The Royal Cancun

Recommended Posts

Congrats!!! I'm getting married at a Real Resort too!  Gran Porto Real in Playa - June 2.

 

I'm using Terrah at Legacy Travel. She is truly awesome. One thing I love is they give you a website too keep up with the guests. When they arrive and when they depart...

The guest only need $200 to lock in their rooms and payment in full is not due until a month before departure.

 

We did not block off rooms because if my guests find a better deal elsewhere, Terrah will match that offer.

 

Here is our travel website and her number is included.

The resort flowers are really pricey. I'm going the non floral route.

 

The resort quoted me $60/table that looked like crap. I am doing my own for about $17/table.

soooo... i was wondering.. Im debating on wether using SPazul for hair and makeup.. or hiring outside vendor.. problem is i really really wouldnt want to pay $350 just to have someone do that!! that sounds crazy to me... anyone had bad or good experience with spazul. also did you reall yhave to pay the vendor fee or a day pass??

 

Also .. i contacted my WC and she told me if i wanted to have photography and videography wether its by the same person or not i have to pay double!!! thats crazy too!! if the same vendor is providing both photo and video why do i need to pay an extra $350!.. anyone encountered this?..Im really starting to get annoyed with all these fees!!! cuz the fee itself is soo high.. other resorts are like 100.. that sounds more reasonable considering all my guest are staying at Real Resort..wtf.gif

Happy planning all!!! Just returned from my fabulous destination wedding!!! both the Royal and Gran Caribe are amazing.

I was very happy with the wedding coordinator Elizabeth at the resort and Marianna at the Spa.

My photographer did an amazing job and am super pleased with his work, he edited my pictures and had them ready before I left Mexico! Not many of the big companies do that. They usually take several months. Feel free to look at my photos on Face book - email is Rebeca_Steele@yahoo.com.

 

my photographer is Nestor nestorfotografia@gmail.com he is super reasonable and just amazing!!!!!

 

I used him for my engagement pics in cancun and then hired him for the wedding through email !!!!

I'm pretty sure there's a forum for the questions I'm about to ask but I simply can not find them.  I'm attempting to plan a wedding in Cancun Mexico.  I say attempting because right now I have no clue what I'm doing.  So I thought having a destination wedding would be less fuss, easy breezy!  Well, so far it has been hard not knowing what the end product is going to look like.  I'm hoping there are other brides on this site that are going through the same thing or have already experienced having a wedding at this particular resort. I have a few questions:

 

1: Whose the photographer for the Royal Cancun?

2: Will I be able to taste my cake before I have to decide? Does the cake taste good?

3: Will I be able to taste the food before I have to decide?

4: Does the resort have a vendors list?

5: Do you make all the decisions when you get to the resort?

6: Where can you get hair & makeup other than their spa?

7: Are there any real pictures of weddings for this resort?

 

Well i got married next door at the Gran Caribe Real- I don't think things are too different.

Funever photos is the photographer and honestly I wasn't pleased with there photos. I used a photographer i met when I got engaged in Cancun and set everything thing up through email. He was amazing .. has all pics edited and done before I left Mexico....you can check out my face book  Rebeca_Steele@yahoo.com for his work and he can be reached at Nestorfotografia@gmail.com.

 

I had the vanilla cake and it was delicious.

When I got to the resort a lot of the things were verified and decisions finalized. I had Elizabeth as my WC, she was awesome.

    • 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?
