Trouble deciding between The Royal in Cancun and The Royal in Playa del Carmen AND other questions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm a newbie and recently engage. I've been lurking BDW for a couple of months reading advice on destinations and vendors. I mus say you ladies are very resourceful. I'm looking to get married at the end of April in Riviera Maya or Cancun. I think I've narrowed it down to The Royal based off of past bride reviews and TripAdvisor ratings. I'm trying to find a good balance of luxury, service, food, and of course wedding services! The Royal seems to fit the bill but now I cannot choose between Cancun and PDC. For those that have been to both locations, what are the pros and cons of each?


I'm looking for a great beach, fun activities at the resort including some night activities, and nice areas outside the resort. Some people that have been in the area say stay on the resort period but I don't want my guests to be trapped there the entire time. Is it not safe?


Also, I chose the end of April because the weather should be stable and it will be after the universities' spring break and before graduation. Can someone confirm that it's a good time to go?


Thank you in advance for you help!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • 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!
