Guess List When Booking?

Recommended Posts

Hey all - looking for some help here!! I'm trying to book our wedding at RIU Palace in Cabo however when I go online and work through the process they want a guest list right now based on the package we selected. I'm guessing at the attendance at this point as obviously, having just gotten engaged on Saturday, we don't have any clue how many guests we'll actually have. I know they have an 80% guideline but are they seriously asking me to know who those people are before I've even sent a Save The Date?!?! I emailed RIU but in the meantime I thought I'd come here for some guidance. I dont want to lose our date and time but there's no way I have a guest list at this point!

Usually you do not need to give a guest list right away.  Just tell them that you will provide one later.

 

We usually send a guest list for our clients about 60 days out.

Yeah that seems a little unreasonable to me! Maybe it's a little too early to fill out that online form you were looking at. I'd get in touch with the WC and explain you're just getting the ball rolling, but don't want to lose your date. I'm sure they will understand, there must be a way around it.

It didn't really tell me if they were looking for a number or list of names, it just said "Guests". So weird! I emailed the address for the RIU so I'm waiting for a reply now. Does anyone have the email for the RIU Palace specifically? I think the one on the website is a generic one that probably goes to the main office in Cancun.

Tammy, I also sent an inquiry via the Wright Travel link to get some information on your services. I'm not sure how it works have a TA vs just doing the bookings ourselves but I'd love some info! Here's my direct email if that helps! jess.johnson78@yahoo.com

Thanks, at least I know I'm now alone in thinking this seemed a little early! :)

That's awesome, I imagine all of the Riu chains are amazing and beautiful! We would definitely like to go back someday.

So it turns out it was a count they wanted... WHY don't they specify that!??!!? Still a little early for me to know that number so I'm really hoping there's some flexibility.

Hello @@jackshayne0123 ! I'm actually getting married at the Riu Palace this August! When I first made the reservation for the date and time they did send me all the info they needed (reception location, guest list, etc.) However, they don't need it until 2 months before your wedding date. So unless, you're getting married in June of this year, you're fine. When is your wedding date, btw? :)

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
