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

Recommended Posts

Apparently my WC Maritza keeps telling me that I have to hire the DJ to get the dance floor. I am trying to have my travel agent who did all the booking and who supposedly has a "great relationship with the resort" to see if she can get a different answer or find out what she can do. They quoted me $700 just for the dance floor rental!!!

 

If I can rent the floor for $400 I will consider that over the $700 rental fee or even the $850 DJ fee.

 

Can you send me that checklist you have that says that by any chance?

 

Thanks for the info cheesy.gif

I think you should check that out! I believe you can actually just rent the light up dance floor without having to hire the entire DJ service and pay almost 900!! I myselft do not plan on using a DJ because they do provide you with a sound system in which you can plug in your ipod to. I've seen pics of the speakers and they are pretty big! i Have pics if you want to see them! I would ask your WC what the cost of the floor alone might be........Even tho their checklist says 600 for the floor which is crazy! But i got this price sheet from a girl on here for dj Mannia's services and the price for a 12x12 light up floor was 400.......which is better than what the resort would charge you!

Hi Jes,

 

I got mine from Staples (in Canada), but I found them on the US site too:

http://www.staples.com/Avery-Vinyl-Badge-Holder-Vertical-4-x-3/product_491455?cmArea=SEARCH

 

I've also seen similar "badge holders" at Wal-Mart....maybe check Target too?

 


Hope that helps!

Hello ladies!  Finally got through reading all 600+ pages on this post.  Very informative!

 

I'm also getting married at the Royal, on December 12, 2010.  And..I just booked the place this week so, yeah, I have under four months to plan this thing!

 

So far the hardest part is done, which was picking a place.  I just ordered card samples that should be coming in Monday and as soon as I choose one of the three I picked, it's off to the printers and ready to be mailed out.  Currently I'm building the website but still waiting to hear back from my Royal WC.  I was trying to see if anyone else has her but didn't see her name anywhere on this thread.  Her name is Katia, and so far she's been okay but I'm still waiting to hear details on how to go about getting group rates from her.  She said she'd send me a price sheet for both Royal and Gran Porto, but nothing yet.

 

As for the Gran Porto, I have a feeling a lot of my guests will be staying there too.  I know Gran guests need a day pass to go to Royal (unless they've an upgraded room) but what about Royal guests going to Gran Porto?  And don't the two share a beach?  I am thinking it mighth be possible to hang out in the beach area without a problem.

 

So happy to have found these forums!  You ladies have been life-saving!  <3

Thank you Rosie!

 

So just found out Mexicana officially suspended all flights in definetly. I am not going to lie I am totally freaking out. My TA is away on vacation until Monday. I am so afraid we a. won't get our money back b. even if we do everyone will need to rebook flights, flights are three times more than what everyone paid back in Feb. I have 85 guests all flying Mexicana.

 

Anyone is the same boat and has gotten any direction on what to do?

Jesmcan-

I am so sorry to hear that! When we first got word about Mexicana we changed carriers because our tickets were booked through American with Mexicana operating the flight. The process was actually very seamless and we did not incur any additional charges as they were taken care of. Fingers crossed for you! Good luck!!

Hello ladies, I know I haven't been on in a while, but I decided to check in for old times sake. We got married on June 18 and I noticed some were questioning the light up dance floor. We did NOT pay for the dance floor, but when we got to the reception site it was there. I asked my WC (Denys) and she told me that it was included. From what I gathered this is the standard dance floor now. We were never charged for it, either. Hope this helps!

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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?
