Mine told me the same thing however I'm going to try and smuggle Fernando in without paying it, hehe.  It seems the on site coordinators are a little bit more flexible with things.  The WC we are dealing with now I think are following a "script" when they are answering our questions.  That's the impression I get anyways...

I just had a few questions about a few things, especially for those who are very near their big day, and for those who have already had the most amazing day of their life!!

We are from Calgary, and we are curious about the documents for the wedding. Our WC is telling us we don't need any documents translated into Spanish, and  apostilled (sp?), we just need our passports and customs card. This makes me nervous! I don't want to get there and have them say we can't get married!!!

Also, has anyone else found out that the DJ's have increased their prices? We found out that it's another $150 for his services!! I feel that it's crazy to have it jacked up, especially that we already booked him, so why the increase in price now?? Grr...

Any tips for the reception on the beach? (in front of Pelicano's). Did people have problems with wind??

Thanks for all the great ideas! This web site helps out with so much!!


Yeah my WC sent me updated prices too and ummm I didn't even glance at them, I'm paying what I was originally told, that's what we budgeted for etc.  I didn't even acknowledge the email and will be using all the original pricing we were sent.  I'm not letting it be an option.  I was quite annoyed they even sent me it.


This site is great, ask away.  I am having my reception on Pelicano's beach too! :)

Did anyone use them as the "travel agent" the wedding specialist Angie explained they could be used as our travel agent and the guests would call her directly to receive discounts associated with the stay for our wedding, but this wouldn't include a package as they would still have to get  the airfare on their own. I was just curious as to how others handled this? Any advice would be much appreciated




We were originally going to do this however as soon as we sent the contact info out we were assigned a new WC and we are now on our 3rd.  I was afraid that people's reservations etc would get messed up with the turn over. I have to sayy they have really gotten their act together the past few months though.  They are much more organized and seem to have a better system of doing things...

Hi ladies! I am really considering theb Royal for my wedding Feb. 19, 2012. I am still navgating and learning the forum, but, all your posts are really helping. One question, maybe you all can help. I have not gotten a straight answer on group room rates. Does anyone have an average ballpark figgure on what room rates are during this time for guests? I want to be sure my guests will be able to afford. Thanks so much!

Chicagobride2011....Thanks so much for the information, I guess I can just send out the information they give and guests can decide if that is something they want to go with....I was just curious if you think the discount is worth booking it separately (flight and vacation package) or if maybe a travel agent would be a better idea?

Thanks as well ChicagoBride2011! 


Lisa, your pics are amazing, I love them!!  Did you tell your coordinators ahead of time about having outside hair and makeup?  Did you have any trouble getting Fernando in?  Any advice would be great!

Lisa - Love the pics girl! You totally rocked it. I can't wait to meet Fernando!! I really like the eye makeup, very glamorous. 


Rissa - I used a travel agent. It just made more sense to me to have one person make arrangements for everyone. 


We have the luxury package and the photos & video are included. We're using their photographer but not during the ceremony so that person doesn't get in the way of our own photographer. 


So it seems that they changed their wedding menu? I wonder if we can make substitutions? 


To see pics of the resort photographer - search for LadyDi - she included pics theirs and her own. You can see the quality. Hope this helps! cheers.gif

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
