OMG!!! I am floored, I cannot believe this. I think it is possible that it may have to do with time of year. I am getting married in November which is low season for them. When are you getting married? That is the only thing I can thik of. I'm mean this is just ridiculous. There has to be a reason as to why their prices are diffrent..ggrrrrrrrrrrrr

but get this, she emails me back with this:

 

Hola Adriana,

 

 

 

I’m diving crazy and trying to get the real information.

 

 

Just to making this clear, I’ve work here for more than three years, the prices for 2009 and next year are the same (attached)

 

 

I’m trying to give you all the explanations possible only with the interest you would like to join us, please make sure we don’t have any exceptions to anybody, just want to make sure everybody have a nice time.

I am literally so confused by all of this. No I do not have an e-mail anymore I'm sorry. Once we booked it I didn't think I needed it any more. I just pasted everything into a word doc and kept it for my wn personal reference. Did you ask if time of year varies and maybe also people? We are having 100.

After all the hupala with DJ Ivan and the rate changes I e-mailed Angie. I sent her over an excel sheet with everything itemized with the prices. I basically did her job for her. All I asked was for her to cofirm the prices for me and have them to me by today. That was four days ago, I re-emailed her again, guess what nada.

I am beyond frusterated and fed up with the Royal at this point. I will keep everyone posted on what we end up doing and how the prices differ if you book everything your self and do a non-resort wedding.

I am getting quite frustrated, as well. When I spoke with Angie a week ago, about this whole DJ stuff, she was supposed to get back to me - I sent her 2 emails and she was going to call me, haven't heard anything. I also haven't heard from my WC at the resort since I put the deposit down, I have sent her a few emails as well. At this point, all I want to know is the price that we were hopefully locked in at when we put down the deposit to reserve our day, and what is happening with other DJ vendors besides Ivan.

It feels like once we put our deposit down, the communication became horrific - I know that November was their busy season, but still....

Im thinking of getting married at the Royal in Playa del Carmen. I was wondering if anyone knows if they offer room discounts for guest since we will have 50-60 people attend.

 

Also any photographer recommendations?

I completely agree. I never heard back from Zulma after our site visit. And Angie still has not confirmed the prices. I am working on speaking to someone higher up at The Royal who will answer all our questions. I am more concerned about the constant changing of rates, fees, and other stuff.

Hi Ladies -

The dj stuff seems pretty confusing - thanks for keeping us all updated as things change.

 

In terms of the sailing prices - has anyone looked into other companies in the area like Fat Cat Sailing or Paradise Catamaras? Maybe they have more consistent prices?

 

And does anyone have experience with playaweddings.com for photography?

    • 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.
    • 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?
