I'm thinking like he would come a half hour before or so while getting ready...the ceremony won't be more than a half hour...then some time after to take pictures...
The photographer from the resort did take some pics of us too, and they came out good. I liked my photographer way better, but it could be because we spent more time with her. I think 2 hours is not enough time. I only say that because if you plan on them taking any pics during cake cutting, bouquet toss, etc. then you will need to rush it all in the very beginning of the reception or else they will miss it. We faked our cake cutting so we could get some good pics and then did our bouquet toss, etc. early so we wouldn't have to pay for more time. It worked out pretty well.

I am pretty sure SS office won't accept it unless its in English.
I went to the social security office and they want it in Spanish, because it has a official seal on it. they translate it there for free to determine if it is real. DO NOT PAY FOR THE EXTRA COST TO TRANSLATE IT! I know a lot of girls on here were talking about that, but you don't have to. I had no problems at all!

You can chose up to 3 people that you want to have access to your hotel at least 3 hours prior to the wedding for free. Make sure when you get there you tell them this. Zulma gave me this information when I was down there...would have helped earlier, but at least that rule exists!

Does it matter who these three people are? Relatives vs. a hair stylist?
I couldn't tell that the girls flowers were real touch. I am in Chicago too and may need that info. I love the florist that Di used, but I am so tired of adding a vendor's fee to everything. There are so many things i want to add but I keep seeing dollar signs in my head.

This is great to know since I am in Chicago too. Did you register your certificate with the county clerk or deeds/records?

Ok maybe I am slow, I can't figure out how to quote someone? I'll look it up after...

 

Jesmcan "Hi, non-resort guests don't need a day pass the price is just more for them. I am not sure what the rates are now but for example for the ceremony its $10 versus $5 per person if it is a non resort guest. For the cocktail its $20 instead of ten and for the dinner it was $60 instead of $30.

 

Hope that helps :) "

 

ChicagoBride2011 "Jesmcan is right, your guests do not need to purchase a day pass. You just pay more for cocktail and reception, I believe for Luxury pkg a non-guest is $60 for reception From what I hear they are allowed to come onto property 30 minutes before hand and if there is any breaks in between they have to leave. For example if your ceremony is at 2 and reception isn't until 6 they woud have to leave."

 

 

Thanks ladies. I'm hoping to have the ceremony at 6pm, then send everyone to the bar for a bit. Then we'll head to Kool Beach Club for 7:30 for our reception. This leads to... we aren't paying for anyone to have cocktails or reception at The Royal. Maybe we will have to set up cocktails to ensure everyone can stay and have a drink before we head to Kool.... hmmm I need to noodle this one over... and find a way to shove it back in the budget without the FI noticing....

If you look at the bottom of the post, you will see quote. Just click it before you type your message. If you want to multi-quote (like you sort of just did) click on mq for each post you want to quote and then click on quote on the last post you want to quote. I hope that makes sense?

She said it didn't matter. You just give them the names. If it is a vendor though like a hair stylist you will have to pay for them. Unless it is family or friend in which case you can probably get away with it.
The lady who did them did an amazing job. I can give you that info, just PM me.

No, I was thinking about registering it with the deeds/records only because if I happen to lose it down the road they can always reprint it for me at a fee, like a birth certificate.
