i'm getting married nov 11th, and i haven't been real active on the board, but i do read it every day and i love it.  i don't respond because most of the stuff i would say has already been said and i don't want to just repeat info :) i'm sorry to hear about all you with flight trouble! i'm sure when the day comes it will all get sorted out :)

 

we are leaving nov 6th, with the wedding on the 11th, returning on the 13th. we have 60 guests going and (cross my fingers) so far everything has been going great!! we invited everyone we would to a 'normal' wedding (about 200) and are very happy with our 60 going. we haven't had any problems, and our wedding coordinator denise has been awesome! for awhile it would take her a long time to respond, but as we got closer (about a month-2 months out) she has been responding within 24 hours. i don't have any complaints, which almost makes me nervous because i'm thinking its too good to be true and something will eventually happen! we are also trying to keep things rather simple and low key so we don't stress about things. instead of a rehearsal dinner, we are doing a private catamaran trip for everyone as kind of a thank you the night before the wedding. but since we are doing that, we aren't doing oot bags etc, which i think it making things easier because there is no worry of how to get it down there and to guests etc. but oot bags are awesome, and i know people would enjoy that too - so i'm also kinda bummed we aren't doing them :)

 

we are doing an AHR because most of the guests who are going to mexico are friends/family friends (besides our parents/siblings and a few aunts/cousins etc).  but the majority of my family isn't going and it is hard on my grandparents not to see me in my dress etc. so we were going to do just a small, happy hour type of AHR with drinks and appetizers on Dec 11th at a restaurant in town. we are going to wear our dress/suit and have pictures all around etc. we thought we'd keep it small, and my fiance is from milwaukee (we live in minnesota) but people keep telling us they will see us in dec! so we'll see what happens :)

 

but i just wanted to check in, and let future brides know that although many people do struggle with the wedding coordinators etc, i couldn't be happier. and i will definitely be writing a very lengthy review when i return because i know those were my favorite things to read :) i get SO excited when i find a new review, or find new pictures of someones wedding at the royal. thank you to all those who have posted reviews/pictures - those are what reassure me that i know our wedding will be perfect and our guests will have a great time. im not nervous about our wedding at all - i get nervous because we picked this resort/vacation and our guests are spending their money on what we picked! anyways, thanks again everyone for all your input!

bride2B22 - LOL  Yes I think the dance floor price is ridiculous too!!!  Grrr

They quoted me $750.  How long ago did you get the $700 quote?  I'll take a $50 discount!

 

Lisa - I didn't get in the pool at the Royal but when I was just in Puerto Morelos last weekend the water was cold!  It didn't matter though once you got in and got a drink in your hand!

 

Can't remember who, but someone asked me if I tasted the chicken at the food tasting...I did and it was really good too!  I didn't really like how it looked with the crab stuffed in there, but that's a dumb reason not to eat something!

 

 

 

Did I read correctly that some of y'all are having your guests are pick their entree (between filet, chicken, salmon, etc.) and then you will have a color coordinated place card so the waiter knows what they ordered?  If so, that makes dinner much easier!

I'm having Filet & Snapper (without the seafood stuffing, it is disgusting).  I'm having everyone's placecards tied to maracas.  The coral ribbon is going to be Beef and the teal ribbon is going to be for Snapper.

AHHH, I asked my WC about that cause we wanted the same thing, ceremony in the gazebo and reception in the gazebo area.  My WC never said anything about a 2 hour set up! I'm having a cocktail hour in another location and thought that would be plenty of time for them to set up tables. cause my cocktail hour doesn't start until a 1/2 hour after the ceremony.  She hasn't really answered me fully and I guess this is why.

It seems to me like I may be the only person with our wedding event set-up (mainly bc I don't want to deal w/sand).  We are having the ceremony at the Royal gazebo and the reception on the Royal gazebo patio.  I knew this was going to eventually lead to logistical problems, which the wedding coordinators are now understanding.  They have explained that in order for me to have the ceremony on the steps of the gazebo and chairs on the patio, I will need to change the location of the reception bc the tables for the reception will already be set-up.  Of course, I don't want the reception tables and chairs set-up during the ceremony, so we are looking into alternatives.  Maybe we will change the time of the reception to accommodate the 2 hours it takes to set-up.  We'll see what options she comes back with!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
