Wedding Packages at the ROR

Recommended Posts

i was going to do the Royal package, but it seems the only real difference is the spa and the 12 pics you get. I dont really like getting massages and we already booked the deluxe suite ( didnt want to take the chance of an upgrade not being available) so we might change to the free package and pay for our added extras.....we'll see in a couple of months....Marlon

Thats my plan, I didn't feel the difference in price between the free package and the upgraded one was worth it. I'm going to pay extra for the things that are most important to me and it doesnt work out to be as much as the upgrade.

Looks like we'll be there at the same time :) My date is the 8th.

I don't plan on renting out the Plantation, we don't have a large enough group to really warrant that so we're most likely going to go with Mamee Bay.

We're actually trying to cut our list down so as to have it at Mamee Bay...there are just too many additional costs every where both for the wedding in Jamaica and the reception here....Marlon

Anybody know what the average costs of doing the wedding there? Let me re-word that...

After all of the extras, what is the average cost of the wedding there, fatoring in the "packages" and the "must-haves"....

It seems like most people just get the free package and do upgrades. The good news is you don't have to choose one til you get there and see what most cost effective for you. If you do pick one now you can always change your mind when you meet with Chandlyn. Personally, I'm going with the free package and getting upgrades because even with the royal or caprice I would be upgrading many things (flowers, cake, etc.) anyway. They kind of mislead you by saying the bigger packages accomodate a bigger wedding but from what I've heard they just add the amount of chairs you need for the ceremony for free. If you upgrade on the cake, it will feed more people anyway. No matter what package you get, you'll probalbly end up upgrading things anyway so why not get the free package? The biggest difference in the packages are the spa services which, in my opinion, is not really worth getting a more expensive package. Decisions- Decisions.

she definitely right....I would go with the free package and do all the upgrades afterwards, it just makes more sense...I was wondering if anyone knows if the pastor has to be used...my uncle lives in Jamaica and he is ordained so I wanted him to participate in our wedding, but Im gonna really hate it if we have to pay for the other pastor as well....

I am down for the royal package, but after reading several posts on this site I've emailed Chandlyn about changing my package to the free. It just makes more sense to pay for what i want. I am bringing my flowers with me and the decorations that come with the package are not what I want anyways. And as far as pictures go, I prefer to just pay for Michael's fees and the pictures on the cd with all rights to print when I get home. When I added it up it was cheaper to go the free package route for me.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
