heidi&alex - where are you having your reception?
We are getting married right next door at The Royal Playa del Carmen, the sister resort of yours. I had a hard time as my nephew is coming so I was searching for a place that would allow kids but I also wanted to be close to town. We're going to stay at the Royal and have our wedding there but guests with children (or whoever else wants) will be staying at the Gran Porto Real (and can attend our weddding). Plus we have reciprocal privelages for each resort so it will work out.... I was also searching for a beach that wasn't eroded and the beach there seemed fine.
We are getting married in the gazebo at 4 pm (wanted a beach wedding but decided against it for the privacy issues) and having our reception on the beach.
If you have any questions feel free to PM me. When is your wedding date in May? We'll be leaving for the Royal on May 28 so we could potentially be there at the same time!

To opt out of doing the blood test was reason enough, lol. Plus doing the symbolic ceremony just seemed a lot simpler to do.
I am starting to wish we would have done the same because I am unbelievably terrified of needles too! Just the thought of some Mexican doctor coming into my hotel room and shoving a needle into me makes me sick to my stomach!
