      I am trying to plan a wedding for 11/2010. I was told a huge packet of info is sent after you give the deposit. I would like the info before I place the deposit. Anyone have this packet/additional info?

I was also thinking about booking moments that matter photagraphy. their work looks beautiful!! i am a little nervous about the resort photographer i have not seen anything by them. please post your review of the food at the royal when you go for the tasting thanks! my wedding date is July 10 2010

          Hi Ladies!

          I'm SO glad that I found this thread. I’ve been having a hard time getting first-hand information from people who have gotten married at the Royal in Cancun. I have some time—but I am such a planner that I wanted to start collecting information now :o)

          Have any of you seen the Catholic Chapel at the Caribe? If so, what did you think? For those of you who have visited, what did you think of the food? Is their photographer any good?

          Thanks, and I look forward to hearing about everyone’s wedding journey!
          Angie

            Has anyone decided about hair and makeup?? Are you going to use the services at spazul?? I'm kind of scared...

              Hi future Royal Cancun Brides, I leave next Friday for our food tasting and "site inspection"
              If anyone has any questions they want me to ask, just shoot them over. As far as hair at spa azul, When I stayed @ the Royal last year I had my hair blown out 3x, it came out amazing, so I am not worried about that. Makeup im going to get done while im down there next week as a "trial" but ive read other reviews from girls who have had their makeup down at spa azul PDC and have rave reviews. As far as information being sent over, just ask you WC that youve been dealing with and she will send it. Ask her for the "extras price list" this included prices for bouqets, centerpieces, the spa, and so on....

              He asked, I said YES!!! 1 <3 21 <3 04 - 5 <3 13 <3 08

                  Site Inspection.
                  We met with a Denise Compas, who was sweet as anything, only I would say her knowledge about the weddings is only about 45%, she was carrying around a binder with her that I assumed had prices and pictures and this and that... But every time we asked how much something extra would be or the prices of bows, she needed to double check with Kimberly. She seemed very uncertain with almost every answer she gave us. Either which way she took us to see the grounds (which are always well kept and beautiful) and sat with us during our food tasting.

                  Food tasting. our choices. Beef tournado fillet, pasta w/ dried tomatoe sauce(vegitarian menu) and the salmon.
                  The salmon was delicious, presentation A+ my fiance who only eats shellfish tried the salmon and finished it on me! His first time every trying it
                  The beef fillet, was good, steaks all taste the same to me
                  and the pasta. The pasta was unreal! I couldnt believe it.
                  They ask you if you want anything changed in the presentation, which we thought was nice.
                  We picked all 3, because I felt I couldnt just offer one option to such a large group of picky people, I was told in order to do this I would simply have to keep track. No problem, the food choices were already sent out with the invites and when I have the final's and seating chart, I just have to print up a menu for each table w/ their selections. Dont let them tell you, you only have one option for the entree, you can pick 3 or 2 if you were willing to keep track on your own.

                  The gazebo on the Royal side, dont be afraid at first look it looks rather small, and thats because they cant set up any chairs behind the gazebo, due to the beds and lounged being placed right behind. But it can hold up to 50 people inside the gazebo, and during a light rain you can still get married out there because it doesnt drip through. So we looked at the gazebo on the Gran side and that I think holds up to 70 people inside, and they can put rows of chairs infront of stairs to gazebo as well. You can also have the cocktail hour right there, so we went with the gazebo on the gran side. My dad is handicapped and I felt the location would just be easier for him, which makes me happy. From cocktail hour you walk back up 3 or 4 steps and to the right and theres a big white staircase that takes you to the terrace of the albetros restuarant, which is really pretty and you have both a view of the ocean and the lagoon. Only downfall, is the floor is covered in green felt. But we were up there around the same time our reception would be going and onces its pretty dark you really cant even notice it, it kind of shimmers.
                  The staircase leading up to the terrace is decorated with white candles on both sides, which I think will be beautiful. We intitally were just going to use our ipod to A. cut costs and B. we really only listen to house music and since itll mostly be a young crowd.. but then we found out that there wouldnt be anyone watching over the ipod, and I didnt like that, so we are now booked with dj ivan gomez. There is a Mac at the mall, its about a 10 minute walk and 4 minute cab drive, they charge $80 for makeup application, but youre actually purchasing makeup for that amount and then they do your application, here in NY its only $50 so I am a little put off, but Im considering it as the gifts for my BM's, they get new makeup and wont have to pay to get it done. Spa Azul at the resort charges $60 just for makeup application, so. We never looked at the ballroom cause we dont care to see it, our hearts are set on being married outdoors.
                  Any questions or anything else you want to know just ask, thats all I can really think of now.

                    Hi Stevens Fiance,

                    I am from the UK and planning to get married at the Royal, Cancun in 2011, going next year to see the resort.

                    Can I ask which area for the ceremony would you say would be the most private? Not sure if want a beach or gazebo ceremony? only be about 20 guests at most so size isnt really an issue.

                    Thanks

                      Well the Gazebo on the royal side, can be somewhat "private" depending at what time of day, last year in May we stayed at the Royal and the sun sets pretty early on that side, around 4pm theres no sun hitting that spot, so most pool people will have moved to the other side of the pool, the activity side.

                      But the Gazebo on the Gran Caribe side, is really private, on lookers can still see, but you wont find anyone wondering over there, its kind of sectioned off.
                      He asked, I said YES!!! 1 <3 21 <3 04 - 5 <3 13 <3 08
