    The Royal allowed you to have kids at the wedding? Were they allowed for both the ceremony and reception or only the ceremony? I'm thinking about having my wedding at the Royal, but I think there may be a few kids that would come if they are allowed.

          Yes, kids were allowed at the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. I had about 8 kids, all under 6 years old. None of the guests were given any trouble except for one guest who arrived late from the Gran Porto with his 2 sons. The security guards were not letting him enter the property, even when he told the guy he was attending the wedding. After much convincing, the security guard escorted him through the front entrance and into the ballroom, even though all the other guests (including children) were sitting by the lobby bar! In short, he was finally able to join the rest of the party w/ his kids.

                The wedding ceremony was on the beach...so everyone knew to go straight to the beach. The beach location actually changed when we got there. FI and I wanted to change locations due to the beach renovations and ugly pipes that were in front of Gran Porto, which would have been visible had we kept the original ceremony location. The set-up is very visible once guests arrive on the beach. The one guest who showed up late went through the front entrance. He missed the ceremony. I don't believe he stopped at the front desk, which is probably why he got stopped by the security guards. Also, I provided a resort map indicating the ceremony location in a Welcome booklet I made (included with OOT bags).

                    This dark cloud loomed ahead pre-ceremony. It slowly crept its way over us and poured immediately after the I Do's. This is a picture a friend captured after all the guests cleared the seats and sought shelter under the gazebo.

                      I thought the guests had to go to the front desk to get a bracelet to enter the property...and also thought they would have a list of guests to check off to make sure there would be 35, not 38 people. You know?
