    I am using Marvin from .::: Maya Dise±o Floral Profesional :::. Flores y Plantas Ex³ticas His prices are reasonable so far.

    I am interested to know about the music at the ceremony! Can you let us know when you get the answer?

      This is my first post. It has taken me almost a month, but I think I have finally read through all the posts! I wanted to make sure I did not ask questions that may have already been answered several times, lol. This forum, and the ladies on it, have been so helpful! I initially wanted to do a DW so I would not have to plan anything, doesn't seem to be the case! My FI and I are from different religious backgrounds so we are having a religious cermony of three hundred guests in Vancouver, and aprox 35-50 guests in Playa. I went from not wanting to plan a wedding to having to plan two weddings! To add to that, we too have had to change our wedding date from April 2011 to Nov 2010 due to price difference for our guests. I'm sure you can imagine that mad scramble I'm going through now trying to plan two weddings in seven months!

      I have stayed at the Royal before so am familiar with ground layout, etc. Some of the questions I do have:

      1. Re lounge furniture - I saw a post that mentioned that they used the Royal's for $250-300. I was initially going to rent mine from another outfit that charged aprox $2000 (used by several other posters). Can someone give me more info about the Royal's lounge furniture and how it compares.

      2. Re DJ - does the Royal use DJ Doremixx? If so, is it cheaper to book him privately, even while paying the $350 vendor fee

      3. I have not received any communication from an WCs. Everything was booked through a travel agent. Is this normal?

      4. I'm in the same boat as many other ladies - the Luxury Package is what I initially was going to go for, but there are alot of services - mani/pedi, hair/makeup, photo, etc, that I will not use - are we still able to book a four course private reception?

      Lastly, I have not posted enough to open the attachments. Can someone be kind enough to email the wedding and price checklist, and this cake list that everyone is talking about, lol. srn_luna@hotmail.com

      Thanks a bunch ladies!
      If I were you, I would call the Michigan office and/or go online to submit your info through their wedding site. I did this after we changed travel agents and someone contacted me.

      Last I heard, if you wanted to use Ivan with Doremixx, you HAD to book through The Royal. When we booked him, he told me that anyone in the future had to go through the resort, per The Royal. Maybe thats changed in the past few months though??

      Good Luck with everything!

          Pricing starts at $175 per set and delivery will be on top of that. they can also have made pillows in your colors- pillows will range from$15-30 depending on sizing and fabric.they also offer rentals and complete wedding coordination

          1 set are 2 sofas, 2 ottomans y 1 table you can seat about 8-12 people depending on size of people and how you are using them. Delivery would be $75 usd. We can also have pillows made in your colors. Pillows range from $15-40 depending on size and material.

              Hmm I dont think asking for a playlist is unreasonable. I mean, I understand not wanting to play something you are unfamiliar with, but come on, I'm sure we all want a say in what is played at OUR OWN (OUT OF OUR OWN POCKETS) wedding. I kinda feel this way about the legal ceremony and not being able to have sand ceremony. :-(

                2Mckee and others - I sent Zulma what I wanted played at the ceremony. I am doing Ave Maria and I was able to find a clip on solo guitarist which is what we are doing for our ceremony. I did not have an issue sending them this.

                Marvin from Maya Diseno is great there is also Euphoria Eventos Y Arte Floral Euforia Cancun Wedding Planner - Outdoor Events and Lighting Design They are a bit pricier but do amazing work

                    We can't do the sand ceremony for a legal ceremony!! WTF! Did they give you a reason why? Do you know if that means we can't add a reading/poem either?

                      for those recently married or with dates coming up soon, when did you make your final payment? i thought they were due 45 days out but i haven't seen or heard anything about it yet. i got my checklist in a week ago along with entree selections and a guest list, but haven't heard anything back. i just sent another e-mail, but i'm curious about when i'm supposed to make the payment. thanks!
