    Hello to all the brides!

     

    I'm getting married on June 25th, 2012 at The Royal. The deposit is down, but haven't started communicating with my WC yet. Few things I was told already is that we can't have anything on the beach past 9pm because of the nesting period for turtles. So we'll have to have a reception in one of the ballrooms; not too excited about that. We're planning on hiring an outside photographer but haven't decided on one yet.

     

    Would like to chat with the brides who are getting married around this time to hear what they're planning and how they're making their wedding unique.

     

    Thx, Alma

      Hi!! Congrats on choosing a wedding date!!! I was married at the royal in cancun on 6/21/11....we had a catholic ceremony at the chapel at the gran caribe real....and my cocktails and reception from 5-10pm on the beach at the Royal! I'll be happy to answer any questions for you if you'll like to PM me =)

       

      who told you you couldn't have anything after 9pm on the beach? If anything it is after 10pm due to the noise etc....first time i hear that its bc of the turtles lol.....

            Hi Melissa!

             

            Oh, so fun to find someone who is also getting married at the Royal! Congrats!

             

            Your wedding is on that Saturday then...I'll be there already, we're arriving Thursday, the 21st.

             

            Who is your wedding coordinator that you have been working with? How have you organized your day? My WC is Maritza...We're doing 6pm wedding on the beach, 2 hour cocktail after, and then move into the ballroom cause of the turtles.

             

            I hope we can help each other out..this is quite an experience planning a wedding over e-mail.

             

            Alma

                  Hahah my Fiance and I are arriving on the 21st as well. Perhaps I will see you around the pool? :-)

                   

                  I have been working with Claudy che, but she is going on Maternity leave next week so I will have another wedding coordinator...TBD

                   

                  I have a 5pm ceremony, and then hopefully we are having a cocktail hour on the rooftop of the Caribe. I am not super happy about that because its supposedly a very large space, but they said they can block some of it off so it seems more intimate. I really really reallyyyy wish I did a site visit, because I am worried that it won't be nice up there on the roof. So basically it's a gamble...

                   

                  Which package are you using? Did you get a DJ through the hotel?

                   

                  I read somewhere on here that the Royal is doing a promotion on day-passes 3 for $180 vs 3 for $300. I think I am going to have friends staying at the caribe as well as the Royal. I would like to have them come over and party with me on the Royal side!

                    It sounds like I will see you around the pool. :)

                     

                    I hired DJ Doremixx. He's actually a preferred vendor which is a miracle. Don't even hesitate to hire him, he is the best in Cancun area. And your WC can book him for you.

                     

                    I got the Classic package and then I'll add on what I need onto that. Haven't decided on a photographer yet, still working on that. Will prob go with Gonzalo Nunez if you want to check him out.

                      Just returned from wedding there and can tell you that it is not so much the rooftop terrace is bad  BUT that it has the artificial green grass on it.I would suggest you try the Villa Terrace (oceanview and no carpet) or even the terrace in front of the gazebo for cocktails.
