I think it really depends on where you are in your cycle, thatâ€s how sensitive you'll be to pain. Just take 2 tylenols before! I was embarrassed at first but then you remember that this is what they do for a living and mine isn't the first one they saw LOL
Ok, if waxing hurts more then I'm gonna do the laser lol. I'll just order the topical cream and take some tylenols like you suggested lol.

Lisa I had the same question! but did not know how to ask it I am glad you did lol so should I do a test run? I did not even think about that. I better get on that. I was going to get it done again the day before we leave.

I was supposed to do whole nine yards brazilian wax but i chicked out and had the landing strip. I never did it before so the lady told me to get the strip until i am used to it. HOLY COW BALLS. That's all I have to say. Like Jenny, I am getting ingrown hairs and it sucks. I have been using Bliss No Ingrown hair product so it is supposed to be helping. I did it three days before the wedding and I had no problems. I also applied "No scream" Bikini wax cream 30 min before and took two tyenlols.

thanks for the info on the table seating #s! i had no idea! i would have randomly guessed 8-10 to a table. good to know they are small tables.

also, on the issue of food, i was told by my WC (Rebekah) that i can choose 2 entrees by doing 1 regular entree and a vegetarian entree. that's the only way i was told i could do 2 (and i asked several times). so i am going with the beef tournedo and the eggplant cake. that is the choice for the main meal that i am giving everyone. hope this helps.

also, i am wondering if anyone was a november/december bride and can comment on having the reception on the beach versus in the central garden at The Royal. Ceremony at 4, cocktails at 5 in garden & reception 7 on the beach.
My two issues are
1) is it going to be cold & windy? don't want to freeze anyone out & i know my mom gets cold when i'm not cold!
2) the lighting for photog & just generally seeing people. i know there are lights under the table but not sure about other lighting & i was thinking that maybe the garden would be better lit? but i like the privacy of the beach. if anyone has any opinions, they are much appreciated!!

thanks again!

I was posting on the waxing thread but it's more comfortable with my fellow Royal/Gran brides. Jess I heard to get a test run, with plenty of time for it to grow back. The 'growing out' phase is what I'm most nervous about. Yes on the tylenol (so I've been told). The lady I'm going to explains it pretty good if you're nervous: Bikini Waxing Las Vegas It puts a light hearted twist on it (just ignore the start when it talks about Vegas).

I'm having the same issue bc I know not eveyone in my group eats meat.
I chose half beef and half chicken and I am going to place the cards on a table. First come first serve. Whoever picks up their card first will have a choice and they will take them to their table and place them in a bucket for the waiters to collect. This way I avoid a seating chart and another headache. Most people didn't mind either way so whomever is last will have to settle.
I hope this helps.

Hi! Does anyone have a formal statement from the hotel regarding the dress code that I see mentioned here (but was never told by my WC or on the website!)? Can guys wear nice sneakers? Are there any restaurants at The Royal or Gran Porto that do not have a dress code?

THANKS!
