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

Recommended Posts

hey ladies, as i search around for shoes, i had a question for those who had / having a beach ceremony, do you walk up to the sand take your shoes off before you walk into the sand or are you walking all the way with no shoes or going in with your shoes?

 

i'll need shoes for the reception because it's in the garden but not sure if i need another for the ceremony/

 

also, where do you start to walk out from? i've been searching the hundreds of pages in the thread but hard to sort through and couldn't really see what people how they reached the sand area.

 

thanks!

Rosieposie,

 

Due to erosion the beach is not that wide, the resort has bushes/trees as fence with only a few entry point to the beach.  Generally speaking the beach wedding area is in between the pool and the pier, so the bride will come out of her room, passes by the pool area, and walk to the beach. 20 steps in the sand are my estimate.  If your shoes are wedge heels, I think you will be fine.  If not, you can get a pair of platform flipflops

Thanks to all of you who recommended Marvin at Maya Diseno Flora. He's awesome just like everyone said. So accomodating and goes out his way to create things you like. I sent him a picture of the bouquet I ordered from the Royal, told him my colors and my favorite flowers, and within a couple hours he had sent me several pictures of different bouquets he had made up for me to choose from. AWESOME! I highly recommend him for any soon-to-be brides looking at flowers. 

 

To any recent ROYAL PDC brides - would you be willing to share your pictures from the big day? I'd love to browse through them. We are getting down to the big day and I am looking for ideas and inspiration as we focus on the details now. 

 

We opted for a DJ for our reception, and I remember reading on this forum that it seems most the time DJ Ivan is the DJ you get. Is he good? Did you provide a "do not play" and "must play" list? What about genre recommendations? I know our group and they will pretty much want a lot of classic rock, country, and a little bit of hip hop. Is there a way to tell this to the DJ before hand? 

 

Less than one month to go!

I also decided to go with a DJ and booked Ivan through the resort.  I also confirmed my flowers with Marvin, I'm so excited!

 

Randi, did you have to arrange that time with Ivan before you left?  I have not talked with him directly...did he contact you beforehand or did you contact him?  Do you or anyone else have his contact info?

 

Thanks!  Gorgeous pics ladies!!

the white on the gazebo i believe was standard.  it was up a lot of the time when there wasn't even a wedding going on. 

 

and i did arrange the meeting before we left.  there was a miscommunication and he had a few hours later then i had....so i was waiting in the lobby and eventually went to the wedding office and talked to someone and they got it figured out and he arrived shortly. and yea, i just used that email :)

thanks  =)

i think i'll start looking for nice wedge-platform flip flops, haven't found my shoes yet, but i know they won't be a wedge heel....lol, i was thinking it'll look so funny if i kicked them off before i went into the sand part.
