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

Recommended Posts

I have the classic wedding package and was wondering if I upgraded to a couture cake do I have to pay only the difference or the full amount? Has anyone asked about this yet?

I am curious about this too. Same with the flowers. I am not a rose girl and that's seems to be the only choice for their standard bouquets. I like one of their upgraded bouquets... it has peonies it in (my fave!) but it's $230!!! INSANE! Can you not pay the diff since you get these items in your package anyways or do you still have to pay the full amount for these upgrades?

They sale everything off the rack but their dresses are in prestine condition. They take really good care of their dresses and they have mostly 8's and 10's in size. Worth a walk through!
That's not too far from me either, I will definitely check it out, thanks!

I'm using Smart Honeymoon and I will probably ask for something diff for bridal shower like lingerie.

I booked him directly because I wanted to ensure that I actually had him as the DJ. He told me I would not be charged the vendor fee because he is the in-house DJ for the Royal anway. If this is not the case, i'm charging it to him lol.

I think 9pm is really late. Are you doing apps in between or anything to hold them over?

We are doing the beach reception same day you are. We got the luxury package which included the tables, chairs, standard centerpiece (candle with glass plate). They also will provide a dance floor but it is basically two pieces of plyboard. You can actually do a search for it, someone posted it on the forum. You provide the rest of the decor. LOL, you could use mine after I'm done! My reception is over at 8pm....ha! rofl.gif

yep, it's super late! i'm thinking about having everyone meet for apps/snacks at one of the restaurants before the ceremony. there will be the option to have the champagne and cake after the ceremony. but i'm REALLY hoping that i'll be able to move the dinner up an hour or two now that i'm upgrading to the private reception.

are you doing anything after your reception?

I am pretty sure you can have your dinner start at any time as long as the location is available. Mine is at 730 pm for example. I was told the usual timeline is wedding, then 1/2 hour for pictures, then 1 hour for cocktail reception (if you are having one), then 3 hour reception. So my wedding is at 530pm, cocktails at 630, reception at 730pm. Hope this helps!

You have to pay the full amount. I already asked (bouquets too). That's half the reason we chose the "Free" wedding package and then we are just upgrading and paying for all the customized touches we want. Ends up being the same cost as the eternal romance package, plus the minister is free! It pays to stay 5 nights in a Master Suite.

Sorry to hear that- I am running into the same issues. If you want to change anything in your package, it seems like the included option is completely void and they want to charge you an arm and a leg for anything different. Doesnt make too much sense!!

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
