    Hi Ladies 

     

    I am getting married at the Royal January 7th :)  We are having our reception in the ballroom with the three course meal - I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend what entree to have for dinner.  I am thinking of the Duck and Salmon but I'm not sure!  Please help :)

        based on previous reviews, the favorite entrees were:

         

        Spinach souffl© with blueberry sauce au white wine flavor (SP-3)

        Beef fillet tournedo with fresh wild mushrooms sauce (SP-3)

        Paris chocolate shell stuffed with fruit au white Cinzano flavor (SP-2)
         

        for me, I'm planning to give guests a choice between the beef fillet and the red snapper, but I'm also having the crab-stuffed avocado as the starter instead of the souffle. here are some pics in case your curious what some of the choices look like:

            I like Playa Weddings - they work with La Luna photographers (Rachel). not sure if they'll fit into your budget, but both are AMAZING!!

            Has anyone done one?  Which one did you choose?  Was it worth the money?

             


            We are pretty close to 50, I'm curious about this, too.

              Yup, it is $350, but Patricia (I think she is the initial WC you get before you sign a contract) told me if they stay at the resort, you get 10 or 20% off of that fee, I can't remember.  I'm going to try to get around that fee as much as possible though - my photographer is a "wedding guest" staying at the resort taking pictures... ? hope it works!

                Just curious if you ladies have ever had a guest get their rooms comped for teaching activity classes?  Two of my bridesmaid are official instructors for yoga and Zumba and told me that some resorts will pay for your room if you agree to teach x number of classes.  Does The Royal PDC even have these types of classes or anywhere to facilitate them?

                  they do have those classes and used to do daily yoga sessions in the gazebo. I think they also have a pilates thing, but my assumption is they use staff instructors. several are sports coaches.
