Our wedding date is fast approaching, 25th November 2009 at 4pm at RPTB, we havent shipped any items to the resort in advance, but we have ordered bouqettes, a cake and some smaller items from an external wedding company who have been great, we have the Royal package for 50ppl, we only have 24 guests but it was compulsory to upgrade and we had an extra charge for it, I guess the decision between Gazebo or Beach depends on your group size, I have been advised that the Gazebo would be for a Smaller Party maybe 10-20 guests, if there are more then its apparently difficult for people to see and hear whats going on. We are planning on the beach location, we are able to choose a spot thats private and secluded from areas on the beach.
We have the Royal Package and its being held in teh Steak House area betwenn 630 and 830 following that we have a cocktail hour on the beach.
I must advise that we have found the WC at RPTB less than helpful, we understand that they deal with 100's of weddings a year, but most of our small requests we made that were not part of teh package, they couldnt provide or they could but at amazingly high prices 4-500 dollars for a cake and 150-250 for a tropical bouqette as the ones included in the Royal package did not have the correct colours or style. this is just 1 example!
We leave in about 38 days for the wedding, hoping that everything falls into place nicely when we get there. I can provide more infor for you on our return of how everything went.

i choose the gazebo location, but i think i am going to change that and go w/ the secluded beach reception, since we will have a lot of guests
i am also interested in having a hr. cocktail reception on the beach as well, what was the xtra cost for that and what was included.....i was thinking of hiring the steel drum band......
for my centerpieces, corsages, and bouquets i am going to ship them down, i spoke to the coordinator and she said we could do so......they charge entirely to much for those services........wasnt' your cake included in your package, the Caprice has a cake included
cant wait to hear what a wonderful time you guys are gonna have, i know your pics are going to be lovely...

As for shipping, i don't know. We opted to bring things onto the plane with us and our guests by splitting them up between us.
