    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! :)

      No totally not! Did you mention you're getting married at the Riu Palace in Cancun? We were there for our first tropical vacation together in 2012 and we LOVED IT!!! It's an absolutely amazing gorgeous resort!!!

        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? :)
