    Does anyone know of where we could hire a limo transfer from the airport to the resort?  The Resort price seems very unreasonable!

      you definately should have the tea ceremony! maybe on your wedding day so you're both dressed in your wedding attire?

       

      we were planning on doing all of that at the resort but our parents aren't coming due to the AHR so we're doing it all at home, but if they were coming, we would definately incorporate those traditions. don't forget to get some cushions (from the resort?) if you intend on kneeling  =)

       

      maybe you could play some soft music during the tea ceremony in case?

      Any brides doing any cultural stuff from their heritage? I'm half taiwanese and want to incorporate the traditional tea ceremony. I can't decide if I should do it during rehearsal dinner or have it on wedding day. With the concert going on next door, it's going to really make me upset if I hear their music during this quiet moment.

       

      Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards rehearsal dinner day.

        Hi All,

        i will be getting married at the Royal on Apr. 10 2011.  I have a few questions and hoping to get some advice:

         

        1.  is a beach reception better at the Royal or Gran Porto?

        2.  is it a pain to stay at the Royal when all of our guests are staying at the Gran Porto?  We need to stay at the Royal in order to have the wedding there but im concerned about not being able to spend time with our guests and being able to have my bridal party stay with me the night before the wedding...

        3.  how expensive the the Glass Bar restaurant for a private welcome party?  any other suggestions for places to hold a welcome party?

         

        any suggestions/info would be greatly appreciated!

         

        Thanks so much!

        -Cat

The atmosphere is awesome and your on this huge roof top with lounge areas. Like I said the food is really good, I hope they give you good pricing for a group. However nothing is going to be as cheap as doing it at the resort. Form all the reviews I have heard Marias is the best spot for a rehearsal dinner, especially with a group of 40.

           

          Lisa love both of your dresses! you are going to look stunning. You got a lot done.


           

          Thanks, Jess! I feel I accomplished a lot :-)

            Luna1923 - You know now that you mention it I have never actually scene stretch limo's when we have gone to Mexico. The only private transportation we have ever used are the escalade's. Other than that it is the vans :( We use Cancun Transfers http://www.cancuntransfers.com/

                I think the tea ceremony would be really nice, you should def do it. I need to find out what my wedding traditions are!
