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,

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!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
