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

Recommended Posts

We have 37 people booked, besides us. Yes, she is being truley selfish. I told her that too. She said she would go but she isn't happy about it. It doesn't make it any easier. Having divorced parents on both sides, who don't get a long is really tough. I'm not going to deal with it that day though, I really can't.

 

We have another friend who can take his place, it is just an akward situation to bring up so late in the game.

 

50 days and counting!

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?
I have talked to Angie about this and she said that if I wanted a Couture cake that I would have to pay the price as is, there is no "upgrading fee". You could still get the cake that is included too, they won't give you a discount. And also, I was told that even if I got one of their three layered cakes reduced to 2 layers, I would still have to pay the full price (180-250 depending on the cake). I think we'll stick with the free cake.

Also, Angie told me that you can substitute the roses for any bouquet that is $80 in the standard bouquet brochure, and they can change the colours of the flowers no problem.

Agreed. It really sucks. I'm such a flower and cake person but their prices are such a rip off and you have to say no somewhere. sad.gif Do yall think the stardard cake will feed 25 people?

Thanks! I guess I'm going to have to stick to the free cake too and maybe just add real flowers :o)

 

Good to hear that we can change the roses!

 

There are just sooo many extra costs that I didn't realize in the begining that now I have to see which ones I really want.

Hello Ladies...My FI and I are putting the deposit down today for our wedding at the RPDC :)) May 14, 2011 Yay!!

 

Oh yeah and NOW my parents both decided to tell me this isnt what they want to pay for...Im being selfish and asking way to much for guest to "vacation" to attend our wedding. sad.gif Seriously why did they wait to say this once we finalize things?? Im so upset BUT FI and I are set this is what we want...Its our wedding.

 

I have a feeling this is just the beginning of the DRAMA....I wanted DW to avoid all this, but I guess sometimes its unavoidable.

We just ordered the couture cake, does anyone know if these melt? Will they keep this cake outside for all guests to see ? or do they bring it out the last min. righ before you are to cut the cake?

 

Our wedding is a month away! 73 people booked and confirmed! can't wait!

I HATE the free cakes. It's stupid.

 

I read that most of times, guests will be too full to eat cake i wouldn't recommend upgrading the cake. A small cake will be fine.

 

FI's one of groomsmen bailed so he asked another friend to step in. One of his best mans is avoiding his phone calls/texts so we're counting him out for the wedding.

 

Mrs.G, I understand that is tough but you really should do what you and your FI do. At first, my FI's family gave us hard time but now they're on board.

Di- I thought the best man that was giving you trouble booked his trip finally?

 

And to Mrs. G2B- You need to have the wedding you want, not what everyone else wants. You just have to be okay with the possibility that you may end up with very few guests and no parents. I only have 13 people coming and my dad isn't going. It is just going to be a small group of friends and my mom. I am ok with that now. It is still the wedding I want and I am happy.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
