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'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?
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!
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!
