Riu Palace Riviera Maya - Weddings

Thinking of booking a wedding here with Thomsons travel agents - can anyone tell me if the Riu packages consist of real flowers for the bridal bouquet? I have heard suggestions that they may be silk flowers so if anyone can confirm either way it would be appreciated! Any other info on the decoration of the wedding gazebo etc would be most welcome.

Hiya,

Got married at the Riu Palace Mexico last year. The bridal bouquet is real flowers. As for decoration of the wedding site it depends what wedding package you go for. We chose the best package (caprice I think) and they used real flowers but I think the other packages are silk flowers but you can pay extra to have real ones.

Check out the riu wedding website - www.weddingsbyriu.com for loads of information. We also booked the wedding via this site as found it cheaper than going through Thomsons.

Thanks for all that, much appreciated! Can you also give any advice on photography packages? Did you book yours once at the hotel, and what kind of thing is on offer?

hi flowermoon we were in the palace in jan and watched a couple of weddings in the gazebo very nice and not over long though one couple did have to ask some people in the pool to be quite for 30 mins. We will be back in june and wanted to renew our vows (25 years) but could not get the date .It was aprox £200 cheaper to go via riu than Thomsons and the wedding co ordinator is based in the maya palace

You can book the photographer while at the hotel. When you meet the wedding co-ordinator she will show you examples of their work. Also when you book they will email you a frequently asked questions document that has the options on for photographs and the prices.

There is quite a lot of options in terms of how many photo's you have and you can also book a dvd if you want.
