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.

    • 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
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
