Wedding at The Royal in Cancun, June 2012

Recommended Posts

I second this....there is no getting out of the vendor fees. I booked SpaZul for hair and make up because I refused to pay $350. I am crossing my fingers and hope all turns out well.

Remember this though - you have to give name of guests that are non Real guests.  They check ID's before they are allowed entrance and given bands.  The staff there at the resort are very well aware of all the vendors, etc. When our photographer showed up the bell boys knew his name immediately, they checked list showing we had paid our fee, then cleared him. I would just hate to see you have the stress of them not getting in on your big day.  They seem to have pretty well covered all ways around you avoiding vendor fees if you use anyone other than their choice. My advice - don't chance it:(

 

Sorry - just trying to be honest and help you out.

Just a quick update...I used SpaZul for myself and my maid of honor. I was very skeptical and even more when I saw the stylist. (I believe her name was Elvira.) However, after it was finished, my makeup looked great and lasted through the humidity. My photographer had us walk about a half mile down the beach to take pictures but you couldn't tell I was sweating my butt off. As for hair, I have really thick hair and decided to pull it up in curls. She used about 100 bobby pins to hold the curls and it really looked beautiful for a while. To be honest, nothing can last through the humidity and wind.

 

Anyway, I had a good experience with the ladies in the spa and I don't regret not shelling out an additional $350 just to have my hair and make up done.

 

Here are a couple of pics.

 

The flakes in my hair is actually glitter she dusted on me. It looked good in person and in the light but didn't quite translate on the camera. lol

I did not use my own makeup. The spa uses a professional french line of cosmetics which is very good. I verified it with a friend that is a make up artist. I did show her an example of hair and make up with some additional explanation. For instance, I wanted my hair to sit up a little higher so that the veil would stay in the middle of head. She did not use the exact same colors for eye make up but she was trying to find what she felt was most flattering. She would look through the palette and color pots and look at me. If you want something specific, just tell them.

I just got back from my wedding at the Royal in Cancun! If anyone has any questions please let me know.

 

Small tip for those wanting a private reception with under 35 guests. I had 30 and we got married on the beach (I highly recommend- your pictures come out GOREGOUS with that blue ocean color). It was supposed to rain that evening so we moved our reception inside to the REAL Club on the second floor of the Royal Cancun. It was PERFECT for our size group. It has a great little terrace for a cocktail hour outside and then the dinner and party is set up inside.

 

At first I really wanted my reception outside on a rooftop terrace, but really the A/C after being outside ALL the time was a blessing. I am glad it worked out the way it did but I just wanted to share because they never told me about the REAL club while I was planning. I would have chosen that option because ithas outdoor space overlooking the bay and an indoor space that is perfect for a smaller group.

 

Let me know if you want to see any pictures of the room

    • 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?
