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!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
