Hi all,

I am doing a Beautiful Beginnings wedding and am thinking about location. I like the pier or reef terrace gazebo but would be interested to know if the canopy for the beach could be used at an a la carte price, without upgrading to a costly package. Does anyone know if this is possible and what the price might be? Also, I am getting married at SGOR and I know the beach is on the small side. Does anyone know how private an 11am ceremony could possibly be if I did decide to go beachside? Thanks all!

There will be a la carte options coming soon but I'm not sure when exactly. My WC in Miami mentioned it vaguely last month and TA Jennifer on this board also made mention there are upgrade options coming. Hopefully she'll chime in with some good news for us Sandals brides!

I received a little bit of information from my Miami WC coordinator today. She was vague but I figured I'd share anyway.


I questioned what is available for a la carte options and asked for a photo listing with prices. Amy (aka Tabia) said we can choose anything that is shown on the website in each package and request a specific quote for what we want to upgrade to. The only thing she gave me a price on was the Vision in White arch for the ceremony...$600!!! She also sent me a picture of it. In my opinion, the quality doesn't appear to be worth that kind of money, especially if I'll only be using it for 15-20 minutes. I didn't even ask about upgrading flowers but I've read upgraded bouquets are running upwards of $300.


Keep in mind this is specific for Sandals Royal Caribbean. I'm not sure if the prices will be different at any of the other resorts.


At this point, I'm planning on not upgrading anything and relying on the natural setting to be decoration enough. If there is something I want when I get there, great. If not, that's fine too.


Sorry ladies, I know it's not much info! I was hoping for more but I'm learning to not expect much until I arrive in Jamaica.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
