    Hi! Our wedding is at the Royal April 17 and all of this advice is really helpful! I just asked on another thread but does anyone have experience with playaweddings.com photography? Del Sol seems a bit expensive and Elizabeth Medina is booked already. Other photographer suggestions?

      Hi loves,
      Bows $3 each
      I have the pricing sheet for the cakes, somewhere with costs and flavors and some photos, we are having a 3 tier cake made and I believe it was like $250usd for a 35 person cake, we dont know our final though.
      The tres leche cake, is amazing! we've stayed there 2x now and when you check in they ask what reason you are here for, like honeymoon, anniv', etc, so both time's we've had a mini tres leche cake brought to our room.
      Table deminisions I didnt even think to ask, but they fit 8-10 people, but the lady we did our site inspection with said they recommend 7-8 at a table.
      The light up dance floor is not included in the package, because it doesnt even come through them, its just with dj ivans package.
      I just got back from our site inspection, so if you have any other questions.
      oh and for food tasting, the salads I dont remember all the names off hand, but I believe we did the carribean shrimp salad, really good, the sauce was very tangy, we tried the avacoda stuffed with crap pulp, I loved him my fiance wasnt too thrilled and then the last salad was off the vegetarian menu and i believe it was just a regular house like salad with zucchini.
      entrees, we tried the salmon(dont remember exact one of hand) it was delicious! the pasta with dried sauce, again delicious and the beef tournade fillet, which again was good. were going with all 3 and I just have to keep track of the menus per table basically. For dessert we had the baked pear, it was good but not my cup of tea, the cheesecake, was good, but whats the point if youre having wedding cakes, and the other one again I dont remember but its what we picked, it was 2 cone like shaped things stuffed with cholocate mousse, and it was yummy! the chocolate even had little silver stars.

      He asked, I said YES!!! 1 <3 21 <3 04 - 5 <3 13 <3 08

          However the Royal has changed their rules You can no longer book he DJ your self. You have to go through them. They now charge an absurd rate. They realized they were losing money by letting brides book Ivan themselves. I am not exactly sure what the new rate is with the resort.
          Grrrrr!!!! I got quoted I think $1,200. I wonder if this rule is just for this specific DJ or all in general?

          Thanks for the info.

            It applies for all the DJ's, you have to book it through them. I think they use DJ Mannia as well. I'm not sure about any others.

            How long was the $1,200 for?

            We booked through DJ Ivan and got him for 4 hours with the light up dance floor for $1,200.

              The $1,200 is for 3hrs and does not include the dance floor. Only lights and sound.

                Wow that is just really greedy!! I cannot believe they are actually putting this policy into effect.

                  the exact height of the round tables used for receptions 74 centimeters
                  And the measurement for how far across they are. 1.80 meters
                  how tall the back of the chair is, 45 centimeters
                  how tall the seat is off the ground and 47 centimeters
                  How wide the back is. 92 centimeters


                  Basically they are 6' round tables that seat 10 people. I have been there, and at one time i was a banquet waitress and this is industry standard.
