    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?

        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 :)
