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

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies! I haven't posted in a while. My wedding is in April and we are having our wedding and reception at Xcaret. BUT we are all going to be staying at the Royal. We are having a happy hour with appetizers at the Royal Thursday night. Have any of you tasted the appetizers there? Do you have any recommendations or things to avoid? Just needed some input.

Hi Ladies and Groom!

 

Wow! So I just spent the last 2 days reading all 68 pages of this thread and I must say, holy cow! That took forever! But now I really feel like I know each one of you, which is very cool! So I feel like I should share a little about me!

 

I was referred to this site by Jentwo. I met Jen on trip advisor and she has just been the best thing! (shout out to Jen if you are still checking this site!)My fiance Michael and I are planning to get married at The Royal, we are just at the beginning stages of planning, (I'm sure you all remember how that felt!) where I am overly excited and can't possibly get enough information and dying to start planning! We are hoping for a June 2010 date but have not heard back from the WC yet. (No surrpise there). We are working with a travel agent and she is going to try and get some communication going.

 

So many of my questions were answered from reading and from Jen but I am still shady on the No outside vendors policy. I have read how some of you gals got them to allow it with a $100 per person fee. I am willing to pay that but will they allow it still? If not it may be a deal breaker for me, photos are the most important thing for me!

 

Also, I was planning to marry legal/civil ceremony but it sounds as if you can't do the sand ceremony or write your own vows with that?

 

And after reading this site I don't know where to have my ceremony now! I was going to to the beach- no hesitation there- unitl I read on here about the privacy issues! No I am so confused! What's a girl to do! I am from Iowa, a beach wedding means getting your feet in the sand and out of the snow!

 

I will stop rambling now, but I just wanted to introduce myself and hope that any brides left on this thread will help me out along the way too!

 

By the way, if anyone has the attachments that Zulma sent, for cakes, flowers, ceremony site pictures or anything else I would be forever grateful if you could email them to me, I can PM whomever has that stuff with my email addy. I do have the "funever" photo stuff (which I hope I won't need).

 

Ok, I just read back over that, sorry it was so darn long!

 

Stephanie

From what I understand, if you had a contract initiated with the hotel/WC before the "Big Rules" came out...then the $100 fee applied to you...now...AFTER the big rules...I'm not so sure. All you can do is talk to your WC, when she finally gets a hold of you, and ask the question.

You CAN partake in these things...only with a Civil ceremony, my understanding is that you can only do them AFTER the minister/judge leaves. You would have to have a friend or family member introduce them and they could do any readings for you, etc. The minister just cannot be involved.

You can PM me if you'd like. I can forward you lots of stuff! haha. Just let me know!

Good luck, and remember to just be patient with the WCs, and...have fun! cheesy.gif

Congratulations!

As of January 12, 2009, Zulma just said any outside videographers and photographers require YOU to pay $100 for each of them. Everything else seemed to be ok. I am bringing in a salsa band with 8+ people and she said that was cool.

 

These were my questions to Zulma

 

1. In the FAQ I cannot find the policy for an outside photographer. I was thinking of hiring my own photographer

 

I want to know the cost of bringing them in.

 

2. I don't see an option for a salsa band in your wedding checklist. I just see mariachi trio, DJ, saxophonist, violinist, guitar player, NO salsa band. How much to bring Balance La Banda in to the resort?

 

Zulma's response

 

"Hello, the cost for an out side photographer is 100usd, the external music doesn’t have fee for bringing theme to the hotel."

Shay- Thanks so much, I will send you a message! I am just so anxious to see everything!

 

Anyone know what time the sun sets in June in Mexico? Trying to figure out when to do my ceremony. I know from reading on here that it is like 5:30 in November, but surely June would be much later?

 

Also, I am going to do my own STD cards and was wondering if anyone could recomend any suggestions for websites or programs that would be cheap?!

 

Thanks!

I would suggest to email her and ask the same questions and save her responses as a record. That's what some of the girls here told me. Good luck! I still haven't got back confirmation if my down payment was ok or not sad.gif

    • 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?  
    • 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.
