    No, no one had to get a bracelet to enter the property on the wedding day. The front desk has no idea how many guests you have. The guest count is finalized with your WC. Any number exceeding 35 (for the luxury wedding package) is an extra charge. We had to give Zulma the exact count and she calculated the extra charge the day before the wedding.

      Really? I had this assumption that they would go to the front desk and get access. Are you saying they have no idea if they're guests of The Royal/Gran?

        The security guards in the lobby area are like hawks. They do keep an eye out for Royal and Gran bracelets and approach you if you are not supposed to be there. However, I'm not sure how they handled guests who entered for the wedding. No one said anything about having trouble, though. And no one had to get bracelets for the wedding for sure.

                  This has been so helpful for me so thank you for all this information! We are getting married at the Royal PDC in February this year. Most of my family is staying at the resort, but there are a few who are staying off property and my sister and her husband are staying at the Gran Porto. Did you have to pay daily access fees for your non-Royal wedding guests to enter the property for your wedding? 

                   

                  Also, any other tips or suggestions as we are in the final month of planning for our big day!

                    I am getting married at RPDC in April and am so excited, but so lost as to all the planning options I have. This forum is helping a ton, but have a question for other brides. Basically, my co-worker is also planning a destination wedding in November. I booked my resort last June and she just booked hers in February. Right away, she was given a document outlining everything she would need to know about options, setup, special requests, and a timeline of when she needs to plan/reserve various aspects of her wedding. I have never received anything like that from my wedding coordinator. It makes me nervous! The website has some downloadable .pdfs, but nothing really outlining how we can get started planning. Until I got on this forum, I just assumed we would discuss all my flower, decor, centerpiece, and menu options when we arrived. I did e-mail my coordinator, Denisse, to ask her if they have any documentation to fill out like my co-worker received and asked what I need to book in advance. My question for other brides is, how helpful/forthcoming was the resort when you were planning your wedding? Here are the questions I sent to the coordinator. You can see how clueless I still am! 

                     

                    I thought it might be easier for me to send you all my questions/requests together rather than sending out individual e-mails. I hope I don’t overwhelm you but want to make sure I don’t forget anything! The website doesn’t seem to have much information and I haven’t received any additional information. If I am missing something, feel free to let me know.

                     

                    Ceremony

                    What will the ceremony chairs look like; white folding chairs or covered chairs? Do they come with a bow as shown on the website or do bows cost extra per chair? Are there other selections or upgrades? If I can choose a colored bow, I would like one of the colors in the picture below; coral (preferred), clover or royal blue.  If I bring programs, can these be placed on the guests’ chairs during setup or do I need to put them there myself? Do I select my own ceremony music and, if yes, will someone be available to play it for me from my iPod? Can I select my ceremony script for a legal ceremony or do I have to go with a defined script? How long does the ceremony typically last?

                     

                    Private Reception

                    What will the tables and chairs look like for the reception? Will they include linens? Centerpieces? How many people sit at one table? Are there any color selections or upgrades available? When do I select my menu items? Will the reception begin at a certain time or immediately following the ceremony? I know we already reserved the dance floor and an iPod sound system for music (thank you!). Will the champagne toast and cake be part of the reception?

                     

                    Ceremony Flowers

                    The bridesmaids are wearing three different colors; coral, clover, and royal blue. I would like to have four bouquets; one for the bride and three for the bridesmaids. I would like the bouquets to be made similar to the one in the picture below. Specifically, I would like it to include coral Roses, fuchsia and yellow Daises, green Cymbidium Orchids, and blue Hydrangeas. I also don’t mind pink or yellow freesias, or pink, fuchsia, or yellow roses if needed to make the bouquet full.

                    I would like four boutonnieres; two with a coral rose (similar to A12), one with a green cymbidium orchid, and one with a blue hydrangea.

                    I would like a ceremony centerpiece made out of these same flowers; something similar to CP24 but, of course, with the flowers listed above.

                    I would like a bag of coral rose petals spread across the walkway for the ceremony. Can someone spread them out during setup or will I need to do this myself?

                     

                     

                     

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    Cake

                    I am also wondering about the cake. I am paying for a cake and champagne toast for each guest. What sort of cake is included with this? Am I able to pick out the decoration for the cake? If yes, I think a simple white frosting with flowers like the one above will be perfect.

                     

                    Photography and Videography

                    I have a family member who is taking picture for me, so I will not need any of these services.

                     

                    Hair and Makeup

                    We have already scheduled the appointments that are needed. Thank you!

                     

                    Bills

                    I would greatly appreciate it if I could receive and estimated bill based on this information.
