    FOR PRIVATE AND SEMI-PRIVATE RECEPTION

    SALADS
    Royal seafood salad perfumed with plum & peach oil (SP-1)
    Was very fishy and the one we had was infused with jasmin, the presentation is amazing but it did not taste that great
    Avocado stuffed with crab pulp au fresh dill vinaigrette (SP-2)
    This one the dill
    very over powering but again beautiful presentation

    Spinach souffl© with blueberry sauce au white wine flavor (SP-3)
    I think this is the best choice, fish can be hard not everyone likes it

    MAIN COURSES
    Shrimps au sherry served with jambalaya rice (SP-1)
    Red snapper Fantasy stuffed with seafood & black caviar cream (SP-2)
    Beef fillet tournedo with fresh wild mushrooms sauce (SP-3)
    The beef was cooked perfectly, presentation was amazing def! go with this one, you will love it, again the other ones are just tough because the majority may not like it

    DESSERTS
    Baked pear stuffed with almond mousse (SP-1)
    Paris chocolate shell stuffed with fruit au white Cinzano flavor (SP-2)
    The chocolate shell is amazing, they make it all right than and there. I can't remember where my presentation is but I have a link to pictures and this is one of them. It was an amazing dessert and would go perfectly with cake.
    Cannoli trio stuffed with praline & raspberry coulis (SP-3)


    here is the link for pics from my site visit - http://www.shutterfl....bbd47cbb382743

    hope this helps :)
    that is so great - i really appreciate your input!! :)

      WTF?! Dang, that sucks! Not surprising, though
      so, i asked for a quote for a flower centerpiece without a vase...it's all hot pink roses in a vase. they are $70 each WITHOUT the vase. that is really crazy so i am going with a local florist who is quoting me $55 each with a vase rental. i had wanted this style of the cake but they said no on that. i'm really annoyed...it is my wedding, not their wedding. its starting to feel like a wedding factory to me. i am starting to think that i should have just booked my wedding at non inclusive wedding resort so i can have control over the details. oh well.
      Sheesh! That is ridic!! I wonder if the resort would work with you more than the Michigan peeps. At least on the cake, anyway. Maybe ask Zulma when she gets w/you 30days out if they can do something close to what you want?

      FMIL just threw us a shower over the weekend and did more of a party vibe/get together instead of a regular shower w/games. She put a fishbowl type jar on the table w/sand, shells & beachy items inside for money gifts and slips of paper & ribbons for people to leave notes tied around the money. Maybe that could be a compromise?
      Or you could do a lingere shower? Your guests can get some pretty affordable, cute items for that.

        I just looked on tripadvisor, and I guess there is 2 locations. I'm going to send an email to the address (edmundocouture@hotmail.com) listed on the page for the location on 5th Avenue (closest to Royal/GPR) and see if they book for the other location, too.

            I didn't ask about makeup/hair, but I did ask about manis/pedis. If they reply back, I'll ask them. I did ask about hours of operation and how many appts can be made for the same time, massages & mani/pedi (if they do those). I'll post any answers I get. I just hope its the right email! There are phone numbers on there, too, but I'll have to try those later today after work.

              Hey Ladies,

              I haven't been on this site forever, just tried to read through all the posts that I've missed but there are so many! Only 4 weeks & 4 days until we leave, I can't believe we've been engaged for over a year and a half and now it's almost here! Anyhow, just wondering what are you all planning on tipping your WC, musicians, bartender & waiters for your wedding? On a side note, got our final bill back with wrong price (overcharged) and wedding date, the price has been fixed but date is still wrong on our bill, trying to be patient and not freak out here...

                Have any of you booked DJ Doremixx to be your DJ? From all of the various reviews I've read, he sounds awesome. Would we go through the Wedding Coordinator to reserve him or contact him directly?

                  Since Doremixx is the DJ they use at the Royal, I booked through the hotel. It is technically the same price...BUT if you don't book them through the hotel, they charge a $350 outside vendor fee! Yikes

                    We booked him directly before the resort changed their policy of booking DJs so if you want to book him, you have to go through the wedding coordinator.

                      looks like we're upgrading from a semi-private reception (at one of the resort restaurants) to a private reception on the beach. what do you ladies know about the setup, decorations or services provided? again, we're at the gran porto - we were initally told that the only dinner seatings (for the semi-private) were at 6pm and 9pm. our ceremony is at 6, so we had to do the 9pm. i'm really hoping to be able to get an earlier start on dinner now! thoughts?
