    Congrats girl!!! I grew up in Maryland (PG County) and currently live in Los Angeles. Our families probably WILL be on the same flights. Are you working with a travel agent?

        Thanks Pouchie!! Yep, I'm lugging all of my decor stuff with me. Even my candles, because I'm not sure of what the hotel provides (and how much extra it will cost to use it). Did anyone find out about the different color linens that Chandlyn uses??

          Will all of these be served or printed on the menu's or do you have to choose 1 selection for the entire group??

          I think the guests choose which meal they want at the dinner and that RIU prints out the menus. But I could be wrong, let me check with Chandlyn to have her clarify and I'll get back to you.

There is also dancing available in the plantation if you were looking for another option instead of renting the disco.
            Okay, if I'm deciding to go with the FREE INCLUSIVE MENU, do I have to pay anything extra for outside guests (not including the $50 entry fee)

              I just emailed Chandlyn asking her about the menus - (1) if they will be on the tables or if we need to print them out, (2) if our guests need to decide beforehand which meal they would like, and (3) if beer and wine are definitely included. You know she takes awhile to get back to me, but when she does, I'll let you all know!!!

                Oops, I meant to ask Chandlyn that too...sorry! If she answers you about it, let us know!

                  Okay great! Thanks Lizz! So i'm thinking that all the selections will be listed on the menu and our guests will just choose which one they want. I hope Riu doesn't need to know the headcount for the selection options beforehand because I didn't include that on my rsvp cards.

                  Let me know if you find anything out. Thanks a bunch!

                    Lizz - Let me know when you hear back from Chandlyn about the drink situation & menu cards - I'm very curious about this too
