Just Became a Royal Cancun Bride and I already need your help:)

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies:)

 

Although I have been lurking around this site for a few months, it wasn't until about ten minutes ago that I became an official Royal Cancun bride! I am sooooo excited!! My fiance and I will be getting married on April 22, 2012 (our seven year anniversary!)

 

Even though I literally just put down the deposit, I am already wondering if I made my first mistake.. We really want our ceremony to take place just as the sun is setting and its a bit on the "cooler" outside.. The wedding coordinator advised me that my requested time of 5:00 would be too late and that by the time the ceremony would be over it would be too dark to take pictures... So we now have a 4:00 ceremony.. Which I feel is so early..

 

I have checked the sunset times for April and on average its about 530pm... Now I am just confused.. HELP!

 

Would a 5:00 ceremony be too late?

Hi!  I'm a Royal Cancun bride and have had the most awful experience. I advise that you make all of your decisions early, and get the contract locked up.

 

I went out to do my site visit 10/28/10, and immediately, while still on hotel property emailed my coordinator all of our questions, and desired locations for all events.

 

I never heard back for 2 months.  Finally heard back, and then we went back and forth on quite a bit.  DO NOT let them push you around on only serving one meal, or crap like that.

 

Either way, we were finally ready to get the contract signed, I thought I had everything nailed down, down the the menu, and while I was told things were reserved, they weren't and hadn't been since NOVEMBER!  I just found out about this last week, so we're basically having to start all over.  We're getting married at the chapel at the Gran Caribe at 5 on June 6th, but don't really have much else.  Well, we do have about 80 people booked for the wedding so that's a plus. Now I just need to know where to put them.

 

I've gone through the ringer with them, so PLEASE reach out if you have any issues or need any advice.  Also, calling them is WAY better that doing things over email. We learned the hard way.

 

It's a beautiful resort, and I know everything is going to turn out absolutely beautifully for your wedding.  Just don't want you to make the same mistakes I did!!!!

 

Congratulations!

 

Melissa

KathyW-- I am so excited for you..! I can't wait until I am only weeks away until my wedding.. I would be so grateful for any news and advice you bring back from your wedding! I have been peaking in on the beach webcam around 5:00 to see exactly how the sun is setting.. My fiance thinks I am crazy.. LOL.. We are having a beach ceremony at The Royal, followed by our cocktail hour by the gazebo and our reception at Villas Terrace at The Gran.. Were hoping to do a site visit this summer but prices are so expensive=/ I would love any pics or insight that you may have..

 

Melissa- I am so sorry for your bad experiences:( Crossing my fingers that things will be less stress-free from this point on.. So far, we have signed the wedding contract.. My WC (Angie S.) set up the basecamp account and was pretty good with responding to my questions.. BUT.. two weeks ago I sent her an entire list of questions and she has yet to respond to me.. I had read from other ladies how horrible their WC's were during the planning process and I thought I got lucky with Angie.. I emailed her again this past Friday and she emailed me back immediately saying that she was very sorry and that she was going to be completely honest with me that she is extremely busy planning this April/May weddings and that she would get back to me over the weekend.. It's now Thursday and still no response... I completely understand she is busy and I don't want to get all psycho bridezilla, but I do want to just get certain things out of the way..

 

I am glad you brought up the menu.. At first she told me that I was only allowed to pick one entree (which is completely ridiculous) and after begging her she finally allowed two... But my fiance is really unhappy about it (rightfully so) and doesn't understand why we can't be allowed three options, if we are going to keep track of everything and make the place cards.. How did you handle this situation? I would love any advice! I will private message you if I think of anything.. I hope thats okay!!

 

 

 

Congrats to you both!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
