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

Recommended Posts

We chose the gazebo because my opinion it was the most private. When we went on our site visit there was a wedding and they had people blocking it off so no one with their bathing suits could walk through. They also grew these big bushes around it so no one could look in from the beach. Most people are hanging out by the pool and the restaurants and we noticed there was not much activity where the gazebo was. You do have on lookers from their balconies but our not facing them so non of your guests or you will really notice them. Also I am a heels girl so since this is a stone rock way I could rock them :).

LOL I thought the same thing...and yes, Victoria Secret has a ton of cute ones...although I don't know where I'm gonna get the boobs to hold it up lol

I wish I could tell my bridesmaids to do the same, but I guess that would be too bridezilla? hehe (i just dont like the look of bikini top tan lines with a formal stapless dress)

I would have liked the beach one, but as a matter of personal preference (and based on Jesmcam's review), I decided I would have it at Gazebo because I preferred that side of the beach to Pelicano's side

Yeah, it's just such a toss up...beach would be better setting, but want to rock the heels and maybe can establish a little more privacy in the gazebo.

 

Does anyone know how many guests the gazebo can seat?

My problem is the exact OPPOSITE! I have too much to hold it up! Makes it hard to find a top that fits correctly. I didn't even have to tell my bridesmaids they were the one who made me think of it.

ohhh I'm sorry lol no that is outside. Yes the inside is much smaller.The wedding we saw has the bride and groom in the gazebo and all the chairs outside of it. But looking at pictures I would say you can probably get 15-20 on the inside on the gazebo. Not 100 percent sure though.

BTW, a little late for this, but wanted to let you all know that I also had to move my wedding from late Feb 2011 to November due to pricing. My guests will be saving over $1,000 per couple by us having to switch to November. It seems like all us November brides are pretty much in the same boat! It's made for a very profitable November for the Royal!

    • 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.
