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

Recommended Posts

Congrats Sarah!  Can't wait to see some pics!

 

 

 

 

Has anyone arranged a rehearsal dinner at either a Gran Porto or Royal restaurant and at the dinner used projector to show a slideshow?

I've set up the dinner, but my WC said they cannot accomodate a projector for a slideshow at a restaurant.  I understand it's not that private, but I still wanted to do it there instead of at the wedding reception if possible.

 

:) Thanks!

Couple of questions regarding decorating the oceanfront gazebo...

 

Does anyone know the pricing for the different decorating options like the medallions on the posts, etc? Did anyone have Marvin do things for these?

 

 

Thanks! Denielle

I used the resort for the gazebo flowers since I did not want to pay the vendor fee for Marvin to do it.  I did use Marvin for my bouquets, bountanires (sp?), and centerpieces though.

 

Your WC can give you prices if they are not listed on the checlist.

I did not do a rehearsal dinner but I did see some semi-private events going on in the restaurants but unfortuneately your WC is right there would be no where to set it up.

My Wedding Review:

 


Hello Ladies, I was recently married at the RPDC- May 18th, 2011.

Here is my review on the resort,

 

Check in: The staff at this resort is amazing, as soon as you step into the lobby there is someone there to greet you, they immediately escort you to the Romance Concierge where you check in, get you room and go over the different restaurants etc. I am going to warn you, do not go expecting you will be upgraded because I did and we were not upgraded so I was a little disappointed with this. Our room was beautiful and big- we had the Royal Master One Bedroom Suite- Beautiful!

We travelled with a lot of people who travelled the world and some of them were not too pleased with the food, They did go into Playa to have dinner a few nights- Personally The Asiana restaurant was everyones favourite place to eat so make sure your guests check this out. We did eat at chefs table because of our room category and this too was great. Some of the guests did get sick from Maria Marie. So overall I would give the food a B-.

Drinks: Great selection, they can make you just about anything. They do not garnish the drinks like they would if you were at Margaritaville but I didn't hear anyone complain about this. I would give the drinks an  A!

 

Wedding: We had Deny's- One word: Amazing~ she is so cute! She takes care of everything, we went in with 3 suitcases full of decor and props and she said to leave it all with her!, everything for our setup was 100%!

We did pelicanos beach for our ceremony, cocktail and reception- if you are getting married on the beach do not do Central- it is not private at all and you have an audience- with pelicanos the only people you will get are off to the side on the pier- but you don't t even notice them and you don't care.

We purchased the lounge furniture which really makes for a nice set up, we used DJ Mannia and the light up dance floor- we also purchased an extra hour for the reception, If your budget allows you to do all of these, then you really should. People are still talking about our MC from DJ Mannia, he was the highlight of our wedding, really! I would hands down give our wedding A+!!!

 

With our wedding package we had included dinner on the beach the night after the wedding, again if you have this, please use it, it is so romantic and you will need a break from the group for one night so it's a great excuse to just be alone with your new husband. I loved this dinner and the set up, our server was amazing! A+

 

The only piece of advice I have is to trust the staff at the royal and your WC, they know what they are doing, as they do 3-4 a day on average. They are so professional and really go the extra mile to make your day perfect.

If you have the option to have your ceremony video taped then do this, we are kicking ourselves for not capturing a video of our day :(

My other piece of advice, don't stress!!! I was so nervous for my wedding, after it was over, I was like "well that was easy", you have no idea what your will be like the day of your wedding so try to just sit back and relax! In fact, I wish we could do it again :) 

 

Have fun, your guests will love this resort, it is top notch and the service cannot be beat!!! 

Our guests had a blast. There were friendships made between guests that did not know each other prior to this trip and they will continue to keep in touch!

Good Luck to all future brides- You won't be disappointed!!

Hi Playa wedding, you said you had a one bedroom master suite.  Which room number did you have and do you have any pics from the room with the view?  We also are getting this type of room and I don't know if I should choose a room near the quiet pool or on the side near the gazebo.

JoZee 84,

Our room assignment was suite 740, it was supposed to be an ocean view room but it was pretty far from the ocean so unless you get an oceanfront room you will be directly by the beach. We were in the new section (quite pool) area which on some days was more rowdy then the main pool- you have your own bar (El mediterriano) the restaurant and the coffee house. I really liked the location of our room, it was tucked away from everything but yet you had everything you needed right there. The resort is not big, its spread out really nice so wherever you go you are close to everything. The gazebo is closer to the ocean.

Hope this helpse

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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?
