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!
