Royal Decameron Brides!

Recommended Posts



I am new to this forum so hello :). I am getting married on July 7th 2013 at the Royal Decameron in Bucerias/Nuevo Vallarta and was wondering what information if any some other current or former brides have! I have been in contact with Claudio the wedding coordinator himself, but I would love to know more about the photography, cake, and the music vendors. And the fireworks as well.


There hasn't been a recent post on this so I was hoping to find someone maybe planning right now and see what their plans/ideas were too! I know I am planning on taking a lot of stuff to the site and leaving it, was wondering if any other brides planned on bringing lots of accessories as well? I am having a purple and pearl theme, so I know I will be bringing lots of pearl accesories as well as purple chair sashes and table runners.

Hi there,


I'm also new to this forum and am getting married at the Royal Decameron in Bucerias next year on April 1st, 2014. I'm also wondering what I should plan to bring for decorations, what the hotel can provide, what can be rented etc...


I was in Mexico this past January, in the Guayabitos area and made an appointment to meet Claudio but sort of stood me up so I met with his boss Ricardo who answered some questions and gave us a tour of the resort. The resort uses "Paparazzi" as their photographer if you book it with them. I ended up booking Photoshoots Vallarta for my photography as they're a bit more my style.


I'm planning on contacting Claudio to find out if i can get the flying Japanese lanterns there, and if they have white paper lanterns with lights in them to decorate the reception area. I have some other ideas for decorations and am hoping that I can get most things there so I don't have to bring everything with me. I haven't decided on the colors for the wedding but I'm leaning towards coral and possibly turquoise. 


The impression that I got from Ricardo is that they are pretty flexible with things so I think they will be pretty easy to work with.

I actually asked about floating lanterns because we wanted to do them, but they aren't allowed because of thier palapas. He is pretty flexible! He told me I could bring whatever decorations I wanted, I am even bringing my own flowers for the centepieces. The only down side is they do not offer much as far as decorating go. They do the ceremony pretty fully as far as I can tell but as far as the reception goes, they really don't have much. They have some pretty white hanging lanterns but that's about it. I am even bringing my own vases. I get to talk to him more next month, you really don't get to plan anything until the month before the wedding, so I am 3 months out and still don't really know a lot of the finer details. They seem to be really well organized and easy to work with. I am just nervous, since this is soo different. I do not know anyone who has had a destination wedding and it really is nerve racking!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
