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

Recommended Posts

Lisa - I am doing a half up half down.  Thankfully my hair is pretty straight and I'm getting married in February, so I am not too concerned with the humidity making it a frizzy mess.  I also think it greatly depends on the dress you choose.  I think the ones with sleeves or that go higher up look best with an up-do, versus a strapless or sweetheart that can support the hair being down! (You don't want to cover up that beautiful dress!!)

 

ChicagoBride - I got a MAGGIE!!  She is an amazing designer, and I absolutley love the fit.  Personally I like the first one better but where are you getting married?  On the beach or at the Gazeebo?  I think #1 fits perfectly for Gazeebo and #2 for on the Beach =)  They are both beautiful dresses!  Great picks!

I am, it's really frustrating! I already did one trial for an up style but didn't like the way it came out. The hairstyle looked really pretty, but I don't think it was really me. Now I'm leaning towards half up half down but have yet to find one that I like.

The only reason why I didn't pull the trigger and buy it is because I've been eyeing Maggie RD1044, and the store didn't have a sample.  They are going to try and get one for me, and will call me this week.  Has anyone tried this dress on? or has seen it in person?

I'm a maggie bride, too! She makes awesome dresses. I think they are both beautiful, but I'm always partial to corset/lace up and the way it pulls stuff in lol (at least for me hehe)

My hair is curly, too and I was thinking the same.

Both are absolutely gorgeous!! Great styles. I like the 2nd one for a romantic beach look. I love the first one for the regal look - either one you pick will look amazing on you!!

 

I agree about the corset and lace-ups! Nothing wrong with a little extra help! =)

I 've seen both recently.  I went dress-shopping with my bbf, as she is getting married too and wants smth flowy.  She is a size 14, and tried the second dress on first.  It was a disaster.  It is a very nice dress for a bride with a tiny frame and no belly, not very great if the bride has 2 spare tires like my bbf. 

She also try the first one on, and the fabric hides her tires better and gave her a better shape, but she didn't fell wow in it neither.

Chicago bride lovveeee the dresses!!!!! both are them of beautiful let us know how it goes trying on the second one

 

Lisa - You have no idea how much I have agonized over the hair thing. If my hair doesn't look good I won't feel good lol so I went for a hair trial at my at home salon to see. We tried half up and I felt like I was going to prom, than we did pony tail to the side and I don't know it still did not feel quite right, finally we tried a low side bun with a side sweep in the front with a large orchid and it was perfect :) I am glad I did the trial so now I don't have to worry and can show fernando exactly what to do

 Jess, I did the same thing tonight lol (only on my own). I did half up do and showed Wayne and he said he liked it. Then I did a low chignon with my bangs swept to side (or tried to) with a fake orchid from Garden Ridge lol and he said "Yes! that's the one" .... glad to hear we are on the same page.

Oh btw, I ordered the luxury flower from the royal for my hair ( i assume it's an orchid), but I wonder if a fake one would be better? I wonder how long they look fresh....

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
