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

Recommended Posts

WHOA Kshows!  Your pics are AMAZING!!!!  You look gorgeous!  I think those pics just gave me the inspiration and get off my booty and back on my workout routine! 

Too many excuses...in a new position at my company and have been working late, but it's time to get back on the wagon!  I live in Houston also, so if I feel confident enough I might look into your photographer!

Can't wait to see your planning thread and wedding pics.  Have a wonderful wedding on Saturday!!!  :)

 

 

Question for all the ladies:  Where did you go shopping for you and your fiance's wedding bands and how long did it take to get them in?  We need to start looking and are not sure where to go.  He got my engagement ring/diamond from a wholesaler and we probably won't go there for the bands.

 

Gracias! cheesy.gif

Hi ladies!! I hope everyone is doing well!  I've got a question for the past Royal brides.. I know that most, if not all, of the wedding packages include a 'Complimentary upgrade to the next suite category if available'.   Has anyone been able to upgrade upon arrival?  I'm trying to decide whether or not to go down a level (we're currently Oceanfront) in hopes that we might be able to upgrade for free and have more money to spend on the wedding. 

 

And Heidi, I will miss your wedding by one day!  We will arrive at the Royal on the 23rd.  Yay for a fellow Texan being there around the same time though :)

Thursday morning at 6:30 AM and we are on our way........!!!!!!!!!  I can feel the sunshine already!

We are so excited! I can't believe how quickly the time passed and that our big day is next weekend! We just have to put together our programs and I'm still waiting to hear from the tailor on my dress. My FI is running around like a mad man since he has just begun all the things on his "to do" list, but at least he's got a few more days. 

 

And after all this snow and ice and cold weather in Dallas, we can't wait to hit the sunny beaches of Playa! I've never been to Playa del Carmen before, let alone, The ROYAL, but after reading all these posts and everyone's reviews and feedback, I can honestly say I have never been more excited for anything! 

 

ONLY 8 MORE DAYS! :)

Heidi - Don't forget the amazing weather we've been experiencing in Houston as well. Nothing like Dallas but still crazy for us. Depending on how much you have budgeted, we got his ring at Tiffany's and mine at the now defunct Bailey Biddles and Banks. Although I've been told if I'm nice I may get a band from Tiffany's. msnwink.gif

 

I definitely agree with using a wholesaler for your ring - best quality and pricing. One of my friends used a wholesaler for all their rings and they look amazing. PM me and I'll give you his information. Her rings look amazing and he can do any inspired rings as well.

Welcome Kate and new brides to be!!! June is a great month and as you can tell, a very popular one. Two months after we set our date with The Royal - I sent out our save the dates. We used www.paperdivas.com magnet save the dates and they have fun tropical themes. I'm a little behind on sending out my invites but finalizing them this weekend. My belief is that if you inform everyone ahead of time and get the save the dates and website up early - no one should be blind-sided or surprised about a destination wedding. They're getting their invites at the end of this month - so still plenty of time before June.

Congrats and have fun planning!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
