Hey Bosi!


I just wanted to touch base - although the resort said sold out I was able to get you a room twice when you asked me too and had it held for a week both times pulling special favors - but you never responded to my Pm's nor emailed me directly. Not sure if you still needed it or if I can pull it off again but please email me directly so I know what is up!

Hi there,


I am getting married at the Royal Caribbean w/Private Island resort on May 22, 2010... I have 10-12 people (us included) going. I wanted to find out from previous Sandals wedding experience if you HAVE to pay the extra costs for additional ppl at your "cake cutting/reception" or if you can just order champagne from the bar ahead of time and have one of your bridesmades bring it to the private area where you cut your cake. Something about paying extra to have drinks and some finger food doesnt seem right to me being that we are paying for our guests to come to our "all inclusive" wedding. I dont want to cheap out but it isnt cheap when you are paying for immediate family to attend your wedding for 4 nights..... Any suggestions on how to have a sit down dinner / reception at a restaurant or having champagne at the cake cutting,etc would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Andrea,


We booked the DJ at our wedding and to me it was worth the $600 due to the size of our group. We had a blast!! The DJ kept saying that this was going to be the last song and ended up playing four or five more songs after that. They cleared a area at the front of the ballroom for dancing. It was enough space for everyone to move! Our wedding coordinator introduced us as husband and wife.


Hope this helps!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
