Alright everyone. I need you. I have been having so much fun the past few months writing on Soulmoxie, redesigning Soulmoxie, and now finding Soulmoxie a proper home at www.soulmoxie.com. (Exciting, I know). I have one problem. For the life of me, I can not come up with a catchphrase or description for Soulmoxie. She needs a little something to hang right beneath her title. Can you please help me? I'm looking for something short, sweet, clever, witty, cute, or fun that describes this weblog.
To enter the contest, go to www.soulmoxie.com - leave your suggested catchphrase in the Comments section of contest post. One entry per person, please; no entries after Friday, June 6 at 5:00pm Mountain Time. I will announce the winner on Monday morning and hang the catchphrase in my banner where it will forever stay...(at least for the next 6 months).
Winner will receive a $50 Barnes and Noble GiftCard because I'm awesome and I really need a catchphrase. And I'm on a library kick, so I don't need it. So there you have it. I know you can come through for me. Good Luck!
A common reception pick for brides is the Mexican Terrace. It is a terrace off of the mexican restaurant "San Jose". It is tucked over to the side of the Riu Palace grounds and has beautiful views! You can rent the Terrace for your whole reception (6:30 - 11:00) for very reasonably.
Tables and chairs are covered in white for weddings. The tables can be moved for dancing. Gorgeous!
This post is for the brides that are confused about exactly what set up looks like at the Riu Palace.
We chose the gazebo as our ceremony site.
Everything you see (chair covers, flowers, etc) came with the "Royal Package" except for the chocolate brown tulle (chair bows) that I brought down myself. They do have some limited options for chair bows; silver, gold, white, or navy blue. If you don't want any of those you are on your own!
We chose the private area "Baja Norte" for the reception. The palace did all of the set up in the area and moved the bows from the ceremony site. We had 43 people, so decided on 4 round tables of eight, and one long head table for 10. The dancing area would be in the middle of all of the tables. The Tropical flowers from the gazebo were placed on the head table. For centerpieces, I went to Walmart in Cabo (a five minute drive from the Palace) and bought vases, candles and limes. It was simple, but beatiful. I also brought luminary bags and votive candles from home to set up around the perimeter of the reception area. The wedding coordinator did all of the set up.
The tropical flowers are standard with the packages, but you can request colors. I requested only White flowers with foliage.
Regardless of the area at the palace you choose, the set up and options are the same. I hope this helps! Good Luck!
I am thrilled that all of you future Cabo brides are visiting me on my blog. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have about the Riu Palace Hotel, Cabo Photography, Suzanne Morel, or any other activities that my guests and I did. If I can help you with anything, don't hesitate to comment, or e-mail me.
Our photographer Bradley organized this picture gallery as a surprise for us. You can find all of the pictures he took on our wedding day, and order whatever you'd like...Just click here and enter password "brown". I hope you enjoy these as much as we have...
I wanted to write little BIOS about all of our wedding guests before we went to Cabo so everyone would be familiar with everyone else. Due to my procrastination and general laziness this NEVER happened. To make this up to myself, I've decided to do it now. Every couple of days, you can expect a post about some guest who attended the wedding. "Guest" isn't really the right word - these ARE the nearest and dearest to us. If you only want to see the guest updates, just click on Cast & Crew under categories and you should be directed to only those posts.
