    Julia, thank you for the insight and it makes me to appreciate what photographers do! I understand more why they are so expensive!

      How are all you ladies paying for your photographers, especially if you are using one from Mexico? Mine asked for the full amount, in cash, before he even starts. Is this normal? FI says pay only half and the other half when we get our pics. What does everyone think?
      yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

        That is the great thing about playa you can neotiate and let them know what you can pay :) I know it can be a hassle but in the end they really are very reasonable in getting as close to your budget as possible.
        Yes Linda is amazing I was going back and forth with her for ahwile regarding pricing information for reception and she was very helpful.
        Even though it was more money than The Royal, I felt like it was worth it, but my fiance didn't want to have it at a non-resort.

            Ya it is a tough decison and non-reosrt depending can be more work to. In the end the decision you make is the best for you and it will be the best day ever :) wherever you have it

              We paid over Paypal. Half was due at the time the contract was drawn so basically ASAP. The other half was due 30 days out.

                We are paying in full before the wedding.

                    ChicagoBride, we are thinking about ordering koozies for our guests but not sure if they are worth it at The Royal. Are they? I am not sure how drinks are served in a bottle, can or glass!

                      Hey all - FI and I will be heading to The Royal Saturday. I can't wait to check out the place, get some answers and decisions out of the way. Let me know if you have any pressing questions. I meet with Lili on Tuesday. Yippee!
