November 2011 bride - Royal Playa Del Carmen

Recommended Posts

Hello past brides & brides to be. My FI & I are almost ready to book ou wedding. I have read almost all the posts. Thanks to all of you for sharing!! I just needed clarification on a couple of things and was wondering if anyone ca help.

 

1. The lounge furniture - how much does it cost, I read $200 per 5 pieces? Is it rented from the resort?

2. Is the lite up stage included in the lux pkg?

3. Does the lux pkg mean upto 35 guests included then any guests over & above they charge?

 

Any info at all is greatly appreciated;)

 

Oh anyone else getting married Nov 2011?

 

Debbie & Mark

Hi 82turtles and sarah2012,

 

I ended up posted my question on another fourm and Jesmcan replied. Thanks again Jesmcan!

 

Anyway I wanted to post it here for you in case you missed it.

 

welcome!

 

1. Yes that is correct $200 for 5 pieces, it s rented through the resort, they have their own vendor they work with. Some girls have used outside vendors from Cancun but than you get hit with the $350 outside vendor fee.

 

2. The light up dance floor is not included, but you can rent it for an additional cost with the DJ.

 

3.That is exactly what it means and its the additional cost per guest at the royal or gran porto and than its even more for non resort guests.

 

I was exactly where you are now one year ago. It flys by, I can't believe its only three weeks away. Enjoy every moment.

Also, sorry if this is a silly question-- but outside florists don't count as outside vendors right?  (AKA subject to the outside vendor fee)  I would hope not!

if the florist has to set up anything for the wedding then they will charge you the crazy vendors fee! if they are just dropping stuff off at the front desk for you, then there is no charge! but then again ask you WC because we all get different answers sometimes!

Hey Sarah,

My advice would be to book as soon as you are reasonably able.  I went down to PDC for a scouting trip two weeks ago and thought I was doing it with so much time left for my preferred Nov 2011 date.  Turns out when I checked on availability with their WC, the middle two weeks for Nov 2011 had already been booked!  Luckily I wanted the 5th anyway but still-- crazy!

    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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 :)
