    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!

    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

        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.
