Wedding at Riu Caribe, Cancun, Mexico

Hi guys

We are in the process of planning our wedding at the Riu Caribe in April 2014.

Has anybody else been married there that could forward on some advice??

Thank you so much

Eve

I havent had a wedding there but seen several. You will have no privacy if that matters to you. The reverse of that if you want attention you will get plenty from other guest, you will get it.

The outside ceremony will be at the gazebo which happens to be next to the kids pool and the restroom which will get traffic from other guest and there is a chance to have a kid running through or hear the music from the pool.

If you have the ceremony inside you can use the theater which is air conditioned and more private, but may defeat you dream of a tropical wedding.

I am in the middle of planning for November 2014... not having much luck with what I was told from Mina. Are any of you doing a reception/dance. Would love to hear what you are doing.

Hello there...hope you all doing well!

We booked our Wedding with Thomson and we will be traveling from Scotland.

So far everything looks ok...the dates has been confirmed (we are getting married on the beach) and we got our wedding coordinator's e-mail address so we can message him any time we want.

They also told us that usually the couples are contacted a two months before the ceremony as this is enough time the coordinator needs to prepare the details for the wedding.

However we can contact him anytime we need his help.

I dont know anyone who actually got married over there thats why Im looking for some tips...in case something goes wrong :-(

Jill...do you know what legal documents you need to take with you?

We've been told that they would only need our passports and Birth certificates are not requiered.

We are not having a wedding reception-just dinner for two after the ceremony.

Thanks a lot xxx

he everyone,

my fiancee and i are getting married at the Riu Caribe in april 2014 and cant wait.

we're not all that religeous or anything so a destination wedding is ideal for us and the Riu fits the bill.

i hope you are all getting on really well with your planning etc

as for pics of previous weddings i have only found 1 which can be found here:

juanphotos.com/blog/…

if you have any questions that i might be able to help with please let me know

Hi I am in the middle of planning my wedding for November 2014 as well. What I was told would be offered from Mina is way different then when I actually booked with the wedding planner.... I am in the middle of trying to plan a reception/dance also. I picked this resort as I was told I could have a private reception on the beach which changed once I stared working with the planner. How are your plans going??
