Hey! I am getting married at The Royal Cancun June 2013. My wedding coordinator is Maritza. I'm thinking about getting married at 2:00 pm on the beach. Any tips or suggestions? Also, I'm super concerned about my hair that day! Has anyone used the hair salon? How was it? I dont want prom hair! lol..I am open to any and all suggestions PLEASE! I'm planning my wedding alone so I need all the help I can get! Thanks, Kellie
Hola Kellie! I've shot at the Royal many times. It's actually one of my favorite hotels to shoot at in Playa, though the beach is very, very public because it's in the center of town. If you are a bit of an exhibitionist then you might find the energy of the public beach, with people walking by, adds to the drama and the party atmosphere. I especially love their beachside receptions. We had our wedding on a public beach in Tulum and had a mayan ceremony. There were actually people in the circle praying for us and participating that we don't know, haha. I'm kind of a theatrical person so I liked that they added to the energy. (I doubt you will have wedding crashes at the Royal though, so don't worry about that!) I will say that 2pm in June will be hot hot hot on the beach. That's pretty much the hottest part of the day, and there will barely be any shade. I recommend scheduling your ceremony for later in the day, like around 5. That way you and your guests won't be boiling in the sun, and your pictures will look much nicer as well because of the flattering angle of the light.
