    We saw several weddings while we were there and they looked fabulous. It really put my mind at ease that that Royal was the right choice.

    I have been working with TA Jennifer and she is amazing. I highly recommend using a TA from this forum. She has eliminated a huge amount of stress from dealing with my guests to dealing with the Michigan WC's. I can't say enough how helpful it is to have a TA that specializes in destination weddings and is from this forum.

    Can someone post the Luxury package checklist again? I should probably get going on that.

    Glad to hear it!

    Question: Did you witness any overlapping of weddings (at the same time)? If so, did you notice if they had more than one reception at same time (ie the beach)?

      That reminds me...

      Remember a week or two ago when we all discussed The Royal possibly having more than one wedding at once? (i think someone mentioned hearing music from another reception during another wedding)

      if this is the case, what happens if it rains? They move you inside to the ballroom, but what if there are two? Are there more than one ballroom locations?

        there are multiple ballrooms. they keep one reserved for each wedding in case of weather.

        i had to fight for my beach space, so i will be so sad if i end up in a ballroom anyway! hoping for lots of sunshine and dry weather for all of us!

            the odds of rain are low. even when it does rain in places like PDC, it's usually pretty fast and moves on quickly. i'll be absolutely fine with a little delay, but really (really!) don't want to be moved into a ballroom.

            my ceremony mentions the ocean, sand, waves, etc. several times. it wouldn't be right if we were in an interior room (not to mention the cute shoes i could have found if we weren't on the sand!).

              True, although the rain chances do go up in oct/november. I was there this past October and it rained 2.5 of the 5 days I was there.

              I will just hope for some good weather and remind myself that I am marrying the man of my dreams :-).

                why do i keep forgetting that you're in november? ugh, i'm jealous of all the time you have to get things done (i'm a little crazy busy these days).

                i've said it before and i'll say it again, rings on our fingers and sand in our toes... it's all that matters!

                    So far, I went to PDC 3 times, in July, I got 1 day of rain out of 7 days, it was like 3 hours from noon to 3pm. In Sept, 1 hour of showers in the afternoon for 2 days out of 7 days, and in Oct, I got 2 nights of rain out of 7 days (only at night).

                      so i finally got my final payment in on friday! i e-mailed both my WC and the manager at the royal (thanks LadyDi) and told them i wanted to take care of it that day. my WC responded later that day, saying that she had already sent me the corrected invoice (it showed in her e-mail, but i've been watching my inbox like a hawk and i NEVER received it). so i don't know what happened there. she was extremely short with me, but at least i got my final payment done!

                      so my FSIL e-mailed my WC about a month ago to try to set up spa appointments the morning of the wedding. she never heard back from her until today, when the WC gave her the info of the mexico coordinator. my FSIL e-mailed me, all excited about a new coordinator (she knows my frustrations with the michigan WCs). ha, i hadn't even heard that i'd been assigned a coordinator in mexico yet! what!? haha

                      has anyone had any experience with Denys Maga┬▒a? this is my assigned onsite coordinator. i'm hoping for good things!
                      She is awesome! Just got back and will post my review soon :)
