      You just contact the wedding department...either through the website of the 800 number...not sure they are concerned about which resort you stay at..just mostly where the wedding will be held.

      I originally was staying at Real but my travel agency bumped us up to Royal for no charge, so I called the wedding department (which was MI at the time) and asked if i could stay at Royal and have the wedding at Real...and whoever answered the phone really wasn't sure she had to put me on hold. Then she was like yea i dont see why not but you'll need a day pass- I said no I would be able to go to Real...she was like OH thats right!...and your paying for anyways! I felt like the only person that had asked them that question! Who knows who I talked to there but I really thinking it doesn't matter.

        OK so is the wedding dept the same for both resorts? Also do you know if you have to have a certain number of guests in order to do the beach reception? Is it 20 or more people?
        Thanks :)

            hi ladies, I have a question about a sand ceremony. For those who had one, did you bring your own vases and sand? Did you write your own words or did they have a standard they used? thanks

              No, we had to pay the vendor fee, but even with that $100, it was still way cheaper to go with him for everything. (and he is giving me what I want, which is bouquets with green cymbidium orchids, white cymbidium orchids, white dahlias and green hypercinum berries)

              I wonder if you COULD just pick them up and avoid the fee? We have already paid, but maybe for the rest of you? I think Jesmcan had a great suggestion for a florist as well awhile back?

              Before the MI office closed, I asked this and was told even if I pick the flowers up, I must pay. Lady Di, Congrats on being member of the month!

April 6th 2011... I tried to do a request through the royal website to get someone to contact me about times avail. I only saw that there was only one option for beach location, which was pelicanos, but I heard through here that they have 3 beach locations. The pelicanos is only avail at 1pm which I dont want to do it that early. Does anyone know if they have other beach options that they share with you later? Also I havent got a responce back from anyone yet in order to book. Should I try again or is it just going to take them longer with all the location changes there?

              Also does anyone know if you can have your wedding ceremony and reception on Porto side if you are staying at the Royal? I was just noticing that they have later times over there for ceremony.

              One more thing...Does anyone know how to change your username? Somehow mine was put as my email address..

              I am not using the traditional vases but the picture frame. You can see it here If you do a search on here for sand ceremonies, you will find threads and suggestions for scripts. I'll see if I can find it.

                Playa, I am copying and pasting the scripts. Hope this helps!

                Sand Ceremony #1

                "Before the two of you met, your lives were on separate roads ... each going in different directions and seemingly leading to different destinations. But somewhere along the way (through some twist of fate) you did meet, and you fell in love. Today, you find yourselves standing here together at the threshold of a new path, and have promised to forever join your once separate journeys into one.

                Before each of you there is a container of sand. Each container represents the separate journeys you once were on. They also represent your own sets of friends and families, that until today were apart from each other. I now ask that you blend these individual containers of sand together.

                As the sand has blended together, your lives too are joined. Your once solitary journeys have become one of companionship, as you now set forth on a single path together into your future. Your friends and family are as one as well. You will now share those who are a part of your lives as you walk hand-in-hand

                Sand Ceremony #2

                As you stand beside the ocean, may your love always be as constant as the tide; waves flowing endlessly from the depths of the sea. Just as water is the eternal force of life, so is love. Love is the force that allows us to face fear and uncertainty with courage.

                You have just sealed your relationship by giving and receiving of rings. But although you will be sharing one life, never forget that you are two separate people. Cherish and affirm your differences. Love each other. Keep your commitment primary. Together you will laugh and cry, be sick and well, be happy and angry, share and grow. Grow sometimes together, sometimes separately.

                To symbolize this union and the importance of the individuals within the marriage, two separate colours of sand will be combined. Each one holds its own unique beauty, strength, and character. They can stand on their own and be whole, without need of anything else. However when these two are blended together they create and entirely new and extraordinarily more intricate entity.

                Each grain of sand brings to the mixture a lasting beauty that forever enriches the combination. Please pour the sand into this common container to symbolize the union of your two lives.
                (Begin pouring sand)

                Sarah and Michael, just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual container, so will your marriage be a molding of two individual personalities, bonded together forming one heart, one life, and one family.

                Sand Ceremony #3

                Now we shall celebrate this union as it is symbolized through the pouring of two individual containers of sand. One represents (Bride/Groom) and all that you were, all that you are, and all that you will ever be. The other represents (Groom/Bride) and all that you were and all that you are, and all that you will ever be. As the two vials of sand are poured into the third keepsake vase, the individual containers of sand ceased exist as they are now joined together as one. Just as these grains of sand can never be separated and poured again into the individual vases, so will the love and bond between the two of you render you inseparable.

                Sand Ceremony #4

                Before you met, your lives were on different paths with different destinations. Love has brought you together and joined these separate paths into one.
                The sand in these jars symbolize your separate lives, separate families, separate sets of friends, and the different life journeys you once traveled. I ask that each of you take one of the jars and that you fill the center jar together.

                ~The couple steps forward and takes their individual jars and fills the center jar.~

                With the mixing of these grains of sand you have now symbolically joined your once separate lives. As your two lives have been inseparably combined, so now are your friends and family joined, through you into one. And your once solitary life’s paths are also now one. All that was once separate is now shared and in this sharing you both will find great comfort.

                  Ok so I used the main contact us link from the weddings site. I just asked for a contact person and to confirm my wedding information is in. Well I got an email back from Ana Perez? With all the general information, thank you for contacting us blah blah, then it says like a $200 deposit is required...and provide all this information (which i already had). But the subject of the email did say my last name and fi last name wedding. Which when I sent the original message I did put my full name but not FI...so I'm assuming she found us in the computer. I wrote back asking to confirm my deposit is recorded and the contract...keeping my fingers crossed!

                      Yea there is one wedding department for all Real resorts...whether it is Playa del Carmen or Cancun they handle them all. I'm not sure about the beach reception- I'm only doing a semi private recep because we have over 200 at our AHR when we get back!
