Hi all,

 

Just a quick update on the subject of wedding locatons at RRC. I've been in touch with the WC at Royalton to try to finalise the costs/location details etc before sending over our deposit. We ideally wanted to get married on the roof of the Hideaway section which they currently advertise as a wedding location so booked a room in that area for a premium. We are now told that to have it here will cost an additional $1500! This has no added benefit as you still pay for your package cost. As it is just the 2 of us, there are no costs for anything we can think of! Seems a little steep to me so going for chapel location instead which seems overly large for 2 people but hey ho....

Not letting anything put a dampener on our day ????

 

So for all future RRC brides (and grooms) the included locations are Chapel, Beach Gazebo (no pictures anywhere for this) or Main beach but you then have to pay $350 for a structure to be put up.

 

With it being a new resort 'extras' costs are only just being finalised so be prepared for this xx

Help please!!

A few questions to anyone booked to marry here.

1. Do you know if you are allowed to use outside vendors? If so, how much? After looking at the recommended photographer they do not offer many photos unless you upgrade to one of the top packages.

 

2. Does anyone have costs on getting hair and makeup done here?

 

3. I am torn between a legal ceremony or symbolic. The extra cost is $750 plus package (not a lot ) but worried about the time you have to wait for certificate afterwards. What is everyone else doing?

 

Any help would be great xx

Hi Ladies!

 

I am brand new to the forum and am booked at Royalton for Feb 2016! I've never joined anything like this before :)

 

I'm booked with LUXE Destination Weddings and my wedding planner is taking care of everything for me so I am pretty confident everything will be great. It's a little pricier than I was hoping (we booked before pricing came out), but my planner has been there and it seems BEAUTIFUL!

 

Nice to meet you ladies!

Paula

Quick question - I asked Royalton whether we could have someone else come in to do hair/makeup and photos. She said it is $850 per vendor!! This seems very high but wondered if anyone else has had a quote? Other Royalton resorts (in other countries) charge $250-450 am I being totally ripped off?

 

Any help appreciated xx

 Hi, 

 

 I also receive the $850 per vendor quote. I was told if you bring the vendor as a guest for 3 nights they will waive the vendor charge. 

 

I asked because I was interested in bringing our own photographer in. 

 

Hope this helps.

Hey guys,

 

I am getting married in June 2015 (60-70 people) and realized it's definitely much easier to stay with inside vendors due to cost. 

 

I am going to keep the DJ on site and hair/make up through the spa.

 

1. We have chosen to do the private reception vs. semi private (we do not have photos of these spots, please share if you do!)

2. We have chosen sky deck

3. We will be doing the Mexican experience

 

Please let me know if you find anyone that has already had their wedding there or if you can find extra photos or details of the day. It's hard for me to envision! Congrats to you guys!

Thanks for that! At least it wasn't just me. We've decided to stick with the on site photographer as I have a little more info and they actually look pretty good xx

Hi girls! Just wondering: should I be nervous that I haven't heard from the wedding planner yet and received any information? My wedding date is July 11th. When I reserved the day, they said someone would be contacting me to start planning a few months out. I realize that it's still a few months out, but it also seems to be approaching pretty fast to not have any idea of pricing, venues, etc. - except from what I'm finding out on here.

 

When did you guys hear from the wedding coordinator?

    • 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?
