Q: How long have you been a wedding coordinator?
A: Almost 3 years.
Q: How many weddings have you coordinated?
A: Approximately 800 and counting.
Q: What makes Royalton White Sands a great place for a destination wedding?
A: It is an intimate hotel that is luxurious yet cozy at the same time! The staff are extremely friendly, the amenities are prestigious and the wedding locations are beautiful.
Q: What are the challenges brides face when planning their destination wedding at your resort?
A: Since it is one of smaller properties, rooms can sell out quite quickly. We also can host 3 weddings per day (depending on group size of course), therefore we highly suggest to book your preferred date, time and locations as soon as possible.
Q: What is your favorite part of a destination wedding?
A: Having all of your closest family and friends gather in tropical paradise to share your special moment with you, while your toes are in the sand and a cocktail in your hand!
Q: Can you tell us an anecdote about one of your brides when you saved the day?
A: Unfortunately, one of our sister properties, Memories Grand Bahamas, had closed due to severe damages caused by Hurricane Matthew. A couple of the wedding groups were transferred over to us, including one that was being held within a 6 day turn-around time of being notified. Our team here were able to have all the rooming arrangements prepared and recreate all the wedding details the couple initially wanted with our partnered vendors within that timeframe. The couples’ were astonished at how fast we were able to pull all the details together, making their trip easy to relax and enjoyable with their close family and friends! That’s the ultimate goal we want to give to our clients.

“We had a fantastic time (group of 20 people ranging from ages 4 – 65). The hotel was great and the staff was exceptional! Everyone enjoyed themselves (lots to do). Great variety of food (the vegetarian in our midst had no complaint).” – Kadian J. 12/18
“I truly enjoyed my weekend getaway at this hotel.
Loved the room especially the decor, the food was tasty. I went to Zen and The Stake house restaurants for date night and the food was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Literally love everything about this hotel and I will be going back.” – Kadi-Ann E. 11/18
“Great place with great service. I attended a friend’s wedding and they were nothing but accommodating and very helpful. Food was good that ranged from steakhouse, to sushi, and breakfast buffet (make sure your not wet from the pool or beach, cause you won’t be allowed inside for safety reasons). Many shops, ice cream/coffee place, and water slides. Had a great time and thank you for your services. Don’t forget to get really strong sunblock either folks.” – David T. 8/18
“I had my wedding there in April and the wedding was wonderful. The pictures came out great and the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were perfect. Our butlers, Kamal and Ardsley were magnificent and our wedding planner at the resort was so helpful. Thee food at the restaurants was great and the buffet was fantastic. Make sure you try the jerk hut at the beach too! The only downside was that the food at the sports bar too WAY to long to come out and there service at the restaurants left something to be desired. Other than that, i would highly recommend going to the Royalton and having a wedding there!” – Jolyon O. 5/17
“Service staff was very attentive, and the buffet food was excellent, including a dessert table that would put most to shame. The rooms, pool, and the facility were clean. The food at the other restaurants was the best we had ever experienced in our previous vacations. I would highly recommend this resort to those planning weddings with families, as this resort has the activities to keep everyone busy.” – Bruce F.
