    I know it is soon but to all Riu Palace 2014 brides. I know there are a lot of Riu palace threads out there but have not seen one really geared to the 2014 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 January 25th, 2014

    I am having about 50 guests

    Wedding coordinator is:

    Music: We are getting the marachai band & bringing our own Dj for reception, and I think a violinst for the cermony

    Beach ceremony at 4pm

    Blush & White color scheme

    Ordered my wedding dress at Stardust in Dallas, no BM's

    Photographer: I am searching for a good one any suggestions?

    Booking hair and makeup with Susan Morel

    Reception: I am not sure where to have it with 50 people. Also as far as dinner goes I am not sure either. Does anyone have an advice who may have gotten married there in 2013? I would appreciate it!!

      Hi Lacyb123!

       

      First of all, congratulations!

      I am also getting married at the Riu Palace! Our wedding date is April 8, 2014

       

      We haven't set a certain Wedding Coordinator yet, we have just being emailing back and forth a couple times.

      We are also having a 4 pm beach ceremony - have you figured out your d©cor for the beach yet?

      For our music, we read a bunch of reviews and actually are probably going to use an ipod and just rent the equipment, and have our own MC.

       

      We have also been looking into photography and debating bringing our own or using a Cabo vendor.

      I am having my sisters/bridal party help with my hair and makeup.

      We have not finalized the reception either - maybe gearing for the beach!

        hi hi!!

         

        First of all congrats!!! I have decided not to do it at the RIU. My mom and I went down there a few months ago to go make sure it was what I wanted. Thankfully we did go and I decided not to do it there. I had a certain idea in my head about what I wanted and when I got there I was overwhelmed with everything, and the location, and amount of people, and rooms. So we decided to switch location to anything much much smaller hotel and location. 

         

        We are also doing a beach ceremony at 5pm, my decor for the beach is a large wooden piece I am drapping pink sheers over with a small amount of flowers. I will also be doing flower peatles down the isle. I am trying to keep it all very simple. During the ceremony I am having a harpist play then for the reception we got a DJ.  I do not have a photographer yet I will take whatever one they got I am very laid back about that stuff. Also, hair and make up I may do my own or see what the hotel has to offer. Our reception is on the beach around a bon fire, we are doing a 5 course plated dinner, then cake and dj/dancing. All this was in our package they did not have any other choices but it worked out. 

         

        I wish you the best of luck and if you have any other questions feel free to e-mail me at lacyb123@gmail.com

            Hi ladies!

             

            I am getting married at Riu Palace Cabo in July 2014 as well :) we literally just reserved our date so we are in the beginning stages as well. Here are the details I do have:

             

            My wedding date is July 4th, 2014

            Only 6 guests

            Music: We are bringing our own Ipod and dock

            Beach ceremony at 4pm

            White & Red colors

            Photographer: I don't want to spend much on this...has anyone heard of someone doing their own photographs?

            Reception: We are going to incorporate our semi-private dinner into our reception to avoid too many extra costs

              Hi Ladies~

              Congrats to everyone on their upcoming weddings!!! We are getting married at the RIU Palace on April 28th, 2014. Soooo excited! I've been to the RIU in Puerta Vallarta for a wedding and it was the best wedding/vacation i've ever been on so i'm super excited to go to the RIU in Cabo. 

               

              We are doing the 6pm wedding at the San Jose Gazebo and hopefully the reception on the Baja Notre terrace. I'm a bit nervous about getting our desired reception location since their are 4 weddings that day. We plan on having  the works: marachi band, DJ, dance floor, and debating the fireworks. Our first date was a fireworks show so we thought it would be fun to incorporate them into our wedding. 

               

              Planning on around 30-50 people 

              Colors: Coral & Tan

              Photos: My best friend will be doing them

              Videographer: We are hired a videographer from home who will be traveling with us. 

              Hair and Makeup: Planning on going through the famous Susan Morel

              Dinner: Planning on have a buffet 

               

              Good luck to all the 2014 Cabo Brides!!!!! Can't wait to see pics and hear all the great stories!!!

                Hi ryliemichelle! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! For our photography we are most likely bringing a photographer from our home town. Their deal usually is a less expensive cost for the day of shooting, and another day or so, but you pay for their week. This usually works out about the same cost as a local photographer anyway! Good luck with your planning!

                  Hi AlyssaD21 ! How is your planning going? Have you decided on your locations? How about a photographer? I think we decided on bringing someone from our hometown, as I mentioned above to ryliemichelle! Happy planning and congrats!

                  Hello all!

                   

                  My wedding date has been set for Friday 10/03/2014, however if I want it at the Riu, I will have to push it back a week to 10/10/2014.

                   

                  I am also considering (still looking at other places) the RIU Palace hotel. Its gorgeous! I have been reading reviews and a little skeptical but the scenery is everything I could have imagined. I want the San Jose Gazebo location and would love to have my reception at the Terraza Baja Norte location. I def want the private atmosphere even thought the Caprice package comes with a semi-private dinner. Plus the prices for the packages is very decent. The only thing I heard about this resort is that its VERY strict.

                   

                  I hope to hear from someone at the resort soon!

                   

                  Take care and congrats!

                    Hello all, I am new to this site, and for some reason am starting to stress out about the wedding I know it is far away, but I really don't know reception areas, extra pricing etc. It is driving my fianc© and I nuts. He tried to change the time of the wedding but it looks to be booked for that whole day :(. We chose 6 but when we were thinking about it pictures are after and does not leave a lot of time for a reception. Now I am wondering if I will be able to choose my reception area before the others or if I am going to have to settle for what is available. 

                     

                    My wedding date is June 7, 2014

                    I am having about 60 to 70 guests

                    Wedding coordinator is:

                    Music: Still wondering if we should et a DJ (and MC)???

                    Beach ceremony at 6pm

                    Tiffany Blue, tan/beige/sand & White color scheme

                    Ordered my wedding dress, Bridemaids dresses are picked out. We are letting them choose from 3 styles.

                    Photographer: Not sure yet as we have not spoken with Riu about this also any info on this is very helpful as well as videographer.

                    Hair and makeup will be done by my sister in law

                    Reception: We would like it on the beach or Baja Norte. Would like to have private.
