I don't think they let you go beyond 10 at the terrace. Most of my guests just took over the lobby bar afterwards. 10 was a good time to stop. Some of my guests were already pretty drunk and whoever didn't want to retire for the night just stayed in the lobby bar to socialize.

BTW how did you get your reception to start at 7? Mine started at 6. Are you having a cocktails for 2 hours?

I get married June 18 2014 at the royal. Any advice or suggestions as I am finalizing my planning?

Get a reservation at Chef's plate as soon as you arrive. It's yummy and fancy dining.

Do you know what's the maximum of people to make a reservation in chefs plate? Like how many can we have sitting together?

Hi everyone!

 

So my wedding is about 2 months away. I'm in the process of picking cocktail hr food and also main entree food! Can anyone that has already had their wedding give me any input on the good and bad? Thanks!

My guests raved about the salmon and eggplant dishes. I was not a fan of the beef though :( for main entrees.

I had 3 tiers and a different flavor for each tier= vanilla, coffee and hazelnut. My guests loved the cake.

Do NOT get the Mango float au tequilla for dessert. Terrible. 

The beef medallion and chicken (I forgot) were ok but boring.

Soup was clam chowder, that was good. The salad was alright.. nothing special.

No, I don't know :( We moved to the Hyatt after the wedding, so it was just my husband and myself :) It was a very small place though.  I would say 12-14 people would fit.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
