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

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

I've been checking this thread for a while and today I finally sent in my deposit and date request to the Royal. We're hoping for May 8, 2011. I can't wait to participate in the discussions over the next year and a half or so...everyone has already been so helpful!

Does anyone know how long it usually takes for someone from the Royal to get back to you to confirm your wedding date? I faxed in the form with my $200 deposit last week and haven't heard back from them yet. I am just really wanting to get my official date set so I can send out invitations! Thanks!

Nothing against the resort or anything like that we were just doing some comparisons of the resorts and decided that the Barcelo or Dreams Tulum would be a better fit for our guests, as our guests list as now changed and is somewhat out of control actually! eek!! The Royal is a beautiful resorts that hold very wonderful weddings so I wouldn't second guess any of your decisions!

Hi everyone! I tried to do a search but couldn't really find the answers to these 2 questions. Does anyone know if

1) We are allowed a rehearsal the night before at our ceremony location? Is the WC there and does it cost any extra?

2) Do they automatically allow the ballroom to be available in case of rain? Or do I need to call and get them to reserve that some how?

~Thanks!

Hi,

You can do a rehearsal dinner the night before at the ceremony loction - depending on how many people it will cost extra. If its just 15 people they usually let you set up in one of the restaurants. Also if there are going to be kids there it has to be private which does cost extra. Otherwise you can look into doing it at the Gran next door.

They do automatically book the ballroom in case of rain. In my contract from them it specifies that if it rains they automatically resreve the right to ove everything to the ballroom.

Hope this helps :)

Hey Jesmcan thanks so much for the answers to my questions!

 

I'm so excited for you to be going on your site visit so soon! I can't think of any more questions right now but if you are going to be on 5th Ave around the resort and see a florist let me know. I'm going to try and get my bridesmaid's bouquets on 5th and have my mom wrap them for us instead of spending $60 per bouquet or whatever it was the resort is charging. I saw on a website somewhere that they do have one on the Ave but of course I don't know if it's a nice florist or a hole in the wall. lol

 

Have a blast and I can't wait to hear how it went when you get back :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
