We are approaching the 50 day mark for our wedding countdown and we just heard for Ariadna who sent us this:


I will be so glad to help you in all your questions and planning this big day!!
PLease find below some important information that you need to know and also help you to start with this..
  1. Guest List
We will need a final list with your guest's full names, arrival dates and Hotel booked.
Please fill the attached document "guest list" and send it back;
if you dot have a guest list yet, send me an approx number of guests and when this list is ready send it to me. Consider that at least 80% of your guests should be staying at the Hotel.
If someone of your guests are not staying in RIU Palace Riviera Maya, they will need wedding passes at extra charge.

3. Cocktail Hour

We could arrange a semiprivate cocktail hour after the ceremony for you,
while you are waiting for the dinner. This could be in La Habana Bar or Lyrico Bar, let me know if you are interested.
You also have the option to add appetizers for extra charge in this cocktail hour. Let me know.

4. Wedding Dinner:
Remember that the dinner included in your package is asemiprivate dinner
that means we would open the restaurant for all the guests and just have special tables for you and your party.
You receive regular menu and drinks : soft drinks, beer, wine and water.
Which restaurant would you prefer ?

Please bare in mind that groups over 30 people for dinner will be accommodated during the 2nd seating 8:30 PM

- Chillis, is an open air restaurant, close to the beach area, tropical
and informal. (I have attached the menu for your consideration)

- Bota Fogo, has A/C, it's formal, Brazilian Rodizo style with a
classic atmosphere. (I have attached the menu for your consideration)

Please check with your wedding coordinator if your choice is available.
**If you want to have a private dinner ($) please ask to your wedding coordinator about your options**

5 . Cake & Main Toast & Set up

On regards the ceremony, it will take like 15 or 20 min. I need you to advise me if you will need chairs for all your guests or may be you will have some bridesmaids/groomsmen who might stand up.

Be informed that the chairs for the ceremony are set without any other decoration, the new chair we are using now for all of our weddings (no matter what location) it is the one as in the picture "nuevas sillas".

We can play our CD`s with music that we handle for ceremonies (please find enclosed the list of songs). However, if you will be bringing your own music (CD OR IPOD) , I will need the song list and the order they should be played, it means which for the entrance, while saying vows/signature(if required) and the ending.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
