    Thanks girl I'll take your word for it since you contacted to resort directly. There's no telling if I'll ever hear back from my WC.

    Yikes. That's scary to hear about the Royal being booked at PDC. I wonder if Cancun is that same cause that's the weekend of my wedding. I'm calling them now!

      We were told we could do the cake cutting/champagne toast after dinner at the reception. I am definitely all about dessert first, :) but figured we would go the traditional "savory before sweet" route.

        I'm not quite sure what you're asking - if the garnishings literally go on the plate for the plated dinners? Vs. having people get there own? If so, I would only assume that the garnishings go on the plate, like a regular dinner....(if that's what you're asking!)

I was like "uh no we were told we couldn't"....not that i wanted to though....but still!!! Talk about giving me some notice!! So who knows. I think vows are ok, but sand stuff and readings are a no ( unless this has changed since the beginning of May).
          One word of advice though for all brides: I was really stressed about silly things like programs and decorations, table cards etc...but really when you get there they treat you SO WELL and are SOO attentive towards you. EVERYTHING is taken care of right away. All my worries were immediately eased. I was able to call my WC anytime while i was there OR go see her in her office. It was terrific! (Michelle was my WC) She ROCKED - actually even before the wedding i never had trouble hearing back from her.

          The legal ceremony went like this:
          Judge does an introduction - she said a nice reading from a Mexican poet or something like that. then she did vows. Then we did rings ( kinda similar vows) then we signed the marriage certificate and did our thumbprints. Then we kissed. And it was over!
          Its really quick but really nice. I ended up not doing programs ( mainly b.c i ran out of time and realized that I was getting married in Mexico - so who really cares?!) But then b/c of the swine flu half our guests canceled the day before we were leaving and half of the wedding party had to cancel too. So i
          am SO glad i didn't waste my time with them. LOL.
          If anyone wants the name of that Mexican poet i can watch my video and try to get his name. PM if you want more info too!
          Thanks!

          Did you ask if you could do the sand ceremony, or were you not interested in that?

          That would be too bad, we were looking to do sand....

              does anybody know if they have lighting for the beach reception? Zulma sent me pics of the reception set up and they had lights under the tables. . . really neat! But no other past Royal bride has lit up tables in her pics and lights aren't in the checklist. thanks

                I was told that basic lighting is available for the beach receptions (ie tiki torches, under table lighting & centerpeices). Anything else you would be on your own.

                  I have seen other brides pictures that have that.. google royal beach reception and look under images.. a lot of those are picture albums and if you browse through them you will see the lights under the tables. I just wasn't sure if they were standard decorations or if those people paid extra for them. Did Zulma say?

                    Yeah, Zulma said they were standard but I just wasnt seeing them on BDW bride pics. Maybe I just didn't look hard enough. Thanks ladies!

                      i'm at the gran porto for the weekend of may 15th. last i heard about it from my WC was that the rooms are almost gone (this was about 2 weeks ago) and that any reservations for the junior suites had to be 5 days or more. if it's not sold out yet, it definitely will be soon. i sent out a message to all my "on the fence" guests that the rooms are booking fast.

                      i think it's pretty common for these resorts to book solid during wedding season. i'm crossing my fingers for all of us that we don't get bumped!!
