Hi all!

 

I'm getting married at the Royal on 6/25/12. So excited!

 

My only concern is I feel like I shouldn't have had my guests stay at both hotels: Royal & Caribe. My family is staying at Caribe and my fiance's at Royal. The rest of our guests are at both as well. Now, i'm worried that we won't be able to hang out together because guests at Caribe can't come over to the Royal.

 

Has anyone had this at their wedding? Was it a problem for all the guests to socialize during the day? I know day passes are available but those are $100 a day to come over to Royal and that's too expensive. I don't need them to come over and hang out by the pool, but how is the beach set up? Is it public?

 

Thank you for your feedback,

 

Alma

My wedding coordinator is Claudy che, but she is leaving for maternity leave next week so I will get assigned a new WC.

 

I understand the January 1st RSVP, but maybe you should push it out a little further? A lot of people have holiday bills to pay and might be overwhelmed with the idea of paying for a vacation thats 6 months away. I am hoping for final RSVP by 1-April.

 

I am beyondddddd frustrated with the wedding coordinators at realresorts. I pretty sure that anyone that comes to MX will stay at the Royal. They only have 1-2 areas that host private receptions for parties less than 50 people.

 

The only private reception place they have (which I took out of desperation) is the rooftop terrace on the gran caribe side (green floor, ugh). I also have to have the cocktail hour up there because they can't squeeze my cocktail hour on the beach by pelicanos which is where my ceremony will be.

 

SORRY JUST VENTING!

 

I am seriously considering having the reception at another hotel. Most of my family who are coming is staying at the Royal, but I do not like the idea of having the reception on a rooftop that is made for over 150+ people!

 

I really really don't know what to do, but I guess I am acting like a bridezilla right now.

 

Would it be crazy to push my date forward or back a day so I can get a better location?

Hey Sparksfly, I jus noticed i  posted the reply to the last post like 4 times lol sorry my computer was acting up.

 

My WC is Angie, shes a nice girl

Yea i figured they wouldnt be able to RSVP, but i told peeople that that date is just a rough estimate to know if they think they would be able to or absoloutly NO,  like ive had a coupl eof people that in the beginning has said i wouldbt miss it for nothing but now 2 are prego, the opther just moved, the other might take her kids to disney, so now i have about 6 absoultyl NO's so i might extend invites to some that i couldnt invite but now can.

 

yea althgouh the beach is not private its semi-private my dream is and always been on the beach, the only expection i would do it the gazebo if godforbid it rains which im already freaking out about weather but you can have the gazebo for the reception? or the ballroom?

 

im getting frustrated with the royal cuz i feel like some brides have gotten away with certain things and here i am asking my WC and she says no. although another bride has gotten it.. i dont understand!!

Hi ALmah,

 

Well right now the resort is having a promotion for day passes, you must buy 3 but each cost about $60 so thats good compared to the $100 you save a lot. and the 60 is for the all day pass they have i believe a $40 for times of 9-5 so that can work too.. Another thing is you can always go to Gran Caribe instead. My guest arent all staying for the week some are just going for 3 days so thats another option and the Beach is public and ive heard of people saying they havent gotten caught

I went with my local TA. Nora Blum with Travel Leaders. 

And ladies....... My wedding is less than 2 months away. I have done some research on the little extra things but have done nothing. I would like to do OOT bags, favors ect ect.... But Im spending all my budget on dj, photo & video.

So unless I come up with some extra $ I'm not going to worry about it until I get there. It's going to be just as beautiful and memorable no matter what!

Hey! Maybe you can hit up the Costco or Walmart  in Cancun before your guests arrive? Buy some little stuff there for your OOT bags? I've been trying to figure out if my Mom can go over there and pickup flowers (Costco) for the reception centerpieces...

Also, I am not going to lie...,my fiance and I went to Cancun in November of 2010 and we snuck on the Royal's property for a little while- no problems.

 

We didn't try to get any food or drinks...we just hung out by the pool.

My WC told me there is a promotion, the thing is you must buy 3 to get them for $60 a piece.... but its worth it considering one all day pass is 100.....

Hey SparksFly, 

 

if you're not happy with your location, and you're able to move the date around, I would. I saw pix of the green terrace and I didn't care for it either. It would be great, despite the size, but the green turf is horrible. However, not that the carper in the ballroom is any prettier and I'm stuck in there.
