    Hello Everyone!

     

    Hope all is well!  Planning to book my wedding at the Royalton Riviera Cancun for January 2018!   Me and my partner (Logan) have been together for about 8 years and looking forward to finally tie the knot.   We are looking to have about 30-40 guests.    We are thinking of having the Sky Terrace and cocktail hour in early afternoon and then having the reception dinner on the Beach around 7pm.   Just in the process of confirming the flight/hotel and will go from there. 

     

    Looks forward to talking and hearing from you all.

     

    Cheers,

    Carl

      Hi Ladies!

       

      I'm jumping on board.  I'm getting married at the Royalton on April 18, 2017! Soooo super excited, but getting really nervous that I can't plan anything!

      I've already taken some notes from you guys that have planned.  Thanks for your input!

      Hi Tina! 

       

      Let me know if there's anything I might be able to help with. I've been working on my wedding there for a while with Luxe Destination Weddings, and they've been super helpful to give me a full quote in advance :) So I have the full breakdown in my pricing! 

       

      Good luck, it's right around the corner now!!

       

      Melanie

      Are you getting pricing from your Royalton Planner? I have Randi and while she's great and answers all my emails same day, she told me she can't give me ANY pricing for decor/florals/add ons for May until January rolls around! Grrrrr
       
      I'm using my semi private dinner for a post wedding brunch instead :) We are renting a private catamaran for the day before the wedding and I'll probably have around 30 ppl TOPS at the wedding so I don't feel pressured for a rehearsal dinner and like the idea of brunch. 
       
      Planning on bringing a few boxes of string lights from home. I've heard its about $150-200 per string to rent which is soooo not happening. I asked if I could bring my own and they said I totally can and would just have to pay a small set up fee. Target has 20 feet long lights for $12 a box so I'm waiting for Randi to send me the dimensions of the beach bar to find out how many boxes to buy! She also sent me dimensions to all the table shapes and sizes. I think I want to go with rectangular tables for the reception and long greenery garlands with tealight candles spread throughout for our 'centerpieces'. 
       
      I think I'm going with faux flowers for the wedding/reception. It kills me a little inside but most of the flowers I have my heart set on (peonies, ranunculus, eucalyptus - I love that lots of greenery and fluffy white flower boho look) aren't easily available in the area. I've found alot of sellers of real touch flowers on Etsy but some of the prices are even more expensive than fresh florals.... I'm still back and forth with it. 
       
      We hired Kape Photography for our photos! The contracted photographer was soooo not our style. She is charging us $2400 for 8 hours. Then there's the outside vendor fee... She says there is ways around it or we can negotiate it down with the hotel (she has shot at the Royalton before) but I'm a total chicken about having her just show up at the wedding with a day pass and hope no one says anything  :D I think we will just pay for her room for 3 nights under our room block. It works out cheaper than the $850 vendor fee. Hoping to negotiate it down to 2 nights though lol. BUT last week we took engagement photos with Hideki of Button Up photography in NYC!! He held a contest on his IG for a free shoot while he was in NYC and I happened to win. We considered him for the wedding as well but he was alittle pricier and him and Kape Photography had very similar styles so we went with the cheaper obviously (He charges around $3500 for 8 hours, still not bad). If anyone is looking for a photographer I'd highly recommend him! The sneak peaks of our pictures have been gorgeous so far and he was the sweetest guy ever. Even my fiance said he wishes he could go back and higher him for the wedding. But I'm super happy with Karla's work as well and know she'll do an awesome job for the wedding! Glad we're able to work with both photographer's we liked  :)


      That's a great idea for the string lights. We wanted to use those as well but I'm thinking about maybe opting for more candles. My wedding planner did say that the beach bar is well lit.

      I also think I'm going to do faux flowers as I want flower runners too. I'm actually thinking about making them and bringing them in my luggage.

      We are using Elvis Alceff as our photographer he was $1600 for 8 hours. Hoping that we can also negotiate the number of room days.

      Can you send me an email with the table dimensions as well as the dimensions of the beach bar if you have it. I want to figure out my table arrangements. DivineStarr84@gmail.com

        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??

        I'm getting married at May 17' at The Royalton as well! Maybe we will run into one another. My day is the 14th with a beach wedding then the Nautica bar.


        Hi,

         

        Have you managed to book your wedding date in May 2017 yet??

         

        I have booked our accommodation but currently awaiting confirmation from our Travel Agent of our confirmation wedding date. We have also booked in May 2017 too??

         

        Looking at either getting married on the beach or chapel and then a reception on the beach or the beach bar.

         

        Would be fab to know how you are getting on??

         

        xx

        I'm booked for May 14, 17 on the beach and Nautica bar. All is well but no final amounts closer to January but I should be receiving a rough estimate shortly. Not all guests have booked (maybe about 2/3) so its hard to finalize things at this point.

        Congrats on your big day!! My last day at the resort is May 13th, but who knows we might cross paths! Looks like there's a ton of brides that week, let's all say hi to each other on our wedding days ;) My wedding date is May 9th - Beach ceremony, followed by the Nautica beach bar!

          Hi ladies,
          I am so glad to find this forum! I feel like info is limited until four months out from my date, June 13, 2017, so it's nice to be able to hear how everyone's planning has been going. I am really struggling with either brining most of the decor myself or just letting them spearhead everything. Like another girl mentioned they welcome you to bring your own stuff and will charge a set up fee. I worry because of the amount of stuff I want to bring and if the overage in luggage and the entire hassle plus the said set up cost will result me spending more than just having them do everything.
          Any insight?

          Also, I wonder how flex they are with mix and matching menus. There are apps from the cocktail hour menus that I saw, which I want to add to my reception dinner. We are opting for Family style.

          Congrats Valerie!!! I found that working with a destination wedding planning company, I was able to get all of my details and pricing in advance, which is a blessing in disguise! 

           

          I know that I ended up asking for a custom menu in regards to wanting the Mexican Family Style menu, served as a plated, and they were able to give me pricing. So I imagine if it's something they already have or make, that you may be able to incorporate it into your menu. It may not be the same price obviously, since an hors d'oeuvre size is totally different than a starter course for a meal :) Hopefully that helps!
