  1. Ivan of Doremixx and the light up dance floor is TOTALLY worth it...not only is it fun, but it really makes your pictures spectacular
  2. I taped receipts to each of my different items with a message in spanish that said "items for a wedding" and it was fine
  3. oh I forgot Maya Diseno also made the bouts- so that was included in above price too!
  4. Thank you much! I believe I spent exactly 500 USD for the 4 centerpieces, bridal bouquet (which I ended up giving to MOH when other bridesmaid didn't show), bridesmaid bouquet, and two mother corsages. I did not pay a vendor fee as they just dropped off everything at the wedding center . The table overlays and sashes came from the following: http://weddingslinen.com/ Good luck and may you have a beautiful and blessed wedding
  5. Forgot to add to missbusybee! Yes, Vistaprint is a god send. Sign up asap and you will get periodic emails about free stuff. I got free: brochures, t-shirts, pens for oot bags, postcards and even used business cards as notices for my shutterfly room for guests to upload wedding pics .
  6. I had 2 entrees and used punches from Michael's to distinguish b/t the two: I wouldn't have traded my beach reception for the world. It's such a one of a kind experience to dance and have fun with family and friends under the stars and near the waves Aww girly, if you want a beach ceremony, do it!! The ladies who had ceremonies on the beach (friends on this forum) all had beautiful ceremonies. Granted, people are going to swarm your wedding, but you will be completely oblivious and only notice your FI . Some bone-headed people will also walk behind your ceremony (b/t you and water), but any photographer worth his/her salt will be able to photoshop them out and the pictures will come out gorgeous I liked The Royal's lounge furniture and did use it.
  7. I believe there is one by the pool area. I honestly never got to go to the pool (too many things to do lol), so I'm not sure exactly where it's located.
  8. That's great, it makes me happy! The linens were purchased here: http://weddingslinen.com/ What time is your wedding and reception? If I'm not mistaken, the beach by Pelicanos has the nearby pier where there will be an endless stream of people returning to their cruise liner. I opted for the beach in front of the Gazebo for a few reasons: my ceremony was at gazebo (and cocktail reception in garden area by Gazebo), so the flow was pretty good. It was also close to my room so it made it less of a hassle when my MOH and SIL had to go with me to pee lol. The beach there is also the most private, as there aren't any nearby restaurants, and therefore traffic of people going to and from dinner. This is just my opinion, however, and I'm sure the Pelicano's section is beautiful, too.
  9. No problem, I remember the same feeling and I have no regrets about having my wedding at The Royal . p.s if you can afford it, ask for the corner room of Ocean front if you are getting married at the gazebo. My review has pics also. I basically walked out of my room, down the elevator beside it, and was standing in the area just before turning the corner to walk down aisle. Not to mention, the room has side windows by the jacuzzi that was great in pics (getting ready) Oh, and it was fun sneaking pics of everyone and seeing my setup lol I had my reception on the beach and it was THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE! Are you having a light up dance floor, DJ? The reason I ask is because the combo of light from 1. DJ lights, 2. light up dance floor 3. under table lights 4. bar gave plenty of light that was nice and ambient. (see pics in my signature if you would like to see more). sweetheart table in front of gazebo (which also has lights), the tall lights on either side of us are from DJ, and of course the dance floor: I highly recommend specifying BEACH in FRONT OF GAZEBO for more privacy As for your second question on excursion, have a look at this: http://www.catamaya.com.mx/
  10. For those of you who are getting frustrated- I know how you feel. I went so far as to book at another location because of my frustrations. I went with my gut and initial attraction to the Royal, however, and I'm soooo glad I did. I know you have heard it a lot, but it really is all about you once you get there. I remember feeling stressed 30 days out when I never spoke to my on site wedding coordinator, but once I got there, she met with me and DH and went over EVERYTHING. She showed a picture with every selection to make sure we were on same page with each choice and was completely devoted to us (this is why she doesn't have as much time to answer questions for people 30 days out). For those who are still not convinced and looking at Wicky's, you may want to look at Jessmcann's reviews (she was a wedding buddy who had ceremony at the Royal and reception at Wicky's...she is also the one who suggested my rehearsal dinner location- rooftop of La Tortuga) Feel free to look at wedding and/or TTD pics in my sig. I also have a review on the Royal . My DH and I travel every year and have never wanted to go to the same resort because we just like trying new ones. The Royal was so amazing that we plan to return for our 5th anniversary p.s. I wish I could get married again! Enjoy the planning
  11. I just got back from there and loved it. I saw two weddings - one on the beach (people swarmed all around it, but it was beautiful), and 1 on the top floor ...here are some pics i took and this is where the 2nd wedding was (i didnt take pics of actual one for privacy)
  12. Hi kel! <3 I wish I would have had my photographer take pics of just me (i dont have any ). Delegate family members to carry different things in their suitcases so that you are not bogged down with all of your decorations and such. Definitely steal your new husband away during the reception to have a quiet moment together to take everything in (I pulled him away toward the water and we watched all of our loved ones laughing and dancing) If you can get an oceanfront room, I HIGHLY recommend-especially the 5th floor corner above gazebo (see my review in my sig for more on this) I do wish they had better lighting under the tables for outside. I had seen pics where they were very obvious and lit up, mine were not. Buy more rose petals than you think (if you want to cover the walkway up to gazebo or alter- I bought 4 bags of each color and it wasn't nearly enough!) You will not be sorry hiring DJ Doremixx Try your hardest to do a TTD session- it's so unique and people will be blown away by it (most don't even know they exist) definitely do the IN-SUITE couples massage! I would recommend at least looking at the resort photographer photos (especially if you get free frames in your package), because they are so used to taking pics at this resort, they know how to capture some really good shots- especially at gazebo get the light up dance floor if you can afford him, get Fernando Fuentes (make up pros)...it was so nice having makeup/hair done in room That's all I can think of for now. It really was a dream wedding for us and went better than we could have imagined. The resort itself is incredible (get chef's plate if you can). Zulma is so sweet and attentive Everyone has made the right choice!
