@Soon2bMrsClark....About 5K...sounds like you are doing exactly what I did....just some words of advice...Punta Cana is HOT! I thought I was going to wear my gown the entire evening however after our vows, the sweat was running down my legs...lol. Dinner was outdoors as well and although the sun went down it was still pretty humid. Everyone changed after dinner and sweated some more at the outdoor dance reception. The lighting was amazing and it was right in between the two pools right off of the beach. The platform was a bit tricky though. I can't count the number of times I kept tripping. ...it's kind of like a broad walk...and difficult to dance on.
I would recommend Coming down a week before the wedding to scope out the scene and locations. I got there two days before and it wasn't enough time.

Yea I get there 3 days before. I hope I can get all the small stuff sorted out once I get there.

@Bigleap35 Under the Sea is at Memories...The ambiance is amazing but the crab cakes are horrible! I only paid for the location fee and one I got there Claribel suggested the event be more private and moved it to the diamond club beach bar. I would ask Laura if you can decide on the open bar Later. It makes no sense you are paying for both. ... When you will probably change the location once you get there.
Btw...I didn't submit my final payment until one week prior to the event.
@Soon2bMrsClark habla espanol? If so good. .. Because while they do speak English they don't comprehend well.
I used the beach gazebo for my ceremony.
Take a list. Work out the small details once you get there.
Oh and which room did you book? There was a lot of check-in issues for my guest. They're "ocean view" rooms are not directly facing the beach. You have to lean forward and turn your head a bit to view the ocean.

Did you wear shoes for the beach ceremony ? I think flip flops and then heels for reception if we don't have it on the beach

Just got back from two weeks at Royalton, and our wedding was May 7. It went very well. Claribel and Yessy are amazing!
We had 48 people in our group, a lot of them booked Ocean View Swim Up, and as those rooms were overbooked, many people were moved to other rooms. I saw very few rooms that could really be classified as "ocean view" anyway.
Overall, awesome experience.

On trip advisor they have also stated that overbooking has been a problem. I hope my group does not run into this because my guest will not be happy.

@Potter8 Congrats on your wedding!
How many guests did you end up having?
I'm seriously condidering this resort for my wedding but nervous about the overbooking issue.
Also, how was the food overall at the resort. One of my main concerns is the food being really good ( if possible)
Also, do you happen to have any advice after actually celebrating your wedding?
Thanks so much!
