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

Recommended Posts

Chicago Bride -

 

I got my dress in June and they told me it would take 6 months to get in - so Dec 2010 I should get my dress. Then alterations for my dress. I have also have a bridal session scheduled in April/May - so I need my dress to be ready by then. I would definitely start finding a dress now. If you buy off the rack then you can take it with you immediately but if your dress has to be made - you're looking at some serious fees they love to tack on. If you fit the sample and there's nothing wrong with it - you can ask if they'll sell you the sample if you're in a pinch.

1.  is a beach reception better at the Royal or Gran Porto?

2.  is it a pain to stay at the Royal when all of our guests are staying at the Gran Porto?  We need to stay at the Royal in order to have the wedding there but im concerned about not being able to spend time with our guests and being able to have my bridal party stay with me the night before the wedding...

3.  how expensive the the Glass Bar restaurant for a private welcome party?  any other suggestions for places to hold a welcome party?

 

any suggestions/info would be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks so much!

-Cat

Yes, our wedding date is June 15th. Good to know about the concert.  I didn't send out invitations yet but i'll let my bridal party and immediate family members know about the rooms.  Hmmm, I wonder what kind of concert it will be? I hope their music doesn't interfere with yours  sad.gif

Here is a picture of what I think we're doing for center pieces.  I know their tall and the people at the tables won't really be able to see across to the person sitting opposite them but what ever they looks cool! haha.  9505 $50 Center.jpg My girls are 9348 $45 Bridesmaids.jpg  and mine is 9256 $40 Bride.jpg

Marvin said they won't have to be put together so I can jsut have a brides maid put them on the tables for me.  YES! save $350 thank you!  Still worried about make up and hair though, I actually went with my sister for her wedding trial and again hated it! Maybe I'm just too picky. 

 

JoZee - Are you having a beach reception or indoor reception? If you see a girl in traditional dress walking by - that'll be me! So cool to have a buddy!!  =) I decided to do tea ceremony during rehearsal dinner. Everyone will arrive on Wednesday so it'll be a fun thing for them to experience. I didn't want to load our wedding day with activities. Been there and done that at another wedding and it was exhausting.

 

Is anyone else thinking of doing like a group dance with the bridal party? I was thinking an 80s montage or maybe a simple salsa dance. =)

YAY!!!!



Hi Jenny! I am new to the forum but I have already done tons of research. I wanted to have my rehersal dinner at El Bistro at La Tortuga Hotel also.  How did you get in contact with them? I sent an email, but no replies as of yet. Also, do you know how far the restaruant is from the resort? I am have some nervous nellies with me with everything that is going down in Mexico right now. Can you share any pricing info? Thanks so much and sorry for all the questions.cheers.gif

Hi Diahr welcome!

 

What e-mail did you try to contact them at? try this one elbistro@hotellatortuga.com, they got right back to me. It is only a block way. You literally walk out of the resort up the street onto 5th take a left, and its the first street on your right. You walk down and its right there on your left.

 

 

Here is the pricing: I love the menu for the cocktail food :) I wanted so bad to have our reharesal here but the terrace I think comfortably would fit 50 max sad.gif we have 85

 

Like I said we go here every year and love it so much! even as a recommendation for guests to eat off the resort I would definetly recommend EL Bistro which is their restaurant. It is attached right to the hotel.

    • 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?
