Royal Decameron, Panama

Recommended Posts

Hi there! I am also an RD bride and I'm trying to iron out all the details with Julia. We opted for Club Med, but honestly we weren't even given an option for Sushi Samba. Now I'm scared! I would love to see pictures, but can't seem to track anything down.

 

I did opt for the chair covers as well. Is anyone doing a DJ or band.


Details! Details! Details!

Hi

 

i thought of joining this to really gather some great information from everyone on here.  My fiance and i are planning on getting married at the royal decameron in panama in early 2012.  nothing is booked yet but what better way to see pictures, know all the ins and outs of what not to do or what is worth doing.  Any help, suggestions is greatly appreciated.  i am such a planning myself so for me to have not alot of control or knowledge about something kinda scares me.  LOL  Any advice or suggestions for that day!

Hi I am getting married there Jan 21 and have not really done much planning! How much did they charge you for the chair covers?

I think we will be bringing an ipod stereo with us for music instead of a dj

Hi All,

 

we are getting married Jan 26th, 2011 at the Royal Decameron.

I've booked Club Med restaurant for private dinner and dance.  I've opted out of a DJ (which I know is more work for me) and just booked the stereo system that allows for iPod's or CDs.

I've decided not to purchase any decoations (above what they give in the package I purchased) and will be bringing my own very simple decoations.

got my hair and massage booked, photographer.

Think I'm pretty much covered that way.

If anyone has questions I dont' know how much I can answer but do have contacts for the photographer and the spa.

 

Happy Planning!

Jen

Hi Jen what did they charge you for the exclusivity of the restaurant?

Did you book the terrace marias for after dinner or you will be having the dance in the cafe med restaurant? If you are doing terrace did they charge you extra for that?

$7 per person for exclusive (had to pay separate for the sound system & bartenders)
I just kep the Cafe Med for dinner and dance.  I hear it's near the beach so will be a nice view and cool to take walks or such on the beach. 

Hope that helps (oh they charged me $80 for bartenders $40 x 2) and $200 for sound system.

Cheers,

Hi all brides-to-be!

 

I too am at the Decameron. Like Jen, we just booked the soundsystem. We've also paid the $7/person charge to have Club Med all night. We did opt to pay the $250 delivery charge for chairs and chair covers, otherwise we're bringing down basic decorations.

 

The WP did send me pictures of a couple of different weddings at Club Med. It looks great! If I find them, I will post.

 

Cheers

I've booked Cafe Med for my welcome/rehearsal dinner too!  It's awesome there, I especially love the band *but watch out for mosquitos!!!.  Did you girls also have to choose just a few items from a menu or are they letting you order from the whole menu?  When I went there in Sept, my mom and I had 3 plates with every dinner so we could try all the yummy dishes!  I found it surprising that they asked me to pick from the menu?  

 

Jen - who is doing your hair/makeup? Are you doing a trial first too?  I can't believe you're BIG day is just around the corner!!  I wish you all the best and hope you have a beautiful wedding in Panama!  Take lots of pics and will be looking forward to your review!!

Hi JR14,

 

When I booked the wedding day dinner for Club Med they just gave me the menu.  I wans't given the option to pick but that's fine with me.

I wasn't planning on doing a trial, I know they reccomend it.  If I do, I will do one here and take a picture. I've booked my hair to be done at the spa, and makeup as of right now am doing myself.

3 weeks today, time flies!!! I can't wait. Getting through the next 3 weeks is going to be difficult. 

Cheers!
Jen

You were able to just book the sound system?? Jealous! I wasn't even given that option. Julia just said that the disco movil cost  is $450  and include: Lights, sound, Dj, speakers, music.

What is included with the $200 package? Cos I would love to switch to that and just have someone from our group be in charge of the ipod all night.

 

Less than 2 weeks!

 

Jenn
