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

Recommended Posts

used to be the rule was you could have a choice of two entrees if you found a way to distinguish it to the waitstaff (i.e. different colored stickers on the seating cards). I think they will let you. I was planning to give guests a choice between the beef filet (tournado?) and the red snapper. good luck!

Hi Maroon13,

 

I just got back from my wedding at the Royal - AMAZING!  - I had it in the gazebo which was perfect. The beach is NOT at all private, it's really windy (most days) You will have a lot of people walking through at all times.  I had a few people walk through before and after the ceremony. one harry guy in a speedo which was gross People stayed away for the most part during the ceremony.  But the gazebo has a beautiful walkway, gorgeous scenary, the beach is behind it and the wind is blocked more than on the beach.   Hands down - Gazebo. 

 

Be sure to have a rehearsal, ask your wedding coordinator to be there and ensure she blocks off sections of the walkway. before, during and after. 

 

have fun and be sure to relax :)

I am getting a bit worried. It seems as though everyone does not like the beach option as a ceremony option. We picked mexico because we wanted to get married on the beach. I am requesting the beach behind the gazebo for the reception. Hopefully I will get it. But everyone on here has us really worried that we made a bad choice for the ceremony and I know the Gazebo is not available because there is a wedding 1 hour before us there. Any one out there get married on the beach at the royal? We also choose the beach for the reception..I know you can only have 5 hours but that will be enough for alot of our guest..most of us young people will just go out after if we need to!

Also anyone here use the Royal's lounge furniture? Was it nice?

Thanks!!

Hi Steph,

 

I asked about a rehersal and they said they don't do that.  How did you get them to block time?  I want to tell the wedding party in advance what time to do the rehersal because everyone is coming in on different days and some of them are staying outside the resort.  Any advice is welcomed!

 

Thanks,

Erin

Hi, Ladies! Living Social currently has a deal - $10 for $50 worth of printouts (invitations, business cards, postcards, etc.) at VistaPrint! Since there is a limit of one per customer, my fiancé and I each bought one...$20 for $100 worth of prints we plan on using for OOT guides to include in our OOT bags, menus, and programs. For many of you DIY-ers, may not be a bad idea for what we are doing or even STDs or invitations?

Keep asking your wedding coordinator.  My original one wasn't that responsive, but when she left on maternity leave, I was given Ana and she's been pretty great.  She responds timely and tries to answer all my questions.

 

If you want to give your quests an option, keep requesting the Royal to make that happen - they can do it!

 

 

 

 

 

I had 2 entrees and used punches from Michael's to distinguish b/t the two: 100_1814.JPG

I wouldn't have traded my beach reception for the world. It's such a one of a kind experience to dance and have fun with family and friends under the stars and near the waves :)

Aww girly, if you want a beach ceremony, do it!! The ladies who had ceremonies on the beach (friends on this forum) all had beautiful ceremonies. Granted, people are going to swarm your wedding, but you will be completely oblivious and only notice your FI :). Some bone-headed people will also walk behind your ceremony (b/t you and water), but any photographer worth his/her salt will be able to photoshop them out and the pictures will come out gorgeous :)

 

I liked The Royal's lounge furniture and did use it.

Hi Kate,

 

I am getting married in June at the Royal also! Its only 5 months away and I just have my dress and the bridesmaids dresses picked out. =( I feel a bit behind but we are hitting it hard now that the holidays are over! We are also doing our ceremony at 5 at the gazebo and the reception on the beach. We were also worried about lighting but based on pictures from other brides, it looks like the lighting will be perfect! We are going for a DJ and the light up dance floor which I seem to help a lot.

 

Have you decided on your photographer yet?

Also, are you going through the resort for your flowers?

 

Happy planning to you Kate and all the other future brides to be out there!

 

All stress aside, I am trying to take every second in!

 

~Jess

    • 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?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
