    I am having trouble getting answers on some of my final questions from Adriana and wanted to see if any of you Riu Cabo brides can help me! I would greatly appreciate it because I am going crazy waiting for answers!

    1. If you want to hire a classical trio or classical guitarist for the ceremony and cocktail hour do you have to hire from their specific vendors or can you hire whoever you would like?

    I ask this because I had to choose from a list of photographers so I am not sure what to do and she has not gotten back to me.

    2. Also, does anyone know how many people can be seated on the terrace of the Mexican Restaurant?

    We have 60 guests confirmed already and could get a few more. I have rented the restaurant for the eveing and I know the entire restaurant can seat up to 80 people but I really did not want to seat people inside and outside. I wanted them to all be together with us.

    3. I know I can bring in my own champagne but do they charge corkage fee?

    4. Has anyone shipped any of their reception decor to the resort?

    Thank you so much to anyone that has answers!!!

      I dont have all the answers - you can hire your own musicians but you will probably be charged a 70$ per person entrance fee for them to come on site. You need to compare the costs you get compared with hers and include the additional cost to get them on site.

      A lot of girls used her photographer since it was included in their package then hired whoever they wanted also.

      I am only having 16 people on the mexican terrace so i dont know their capacity. Sorry

      No Idea about the champagne.

      A lot of people dont recommend shipping the decor since apparently Mexico is not consistent about delivering undamaged, ontime things.

      Sorry for not that much help - more girls will have more info... :)

        Do you know who their musicians are? I want a classical trio, but I want to hear samples of the music first and be able to find out what they play.

          Adriana is no longer the wedding coordinator at the RIU. I was just married there September 29th and her last day was Oct 5th.

            Hi,

            There are a lot of photographers in the forum, with great reviews and samples, a wide variety of prices and packages as well. Check around or ask the brides of the forum for their recomendations.


            Regards,

              Hi
              The capacity for the Mexican Terrace is 80 people.......thats what Adriana told me before she apparently left.
              hope that helps

                Hi Kristen,

                I don't have many answers for you but I definitely wouldn't recommend shipping anything to Mexico. Way too many horror stories to risk that and I think it is rather expensive. I'm just going to take alot of extra baggage and hoped I don't get charged an insane amount. I also asked Daniela about bringing our own snacks and wine/champagne in and she didn't have an issue with it at all....not sure about corkage though.

                Not to hijack this thread - but for those of you taking your IPODs for reception music, did you have to supply a docking station as well? I know they will set up the sound system for us but I'm not completely sure what I need to take with me to ensure the IPOD will work.

                  I am getting married there in July 2008. I had no idea that Adriana left. Let me know if you find out any more information.

                    Daniela is the new wedding coordinator and she is very responsive. She has been very easy for me to work with. Have you tried to contact her?
