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

Recommended Posts

I have been working with carole since Suzanna left. I've been trying to get a hold of Carole for a week now to confirm my wedding date has been changed. Every time I call they say.."shes out today" or "shes out all week" well today I finally asked for anyone else that can help me. I got a voicemail from Autumn who said Carole is out for a FEW weeks and she is taking over! She confirmed my date of 12/2...and said e-mail her with questions...but didn't leave her e-mail address! I want to e-mail her to send me an updated contract.

 

Does anyone have Autumn's email adress?

For those that have a long wait in between the cocktail and reception or just reception I would suggest going to a bar off the resort. Just in case it sounds like the royal is pretty crazy and strict with outsiders.

 

Maybe you can appoint someone to take the outsiders group to hang out. About two blocks away is a really fun bar called the Tequila Barrell. They always have $1 beers and 2 for one specials. Of course right up the street is othe bars to but this one has a really fun atmosphere during the day.

This is also just a thought but maybe you could contact the bar and ask them if you have a big group they could cut you a deal to have an open bar for a few hours or maybe the first 5 drinks on you. I know it is not ideal but just a thought. It may be sort of akward to ask guests to have to leave the premises and than on top of that have to pay money to go kill time.

 

For any older guests and wine lovers there is also SUR Steak House - Playa del carmen Sur steak house

 

Beware though this place is pricey but the food and drinks and above all the atmosphere are amazing.

 

Finally my favorite place of all La Tortuga Hotel & Spa Playa del Carmen - La Tortuga Hotel Spa - Playa del Carmen Riviera Maya Mexico

 

It is only a block a way, I know many of you have heard me talk about it. They have an amazing bar and it is just a little oaisis in the middle of playa. They are always willing to negotiate with a big group so def call them tell them what you are willing to spend and I am sure they can arrange something.

 

We are doing our first look here and pictures with our bridal party. We were engaged here and I cannot tell you how amazing the service and staff are here.

Hey girls,

 

So, I'm in the process of drafting my SOD's along with all the necessary info, and I am wondering what type of info you ladies included? Besides the obvious TA info, did you include anything else, or keep it basic? Also, we are having a religious ceremony at home, so I want to include wording that we understand that not everyone will be able to make it to MX, and therefore would love it if they are able to join us celebrate at the religious ceremony at home. Suggestions on wording?

 

Lastly, so I'm confused re sand ceremony - we are having a symbolic ceremony - are we allowed to have the sand ceremony? I remember reading a post from someone saying that the Royal is not allowing that anymore

i think you can do pretty much whatever you want with a symbolic ceremony, as long as it fits in a 20-30 minute time frame. i have a sand ceremony planned for my symbolic ceremony!

yeah, I have a sand ceremony as well. I also wrote our script for the ceremony as well. Gosh, I hope that ok. On the STD's i included the TA info as well as some prices with an asterik saying these prices are subject to change, obviously. We also wrote a basic intro saying that we were getting married in MX and a little about the property. On the back we wrote our thank you and our understanding that not everyone could make it. So it was pretty informative

right now, we're looking at may 10. it's a monday, we leave on wednesday and have the ceremony on saturday. we still need to schedule with a judge, but just plan on going to a courthouse. we're keeping it as minimal as possible. we hope to just sign the papers; we are not planning on exchanging vows or rings or anything. we want mexico to be the first time for all that stuff so it's as "real" as it can be! we'll have our two witnesses with us, and likely my mom as well (she's pretty emotional and wants to see that part, even though it'll likely take all of 5 minutes AND she's seen me get married before, ha!) i'm not sure if we'll dress up or anything, but probably nothing fancy!

what are your plans?

Whats your reason for getting married before going to Mexico?

 

I feel that we're still going to have to pay for $400 for a justice of peace so why not get married in Mexico? $170 for blood tests is not that lot.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
