i had my ceremony & cocktail hour at the beach in front of the gazebo and the reception in front of pelicanos. it was perfect. it is not a far walk at all from one to the other. the gazebo beach area is between sets of the beach cabanas. the pelicanos beach location for the reception is perhaps a bit more open because the pier is next to it. plus you can run to the ladies room at pelicanos, which i did at least 2 times during my reception - kinda funny running thru the restaurant with my big wedding dress on!
for me, the plan & contract was to have the whole thing at pelicanos beach but when i arrived zulma told me both locations were available - it's not something i knew until i arrived. so it worked out well because we didn't have the cocktail hour tables set up next to our reception.
ladies, i promise that these details seem annoying & aggrivating and it's sometimes hard to communicate with your WC, but they truly want you to be happy & have the best day ever.
hope this helps.

When we initially contacted The Royal that was one of our main concerns knowing that they did multiple weddings a day and they ensured me a sitiuation like the one you mentioned wouldn't happen.
Now maybe the ceremony that is going one is only the couple and no guests etc so it won't interfere with your reception. We say a couple "couples" getting married by themselves or renewing vows when we were there.
I e-mailed my wedding coordinator about this, and I'm hoping I get a response soon... now for those brides who have already gotten married here, if you decided to make changes last minute, like if I wanted to move my reception location to a different area of the beach, and I didn't decide this until I got down there, like 2 days before the wedding, are they accommodating to changes?? Or are they strict about stuff? I guess I just feel like I'm not going to really get an idea of what things will look like, etc. until I am down there, and I'm not getting very many answers from my WC.... ??
