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

Recommended Posts

Great!! Thanks guys!

 

Now I see on the TSA wedding site that the garmet bag for a wedding dress can only be 45 inches??? I feel like mine is bigger than that...

Hi all! 

 

Congrats to all the new MRS!!

 

These food questions have me thinking...When do you give the counts for each entree?  I also have gluten free guests.  My mom has Celiac's so she really cannot have any wheat.  Did you inform them of those type of special orders at the 45 day checkpoint, or did you tell your WC when you got there? 

 

I am about to send my invitations out but this made me realize I need people to RSVP with food choices, and I haven't chosen the menu yet!

I turned it in with my 30 day checklist. I just wrote 14 chicken, 15 beef, 4 children meals, etc

to be honest....my wedding coordinator was never set on any 30 or 45 day out checklist etc. but for my own comfort, i basically wrote out an itinerary of everything for that day. it included EVERYTHING. table numbers, who is at what table and their meal choice, when the eremony was, all decorations etc. then i just sent that over a couple weeks before hand. but i also gave her an "updated" one when i met zulma at the resort just in case there were changes. so as long as you have the basics ahead of time, if you have to add/change a couple meals when you get there it really isn't an issue.

hey everyone!

I've been MIA for quite some time.  I've read up on all the helpful information.  We have finally made our decision to have our wedding at the Royal PDC on June 4, 2011.  We are going to being doing our site visit next weekend after thanksgiving for 5 days.  Congrats to all the new brides and future brides. 

 

I was wondering what company did ya'll use for airport transfers?  Did you do a private transfer or shared. 

 

Did any company offer ya'll discounts for the wedding group?

 

thanks,

Heidi

 

p.s. I booked ivan for our photographer.  I am sooooo excited!

In any case, anyone have any sort of checklists that they used? Everyone sounds so organized and on top of things!!

Lisa- I know it will all work out. So sorry that your ladies were not able to make it. At least they'll be there in spirit! It's your day.

 

Bon_Air - I apologize if you thought I was making fun of the explosion in Mexico - that was not my intent. I was commenting more on how my Mom has been acting like a skittish colt every time she heard news about acts of violence.

 

JoZee - I will definitely PM you!!

 

Ladies - I just realized I let my passport expired - how long did it take you to get a new pasport?

 

Jes - at wicky's, was it a private area that you had? I love your rehearsal dress - so fun and tropical.

 

Ladies that came back and just used Fernando - did he have a large selection of makeup colors to chose from? I bought some other colors just in case. Was he open to using other makeup that you owned?

Fernando had a LOT of makeup! I was talking to my sister and wondered why some make-up artists have their own makeup and she made a good point. If you're a professional in the field and you use professional products I'm sure it will bring your quality of work down if someone shows up with all their Cover Girl or Wet N' Wild makeup and expects you to make them look great using less than stellar products. It made sense to me. But he does have a huge selection and I'm sure you won't need any of your own!

Does anyone know did they have a dry cleaning place that could steam my dress?? I don't really want to have it steamed here and then travel with it and it be a mess again. I bought a steamer but I'm afraid to do it myself if they have a place!

 

Just let them (the Royal) pick it up and steam it and return it. Trust me, I was anal about this and worried, but I wouldn't have it any other way. A hand steamer won't do the job, and it is included in certain packages. They were amazing and my dress looked perfect when it was returned to me! :)

Very cool! I just bought extra colors from MAC store in Houston that I liked. LOL... The control freak inside of me just can't quite let go. I think once I do a site visit and a trial with him - I'll be more relaxed. The only thing I don't like is their foundation. Something in it made my face break out. 

 

Good to know about their steamer service being reliable. It seems so scary to just hand it over. LOL....

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • 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
