You are so funny lol. I think we had 24 people go and it was a little over 600 (however 150 of that was because we rented the cocktail tables setup). It was open bar for an hour,but really they let it go on for a lot longer lol.

Does anyone know if the table linens are included in the Luxury Wedding package at the Royal?  My guess is that they offer standard white ones, which is fine with me, but I just don't want to incur a bunch of extra charges when all is said and done and I noticed a listing for tablecloths and napkins in the a la cart wedding sheet file they sent me.

 

Also, has anyone used or heard anything about Funever photos? The photo vendor that is included (for the ceremony) at least? My family takes an insane amount of photos and although I don't want to assign anyone to "take pictures" that day, my FI and I are having trouble rationalizing the cost of having a photographer to document the whole day. The only thing I do want is some group pictures (we have about 35 guests) and then some of just us, our wedding party, and with our families. My guess is it would take about an hour to get these photos, but I can't figure out when to do that. I don't want to really ruin the "flow" of anything. Right now, we are scheduled for: 

  • Ceremony at the Gazebo: 4-4:30pm
  • Cocktail Hour at Gazebo: 4:30-5:30pm
  • Reception on beach: 5:30 - 9:30pm

 

Has anyone included a "break" in the schedule for pictures? I would like them taken on the beach.

Yes standard white linens are included, you'll get table clothes, napkins, chair covers, and white bows.  If you want to change the colors then it is extra.  There is also a standard centerpiece and dance floor.  The centerpiece is a candle and the dance floor looks like uneven ply wood, however I know some brides have gotten a nice dark brown dance floor included. 

 

I thought about a break but I didn't want to ruin the flow like you said.  We are going to take pics during the cocktail hour and are even considering see each other before the ceremony in order to take more pics.

I originally wasn't going to pay to get my make-up done, but I am beginning to change my mind.  I am thinking about the MAC counter idea.  If I go here (the US) first to get an idea of the right products, and then go down there...how much would that cost?  How much is Norma from Cancun, or Fernando?  We decided to go for the DJ so I need to budget in other areas now!

 

Thanks Ladies!!

 

Raveyn, you look amazing and so happy :)

Fernando is $350 (at least when I booked he was) for hair and makeup on wedding day.  It seems that recent brides got away with not paying the $350 vendor fee, I'm hoping I get lucky and the same thing happens. :)

i was married in Nov and I was just checking it to see what was going on....so i thought i might answer a few questions :)

 

1) if you are getting your dress pressed at the royal, i suggest asking about it right when you arrive.  it only takes 24 hours to do....but when they return it, you have to be in the room to check it out etc.  so just for your own sake, do it as early as you can so it can just be hanging in your room so you know everything is fine and you don't have to hunt it down.  i ended up getting my dress back the day before....but i remember waking up that morning being like "uhhh....when am i going to get it? and what if something is wrong?" but saying that - everything was just fine with it and when i called to check on it, they told me to wait in the room and they'd send someone with it right at that moment

 

2) here is our cake.  it was one of the options that came with the basic package.  its hard to tell just how big it is!! we had 60 people.....and probaly had about 1/2 the cake leftover! they brought a big chunk up to our room for us :) they "say" it feeds 35...but i don't recommend upgrading unless you have like 100 people

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) pictures - we did have almost a 2 hour break between our cocktail hour and reception.  i don't think you need quite that much, but iff you can make a break, i think it will be helpful so you don't feel as rushed.  don't worry about others and entertaining them, trust me there is plenty of stuff for them to eat/drink/relax! but it did help us get group photos on the beach, by the gazebo, and in town.  but what we did, as soon as the ceremony was over, we had everyone wait at the gazebo, pile in, and we took a group picture right there before people could scatter.  then at our cocktail hour, we made a point of taking pictures with me/husband with either individuals or couple or families, to get pics with everyone.  then after the cocktail, we did bridal party pics etc.

 

hope that helps!

one more thing - they really don't nickel and dime you.  linens are included with everything, don't worry!! we didn't run into any extra charges to be honest.....and just so you know. we brought our own white isle runner, that they taped down for us, then i used Maya floral, and they spread out the flower pedals i got from them, no big deal :)

Thank you Randi! Your answers are very helpful! So you were happy with your choice of marrying at The Royal? Did everyone have fun? (I can't imagine that not being the case!)

    • 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?
