    I think it is extra for a four course meal, adding soup, so be careful. I did not think soup was worth the extra money. I cant remember the exact price but it is on the royal's wedding website

    I am also doing classic and upgrading as needed. It ended up being cheaper for us even have 50 guests! We are simple people and didn't need a whole lot extra
    yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

      so again I'm sorry but we all seem to have gotten different answers for the canapes and food choices. I am not having my reception at the royal anymore so even with out the ultimate luxury package I was told you get 4 choice for the cocktail hour. I sent Zulma my choices and three were hot and one cold and she said no problem. I had her put it in writing so I don't its extra for the hot apps. Again who knows though.

      Oh yes ladies wondering about cake options the tres leches was amazing! it was very buttery and moist and very light. I just loved it!.

      I am worried about giving my dress and having them steam it. I don't know why but my worst fear is that something would happen. Has anyone considered bringing their own steam machine? Someone suggested I do this but I have never even used one. Wondered if you guys had any thoughts on this?
      When did you decide to not have your reception at the Royal? Did I miss something? So sad to hear!! I am NOT giving them my dress!!! Way too scared and yes I am bringing my own steamer. I found a handheld steamer in a magazine for very cheap ($30)
      yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

        A couple of the girls have mentioned that the tres leches flavor is really awesome, so I think we will prob go with that. Dont know about other flavors though.
        I was hoping to have the tres leche cake as all the reviews said it was so delicious...however I was informed today it is not an option anymore due to a melting issue
        38 Guests booked!

            I called and asked about it a couple weeks ago and they said the tres leches cake wasn't on the list because most people that aren't from Latin America don't know what it is. But they said if it is requested it is definitely available. I hope this hasn't changed!!!!!

              Hi LynnieS, I chose not to have it back in December. I just could not deal with the way the office was handling everything and I did not feel confident enough. In addition after going on our site visit we decided we wanted something more private. But we are doing our ceremony and cocktail hour at the gazebo and garden and most of our guests are staying at the Royal. We rented out Kool Beach Club right next door for our reception.

              Wow thanks about the steamer, I'm doing that than lol.

                Oh, jesmcan, I did know that! That place looks AMAZING! Good choice

                Has anyone thought about doing disposable cameras and having the guests take pics? Wonder if I could get those down in Mexico so I don't have to travel with them?
                yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

                  Here's a thread about what some other brides used
                  This is exactly what I thought, too. Remember when they said they had a "big meeting" a few weeks ago? I mean, I HOPE they are, but we shall see.
                  I'm w/you ladies on this one, lol. We shall definitely see!

Our wedding date is finally correct on it...my FI last name is still spelled wrong, my address is wrong and the type of wedding is listed as religous and it's not. But I'm not picky as long as the date is correct I will sign it and fax it back!

                  We also booked our rooms today, even though the prices still aren't out. And Saturday we booked our flights. I can finally say I feel like I am going to have a wedding! : )

                  So good to hear everyone's feed back, as we all have the same concerns!
                  YAY!!! I'm so glad they FINALLY sent it to you! I can't believe those parts are still incorrect, though. I mean seriously, come on!

                  Are you guys doing both then??
                  We're just doing the free cake that comes w/the package since there is dessert. I'm not a big cake person, anyway, so that's not something I'm willing to pay more for.
