Hi There! Just joined this forum, I'm looking for info on how soon we should be booking our preferred wedding date and do we do it directly with the resort? We were hoping for April 2019 as we just decided on a destination wedding, originally were looking at Cabo as we travel there quite often but friends suggested we look at Royalton Riveira Maya and it looks like a fantastic venue for our wedding!! Any help/ suggestions would be appreciated!

Also when you block your rooms do you do that through your TA or do I contact the resort directly? Feeling so out to lunch with all this and it's only the beginning!

Congratulations Jenn & welcome to the BDW forum!! Royalton Riviera Cancun is an awesome resort and has something for everyone. It's family friendly, has The Hideaway for adults only, great restaurants, spa, nightlife and more. 

 

I highly recommend using a travel agent for your group block. A TA will typically get the best rates for your group and will provide personalized service for your guests. 

 

Wright Travel Agency is the official BDW travel agency. All agents are destination wedding specialists, do not charge any additional service fees and would be happy to answer any questions you have and get the planning process started.

Hi Jenn,

TA Wendy here! I second what TA Patty has stated. The Royalton is a great property. In a great location, with easy arrival and departure transfers to the airport included with your group package. The property has an Adults only section for those who wish to be apart from the family friendly side of the resort.

They have some great wedding locations and their wedding department has proven to be helpful and willing to work with couples to make the wedding day magical!

The restaurants are excellent and the buffet is like no other in size and variety of goodies!

To answer your question about the rooms/ vs the wedding day itself, often couples choose to book their actual wedding, and work with an on site wedding coordinator at the resort pertaining to the details of the wedding... flowers, colors, linens, etc.

We CAN also assist in getting your wedding date booked for you if you are in need of a bit of help.

As TAs who specialize in Destination Weddings, we at Wright Travel would be of the biggest help to you with blocking your rooms, speaking with your guests, taking everyone's payments, arranging transfers, (and air if needed), and delivering your documents.

We also can offer some nice group incentives for you as bride and groom, and we are happy to explain the process.

Just click above and fill out a "Contact Me" form and one of our Wright Travel Agents will be right back in touch with you!!

All the best for your engagement and planning!

TA Wendy

Hello there,

 

I am a fellow Royalton bride! I am getting married February 14, 2019. I confirmed my date directly with the resort about six months ago, I recommend you do it sooner than later if you want your ceremony/reception in a certain location ( I am in love with the sky terrace ) because they do book up. I also recommend booking your room block with a travel agent because they can get you extra perks depending on how many people you book. I can give you my TAs info if you want, I love her! Another big help along this journey has been joining the Facebook group 'Royalton Riviera Cancun Brides 2017/2018' It is a group of past, present, and future brides full of advice. Let me know if you have any questions and happy planning!

I’m a July 2018 bride. Congrats!!! I used Raylene at Ever After TA to find the perfect venue. I ended up choosing Royalton Riviera and I am definitely happy I did. We are a little over 100 days out and I have 70 guests booked and all the details planned out with the resort. So I guess I’m just sitting back at this point looking for makeup ideas. Definitely use a TA for the room blocks. Mine made a website for us and was there for me every step of the way. She was in constant contact with me and gave the best advice. This hotel has wedding written all over it. I feel so lucky that I get to have my wedding there. Their packages are awesome.

    • Hello Everyone I am asking this question to have an important decision about wedding catering business which my friend suggested to do. But I am confused about whether I should go for it or not. As every business has its pros and cons. Does anyone know or does anyone have any idea about catering business or what challanges I would face while operating a catering business. I even have gone through few websites which I though that can be a good suggestion to go for a catering business. I have listed a few websites here please have a look once and let me know which website  Brisbane Catering  
    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel
