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

Recommended Posts

Yea yesterday, when I called it kept just ringing. So I called the 1800 number, and recieved a message that there computers where down yesterday so then closed early...

 

Definitly call tomorrow. Suzanna was very nice and couldn't apologize more. We'll just see if I get the contract!! I'm sure I will.

I also talked to Suzanna yesterday. She had sent me an email last week apologizing for not getting back to me sooner. However, she never responded after I replied. So I am just getting in the habit of calling when I have questions rather than emailing. She will normally respond in an email to all of my questions while we are on the phone to make sure I get everything in writing. I highly recommend calling. You may have to wait on hold for a little bit, but it is definitely worth it.

I'm living in West Africa so calling is tough but I'll try, thanks. At one point we were told the same thing about flowers - they can do it based on color.

 

Is anyone else worried about overbooking at the Royal? I know they are sold out the whole weekend of our wedding (April 17), as is the Grand Porto, so I'm a bit nervous.

 

And does anyone have a copy of what type of events the Royal offers each night? I have been trying to track that down for months...

I tried to book a site visit at the Royal starting April 24 and the Royal is totally booked the 24th. We ended up at the Gran for that night and then at the Royal for 3. I checked with TA Jennifer about the availability for the weekend before our wedding in June and there are still rooms but not a ton of them. It's certainly something I'm going to watch.

The Royal is extremely popular and we are hearing that many weekends are sold out or close it it this spring- I do have to note that our suppliers(for TA Jennifer & TA Jill) have a guaranteed no bump policy!

 

Please note that the online agencies do not have the same policy so please warn your guests that it could be a possibility- and it is likely if the resort is oversold that the guest will be responsible for transportation and also a day pass fee ( it is the online agencies that are overselling their allotted inventory-not the resort -therefor the resort is not responsible!!)

 

Just a heads up on this!

Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering how all of you are paying for your photographers/videographers that you are bringing in. My videographer wants cash upfront when he arrives (Mike Cantarell). I guess this just worries me a bit. Any advice?

Question ladies: For a symbolic ceremony, you go through the entire wedding as if you are getting married correct? Do you still sign anything afterwards?

 

I'm having second thoughts and thinking of do the legal stuff here (if the city hall here doesn't make you say the vows- I just basically want to go to city hall sign the paperwork, get on the plane and off we go) the thing is we are only telling our parents and no one else. Im nervous about people finding out during the ceremony we are already married. Does anyone know how real it appears doing just symbolic?

 

I would appreciate any advice on this....

We are doing the same thing. I really think that it is much like the real thing, however, I dont think you have to sign anything which is usually part of the ceremony. We are only telling my parents (FI's wont even know) about getting married before. It is something we thought about for a long time but in the end it was better for us. If you are worried about people knowing I don't think anyone will know. Good luck!

We are doing the same thing. I also worry about anyone finding out, but I have been reassured that no one will know the difference. This is because you can request the ceremony to be exactly the same. We aren't even telling our parents, as we are getting my fiance's coworkers to witness for us at home. If any one asks we are going to say that we signed the certificate earlier that day (I heard that when there are alot of weddings, that can happen anyway, so the WC's can get the legal paperwork done). So pretty much we are going to deny, deny, deny, so much so that we will probably have convinced ourselves as well. hahaha.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
