    Hi PlayaWedding! 

    It was fun to run into you (and party with you) at the hotel! :) You looked so beautiful and happy in your wedding dress. I am happy to hear that everything went wonderful for you. I have to sit down and write my review as well!

    Hello Ladies, I was recently married at the RPDC- May 18th, 2011.

    Here is my review on the resort,

     

    Check in: The staff at this resort is amazing, as soon as you step into the lobby there is someone there to greet you, they immediately escort you to the Romance Concierge where you check in, get you room and go over the different restaurants etc. I am going to warn you, do not go expecting you will be upgraded because I did and we were not upgraded so I was a little disappointed with this. Our room was beautiful and big- we had the Royal Master One Bedroom Suite- Beautiful!

    We travelled with a lot of people who travelled the world and some of them were not too pleased with the food, They did go into Playa to have dinner a few nights- Personally The Asiana restaurant was everyones favourite place to eat so make sure your guests check this out. We did eat at chefs table because of our room category and this too was great. Some of the guests did get sick from Maria Marie. So overall I would give the food a B-.

    Drinks: Great selection, they can make you just about anything. They do not garnish the drinks like they would if you were at Margaritaville but I didn't hear anyone complain about this. I would give the drinks an  A!

     

    Wedding: We had Deny's- One word: Amazing~ she is so cute! She takes care of everything, we went in with 3 suitcases full of decor and props and she said to leave it all with her!, everything for our setup was 100%!

    We did pelicanos beach for our ceremony, cocktail and reception- if you are getting married on the beach do not do Central- it is not private at all and you have an audience- with pelicanos the only people you will get are off to the side on the pier- but you don't t even notice them and you don't care.

    We purchased the lounge furniture which really makes for a nice set up, we used DJ Mannia and the light up dance floor- we also purchased an extra hour for the reception, If your budget allows you to do all of these, then you really should. People are still talking about our MC from DJ Mannia, he was the highlight of our wedding, really! I would hands down give our wedding A+!!!

     

    With our wedding package we had included dinner on the beach the night after the wedding, again if you have this, please use it, it is so romantic and you will need a break from the group for one night so it's a great excuse to just be alone with your new husband. I loved this dinner and the set up, our server was amazing! A+

     

    The only piece of advice I have is to trust the staff at the royal and your WC, they know what they are doing, as they do 3-4 a day on average. They are so professional and really go the extra mile to make your day perfect.

    If you have the option to have your ceremony video taped then do this, we are kicking ourselves for not capturing a video of our day :(

    My other piece of advice, don't stress!!! I was so nervous for my wedding, after it was over, I was like "well that was easy", you have no idea what your will be like the day of your wedding so try to just sit back and relax! In fact, I wish we could do it again :) 

     

    Have fun, your guests will love this resort, it is top notch and the service cannot be beat!!! 

    Our guests had a blast. There were friendships made between guests that did not know each other prior to this trip and they will continue to keep in touch!

    Good Luck to all future brides- You won't be disappointed!!

        Dimax!!!!!

        We had so much fun that day partying in the pool! The last thing I remember was my sister carrying you around in the pool! Haha. We are a crazy bunch for sure. I'm so happy about the way things turned out, our guests are still talking about the wedding and the trip. Hope you had a blast!

                Hi Heidi - We are at the Royal now and had the same question. They are able to do a projector in a ballroom for $250. It was not in our budget, so we decided to bring an iPad with a slideshow we had made. We brought it to all of our events - our welcome cocktail hour (we just took over the Lobby Bar at the Gran Porto), our wedding reception, and our goodbye breakfast (again, we just took over the Albatross restaurant at Gran Porto). Hope this helps!

                Has anyone arranged a rehearsal dinner at either a Gran Porto or Royal restaurant and at the dinner used projector to show a slideshow?

                I've set up the dinner, but my WC said they cannot accomodate a projector for a slideshow at a restaurant.  I understand it's not that private, but I still wanted to do it there instead of at the wedding reception if possible.

                 

                :) Thanks!

                  Hi everyone! This is my last day at the Royal - and we've had an amazing time. Our wedding was perfect, the reception was so fun, and we've had so much fun seeing all of our family and friends around for so many days!

                   

                  We will write our review soon... but really quickly - DJ Doremixx was *INCREDIBLE*, Zulma was thorough and very on top of everything, the Central Gardens was a great location for a reception (it felt private, and no sandy dance floor!), the hotel staff will cater to your every request, SpAzul did an *AMAZING*AMAZING* job with my hair & makeup, also  - do yourself a favor and schedule yourself a massage or two (they are so relaxing, very professional, and the best massages I've ever had), the boys had fun on the Fishing with Ivan excursion, and we had an awesome time on the Mayan Xtreme tour with Aventuras Mayas.  Oh, and I have the best photographer ever. Really. We did a trash the dress session in some cenotes (underground rivers/caves) the day after our wedding, and the pictures are fantastic. Hiram Trillo (hiramtrillo.com) is his name - we flew him down from my (old) hometown of Fort Worth, Texas  - he comes to Playa all the time and is very familiar with the area. Can't wait to share the photos!

                   

                  I recommend to all of you ladies - Relax. Keep it simple. And don't drown in the details. Everything will work out great!

                   

                  I will post a Planning Thread (if I can), and a Review soon! I plan to write about it on the plane.

                   

                  Now, off to my Romantic Moonlit Dinner!
