Whoa, lots to catch up on. Jess, I'll be emailing you, wow!!
Hi Averie! I'm getting married the 10th of October! I'll fill you in when we get back. Welcome to the board, it's amazing what you find out on here, I would have been lost without it!

My fiance and I have stayed at the Royal before so we know its really great! Just never thought we'd get married there!! We are also timeshare/members there.... which should help our family/close friends out who might otherwise not be able to afford it. Nevertheless, we are getting some resistance from family members. Grr
Anyway, I wanted to introduce myself and ask:
Is there anyone on here getting married at the Royal Playa next Oct 2011? Or has anyone on here gotten married in Oct of a previous year? Just wondering about the weather during that time of year...
I haven't read this entire thread yet, but I will....
then I'll have more questions!
Nice move, I thought about doing the same thing and wish I would have!!!

As far as I know the only other one that includes a minister if if you do the Catholic one at the Royal in Cancun...
Also, I just reserved my DJ the other day and DJ Doremixx is who is being reserved for us....we just said we wanted the DJ and as far as I know he is the "house DJ"

Hey I have a recommendation from Lady Di, PM me and I'll send it to you!
What do any of you know about Maria Maria? I want some kind of rehearsal but think it's TOTAL BS to have to pay extra, UGH! I have some more questions if any of you can help me out.
Do we have to provide them with a script for the ceremony? Are you all having your BM's and GM's stand the whole time (not that it's very long anyways) or are you providing them chairs?
We have a violinist playing during the ceremony, do I tell them what songs I want (especially down the aisle) or do they just play what they play?
Thanks ladies. I'm 3 weeks out and going a little NUTS!
