I didnt have to pay any service charge for Leah because she was a guest of the resort. I did pay for her to eat dinner, which is normal at any wedding. The reception at the beach club was really windy which was good to cool down my guests but bad for all the tea light candles I brought which wouldnt stay lit. I also made a bunch of luminary bags which the decorations were blowing off of because it was so windy. I would definitely bring covered candle holders if you want candles. If you have other questions you can email me @ dawnandjeremy09@gmail.com
        Dawn, your pictures are beautiful, thanks for sharing them. My engagment ring is almost identical to yours!

        Thanks everyone. She sent me some but it wasn't clear how the layout was. We will have some dance performances so we have to make sure the floor is big enough and will be easily viewable for our guests.

        I found another pic below, is this still the beach club?

              Wowza... There is pages and pages and pages and pages to this thread! I am currently trying to organize my wedding at the Xcaret, but am having problems settling on a price. I was originally sent a letter after I contacted marialma saying that the wedding package was free with 10 rooms booked (right now we have 13) and then we were told that that didn't apply to us because we used a TA.. and on and on. Getting quite frustrated at this point. I'm glad there are some girls here who have had a good experience!

              Anyone know anything about getting limos or shuttles? We need to transport people from the resort to the town for the ceremony. We got 68 people coming so far and I am afraid probably 10-15 more people coming!

                68 people, that's awesome! so far just my family's booked, everyone else promises they're coming but i won't believe it until they're booked. how close to the wedding did most of your guests book?

                sorry, don't know anything about transportation. maybe try marialma?

                We originally planned to stay at the Royal Playa Del Carmen and Gran Porto Real and sent out the info in June. But we didn't get much interest. I think much of it was due to the price which was $2000 and $1500 CDN respectively.

                My fiancee and I decided to see what else was out there. We checked out the different options and XCaret looked to be the best deal. We stayed there previously so we got some quotes. Long story short we were able to get the week for our guests for $1000CDN all inclusive (flights, transfer, hotel) so we jumped on it and so did everyone else. We sent out the info mid August and as of today we have 71 booked.

                So we did talk to Marialma about transpo and she gave us some numbers to contact. Now just trying to figure out the menu for the dinner. Sucks that we only get to give our guests 2 choices for the main course. Was hoping to give the options of beef, chicken or vegetarian, but Marialma says we only get to choose from 2. Don't see why we can't have more options if we give the chef enough notice.

                We also have to rent out the A/V equipment which sucks because the Royal was not charging us for that.

                But overall we are happy that things are finally moving along.
