Wedding at the Royal Cancun April 20, 2010 Del Sol pictures !!!

Recommended Posts



Your photos are amazing! I love your dress... you looked like a mermaid... how practical! wink.gif

Your cake design was very nice. It looked like it had crisp cut-out lines and the fondant looked smoothed out too from the pictures but I noticed you gave the cake rating a 3/10 for its bland taste. So now you got my attention!

Was this an in-house cake? What flavor did you choose? Was this the cake that was included in your free wedding package? Did the resort cut and serve the cake to your guests? Were you able to order a cake of the right size for your intimate guest party or did they just give you a really big cake???


I have several reasons to be concerned about the cake:

  1. Presentation / Size: I have seen a photo of a cake that was served at one of their weddings last June at the Royal in Cancun and it was ordered to serve 50 guests. The bride said it looked like it could feed 200 people!!! Not only that but the fondant was not smooth. It had some rather large wrinkles and this was the 1st thing I noticed in her pics... Ouch!
  2. Service: The bride also told me that as soon as she cut into the cake, it disappeared and no one got to eat her cake! They told her that as a Mexican tradition, the couple cuts and serves their guests and it is not the responsibility of the kitchen!
  3. Taste: Bland you say? I have chosen to go with vanilla sponge and vanilla filling. When I did my site inspection, the WC said that vanilla was the most popular of them all. What flavor did you have?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
