Hi all Royal brides!! Man, I haven't been on here in FOREVER so I'm playing a bit of catch-up and tried to MQ as much as I could. There's been lots of activity & new names on here since I last checked in! So great!
Update: We've booked and paid for our trip! June3-10, 2010! Soooo pumped! Now that we've done that I feel like we're almost there, ha!

Even though we're still very far out, do you all think that I should try to contact an actual WC at the Royal just to introduce myself? I remember reading that sometimes Doreen doesn't communicate well with the WC's and that it has resulted in double booking, etc.
VERY excited to officially have the date!!!!
CONGRATS to you, too, becks!!

One reason for this is because of the instable prices! I specifically asked during the online Webinar (was that in September I think?) if the prices and packages would be changing again because they seem to change somewhat frequently and at unexpected times. The answer was, "No. These are the packages and they will not be changing." That would make me very angry if I hadn't paid my deposit yet and so it seals the deal for us. As much as I'd totally and completely fallen in love with The Royal, perhaps we can come back another time for a vacation. I wish you all the very best of luck and the most beautiful weddings imaginable!!!
Just curious what other brides are doing ... How many days do you guys plan to be in Mexico for your entire trip? I think i'll be there for a total of 11 days, I'm not sure if that is too much or not enough. lol. Do you plan to stay at The Royal Resort for your honeymoon too or going to another resort or another location all together?
We're staying 7 nights (4 nights after the wedding) at the Royal. 11 would be amazing!

Hi fellow Royal brides,
It's been a while since I've been on the website...I'm one of those brides that isn't doing a whole lot of extra planning and just enjoying the stress free easiness that comes with a destination wedding. That being said...it is now Nov 7th, and my big day is coming FAST! (DEC 2). I've got some questions I'm hoping all you experienced BDW forum girls can answer... I'm going with the Luxury Package and was wondering if anyone that has already done this or some of you girls that might have the answers can help...
1) How much is it for day pass? Back when I first got on this site, I thought it was $100 - now it looks like it is $195 for the full day!! Seems steep..just wondering if anyone else got quoted less recently. I'm flying in a photographer, but he is staying at another hotel.
2) For the hairstyle and makeup included at the spa - do they have a lot of good make up to use or should I be bringing in my own? And for my hair, if I want a flower in it, do they supply that?
3) What is the Men's Face Saver?...
4) Did you find you needed extra decorations for the Gazebo or the beach reception? If so...does it cost quite a bit more to add to it?
5) Has anyone used the harpist during the wedding? I'm trying to decide if i want that or maybe the violin or saxiphone - any feedback? Also on this - how long do they play? Is it at the beginning of the wedding and then we use our own music for the actual wedding?
I know I probably have SO many more questions!! But guess I will go with this for now. Thanks girls!!!
I'm right there w/ya on the stress-free part! I can't believe how close you are!!!!!!!! So awesome! I don't have answers to all your questions, but I'm so excited for you!
4) I'm just sticking w/the all white (tablecloths & chair covers) and will bring some table decorations (they'll set up the decorations you bring for free). Colored ribbons for the chairs are $5/chair.

What form are you supposed to put that dance floor request? I haven't received a form, yet.

Good idea on showing her. Not that I know for sure or anything, but it kind of sounds like they didn't really want to be there so I'm sure that didn't help w/any kind of negative experience they came across.
Sorry this was so freaking long!
