I just got married on the 18th at the Royal and brought an ipod loaded with the songs we wanted. I broke it down into the following categories; wedding ceremony, wedding dinner music, wedding first dances, and wedding reception. We payed the money to have someone run the ipod and he was awesome. We put the ipod on shuffle and the rest was history. We figured we would have to do the work anyway to make a list of the songs we wanted, might as well save $800!

on another note.....anyone else of this recent news on the Mexican Pesos?
16 SEP 2010: Effective immediately all vacationers travelling to Mexico will be required to use Mexican pesos only. Other currencies, including Canadian and American dollars will no longer be accepted in the country.
The use of international credit cards is unaffected as transactions will continue to be processed in Mexican pesos, as per current practice.
It is recommended that travellers bring Mexican pesos and/or credit cards to avoid difficulties
We ran into this. Apparently they cannot accept anything more than $20 US. I believe they do offer currency exchange at the Royal.

Is this true?
I am not a picky person, but I do want to make sure that my guests are loving the beach!
Any feedback on this from you ladies that have been there?
I thought the beach was fine and didn't notice any sulfur smell. You do have to walk down a little ways because of the rocks, but the water is really nice! They have had issues with errosion since the last time I was there 2 years ago, but there was still plenty of lounge chains.

Fernando and his team are AMAZING!!! And fast!! I would say they were both done in about an hour or an hour and 15 minutes. I loved the way my hair and make up looked and I gave no direction. I paid $60/person for them to come to my room. Apparently you are allowed 3 or 4 non guests to come to your room 3 hours before the wedding as long as they don't have equipment. Not sure how that differs from a photographer, but oh well. We had a great time with my girlfriends watching me get ready with a few bottles of champagne involved :-).
