    diane,

    yeah i've always wanted to get married on the beach. All mexican beaches are public so they can't really tell people to not walk through the ceremony... we're depending on their common sense! i've heard stories about topless women sunbathing near the ceremony. i guess it will be a matter of luck. i am getting married at 4pm on a holiday weekend so hopefully there won't be too many people but that will take some luck! Lol

      I haven't been in contact with the coordinator in Mexico, and my wedding is April 22nd. So I wouldn't be too concerned if I were you. My travel agent told me I will hear from them like 2 weeks out. I have already paid for mine in full and picked out everything that I could with the US coordinator, I have Doreen. So now we just wait to hear from the coordinator in Mexico. Although, I am not sure there is a lot she can do for me until I get there..

        For you ladies having ceremony on the beach: you picked it for very good reasons and it sounds very romantic! I'm sure there will be some gawkers, but when it comes down to it, you probably won't even notice (and neither will your FI because he will only be staring at you :-). I told my MOH about that notorious topless woman on the sidelines at someone's wedding and she said "nuh uh! I will run over there and tell her to move!" LOL.

        It will be beautiful no matter what,and hey, there is always photoshop lol.

          Does anyone know how fast they setup the cocktail reception and dinner receptions? I'm having having everything at gazebo and beach, so I was wondering if the tables are already set up during ceremony or if they wait until the cocktail reception?

          Oh and lol does anyone worry that their family will be placed near your suite? I read a review on another resort where the bride specifically asked not to be placed near her family, but it was mixed up and her parents were NEXT DOOR. So they basically shared a wall the night of the wedding lol. AWFUL~!

            Thank you for the info!!
            LOL no kidding! I was figuring to do the same thing. Hopefully, Carole will still be there by the time I'm ready to send in my info...

            When Kimberly R left, I just sent an email to Carole (mgr or at least was a couple months ago) asking who will be my new WC bc no one contacted me carolec@realresorts.com
            Good luck!

              If you're guests are staying at the Gran, there is no extra charge since it is a Real Resort :)

              Why is it that the brides getting married at REAL resorts have to constantly do the job of the Michigan WCs
              They told my friend she left for family reasons. Of course they'd never say for DWI if that's true.

              I'm trying to get her to join this board so she can share her planning with everyone but she's in her last semester of grad school IE no life haha! I can communicate thru her!
              Oh man! Grad school & planning a Real Resort wedding
              Thanks for posting these links, I had never seen these. Now I have a lot to think about. iIdefinitely think I like the gazebo at the Gran better, just not sure if it's available. Also, all of my guests are staying at the Royal. I guess that would be a bit difficult to haul them all over there.
              now, i am nervous about all of my gran and non resort guests coming to my wedding...i was told that they won't have a problem attending my wedding. i'm getting married on the beach. i am really hoping that there won't be too many people on the beach. i can't change my ceremony to another location and that sucks.
              on the food, there is a couple of reviews on it...i guess you have to go back in the thread and find it. it was jesmcan and other bride, i can't remember.
              I just looked up Jesmcan's review last nite, lol. It's on pg 207

              And the other review is here

                AHAHAHAHA! That's exactly what I was thinking w/the MOH! My sister would be all about that!
                And photoshop, totally!

                I read awhile back that Stephanie was told the tables would be set already on the beach if she had the wedding at the gazebo & reception on gazebo beach, but I bet you can make that not happen. Or at the very least have it moved off to the side a bit so it isn't in the view of the ocean/wedding.

                LOL, we're definitely going to try our hardest on this one! Not that we don't love the fam, but you know! Luckily, the master OF suites are kinda separated from the other suites so we should be good.
                If you have a Royal category suite (which I'm pretty sure they are all Royal category after the renovations), you can pick your exact suite so just tell them you're staying in another number

                  I have a little update on Suzanna. She is on a "family leave" and they are not sure if she will return. When I called, Aja answered the phone and knew who I was and all about my wedding. She said that she is covering my wedding for Suzanna until she returns, if ever. She gave me more information than I had before. I had no idea my checklist was supposed to be turned in 60 days prior (which is like today!). I'm glad I called!

                    It's not required to turn in until 45 days so you have time. I don't know why she told you 60 days.
                    I'm glad she knew all your info, though, YAY!!!
