Free Riu Wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi All!

Has anyone used the Free Wedding package offered by Riu. We are having our wedding at ROR next Jan and we plan on using the package. Any advice? Is it better to upgrade to a bigger package? any other suggestions? We plan on taking a small group(about 25 people). We want something simple and elegant. I always believe the more elaborate the plan, the more can go wrong! The free package seems simple and easy but is it cheap and tacky? Any advise or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Have a great day

Mel

I am getting the free package also and then if I want anything extra adding it on. I have about 80 people going, but the higher packages didn't have much more that I wanted, regardless of the amount of people.

I am just going with the free package as well, but will upgrade certain things.. for example, I am not a huge fan of the "Free" decoration of the beach gazebo so I will be upgrading the decorations, possibly getting an aisle runner and floral aisle markers. I MAY upgrade the flower bouquet, but I dont mind the free one... so we'll see! It's pretty much customizable to whatever you'd like so I think the free package is good unless you really love what the other packages have to offer! :)

thanks for the advice. very helpful! I was wondering though, how do you know what the "free " decorations look like? Is there a website to see how things will look and what the decorations and bouquets are? I would like to see if these are areas I would like to upgrade as well.

ps. Know of any good "beach-appropriate" wedding gown websites?

I just bumped a thread called "Flowers, Photographer Riu OR" that has SO many great photos and so much info for all the new ROR brides, it has pics of the upgrades available and the basic decorations.

This is a pic of the BASIC "free" decoration of the beach gazebo.

I am going to go with something more similar to this one: cheesy.gif

You can email Chandlyn as well and she will send you pics of the basic decorations and a few of the upgrades and costs.

As for beach appropriate wedding gowns, mine is by Venus Bridal, which has quite a few good beachy options, especially in their Pallas Athena and Informals lines - Venus Bridals.

However, check out the thread in the general "Wedding Attire & Rings" section for "Show us Your Wedding Dress"
http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t85, and you will see so many amazing dresses of everyone on this forum it's mind-boggling! smile43.gif

No cost for extra chairs, I asked Chandlyn that one when I first started planning. :)
