I cannot say enough how great Michelle and the servers were at the wedding.  Family that attended our wedding are still commenting about it to us.  My aunt wanted something to drink and the bar was missing an ingredient and she told him no problem and ordered something different.  One of the servers ran, yes literally ran to find the ingredient, brought it to bar, and found her on the dance floor to give her the drink.  They were making trays of shots/drinks and walking abound with them and my one friend couldn't drink alcohol at the time so the servers would make sure to have a "virgin" version of the drink on the tray for her.  I mean the list can go on and on..

 

I LOVE hearing this! :)

 

Ana, my coordinator, just emailed me last night that we can mix and match menu items. I wrote her back asking for more clarification, so we'll see what she says.

 

Was there an upcharge to do the long tables vs the round ones?

Hello everyone I am new to this wonderful site and have a ton of questions? Would you recommend a live musician for the ceremony over an iPod? Can you mix it up and pick a few iPod songs and the violinist too? Can you choose the music the violinist plays like canon in D for my processional ?

The menus that I got sent stated "romance package" "luxury pkg" etc. but we were able to choose from any of the menus.  I bet that's what she means! ;)

 

No upcharge on the tables, it was something I wanted so I told them to do it that way.  I made a diagram and gave that to my WC.  The morning of the wedding when eating breakfast in Pelicanos I noticed that the tables were different than what gave them so went to WC office and Michelle got on her wallkie talkie, a guy came in looked at the diagram and it was changed.

Don't stress on the menu stuff....there wasn't really a salad that appealed to us so I asked if we could just have a ceasar salad (and the ceasar is amazing and beautiful..it actually stands up on your plate...lol) and that was no problem. Also we only had 15 people but I ended up with 3 entree options, most people had the beef filet which was to die for, a few people ended up with the chicken dish and said it was good and 2 people opted for a vegetarian option. They are very accommodating, so anything you think you would like to have, just ask I bet they will make it happen. We actually done the same for the breakfast that they bring you the next morning we requested different things than they offered and it was no problem.

Hey, everyone..  I wanted to get married in The Royal Playa del Carmen, but I am so torn on which month to choose!  I want to avoid hurricane season and avoid the hotter months if I could.  I know that April and May are common months to get married, but are prices much higher during these months?  Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Hi, Desiree!

 

I used to work in travel, so I hope I can give you some insight! The most expensive time to travel to Mexico is January-March because everyone wants to get out of the cold. That is probably how April and May got to be so popular! :) And then you do have the hurricane/hot season from July-October. If you don't want to do April-May, you might want to consider November-December. You might also be able to do June before it gets to be too scorching!

 

Congratulations!

Hi everyone!  Gettin' married at the Royal in April!  We are super excited!  We have been laying pretty low for a while just waiting for our guest to book their rooms but I suspect after the 1st of the year, there will be a flury of planning activity! 

 

For now I just have one question....

 

So, I keep reading how most of you brides have been able to give your guests an option of the main course for your reception menu (i.e beef, chicken, or fish).  I have been told that I CANNOT give my guests the option.  All I can do is make a few special requests on the main course for the vegetarians in my party, but other than that, everyone has to eat the same thing.  Were you guys told different or am I misunderstanding something?

 

Thanks in advance for your help...I am so addicted to this forum and everyone on here is so helpful!

Hi Ladies (and gents),

I am fairly new to this forum and figured I might as well introduce myself since I'll be a frequent flier for the next year or so. I am not actually engaged yet, but my bf and I attended a wedding at the Royal in April and it was hands down the best vacation we have ever been on! We have recently decided that we also want to get married at the Royal (date to be determined). I have been reading quite a bit of this thread and am grateful and inspired by everyones ideas and reviews. I am super OCD, so I figured getting a head start- or at least having a list of vendors and ideas- couldn't hurt. First thing we need to nail down is a date. We would prefer a wedding in February or March since we live in Michigan and it would be a nice break from the snow for our guests. However, I know that this is one of the busiest times of year to travel to Mexico. So I may reconsider December. Then again, traveling around the holidays can get pricey as well. Does anyone who has had their wedding in December have any advice? Was it too cold at night to have the reception on the beach & how was the weather overall? Also, I am wondering when the earliest is that you can book a wedding at the Royal. I know that flights are unavailable more than a year in advance so it is difficult to estimate pricing at this time as well. Thanks in advance for everyones help!- and everything that has been posted thus far! Since I have attended the Royal PDC for a wedding, I am more than willing to share any information to the best of my ability- but it looks like this forum has got you covered!

    • 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?
