ROYAL PLAYA DEL CARMEN BRIDES: were kids allowed for the day? ...and other questions

Recommended Posts

Thanks Steph, I appreciate it. I'm ok in the here and now but when I start thinking about how long it is till next year I get fussy. I know you are right though!

 

It is funny because I do really silly things like for example: I work as a paralegal and we have trials scheduled out through 2010 so anytime I set a reminder for a deadline for next May or something I think to myself, oh, It'll be so close then, when I see this reminder come up next year I can think back to how quickly it went by! (Silly I know!)

 

How is your last minute planning going? Are you still freaking out about job stuff or did things pan out yet? I can't wait till all of you May brides get back with loads of more information to share!

Good luck to all you brides whose weddings are coming up fast, so exciting! I think I managed to figure out the profile pic ting on my own (I'll see when this posts!) and I sorted out the deposit thing with my TA. I'm thinking April 26 2010 for a date but not positive with that date yet......

As for myself...I'm completely stressing out! LOL

 

I think we're all set...but, I decided last night that I needed a white or ivory dress to change into in case it was just too hot to dance all night in my wedding dress!

 

I'm finishing printing all my labels for the OOT bags, and gifts - Pepto, Advil, Pashminas, Name Tags for at the table (affixed to starfish), Maracca tags...I know I'm forgetting some.

 

I'm working on a Program of sorts to have on our tables for our AHR the weekend after we get back from Mexico.

 

I'm trying to relax when I can!

 

The long and short...I'm keeping myself busy with things! LOL

I haven't been asked anything! I've done all the asking, and..."where is my reception going to be held" hasn't been one of them. I've only asked to have it on the beach.

I'm sure it'll all be fine!

Shannon...only 12 days for you...17 for me...OH MY GOD!!!!!

Shay! You will have to give me the scoop! I am having my wedding and reception on the beach and am totally winging it and hoping it will be what I expect. I hope people are respectful and give you and FI some space. So excited for you!

You can count on it.

What day do you leave for Mexico? I will try to give at least one update while I'm actually at the resort...and will check the posts often, cause I'm a total internet addict...and just know that is what I will do each night before bed. (I'll have a laptop, and there is Wireless there...so why not)!?

I can't believe it is just two weeks away!

I found the dress for after the wedding - at night when we're all drinking and its just too hot to wear the wedding dress another second! I got it on sale for $80!!! And its pretty too!!!

I didn't realize that they have wifi...I will totally be bringing my lap top too!

Hola everyone!!

 

I just got back and it was amazing! I am swamped with work right now so I will post some pics and a review later, but I wanted to address some of the questions I have seen recently.

 

The Spazul - When I was there the construction was all going on by the WC's office (which is close to the spa, we had to get to the office from the street entrance) It was not actually going on in the spa. My mother and I had no problems getting our hair done. I do recommend making the appointment before you leave or the day you get there. This is high season for weddings so the appointments book up quickly. If you contact your WC they will book it for you.

 

Reception Dinner in the restaurants - Due to economic times and my small wedding party, we decided not to spend the extra on the reception dinner and do it at the restaurants. We had no problem doing so, and there were other larger wedding parties doing the same. Just a few pointers.....

 

If you have people staying in another hotel they can only eat at 2 restaurants, Pelicanos or Asiana, and you will have to pay cash for those people. We had 2 guests staying at another resort so we ate at Asiana, it is a more formal restuarant and the food is excellent! Pelicanos is also good food and is open to the beach if you would like to still have the beach atmosphere.

 

If your guests are all staying at the Royal the only restaurant that will not accept a large party is Chef's Plate they only do 2-4 people. We saw a few wedding parties eating at Maria Maire. The food there was also very good.

 

The restaurants were not too busy dring the week..I got marrried on a Thursday...so we did not have a problem getting our party in. However, we did do a farewell lunch on the weekend and the restaurants were much busier! If you are getting married on the weekend I suggest talking to the restaurant a few hours before so they will be prepared and save tables for you.

 

I know the resort says tips are included in your package, but believe me a tip goes a long way and will get you excellent service! They already have good service, but tips will get you top notch...and they will remember you all week. We tipped all week long.....once we tipped it was mainly the same people taking care of us all week, even when we went to the restaurants they remembered us and waited on us hand and foot.

 

I know I was very stressed out before I left as most of you know...but once I met with Zulma everything was worked out and all my questions were answered. It all turned out beautiful.

 

If you have any questions let me know and I will do my best to answer them. You are all going to be glad you picked The Royal!

    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
