The whole wedding would be going on so Zulma said people avoid walking over there because they see the wedding going on. Also it is not the easiest way to access the rooms and there are no restaurants or anything over there so people don't really go over there. We actually ended up changing our cocktail hour to the grass area right where the gazebo is because it is more private. You will see it in my pics.
Awesome! Well since I am getting married in april I will send you all MY pics. haha. SO excited :)

Jesmcan -

 

I saw pictures of La Tortuga Hotel & Spa restaurant and your absolutlely right, the ambiance is amazing! i want my rehearsal dinner there now! LOL. Is it expensive? did they quote you on a per head charge or have any information on pricing?

 

Also, Is the restaurant already set up with the mixture of tables & lounge areas you were speaking of? or did you have to speak with managment to arrange this because all i saw were normal tables in the pictures on the website?

 

Also, The Tapas you will be serving to keep it light, great idea!! is this something off the menu or did you also have to arrange with the management team?

 

Thanks so much, you have been such a help for all of us!

The resort charges $60 for makeup. The only difference is the vendor fee. i am not sure if i have to pay for the vendor fee. that would suck big time!
Do you have the Mac ladys contact info?? Im getting married in Cancun, could you put me intouch with her?

i am hoping to get married nov 11th 2010 at the gazebo at the royal. and then have a cocktail hour, and then the reception in the ballroom. our TA has done many weddings at the royal, and has worked with the wedding coordinator many times. we haven't put our deposit down yet, because if we do right now, we miss out on a special rebate (which would be about $1000 cash back at the end). if we put a deposit down in december once the flights are out, we can still get that cash back special. so our TA is working with her, trying to figure out how to keep it reserved and getting the special. but at the moment, we are planning on Nov 11th, and the wedding coordinator does know about it.

we are planning on about 40-50 guests, but haven't sent the info out yet. but most the people know our plans and are eagerly waiting the info! i have gotten so much good info about photographers and dj's i feel like i already know everything i want!

thank you guys for everything and i can't wait to give my input and hear what you girls have to say!
Congrats on your engagement AND getting through this whole thread, haha! December will be here before you know it so I'm sure you'll be able to get your date :)

The pic is the Pelicanos restaurant and that is the pier right there and the first beach area that is right next to the pier.

The reception will be very nice in the main garden area. Even though everyone can see you it still is nice because it is closed off and people can't walk around in your area.

Ya we ended up with the light up dance floor after all. You know in the garden area you may not even need a dance floor if you really did not want one.
Ohhhh, hahaha! I found another pic of that area on Google, and I cracked up when I realized how much its NOT a dance floor, LOL.

That's a good idea! We might just pass on the dance floor afterall. I remember seeing some pics from a reception in the garden that didn't have one, and I didn't even realize. Thanks!

Adriana and Lady Di,

This was the best hotel I have ever stayed at!! The service is above and beyond. They actually had a wedding brunch there for 40 whilw were there and the guests could not stop raving about the food and how beautiful the hotel is.

I do not have rates yet but I am getting them this Friday and I would be more than happy to pass everying on. I asked for them to include open bar rates in the packages. Because I am fluent in Spanish I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting Enrique the general manager. He is the person I am working with. He is also going to send me ab bunch of pictures of diffrent set ups that they do. When I get them on Friday I will post them all on Shutterfly so you guys can have a look to.

As far as the tapas he is going to send me 21 diffrent options and 8 other buffet menus to choose from with the prices. I will keep you guys posted and let you know as soon as I get everything from him.

I just have to say again how much I love this hotel :)

Thank you sooooo much for the advice!!!!

 

 

 

I'm not doing the Ultimate pkg, but we're just using our iPod the whole time. I've read lots of other brides who have done this and it worked out great :) Plus its way cheaper than a DJ, if you're looking to cut some costs.

 

 

 

Oh yay! When are y'all arriving in Playa? We'll be there till the 10th. We booked 6p for our ceremony! I did some research to find the sunset time and 6p is as close as we can get w/o it being dark so soon after. Did you decided on a time, yet? Here's a link to the site I found the sunset times:

 

Location Selection for Sunrise Sunset Calendar

 

I just plugged Cancun/Quintana Roo for the city.
