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!
