  1. oh and if you like my bridesmaid dresses they come in several colors through Venus.com just to let ya know 36bucks!!!!
  2. Thanks Lutz92..I was feeling the same way you are all nervous about how everything would turn out but I lucked out and I couldnt of been happier! Im sure you will feel the same way soon enough! The guys shirts were from Macys..they were more of an ocean blue than turquoise though...I wanted ocean blue and yellow for my theme and it turned out perfectly Let me know if you have any other questions I can help you with! Good luck hun!
  3. The only restaurant that has a dress code is the reservations only restaurant at Maria Maria..the guys had to have on sleeves..We had one guy with us who had on a tank and they made him go put on a button up but everyone was wearing flip flops and sandals so they arent that enforcing of the dress code...all the other restaurants you can wear whatever or atleast we were never stopped for dress code issues... pretty much summer attire is fine.. and swim wear during the day is totally fine..I would just bring regular clothes for the dinner time but nothing real fancy
  4. Hi! Ok so we just did the free wedding because we booked 5 nts at the Royal Presidential suite. Money well spent btw! We did the private reception but you have to have 20 guests to get this (which you get to pick your location), otherwise it will be a semiprivate reception and you can only have those in the restuarants. It will cost an extra 30 dollars per person to do the private reception. You can just email your coordinator a head of time and stake your claim on time and location otherwise if you wait until the 45 day mark which is when you do all the forms with all your details for the wedding. If you wait till then it could be too late and the location may already be booked. So my advice is to do everything in writing with your WC as soon as you make your decision on venues. We did our private reception on the gazebo terrace and used the gazebo for dancing (ceremony was at 5 and reception started at 6:30-9:30) The latest you can be out there is 10 though. Yes we did have a DJ. We booked Ivan from DJ Demorixx who was absolutely wonderful. If you have a younger crowd I would highly reccomend getting the dj. Plus the DJ brings the lighting and decor and really makes the gazebo look fun and beautiful. Worth the money!!! We used Cecilia Dumas and she was super amazing, which we booked on our own and booked her a room at the Gran Caribe to avoid the outside vendor fee of 375 I think... It was well worth the money also because I did not hear great reviews on the hotels photographers. If you want to see more pics you can friend me on facebook. Just private message me and I will give you my FB info Hopefully that was helpful...if you have anymore questions feel free to ask...Im here to help all of you brides who are where i was at one point... Its so hard to plan your dream wedding at a place site unseen so its really helpful to be on this site and have brides who have been there done that!
  5. Thanks We got the sand ceremony frame online from www.sayanythingceramics.com it i Just look under sand frames. We paid $65 for ours. There are a lot of sites that do these. Just google personalized sand ceremony frames. Good luck!
  6. Hi! Thanks for the nice words! Yes I would totally reccomend the Gran Caribe and Gazebo terrace for your group of 20 people. I think its the best spot for a smaller group as the other terraces are much bigger and I would think would be less intimate. I loved the terrace just because it was super private and the space made it feel like we had a larger group. We had 34 people and we all fit perfectly. It was super private! Also I reccomend you use the Gran Caribe gazebo over the Royal because the Royal gazebo is very out in the middle of everything over by the pool area so much more public. THe Gran gazebo is between hotels and there are gates on both sides so less traffic..we didnt have anyone in our area the entire time we had our ceremony or reception. They keep it closed off so its private... As far as food goes, we werent able to taste anything before hand since we didnt do a site visit prior to the wedding trip but we had the chicken florentine and beef fillet and everyone loved them both. I also had 1 guest who had the linguini and she said that was great also...So if you stick to the basic meals you wont be dissapointed! Everything was fabulous!
  7. THanks girls! Glad I could help!!! You will love this place! Vanessa I got my bridesmaid dresses from Venus (online) for 36 bucks each..they were actually swim suit cover ups lol They ended up being perfect!

    April 2011 Brides

    Hey Wonderful April brides just got my prof pics back and wanted to share a few of my favs... I cant believe April has come and gone and now were left with amazing memories and beyond beautiful pics..and each other of course! Whos working on baby makin now?? heheh
  9. I envy you girls who still have their weddings coming up..I would give anything to rewind that day! It was beyond perfect! You will love it!
  10. By the way the master swim up suites at the Royal are super fabulous. If we didnt want the extra room in our suite we would have loved the swim up suite.. you have a nice pool area outside.. its awesome! Ugh just thinking about this place makes me want to go back soooo bad! The Royal is amazing..we spent our whole honyemoon comparing everyplace we went with the Royal and nothing will ever look the same! We are planning to go back soon!!! hehe
  11. Thanks so much! Yes we chose the free package just because we didnt plan to add much from the resort since we brought most of our own stuff down with us. Plus we wanted the presidential suite anyway I know the judge alone is like 400 or 500 I cant remember what it went up to this year so with the free wedding you dont have to pay for that. I think you need to decide what kind of room you really want and what extras you want and figure out cost for cost..make sense? Since we didnt need flowers, band, or centerpieces we were fine with the free package. Hope that made sense... as far as centerpieces go, my mom made them and since we only had 4 tables we only needed 4 centerpieces so we just packed them in our carry ons... piece of cake. We ended up bringing down 2 20x20 boxes packed with all of our OOT bags and wedding decor and it suprisingly all made it in one piece (my hubby works for UPS) so i think that helped alittle! lol Anyway let me know if you have any other questions Good luck!!!!
