Thanks
Hi yes you do have to pay extra unfortunetly for guests not staying at the resort. It depends on which package you picked. For example we are doing the ultimate luxury and its $30 per person if they are staying at the real resort if not it is $60 per person for those not staying at real resorts. Again the rate varies depending on the package yoou picked.

So if you don't want the orange candles what is the other choice? The orange would clash with my colors. Also, do they put the palms up at the beach reception? We just some some photos from Del Sol that they were used and they are fabulous.
I asked the very same question! :) I was told that was the only option. Other wise you can do the hurricane which have white candles. I thought they looked beautiful. However I noticed in the most recent wedding in the pictures the candles are white?

Yes they do put the palms up at the beach reception and I must say they do a beautiful job. Every set up had them.

Hi Lady Di,

I am sorry I do not want to be discouraging in any way but it really was that bad. Especially at that part of the beach. It is the main entrance because the beach is public and tons of people are passing in and out through there. Also the pier is right there. At 4pm is when all the boats to Cozumel come back to pick up the people. Literally we saw hundreds of people waking through.

It was so rude I thought that all these people were turning there chairs to face and watch the wedding and on top of that topless!!

We had our site visit in the morning so I am really happy we went back in the afternoon to see for ourselves. Also I am not sure if this varies during different times of the year. Zulma told us May, June and November is their high season for weddings.

It is hard to say where it would be best because the entire beach was packed with people. I'm sorry sad.gif it really depends on preferance for this one I think.

Welcome back Tracy!!! your pictures were beautiful, your wedding looked awsome!

Question we just got back from our site visit and they told us the only option was orange candles on the table? However I saw in your pictures you had white? Did the resort supply them?

Hi Bmlynch, we did not see this set up while we were down there but you could definetly do it. We were actually looking into this option as well but unfortunetly the restaurant is much to small for 100 people.

The restaurant is really nice however even though it is right infront of the beach you can't really see the beach. They have the big bed cabanas blocking the view and if there is another wedding going on they have these white sails up. Also in order to get to the beach you have to go back through the pool area, down the a walk wa, take a right and than your there.

The setup that they do is absolutely beautiful! if you do it at the restaurant how are you setting up the beach?

By the way ladies there is a place right near the Royal on 5th called the Cigar factory. They offer cigar rollers and other services. We ended up getting three boxes of cigars and a box of small choclate and vanilla cigars for the ladies. They were personalize the boxes and the bands for you with you initials and wedding date. For three boxes of 25 and two boxes of 10 of the small ones with the personalization it is $400. They offer all diffrent rates depending on what you get an how much.

Hi Lady Di,

 

I went in august for a site visit and we too are having our reception at the beach area near Pelicanos. We were given that location because of the size of our wedding, about 60 people. I can honestly say im fine with that location. Yea there are people walking and its an open beach but our cocktail hour starts at 5:30pm (cermeony in gazebo at 5pm), most people begin to get out of the beach area and by dark time, its really almost empty. I think if we do have some "lookers" so be it. I won't be paying attention to them. I just wanted to give you my thoughts about that location because it is the biggest beach area...

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
