Having one choice of beef is just not what we want to do.. We tasted everything and it was all very good. I was impressed. Im doing ivan gomez and since we booked him before the prices changed we will be paying the same amount as before. We are doing to ult luxary package and just sent my save the dates out and we invited 300 people soo we might be in trouble haha
WOW! 300ppl, that would truly be awesome :-) We've got 120(ish) on the guest list and counting so we'll see...

For those of you doing more than one meal choice for your guests, do you think that we have to give an EXACT seating chart or more of a "Uncle Bob at Table 3 wants beef" sort of thing. I'd like to assign tables but not force ppl into certain seats. I've seen weddings where each meal has a different sticker or color on the seating card.

Also, if you haven't yet, check out Matt Adcock's post on the Playa construction. It looks like this could make the beaches even better...I'm hoping this is a good thing :-)

I was looking at the resort's webcam and you can actually see it going on (well, one day they had the Royal and Gran Porto's webcams backwards)

Thanks!
I definitely plan to do a cocktail hour...if you're doing the Luxury Package, it's actually included for up to 35ppl. We're having our ceremony in the gazebo and then doing the cocktail in the garden just outside of the gazebo.

I'm in the midst of trying to figure out what time I want the photographer to be there prior to the ceremony. I just saw this post and saw that you are booking your guy for eight hours. Ideally I would like to have him taking pics of me getting my hair and makeup done etc... but I don't want him to get there too early where he's just not taking any really good shots. What time have you asked him to arrive? Also, what time is your ceremony?


Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Hi we are doing a cocktail hour before the reception. It is a good chance to talk with guests or do your pics.

OK, I just got in contact with the new WC. It looks like it's the same as Jesmcan - Julie. Her e-mail is julie@villaworld.com! So far, so great, with her! She responded to all of my questions SO QUICKLY!!

Is this the same person you are referring to? To say the least, I had a short "freak out" moment. The woman I spoke to took my name and info and said she would have my new coordinator contact me!

Can you (or anyone else) verify this information!!! I feel so lost!

Hi ladies!
For those of you who had Kimberly R as your WC, like I did, and haven't heard from anyone there, here is Carole's (the manager) email carolec@realresorts.com. I went back through some of the emails Kimberly sent me and found Carole's in there so I just emailed her (not knowing she was the manager now or if she even still worked there) and asked if she could help me find out who would be my new WC since Kimberly was gone. Luckily, she is still there and replied w/in 1 day! She said they're training some new people right now and will assign them to each of Kimberly's brides as soon as they have completed training. She said Kimberly just left a note saying the job was too stressful, and she was out. Yikes! Anywho, good luck :)

also, is everyone getting a DJ for their reception? I was just going to use my Ipod to try to save some cost, is anyone doing that or is everyone hiring a DJ?!
Congrats kenlyn!! I'll be there till June 10th so I'd love to meet up w/you and Stephanie for a drink, if you'll be there before then!

From what I remember on here awhile back, you can do either of the meal options you suggested, but they said you will have to keep up w/who wants what if you want to do different ones for each person.

We're just doing the iPod thing. Its better for our budget, and both FI and I are way into music so we've put together a fantastic playlist of completely untraditional stuff to play from the beginning of the ceremony till the end of the reception. It was really fun to do together, too. I'm going to post my playlist on here: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...l-music-49407/ as soon as we wittle it down some more.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
