Ceremony and Reception location!! HELP!!

Recommended Posts

Hi brides, brides-to-be, and wedding lovers,


My fiance and I are planning to have our wedding at The Royal in PDC since it's consistently been ranked as having the best wedding packages among the hotels in PDC.


For those who have had their weddings/ have attended weddings at The Royal, I'd like to ask for your advice on WHERE we should hold our ceremony and reception.




I love the beach, and I would love to have the ceremony by the beach. However, I'm worried about the lack of privacy as some non-wedding guests might be seen in photos.


The gazebo would seem ideal for privacy purposes, but I feel like I wouldn't be making the most out of the Caribbean feel if we just had it on the gazebo.




Semi-private vs. private?

Welcome. Try searching for the resort specific thread.  You will be able to find past and present brides who will be able to answer all your questions.  Good luck with your wedding planning!

Congrats and welcome!  For me, I found that it was more important to me to get married on the beach then to worry about people in the background.  But I didn't have any topless or embarrassing nono-guests photo-bombing my pictures.  If I had, maybe I'd have felt differently.


And for the reception, I def suggest private.

If you really want to get married on the beach but want the privacy I would ask the wedding planner what the best time is. We asked our planner and she said 5pm as most people are getting ready for dinner and there are few people on the beach.


Just a thought :)

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
