    Ohhhh BTW my "new" contract does have the $300 4 months before on it.

    Sneaky, sneaky on The Royal's part...

     

    For past brides did you truly make your final payment 45 days before?  It seems so soon!


    Had the most AMAZING wedding at The Royal PDC on May 1, 2011

      I was wondering this too.. I know I've read that some brides just paid for the rest of their wedding when they checked out of the resort after the wedding so everything was on one big bill!

        So I still can't add a signature.. in my profile it says "The rest of your profile, and your signature will become visible after you've been active in the forums"... so I guess I haven't posted enough in the forums?? That's lame.

            It is right behind it. I would talk to them about this for sure.  I'm sure the people having their ceremony wouldn't appreciate it etiher. 

             

            When we initially contacted The Royal that was one of our main concerns knowing that they did multiple weddings a day and they ensured me a sitiuation like the one you mentioned wouldn't happen. 

             

            Now maybe the ceremony that is going one is only the couple and no guests etc so it won't interfere with your reception.  We say a couple "couples" getting married by themselves or renewing vows when we were there.


            I e-mailed my wedding coordinator about this, and I'm hoping I get a response soon... now for those brides who have already gotten married here, if you decided to make changes last minute, like if I wanted to move my reception location to a different area of the beach, and I didn't decide this until I got down there, like 2 days before the wedding, are they accommodating to changes?? Or are they strict about stuff? I guess I just feel like I'm not going to really get an idea of what things will look like, etc. until I am down there, and I'm not getting very many answers from my WC.... ??

              nope, the resort is relatively small compared to other resorts on the strip!

                hahaha...well, when a resort is struggling, they need the cashflow now! and with time value of money at 0% shorterm interest rate, it is better get the buck today, because it isn't going to worth more in the future!

                  JHarris - LOL that is really funny about your guys and the speedos!  Now for the scary part (and this is really embarassing) - My dad really does wear a speedo!  He wears is at the pool, the lake, wherever!  AND he has no shame and thinks it's normal!  OMG...I keep telling my FI that I should warn people that are coming to the wedding and will see him at the pool....hahaha nervous laugh...  BTW, what part of Houston do you live in?

                   

                  Suzy831 - I asked my WC through the Real Resorts Basecamp website - If we wanted to change our location, do we need to let her know now or can we let her know 2-3 days before the wedding when we arrive at the resort.  Her answer was now.  So we changed our location to the ballroom and it's a done deal.  Not sure why it had to be now, since the ballroom location seems to be the back up in case it rains, but I guess it's better safe than sorry.  Do you have the basecamp website set up?

                   

                  All ~

                  I checked my contract and they did put in there that a 2nd deposit is due and a final payment, but I didn't pay attention to it at all when I signed it!  I also just checked my basecamp website and their is a tab at the top that says 'Milestones'.  When I clicked on it, it showed the date when the 2nd deposit is due and also the date the final payment is due, 45 days before the wedding.  That is helpful and a good reminder.  :)

                   

                  Hope all is well with everyone!  8 days until I go wedding dress shopping!!

                    Alright, so I'm getting really really frustrated... I booked my wedding almost a year ago and since then I am now on my 4th WC... my last one Katia was awesome, but she is on maternity leave now... so I e-mailed my new WC about my reception on the beach behind the gazebo and it interfering with the wedding that is scheduled at the gazebo at the same time.... and she writes back that my reception was moved to the beach by Pelicanos!!! Okay, in every email and message from my other WC's I've specifically stated that I wanted my wedding on the beach behind the gazebo (just because I wanted everything in the same area so people didn't have to walk far to get to places) and I was told it was booked there... in all of my paperwork I sent them, it says "Reception: Beach behind Gazebo".. so can they just move it without asking me?? How is the beach by Pelicanos?? Is it nice? Is it nicer or worse than the beach area behind the gazebo??? I'm sooooo annoyed... but not sure if I can really do anything at this point. I know a beach is a beach... but just when I think I have everything figured out and organized, something else changes without me knowing!! :(

                      Hi Ladies!

                      I'm getting married in Playa as well. We're thinking about getting cigars while we're in Mexico to give to our guests as favors, and we'd like to make monogrammed matches and bring those with us. Does anyone know if these can be shipped in advance or if I can bring them with me in the plane?

                      Will greatly appreciate your input, Thanks!
