    Don't know if this has been addresssed in this thread yet, but does the Royal/Gran allow us to bring our own linens? Or use an off-site wedding coordinator to bring in flowers, linens, lighting, etc? I thought I saw that we need to pay $100 per vendor not from their resorts...

    Or do you ladies know if the resort has other linens available besides white?

      I just looked at the wedding checklist Angie sent me and it says Colour table linen is 25 USD and coloured chair ribbons are 5 USD. Nothing about colour choices though.

        I am bringing table runners to the resort. The WC said we can bring our linens.

That's a good idea Jen, saying we signed the certificate the day before...that's what I'm going with too!!

          One other question, has anyone found out when you do the wedding at home, is there a way not to do the vows and ring exchange? I literally want to go to city hall sign paperwork and say OK now we're married, but I'm not sure if that is legal...I guess I could call city hall and find out.
          I have been looking up exactly what we are going to have to do and here in Nova Scotia all you have to do is this....

          "No particular form of ceremony is required in a marriage that is solemnized by a judge or a justice of the peace designated by the Minister except that in some part of the ceremony, in the presence of the judge or justice and witnesses, each of the parties shall declare

          I do solemnly declare that I do not know of any lawful impediment why I, A.B ., may not be joined in matrimony to C.D .

          and each of the parties shall say to the other

          I call upon all persons present to witness that I, A.B ., do take thee, C.D ., to be my lawful wedded (wife or husband)

          after which the judge or justice shall say

          By virtue of the authority vested in me by the Solemnization of Marriage Act , I hereby pronounce you, A.B . and C.D ., to be husband and wife"




          So I would look up your own local Marriage act but it should be similar which means you will indeed be able to just say "ok we are married" and sign paper work. hahaha

          :)

            Thanks for the info, ladies! I think I'll end up bringing runners at least. Since there are so few anticipated guests, it might be worth just bringing my own to get the look i want.

              Thank you very much for that Jen. I will look up our Marriage act in our area and hopefully it is the same!

                As TA Jennifer mentioned, suppliers almost always include transfers and if not I let my clients know right away. In most cases, everyone takes the transfers so I just include them and deduct them out if the couple tells me they want to do a private transfer.

                You may want to check into some transfer companies for prices, such as cancun transfers or lomas travel. I got prices from Lomas this morning to the royal pdc and I want to say it was around $45 per person, round trip. They also have options that accomodate more people, and the cost isn't per person, it's just one set fee for the vehicle.

We have one family of 5 people and you mean to tell me it will cost them $400 to get to the airport and back? That seems CRAZY!!

                    We have people coming in different days and times - I wonder if I should just tell everyone to get a taxi, that it's much cheaper?

                    What are you guys all doing?
                    WHAT!! that is insane our TA quoted us $30 pp round trip. And if we did a bus for 24 it as like $230. Something is not right there. I would look into my ow travel. Try Best Day and Lomas Travel. The more people in one van the less expensive.

                      I have been quoted $100 (multiple times) per outside vendor.
