    Shay, I jsut realized - we will be down in Mexico at the same time! I am leaving though either on the 5th or 6th. We should hook up at some point!
    **Shannon** 40 people BOOKED! (but only 23 made it b/c of the Swine flu Pandemic )

      I know...I totally miss posting on OUR forum!! So...I had to bump it.

      Where'd you find your dress? What does it look like?! How exciting!!

      Our group will arrive May 3rd (Sunday)...our wedding in on Thursday the 7th. The 4th, 5th or 6th...we should totally try to meet up. GAH!! How exciting!

      I have some improved STD boarding pass pics too...that I haven't updated yet...here, I'll attach a picture just for you (I haven't signed up for photobucket yet, so PDF will just have to do)!! and then I'll go update the boarding pass section!

      i just read all 22 pages on this forum, phew!! that's a lot of time! :) Does anyone know yet conclusively what the cost would be to bring in an outside vendor (photographer)? Also does the lounge furniture count as an "outside vendor". This is driving me insane, everywhere i read about is now saying no outside vendors or that you have to pay hundreds of dollars for them or put them up for 3 nights!

      Not to mention rising prices of wedding packages! I guess i'm freaking out because i waited so long to pick a place, which I haven't even decided conclusively on The Royal but have had it recommended to me by so many people!

        I hear ya sister! The costs of things are just...ridiculous...

        I'm so glad we booked when we did...cause I hear those airfares are still going up and up! Hopefully it doesn't get you too bad.

        As for the outside vendors...I believe ANY vendor at this point that is offering you a service that the hotel COULD...is considered an outside vendor. You will have to verify that with your wedding coordinator, but for the furniture, I don't believe the hotel offers this service, therefore it should not be considered as such...however, they may charge you for a pass for the people to set up the furniture?!

        We have to pay a $100 fee per person for outside vendors. We are having one photographer, and her assistant, so we'll pay $200 extra for that day. I think it is fuckin crazy...especially because the wedding packages and virtually tripled in price within the last six months...Anymore, and I fear I won't be able to save enough...I'm already stretching our budget, you know?!

        Good luck to you and if you have anymore questions...let us know!

          I WAS TOTALLY RELIEVED! We had put a $1500.00 deposit down for Elizabeth Medina, which I think will be totally worth it, but I certainly didn't want to lose that deposit because of a stupid rule change. August 9th is coming up very quick. I remember when It was fall and it seemed so far away and now it is more like.....HOLY CRAP! I better start getting a list together so I don't forget anything.

          We are having a symbolic ceremony in Mexico. We are going to the courthouse at 8-8-08 and doing the legal thing. After the courthouse, we are going out to dinner with all the people who are leaving on Saturday with us (half of our guests are coming out Wednesday). We all decided to stay at a hotel by the airport that Friday night because they will let you leave your car there while you are gone and they will shuttle you to the airport for free. It ended up costing less than parking our car for all that time and it was much more convenient since our flight takes off at 7:00 am!

            That is really awesome Sarah! I'm so excited for you...

            My FI and I haven't set any dates or plans for the legal marriage here yet...but I'm thinking we'll looking into the marriage license after Christmas, and get hitched sometime shortly before our Mexican departure as well! It's all so damn exciting.

            I hope you come back with a review of how everything goes! I can't wait to read it and see pictures!

            Good luck again, not that you'll need it, and...great idea about the hotel man! Super smart!

              Hey guys,

              Just a quick update... with the Royal's prices on their wedding packages constantly changing... and getting more expensive... I asked Zulma how much it would cost for a symbolic wedding and she said $1000 .. and this is what that package includes:

              Complimentary room up grade (subject to availability upon check-in)
              Wedding coordinator provided by the hotel
              Marriage ceremony performed by a non denomination Christ Minister in English
              Decorated wedding ceremony location
              C.D. music player – our music or bring your own
              Fresh floral Bridal Bouquet
              Groom’s boutonniere
              2 bottles of sparkling wine to toast after ceremony
              Wedding cake (15 people)
              Marriage certificate
              Fruit basket and bottle of sparkling wine in your room
              Guaranteed king size bed
              Late check-out for the couple (5:00 pm)

              I hope that whoever will be marrying us won't have a problem reading the ceremony that I have put together (kinda long) ... we're including the hand ceremony and a few things that I have picked up here

              We'll be doing all the legal stuff once we get back home since it will be so much cheaper and more convenient. .... only 4 more months!

                Hi ladies! I'm on the books at Royal PDC for April of '09 and I want to go ahead and pay in advance, but Paty Ulloa and Micaela want me to wait until the '09 prices are in place... I work in the hotel industry as well & when we book something before a price increase- we have to give the rate when it was booked!!! Any one else feeling me on this one?

                Also, you '09 brides, have you already booked hotel & flight? I've already got flight taken care of, but FI wants to wait until the prices go down at the hotel- I'm afraid that they wont go down- just UP! Any thoughts on this one too?

                  Here in Canada, typically we book everything, hotel; airfare; etc., as one package through a holiday provider. We are going through Air Canada Vacations, and have submitted our deposits on the whole thing.

                  Micaela has assured me that they will honor any prices that are in effect at the time they begin corresonding with a bride, so I'm not worried anymore about price increases (as far as packages and such). Hopefully it is the same with you.

                  Happy planning.

                    (Well I've been so busy lately I haven't had much time to be on this site. So I've just been reading it all and catching up.) Our pricing for our wedding is from January 2008; (they are honoring their pricing from then). And Micaela didn't seem to care when I mentioned we were looking at outside photographers (we decided to go with the resort photography cause everyone else is already booked!!). We're leaving on the 29th of November out of Vancouver for two weeks. I'm getting so excited!!! The only problems I've been having is trying to get our Birth Certificates translated and legalized!!!! And, I guess this is kinda crazy, but I haven't even looked for a dress or BM dresses yet!! Yikes! I'd better get on it!!!
