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

Recommended Posts

I have heard that it's on 5th avenue...but I don't know for sure. Did you try to do a look up on the MAC website for the exact location?

I thought you could choose each and every option and I wanted to do a pricing comparison. Well you still have to choose one of the packages. Than you just get to pick diffrent upgrades which I already knew about.

The Ultimate comes with bride hair, make up, pedi and mani but I am not going to be using any of these. I am not going to be using the photography either. I wish there was a way to do an exchange for diffrent services instead of those

oh well
I was disappointed to find out that we had to pick a package regardless...booo...i don't think i would need makeup and bridal hairstyling either! I def don't need a photographer...I already have a photographer flying in. More pics, right?

Do let us know if there is a MAC...that would be great for my bridesmaids. The resort is charging $60 just for makeup...i think that's just crazy. Hopefully MAC won't charge too much!

Ladies, here is what Kimberly sent me for their centerpiece that comes with the package...she said rose petals are an extra cost.

Any ideas how we can spruce them up? Bring hurricane vases?

TA Jennifer provided it to me when working with the WC to secure the date with the WC at The Royal. Hopefully, you will be able to open it soon. Just keep posting away!

Hello -
You will need 150 posts to open attachments. You'll be amazed at how quickly that will happen. If you have further questions, check out the forum rules regarding opening attachments.

Good luck,

Someone asked how much MAC charges for makeup, its $50 you purchase whatever make up you want for $50 and they do your makeup, its not a bad deal at all, just watch the artist's. MAC likes to go really heavy on makeup. Onto the food, I spoke with Kimberly again and I asked how much they would charge to add on extra entrees but she didnt respond to that, however what she did say was "everyone has the same entree, unless I would like to offer the choices in my invites and keep track of which guest is having which entree and make place cards with the entree choice on the card for each guest" So it looks like thats what im going to have to do, especially the fact that I am Jewish and not the majority but theyre are a select few from my family that do only eat kosher, therefor putting a steak infront of thier face, would not go over so well. Also just to inform some of you ladies that are worried about getting your hair and makeup done through the hotel, during our stay last year I had my hair "blown out" 3 times and makeup done once, and it looked great! theyre prices I dont remember off hand but it was reasonable.

Yeah, everything is pretty much done, except for the things that we can only do there.

This is what I have planned:

Friday-Catamaran for all guests (as a 'thank you' for coming)

Saturday-Ceremony-5:00-Gazebo-Reception-beach-DJ Doremixx & Del Sol photographers

Sunday-Find a bar that is playing the Saints game :)

We have about 25 guests coming, so it will be a small, but very lively bunch!

 

I am soooooo ready!

So exciting!!!

Your ceremony is at 5:00 at the Gazebo? I saw on that a la carte link that someone posted that you could only have the ceremony there at 12 or 1 or something. i awnted to have mine around 4:00. So this is good news! I was going to call my wedding planner today to get them to ask about that!

Have a great time!

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B

    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
