For those of you who wanted to know, Riu has finally responded to my question about the day pass. If you are staying at one of the Riu you have to pay 45$ for a day pass if the wedding is at the palace. If you are staying at a completely different resort then you have to pay 95$.

 

Also, you can only eat dinner (a la carte or buffet) at your own resort. So if you are staying at the palace and you want to have dinner with friends staying at the Yucatan, you can't. After 6 pm everyone needs to return to their own resort.

 

They sent me a price list of some of the extras. Give me your email address if you want me to send it to you!

 

Good luck! :)

I agree about the high price to have a wedding at the Riu Palace - ours will probably be over $10,000 since we will be having approximately 50-60 guests. But I figure it's cheaper than having it back home, and it'll be nicer to spend quality, relaxed time with friends and family on a vacation, so I'm well ahead! We are also comfortable paying a slightly higher price to ensure quality of food and service, as the Riu Palace Riviera Maya has virtually no negative reviews. I'll pay for a little piece of mind!

I totally agree rbehlke! I don't mind spending a bit more to have it extra special, and it will still be way cheaper then having a big wedding at home. At first we thought we would have about 50 guests, we are now at 70 and many more are planning to book later! We are having ours at the Riu Palace Mexico. I haven't decided where we will have our reception yet, thinking the steakhouse? Where are you having yours?

We have booked Chili's for the dinner and dancing. It's got a great menu with diverse options and is next to the beach so what could be better! It's also the only one that's open air and would fit our guests and a dance floor area.

    • 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
