Wedding Coordinator: Kylene- who has not returned my emails but Margarita the manager has 

Ceremony: Gazebo

I am getting anxious to book the Baja Norte for the reception area because there are 3 other weddings the same day!! 

Photographer: I am bringing a local photographer with us

Videographer: Angel Zapien

Dress & BM dresses: done! I just need to have mine altered, I'm waiting till April to do this

Mens attire: Just starting to look at spring stuff

Hair & Makeup: Suzanne Morel booked!

I am bringing chair sashes, cloth napkins, favours, candles, fans etc

We will be having a dj, I don't want to have to worry about music- one less stress! 

 

Can't wait to hear from others!

 

 

 

How did you find out there are 3 other weddings that day? That is what worries me about not being able to book the reception until 2 months before the wedding as well!

 

Also, if anyone is interested, I spoke with the florist and found out that they can do provide the service of setting up the chuppah/huppa (whatever it is called) for you if you are having a beach wedding, at a cost starting at $350 (pretty steep!)

WOW...that is pretty steep. So what do you get of you don't purchase a huppa? How did you find out there are 3 other weddings that day?

Hi ladies! I am getting married in November 2013 at Riu Palace Cabo. Does anyone know if they are flexible with ceremony times? I have booked a 2pm ceremony but feel that it will be a bit too early as our reception will be around 630pm. A 3pm ceremony would be perfect for us!

Hello ladies!
 

I am getting married in November at Riu Palace in Cabo. Does anybody know if they are flexible at all with their ceremony times? I booked a 2pm ceremony but feel that this may be a bit too early as our reception will be around 630pm. A 3pm ceremony would be perfect for us! Thanks :)

Go to the riu website where you originally booked your wedding. It will tell you what time slots are available that day.

I was happy with the contact with Kylene my WC at first, but lately she has not been replying to emails. I emailed to ask if sky lanterns were allowed to be released at the Riu, as I know some hotels have policies against this. It's been a couple months and a couple emails but still no reply. I only need to know in advance because I am ordering the lanterns online... Anyone know if they allow it?

 

@shayt2412, can you request a change through the Riu website? Then the wedding staff (not WC) might contact you after receiving your request.

 

My wedding is only 3 months away, starting to feel the pressure and excitement!

Thanks Houstonnlh! Please let us know how your wedding went (I believe it is/was sometime in May...?)

 

Jatziri is not my WC for some reason... I am stoked about that though - she has been great in answering my questions!

 

Not for the hardest part.. to figure out the reception location. Baja Norte or Steakhouse? I love the fact that the Baja Norte can be really personalized and you can have your first dance right there, VS. having it on a set of 4x4's in the Steakhouse location. Any suggestions from past Riu brides or those with upcoming weddings?
