In Topic: DJMannia coming to DR in July

I've tried to use the website provided for DJ mannia, but it doesn't seem to be working. My best friend is getting married in November and wants to use them... (we had them at our wedding in Playa del Carmen Mexico and they were fantastic). Anyone have their email address?

We didn't have the choice of a lobster dinner, must be a new choice. We had seafood salad, tres consomme, fillet mignon with potatoes and vodka 1000 leaves. It was all amazing. I'm sure the lobster will be excellent as well.

Thank you so much you guys!! It was such a perfect day and the pictures turned out so fantastic.
Ok - to answer some questions and give some comments to the last bit of posts:
We asked for the standard cake which serves about 15 people. We had 32 people but Micaela told us that usually the cake goes to waste. When we showed up, we had a cake surprise. We got the upgraded 2 tiered cake. And, most of it went to waste. Everyone was so full from the amazing dinner that not many people ate it. We ended up with 3/4 of it back in our room, which we had to throw out. Very tasty though - tres leche.

We were told that if there if it rained or if it was very windy we would be moved to the ballroom. This happened to a couple that was married in November. Her review is on here under the wedding review's category.

There were 5 other weddings just at the royal the same day as ours. There were a few at the gran too. The beach was packed with receptions and same with the garden. But we really felt like we had our own space. They split the receptions far enough away. There was a huge kitchen set up on the beach which made the food come out even fresher.

When we were there we had one of the smaller weddings - 32 people. We thought we had a huge wedding for a destination one (especially at such an expensive resort too!). The biggest one we saw was 150 people! Crazy!!

Ok - so there may be travel advisories out, but honestly I don't see why. My mom travelled with us as a group but came without a guest. She isn't the most independent person either. But, she stayed in her room alone and went shopping everyday alone (for hours at a time, usually twice a day!). She walked up streets I wouldn't have thought of walking even with my husband. She said she met some really nice people and talked with a lot of the locals. Mom said she felt totally safe. So I'm not sure how much it could have changed in the last 3 months!

OH - and I believe the new Playa Coco Bongo opened - GO if you have the chance. The one in Cancun is unbelievable!! Youtube it - you'll see what I mean!!

The dancefloors look the same. The dance floor can change to both white light or multi colored with or without "x"s.
