2012 Riu Sante Fe Brides

Recommended Posts

I'm glad you started a new thread! I am having my wedding on April 21st! It's sneaking.  What recommendations do you have for hair/nails/makeup? I have made an appointment but only got the Royal package so it does not include that in my package and am considering othere places if the prices are reasonable.  Do any of ya'll plan on renting out the disco for the reception? I am hearing mixed reviews but do not know where we would have the "reception" or at least a place for us to do our first dance...anyway, congrats to you all!

Thank you Jenna.  I have stayed at the Santa Fe in 2009 and loved it, however I do not remember us going into the disco.  I have heard mixed reviews about it and some people say it is dark and a waste of money to rent out for a reception but I am not hearing of any other alternatives...

Would you mind sending me some of the information- flower pictures etc. you have received ?  I have only gotten a few details.  I imagine she will contact me next month since my wedding is in April but would like to get a head start.  Thank you!! :)  AND CONGRATS!

Yeah we have no idea what we are gonna do after dinner. I cant imagine paying as much as they are asking for the disco rental.. we might go to some disco... im not too concerned about the after dinner party; as we are gonna be having a big party when we get back to calgary. So im thinking we will just wing it. anyone have any ideas? Keep me posted what you girls figure out!

 

Also any reviews on the hotel salon? as we have the caprice package and i get free hair and manicure with the resort salon... but im possibly thinking suzanne morel... 

 

What is everyones wedding colors? Im thinking purple.. maybe pink.... 

 

what are your guys wearing?

I am having purple as my main wedding color.  The girls are wearing short, one shoulder dresses and I believe the boys will be in white linen shirts... not sure though- left that up to my fiance :)  I am going to go ahead and get my hair/nails done at the resort because of it being included in the package.  Thank you so much Krys for your all of your info yesterday on the Sunset Mona Lisa... I talked it over with my fiance and we are just going to keep it at the resort because of my date not being available. I think we have also decided against the disco.. may go hang out by the pool for a little bit then go out...still up in the air though :)

No Problem Tiff!  Your wedding is going to be beautiful no matter what location!  Cabo is so beautiful!!  We have to leave the SDML at 10pm (with the option of paying more to stay later).  I wanted to go back to the disco, but I'm concerned it might be stinky!!  We have a some-what small group, so maybe we'll just play it by ear. 

 

My girls are wearing peachy-tangerine coloured infinity dresses and the groomsmen are wearing linen suit pants and vest in a wheat colour from J. Crew! Picking out their outfits was harder than choosing my wedding dress!   Flowers are all traditional roses in cream and peach colours.  

 

Jen I think your grey dresses with tropical flowers will look really good!

Thank you! I think it will be pretty either way too :) I am unsure about the disco because I have also heard about the smell and low lighting and we only have about 25 people and do not want to waste money on something that everyone will just be standing around... We will be at the RIU the same time!!!  =))))

    • 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.
