I didn't see a thread started for brides getting married at the Royalton Riviera Cancun in 2016/2017 so I figured I would start one! 

 

I figured this would be a great way for each other to compare notes, and answer each others questions. 

 

I'm just finalizing booking with Luxe Weddings and am planning on booking the Royalton Riviera Cancun for May 2017!

 

I'm looking at either getting married on the beach, or the Sky Deck, followed by a reception at the Nautica Beach Bar, or directly on the beach!

 

What are you guys doing??

@melanderic2017  Congrats on planning your DW! There was a bride that was married there just this past October. You could have a look through her thread and see if there is anything there that will help you out. It's not that long ago and that resort hasn't been open very long so all of the info will be pretty recent. I started the thread below when I first found the resort but it has been added to quite a bit. It's worth a read.

 

Good luck!

Hey Mel!

Thank you for this. my wedding is booked for January 2017. I am planning on having the ceremony in the chapel and reception on the terrace, but our guest count is increasing so I am thinking maybe switching the ceremony to the terrace and having the reception inside one of the ballrooms. We are going to do a site visit next month which includes a tour and menu tastings, I'm sure we'll know by then.

I posted on the last thread about a week ago and no one responded so I guess that thread died out. My question was for the brides who already had their weddings there though. I was wondering about budgets and any surprise/hidden fees.

Hey LJGray,

 

I have officially booked my wedding date of May 9th, 2017! We'll be leaving Montreal and Toronto on May 6th, and returning on May 13th  :)

 

I booked my wedding directly with Luxe Destination Weddings so they've been pretty much holding the reigns of the planning, which I love, since I plan weddings for a living. I want someone to take care of it for me!!

 

We're likely doing a beach wedding, followed by a reception at the Nautica Beach Bar. I can't seem to find many pictures of a dinner/dance type of setup at the beach bar but I've been stalking instagram and facebook for other brides pictures haha.

Let me know if you find anything!!

 

Other than that, I get to start planning the actual wedding details starting on Monday, when I have the first phone call with the actual "wedding planner" from Luxe. I've only been dealing with a travel agent so far, who helped me pick the venue.

 

Where are you leaving from? Do you have dates decided yet? Looking forward to the journey, feel free to reach out with any questions or your feedback too.

Hi,

 

I'm glad I've found someone else who is getting married there the same month :)

 

We are flying from London Stansted on 17th May, so we wont be there the same time. We have booked through a british travel agent who is dealing with the wedding as they have a weddings team. I have been told I may have to wait up to 8 weeks to have the date confirmed. Did you get the date you wanted?

 

Are you having a civil ceremony? As I've been told you need to be there 3 business days before not including date of arrival.

 

I'm torn between the beach wedding or having it in the Chapel. I've been stalking the internet for photographers websites who have posted peoples wedding pics online. I was initially put off by the beach as friends have said that your surrounded by sunbathers but the pictures I've seen of the weddings at this hotel it looks a bit more private. Where have you found pictures??

 

I've had some correspondence direct with the hotel, they sent me through all of the information available. All the pricelists and everything :) Let me know if you want anything and how your planning is going also :)

I'm considering doing the same line up - beach ceremony and reception at the beach bar. How much was the location fees for the beach and beach bar? You have to pay the location fee plus the per person private dinner menu plus any decor/setup right?

I think the beach bar would look beautiful with some string lights over head and some long farmer tables depending on how many people you're expecting - or at least that's my vision haha!  :D

I've had some luck finding some pictures with some google searches of the beach setups. I'll be talking to my planner about putting me in the most secluded location of the beach! It looks like this resort's beach is vast, and since there's no neighbouring resorts, as well as they put the location pretty close to the water, so you don't have people walking right behind your wedding ceremony (that would be the worst...)

 

I'm also just doing a symbolic ceremony. I don't want to deal with all of this blood work they ask for. Not my idea of a great start to a vacation lol. I've found a few pictures from another bride on this website, and instagram had a couple. Search #RoyaltonRivieraCancun or #royaltonriviera or #royaltoncancun ... You can also search under "places" in instagram and look for the resort name! I've also just done some general google searching.

 

I've got all the price-lists now which is awesome!! I'll let you know if there's anything I want to double check too. Vice Versa :)

I'm considering doing the same line up - beach ceremony and reception at the beach bar. How much was the location fees for the beach and beach bar? You have to pay the location fee plus the per person private dinner menu plus any decor/setup right?

Hey!! You don't have to pay extra for a beach ceremony at all actually. For the beach bar, all you're paying for is the per-person private dinner fee, which includes 3 hours of open bar. Additional fee applies to extend your open bar which the latest it can be open is 11pm. (I'm opting for a 7pm reception, and extending the open bar for 1 more hour, so it goes to 11). The only extra fees for the venue would be the Sky Deck. I believe its $1500USD right now.

 

String lights would be gorgeous. I like round tables for seating, with a nice head table. We're expecting about 40 I think :) I'm planning on a Dark Greyish Navy colour, with dark coral pink and some yellow accents for my wedding colours!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
