The Royal PDC - Welcome Dinner Q's and After Party!

Recommended Posts

A couple questions... I did a search and didn't really find what I was lookin' for!

 

What does one do if you have too many people for the Welcome Dinner (over 35ppl) but don't want to pay for a private event?? I really wanted to just do the welcome dinner at one of the restaurants and make it easy, but I think I'm going to be juuuuust over. (Including Bride and Groom we have 36 booked, are expecting 3 more but unsure.) I need help!

 

Also, what does one do for an after party in Playa del Carmen?? Easy transport or even by foot from The Royal? At the Royal? I'm trying to figure out what to do with my guests afterward because I'm pretty positive that my group will not be done by 10-11pm! Haha.

 

Thanks in advance! :)

I am kind of wondering the same thing. It looks like we will have about 50 people, but want to do some kind of welcome dinner - off the resort. But obviously I don't want to go overboard with costs.

 

Then our reception begins at 6:00 and will probably go until 10:00 but I am sure some of us will want to continue the celebration afterwards!

I think that we will take our after party to Blue Parrot. Our reception is at 6pm on a Friday night and the Blue Parrot is known to have an excellent fire show on the beach on Friday's. From what I understand you can have a welcome party at Maries at the Gran Porto for 10$ a person. Not sure if this price difference is in your price range. I would check with your WC to make sure this price is accurate

I'm doing my welcome dinner at Maries at the Gran and it is $15/person. I have 37 including me and the groom and my wedding coordinator hasn't told me no...she went ahead and booked it out.

Thanks for the replies! We have 38 confirmed for Marie's, $15/pp talked to Angie today and she said that was fine, and if we end up with more guests or not enough room they might move us to another restaurant.

 

Thanks for the info on the Blue Parrot!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
