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

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!

Diahr - It is sad to hear that your FI's parents are making excuses.  Whether they are there or not, you will have an amazing time.  It may not seem like it now, but it really will work out in the end.  I have very little of my family attending and I'm ok with it.  At first I was sad, but then came to the realization that we chose this path and are happy with our choice.  We wouldn't have it any other way!

 

Prettypigpig and Jesmcan - Thanks for the info on pesos! 

 

FutureMrsYak and OribitingBklyn - See you guys this weekend!

 

msglave - I hear ya on losing your mind!  Nobody told me that the last month would get crazy.  I wish I had started on somethings sooner, but oh well.  If its not done now, its not getting done.

 

I leave at 6AM tomorrow!  I'll post tons of pics when we get back.

Hi Ladies!!!!

I just got in an hour ago and it was AMAZING!!!!  Holy Canolli!! lol

 

I have no idea where to start....I will be more coherent tomorrow and write my review, but for now off top of my head....

 

The Royal rox so much! I can't tell you how awesome it is. Even my rich bro and his partner (who go to really top notch places), raved about it. My room was amazing- it was a junior oceanfront and Jill had previously asked that I be near the gazebo so I wouldnt have to walk far. It was perfect! I was in room 534 which was a corner suite on the 5th floor just above gazebo. The elevator was right near the room and when I exited, I was right there in the walkway before turning to walk down the aisle. An added bonus to this room is that it has a side window as well next to the jacuzzi which takes up most of the wall

It was scheduled to rain during the whole week, but only rained 2x in the ten days i was there. It started sprinkling at 9:45 the wedding night and our reception ended at 9:30- what luck!

Hey, anyone out there feeling totally overwhelmed at planning the details of a wedding in Mexico?  We are definitely on a budget...we opted for the free wedding, as the cost of the master suite was actually less than paying for the wedding package.  We wanted to upgrade the flowers, cake, etc., anyway, so this seemed like the best way to go. 

 

Our wedding is May 21, 4pm in the gazebo.  We have no idea how many people will be able to come, but we think it will be very small.  Was anyone able to see the final guest list before planning the reception?  I'd like to do a private reception, but only if it is relatively small group...this can get really expensive with a lot of people!  Has anyone had experience with a small, semi-private reception?

 

Our wedding planner's name is Elvy.  Has anyone worked with her before?  She seems super helpful so far, and very responsive. 

 

I'm also interested in what people have done for hair/makeup?  How's the salon at the resort?  Should I book an appointment with someone else?  How about the photographer?  We definitely want to choose our own photographer, but the contract says there is a $350 fee for outside vendors.  Is there a way around this, if I want to use a local photographer?  Would I have to pay this fee if I wanted to hire my own mariachi band?  I've heard of other people doing this.

 

I am so excited, but a little nervous about what I need to do to prepare.  If anyone can share stories about how they are getting ready for the big day at the Royal, I would be grateful :)

 

Thanks,
Jen

MsGlave - Please make sure you try to take time to breath. I too have a very crazy/stressful job. Try and focus on the fun wedding stuff, not the awful work stuff if you can.  I brought my personal laptop with me today so I could get some wedding stuff done here.  The work will be there when you back so cheat when you can. I am cheating by being on the fourm right now! teehee! 

 

We are all so excitied for your big day.  Please keep us posted. So glad to here the fittings and party went well!  Bachelorette party #2 - so jealous! For the centerpieces can you get Marvin to do something for you? His prices are very reasonable compared to the Royal's and he's been very responsive to me. His info is below:

Jenny, I hope you had a wonderful wedding day! Can't wait to here all about it!

When does Lisa come back

 

diahr, I hope everything works out.

 

We are trying to get our centerpieces together. I remember one of the November brides (maybe runningbride?) found a floral store in the area. Does anyone know the name, website, phone, contact info or whatever for the store?

 

Also brides who have been to the Walmart, what has your experiences been like? We are seriously considering purchasing glass vases there but the FI is like, what if the stock is limited, etc./ etc.

 

I need some time off work! Screaming AHHHHHHH!!!!!



 

Lisa - I am so happy that everything turned out great!!! I think I speak for everyone when I say you are one of the sweetest people on here! You deserved a great wedding.  Can't wait for your review.  Again, I am so happy that everything worked out for you!! Can't wait to tell my FI.  He calls you ladies - "your girls on the blog."

For the bride who have already gotten married and used Marvin, I have a question.  First did the deliver the flowers to the hotel outside and you just had someone pick them up for you?  Did he charge a delivery fee?  Also, I know to avoid the vendor fee you are supposed to put them on the tables yourself....but when did you have someone do this?  How far in advance are the tables set up?  Any recommendations would be greatly apprecaited! 

 

diahr - that is great news!  I am sorry to hear about your family dilema you are in.  I didn't have anything that extreme, but I do have a future sister in law, that we gave $1,000 to so that she could come, just bitch and bitch and bitch about EVERYTHING and how expensive everything is.  When it is all said and done we will have paid more for her to come than she did.  It's frustrating...but at the end of the day, it's your day, and all that matter and you and him.

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
