THE ROYAL wedding guide?

Recommended Posts

Please forgive me if this is already in a thread somewhere (I've exhausted all search term options!), but I'm wondering if anyone has uploaded a wedding guide for THE ROYAL Playa del Carmen (or Cancun, for that matter, I'm sure the info would be roughly the same).


I'm trying to get an idea of the added costs for having a wedding there and it's taking awhile for the WC to get back to me. If this info is somewhere out there already, I'd rather her not waste her time!


What I'm looking for is more complete info than what's on the website already. In the Dreams Tulum thread, there's some fantastic attachments about all the details. Does anyone have anything like this for ROYAL?


Added costs for additional guests and other upgrades are a concern to us and will definitely be the "clincher" when making the final decision about where we're going to do this. I have the booking form and legal requirements info already, it's all the other stuff I'm wondering about!


Any help is GREATLY appreciated!!! TIA!!!

I am interested in information on the Royal too. Hoping to get more from the TA that I have been working with so far. If she gets back to me with more info, I will let you know. If anyone does have further details, do share! She did mention all of their clients come back with rave reviews about the Royal.


Our guests will likely stay at the Gran (all ages). Is that a concern for you? We will only have a few younger guests. I wonder what the cost is at the Royal if everyone, including bride and groom, stays at the Gran?


There is so much to consider!

Hi Oscar_Ernie,


After my last post, I came across a long thread for the Royal. It may not answer all of your questions, but what I read so far is helpful....


It is titled:


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


Hope you can find it, if you haven't already!

Thanks gals. Yes, I did see that thread, but (at the time at least) didn't have much of the specific info I'm looking for.


Yes, Jillian, I'm guessing most of my guests will want to save some money and stay at the Gran too. I also wonder what impact that will have on the cost for those of us staying at ROYAL. I'm guessing a few guests may also choose to go an even cheaper route too, with money being tight for most folks these days. I'm really curious to know how much the day passes cost because, of course, we'd be covering that for our guests. That could REALLY add up if many stay next door.


I'm going to check out that thread again and see if any new info has been posted. Just thought I'd check if anyone out there had documents that could be posted for us. Thanks, gals!

I'll give the info that I can off the top of my head. For our reception on the beach, it was $50.00 per person if they stayed at one of the resorts owned by this company. If they are staying at another resort, it is $60.00 per person. It doesn't matter if you get a buffet or plated meal. Our reception was wonderful. The food was great. We only had a cake that was supposed to serve 12 people and we had 23. It didn't matter that we didn't get extra because everyone was full after dinner and your dinner includes a desert. We had them store our cake in a freezer and we just called them and told them what night we wanted it so that they could thaw it out and have it delivered to our room for a romantic night alone. Our wedding package also only included 12 glasses of champagne for a toast after the ceremony but they gave us enough for everyone without being asked. I'm glad that we didn't go ahead and pay the extra money for more of these items. We did not pay for any extra decorations other than the centerpieces on the tables. It really wasn't needed. The centerpieces were $50.00 a piece. I was happy that we did this. After our reception we gave one to both sets of parents, we took ours, and we gave the other one to some friends of ours whose anniversary just happened to be the next day. For the next week our room smelled beautiful! Every time we walked in, all you could smell was lillies! I will try to remember what the cost of day passes were and I will let you know. If you have any other specific questions, feel free to PM me and I will help with whatever I can. Oh yeah, one more thing. We did go over to the Gran Porto since we had access to all of their facilities. It was like a circus over there. There were kids running all over the place and screaming. The food wasn't nearly as good....although it was more "kid friendly" fare. The hallways were dark and I felt like I was walking through a cave. At the Royal, everything was bright and open. Just beautiful. I am very happy that we payed the extra money for The Royal. It was definitely worth it. I don't think our trip would have been at all relaxing if we stayed across the street.

Thanks, this is especially helpful info! I'd like my guests to have the option of saving a few bucks (plus, a couple may bring kids anyway), but it's good to know that we're making the right decision to stay at The Royal ourselves. That place just look gorgeous!!! I can't wait!

Sorry, but as far as I know there isn't. I know it's not quite the same as connecting with others who will be at your exact resort location, but you're ALWAYS welcome to come share with us on the Playa del Carmen thread instead. =) The info should be about the same and we'd love to talk with you!!!

    • 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.
