Having one choice of beef is just not what we want to do.. We tasted everything and it was all very good. I was impressed. Im doing ivan gomez and since we booked him before the prices changed we will be paying the same amount as before. We are doing to ult luxary package and just sent my save the dates out and we invited 300 people soo we might be in trouble haha
    WOW! 300ppl, that would truly be awesome :-) We've got 120(ish) on the guest list and counting so we'll see...

    For those of you doing more than one meal choice for your guests, do you think that we have to give an EXACT seating chart or more of a "Uncle Bob at Table 3 wants beef" sort of thing. I'd like to assign tables but not force ppl into certain seats. I've seen weddings where each meal has a different sticker or color on the seating card.

    Also, if you haven't yet, check out Matt Adcock's post on the Playa construction. It looks like this could make the beaches even better...I'm hoping this is a good thing :-)

      I was looking at the resort's webcam and you can actually see it going on (well, one day they had the Royal and Gran Porto's webcams backwards)

        Ladies,
        Is anyone doing a cocktail hour before the reception or are you just going straight into the reception.
        Thanks!

          I definitely plan to do a cocktail hour...if you're doing the Luxury Package, it's actually included for up to 35ppl. We're having our ceremony in the gazebo and then doing the cocktail in the garden just outside of the gazebo.

            i am doing the same. we are having our ceremony in the gazebo, taking an hour or so to do pictures, then meeting back for a cocktail hour at the garden by the gazebo before heading into the reception in the ballroom.

              Having the cocktail before the reception because it's included in the package...

                I'm in the midst of trying to figure out what time I want the photographer to be there prior to the ceremony. I just saw this post and saw that you are booking your guy for eight hours. Ideally I would like to have him taking pics of me getting my hair and makeup done etc... but I don't want him to get there too early where he's just not taking any really good shots. What time have you asked him to arrive? Also, what time is your ceremony?


                Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

                  Hi we are doing a cocktail hour before the reception. It is a good chance to talk with guests or do your pics.

                    OK, I just got in contact with the new WC. It looks like it's the same as Jesmcan - Julie. Her e-mail is
                    I emailed the document to you guys. As you know that you need to post at least 150 posts in order to open any documents on the forum. :)

                    boolo, that's right. Kimberly left. She was my WC as well. I have no idea who will be my WC.

To say the least, I had a short "freak out" moment. The woman I spoke to took my name and info and said she would have my new coordinator contact me!

                      Can you (or anyone else) verify this information!!! I feel so lost!

                      Hi ladies!
                      For those of you who had Kimberly R as your WC, like I did, and haven't heard from anyone there, here is Carole's (the manager) email
                      hi ladies! my wedding date is set for june 10, 2010 at the royal PDC and i am doing the luxury pkg..

                      do we have to pick only one menu option for our guests, or can we pick 2 or 3 options and ask our guests and just keep track of who wants what?

                      also, is everyone getting a DJ for their reception? I was just going to use my Ipod to try to save some cost, is anyone doing that or is everyone hiring a DJ?!
                      Congrats kenlyn!! I'll be there till June 10th so I'd love to meet up w/you and Stephanie for a drink, if you'll be there before then!

                      From what I remember on here awhile back, you can do either of the meal options you suggested, but they said you will have to keep up w/who wants what if you want to do different ones for each person.

                      We're just doing the iPod thing. Its better for our budget, and both FI and I are way into music so we've put together a fantastic playlist of completely untraditional stuff to play from the beginning of the ceremony till the end of the reception. It was really fun to do together, too. I'm going to post my playlist on here: http://bestdestinati....l-music-49407/ as soon as we wittle it down some more.
