Craziness!! How exciting for you both! I guess if I can make a decision by Feb at the latest HOPEFULLY all should be good... I am also looking at other options though... but if you guys can keep updating how the plans are going it would be really great :)  It seems so hard to actually choose a resort and make a decision... how is a girls to know which one to choose??

yeesh :)

Hi Sarah, I know exactly where your at... that was me two months ago! The hardest decision is what resort to choose. I almost hired a destination wedding planner because I thought they could narrow down my search. I also went on the web and researched each and every 5* resort in Cancun, DR, Bahamas and I read everyones feedback on trip advisor plus looked at every picture I could find. Sooooo after all that I found this website and my first question was "has anyone hired Luxe Destination Wedding Planners" I received enough feedback to convince me that I didn't need to go that route. After reading the forum on here about The Royal Playa Del Carmen I knew this was the resort for our wedding! Now were booked and I can finally relax and look forward to the planning.

 

I guess we all have a vision of what we want for our weddings, I'm sure you will find the perfect place! Best of luck:)

Debbie-- I can totally relate to you!!

 

Once we decided we wanted a destination wedding my crazy research self went nuts and I read SO much about so many places.  Luckily we were pretty set on Mexico from the start but this site has been a HUGE help.

 

I also debated a million times (still do) about the decision to hire a wedding planner.  At this point though we've gotten so much done ourselves (and pretty well I think :)) that I think we're going to forgo one. 

 

Best of luck to you on your search Sarah!!!

This thread got pretty dead so just checking in with my fellow Nov 2011 Royal brides-- how goes planning ladies?

 

The one thing that's still on my plate is photographer.....I'm having commitment issues!  Anyone booked theirs yet?  Have a good tip?  GAWD doesn't that outside vendor fee suck?!

You do not have to have a DJ to get the light-up dance floor. You can rent it alone.

I ended up posted my question on another fourm and Jesmcan replied. Thanks again Jesmcan!

 

Anyway I wanted to post it here for you in case you missed it.

 

welcome!

 

1. Yes that is correct $200 for 5 pieces, it s rented through the resort, they have their own vendor they work with. Some girls have used outside vendors from Cancun but than you get hit with the $350 outside vendor fee.

 

2. The light up dance floor is not included, but you can rent it for an additional cost with the DJ.

 

3.That is exactly what it means and its the additional cost per guest at the royal or gran porto and than its even more for non resort guests.

 

I was exactly where you are now one year ago. It flys by, I can't believe its only three weeks away. Enjoy every moment.

Congrats! You will love the Gazebo - it's an amazing place for a wedding! I also had a beach recpetion and WOW - it was the best decision. The light-up dance floor is amazing on the beach and definately worth the $$$.
