Hi there tiffanylauren! My fiance just recently decided to have our wedding at the Santa Fe in October 2013! This will be our 4th time there so we are really excited! I had a question for you.  I checked through all of the available wedding packages and there was nothing in there about a photographer.  Did the resort provide a photographer for you or did you have to find one yourself? Also, I have to say I looked up your FB and your pictures are AMAZING! Thanks for your help!

were going to be booking our wedding date this month for april 2014 at the riu santafe. We stayed at the santafe a few years back and absolutely love everything about this resort and city so there was no doubt in our minds that we would get married there.

if you need any help with knowing anything about cabo or the resort send me a mesage :)

I am getting married at the Riu Santa Fe on April 16th. I am very interested on any info anyone has. I am interested on how to get ahold of Suzanne Morel for hair and makeup.

I am so sorry that I'm just seeing some of these posts.  They do not provide a photographer in their packages, however they do have someone they recommend.  I have a friend who ended up going to the wedding and take our pictures so that worked out well.   I did my own makeup but I did have a lady in the salon do my hair.  I took a picture I had found and she ended up doing it exactly like the picture. I was very impressed.  I do have a friend who used Susan Morale and she looked gorgeous! I can see how she ended up contacting her but I believe she has a website, you may try that.  Thank you so much for the compliments on my pictures, it was such a great time and I can assure it will be the wedding of all of your dreams!

Hey ladies, Imam new on here and have so many questions! I am getting married at the riu Santa Fe in November 2013. I really want to have a private room for the reception so I can put my own touch into the space. I have not been in contact with a wedding planner there but really want to, how should I go about this?

Hi ladies! I was wondering if anyone has contact info for a photographer that they have used? My wedding is in May 2013 at the Riu Santa Fe and will be having a reception a couple days after we return. We would like to use pictures from the wedding in a slide show at the reception.

I am strongly considering booking our DW at the RIU Santa Fe for February or March of 2014.  Can anyone offer any information on the experiences that they have had w/ the resort and weddings?  Is there a big difference between having a wedding at the Santa Fe vs. the Palace?  The reason I am thinking Santa Fe is it seems like a much better value and I believe more people will be able to come.  How far in advance are you able to pick a wedding date?  Any comments on the beach and pools at the resort, flower options, spa, restaurants, would be greatly appreciated! :)

emk415- I got married there last April and it was the best decision I could have made.  We had about 25 of our friends come along and for your money, it is a great choice.  Everyone had a great time, so much in fact that we are all going back this April ;)   You can go to the RIU Santa Fe website and actually see what dates are available for your wedding.  You are allowed to reserve the wedding date through the website without a charge and will later be contacted by an event planner (not a wedding planner).  The beach is very nice outside of the resort, however you are not allowed to swim in it.  You can get in a put your feet in but the water is very rough.  The best thing to do is take a water taxi (right outside of the resort around 5 bucks a person) to Medano beach which is just a short ride but is fun.  My suggestion would be to request that you and all of your guest be put in building 7.  It is the closest to the beach, pools, and where your wedding will take place.  The resort is HUGE so this wasn't a problem. It is just much easier to communiate with people if you are all trying to plan stuff.  I also recommend putting together little goodie arrival bags with a schedule of when your events take place (rehersal dinner, wedding etc) so that people have them upon arriving.  The staff was great and passed out all of my bags without me being there.  There are 4 pools I believe.  The one that is further from the beach is more relaxing and for families and the ones closest to the beach are "party pools".  Be prepared to have people watch your wedding.  They turned down the music when the ceremony was taking place and everyone up there was very well behaved which I was very happy with.   The resort will give you info on who to get your flowers from and they did an amazing job! I actually got my bridesmaid bouquets through Etsy because they were a litte pricey at the resort, esp for them not to be able to take them home.  I showed the florist a picture of their bouquets and she was able to match the wedding flowers (real ones) perfectly.. she is very reliable and communicates and stays in contact with you... loved her.   The restaurants are good... we had our rehersal dinner just at the main restaurant (Baja California) and had our after wedding dinner at the Steakhouse (it was very good and overlooked the ocean).  I did my own makeup but got my hair done at the spa.  She did a really great job! I took a picture of what I was wanting and she did it exactly the way it looked in the picture.  This is the florist website (if they are still using the same one) .  I acutally had a friend going who does photography on the side so I did not use their photographer.

 

 

Golden011- I did not do a private receiption but I do know that you can rent out the disco room (club at the resort)  I believe it is $500 for a DJ and 3 hours of the space.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
