This is my opinion to why they are making you pay the extra $100. This policy of paying the vendor's fee if you book directly was probably made so that The Royal makes money. Basically, if you book him direct and pay no vendor's fee then the resort gets nothing (and we ALL now how they feel about getting as much as they can!). Now, since the new price list in December, they are all working together, overcharging us and splitting the profits. I am booking through him and don't have to pay the extra fee but-hell-I'm paying about $1600 for him and the floor.

Beachbum & Diane P.,
I do think I'm going to hand the OOT bags out. That way, I won't have to check with everyone to make sure they got their bags or if everything was in them. Beachbum, I love the knocking and running! Too funny!
I think I paid 1550 or 1600 for his service (not booked through resort). I haven't inquired as to whether or not there would be the 350 dollar vendor fee (but there BETTER not be). I did notice that this is for 3 hours and not the 3-4 listed through the Royal.

Ladies who are getting married in 2011. What are you finding is the avg Price per person you guests are spending on the trip? I am narrowing down resorts and the cost to my guest is one factor. A ballpark would be awesome! Thanks!

PS This forum rocks and is so helpful!

Hi I am getting in 2010 but when I was looking in 2009 rates did not very that much from 2010. What month are you looking for?

January is really expensive compared to other months so some ties rates can really vary depending on the month your looking into.

We just changed our wedding date this week due to 2011 prices coming out. For Real lowest room rate from Jan-end of March was $488/night. I didn't want my guests paying that, so it was worth it just to move it up to December. Check out their website, 2011 rates are listed.

Flights really fluxuate depending on the area and all...our flights right now are about $470 from Albany-Cancun.

LOL thanks. Go right on ahead! This is just how we act sometimes so it fits our personality.




And this is what sucks so much cause I can fathom forking out $700 for a dance floor as *much* as I want to. Guess I'll be dancing in the sand!

Di, no problem & thanks for all of the measurements. You totally rock!

Beachbum, I felt like that too, but after seeing so many pics, I gotta have it! LOL!

Lisa, when did you book? I'm sure you have the dance floor too, right?

I'm so glad this worked out for you. I went through the same stress of changing mine from Jan 1 and I'm so relieved, I'm sure you are as well (now that it is done).

Then you should not have an outside vendor's fee!

Hi ladies,

 

I have reserved the gazebo for my wedding, and then the gazebo terrace for the reception. Does anyone have pics of the terrace? I am having second thoughts. Perhaps the garden would be better. My FI doesn't want to do the beach, so thats out. Any thoughts, pros and cons, to the locations? Any help from the ladies who did site visits would be great!!!

 

Also, does anyone know the max number of people that can sit inside the gazebo comfortably?

 

Thanks for the help! I tried to email the WC in michigan but you know how that goes...

    • 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
