    Oh my God, do I covet your flowers! Like, change my color scheme to incorporate those pink, orange, and yellow flowers! Wow! They were definitely showstoppers!

    Hi ladies, don't worry about Marvin he's just super busy right now.  You can always call him too and I LOVED my flowers from him.  I can't remember if I posted pics or not but here is my bouquet and centerpieces I got through him.  However if you dont have your contract from him I would be sure to get that.

     

    Also, just a heads up my WC said The Royal couldn't put the centerpieces on the tables for me without charging the vendor fee.  I freaked out at first but my aunt and a couple friends put them on the tables for me and the bell- boys from the hotel brought them carts and wheeled it out to the beach for them.

      Hi Ladies,

      I have enjoyed seeing everyones pictures on here and reading about your weddings.  I have a couple of questions that I am sure some of you could answer.

       

      1.  When would you recommend making contact with the local florist in Playa for a March wedding?  Is there just Marvin or are there others?  What is their contact information?

      2.  What is the average amount spent on the OOT bags....my fiance and I were thinking about $50.  Too low or too high?

      3.  Has anyone done a catamaran excursion?  We will probably have about 70 guests and would like to hear your opinions on them if you have done it.

       

      I am sure I will think of so many more but I just love this website and all the ladies that have shared their planning tips and ideas!

       

      Congratulations to all you summer brides, my fiance and I saw about 3 take place there in late may and they were all gorgeous!

      Andrea

        Thanks for the TA advice, ladies! Do any of you know a good travel agent who is familiar with the resort? Also, if I go with a TA then do I still have the option to book through the resort? I want my guests to be able to book through a TA, through the resort, or on their own online.

              Hey Ladies!

               

              I love this website and all of the planning details, OOT bag ideas, pictures etc.  All of your ideas and thoughts are greatly appreciated.  I have a couple questions if anyone would like to answer them.....

               

              ~ How soon would you recommend contacting the florist in Playa?  What is Marvins contact information?

              ~ How much on average would you spend on each OOT bag?

              ~ Is it silly to have ushers for 70 guests?

               

              Looking forward to all your ideas!

              Andrea

                  Oh no!  I'm so sorry about the potential storm.  Yikes!  Hope it doesn't occur on your big day.  If it does, I got this great advice from my wedding photographer Ivan Luckie:

                   

                  He said, whatever you do, it's YOUR wedding day!!!  Lots of brides stress about the clouds/rain etc. and then they end up looking sad in their photos.  You don't want bad weather AND bad photos!  So whatever will be, will be, just relax and smile through it! Make sure your fiance knows its his JOB to make you laugh and smile for photos and distract you from worrying about the weather (they love jobs ;) Also, he said that a lot of the rainy day/storm photos are his favorites because of the crazy cloud formations in the background. Plus the hotel is GORGEOUS inside for photos as well.  So, I hope, hope, hope and pray it doesn't rain on your big day (or mine!) but if it does, smile, smile, SMILE through it all.

                    JHarris,

                    Don't worry too much, I ve seen brides at RPDC on rainy days during my site inspection, they all looked great and had great times with indoor reception.  For things that you don't have control over, you should just chill and relax.  Of course, we can all pray and send u positive vibes~~~~

                    Andrea,

                    I spent like $10 per each OOT bags..initially I was thinking of buying those hand sanitazers, but then I saw RPDC already offers them to its guests...they also offers chips, boxes of juices in their mini bar, they also have bath salts and tea lite candles for the jaccuzi in the room

                    ...as for medications, I just send a list of things to pack to my guests.  As some people have allergies to certain meds..and I don't want to be responsible for that.
