  1. Great pics! I am using Sascha for my wedding next month at The Royal in Cancun and am super excited!!!
  2. Thanks for your response! I did call the number and talked to my new coordinator, Elsa, for over an hour! She is magnificent, lol! She went over everything, and answered all my questions that were either ignored or they were unable to answer from the Michigan office. She is even going to set up my private catamaran charter for me (we are doing this instead of gifts for the wedding party). So, I encourage everyone that has been having communication difficulty to call the 1-866 number on the real weddings website and speak with someone at the new office in Mexico.
  3. Thank you so much for your review! My wedding is at The Royal August 14th and I'm starting to stress! Angie was my coordinator and I know the office has been moved to Mexico. However, Angie has not emailed me back to let me know if she is still my coordinator or what is going on ( I emailed her over a week ago). So it's refreshing to hear that everything went perfect for your day! How was the weather at night for the reception? I am doing a beach reception too and am concerned it will still be super hot at night. Thanks again and congrats Mrs!!!

If anyone has seen the venue, where is it best to get married - gazebo, beach by gazebo or beach by pelicanos? Thanks everyone I personally liked the gazebo at The Royal the best. The Gran Caribe Gazebo is more private but I didn't choose that one because I'm not sure what kind of aisle you walk down (There are a ton of steps to walk down unless you walk through the gate at the Royal. The Royal gazebo is right by the quiet side of the pool and you walk over a cute bridge that's over the pool to get into it. They are all gorgeous locations and you really can't go wrong with any of them. Check Tripadvisor.com and look at the resort photos there to get a better idea of the surroundings! Good luck!

I am not sure if I am going to use them or not, but either way they will be up for sale when I return (I will be home May 25). I bought additional real touch flowers to add to the bouquets and they are fantastic! I love them so much that I was worried that I wouldn't like my real flowers now as much. So anyways, still let me know if you are interested and I will sell upon my return either way. The centerpieces are available for immediate purchase still (I will not be bringing those with me). I will sell the 5 of those for $100 total. These are made up of white calla lilies, white peonies and orange papaya orchids. They are approximately 8" tall and 8" wide at the top. Email me with questions! Thanks! I am extremely interested in the centerpieces. Are they bouquets as well? Can the ribbon color be changed easily? What were you going to put them in? Please email me! marcimelnick@gmail.com Thanks, Marci

It was one of those experiences where we just 'stopped by', completely unprepared and what do you know...walked out with a dress! I'm adding a sash a the waist (maybe with a flower...what do you guys think?). The skirt portion of the dress is what won me over. It has tulle inserts and a large portion of the train is tulle. LOVE! That dress was made for you! Gorgeous!

  10. Hey ladies, I figured I would share this info with all of you. POB is having a sample sale at select locations March 17th-19th. It says wedding gowns are starting at $199, and special occasion dresses/bridesmaid dresses are starting at $19.99! This is something that's probably worth checking out if you have a POB in your area. Here is the link with the info: SAMPLE SALE | Priscilla of Boston
  11. I have a ton of pics that I took of the Royal and Gran on my wedding website. I was there December 17-21, right after the beach was done. Just click on the link to my photo galleries. John & Marci - wedding website by mywedding.com
  12. Hey ladies! I'm an August 14th, 2010 bride! My wedding is at The Royal in Cancun. I am starting to freak out about the weather. I was there in August of '08 and it was hot, but I don't remember how it was in evening (probably because I had mucho tequila by that time of day, lol). My ceremony will be outdoors in a gazebo at 4:30 pm, and reception is on the beach at 6:00 pm. I am hoping it will cool off enough to be comfortable! Keeping my fingers crossed that the ocean breeze will make for a beautiful evening on the beach.
  13. If you are willing to travel about 40 min outside of Chicago to Gary Indiana there is this gorgeous place right on the beach in the dunes national lakeshore. It's called the Aquatorium, it's an old bath house from the 20's that has had many renovations. I was going to do my ceremony and reception here but decided on a DW instead. The website is Welcome to the Chanute Aquatorium Society -Marci

I wasn't even going to try it on because of the price tag (1500 was the high end of my budget) then she told me to try it on and that she would see what she could do. After oogling myself in the mirror with it on for like 15 minutes, she pulled in back and told me the news! Thanks for the kind words! Girls, if your dream dress is out of your price range, just remember that anything is possible!
