That also explains why the wedding department is overwhelmed!

    I can not stress enough to have your guests book ASAP and that if the resort sells out-which is highly likely- that they are responsible to pay the day pass!

    That should get them to hurry up!

    Thanks Jennifer - very helpful for everyone!!!

      [QUOTE=As far as I know, the alcohol is included in the dinner price (except for the champagne toast, which is like $5 or so per real resort guest). I'm not 100% sure on exactly what is included in the bar. I just assumed the same stuff thats available for all-inclusive will be available at the reception bar. Anyone know this for sure?[/QUOTE]


      That's my understanding as well. Since the resort is all-inclusive, the alcohol is in the price...

      That gets me thinking though - anyone know if there is a bar set-up a the reception (like, right on the beach if that's where the reception is)?

I am not sure if my wedding planner has had these problems, mostly she has been fighting with Air Canada, because they are not very good with their customer service.

        Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone had any advice about the age restriction at the resort. I know it is 16+, but my FI has an uncle who wants his daughter to come, she will be 15 and a half. Do you think they are flexible with the age a bit, or are they super anal about it?

        Thanks!

        Shirley -

        The Royal is an adults only resort, meaning guests have to be 18+. Those under 18 and families can stay at the Gran Porto and attend the wedding ceremony and reception.

                Yes there is a bar set-up right on the beach where the reception is. We saw it when we went on our site visit. All the prices do include open bar. The bar is set up beautifully. The one we saw was three tiers and they lit it up. It looked besutiful at night.

                  That is very cool! I can't wait to see it all set up!

                  Not sure if anyone spoke of this but what is everyone getting for their parents gifts? I was thinking of doing something with the spa, but I don't know if that is too little.

                    I was also wondering if anyone is getting married on the beach? I see so many talk about getting married in the gazebo, just curious about the beach. My fiance doesn't know why we would go to Mexico to get married if we aren't standing in the sand. :P Is it a privacy preference that people tend to use the gazebo more?

                    Thanks!

                      I am getting married on the beach because I've always wanted to get married on the beach. Lot of brides use gazebo because of onlookers but a beach wedding will guarantee you onlookers. I am okay with that as long they aren't walking around NUDE!!!
