I'm getting really worried, I didn't do enough research prior to picking out the our resort/place for our wedding but it's too late now. I have heard very little concerning this particular resort and I've searched many different websites.

 

We couldn't get someone to legally marry us there so we're going to do a symbolic ceremony. I don't know what a symbolic ceremony will encompass, will they allow us to add perhaps the Hand Ceremony? I don't want the ceremony to ultimately be something you'd find in a courthouse for the few friends who've forked over the money to join us.

 

How can I make it personal when I don't know what the ceremony itself entails?

 

We are paying for the wedding and at home reception, none of my family will be joining me but all of my fiance's family will be there, I feel like a failure of a bride since we have very little money, I have no family coming to support, and I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just in that panic mode I think. I want to relax and look forward to this but I am afraid the ceremony is going to be lame and comical (and not in a good way).

 

Does/did anyone else feel like this? Has anyone seen or been to a wedding at the RIU Palace Mexico?

 

Thanks,

From the Clueless Lame Bride!

There are several brides on this forum who have gotten married at the Riu. Just do a search for Riu Palace.

I have been there for vacation and we are staying there the week of our wedding. The resort is beautiful. You will no doubt have a lovely wedding.

My cousin and his girlfriend wen to the RIU Palace in Cancun. I know your not referring to this one but she told me that it was awesome. She saw tons of weddings and took pics to show me. She said the symbolic ceremonies were each different. I know the WC's at the RIU take forever to get back to you but they are usually ok. I haven't heard of anyone not loving their wedding at any RIU. I'm sure once your wedding gets closer you can tell the WC what kinds of things you would like to incorporate such as the hand ceremony or the sand ceremony. This should not be a problem. Ultimately they should want to make you happy. Do not feel like a terrible bride, it is hard to plan a DW and that is why this forum is so great, there is a wealth of information to help you. Don't stress your wedding will be beautiful! cheer2.gif

A friend of mine got married 2 years ago at the RIU Palace Mexico - they loved it and had so many wonderful things to say about it that we have chosen to get married at the RIU Palace Riviera Maya (slightly newer property...very similar set ups...I debated between the two resorts forever, but then just decided to go with the other one for variety :)

Awwwh.... I'm sorry to hear that you are so stressed over this. We are getting married at Riu Puerto Vallarta. The WC is Erika. I have emailed her and she usually responds within a week. I've only heard positive feedback from the Riu, so I'm sure your going to have a wonderful wedding. In regards to the symbolic wedding- we are doing the same thing as the legalities of the civic wedding was overwhelming. It's just like the civic wedding. Your guest will not be aware that it is symbolic. You can even sign at the ceremony to give the illusion of your first union. There are plenty options for you to explore.

 

Continue to review postings and I'm sure you'll find the answer to all your questions. Good luck and if you need anything just post!!!smile159.gif

I'm getting married at the RIU Palace Mexico next week (Feb 7). I've been trying to find someone as well to give me some info before I get there and finalize plans but haven't found anyone yet. When I get back I'll let you know what to expect/look for/problems to avoid.... Hope to hope anyway.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
