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!


Ahhh okay. I remember seeing a location fee of $300 on my paperwork but now that I look again you only have to pay that for events without food.

Those colors sound gorgeous together! I'm opting for an all baby's breath wedding with pops of coral and gold. I like rustic simple decor. I'm looking at the first and second week of May right now! Just waiting to hear back from the planner about what date the beach is available for a 5pm ceremony and beach bar available for the reception (I originally wanted May 5 but the beach is only available for 3pm and I don't want my guests to wait 4 hours for dinner!). So we might be crossing paths depending on our wedding date!! :)

Ohhh well, I know that apparently May 8th is booked for every time slot apparently, and I'm booked on May 9th! Looks like there's a chance we will. We'll have to connect and have a drink if we end up being there at the same time :)
Totally keep me updated!
Love the rustic feel! Never been a fan of baby's breath but I know a lot of people love it!!
I just love that you don't have to rent a dance floor with the beach bar. Saves so much money.
Where are you flying out from?

For sure we definitely will! I'm from NJ here in the states so I'll probably be flying out of NYC. My guests are from all over the east coast so figured it would be easy for them to find affordable nonstop flights into CUN. We're still tossed up between extending our stay in the resort we get married at or flying across Mexico to Puerto Vallarta after the wedding and having a 3-4 day "mini-moon" away from the family LOL

 

Btw did you block rooms out yet or are you having everyone make their own arrangements? I'm a TA myself and I'm so up in the air about this because I don't want to have to book all my family and friends myself.

That's fair! The planning agency I chose is being paid to do all that. Taking care of the planning, and booking my guests!!! I just don't want the pressure of everyone asking me a million questions I can't answer haha. I plan events for a living so this time it's not my job to do it ;)
I had a block of rooms and airplane seats blocked for a deposit, and they take care of the rest! Only catch is they can't take advantage of those last minute sales if bookings are within the block. But at least this way I do get a credit for each 7 guests that book!

Hey Ladies,

I'm also getting married at the Royalton in May 2017. The 19th to be exact we are having our ceremony at the Chapel and reception at the Sky terrace. So happy to have found this new thread. The old one seems to have gone dead.

I put my deposit down for May 7th (first two weeks were almost totally booked for the beach bar and my preferred ceremony time on the beach! - we chose to just pay the extra $ and do a Sunday wedding) so we will definitely be running into each other, ahhhh! ONE YEAR! I'm working on a room block this week, waiting to hear back from the TA about the rates. I think I'm just going to block 10 rooms to be safe since I have to send out STDs now and I want my immediate family to get their deposits down early.

What type of credit do you get for each 7 guests? I can't find the Royalton's group booking perks anywhere!

Yay congrats!! Can't believe how many of us are may 2017 brides!! Looks like it's the best year to go ;)

No way! This is exciting. I may just have to snoop on your wedding before mine to see how everything looks haha!! We must have a celebratory drink! What day do you arrive at the resort?

I get a credit for every 8th person. Value of flight and accommodations, minus taxes and surcharges! We fly with sunwing and I think this is a deal they have with them :) though I'm flying from Canada so it may be a tad different than the states.

Hi Sashloz,

 

How long did you have to wait until your wedding date was confirmed? I have requested the 23rd May, but didn't have to choose my location or anything yet. We are also considering our wedding either in the chapel or on the beach and reception at the beach bar. I'm worried now though, as it seems to be getting booked up and our travel agent have said it could be another 3 weeks before we hear back.

 

Thanks,

 

Lauren

I know I found out the very next day. Not sure why your travel agent has to wait so long.. That's definitely worrying :(

Yikes! I dealt the wedding planners directly. I emailed them over all my documents and deposit. It was confirmed within the hour. I'd recommend dealing with the wedding planning team directly! They always respond same day or next day in the AM and are all very friendly. I'm sure communication will slow alittle bit now that everything is confirmed - they said we'll start finalizing all the small details 4 months prior to the wedding.
