Hi! I can’t be of much help I’m afraid. I also looked at the Riu Palace Peninsula but ended up chosing Secrets The Vine, not to far on the Cancun strip : )

We’re also getting married at 4 o’clock, and opted for the dinner reception outside by the pool. It’s always quite windy in Cancun so keep that in mind in your choice. I don’t mind! I have often had dinner outside in Cancun and it was nice despite the wind. But do prepare to be hot. The breeze does help alot at night though. We have 30 guests coming.

I haven’t met any Secrets The Vine brides either and it’s hard to plan isn’t it? Good luck finding the info!

MissBoots:  Mine is a 4pm wedding too! I saw on tripadvisor there is a review from the couple that had the first wedding there when it opened up. They were happy with the on site photographers but they postes some pics and i was not impressed 🙁 i really like del sol photography but they are $3000 and im trying to spend less than that. 

Im wondering if we have to pay extra for a reception or what the deal is. I feel like i dont know anything yet. im gonna have about 40ppl there and cant wait. Keep me posted with any news.

I am so excited I found this blog, I am getting married at 4 p.m. as well at the Riu Palace Peninsula July 2015 it’s been extremely difficult getting any detailed info from the resort but I have been in contact with Soray and she is very prompt however she is not the WC, Magaly is the WC for that resort. I sent her an email and I have not heard from her yet, I guest they are trully waiting for the 2 months mark to reach out to me. I have been pulling my hair….lol

I did get some pipctures from another bride that got married a year ago from a different blog, she also had the wedding outdoors which is what i am planning. I was told that you have to have a minimum of 40 poeple to have the wedding outdoors and sice I only have 30 I will ahve to still pay for 40 people. I will keep you posted.

I also read that the reason for the lack of communication is because nothing is set in stone or even actually plan until you meet with the WC at the resort in which at that time they take care of everything and supposedly the process is about an hour.

MissBoots thank you for your response, I’m also going with the onsite photographers and DJ, since I’m trying to keep cost down. I emailed Magaly but she has not yet responded to me. I guess I’m worried because I am not sure if I have to pay for the royal package and then pay the $80 per person for my outdoors reception and I also I am not sure if I will even get to have my reception outside, What if someone else already have that plan for my date? I’m just a bit stress about that, I wish I can get that guarantee from them and also a clearer explanation for the prices so I have an idea how much this whole thing will cost me.

MissBoots:  I am thinking the same thing, I guess I may have to think about other options just in case someone else already have that slot. That’s why I wanted to confirm this with Magaly ahead of time, well hopefully it all turns out ok. Please post your experience after your wedding to ease our minds….of course when you get a chance after you return😊. I hope you have a fabulous wedding.
