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

Recommended Posts

How are all you ladies paying for your photographers, especially if you are using one from Mexico? Mine asked for the full amount, in cash, before he even starts. Is this normal? FI says pay only half and the other half when we get our pics. What does everyone think?

That is the great thing about playa you can neotiate and let them know what you can pay :) I know it can be a hassle but in the end they really are very reasonable in getting as close to your budget as possible.
Yes Linda is amazing I was going back and forth with her for ahwile regarding pricing information for reception and she was very helpful.
Even though it was more money than The Royal, I felt like it was worth it, but my fiance didn't want to have it at a non-resort.

We paid over Paypal. Half was due at the time the contract was drawn so basically ASAP. The other half was due 30 days out.

ChicagoBride, we are thinking about ordering koozies for our guests but not sure if they are worth it at The Royal. Are they? I am not sure how drinks are served in a bottle, can or glass!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
