      Congratulations! It says isolated thunderstorms. I think that is normal in humid climates. The key word is "isolated". So, I'm guessing it will be nice most of the time. I wouldn't worry about it, but just make sure there is a backup if your ceremony/reception are outdoors.

      Have a great time! Please post pics when you return.

          I'm so excited! I think I have FINALLY decided to go with the Royal PDC...after spending so much time reading up on all the different resorts. What a relief! I haven't picked a date yet, but we are almost there. I'm just waiting for my TA to get back to me.

          I have a couple of random questions:

          1. Does anyone have the menu choices?
          I could be wrong but the menu choices might depend on what package you pick. When we upgraded our package to Luxury from Classic, the food options changed.

          2. Do the guests get a choice of entrees or do we have to pick only one that everyone will have?
          You pick one option for all the guests. The only flexibility is if you have any vegetarian guests.

          3. Did anyone use the live music for the cermony? If so, did you have you have a choice of songs? Were you able to request a song?
          The Luxury Package comes with live music for the ceremony, but by the time we upgraded I had already printed our Programs with our music on it. We decided to have the live music (a guitarist) during the seating of the guests. Our Ipod was used for the processional and recessional.


          SDbeachgirl, hope this helps!

            I wouldn't worry about it; it only rained once the entire week we were there and it was forecasted to rain all week.

              Is anyone planning on having guests stay at the Gran Portal resort (sister resort)? I have some guests that will have kids with them and some guests that may not want to pay the price for the Royal. I'm just wondering is this going to be difficult to have guests at 2 different hotels? For the wedding day I would be covered, but for the rest of the week, I wonder if I wouldn't see the guests over at the Gran Portal very often. I know that I can use their pool for free. Just wondering if that seems weird to pay for the all-inclusive at the Royal and to use the ammenities at the other resort. Are we able to meet up on the beach? Are the beaches right next to eachother. Any thoughts anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

              I was almost 100% decided on the Royal and then started thinking about these details and am a little concerned that I may not see my friends, except for any "planned" outings.

                  Does anyone know how long the ceremonies last? We are having a symbolic ceremony and I'm trying to figure out how long will it be? 15 min? 30 min? If anyone has this answer can you please let me know?

                  Thanks!

                    Our symbolic ceremony was about 15 minutes. We didn't do any 'extras' like the sand ceremony.

                    It looks like most of my guests will be Gran Porto Real as well. My fiancee and I will still be at the Royal. I think it's okay. If we want some quiet time we can just stay on our own at the Royal and we can meet up anytime with our other friends at the Gran. It shouldn't be hard to find them. Just get their room numbers and you should be able to call them from within the resort. You can meet up on the beach and it has been suggested that you tell them to come to the Royal's beach as it is much nicer.

                    The only crappy part is that we have to pay $20 more per guest for the reception if they are not staying at the Royal. Ah well.
