I am using Marvin from .::: Maya Diseño Floral Profesional :::. Flores y Plantas Exóticas His prices are reasonable so far.

I am interested to know about the music at the ceremony! Can you let us know when you get the answer?

This is my first post. It has taken me almost a month, but I think I have finally read through all the posts! I wanted to make sure I did not ask questions that may have already been answered several times, lol. This forum, and the ladies on it, have been so helpful! I initially wanted to do a DW so I would not have to plan anything, doesn't seem to be the case! My FI and I are from different religious backgrounds so we are having a religious cermony of three hundred guests in Vancouver, and aprox 35-50 guests in Playa. I went from not wanting to plan a wedding to having to plan two weddings! To add to that, we too have had to change our wedding date from April 2011 to Nov 2010 due to price difference for our guests. I'm sure you can imagine that mad scramble I'm going through now trying to plan two weddings in seven months!

I have stayed at the Royal before so am familiar with ground layout, etc. Some of the questions I do have:

1. Re lounge furniture - I saw a post that mentioned that they used the Royal's for $250-300. I was initially going to rent mine from another outfit that charged aprox $2000 (used by several other posters). Can someone give me more info about the Royal's lounge furniture and how it compares.

2. Re DJ - does the Royal use DJ Doremixx? If so, is it cheaper to book him privately, even while paying the $350 vendor fee

3. I have not received any communication from an WCs. Everything was booked through a travel agent. Is this normal?

4. I'm in the same boat as many other ladies - the Luxury Package is what I initially was going to go for, but there are alot of services - mani/pedi, hair/makeup, photo, etc, that I will not use - are we still able to book a four course private reception?

Lastly, I have not posted enough to open the attachments. Can someone be kind enough to email the wedding and price checklist, and this cake list that everyone is talking about, lol. srn_luna@hotmail.com

Thanks a bunch ladies!
If I were you, I would call the Michigan office and/or go online to submit your info through their wedding site. I did this after we changed travel agents and someone contacted me.

Last I heard, if you wanted to use Ivan with Doremixx, you HAD to book through The Royal. When we booked him, he told me that anyone in the future had to go through the resort, per The Royal. Maybe thats changed in the past few months though??

Good Luck with everything!

Hmm I dont think asking for a playlist is unreasonable. I mean, I understand not wanting to play something you are unfamiliar with, but come on, I'm sure we all want a say in what is played at OUR OWN (OUT OF OUR OWN POCKETS) wedding. I kinda feel this way about the legal ceremony and not being able to have sand ceremony. :-(

2Mckee and others - I sent Zulma what I wanted played at the ceremony. I am doing Ave Maria and I was able to find a clip on solo guitarist which is what we are doing for our ceremony. I did not have an issue sending them this.

 

Marvin from Maya Diseno is great there is also Euphoria Eventos Y Arte Floral Euforia Cancun Wedding Planner - Outdoor Events and Lighting Design They are a bit pricier but do amazing work

We can't do the sand ceremony for a legal ceremony!!huh.gif WTF! Did they give you a reason why? Do you know if that means we can't add a reading/poem either?

    • 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
