    We just completed a wedding at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya and wanted to let all you brides to be out there that the photographer at the hotel - Sergio of Adventure Photography is AMAZING!!! His work was fantastic and our bride and groom couldn't have been happier with their choices.

        can you pass along the wedding info to me?? I'm not finding anything on weddings from this resort! I heard there is also no wedding package that's complimentary.

          Did your bride have a semi private dinner or private dinner? Just wondering the pros and cons of both? I'm having trouble deciding which one to choose.

          I'm getting married at Riu Palace Riviera Maya May 31 2014. If you have any information about your experiences I would love to hear from you. Did you do a semi-private dinner or private dinner? I'm having trouble deciding if the private dinner will be worth the money. Congrats!

          Hello to all the Riu Palace Mexico and Riu Palace Riviera Maya brides! Congrats on your upcoming weddings! :) This post is for any brides interested in affordable decor for your big day.


          I'm a newlywed from Vancouver, Canada that lives down here in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. I have quite a few decor items leftover from our wedding in May, mostly in a rustic vintage style. I've decided to rent things out to brides that don't want to lug things like vases & mason jars down here to Mexico, and have priced things quite fairly compared to the resorts' prices. I have a lots of different types of bottles, mason jars, vases and lanterns, as well as a variety of other items like wooden signs & frames, table runners, rustic birdcages, string lighting and even a portable sound system.

          If you want a Style Me Pretty or Ruffled type of wedding in Mexico without a huge price tag, I'm your gal! So far no one has had to pay an outside vendor fee at all, as they tell their WC that they have brought the decor themselves. I'm also always interested in buying items that brides bring down and would like to sell after their weddings, please send me photos of anything you'd like to sell!

          If you'd like to see some photos and a price list, please send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you all the info. Also if anyone has any questions about the area, ask away! I've lived in Playa Del Carmen for two years and know the area quite well. Happy planning ladies!


          Here's a couple of photos of some items we used in our wedding and that are for rent:

          Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.

            Hi Mellyb81,

            I, too, am getting married at the RPM and was wondering if you could please forward me any tips, info, advice, etc. Our wedding date is 10-14-14 so we have confirmed our date and time, but not yet officially planned any of the ceremony or reception specifics yet.
            Your words of wisdom and experience are greatly appreciated.

            Thank you!

              Congrats Liz! We are having trouble deciding on the semi private vs private dinner too.
              Any updates on your selection and reasoning behind it? We are just in the beginning stages of planning for our wedding there on 10-14-14. Any insight you can provide me is always welcomed and appreciated.

              Btw, we are going with the Caprice package and are expecting 35-40 ppl.

              Thank you everyone for the info. Does anyone have any recent pricing for RPRM? I'm looking to get married in July 2015. I'm looking into a private reception with around 50-70 guests and it's taking a little longer than I was hoping for Riu to email me back with answers to my question. Thanks everyone in advance.
