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

Recommended Posts

Thanks Kara! That's a great idea!

 

I am very excited for the wedding. I am very excited to just GET AWAY from work as well!

 

I wish there was a new review to read on one of the Royals...i've only walked on the property once (I was staying at another resort) and I remember the pool being very beautiful. I think it was really impress my guests that all the rooms are oceanfront. I don't think I've ever stayed in a room that was so oceanfront! My family always opted for the "gardenviews" at the resorts we stayed at...haha.

 

My aunt has always stayed at Palace hotels. She particularly loved the moon palace. I have seen pictures of the moon palace and it kind of looks motel-ish. Has anyone stayed at both places? The Royal just looks more upscale to me...

I visited The royal quickly a half year ago and think it is just more upscale and urban. Its seems smaller too, which I like because it mean less corporate. I'm not sure if I'm misunderstanding about the ocean front part in your email, but I know you have to pay to be in front where you have a view of the ocean. I read somewhere here that there are rooms along the whole back side of the hotel that probably get views of the parking lot. I really hope its not that bad since most all of my guests got the least expensive rooms.

 

But the hotel will blow you away, its beautiful, and the location is the best. The beach isn't necessarily the best, but its much nicer then if you head toward Cancun.

Someone mentioned a ceremony script so I asked Maritza for the one for the symbolic ceremony and it was....AWFUL!  I'm very laid back about all of this wedding stuff, but the script was just not gonna cut it. So many grammatical errors and stuff that was just weird to talk about in a wedding ceremony...like solving problems with talking, not fists.   I know there's a language barrier and all (I'm a spanish teacher after all) but Geez!  Hopefully they'll let me use my own.

I guess we have to roll with the punches right? That's the advice I would give to any bride. Our brothers sound kind of similar. I know my parents were worried about him and the all inclusive resort. I mean, the Royals have liquor bars right in the room! It's tough for anyone that has any kind of addiction.

 

I wanted the all inclusive because of the relaxed atmosphere for my guests and didn't really think about my brother.

 

It's been back and forth whether he will come to the wedding or not, but I would have loved to use that money for his room to help out some of my friends who are staying offsite.

 

I know the Royal will be amazing and everything will be ok, but I will feel depressed that he will not be there. Those pictures last forever and he will not be a part of them...

 

So sorry to hear that you are going through this so close to the wedding date! I went through this with my sister, although luckily for me we had these conversations early on instead of last minute. Our siblings sound so oddly familiar! I hope for you that once you get there you will just be able to relax and enjoy the time you have with everyone.

I haven't seen the ceremony script but I was thinking about writing our own anyways, we are doing a wine box ceremony instead of the sand and I doubt they have anything for it. If they tell you they won't let you write your own, please be sure to post about it!

Yes the reason I wanted Cancun over PDC was because of the resort being smaller, and all of the rooms (even the basic ones) at the Royal in Cancun are Oceanfront. Meaning that every room they have faces the Ocean. I think that was a selling point for Cancun for me over PDC. I wanted everyone to be immediately wowed when they walked into their rooms.

 

Both resorts are phenom I am assuming, but I wanted something that was close to the airport and wasnt as spreadout.

Hey Ladies,

 

I'm looking for some ideas and need help! Since we are doing our reception at an outside restaurant (Wickys) and it will be more of a dinner than a reception, I was thinking of doing a slideshow/video for our guests. I was thinking of starting with baby pictures of us and show us growing up to the time we met. I don't really know where to start and would love any ideas you want to share!

 Hey Lucky,

 

We leave next Thursday as well. I kind of wish I had booked a few more days! Too late now I guess.

 

How many people do you have coming to Mex? We have around 28 and I am hoping that won't be too small for a big dance party with a DJ!! I am lugging SO MUCH STUFF down there! Hopefully it will be all worth it!

 

I really want to do a wedding planning thread on here but half of the stuff I am using is at my Mom's house in FL. I guess I'll have to do one when I get back in July.

 

SO SO SOOOO excited!!!

    • 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.
