    Congrats again!

     The Real Club was a club room with lounge furniture and tables were set up for the reception. It is on the second floor of the resort across from room 229...which is the room we ended up staying in for the remainder of our trip. The pics don't really do the room justice but it was a great room for our size group. I think any of the ballrooms would have been too big and I didn't like that they don't really have windows in the ballrooms.

     

    Also the terrace off of the room is really nice for the cocktail hour. I am at work so I don't have the best pics available but here they are

      We were planning to have it outside but it was almost 100% chance of rain for after the ceremony.

       

      It was getting really gray during the cocktail hour outside, but overlooking the bay was very nice.

       

      It did pour that evening, but the room worked well. They have a full bar in there and the DJ set up a little dance floor area in the front near the bar. VERYYYY easy access to drinks!

       

      I have been to weddings and parties where the room isn't the right size for the group and it can feel very weird. Glad this room was available to us.

                I just got back from my wedding at the Royal in Cancun! If anyone has any questions please let me know. Small tip for those wanting a private reception with under 35 guests. I had 30 and we got married on the beach (I highly recommend- your pictures come out GOREGOUS with that blue ocean color). It was supposed to rain that evening so we moved our reception inside to the REAL Club on the second floor of the Royal Cancun. It was PERFECT for our size group. It has a great little terrace for a cocktail hour outside and then the dinner and party is set up inside. At first I really wanted my reception outside on a rooftop terrace, but really the A/C after being outside ALL the time was a blessing. I am glad it worked out the way it did but I just wanted to share because they never told me about the REAL club while I was planning. I would have chosen that option because ithas outdoor space overlooking the bay and an indoor space that is perfect for a smaller group. Let me know if you want to see any pictures of the room

                Hi, I get married at the Royal on 9/4/12 and just picked food options but I'm willing to try and change based on your recommendations. What were your dinner selections for all courses? What kind of cake did you select, as in flavor? did you do cocktail hour? What id you select for honeymoon breakfast? Also, any suggestions on group places to meat and greet an dine before the wedding at Gran Caribe or off site? Most of our guests are t Royal but a few next door. I'd like to pick group meals next door so all could attend. So far, it's about 20 & I expect no or then 30.

                     Hi,

                     

                    For dinner we had the Caesar Salad which is not an option on any of the menus. It was an extra $2 a person to add the Caesar Salad but it was amazing! So delicious...highly reccommend. For dinner we had two options- Chicken Florentine which was really good, and the Beef Tourendo with mushroom sauce.  I had the potatoes au gratin for my first garnish and added a second garnish for another $2 per person. For Dessert I chose the cheesecake with chocolate and the tres leches wedding cake. I really enjoyed the wedding cake, but make sure to bring little cake boxes so people can take the cake to go!

                     

                    Honestly we looked into having a "rehearsal dinner" the night before the wedding, but they wanted to charge another $15 a person. Once you get your on-site wedding coordinator, talk to her about setting up reservations in advance. We had all of our reservations squared away for our group before I even got to the resort.

                       I think if you have a wedding on the beach they provide them for you. The flower petals and everything else was mine.
