    Yea yesterday, when I called it kept just ringing. So I called the 1800 number, and recieved a message that there computers where down yesterday so then closed early...

    Definitly call tomorrow. Suzanna was very nice and couldn't apologize more. We'll just see if I get the contract!! I'm sure I will.

      I also talked to Suzanna yesterday. She had sent me an email last week apologizing for not getting back to me sooner. However, she never responded after I replied. So I am just getting in the habit of calling when I have questions rather than emailing. She will normally respond in an email to all of my questions while we are on the phone to make sure I get everything in writing. I highly recommend calling. You may have to wait on hold for a little bit, but it is definitely worth it.

        I'm living in West Africa so calling is tough but I'll try, thanks. At one point we were told the same thing about flowers - they can do it based on color.

        Is anyone else worried about overbooking at the Royal? I know they are sold out the whole weekend of our wedding (April 17), as is the Grand Porto, so I'm a bit nervous.

        And does anyone have a copy of what type of events the Royal offers each night? I have been trying to track that down for months...

          I tried to book a site visit at the Royal starting April 24 and the Royal is totally booked the 24th. We ended up at the Gran for that night and then at the Royal for 3. I checked with TA Jennifer about the availability for the weekend before our wedding in June and there are still rooms but not a ton of them. It's certainly something I'm going to watch.

            The Royal is extremely popular and we are hearing that many weekends are sold out or close it it this spring- I do have to note that our suppliers(for TA Jennifer & TA Jill) have a guaranteed no bump policy!

            Please note that the online agencies do not have the same policy so please warn your guests that it could be a possibility- and it is likely if the resort is oversold that the guest will be responsible for transportation and also a day pass fee ( it is the online agencies that are overselling their allotted inventory-not the resort -therefor the resort is not responsible!!)

            Just a heads up on this!

              That is good to know, Jennifer! I was going to email you and ask you about the bumping issue at the Royal.

                Hi Everyone,
                I was just wondering how all of you are paying for your photographers/videographers that you are bringing in. My videographer wants cash upfront when he arrives (Mike Cantarell). I guess this just worries me a bit. Any advice?
                yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

                  Question ladies: For a symbolic ceremony, you go through the entire wedding as if you are getting married correct? Do you still sign anything afterwards?

                  I'm having second thoughts and thinking of do the legal stuff here (if the city hall here doesn't make you say the vows- I just basically want to go to city hall sign the paperwork, get on the plane and off we go) the thing is we are only telling our parents and no one else. Im nervous about people finding out during the ceremony we are already married. Does anyone know how real it appears doing just symbolic?

                  I would appreciate any advice on this....

                    We are doing the same thing. I really think that it is much like the real thing, however, I dont think you have to sign anything which is usually part of the ceremony. We are only telling my parents (FI's wont even know) about getting married before. It is something we thought about for a long time but in the end it was better for us. If you are worried about people knowing I don't think anyone will know. Good luck!

                      We are doing the same thing. I also worry about anyone finding out, but I have been reassured that no one will know the difference. This is because you can request the ceremony to be exactly the same. We aren't even telling our parents, as we are getting my fiance's coworkers to witness for us at home. If any one asks we are going to say that we signed the certificate earlier that day (I heard that when there are alot of weddings, that can happen anyway, so the WC's can get the legal paperwork done). So pretty much we are going to deny, deny, deny, so much so that we will probably have convinced ourselves as well. hahaha.
