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

Recommended Posts

Newbie here! Thanks for all the info ladies. We made a decision today that The Royal PDC is the place for our wedding! I feel so much more confident since I've read through the posts on this thread. I'm not done yet... on page 44 of 147 I think, but I'm taking notes along the way! So many good tips and advice from everyone so THANKS!!smile123.gif

May Bride you look beautiful! I can't wait to see more pictures!

 

 

Sorry I forgot to quote everyone so I cannot remember everyones names to respond to sad.gif

 

We were also told by our TA that Gran guests do not have to pay extra because it is considered part of the Real resorts. But I do think it depends on the package you pick. Congrats on your engagement party.

 

We are also doing welcome bags. The day before we leave we are doing a brunch with our parents and bridal party and we are giving out the thank you items than.

 

For the girls and moms I am doing personalized tote bags with personalized haviana flip flops, shirts that say brides maid and maid of honor, snacks for the plane, and a disposable under water camera. I also got one for the moms.

 

For the guys and dads we are doing personalized back packs with reef flip flops that have a bottle opener on the bottom ( you can bring these or wear them on the plane by the way) snacks, pack of cards, and a disposabe under water camera.

 

I have not decided for all the other guests yet because like MayBride said it is really hard to coordinate. The bridal party and parents are comming down with us from Monday to Sunday. Everyone else is arriving at diffrent times and staying at both The Royal and Gran. We acctually have alot of people staying in Tukum and other places and than comming Thur - Sun for the Wedding.

 

Also for the parents as gifts we got them a private dinner on the beach and a couples massage.

 

By the way ladies I had asked this a few posts back but for those of you getting married on the beach what are you planning ong doing for shoes? I am a heels girl sad.gif

Okay I am sooo frustrated!

 

I have been on the phone all day with people from the Real resorts. I guess my TA overlooked one miror detail. Here goes...

 

We WERE having the weddding at the gazeebo at the Royal and then I was having to do the semi-p recetion at the Gran (so kids could come)...that was okay. However, my travel agent didn't think about my daughter, mom, aunt, and bridesmaid (who is doing my hair and make-up) coming over to my room before the ceremoney to get ready. The thing is that kids are not allowed in the rooms AT ALL, and ONLY guests staying in the Gran Suits (the top two room categories $$) are allowed to be at the Royal outside of the ceremoney time slot. Long story short...I either have to take all my things and go to the Gran to get ready then come back for the ceremoney at the Royal then go back to the Gran for the reception ( alot of walking..lol) OR change my wedding and my hotel to the Gran then move all my things over to the Royal after the wedding for the honeymoon. I know it is not the end of the world, but there are other things that have had to change as well...like wedding time and the room ameneties. I am just frustrated and needed to vent.

 

Sad,

Cyndi

Cyndi,

 

That is the same issue i have encountered. My of my family and bridesmaids will be at the Gran Porto while the wedding & reception is at The Royal. They can't help me get dressed in my room Unless they pay for the day pass which i think is $80, my WC said then they could probably be let into my room. Since no one wants to pay for that, i have decided I will be getting ready in my moms room at The Gran Porto and will just have to walk over the The Royal before the ceremmony. Wasn't my ideal choice but i guess this is what I have to do.

Cinny and Aerezo I am sorry to hear you both had to experience this. Cinny I totally understand why you are frusterated. I did not know this either! All my bridal party and parents are thankfully staying at The Royal but I have 4 flower girls! and obviously they will be staying at The Gran. I think this is so mis-leading since it says children are allowed for all wedding related activities. I really don't see what the big deal is in having them at the room. Does this mean they won't be allowed in the spa either??

 

GRRRRRRR....contacting the WC and she what she says I will keep you guys posted

I was married on the beach and I think you will kill yourself in heels! The walkway to the beach has wood slats with sand in between...lemmie see if I can find a pic.

I think it would be killer to try to go down this with heels on. There are two wedding sites on the beach...but every entrance to the beach has these slats. Plus manovering the sand in heels would be difficult.
Just my opinion from my experience!

Oh my gosh, I can't believe they won't let Gran guests into the rooms at the royal for the wedding day, i didn't even think of that. Would they be able to sneak in?

Thanks, Kim
Kim, that changed when the packages changed earlier this year. Depending on your package you are allowed a certain number of guests from any "real resort" then there are 2 prices for additional guests over that number, a cheaper price for additional guests staying at real resorts and additional guests not staying at real resorts. Hope that made sense...

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
