      Hi! Our wedding is 4/17/10 at the Royal PDC. Ceremony and cocktails in the gazebo, party on the beach. We used Busy Bee Press for STD postcards and were really happy with them.

      We're looking at photographers - does anyone have opinions on Playaweddings.com? Del Sol looks great but a bit expensive and Elizabeth Medina is booked already.

        Hi Ladies,

        Check out Samuel Luna for photography Flash Portfolio | Top Mexico Photographers | Mexico Destination Wedding Photographer Samuel Luna
        We are using him and found his rates were great however we booked when he was running a promotion. The least expensive photographers that I found were Lincoln and Lori from moments that matter photography MEXICO Destination Wedding Photography, Wedding Photojournalism throughout the Mayan Riviera

          Congrats everyone on your engagement. We are also looking at The Royal in PDC in June2010. I also have several questions about the photographer and when pictures will be taken (before or after the ceremony??) If anyone has any extra info to share I would love to hear.
          Thanks,
          Louise

            Hi Louise congrats!

            The taking of the pictures really depends on a lot of factors. We are doing ours before for a few different reasons. First we are getting married at 4pm. In order to have light and sun we wanted to get the pictures before hand. We are getting married in November where it gets dark by 5pm.Two we don't want to miss the cocktail hour lol. It is a great time to mingle and relax before having dinner. And finally we love the idea of the first look. This is a private moment that the photographer sets up for you and your groom. I think for us we felt it would really help with nerves lol and it would capture a moment when it is just us alone. Again this really varies from every person on how they would like to do it.

              Thanks jesmcan. We are looking at a 4pm wedding in June so I think we will have a few hours until the sun sets. I guess I will make the photography decision as the time approaches.

                Have any of you ladies found that the wedding planners at the Royal take forever to get back to you or is that just me?

                    So today I finally get a response from the WP at RPC to discover that I need to pay $400 to rent the site as I will be having an "a la carte" wedding. I would really have appreciated if they told me this the first time I mentioned "a la carte" to them. Then i email them with questions and no reply! Im sooo frustrated i have so many questions and nobody to answer them! Sorry ladies just had to vent!

                      We have been having major problems getting a response on emails as well. After multiple attempts I finally spoke with someone and booked for June 25th, 2010. The ironic part of the story is that after I told the girl how many emails I had sent her (none of which she had responded too) she told me that she sits in front of the computer all day. She mentioned that she would respond promptly to the deposit info I was sending as we spoke. Funny stuff.
