Does anyone have any suggestions to which resorts would be a good choice that allows kids to attend the wedding and reception other than Royal?

You could also check into Dreams Cancun and Dreams Tulum, which allow children.

Also, I think I read one of your posts saying that you are coming from Toronto... I have family members coming from Toronto, and I was wondering how you booked everything... did you use a travel agent?

Initially we spoke to the WC at the Royal over the phone, but then moved to email. I started out talking w/ Paty (the old WC), but am now emailing w/ Zulma, the current WC at the Royal. Her email address is email@example.com
We didn't use a travel agent to book, but did our own booking online. We did talk to a few travel agents, but were able to find better prices ourselves online.
Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm leaving two weeks today for my wedding (yikes!) so let me know if you or any of the other girls need me to look into anything. I'll also be sure to post a review and pics when we get back.

If you don't mind me asking, I was wondering what other resorts that allows kids, have you considered, and why you decided to go with the Royal... Did you do a site visit? In your opinion do you think it is a necessary step to take?
Thanks and Congratulations again!!!

I looked at pretty much every 4 1/2 - 5 star in the area through TripAdvisor. I looked at Dreams Cancun and a few others in Cancun, but my preference was for a smaller place like Playa del Carmen. I know a lot of girls have done site visits and have found them really helpful. I personally didn't do a site visit nor have I been to Playa del Carmen (although I have been to Mexico and have travelled a lot). To me it's more exciting this way, but that's just a personal preference. A lot of girls prefer going and checking into a few properties.
I would suggest emailing Zulma again to see about the date you are interested in or perhaps phoning. The communication hasn't been the best and I find you do have to persist a bit w/ emails or be quite patient.
The main reason I decided on the Royal was that it was a five star that I loved the look of and had excellent reviews, and w/ the option of kids being next door. I loved the look of a few other properties, but they were mostly adults only, which didn't work for me. Having the sister property next door that allows children (and children for the wedding day at the Royal) was a big draw for me. Another big plus for me was the location right by 5th ave and the fact that the beach doesn't seem to have the erosion problems that I read about for some others.
Hope that helps!
