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

Recommended Posts

Thanks for all the replies! Jescman, how are you in direct contact with Zulma of the resort? I thought that you had to deal with the Michigan office until one month prior to your wedding?

 

 

I have to also pay the $350 for outside vendor fee. The cost is ridic! It's limiting me on hiring an additional florist, etc! Just with lounge set up and photographer, it will be an additional $700 down the drain!

 

When did everyone hire their DJ, photographer, etc? Should I book the DJ now? Do I have to let the WC know this now?

 

Re Centerpieces. What did you all do? Are you using the Royal's choices? I cannot be bothered packing stuff and bringing it down with me. I am ALWAYS either right on the mark or overweight with luggage so I know I will not have the room!

 

I was thinking of not really communciating with the Michigan WC since they seem to cause more stress than anything. Do you think it's wise to leave everything until I get to the resort and meet with the resort WC?

 

aagghhhhh!!!!!

Do you have any photos of Turtle Bay's lounge set up? I went to their website but was unable to find any photos of the lounge set up. I want to see how they compare to another company I found which is a lot more pricier

You are not suppose to work with the Meixco WC's till a month before. I just worked with Zulma after our site visit and the ceremony music was one of the things I sent her and asked about.

Honestly in my opinion I would not communicate with the Michigan office and wait till the month before for the WC. I think everyone here has all the resources you need without having to contact them. You may still them in order to make some decisions but for the most part not really. So yes if it was me I would not contact them in order to stay sane lol.

I just got a breakdown on the costs of everything today but no official bill yet.

Hi ladies I don't know if anyone knows the answer to this. On the check list is says the price is $20 per bag of rose petals. How many bags do you think you need for the aisle?

rose petals would be be pretty. so much better than the red runner! i'm guessing a bag is packed pretty well with petals. i would guess just one or two, depending on how scatterd you'll want them (or how windy it is if they start to blow away!)

that makes me wonder... how do we know how long the aisle is? it'll make a difference for editing the processional songs, etc!

I know what you mean! I hope for a true bill 30 days out so that's almost a week away. We'll see about that!

I think I'm signed up for 4. I went based on what the WC said about the sweet heart table. She said one bag spreads evenly on the sweet heart table so depending on your guest count/aisle length that's why I did 4. I want it to actually look like there's flowers on the ground. I wish I could actually see the size of this bag... it would it so much easier to decide.

Thanks ladies for all the responses on the rose petals. I agree it depends on how many guests. I would love to see pics to. I was searching but could not find one wedding at The Royal that shows the aisle at the Gazebo with rose petals.

 

One thing I did notice if you are having 40 guests or more from all the pictures I have seen it looks like they do 6 chairs per row. I decided to do assigned seating for the ceremony because I fell in love with the tags that Lisa showed :).
