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

Recommended Posts


I'm just catching up from being gone all weekend. I did the same thing, I'm not doing a trial. Maybe I'll regret it but you never know.....I'm just sending/taking pictures! :) I hope it works!

I'm going to email mine as well and I'll relay the information to you! My reception starts at 6:30 (mid-October) and yep, on the beach. :)

If I end up posting twice I apologize. I thought I replied then none of my posts showed up, so sorry in advance if I repeat myself.

You're welcome!! I've been scouring tons of threads and websites too. All those areas are beautiful. I really like the setup of Xel-Ha. There is an entrance fee to the park. I tried to find on the INAH website the permits but I couldn't find anything. I would love to take pics at Tulum. I've recognized the Gran Cenote in a few photos. Can't wait!!


I think I found the prices somewhere, I'll have to look them up but I was thinking $99 for a full day. I could be wrong though! Let me dig through my 'wedding folder'

   Yes there is a web cam, it is $350. You have to request it through your WC, the only thing is it is difficult to see because it is pretty far away.

Yay thanks Jess! I had forgotten about that!

For our at home reception I ordered a topper for my FH- It is his college sport team themed. The bride is dragging the groom and he has the team helmet on his lap, it's pretty funny. But I don't want to bring that to Mexico it was pretty pricey to risk anything happening to...


I'm bringing a cake topper, but nothing too fancy. I love your at-home cake topper! :)

Has anyone else used Norma from MAC in Cancun?
 


Yes I booked Fernando and so far he has been great (communication wise). I really am comfortable with him! PM me if you have questions! :)

My WC said I can have him as a guest and he'll be able to come 3 hours before the wedding.  He is not staying over night at either hotel.  I'll have to pay for him and the other photographer as a non guest (non real resort guest)  at the wedding for our private reception.  Thats how I was told to do it with out getting hit with the $350 fee.  Hope this helps.

Is anyone making their photographer a guest for the wedding? I am thinking about doing this, but I am nervous that I could still get hit with the $350 fee. Not sure how they would handle that if I just listed him as a guest. I just think it is unfair to have to pay such a high fee when their photographer is not good. I don't mind making him a guest, just not sure if I will get caught for it...haha.

Does Fernando sometimes take a while to respond? I sent the deposit 3.5 weeks ago and he said he was going to confirm with his sister and get back to me, but so far nothing. I emailed him again last week and I still haven't heard back from him, so I emailed him again today.

it took him a little while to confirm my deposit as well. i just kept sending polite reminder emails so he wouldn't forget until I got a confirmation from him. good luck!

He is pricey but I think it will be worth it, as my hair/makeup is something I don't want to have to worry about. You can PM me if you need anything, I'm more than happy to help!

 

 

 

Thanks!! I will. Just waiting to actually hear back from him. lol....

Risa-

 

I am having my photographer stay at Gran Porto the nite before & night of the wedding (at the Royal).  And he is a guest at the wedding (he has to eat too!).  This avoids the $350 vendor fee.  I double checked on this.  I was told that if he is not staying at one of the hotels then I must pay the vendor fee.  The way it worked out for me, I'd rather pay to have him stay than pay for nothing (the vendor fee).  I am sure you could have him stay 1 night only, but I decided to do 2 nites.

 

The $100 vendor fee is the old rate.  All outside vendors are now $350 each!
