    So how long is the beach at the Gran going to be under construction? Is it an eye sore? What exactly are they doing?!

      Lady_Di,
      When you went to visit did you sample the meals for the wedding? My WC sent me the meal choices and none of them sound all that appetizing in total, but I believe it is probably just a translation problem. What exactly is a Beef Tornado! :) Also, I had seen on other girls' posts that there was a surf and turf option. My menu only included shrimp, red snapper, and beef options. Anyone have any insight on this? Perhaps I need to request an upgraded menu or something?

      Thanks,
      Ashley

        hi ladies! my wedding date is set for june 10, 2010 at the royal PDC and i am doing the luxury pkg..

        do we have to pick only one menu option for our guests, or can we pick 2 or 3 options and ask our guests and just keep track of who wants what?

        also, is everyone getting a DJ for their reception? I was just going to use my Ipod to try to save some cost, is anyone doing that or is everyone hiring a DJ?!

          Just heard about the beach thing, has anyone found out when the construction will be done? That SUCKS, the beautiful beach is one of the main reasons we choose these resorts.
          KENLYN 8984: congrats on booking your date! I think you can have more than one option but you need to know ahead of time what your guests want to eat and put it in your seating chart for the hotel. As for DJ, with the prices going up, we decided just to load our ipod as I was told the sound system is included for your entire wedding in the luxury package. The only downfall is that you only get 3 hours for reception in luxury package and they will take your musicd away after this time but I've heard with a DJ you can stay longer. Hope that helps!

            Hey! One day before me! I am arriving on June 9! We should get a drink!

            I don't know if we are getting a DJ or not yet... I was waiting to see what our final numbers were...

              hey girlies so i called the resort today and found out that they said the construction will be for about another 10 days... so i felt alittle beetter but who knows. I am having the beef/salmon and vegetarian(pasta) option for my guests putting it in with the reply cards for the invitations so everyone has a choice. Having one choice of beef is just not what we want to do.. We tasted everything and it was all very good. I was impressed. Im doing ivan gomez and since we booked him before the prices changed we will be paying the same amount as before. We are doing to ult luxary package and just sent my save the dates out and we invited 300 people soo we might be in trouble haha

                Beef/salmon option? My menu options did not include that. Is there an upgraded menu that I was not sent?

                Thanks.

                  I'm throwing around the DJ idea too, they are just so expensive!! I have a friend who is a DJ and I am thinking about sending him and ipod and having him load it...LOL

                    Hello Jesmcan!!

                    I'm in the midst of trying to figure out what time I want the photographer to be there prior to the ceremony. I just saw this post and saw that you are booking your guy for eight hours. Ideally I would like to have him taking pics of me getting my hair and makeup done etc... but I don't want him to get there too early where he's just not taking any really good shots. What time have you asked him to arrive? Also, what time is your ceremony?


                    Any info is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

                    Diana

                      We orginally decided on ipod but then we realized that our guests are coming all way down to Mexico to have fun so we decided to hire DJ Ivan Gomez so he can keep the party going on. I would hate to assign someone to do ipod duty. Fortunately, i booked him before the new policy went into effect.
