    The lounge furniture really does look awesome - for both of your weddings. Can I ask...for the size of your party, how much did the furniture run you Heidi? There will be about 13 of us for our wedding, and I'm just wondering...if I might be able to afford something like this?

    Also, Heidi, for your table linens that you brought with you, what size did you make them? Were the chair covers included by the resort? Did they have tiebacks you could have used?

    I don't know what I would do without you. You've both certainly helped me, and I know dozens more. Thank you, to both of you.

              Hi Shay,
              The lounge furniture was $1500 US (prepaid by certified cheque) + $250 US for transportation (the company is out of Cancun), which I paid the night of the wedding (I had envelopes ready ahead of time with tips for vendors and any owing amounts, which my friend held onto in her purse).
              I think it's more of a standard set up than based on number of guests, but I could be wrong. This price included all the lounge furniture, dark tables, the decorations they had on the dark tables, and the big pots with bamboo near to the water. It also included pillows with your color choice. I was quoted a bit higher, but talked him down a bit to that price. I know it's a bit steep, but it really made the look for me and was actually a much better price than I was quoted by other companies.
              All the white linens are included with the Royal. They also have white tiebacks for around the chairs (made from the same white material as the chair covers) if you don't bring your own sashes. I bought my sashes and colored runners/overlays from

                  Your review and pictures took me back to March when we got married and further confirmed that we both made such a great decision with The Royal! Isn't Zulma just the sweetest? All the staff there is so wonderful and very accommodating. They really just make you feel so special there. I just read my husband that part where you mentioned the Mango Tangos. And we started laughing. That was the popular drink at our wedding, too and I think some of our guests had them for breakfast daily!

                  The lounge furniture looked great and your pictures are amazing. Go del Sol photography!!

                  Wasn't the location so perfect? You can be lounging at a 5 star resort then just a block away is downtown Playa del Carmen. Our guests loved it.

                  Anyway, congratulations and I thoroughly enjoyed reading your review. Hopefully, we can help out more future "Royal" brides!!

                  I'm so glad you also knew about the mango tangos! Lol...they were so delicious... we're going to try and recreate them at home next weekend with friends!
                  Wouldn't you love to go back to the Royal? We're so missing it - what a wonderful spot... just perfect! We can't wait to get back there!
                  Yes, Zulma is so sweet... so is Michaela! It was like having two great friends there taking care of all your weddings worries and requests. I asked Zulma and Michaela if they remembered you, and they both said how sweet you were and how much they enjoyed working with you. Zulma said to tell you that the she couldn't stop eating the delicious treats you gave her... she said she ate them all day at work, and that they were so good she couldn't stop! lol...
                  Thanks for all your nice comments on my wedding! I wish we could do it all over again!

                    Wow, Wow, Wow!!! Thanks so much for the very indepth review. It really helps us all who are going to the Royal (& even for anyone who hasn't decided on a location). I got so excited reading your review and looking at your beautiful pics! It sounds like everything will be good for us in December (weather permiting of course!). And thanks for the tip about the orchids!! Congrats to you both!!
