    Hi All!

     

    Wondering if anyone can help me whith a few questions (my wedding is not for another 8 months and I am not doing my pre-visit/tasting for a month or so, so it's hard to get straight answers from the hotel on a few things this far out)! If you have had/are having your wedding at the Royal in PDC:

     

    1) Did they let you bring your own cernterpieces? Not talking about bringing in an outside florist - was looking at doing some sort of beachy lantern situation and hauling from the states.

    2) Did they let you have a menu choice for guests? I have heard both yes - between two main courses if you determine an easy system for them to know who gets what, and no - no way, no how. Any insight as to whether or not I should push for this?

    3) Anyone opt for the light-up dance floor with DJ at your beach reception? Did it add a lot of light (worried about the darkness of the beach in January), and how much did they charge for it, in addition to the DJ fees?

     

    Thanks to anyone who can help, and happy planning to you all!

      Hi Jordan:

      Yes you can place your centerpieces. or you can bring those you can buy in Cancun or Playa del Carmen to your liking.

      In the hotel menu gives you options but you can choose the dishes you want. Should children attend, ask for a special menu for them.

      In my wedding achieves excellent contact a stylist who was the hotel where was my reception, I was delighted with his work and his price was very good. If needed I can give you the data. Good luck!

        Jordon-- Congrats!!! I havent left yet but I can answer some of them for you!

        1. Yes you can bring your own centerpieces... they will set them up for you too.

        2. I think the menu options depends on what package you get. I got the External Romance Package and then added some things but Maritza my WC told me that I could pick from any of the menus except for the buffet. I could get 1 entree, 1 garnish, 1 salad and 1 dessert. If you have more than 1 main course they want you to have some sort of place cards so that the waitstaff knows who gets what. I read that one girl had a seashell sticker on the place cards for everyone who got chicken and then had a starfish sticker for those who got beef.

        3. I got the light up dance floor and DJ Ivan. I am not sure who much light it adds but I paid $700 for the dance floor and $950 for the DJ. Kinda steep but Ive heard that both are totally worth it!!

         

        Hope this helps. let me know if you have any questions

                Hi, jordanb:

                 

                1) Yes, I brought my own decorations, and if you bring them in yourself, your coordinator will set up for you.  You'll just have to set up a meeting when you arrive to go through all the directions.

                2)  Yes, we had 3 different menu choices for the guests (vegetarian, lamb, and snapper).  I prepared a seating chart for the waiters and the wedding coordinator of which guest was sitting where and what their meal choice was, and on the place cards, I had a sticker on the back indicating the guest's entree of choice.  You should not have a problem having 1 vegetarian option and 2 meat/fish options.  If you have guests with allergies to certain foods, they are also flexible (i.e. I chose meals from a combination of packages and mixed & matched).

                3) Yes, we had two light up dance floors, and it definitely made the party!  It added a lot of nice light (we opted for all white during the wedding party entrance and dinner, and they lit up in different colors during dancing).  They charged $700 per dance floor plus the $950 fee for the DJ, which included additional lighting outside the dance floor.

                 

                Hope that helps!

                 

                Jenn
