        THANKS!
        Just the buffets are casual, when we went for our site visit none of the guys had sneakers so I would say no. Jeans and pants, but my FI is doing loafers and boat shoes to be more comfortable. Hope that helps.

          I have a TA that's doing individual booking and some guests are booking online.

Do your research and see if the SS, DMW and your company will accept translated marriage certificate if you want to change your last name.

          We are just going to get our marriage certificate translated then leave it alone. We are married. Nobody can tell us that we are not.
          That's right Di!!!!! This does suck! Once you get it translated, will they change your name in your county?

My idea is to have cards at each table (one pink, one blue) to distinguish which entree they want. Chicken can be pink and beef blue. Of course I would give the Royal a count ahead of time, but then the servers will know who gets what and I do not have to force everyone into a seating chart. What do you think of this, would it work? Or is it not a good idea? Also, how many per table? I thought 6 but since I'm WC-less right now I couldn't verify.
          RunningBride,
          You could buy the little colored circle/seals and put them on the placecards. You don't have to put the table numbers on them. That way the guests can just pick them up and place them wherever they sit. The pink and blue cards should work too. Before she left, my WC suggested 8 to a table to avoid being cramped. One of the previous brides could probably answer this.

            So, occasionally I look at The Royal PDC on Tripadvisor to see what people are saying. A few of the recent posts were complaining of all of the weddings/receptions and called it a wedding factory. One person even complained about all of the loud guests from Texas. I was thinking-I know whose party that was! LOL! I love it! We Royal Brides Rock!!!!!

              I'm sure this question was already asked, but I can't locate it.

              For you brides that have been recently married, did you do symbolic...did it appear real? And did anyone ask about signing the certificate or anything? I'm worried our guests will find out and I don't want FI parents to be upset. My parents already know.

              And I'm sooo happy with my cordinator so far! I've had more correspondence with her in the past 2 days then I had with Carole in 5 months! LOL I think things are looking up since the move!

                Haha, that wasn't our party! Most of our guests stayed at Gran. Hehe.

                  mrs. yak to-be -
                  i did the symbolic, and there is nothing that makes it any different from a regular wedding back at home. the only thing missing was the fingerprints, but i've never seen anyone do that at home! it's as real as it is to you and your FI!

                  running bride -
                  i did a similar thing. i had mini pails with names and colored mini-umbrellas to signify the guests' entree selections. guests just grabbed their pails and sat where ever they wanted, and the wait staff was still able to see their entree selection. definitely no seating chart needed if you don't want one! ha, we did, however, have to re-arrange the umbrellas in guest's little pails. the wind, apparently, had blown the umbrellas out of the buckets and then got mixed up when replaced. good thing our party was small and i could remember pretty much what everyone had chosen! for those i couldn't remember, i just checked with the guests and let everyone know to make sure they had the right umbrella color!

                    You can't tell any difference at all. If asked, just say you had to complete the paperwork beforehand. In most US weddings, the license isn't signed during the ceremony anyway, it is done afterwards and usually just with the minister and witnesses. The biggest problem you have is making sure the people that DO know, don't blab it to anyone at all. Keeping that a secret then having someone accidentally find out after they have paid a lot of money to get there doesn't sit well (has happened to one of our couples!). Much better just to be up front about it if there is any likelihood that too many people know 'the truth' and might let it slip. :)

                      Did she initiate the communication or had you emailed them before? (just curious because i haven't heard anything yet )

                      LOL @ loud guests from Texas. I do actually feel bad for non-wedding guests at the resort. one of my favorites things to do at night is go on the beach (usually no one there) and sit in a hammock or lounge chair and listen to the waves and relax. The Royal SHOULD scale back (some resorts like Secrets will ONLY have one wedding a day), but I guess they can and will continue to triple book since we all keep signing up like wildfire ;-)
