    jcooper, yeah, we got two copies!

    runningbride, can you ask your WC? I was mistaken that it is $70 total. It is $70 per page. Yikes.

      LadyDi does it have to be translated by an official or notary and can anyone do it for you that is fluent in Spanish?

      Also for your ceremony how many chairs per row did you have?

        It was windy but very nice, my veil had beading on it which helped. I think it is ok to wear a veil if its not to "lightweight"

        I am getting married 12/3 at The Royal (Mayan ceremony on the beach by Pelicanos, followed by cocktail hour & then reception on the beach) and I am really glad that I found this site. Thanks everyone for posting tons of helpful information and specific info about your weddings.

        I have a few questions and of course it's a bit hard to get answers from my WC, who thanks to you i just learned moved to mexico! ha!

        Lighting for the reception (it will be dark out by that time). What is anyone's experience with lighting? In the del Sol photos I've seen tables that light up different colors. Is that standard? Is there a fee for that? I would love to have that! Does the hotel supply that? What other lighting is available? I was thinking of bringing some cool string lights, is that necessary or do they provide other lighting?

        Undertable lighting, candles on the table and tiki torches are included. The dance floor also provides a lot of light. It was perfect. I wouldn't add any.

        Music for reception - Does anyone have experience with bringing an Ipod loaded with music and using that for the reception? Does the hotel provide a sound system/speakers and is there a charge for that? I am thinking of getting the Mexican trio for the cocktail hour and then using an Ipod, as I'm not a huge fan on DJs. Is there someone available from the staff that can make sure the Ipod is running?

        The hotel has a sound system they let you use for the ceremony-reception. They run it for you. No charge for the system. I used an IPOD for the ceremony and reception and did the mexican trio for the cocktail hour (which my guests loved). I am upset that there was a short in the cord they used to connect my IPOD and the sound cut out during my ceremony (I will explain in detail in my review) but otherwise it went well.

        Hi! Does anyone have a formal statement from the hotel regarding the dress code that I see mentioned here (but was never told by my WC or on the website!)? Can guys wear nice sneakers? Are there any restaurants at The Royal or Gran Porto that do not have a dress code?

        THANKS!
        Dress code is required at dinner for most of the resturants (all expect Spice and Pelicanos). Sneakers are fine. We had one guy that did a t-shirt, jeans and sneakers at every dinner... no problems. They only care about shorts, sleeveless shirts and flip flops or very open shoes on guys.

          Hi Ladies!

          I just got back this morning! I have so much to tell you all! I will try and get my review done soon. In the meantime let me know if you have any questions! We did have some issues with our wedding but it had nothing to do with our WC, Zulma. She is wonderful!

          I got to meet our Kendra! We ended up on the same excursion together Monday! Ruins, ziplining and repelling together- she is so sweet! I wish we had more time to hang out. Her wedding was so beautiful! I have a picture here of us at Tulum! Hope this isn't to big...

              jesmcan - I would think it would need to be official...we just want to make sure we have everything covered, you know?

              Steph, welcome back! Great pic!!

                Ok my dilema of the day...

                I just got an e-mail back from Ana. I had told her I wanted cocktail hour and reception to follow the ceremony. She wrote back "Ok but remember most restaurants do not open for semi-private until 6." Well our ceremony is at 2...has anyone ran into this. What will my guests do between 2 and 5? I guests it's only a couple of hours with our pictures and all it will go by fast for us...but what will our guests do??

                I was just talking to FI about it and i get the typical "Hun it's going to be fine, your thinking too much about it" So I said you know what I'll ask my fellow Royal brides, they'll give me a better answer! LOL

                  Lady_Di - ya very true totally understand :) well I hope it gets sorted out pronto

                  FutureMrsYak - Others have ran into the same dilemma. Well Guests could always go and freshen up and relax. Others have assigned someone to escort everyone to a bar like to lobby bar to have drinks and fun. Another alternative is to set up a "cocktail" hour of premises at a near by bar or restaurant and talking to those restaurants about doing an open bar and maybe some appetizers and coming up with a package for a good price.

                  If you need a any suggestions for the cocktail hour out of the royal I have the info for some great places really near by.

                    our ceremony is 2:00-2:30, then our cocktail hour is 2;30-3:30 then our reception doesn't start until 6:00. we plan on taking pictures etc during that time. but we also figure our guests will just go back, freshen up, meet others at the bar and get drinks etc. we aren't too worried about it....esp if they know the timeline ahead of time they should be able to make plans. but we might have a couple of friends just let it be known they are going to the lobby bar etc and whoever wants to follow is welcome to join. since they are already at an all inclusive, might as well take advantage! :)

                      Hmmm so I'm wondering if I should do cocktail hour immediately following like you are...or if i should just start that an hour before the reception...so from 2:30-5 they do their own thing...then 5-6 cocktail hour...then go to the reception all together right from there. That way we actually can attend the cocktail hour too because our pics should be done by then.
