    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? That is what worries me about not being able to book the reception until 2 months before the wedding as well!

        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!

                  They told me that sky lanterns are not allowed at the RIU...hope this helps.

                    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?
