    Congrats  Cdn Redhead and Panama Bride!

     

    I'm getting married there April 28th 2011 and have tons of Questions!!

     

    I've paid for exclusivity of Cafe Med, do the tables come dressed (Table cloths and flowers as in the pictures posted by Panamania) or do you have to pay extra?

     

    You mentioned a 5 course served meal, extra or included?  Is it the same menu selection as the regular a la carte menu?  (I've found a copy online)

     

    Did you pay for the resort photog?  How much is his package?  Is it worthwhile?
    Did you get a free room upgrade?

    What else did they do that was special for the newlyweds?

     

    Answers appreciated!

      LadyBugJ...I am getting married on April 3, just a few weeks before you!

       

      I have many of the same questions as you, but also have a few tips. I posted pictures earlier in the forum with pics Julia sent me. The round tables are extra, so from what I can gauge you only have the rectangle tables. We're making table runners for them because it seems like we just get the white table clothes etc. I am bringing down a few other things. I did have Julia book chair covers and ties. She sent me a menu and I can't find it!

       

      I also hired a seperate photographer.

       

      Let me know if you have other questions and I can keep in touch when I get back. We can muddle through this together! Also, my travel agent has a spanish girl on staff so she's been phoning down for me.

        Hi, how did your wedding go?  Was it everything you dreamed it would be?  We are looking to get married there but have had a lot of difficulty getting any info on wedding packages etc or even being able to make contact with anyone who could give us information (even with our TA assisting).  Would you reccomend the weddings at Royal De Cameron?  If so do you have any contact info for the wc there? 

         

        Thanks in advance!!!

          Hi Canadagirl86
          (and all other Royal Decameron Brides).

           

          I got back one month ago today from the RDPanama for our wedding and I have to say it was more than I even imagined! I did try to go there with an open mind as I've been warned by past DW brides that things are different when you go away, but I have a hard time putting into words how wonderful our trip and experience was.

          Julia was our wedding coordinator and she was amazing!!! I was a little worried as she was sometimes hard to get a hold (before hand via email) but she always came through and was great when we were there.

          The dinner was spectacular (Cafe Med) decorations were beautiful as well as the fresh flowers.  They do enough weddings you can tell to get all the details right.

          I highly reccomend paying the extra to have the dinner and dance/reception at the Cafe Med (if that's an option) it's right by the beach and such a wonderful background. 

           

          LadyBugJ- sorry for such a delay,

          to try to answer your questions, I dont' know if the food was the same as the a la carte as we never made it, but we had soup, a seafood dish (or salad for those that didn't like it) main course was beef, chicken or fish, all of which i heard was amazing and then a wonderful dessert. You also got breads to much on.

          They only did table clothes, I brought my own miminal decorations. Let them know how you want tables set up they will do it no problem.

           

          my photographer package was $320 he stayed for 8 hrs and gave us 42 pics. Gave us the option of purchasing a disc for $400 so we took that. Sebastian was his name and he was great.

          We did get a room upgrade although we didn't expect it or ask for it.  Beachfront Block 31 was amazing.

          They decorated our room for us the wedding night with flower pedals and such. Got wine and fruit basket upon arrival in our room also (and balloons). :)

           

          if anyone has other questions about the resort or tip etc.. feel free to email me at service@devonleighhomes.com just put the royal decameron in the subject heading!

          Cheers,

              I know, I saw the Bristol Buenaventura and that is an absolutely gorgeous hotel...Are you and your FI going to stay that night at the hotel and then meet up with your guest and stay the remaining time at the Royal Decameron? How much were you able to get the packages for at the RD? Thank you so much for your help...I unfortunately will not be able to travel their before my wedding to see both places, so any info you have will help us tremendously :)

                please let me know any questions you wish me to try to answer, email me at service@devonleighhomes.com and I can possibly send you pics from that also.

                I'm not on this line too often so it's best if you use the personal email.

                cheers,
                Jen

                      @Panamania - What photographer did you use and what was the cost?
                      Cdn Redhead provided me with the cost for her photog from the resort and I would like to compare, however I only have a week to go!!!!

                      I'm sure your wedding was beautiful, you will have to update us on all the details!  Where was your reception? What was served for dinner? etc.

                      Details please!  Thnx!
