When I searched these message boards, I trouble finding info specific to the Riu Palace Tropical Bay. I just got back from 10 days there where I had my wedding. Loved it! Please feel free to ask me anything - I will give you honest answers and am happy to give you tips to make your experience as great as mine was!

Congratulations and thrilled to see your post! We are planning a wedding at RPTBay for July 2013 and want to know everything! Did you have a beach wedding and was it private? How many weddings does the resort host per day? Can you share costs on the reception component? Any information and/or photos you have to share would be brilliant!!

I too recently booked our wedding at the Palace Tropical Bay for October 12th, 2013. I've been working with Ann Marie, she has been really great and very helpful. I'm finding out things are expensive in different ways. the chair covers with bows cost $12 per chair, its $12 per person over 10 that go to the wedding if you choose the "free package". The officiant is $500 with the free package. You only get a choice between 2 bouquets without an additional charge.
I keep second guessing myself on the resort even though I've heard wonderful reviews and looked at great pictures, but I was checking out the Ochios Rios Riu, which looked much nicer.
I saw a youtube video of a bride getting married on the Palace Tropical Bay beach, and there were people all around watching, and one even walked through the wedding.. I don't mind if some people are on the beach, but I don't want to be in the middle of everything and have that in all of my photos.
I look forward to hearing your experiences with this and your thoughts.

if they are staying 3 days at the resort then you don't have to pay the vendor fee. Ask your wedding planner at the resort about this, and have email confirmation. I looked into this already because the fee is $350 or so. Hope this helps!
