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

Recommended Posts

I have to look into this whole $300 thing since my four month mark will be Jan 1.

 

I changed my ceremony time to 5:30 from 6:00 last week in order to have a full hour for cocktail/appet instead of 1/2 hour.  They were going to charge me for the whole hour regardless, typical Royal haha, and I wanted a 4 hour reception.  Anyways, they made me sign a new contract to change the time, I fought them and they said it was neccessary.  I bet the new contract has the new payment plan and my orginal one didn't.  Hmmmmmm....

Wow! That is pretty sneaky of them to throw that $300 in. It's not like they're losing any money here. They already upped the outside vendor fee. I must have signed my contract before they put that into place during the summer.

 

That's just ridiculous.

 

Is anyone else taking pics before the ceremony? My ceremony starts at 6pm and I thought it would be a good idea to take advantage of some sunlight before we do our spiritual ceremony.

 

If anyone needs a laugh for the day I have a short story: One of my husband's friends is officiating our ceremony. Now remember the scene from Couples Retreat where Salvadori the Yoga instructors comes out of the water and says he plans to put something more comfortable and it's another speedo. We meet up with him and another guy friend for drinks. Apparently this part in the movie is their inspiration. They begin telling me how they plan to start the ceremony. Scott our officiant will swim and rise up from the water flexing his pecs, he will then change into another speedo that says encourage me on the front and Boom! on the back. And apparently all of them will change into speedoes that say the same thing and they will all talk like him! Imagine the horrified look on my face as I hear this!!

 

As much as they are joking - I wouldn't put it past them. So if any of you ladies see this the week of June 27, 2011 - yes it is my wedding. Feel free to take pics!! :-)

The resort was actually not very big, not too small. I was able to walk from my room (right by the gazebo on far side of resort) to the lobby (central location) in 5 min and then lobby to wedding center in another 5 (opposite my room). The wedding center is directly across the street from the main entrance to the Gran Porto

So I am having my wedding reception on the beach behind the gazebo and decided to try to change it to the gazebo terrace since our wedding group is smaller than originally planned... however they told me that another wedding ceremony is going on during my reception time so I couldn't switch... now if my reception is on the beach in front of the gazebo, is my party going to interfere with their ceremony or vice versa?? How far away is the reception setup on the beach from the gazebo? In pics it looks like it is right behind it.. hmmm..

Also, I can't remember if I read somewhere about good room suggestions on this forum or somewhere else... but for those brides who got married here, do you have any suggestions about what room numbers are best or what area of the resort is the most convenient to stay in? I am in an Oceanview room so I know there are a ton to choose from? Is it loud by the pool all day/night?

The resort is definitly not big, I'm guessing but I would think The Royal and Gran Porto would be considered small compared to other resorts.  When we went in April we noticed wedding groups meeting up and hanging out by the pool or on the beach.

It is right behind it. I would talk to them about this for sure.  I'm sure the people having their ceremony wouldn't appreciate it etiher. 

 

When we initially contacted The Royal that was one of our main concerns knowing that they did multiple weddings a day and they ensured me a sitiuation like the one you mentioned wouldn't happen. 

 

Now maybe the ceremony that is going one is only the couple and no guests etc so it won't interfere with your reception.  We say a couple "couples" getting married by themselves or renewing vows when we were there.

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
