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

Recommended Posts

My wedding coordinator Maritza said that the either the covered chairs or those white folding ones(I'm thinking these are the ones your talking about?) are included.  I think the only ones that are extra $ are those black metal ones or clear ones.

Hi all!  Are you using the sound system for the ceremony and/or cocktail hour?  If so, is there a fee to use the sound system?  Is there a fee to have someone at the Royal work the sound system for you?

 

I think I read you can bring a CD or an I pod---can you use a Nano?

 

thanks!

You have a sound system with microphone included at no additional fee for both, according to my WC. I believe the WC will run at least the ceremony music for you at no extra fee. Not sure about the rest of your Qs, but would love to know what you find out!

I believe they prefer you to use an iPod. I remember bringing a CD and an iPod and my WC wanted to use the iPod. I just made a playlist for the ceremony and a playlist for cocktail hour. She took notes of what songs in what order for the ceremony, and there was someone there who operated it for us during the ceremony. She would radio to them when we were ready to walk out, etc so they knew to switch the song. 

 

For cocktail hour, I believe they just set it up to play (we were off getting pictures done).

 

Something I did was for the cocktail hour playlist, I put every couple's "song" on there, and since the wedding, I have seen pictures of people dancing with their significant other during cocktail hour to their song. <3

I am also booking the Royale for my wedding in January of 2014.  Could any of you wonderful brides let me know how the resort was with allowing you to bring in your own decorations? Also I am really worried that there are going to be multiple weddings and receptions going on at the resort the same day as mine.  I don't mind that there will be other weddings taking place but I want to make sure that my reception and cermony are semi private. Did the resort do a decent job of keeping the different bridal groups separate on the day of the ceremony and wedding? Also does anyone have pictures of some of the ceremony and reception spots?!

I'm not sure if its like this for everyone, but I could bring in as many decorations as I wanted. Whatever you want really. In the end I ended up leaving a lot of decorations which I think they appreciate because they can use them for other weddings. When you arrive to check in with your WC, you bring all the decorations and explain where they go and preferably give a diagram. Then the morning after the wedding they will return all of your decorations nice and folded in your room. As long as you pay for the private and semi-private wedding you wont have any problem. they should stagger things so that the weddings are never in the same area at the same time. But I would just check in with your WC and ask how many weddings and locations right before the wedding. If you look at the photo or review sections there are photos. But I just got my photos back from Claudia Rodriguez. She did a beautiful job and I will post a few. I had the ceremony at the Gazebo which I would highly reco. Good luck!

Thank you So much for the tip! My fiance and I have our hearts set on a beach wedding but we are worried that there will be tons of people walking back and forth during our ceremony.  Do any of you have an experience or advice regarding the beach wedding and privacy issues

? I guess we just don't want people selling necklaces and kids on surf boards in the ocean for the backdrop of our ceremony photos.  Thanks for the tips!

the beach is, unfortunately, anything but private. where you get married will be public space, so the coordinators can't really do too much to help. and everyone wants to watch. it's one of the reasons we opted for the gazebo - because the Royal can control what goes on in their property - although there was noise from the pool, even at 6pm. if you're looking for something private, the Royal just isn't the place. except maybe if you got married indoors, but why go to the beach for that??
