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

1. Are we able to transfer our hair/make-up and face saver treatment that comes in the Luxury package to other people (ex: MIL or father)?

2. Can we move the wedding photographer that comes in the package to the rehearsal dinner?

3. Has anyone opted to do the buffet (for 50+ people)? How was this? Which one did you choose?

4. Has anyone walked over to the MAC store to get your make-up done? 

5. Are the under-table lights for the beach receptions only? Or can we get them if our reception is in the central garden?

 

Thanks for your help ladies!

 

Sorry, I don't really know the answers to the questions... but something to keep in mind, sometimes you are better off piecing together what you want based on a smaller/cheaper package. That's what I did. I made a spreadsheet to calculate the costs based on each package, and for me and what I wanted/needed, the Classic Package was the cheapest.

I have been working with an onsite coordinator the entire time and know they have been really strict about changing or transferring things in the packages.  We were going to do the luxury wedding but when we took out all the things we really didn't need or want it ended up being the eternal romance package.  So I will second that you should check to see if a smaller package would work.

 

I am having the international buffet (2) at my wedding in three weeks....I will let you know how it goes.  We have a lot of football players and picky eaters coming so this seemed like the best option.

Hi Ladies, 

I am just starting the wedding planning process- we decided on the Royal but have yet to pick a date. We were looking at all of the different packages and I was just wondering what worked for everyone else. We probably will have about 40 people and want a private reception. We want it to be pretty simple- having a friend marry us, bring an ipod for the music (but will need equipment and a dance floor), bringing the bouquets, having a friend doing hair and make-up, etc. I am just wondering if it would be best to go with the Complimentary Wedding and piece together everything we want opposed to paying $4000 for the Luxury wedding. I don't want to be spending any unnecessary money that could be better used on excursions for my guests :o)

 

Thoughts?

We have 49 people for our reception and the Classic Package was what worked out best for us, financially. It gave us everything we needed, and we just upgraded to a cocktail hour and private reception. Even with the upgrading, it was still cheaper than the Luxury Package for us.

I think even if you run the numbers, you'll find that the Free wedding package costs you a lot more, mainly due to the reception fees per guest (unless you were planning on staying in the Master room anyways).

 

we have a much smaller group, so I didn't consider the Luxury wedding, but don't be afraid to whip out the Excel and crunch the numbers per package to see what fits best.

So, this is the spreadsheet I used to figure out which package would work best for me. I think I posted it before a long time ago, but I've made some updates. I also added pricing for all of the wedding extras, based upon on what my WC sent me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's somewhat self-explanatory but...

 

Insert your # of Real Guests & Non-Real Guests in C4 & C5.

 

If there are extras you want that aren't normally accounted for in a wedding package (the DJ, weekend wedding charge, musical entertainment, etc) - put the cooresponding item name and pricing somewhere between A14 & A18 (insert a new row if you have to) so that it gets added into the "Plus Extras" amount for each package.

 

As you can see, I made a section for each of the wedding packages we were considering. Underneath the initial descriptions, I added in extras that we wanted for the reception (like cocktail hour, private reception, etc) and added them under each package so that it would calculate the actual total package pricing for us and what we wanted. For example, if you don't want to upgrade to a cocktail hour or you don't have an outside photographer, you can delete that line from every package and it'll update the pricing at the top.

 

If you have questions, let me know. :)

Hey Ladies,

I have a questions on something...we are paying for the $350.00 vendor fee for our photographers, but Ana tried to sock me with extra fees for them like cake fee of $30.00 for both, cocktail hours of $50.00 for both and the extra hour fee for $50.00 for both. I understand the dinner fee since they will be eating but the rest they will not be taking part in as they will be taking pictures. As of right now I had her take them off the guest list and I am going to deal with the onsite about this in March. Has anyone else had this experience and how did you deal with it or were you just stuck paying?

Thanks for any info! It just seemed silly to me to have to pay for those things if I am already paying $350.00 for them to be there and they won't be eating cake, drinking and will be gone by like 9pm???

 

Oh also if you are looking for a nice personalized gift bag, go to Vistaprint. If you look up  vistaprint coupons on google and you have never been a customer you will 50% OFF..we got canvas pags personalized for like $5.50 a piece for 20 of them! Plus we were able to get thank you note at 50% off as well! Pretty good deal when you do the comparisons!

 

Oh can someone add me in on the list..I can not seem to figure out how to! April 27th!

I just paid for them on my guest list - to be honest, I hadn't even really thought about it.

Hi Ladies, I'm new to this website but SO happy that I found it. We recently decided that we are going to get married at the Royal Playa del Carmen, June 2013. So the planning has just began. I've visited this resort a few times and just LOVE it.

 

I have been reading over the past post and gaining so much information! I have not read all of them, being that there are almost a 1000!

I am excited to hear about every ones up coming weddings!

Happy Planning!

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.

    • Hi, I am getting married after one year. I have tons of planning to do and very little time. Planning a wedding can be difficult especially when there is less time. I have to do a lot of things on my own and at the same time work overtime to earn more money. Recently when I was hanging out with my close friends, I noticed that my friend who had crooked teeth like mine had perfect teeth now. I was surprised to see that I asked her that what did you do for a sudden change. She said that she tried Invisalign braces and had a change with her smile within a short time. I told about this to my bf and he also told me to give a try for it. I took an appointment with a dentist in Aurora. I don't know whether there will be a  change within a short time. What can you say on this? Am I taken a good decision?
    • Hi, I'm in a relationship with a guy who is in my college. He is planning to migrate from our area and he wants to marry me before he leaves. He is well planned for our marriage. He accompanied me for all the wedding shopping and was supporting me a lot. But there was an unexpected accident and I fell down hitting the floor. I was taken to the nearby clinic for getting the emergency dental care  from a clinic in Toronto. My front canine was lost after the accident and I think I need to get dentures before my wedding. Or according to your opinion what can be done other than dentures?
