Hello Ladies! Need Some help from Previous WonderBrides - THE ROYAL PDC

Recommended Posts

Hi Brides,


I got engaged in July 2012 and I'm getting a head start on my Feb 2014 wedding. I think (after much trawling and thread reading) that I've decided on The Royal Playa Del Carmen for my wedding. I had research venues in California and Florida and have gone out of my way to see them... let's just say it was very stressful and disappointing... especially with my mother's 'help'. After umming and ahhing about it, I discussed it with my fiance and decided to do what WE obviously, and not try to please everyone. I chose Mexico as it is in the middle-ish, we have family coming from the East Coast, West Coast and England.


I spent countless hours looking at places, getting stressed and confused, constantly getting that knot in my stomach. But when I found this site it was like my saving grace. I can't tell you how much you brides have all helped me!!! THANK YOU a million times over!!


I have found a TA, I am using Wendy from Wright Travel (again, thanks to recommendations), and am going to have a go-see/mini vacay in January with my Fi. I am so excited!! I hope I am as happy when I get there as I have been when looking at all of your pictures.


Does anyone have anything that they wish they had known to ask for before booking? Any hidden costs? Anything to negotiate?


Likewise, If anyone has any definite NO-NO's when it comes to the Royal, please let me know, I want to go armed with as much info as I can!!


Which areas did you choose to have your Ceremony/Cccktail Hour/Reception and WHY? Is there anything you would have changed?


Also, if anyone is willing to share the cost, quality and conditions of their photography packages I would be eternally grateful!


Thanks again,

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
