2013 Gran Caribe Real/ Royal Cancun Brides

Recommended Posts

Hi Cherbear, I believe it is a recognized by the Catholic Church. You have to get paperwork signed by your priest at your church at home giving permission for you to marry outside of your church.

Thanks Emily! I was wondering if anyone out there is planning to have a private reception on the beach.  I can't seem to find any pictures online on how they set it up.  I've heard they do a great job but I want to see pics before I put my deposit down.  I emailed the WC for pics but still waiting to hear back.  If anyone has pics, can you please post them?  Thanks!! :)

I did see a few wedding on the beach while we were there. I don't have any pictures unfortunately, but I thought they were set up very nicely. I received my save the dates today! I'll post a picture soon. Still getting all of our addresses together and planning to send them out in the next few weeks!

I have a question about the wedding packages. Looking to do the complimentary wedding package, since we would apply and then have some add ons like the brides bouquet, cake and a private wedding reception.

 

Anyone know how that would work and what the cost would be?? I am trying to figure it out on the website but I don't think certain things are working :-S

 

Also, if we are doing a symbolic ceremony, do you have to pay for an officiant?

 

I hope someone can help clear up things for me...

I just discovered this website and after 20 min I love it! So much great information.

We are looking to plan a wedding at the Royal in Playa del Carmen. I have the same questions as mizpriya. Do we have to pay the $600 for the officiant if we are just doing a symbolic wedding? Also are the wedding packages even worth it. I'm thinking of going with the free wedding package and just doing add ons. Any advice would be great, as I am at the very beginning of my wedding planning and can take any advise!

That's what I was thinking as well clarissalu3.

 

I wanted to go with just the free wedding and then add on as we might have anywhere from 30 to 35 guests coming with us. I'm not sure what the cost difference would be. Like I can skip out on the bouquet (I am planning on using someting else), my FI doesn't want a boutinierre, don't really care too much for a mani-pedi with the resort and I have friends who are makeup artists and hairstylists. The massages would be nice, a cake and a private reception are my main things that we want for the wedding.

 

I really want to get this clarified as I am not really getting much from the website...

Hi welcome! What I did was click on the a la carte wedding option and it goes through each category with pictures and prices. Then just don't actually go through with it at the end.

Hi I just returned from my wedding 02/14/12 I had a small beach symbolic/religious ceremony and a private reception on the beach too. I have pics up on my face book. I don't know how to post them to the thread or write a review yet. My photographer did an amazing job. let me know if you have any questions.

My face book is under my email Rebeca_steele@yahoo.com

    • 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?
