        I leave exactly 2 weeks from today!  I'm SO ready....all im waiting for is my chair sashes and my place cards for the guests (which I'm going to attach to maracas).  DO NOT order anything from Diva Girl Designs.  I ordered Sashes from them about 6 weeks ago (picked them because of this color I really wanted and couldn't find).  She kept saying 2 more weeks, 2 more weeks...and barely even a sorry!  If you don't have the product just say so!  Supposedly I'm getting them by Friday.


        Ugh crappy! If they fall through on you, i used these folks: https://www.weddings...n.com/index.php . Placed two separate orders with them and had sashes and table overlays within a week.

        I was really, really wanting tres leches cake :-( ..she couldnt explain why (she said she wasnt sure how to translate). Sigh. Did you get an upgraded cake? How did you choose the caramel and coffee filling (sounds delish!)

         

        Does anyone else have the luxury package? We paid (for non-real guests) an additional 80 pp for reception, 20 pp for cocktail and 20 pp for cake/champagne toast? Is that last charge right? I see a charge of 10 pp in the previous package, but nothing about 20 pp in luxury for champ/cake. Weird.  (and 10pp for hot canapes) So 130.00 pp for non real ...yikes ....4 so far

          Thanks Lisa!!  I will save the website just in case.

           

          I sent my fiance all the flavors and told him to pick anything that's not chocolate (since we are having the chocolate cannoli dessert).  He is pretty picky with desserts and he picked the caramel/coffee, which sounded really good to me too!!   Did they give you the cake flavor list?

            Natalie79 - Those maracas are soo cute!  I'm saving the link to my favorites so I can buy them later on!  Thanks!

            Lady Di - I go back and look at your photos and planning all the time!  It's just all so pretty and inspiring!

             

             

            So, I'm leaving this Friday for my friend's wedding in Puerto Morelos and we will do the site visit at the Royal on Monday, Oct 18th!  I cannot wait to see this place in person!  AND do the food tasting!  Yum!

             

            I had my first hiccup with my WC...She wanted to move the site visit to a different time, but my TA stepped in and reminded her that the site visit had been booked for over a month.  PHEW!  We would not have been able to do the site visit at all if it got rescheduled because we have to catch our flight home the same day.

             

            The only thing I am concerned about is getting from Puerto Morelos to the Royal.  The only thing I can think of is to ask the shuttle service (if they have one) at the hotel we are staying at if they can drive us to the Royal.  I don't think taking a 45 min. - an hour long cab ride will be affordable or safe...   Does anyone have any advice? 

             

            CONGRATS to all the recent October brides!!  CAN'T wait to see pictures and planning!!

              Hi Heidi!  We are using Cancun Transfers for our transportation and they do hotel to hotel too.  They are great and have good prices for transfers.  They are also very quick to get back to you with questions!

                Looks like a one way cab fair from Puerto Morelos should be around $26-30 dollars one way (20 miles away from each other).

                  Natalie,

                   

                  Did you get an upgraded cake or the one in the package? The only options i saw for the one included was generic vanilla, choc, lemon and something else.

                   

                   

                  Heidi, Lomas travel is also decently priced for transfers

                    Woops!  forgot to answer the first time :)

                     

                    We got the standard cake, since there are only 30 of us I thought it would be the best option.  She said I could pick Choc or vanilla cake...and then there was a list of maybe 15 filling options??
