    Hi Lady Di,

    what etsy seller are you using for the bouquets? I think it blows they are wanting to charge us $60 per bridesmaid bouquet and also $60 for flower centerpieces!! will you be shipping them to mexico directly?

    I think I might also wander around the town and see if they have a local florist that would be cheaper.. Anyone know if the royal would charge us $100 vendor fee if we have an outside florist come drop off flowers for the ceremony and reception?

      Thanks Lady_Di. Are you having your bridal party sit with you? Or with their spouses? We are having 4 bridesmaids and 4 groomsmen. So with us, we would fit at a table then. But including their spouses and significant others, I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas?

        I asked Angie about different entrees and she said we could offer our guests 2 entrees, but we would have to let the resort know 2 mos in advance and have some sort of designation (place card) so the servers would know who ordered what.

          Lady Di,

          I also have 7 bridesmaids and I seriously do not want to spend over $400 for flowers for them. I saw the real touch bouquets in multiple spots, but how are you getting them there? I'm afraid they will be too fragile to throw into a suitcase. I guess I could ship them. What is your plan?

          Yes and the flowers wilted pretty fast at my wedding with the heat!

              Hi Ladies,

              So for tables the most you can have is 10 seats. However on our site visit Zulma suggested only 8 to a table. We went and looked at the tables and they are very tight if you go over 8.

              You can do a table for two for just the bride and the groom.

              So for the ceremony Lady Di not sure again another thing that seems to change all the time. I was told 30 minutes but you may be right on the 15 I think its just something we will have to figure out once we get there.

              They also told us on our site visit you can have two options for food as long as you color coordinate the place cards just to reiterate what was said above.

              Unfortunetly I was told to bring an outside florist you do have to pay the $100 fee even if it's just for the bouquets. The closest actual flower market is in Cancun. However right down the street at the Mega Mart they have a flower section. They had beautiful lillys and stuff. But its taking the risk like you would of any grocery store to see what they have that day and than coordinating the pick up. Could be stressful.

              I decided to do parasols for the bridesmaids and I am going to be the only one with a bouquet. I agree the price is outrageaous. Not to mention in that heat they won't really last.

              For the newbies here is the pictures from my site visit,

              You will see pictures of the basic setup for the tables which I personally thought looks beautiful. And also in teh basic setup one hurricane for each table is inlcuded. Sorry don't mind the other pics in there from our trip.

                Thanks for all the info ladies. Jesmcan, do we need an account to view your pictures? Sorry, i'm not very familiar with shutterfly, but it asked for a password. I'm assuming i need to create an account?

                  oh wow, i didn't know that the tables can fit 8 comfortably...more centerpieces. heh.

                  ok, two food options, does that mean only main course?

                    ahahah I like the sneaky laugh about the center pieces lol

                    Yes its only two food options for the main course. Also though by the way they do a vegetarian dish. You just let your WC how many vegetarians and than note it on the place card.
