It’s important that when you first get in touch with us you let us know your priorities such as at what time of the day you want the event to take place or if you wish to have a private dinner afterwards.

    1. Pick every detail

Upon your arrival at the hotel, you will be welcomed by our commercial department with whom you will be able to finalize the details of your wedding. It’s important to choose carefully the music that will accompany you on your way to the altar, the cake you will eat, the hairdresser’s schedule and, especially, the bride’s bouquet.

As we mentioned before, you won’t have to worry about anything because you will be in contact with your wedding planner at all times. The wedding planner will take care of any questions or needs that may arise during the whole process.

    1. The big day

Once we have all the details all you have to do is enjoy your big day! A RIU staff member will pick up the bride to take her to the spa/beauty salon where she can get ready to say “I do”. Afterwards, we will take the first photographs, both at the ceremony site and at a few locations of the resort.

Ideally, the ceremony should start at sunset, at 5:30 pm. After this symbolic act, you will make a toast with which you will be definitively united in marriage.

But that’s not all! If you also want it to be a surprise, you can propose to your partner at our hotel. How? By filling one of the pools in the overwater rooms with rose petals with the message “Will you marry me”? Everything else will be ready!
