Also, just a heads up my WC said The Royal couldn't put the centerpieces on the tables for me without charging the vendor fee.  I freaked out at first but my aunt and a couple friends put them on the tables for me and the bell- boys from the hotel brought them carts and wheeled it out to the beach for them.

Hi Ladies,

I have enjoyed seeing everyones pictures on here and reading about your weddings.  I have a couple of questions that I am sure some of you could answer.

 

1.  When would you recommend making contact with the local florist in Playa for a March wedding?  Is there just Marvin or are there others?  What is their contact information?

2.  What is the average amount spent on the OOT bags....my fiance and I were thinking about $50.  Too low or too high?

3.  Has anyone done a catamaran excursion?  We will probably have about 70 guests and would like to hear your opinions on them if you have done it.

 

I am sure I will think of so many more but I just love this website and all the ladies that have shared their planning tips and ideas!

 

Congratulations to all you summer brides, my fiance and I saw about 3 take place there in late may and they were all gorgeous!

Andrea

Thanks for the TA advice, ladies! Do any of you know a good travel agent who is familiar with the resort? Also, if I go with a TA then do I still have the option to book through the resort? I want my guests to be able to book through a TA, through the resort, or on their own online.

Thanks Ladies, I heard back from him yesterday and he said everything was good to go.

 

Nikki- I got my girls, starfish necklaces and a hair pin (up to them if they want it in their hair or not)  pashminas and personalized photo albums.

Hey Ladies!

 

I love this website and all of the planning details, OOT bag ideas, pictures etc.  All of your ideas and thoughts are greatly appreciated.  I have a couple questions if anyone would like to answer them.....

 

~ How soon would you recommend contacting the florist in Playa?  What is Marvins contact information?

~ How much on average would you spend on each OOT bag?

~ Is it silly to have ushers for 70 guests?

 

Looking forward to all your ideas!

Andrea

Oh no!  I'm so sorry about the potential storm.  Yikes!  Hope it doesn't occur on your big day.  If it does, I got this great advice from my wedding photographer Ivan Luckie:

 

He said, whatever you do, it's YOUR wedding day!!!  Lots of brides stress about the clouds/rain etc. and then they end up looking sad in their photos.  You don't want bad weather AND bad photos!  So whatever will be, will be, just relax and smile through it! Make sure your fiance knows its his JOB to make you laugh and smile for photos and distract you from worrying about the weather (they love jobs ;) Also, he said that a lot of the rainy day/storm photos are his favorites because of the crazy cloud formations in the background. Plus the hotel is GORGEOUS inside for photos as well.  So, I hope, hope, hope and pray it doesn't rain on your big day (or mine!) but if it does, smile, smile, SMILE through it all.

JHarris,

Don't worry too much, I ve seen brides at RPDC on rainy days during my site inspection, they all looked great and had great times with indoor reception.  For things that you don't have control over, you should just chill and relax.  Of course, we can all pray and send u positive vibes~~~~

Andrea,

I spent like $10 per each OOT bags..initially I was thinking of buying those hand sanitazers, but then I saw RPDC already offers them to its guests...they also offers chips, boxes of juices in their mini bar, they also have bath salts and tea lite candles for the jaccuzi in the room

...as for medications, I just send a list of things to pack to my guests.  As some people have allergies to certain meds..and I don't want to be responsible for that.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
