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

Recommended Posts

Oh my goodness ladies! I had no idea about this 600$ fee! At least it won't be a surprise when I get my final total. I definitely failed to see that at the bottom of the wedding packages.

Mae-- I can understand how your FI feel's about wanting to have his bestman be his bestman and not both!! We have 40 people going so it was easier for me to find someone otherwise I would be having to pay for it too!! I I wish I could help you out on the dress thing. Im sure it will be just fine tho, NOT TO WORRY!!

 

Jen-- Most def, take a look at that bill girl!! I think I went over my 100 times and I still had questions!!

Jen -- I couldn't stop staring at the package list once I realized my $1,000 classic wedding was actually $2000 with the $400 weekend fee, and the $600 minister fee! I have everything mapped out on a spread sheet and those two little hidden gems threw me off course for a minute.

Have you ladies ever thought of maybe just doing the "free" wedding ??? I opted for this considering WE LOVE the Master suites and adding things together of the things i would ACTUALLY need and Use.. it made more sense to do that. and i get the officiante  for free :o).....and still saved some money...

I have to say that you do not have to pay for the minister if you book a master or presidential suite.

 

For the free wedding package we booked the prez suite for an extra 1000 dollars for 5 days and that includes the minister.

 

There was no way I was paying the hotel 600 dollars for a "minister". I heard they use randoms that work at the hotel!!

ha, the minister I saw was almost certainly not hotel personnel (she even had the right outfit! ; ), but as I said earlier, she was hard to understand. if she did work there, they did a good job hiding her, because I didn't see her in the 9 days we were there (outside of the ceremony she performed ; ).  

 

I know the master suite was more expensive than our ocean view room, but I have to now wonder if it's comparable to the new minister fee. heck, for the same price, you could even bring someone with you with two nights' reservation at the grand porto, provided you could convince them to spring for airfare. ; )

Yes I had thought we had decided that the classic wedding package would be cheaper overall than the free wedding package.  But now I am thinking I may be wrong.  We are staying for 7 days(flight and air package) and to book a master suite would be a extra 1200.00 CAD for us.  I will have to recalculate it.  If we are spending that anyways I would much rather get a better room!! You gals sure keep me on my toes!

Okay, I just sent my TA an email asking how much it would be for us to upgrade to one of the suites! If this works, you ladies are my heros!!!

Yup.. This is why I booked a Master suite... Why pay $600 when i can use that towards my upgrade.... or better yet some of the packages have things that i wont be using anyways.. from day one I knew i would be getting the free package because we Absoloutly love the master suite.. If your going to get married might as well go all out.. no???  Just something for you ladies to think about..

Umm... I almost wonder now if that would have been the better option for me too?? I am gonna be there for 2 weeks so I guess I figured that I wouldn't be able to afford the master or prez suite for that long :-) Oh well can't change it now!! 15 days till we leave and 17 till the wedding day!!woot.gif

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
