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

Recommended Posts

Just met with Zulma. She is the BOMB.

I feel so much better about my wedding and she is such a dear, sweet person. She's one of those people you meet and you instantly want to be her best friend.

 

She is so ON TOP OF IT...and willing to do ANYTHING for you.

I'm so totally and completely excited right now I can hardly stand it!

 

BTW, we moved my wedding to 5 pm. At 4 pm it is VERY HOT here. The light is also a lot better from 5-7 pm (I'm a photographer. It's important to me). The beach receptions are just GORGEOUS! It's a magical place!

I'm not too sure how I feel about making my final payment now that it's done. Aja will be transferring me to an on-site coordinator soon, but many of you have said they are slow to respond these days. I'm not looking forward to that.

Are y'all traveling with cash, travelers checks, credit cards...? I'm undecided as to what to do. I do not want to travel with large wads of cash, but am not sure how much of an inconvenience the other choices would be. This is our first time to Mexico, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Also, any one who is traveling Continental.. did you contact the airline ahead of time to inform them that you are traveling with a dress?

Ooo that's a really good point on contacting the airline about traveling with the dress. I'm curious how everyone is getting their dress there. I don't want the airline to just throw it around.....

Yay, glad to hear that she is taking good care of you. I'm sure that is what it comes down to; she gives the brides who are there and about to have/having their day the top priority over ones back home. I guess that is what we will ultimately prefer, right? lol. I know, easier said than done and I'll probably freak out too lol when i'm close to the time.

Have a a great time, Julia!

i'm trying yet again with no luck. i hope to still get in somehow! i am slightly nervous about the rain, too. hoping if it really comes down to having rain for my evening wedding, we could just push everything up and beat any pending rain.

i called american airlines a few weeks ago. my dress counts as my carry-on. they say they won't hang it up but it can go in an overhead compartment. looks like i'll have to have it pressed there unless i can sweet-talk them into hanging it somehow!

Hmm this is funny because when my TA called and got the run around and demanded Zulma call me today, they said she was with a bride... guess it was you! lol.

Seriously though, Zulma isn't responding to any of my many emails, nor my TA's emails or phone calls... I am beyond tears. I need to know I have my stuff budgeted correctly. Di- Maybe I'll forward you the email I sent her and see what you think of my amounts.

That part is annoying, but I figure it's better than nothing for those who can't be there and want to see it!
That is so neat! Thanks for sharing the link!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
