Getting married in Playa del Carmen - June '08

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

After countless weeks of pouring over Trip Advisor and getting confused over which resort to pick I came across this forum. What a great site with so much information!

Our wedding is going to be at the beginning of June and I'm just finalizing my wedding date of June 5th at the Royal Playa del Carmen... although I keep questioning my choice and wondering if I should choose one of the many other beautiful resorts I've researched.

So far I've picked the Royal Playa del Carmen b/c it is w/in walking distance to the town of Playa del Carmen, the pictures look beautiful, the reviews are good and it's the size I'm looking for. I had a hard time finding a resort for the children who are attending, but those guests are able to stay at the sister resort, the Gran Porto Real, next door.... which is not ideal, but I think will still work.

It's sooo tough picking the place! Plus I keep worrying about making sure I choose a location that works for all my guests.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Congrats, and welcome to the forum. I gave the Royal a long look, as well, but decided I wanted a place where my nieced and nephews could be on hand (so I could push them into the pool whenever I had the urge).

Resort weddings with children can be a challenge as many of the resorts in Playa do not cater to them. If your focus is a resort wedding and you want to be within a couple of blocks of 5th avenue in Playa, then the Royal (wedding) and the Portal Real (caters to children) is your best bet. There are other resorts at the level of the Royal that also have sister hotels near to them that cater to children, are a solid 15 to 20 minute walk to 5th Avenue. Also, if you want to have the most flexibility for your ceremony, I would encourage you to look into a wedding on a secluded beach within the Playa del Carmen area.


Good luck and take care.

I've never stayed at the Royal PDC, but on the way to RM the last time we were in Mexico our bus dropped some people off there and it looks absolutely gorgeous (just the lobby blew me away!)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
