To all Riu Palace 2013 brides. I know there are a lot of Riu palace threads out there but have not seen one really geared to the 2013 brides, so I thought we could start a new one to share our wedding dates and information/details as the plans come together.
My wedding date is July 25th, 2013
I am having about 50 guests
Wedding coordinator is Kylene
Pink & silver color scheme
Ordered my wedding dress and BM dresses
Booking hair and makeup with Susan Morel
That's all for now!
I have spent a lot of time on here so far reading past brides' reviews, and this answered a lot of my questions. So, let me know if you have any questions!! If your wedding is coming up and you already have your details planned with Riu, I would love to know if you decided to hire the DJ, where your ceremony and reception are booked, and what you are doing for decor (I heard the florist is great and will even set up a better chuppah for you than what the Riu offers)!
I have contacted Kylene and she was quick to respond and answer all my questions - she even sent me the wedding checklists without me asking her to (apparently these don't usually get sent out until the planning begins 2 months before the wedding), so I am happy with her so far! I was told I can't book the reception location yet because they need to know the exact number of guests as the location options are very dependent on that number - so I understand their reasoning but it would still be nice to have that secured!
How is everyone's planning coming along? I am now trying to decide if I want to do DIY invitations or order from etsy. The destination wedding is definitely adding up fast! I have also been in contact with several dinner/booze cruise vendors to try to organize a welcome dinner for my guests, is anyone else doing this? If so, what company are you going with?
