The Royal Playa del Carmen - Very Long!!!!

Recommended Posts

The Royal allowed you to have kids at the wedding? Were they allowed for both the ceremony and reception or only the ceremony? I'm thinking about having my wedding at the Royal, but I think there may be a few kids that would come if they are allowed.

Yes, kids were allowed at the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. I had about 8 kids, all under 6 years old. None of the guests were given any trouble except for one guest who arrived late from the Gran Porto with his 2 sons. The security guards were not letting him enter the property, even when he told the guy he was attending the wedding. After much convincing, the security guard escorted him through the front entrance and into the ballroom, even though all the other guests (including children) were sitting by the lobby bar! In short, he was finally able to join the rest of the party w/ his kids.

The wedding ceremony was on the beach...so everyone knew to go straight to the beach. The beach location actually changed when we got there. FI and I wanted to change locations due to the beach renovations and ugly pipes that were in front of Gran Porto, which would have been visible had we kept the original ceremony location. The set-up is very visible once guests arrive on the beach. The one guest who showed up late went through the front entrance. He missed the ceremony. I don't believe he stopped at the front desk, which is probably why he got stopped by the security guards. Also, I provided a resort map indicating the ceremony location in a Welcome booklet I made (included with OOT bags).

This dark cloud loomed ahead pre-ceremony. It slowly crept its way over us and poured immediately after the I Do's. This is a picture a friend captured after all the guests cleared the seats and sought shelter under the gazebo.

I thought the guests had to go to the front desk to get a bracelet to enter the property...and also thought they would have a list of guests to check off to make sure there would be 35, not 38 people. You know?

    • 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.
