    I brought in an outside makeup artist who did it in my room.... they don't care. I just used that part for my nails in the spa instead of makeup

      Just tell them he is a guest of your wedding and add him to your list. they will not charge you.

       

      For the table overlays- I ordered 72 inch pink overlays and they were perfect- tables hold up to 9 max.

        Chrissy- 

         

        Congrats on being a wifey! Oooh, good tip. I don't plan to use overlays we are using tablecloths. Do you happen to know what size of  tablecloths to take for the round tables 90", 108" or 120"? I can't wait to see you amazing wedding pictures.

          Hello everyone!

           

          I am pretty new to this site but am happy to announce that we have booked our wedding with DRC for April 19, 2012!  I can't wait!!  I was able to go down to the Mayan Riviera a couple of months ago and did a few site inspections in order be sure about my decision.  I was really torn between DRC, Azul Sensatori and the Royal.  For those of you who have not had the opportunity to go down and actually see the property, rest assured you all made a WISE decision to have your wedding there!  The property is beautiful.  The rooms, restaurants, pools and spa looked EXACTLY like they did in the pics I found online if not better!  The beach is perfect as well.  White powder sand and not at all rocky. I met with one of the managers there as well as one of the WCs, Lisbeth, and they were both extremely helpful, friendly and welcoming.  Lisbeth emailed me all of the DRC wedding package information right away and was quick to reply to my questions (unlike what I have read about some resorts where communication with the WCs is verrrry slow).  I was actualy disappointed with what I saw at Azul Sensatori...  Their beaches were not at all like those at DRC... very rocky and not even close to as "pretty" as DRC (not at all where I would want to have a beach ceremony).  The resort itself felt gigantic far too spread out.  We were given lunch and I found that the food (well what we had at least) wasn't very good.  Everything looks much nicer in the photos online then when you are actually there.  However, their WC was very nice and gave us a great tour. 

           

          During our trip, we stayed at the Royal in Playa del Carmen and also visited the Royal in Cancun and I must say, it's a BEAUTIFUL resort for honeymooners and well worth your consideration should you be looking for an alternate resort if you are extending your stay!  We are booked at the Royal in Cancun for ours.  Beaches at both are amazing and the food was delicious!!

           

          Happy planning to all!

            CCsoti,

             

            Congratulations on getting your date set and welcome to the site.  I too would have our wedding at the Royal Cancun if it weren't for the few little kids that are part of the family.  I've stayed at the Royal three times before and love every stay.  It was sooo amazing and the food and just lovely.  I haven't tried the food at DRC but have tried the food at Dreams Cancun and I do hope they are about the same or better.  I felt the same way too when we did our site visit to Azul.  I almost put a deposit down on Azul without even seeing it first.  I then had chance to do a site visit for both resorts and was sold on Dreams Riviera Cancun over Azul.

                Hi CCsoti, and Congrats/welcome!! We weren't able to do a site visit and have actually never been to the Cancun/Riviera Maya so its great to hear that you loved DRC when you visited! the Royal resorts look amazing but we also have a few young kids on the guest list, including my sister whos only 12 so the royal resorts werent an option. Anyways congratulations!

                  Hi ssapper and SharonMydung!  Thank you and congrats to both of you as well   I am in the same boat re having children at the wedding.  Otherwise, my decision between DRC and the Royal would have been a seriously difficult one!  SharonMydung, I almost did the same thing re giving a deposit to Azul without seeing it as the "adults only" section really appealed to some of my guests who are coming without children.  I am really glad we did the site inspections! Honestly, it's hard to believe that Azul has an "on the beach" ceremony option given their beach is very far from picturesque!   

                   

                  ssaper, rest assured that you made an excellent decision in choosing DRC!  It honestly looks even better in person than on the website or in photos on tripadvisor and whatnot.  I went to a couple of other properties before DRC other than the ones I mentioned in my earlier post and was starting to feel like maybe I had made the wrong decision in selecting the Mayan Riviera as the location for our wedding.  I was feeling really anxious and discouraged with what I was seeing in other resorts!  From the moment we arrived in the lobby of DRC, I breathed a sigh of relief and literally said "Yes!!  This is what I was expecting!  Let's book".  haha.

                   

                  Congrats again to both of you!
