Wow! 51 booked already! That's great! We are planning a small wedding immediate family and our closest friends. We have 30 on our invite list and are expecting 20 or so to book. I'm so excited. Choosing the resort was so stressful, I've spent the last 3 weeks searching forums, reading reviews etc. I really hope the Royalton has space for our wedding. Hoping to get a response today sometime. (We are also booking with Sunwing
We are from Northern Ontario (just outside Sudbury).
Do you mind sending me the information you received fm the resort? I believe I have most of it but I'm not positive. They sent me the wedding packages, and the list of "extras" including flowers and photography.
Email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Just emailed it!
Good luck with planning!
Hello brides to be!
So I thought I would post what recently happened to my wedding date at the Royalton White Sands! Because it’s recently been changed!
We were originally scheduled for Monday, November 17th ceremony and reception on the beach MONTHS AGO! Contract signed, deposit in, STD’s sent out, website up and everything!
My fiancé was reading reviews on TA and he saw that the Royalton had a beach party on Mondays….
He mentioned it to me and I was like “ No way, they’ll probably move it to Tuesday if they have a wedding on the beach on Monday like ours…”
I dismissed and dismissed it – he kept bugging me to confirm with the wedding planner so FINALLY I did….and guess what?!
They don’t move it!
At first she suggested we move it to pool side BUT Chris and I met on the beach literally in Cuba! And he proposed in Punta Cana….we love the Caribbean and we want to get married with our feet in the sand just as we met! <3
I freaked out at first! Chris too!
So the wedding planner offered another option! On one side of the beach will be the beach party and on the other side of the beach our ceremony and reception….
At first we considered it but then I remembered that the beach at the Royalton is only 85 yards across! Now ladies I don’t know what distance that is LOL so my fiancé showed me! He was like from here to that house! LOL and it wasn’t far at all…..
Anyways, I’m writing a novel!
To keep it short! We’ve now moved our date to Tuesday, November 18th, 2014.
SUCKS! But what can you do…..
Guess just wanted to post on here NOT to book your wedding on a Monday if you want it on the beach!
Good luck ladies!
