Hi there.... I'm getting married June 2016 and trying to decide on where and found RWS.... As it's the weekend and I'm impatient, I was wondering what the total out of pocket cost I'm looking at for 30-50 people... I'm so stressed and overwhelmed and it's only a week in!!!

    It looks like the Royalton has changed their exclusive photographer and videographer from True Colors to Pictorial Memories.  Has anyone had any experiences with Pictorial Memories?

      Yet another bride planning on getting married at RWS in April 2016.

       

      If anyone can send me any of their info re:pricing that'd be great!  Email: seamusplusliv@gmail.com

       

      Is it only me that thinks their child rates are expensive? or is that average?  I've only been to one all inclusive so I have very limited knowledge about these things.

       

      Thanks!

        Hi everyone - We're trying to figure out the best time to have the ceremony.  We were thinking 4:00pm, but the reception space won't be available until 7:00pm.  This leaves an awkward 1.5 hour gap.  Is 5:00pm too late?  We want to make sure there's enough light for the ceremony and pictures during cocktail hour.  (P.S. Our wedding is in December, so sunset tends to be earlier.)

        I married in Mexico, but I would assume the same general rules apply.

        I was told to do the ceremony no later than 2 hours before sunset.  You can find your sunset times online with a quick google search.  I would also ask how the sunsets work -- ie in the Mayan Riviera Mexico you just lose the sun, no pretty sunsets.

         

        In January the sunset at 5:30pm, because I was a bit nervous of everything starting late I had my ceremony at 3pm.

        Truth be told everything started on time - so I could have pushed my ceremony until 3:30pm.

         

        We went something like this

        3-330pm ceremony and toast

        330-400pm group and family photos

        400-500pm  we did our bride/groom photos while everyone else had a cocktail hour with mariachi

        500pm reception

         

        Hope that helps!

          I'm getting married in December at 4 but reception at 7. I'm doing a cocktail hour before dinner. I was first worried about having too much time inbewteen, but it's more important to me that I get good pictures! It's the Caribbean , what's the worst possible thing for your guests, that have to have one or two more tropical drinks while they wait for dinner!?

          Hi ladies, for pricing it says a DJ is $220/hour and sound system for reception is $500. If you pay for the DJ do you have to pay for the sound system as well? Silly question but I feel like they really nickel and dime for everything
