    DoReMix djs thru the resort were great- and they bright all the props you were asking about, plus fireworks, free of charge.

     

    I brought the lanterns!

        That's weird- they didn't charge me and I got a note from the DJ saying that they were bringing them for free!

          Maybe because we have different packages perhaps? They're listed as an extra option for us. I'm not remembering off the too of my head...did you pay for an extra hour? Or you added it at the time of the actual wedding since everyone was having fun? Did the DJ mind staying an extra hour if this is what you did? (Sorry...I've been reading reviews today so I'm muddling up the different ones in my head! Lol)

              And it was worth it? What find did your reception end? We've pushed back our ceremony to 4:30

                Is worth paying the extra hour fee per guest for the hour? I'm just struggling with the concept of paying an extra hour for over 50 guests! That's a ton of money! (Originally we were thinking we'd have a maximum of 20-30 people but everyone so far is coming...eeek...the prices just keep hiking)!!

                  Hi there!

                  I love The Royal, and would love to have my wedding there. The only stick is that there are some family members who have children. While I understand they are allowed in for the wedding itself, did any of you feel horrible for not having these family & friends stay at the same resort as you? It just seems a bit mean to have the wedding and havbe ppl fly all the way down, and then make them stay elsewhere... I am just struggling with this decision and want to know how your family/friends with children reacted..??  My fiance thinks its not a very nice thing to do..!

                   

                  Thanks so much!!

                    Yes and compared to the resort prices of $65 per table for "crap" I will deal with it!

                      Bella- I hadnt planned on ANY children thus why I picked Royal PDC. But now I have 3 coming. The Gran Porto is right next door and in the same family of resorts and they allow children. It's easy to walk between the hotels and you will still incur some charges but not as bad. Looking back, if I had known some people would still insist on bringing the kids I would have chosen a family resort. How many do you think will be coming? If you can plan for it I would. What is going to happen now is we'll have to go off resort more often to include our guests with kids. If there arent too many coming then consider Gran Porto next door.
