He suggested that we take those who want to keep the party going to the Blue Parrot. Our wedding is on a Friday and they have a nightly beach party here with fire dancers on Friday nights. Supposedly this is the place to go, so we shall see.
I think this is what we are doing. We have a small group, so after the reception I want to see the Fire Dancers.


I have a document at home that has the measurements of the aisle, I will post it later.

Do the flowers have to be freeze dried or fresh I assume? They probably won't allow fake flowers, since they would blow away?

Thanks ladies for all the feed back re reception length. I think I will extend the time. I am thinking of hiring the lounge furniture from Cancun, and I think that is $2k, and then the DJ with the floor is god knows how much more, so I will likely extend it to make it worth the the $$ spent. Also, since Playa has become such a "hot spot" lately, I heard that Blue Parrot and Congo Bongo is outrageous in their cover fee - supposedly $50!! I remember reading that it someone's post. Although, I think I would speak to the manager on shift that night and explain that the size of the party and the alcohol bought would more than enough cover any type of entrace fee they were planning on making that night, lol!

 

I just have to vent and express how irritated I am. We visited Royal Playa in 2007 and at that time had decided on destination wedding. The following year we casually inquired about pricing. Albiet, that was two years ago, I am still flabbergasted at the inflatation of prices. $350 vendor fee??!! Come on, seriously! The price of photographers and DJ's are almost more than I'm paying for our wedding in Vancouver.

 

I still haven't heard back from the US office re my date for the wedding. I see that it is also still available to select on the website!!! F$#%!$!$#$!

When we were just in Playa this past November we were able to do $30 pp including open bar at Coco Bango!! Granted it was a guy that I found on 5th but it was a great time. I would look for this guy. I can't believe since I booked last July the vendor fee has gone from $100 to $350!!!!!!!!!! I guess the problem is people are willing to pay so they just keep hiking the prices. Totally and absolutely ludicrous.

Hey ladies, just wanted to pop in for a quick sec and upload the new resort map I found on playa.info. I think LynnieS posted the resort fact sheet awhile back (sorry if it was someone else worried2.gif), but this one is a lot clearer and all by itself.

Is anyone that is working a travel agent to book everyone's trip getting any comps? My agent said that if we have 30 rooms booked for the same dates our room will be comped for the same days. Unfortunately right now we are looking only 23 rooms booked. I just feel like we are giving both the the travel agent and Royal a lot of business not to get anything comp'ed or discounts.

I was curious about that as well. The Royal is the frontrunner for me right now but i will have a large wedding of about 100+people so not only do I need a resort that can handle that many but I would love to get something out of all that business

Hey ladies, I feel like I've been so absent lately!!

Does anybody know, how do the cocktails work for the reception? Do they have a bar set up right there and is there a limited assortment of drinks? I'm making my menu right now and wanted to include a "signature drink". Taking a fun poll. . . anybody else have a signature drink and what is it?

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
