  1. Thank you! I just posted a review on the other thread melanderic2017 started. I think it's 2017/2018 Royalton Riviera Cancun Weddings. I will try to post some pictures later!
  2. Hey! I had my wedding in January. It was amazing! Please excuse any name mispellings (honestly I cant remember some names of locations/people) this is going to be a long post.... My wedding coordinators were Branda and Maite. They were very attentive and helpful. We arrived 3 days before the wedding at about 6pm and Brenda was waiting for us in the lobby. We were upgraded to a presidential suite from a standard room (forgot the name but it was the cheapest choice), We got settled in and then met with both girls the next morning. They had a print out of our wedding details and we went t
  3. Hi Julie I had my wedding in January this year. My ceremony was held on the sky terrace and reception on the beach bar. I loved the beach bar. It was perfect but the food was cold since it had to be held outside in crates. Since your party is small, I would suggest the semi private room in the buffet. I had the Mexican family style dinner. The ceviche was awesome. Also liked the steak, but like I said food was kind of cold. Hope that helps!!!! -Lauren
  4. That's funny, I have about 50 different hangover bags in my cart from EverlongEvents. I want to purchase them but I want to wait until I know the exact number of guests because the shipping is $10. So I only want to do a one time purchase! I also have a couple other items in my cart besides the bags. My planner told me I can avoid the set up fee if someone from my group sets up the items I bring for the reception. From what i remember during my sight tour, the Nautica bar doesn't close to the hotel guests until 5pm. That means set will most likely take place during my ceremony/cocktail ho
  5. I'm getting prices from my planner because my wedding is in January so we're 4months away. Thank you for the string light idea. I'm not sure why I didn't think of bringing my own. I wonder what the set up fee is. We wanted to include all of our guests for the rehearsal dinner but I was told the max. For semi-private dinner is 45. So we're just gonna do a welcome drink at the main bar. This of course is something we're just throwing together and having everyone meet us at the bar. I'm planning on giving out hang over kits and day of itinerary cards. Lucky for winning that free photo shoot!
  6. Thanks, we actually would prefer 40 guests. We wanted an small intimate wedding but it's difficult because we both have lots of family.It must be hard being a planner and doing everything via email. Don't you feel like you're not in control of your wedding? My planner won't even send me an example of table arrangements for the Nautica bar. She told me I have to wait till I get there. Do you have one? My photographer is actually a family friend but extremely talented. We're flying him there. It was either, use their photo pro, which I wasn't too impressed with, or pay $850 vendor fee and hir
  7. Yes, take advantage of it, you're paying for it! So, I was quoted $20 per lantern and $30 per corsage, which is odd. I think I'm going to replace the lanterns with pillar candles to line the aisle. I'm also contemplating adding an additional hour of open bar to extend the reception, but it really depends on my guest count. We're hoping for only 60 but looks like it can be close to 75. So much planning, so little time.
  8. I feel cheated! Lol. Maybe it's because I didn't upgrade my chairs? Either way, still taking advantage of the semi private dinner offered in the package for my rehearsal dinner, for 30 guests. Thank you for sharing the pillar candle idea. I definitely have to look into that. I'm so excited!!!!
  9. Do you have the same package? The Love package? That's awesome! Are you using string lights or sparklers? I'm waiting for those quotes.
  10. Hey Everyone! So I'm exactly 4 months out till my wedding and am sooo excited. I reached out to my wedding coordinator, Christine, 2 weeks ago and she has been awesome so far. I want to make sure I share my experiences with you girls because I felt so out of the loop these pass couple of months. While I understand the reasoning to have to wait to plan with the coordinator, I was so anxious about our spending and budget. Christine has already sent me a rough draft of our invoice and it's not so bad. I was surprised by one charge I missed or wasn't aware of. They charge $20 extra per person
  11. No, I booked directly with their wedding department. My wedding is January 15, 2017. The person who gave me the tour said May is always a busy month, so that's why there were so many weddings. I believe her too, I saw at least one bride a day and several ceremonies from a distance.
  12. Hi Girls, I mistakenly posted on the older thread about my recent trip there for the bridal promotion. It was a long post Anyways, I can't believe its taking so long for some of you to get date confirmation. I just switched my date and locations due to the fact that we don't think the chapel is large enough to accommodate our wedding. They say max is 60, with chairs added, but we think it's more like 40 comfortably. Also the cocktail hour area for the chapel, an area that has hammocks, is not shaded at all. It was so hot just going on the tour! Just something to keep in mind. So we decide

  14. Hey guys, Just got back from RRC. We went for the bridal promotion and stayed Thursday- Monday. The resort is beautiful and massive but not overwhelming. We were told they were 97% full and yet it never felt overcrowded. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite and it was great. The doubl shower is amazing! So the trip could have went terribly wrong because all though we confirmed the trip, site tour and menu tasting in February, the wedding office had no idea of my confirmation or arrival. The Wedding Manager, Daniella, who had arranged everything stopped working a month prior and appare
  15. Hey Mel! Thank you for this. my wedding is booked for January 2017. I am planning on having the ceremony in the chapel and reception on the terrace, but our guest count is increasing so I am thinking maybe switching the ceremony to the terrace and having the reception inside one of the ballrooms. We are going to do a site visit next month which includes a tour and menu tastings, I'm sure we'll know by then. I posted on the last thread about a week ago and no one responded so I guess that thread died out. My question was for the brides who already had their weddings there though. I was wonde
