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

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! This is my very first postcheesy.gif.  I get married there on July 21, 2012 and have about 75 people who will be coming. It sounds like everyone has had a very positive experience so I wanted to get your opinions on some things. I'm really nervous because my wedding planner has literally ignored me for weeks on end. My fiancé who is in school and work and therefore uninvolved, finally called her and she said she has just been very busy doing some 80+ weddings in a month. She then replyed a few emails with quick answers and no direction. Is it normal for them to be this unresponsive? I guess what also scares me now is that there are so may weddings going on and she is to busy for me. Am I not supposed to plan much until a month before? I'm sort of on my own right now planning this thing. Can you and anyone else tell me a little bit about what to expect from the planners there and if I'm just freaking out? I'd really appreciate any advice I can get.

Thank you,

Hola Ralexa2,

 

Planning a Destination Wedding can be very stressful and while the Royal PdC is certainly a very popular hotel for Weddings, their Wedding Team is very organized, have a ton of experience and do an excellent job in helping you put together the Wedding of your Dreams!!

 

We have had the opportunity of telling numerous gorgeous wedding stories there and are happy to share with you a few pictures and slide shows to help you visualize your day:

I missed the webinar too =( Any good advice that you guys picked up would be super helpful!

Also, I just found these linen pants for my groomsmen. Initially was going to go with studiosuits.com, but for $20, this is a steal! A couple of them tried the pants on yesterday and they fit well and looks nice. Not see-through and it has a tiny bit of a tighter fit, but that's ok because my groomsmen will be wearing suspenders and a bowtie with it (so I don't want it to be too loose anyways). The price in-stores is $20 right now, but online it is $30. It may be more convenient to buy online to get the exact sizes and there is a 20% code until 5/8 making them $24 each.

ladies - I'm here!! and I have PAGES of things to tell you, but the internet connection is a bit in and out inside the rooms.

 

our wedding was last night. I'm so happy with everything, and we had to improvise some of the biggest elements. it just goes to show that no matter how coordinated things are, chaos happens as soon as the photogs show up. ha!

 

I can't wait to tell you all about it. few quick notes. freeze dried rose petals are NOT ALLOWED IN MEXICO!!!!!! girls who have brought them in before have been lucky. the dog sniffed them out immediately in customs, and they took them from us. in the end, it was ok because the later your ceremony time is, the more the wind is blowing in from the sea, and I think we would've had a petal tornado if we put those 120 cups out at 5:30pm. it would've been crazy!!

 

also, it's ABSOLUTELY too windy for sky lanterns. we tried one and almost burned down the condo complex where we had the reception (Wicky's). hillarious story, but when they say it's too windy, believe them. after a few dips into the roof, the lantern crash landed into the pool, so everything was ok, but it did everything but rise gracefully into the sky.

 

the wind will affect your hair, too. the salon does a great job at sticking it down, but if you like a little height, be clear with them. mine was so flat, we ended up teasing and pinning the bangs up later. saw another girl and her entire entourage in there, they're churning out weddings left and right. I wouldn't doubt their ability to handle hair/makeup.

 

ok, I'll write more later. sooo glad we're here until friday!! finally starting to relax. : )

thanks ladies. couple other quick thoughts on things to bring. I wish I had more t-shirts to wear in the pool and during activities like ocean kayaking. everyone here is burnt, and that'd really help. also, be sure you grab a couple baseball caps. again, great to do for the sun. I put on SPF 15, 30 then 55 and still managed to burn one shoulder somehow (I blame the toucan who we took a picture with a few days ago ; ).

 

I'm meeting Matt from Del Sol photography for drinks tonight. can't wait to write more, and I'll check in again as soon as I'm back. : )
