Hello All,


I have just found this website as I have began planning my wedding in April 2016. We will be having it at the RIU Yucatan in Playacar and plan on bringing roughly 25 guests, including a few children.


I have previously spent time at the Yucatan after staying at the RIU Tequila in 2013 and saw a wedding taking place in the gardens. It looked beautiful and just what I wanted so always kept it in mind!


I am just introducing myself and wanting to know if anyone has any experience with weddings at the Yucatan. Any do's or dont's?

Congrats and welcome! You'll find this site very helpful as you go through your planning journey, and the brides are very willing to share tips and ideas. Do you have a travel agent yet? That would definitely be something I would recommend. They will become your new best friend and will help to take some of the stress from you by assisting your guests with arrangements and any travel questions they may have. You don't mention if you're in the US or Canada (it's a mix of both here) but the administrators of this site are destination wedding specialists and would likely be able to assist you with what you want and don't want and the price point for your guests along with your own wedding budget. They can be reached through the link on this site. Have you tried doing a search for the resort you're considering or looking through the resort review section? We do encourage returning brides to submit a review on their resort since it helps new brides to be with their planning, so definitely worth a look. I know there have been a few brides here that have dealt with various Riu resorts.


Good luck and happy planning!

Thank you Acw & PerianJay


I am actually in the West Midlands in England, so rougly 10 hours by plane to Playa Del Carmen!

We have booked the holiday & wedding through Thomson, a very reputable company here in the UK, and have also recommended our guests to this company.


I have looked through the reviews and can't find much on the Playa Del Carmen Riu's, but will keep checking.


Does anyone else feel a bit helpless being so far away from the destination? I feel like I want to get the ball rolling but don't know where to start.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
