      Yep, yep he is very quick to reply and super nice. The only thing I know about his work is what is on his website.

        Thanks Lisa and Stacy!! Stacy you'll have to let us know how it goes next weekend! He seems great and I've heard nothing but great reviews so we should be good! Lisa, what time is your ceremony at? You're date is closer to mine and I'm worried about it getting dark on us. :)

        Happy FRIDAY everyone!

          Ok, the screen projector won't be provided if the reception is outside because of issues with wind.

                I also have this room map for the Royal, its from 2008, so I'm not sure if this is how the resort still looks, but just in case this is of value to any of you ladies.

                  My ceremony is at 4pm because light is important to me for pics.

                      Ok ladies, I am sooooooo PISSED! i began asking my WC about a cocktail reception and guess what? She tells me that there is another wedding booked for the gazebo at the same time as ours. The only thing that she can do is move or wedding up by one hour or move the location. What kind of sht is this? I told her they need to move the other wedding back an hour and her response was they booked 10 days before us. Our wedding has been booked since January and this is May! We have already spent so much on printing. I am absolutely furious. I am going to contact corporate. This is sooo unprofessional! How do you not remove a date/time for the calendar? I am absolutely FURIOUS! This is NOT ACCEPTABLE!
                      The Royal Playa del Carmen 12.11.10 / 46 people + bride & groom attended!!!!!
