little feedback on your wedding. I am getting married May 31. I'm torn on whether or not I should use the resort photographer. Who did you go with?
