Destined to be a Royal PDC Bride!

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


I am new here, and am SO glad to have found you!


My name is Shannon and my fiance Ken, proposed to me March 20, 2008 after nearly 6 years together. smile159.gif


We plan on getting married May 2009 in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico. The resort we are trying to confirm is the Royal Playa del Carmen, and we will be travelling with about 17 of our closest friends and family!


I've been lurking around the site for about a week, and have read a lot of information about the Royal and all the tips and tricks Royal brides have offered, but am going to need even more help starting me off! I have emailed, who I believe to be the wedding coordinator at the resort twice (one month ago and two weeks ago), and have yet to receive a response...so...we'll see I suppose.


Anyways, just wanted to make my newbie appearance, and look forward to talking with you about our big day(s)!!!


Thank you in advance to all the friends I will surely make!


Best Regards,


Shannon Johnston

Montreal, QC

Welcome to the forum! I'm getting married at the Royal in just over two weeks! The communication definitely has been slow, but the resort looks beautiful and all the brides I've talked to who have married there have been thrilled. I'll be sure to answer any of your questions when I get back, and to post a review. Congratulations!

Congratulations to you both as well!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
