Idaho newbie -To be wed at RIU Palace Mexico

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I'm Emily, I'm from Idaho and just got engaged 3 weeks ago. We are getting married March 21st, 2008 at RIU Palace Mexico. We are working with destinationweddings.com, it's been an interesting experience so far. Anyone have any experience with either destinationweddings.com or RIU Palace Mexico as their wedding spot? I'm a little nervous that it's not ideal but we were trying to hurry and trying to obtain a minister on what they're calling the Holy Weekend (Easter and Good Friday) we were just lucky to have secured a minister as of yesterday after over a week of waiting.

 

We will have less than 15 people there with us, my family is unsupportive but his is very. Due to their work schedule we tried to book the trip around their schedules, thus the being thankful we secured a minister on that weekend since it was one of the only weekends they would be able to come without it being too much of an inconvenience.

 

I have many questions, and will look for a lot of advice, since I have never been to a destination wedding and don't really know what to expect.

 

I'm looking forward to being a part of this forum!

Emily

Congratulations on your engagement! March will be spring break timeframe, so traveling will be busy to these popular places. I've heard mixed reviews about destinationweddings.com, in addition they charge $50 fee while other TAs don't. That is just my two cents. lol welcome3.gif to the forum and happy planning!

Welcome to the forum Emily! Have you already signed with DestinationWeddings.com? I haven't heard the best things about them in terms of them actually being actively happy but I'm sure you can find other brides on here with more specific feedback. The location sounds great and I'm sure you're under plenty of stress with this all but trust that in the end, you'll have the day you're dreaming of. Sorry about your family not being as supportive. Hopefully they'll come around.

Welcome, alot of people are unsuportive of the dw but sometimes they do come around, and when they do most ususally love it so much everyone wants to go to another one. Good luck we are here to help.

Hi Emily and welcome,

 

I was just married at the RIU Palace in Cabo Sept 29th. And I booked my travel through DestinationWeddings.com. Let me know if I can answer any of your questions.

Well, we're working with Cookie and she's been pretty great so far. I haven't had great luck with a travel agent in town so I thought I'd give destinationweddings.com a shot. Did you have any hiccups? Did all or most of your guests book through them? So far, our price is cheaper than online quotes w/ Expedia, Orbitz, etc... but the quote for our guests based upon a guess of 3 nights the prices are a little more expensive than those travel websites. Thanks for the response!
