    Thanks in advance.

    I was told in writing that I would have to pay $100 per person (so if they have assistants too) and I would have to include them as "guests" at my reception, meaning $50 charge for each one which included a meal for them. So really it is $150 for each. Also most photographers I have looked at require a meal if they do the reception.

      You must pick a package, then if you want a reception it is $50pp in addition to your package. There are a variety of other extras that you can add to your package on request but no subtractions.

      Bummer. That is what I figured..oh well. When you say you got it "in writing" do you mean just by email or did they give you some sort of written contract. Zulma has been telling me the same things as she is telling you but I only have it documented in emails. Hope that is sufficient?!?!

I suppose I'll just keep on. My TA and I did a follow up email today and my TA said she will call tomorrow if we don't hear anything.
      I think it is "standard" operating procedure. Even the church took 2 weeks to get back to me to confirm they received my down payment. I was pretty frustrated with the wait.

        I did mean by email. I hope that is good enough as well. From everything I have read on here I am making sure I get everything confirmed by email and that I save them all and bring them with me! Sounds like you never know who will quit or when you will need them because they change policies or tell somebody else something different. On the bight side, from what I have read on here, they tend to honor anything that was emailed previously...

          I think the dance floor size depends on the number of guests that you have but you can always rent a bigger one than they offer to be safe. If you two are able to dance like that (IMPRESSIVE) I have a feeling your whole group will be dancing and you will want a big floor!!

            It may be a first! Persistent emails to Zulma (2 today, one from me and one from my TA) get returned emails the same day! In case anyone else wants to try it!

            I think we will have 50 people minimum and a few performances like ours but with more people (ie group performance). I emailed Zulma to see what the standard/default size they give. Hopefully they can accommodate.

            If anyone has more pics of the ballroom at the Royal please post 'em. The only good shots I have seen were from Elizabeth Medina's blog.

              Is everyone booking the DJ offered by the hotel? The rate is currently $1K - that's just crazy! Anyone know of any cheaper options?

                We're just using our iPod. I would love to have a DJ, but we don't want to send an extra grand, when we have thousands of iTunes. :-) I asked Zulma what the cost was to use our iPod and their speakers, and she didn't give me a price. It may be free. Does anyone know the price of using the Royal's AV eqipment?
