@@Soon2beMrsJ.....you are right!!! I actually heard from my travel agent that there is a lot more activity and inquiries from family and friends to book their trips...so I am breathing a bit easier.

 

You only have 60 days until your big day so I know you are really excited!!! Don't forget to share pics when you get back!!! :)

I know you were also looking at Iberostar, what made you change your mind?

I'm debating between the two and I really don't know what to do

Hi Ladies!

 

Less than two months away now!!!  So excited!

 

I am picking the menu for my semi-private reception at the Steakhouse.  If any past RWS brides have feedback on the menu selections I would appreciate it. 

 

Really starting to feel nickel & dimed by this resort.  I mean, how do you justify charging per plate to eat at a restaurant that is INCLUDED in the all inclusive package.  I mean, I would understand if it was a private reception with custom menu.  And the flowers?  Need I say more.  Outrageous.  Just sayin'. 

 

Hope planning is going well for everyone :)

@.. any word on your 22page review of Royalton? Just checking on what you had to say and your review would definitely help us all out.

 

THanks

I just got back from our wedding and thought I would let you all know it was absolutely amazing!! We went with the photographer on site - true colours and could not have been happier they did an amazing job!!! We ended up doing the Jamaican experience on the beach and loved it!! If anyone is planning a beach reception - you don't need any extra lights (we got them and it wasn't worth it) also the wedding planners were absolutely amazing!!! The spa did an amazing job on everyone's hair and makeup!!!!

One more thing - make sure to tell your guests that check in is a joke!!!

They have one person at the front checking in the entire group as the rest stand around and chat!! And they screwed up everyone's room!! So be prepared ????

Other then the front desk staff - everyone else was amazing!!

Hi @@ellewis

Congratulations!!!! I'm getting married there in June (yay). I'm also doing the jamaica experience on the beach reception. Did you add any other decor like the dance floor, tent or bamboo structure?

Hi @bryNdee I haven't stayed at the Royalton yet, just visited for a few hours during a site visit so I don't have enough to say for a review. I will after the wedding in a few months!

Hi @ ellewis.. congrats! We are also getting married there in November..can't wait...but also wondering if you added a dance floor for your beach reception and if you enjoyed the food.. we were skeptical of the menu selections... thx

We did not add the dance floor or a tent but I don't really think it's necessary! We all danced and had a blast in the sand! I am actually a really picky eater and found the food to be amazing!! The jerk chicken is to die for and the curried goat was actually delicious (I didn't think it would be) I was very skeptical about the food but everyone enjoyed it!!

If anyone is doing the semi private dinner the best resturant is Zen....food was amazing!!

    • 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.
