Trying hard to not freak out.


Aww JHarris,


It's almost your time! I wish you the best of luck and may your wedding be beautiful! Don't worry, it was forecast to rain every day the week of my wedding and not a drop except for 10 min shower one day.

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!



Hi Andrea!  Welcome to the Royal Playa Del Carmen forum!


Here's my best shot at your questions:


1.)  I just went with the vendors at The Royal (except photographer, we are using Ivan Luckie...he is AWESOME!!).  Our whole rationale was to limit the stress as much as possible and the hotel does a great job coordinating all the vendors they use, from what I can tell.  Having too many people to contact and set up contracts with is stressful!  Let your Royal Wedding Coordinator do that!


2.)  We have 80 people coming, so we're figuring about 40 bags.  $10 a bag already puts us at $400...so we will try our best to stick to $10 to 20.  If you have far less people you can be more extravagant, its up to you.


3.)  Yes!  We are doing a "Rehearsal Catamaran" the day before on board the Catamaya for about 75 people.  It includes a steak/lobster lunch and snorkling, as well as open bar.  SO excited!!!  The point of having a DW was to get our two families to "bond" since they live so far away, and we thought an adventure like this would be perfect.  Every wedding I've been to that had little events leading up to the big day were my most memorable, everyone really gets to know one another and party!  So fun!

I found the white bedsheet wrapped gazebo columns look too plain. I basically make turquoise organza flowers (by hand) and then glue them on 10m of ribbon. Technically, you can buy the butterflies and seashells on etsy and glue them on a ribbon.  I will wrap the 2 frontal columns at the gazebo with the garlands, and will do the ceremony there.  If I have the time, I will make more garlands...but I have to be realistic about my DIY ability! lol.  I will post the pics once I am done.

Hi Ladies,

I aint been on for a while but Ive just past the year to go mark, so im getting into wedding mode again. My invites are about to go out and im starting dress shopping at the weekend!


Ive loved catching up with the thread and seeing the great reviews/ photos, gets me so excited. Congrats to all the recent brides and good luck to the the brides coming up, looks like your next Jozee84!


Jennifer, you are definatly not a bridezilla, I would be freeking out! Why on earth would u die ur hair hot pink just before a wedding, especially when your BM. Maybe she just got carried away and when she realises it aint gonna go with the dress she may change it back, fingers crossed for ya.


This time next year will be my first day as a MRS. eeeek x

I will be taking tons of pics!!! Can't wait to see JoZee down there. We'll be in rm 292.


Can't wait!!!

    • 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?
