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

Recommended Posts

Hi Alisha,

 

To be honest, i found no reviews on my photographer Samual Luna, but he is part of the WPJA - a professional organization of highly talented wedding photosjournalists. I found him on their website, and he has won some awards and has been quick to respond to my emails. So i booked him because of this and because his photos are really beautiful. His style is exactly what I am looking for, artsy and candid! He was in the same listings as Matt adock and sol tamargo from del sol photog so i think he is just as good as them.

 

 

best of luck to you and the photog you choose!

Depending on what package you pick, I would most definitely recommend booking other outside vendors.

Our package included a musician for the ceremony and the mariachi for dinner so we didn't book 'outside' vendors. If your package doesn't include the musicians, I would not book through the resort. I had read (earlier in this thread, I believe) that the SAME mariachi band could be booked for much less if you do it directly.

Thanks Tighty,

We picked the ultimate and it includes the other musicians. However we went with your recommendation of Ian :) thank you

Also if you don't mind me asking how many people did you have and was the dance floor big enough?

Hi Tighty Whitey -

 

When you said your ceremony started 15 min late, was that due to the resort error or the minister running late? Or was it you or the groom that were running late? Just curious how often the resorts start the ceremony late?

 

Thanks!

Hi Ladies,

 

I had posted a new thread about this but than realized I really should have posted it here.

 

 

Has anyone planned or is planning on using the hair and makeup service at the salon at The Royal?

 

It is included in the package that we chose but I hate not being able to have a trial. My biggest fear is that everything would come out horrible and than I would have a melt down.

Hey jesmcan,

we had 31 guests in total and the dance floor we had was perfect in size for our group. I'm sure they can make it bigger if you have a larger guest count.

PS: you're gonna love Ivan!

Hi Adriana,

I honestly don't know why we were delayed. The minister was on time, and I was with my parents, maid of honour, and man of honour in our room waiting for the WC to let us know we can walk out.. I'll ask DH if he knows why there was a hold up.

Hey Jesmcan,

I had my hair and make-up done at the Royal. I was pretty happy with what they did even though it wasn't the look I originally wanted. The weather had a part in making me change my look at the last minute.

My MOH and I both booked trials at the resort salon two days prior to the wedding. I would do the same, if I were you. It wasn't expensive at all and worth it, I think.

One thing I didn't like about my appearance was how 'shiny' I got but that had a lot more to do with the heat than the makeup.

Thanks Tighty...i saw your teaser photos! I love how her pictures are so vibrant! But I wonder about the night time shots. Why do they look so grainy? Is it because there wasn't enough lighting? The black and white shots look great, though. Do all photogs have this problem?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
