      Thanks! Yours will be fabulous too, don't worry too much, if that is possible.
      #1 - You said that the guests had rights to the Royal because they upgraded their room at The Gran Porto - what exactly does that mean? Our guests have a Jr. Suite Ocean view - is this considered an upgrade?
      It was more than the normal upgrade to the next level. It was a Gran Jr. Suite Beachfront Walkout.
      I'm nervous because I'm staying at The Gran with my daughter but my wedding is at The Royal, so I'm scared that I may have issues getting over there and I'm the bride!!
      Talk to your wedding coordinator beforehand to get it figured out.

      #2 - You said you paid to extend the reception 1 hour, do you mind telling me what that costs? We're interested in doing that as well.
      $10/person/hour. Not sure if that is still the price.

      Thanks for all your help! I can't wait to come back and help future Royal brides too :)

        Allison,

        I'm confused. Are you saying that the guests at Gran or non resort guests have to pay for the day pass in order to attend the wedding/reception?

        The WC told me that it is free for everyone. I hope that's still the case.

          For the wedding- guest can arrive about 15 minutes prior-whether from a different resort or the Gran Porto. I highly encourage you to have a list of non resort guests and provide it to the WC.

          If the guests would like to come over earlier or on a different day there is a cost.

          From Angie" If someone is coming over for the wedding real guest from another Real resort or a guest another resort entirely they do not need a pass to come to the wedding. To come over to The Royal for any other reason, from any place, for the day or evening the rates will be as I have given you."

            Thanks Jennifer for the info. I have been glazing over this info because originally I had all my guests at the Royal but now I have a family staying at the Gran. Could you quote those prices again (the day pass if they wanted to come over another day). Thank you so much!
            yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

                Oh, one more. . .LadyDi, Michelle at the resort told me to book hair/makeup now, and for your bridesmaids/moms too. They are really, really busy in May (sorry, I just saw your post from earlier)
                yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

                  TA Jennifer is correct in that all non-royal guests can come over 15 minutes beforehand (you do not have to pay for extra guest passes)& they can stay the whole time of you wedding, BUT if there is any sort of break between things (ie between ceremony and cocktail hour), that is where there was some confusion from both our guests and rules of the resort. Your non-royal guests cannot consume anything except for beverages and food from your wedding. This means they cannot go to a bar at the Royal, but they can consumer everything that you are paying for via your wedding package. Does that make sense?

                      Yes, that makes sense! Gosh, how are we supposed to keep track of the guests and tell them not to go to any bars when we're too busy taking pictures and etc?

                      I guess we just need to have a point person to tell everyone! Hehe.
