      Lisa you looked so beautiful and everything looked perfect :) I am so happy La Tortuga was awesome for you :) I can't wait to see more pics lol

       

       

      Viola planning any wedding can be overwhelming lol

       

      1. Even though I had a pretty large wedding I have heard on here a lot about the small semi-private and at teh Royal they are very willing to accomodate you. You can have it at one of the restaurants if it is 15 or less. If it goes above that there are plenty of choices and way to continue to keep the cost down. How many are on your guest list now?

       

      2. Hair/Make up has very mix reviews. Some people have had amazing experiences and other not so much at the Spa. I think ti all depends on what you really want. I really wanted to be in my room relaxing with my girls so I opted for an outside hair and make up person. I used Fernando from the make up pros who was amazing!!!!! and it was worth every penny. he is costly though. So I would say if your hair is good in hot weather and your not to picky and don't mind going to the Spa go for it. But if yours turns into an afro like mine lol in hot weather and want to stay in your room its worth paying for someone to come.

       

      3. I think a photographer is the most important thing about a destination wedding. That is the person that is going to capture those moments forever. We sacrificed video so we could make the budget work for a good photographer. Now ya that outside vendor fee really sucks. Some people have brought a photographer from home and paid for their stay. There are a lot of photographers that if you pay for their stay will give you a great deal on an overall package.

       

      4. Yes you have to pay the outside fee for your own mariachi which are not much cheaper anyways. They were $500 so with the fee it makes no sense. The mariachi was totally worth it!!! our guests are still talking about that.

       

      When is your big day? sorry if it's somewhere and I missed it.

      For the bride who have already gotten married and used Marvin, I have a question.  First did the deliver the flowers to the hotel outside and you just had someone pick them up for you?  Did he charge a delivery fee?  Also, I know to avoid the vendor fee you are supposed to put them on the tables yourself....but when did you have someone do this?  How far in advance are the tables set up?  Any recommendations would be greatly apprecaited! 

       

      diahr - that is great news!  I am sorry to hear about your family dilema you are in.  I didn't have anything that extreme, but I do have a future sister in law, that we gave $1,000 to so that she could come, just bitch and bitch and bitch about EVERYTHING and how expensive everything is.  When it is all said and done we will have paid more for her to come than she did.  It's frustrating...but at the end of the day, it's your day, and all that matter and you and him.

                Hello ladies!

                 

                The sole groom on here, back from our wedding at the RPDC.  Lisa and I were married on November 30th on the beach in front of the gazebo.  We ended up going with the Mayan Ceremony, which turned out to be UNREAL!  We only invited 9 to our wedding, but about 100 or gathered around the beach to watch.  It was incredible!

                 

                We weren't really fussy about many of the details, so our planning process just went with the flow.  I think that helped keep the stress down.  In the end though, everything our expectations, and then some.  Zulma was our wedding coordinator, and our reception was at El Mediterraneo.  The staff at El Mediterraneo are incredible, and I would highly recommend this for anyones semi private reception.  Its also the coolest temperature wise, which was refreshing after a day in dress pants.  We used Sascha Gluck as our photographer, and for those who are considering him - please BOOK HIM.  He is polite, easy going, and though we haven't seen the final product yet, the shots he gave us a sneak peak at were incredible.  As I get more photos, I will try to post them along with a review.

                 

                In the meantime, if you ladies have any questions, I will do my best to answer them!

                 

                MIKE.

                    I want to get married again! I loved it sooo much. I started unpacking today and i got teary-eyed because I got flashes of memories. You ladies are going to have the best time. My brother has already posted on my FB page that it was the best time of HIS life and he has never seen me or my parents so happy. I made sure to take Wayne aside to take it all in during the reception.

                     

                    The funny thing is that we barely had time to enjoy the resort with all the meetings,events, and preparations (we never even got in the pool and only made it into the ocean once lol), but despite all that, The Royal has been my fave resort ever! We will definitely go back to enjoy it some more.

                      Hey ladies, I did engagement pics on Sunday and already got them back!  The photographer was great and in my opinion very reasonably prices.  If any of you Chicago area brides are needing a

                      photog I can give you his info, I know there a couple of you on here.

                       

                      I know there is a thread on here for engagment pics, but I always like to share with you girls.

                       

                      Here are a few of my favorites:
