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

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies you lit a fire under my A** regarding dress shopping!!!  Thank you for the advice. I just made an appt for the 23 to try on Maggie Sotterro dresses.  I went to Davids a couple months ago and no luck, I hope this goes better!

 

Jess you are awesome, thank you so much for the La Tortuga info!  Runningbride good luck, and ummmm I may need to ask you about the Brazilian...I'm too chicken, hehe.smile27.gif

Hi Ladies! I have been trying to catch up on this thread before I started posting stuff, but its nearly impossible! lol! So much great information so far though =)

 

Anyway, wanted to introduce myself before I started popping in with questions and everyone's like "who's this girl?" lol.

 

My FI and I are booked for June 3rd at the RPDC and are still trying to work out a lot of the details, but just wanted to say Hi! and thanks for all of the info so far!

 

The only question I have that I would like to know, but haven't found in this thread yet is....

For those of you that have had/will have your welcome social at the Gran (since I anticipate a lot of our guests will be staying there), do you just show up to the lobby bar? Or do you have to have a reservation? Do they charge?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey Maritza...welcome3.gif

 

I am getting married at the RPDC on June 12th! There are quite a few of us who are all June brides here :)

 

As far as organizing a welcome social, I think it depends on how formal you want it. If you want to have dinner and drinks you may need to make a reservation. If you are just having everyone meet down there for a few drinks I doubt it would be a huge problem...unless the resort is at a high capacity that night. I wanted to do something like that, but I am not sure exactly when a majority of my guests are going to be coming in yet.

 

All the ladies on here are so helpful and there is so much useful information on here! This board has been so amazing for my planning!!

 

Let us know if you have any other questions and happy planning!

PS I am getting a brazilian done the day before I leave, I was told to take ibprofin before smile43.gif

 

Hi Jes!  Definitely take a couple advils about 1/2 hour  - hour before.  I've done with and without and with is definitely a little less painful.  I'd also suggest to go at least 2 days before you leave...because sometimes redness can last a little longer than anticipated.

Welcome Maritza!!! Love seeing another June bride!! June 16th for me!!  cheer2.gif

 

I agree - it depends on how formal you want your event. If you don't mind sharing space with others - no need to make reservations. But if you plan on having a large group - it might be a good idea to make reservations. The fee charges are the same as for the reception from the wedding packages. if you look at the Luxury package - it should state the fees for drinks and food.

 

At least that's what my WC told me. You will find that it all depends on what your WC says. They all give different answers. rolleyes.gif

 

So with the flowers I was told if I picked them up myself - no vendor fees. If my vendor comes and sets it up - I will be hit with a fee. Sweet!! Saving myself $350 on that one!!

For the Brazilian - if it's your first - take 2-3 advils 30mins before your appointment. Definitely have it done couple of days ahead of time.

 

If you keep it up, you'll find the pain gets less and less.

 

KEY: Do not schedule it near your time of the month!! You will be super sensitive and no amount of advil will make it feel better. Unless you don't have the option, just remember to inhale deeply and exhale.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
