    Congrats Sarah!  Can't wait to see some pics!

     

     

     

     

    Has anyone arranged a rehearsal dinner at either a Gran Porto or Royal restaurant and at the dinner used projector to show a slideshow?

    I've set up the dinner, but my WC said they cannot accomodate a projector for a slideshow at a restaurant.  I understand it's not that private, but I still wanted to do it there instead of at the wedding reception if possible.

     

    :) Thanks!

    Couple of questions regarding decorating the oceanfront gazebo...

     

    Does anyone know the pricing for the different decorating options like the medallions on the posts, etc? Did anyone have Marvin do things for these?

     

     

    Thanks! Denielle

      I used the resort for the gazebo flowers since I did not want to pay the vendor fee for Marvin to do it.  I did use Marvin for my bouquets, bountanires (sp?), and centerpieces though.

       

      Your WC can give you prices if they are not listed on the checlist.

        I did not do a rehearsal dinner but I did see some semi-private events going on in the restaurants but unfortuneately your WC is right there would be no where to set it up.

          My Wedding Review:

           


          Hello Ladies, I was recently married at the RPDC- May 18th, 2011.

          Here is my review on the resort,

           

          Check in: The staff at this resort is amazing, as soon as you step into the lobby there is someone there to greet you, they immediately escort you to the Romance Concierge where you check in, get you room and go over the different restaurants etc. I am going to warn you, do not go expecting you will be upgraded because I did and we were not upgraded so I was a little disappointed with this. Our room was beautiful and big- we had the Royal Master One Bedroom Suite- Beautiful!

          We travelled with a lot of people who travelled the world and some of them were not too pleased with the food, They did go into Playa to have dinner a few nights- Personally The Asiana restaurant was everyones favourite place to eat so make sure your guests check this out. We did eat at chefs table because of our room category and this too was great. Some of the guests did get sick from Maria Marie. So overall I would give the food a B-.

          Drinks: Great selection, they can make you just about anything. They do not garnish the drinks like they would if you were at Margaritaville but I didn't hear anyone complain about this. I would give the drinks an  A!

           

          Wedding: We had Deny's- One word: Amazing~ she is so cute! She takes care of everything, we went in with 3 suitcases full of decor and props and she said to leave it all with her!, everything for our setup was 100%!

          We did pelicanos beach for our ceremony, cocktail and reception- if you are getting married on the beach do not do Central- it is not private at all and you have an audience- with pelicanos the only people you will get are off to the side on the pier- but you don't t even notice them and you don't care.

          We purchased the lounge furniture which really makes for a nice set up, we used DJ Mannia and the light up dance floor- we also purchased an extra hour for the reception, If your budget allows you to do all of these, then you really should. People are still talking about our MC from DJ Mannia, he was the highlight of our wedding, really! I would hands down give our wedding A+!!!

           

          With our wedding package we had included dinner on the beach the night after the wedding, again if you have this, please use it, it is so romantic and you will need a break from the group for one night so it's a great excuse to just be alone with your new husband. I loved this dinner and the set up, our server was amazing! A+

           

          The only piece of advice I have is to trust the staff at the royal and your WC, they know what they are doing, as they do 3-4 a day on average. They are so professional and really go the extra mile to make your day perfect.

          If you have the option to have your ceremony video taped then do this, we are kicking ourselves for not capturing a video of our day :(

          My other piece of advice, don't stress!!! I was so nervous for my wedding, after it was over, I was like "well that was easy", you have no idea what your will be like the day of your wedding so try to just sit back and relax! In fact, I wish we could do it again :) 

           

          Have fun, your guests will love this resort, it is top notch and the service cannot be beat!!! 

          Our guests had a blast. There were friendships made between guests that did not know each other prior to this trip and they will continue to keep in touch!

          Good Luck to all future brides- You won't be disappointed!!

            Hi Playa wedding, you said you had a one bedroom master suite.  Which room number did you have and do you have any pics from the room with the view?  We also are getting this type of room and I don't know if I should choose a room near the quiet pool or on the side near the gazebo.

                JoZee 84,

                Our room assignment was suite 740, it was supposed to be an ocean view room but it was pretty far from the ocean so unless you get an oceanfront room you will be directly by the beach. We were in the new section (quite pool) area which on some days was more rowdy then the main pool- you have your own bar (El mediterriano) the restaurant and the coffee house. I really liked the location of our room, it was tucked away from everything but yet you had everything you needed right there. The resort is not big, its spread out really nice so wherever you go you are close to everything. The gazebo is closer to the ocean.

                Hope this helpse
