I 100% agree! I have also read alot of positive reviews from brides from the Royal in Cancun and PDC....obviosuly not every wedding will be perfect, but the majority go without a hitch! i guess we just have to prepare ourselves to deal with any unexpected thnigs........although unfortunte, these negative experiences have not stopped me from doing the best that i can to make sure everything is crystal clear (on paper!) in communication and planning........Happy planning ladies!!

Ssntos-were your girls not guests at the Real? I can imagine that you may run into some conflicts with them not being Real guests.
I think we have to remember that being guests in another country, and not having the opportunity to see/taste/set things up ourselv, etces wedding planning does become limited. I've chosen a DW b/c I want everything to be taken care of for me. It's very possibe not everything I expect will be accommodated to a tee - but remember that appens here at home all the time, so it's even more likely it will happen over seas where you are unable to oversee the whole process.
I think all email communication should be printed out. This can help avoid a lot of "he said - she said" type complaints.
Happy planning ladies!!!
