When you first start researching for your destination wedding, one of the most frustrating parts is trying to pick a resort with the right wedding package. Most all-inclusive resorts will start with fairly simple wedding packages and then they add-on as you go. If you’re having a larger wedding, you might find that you are looking at the price for a package with 20 guests and then adding on per guest. The Beyond Memorable package offered by AM Resorts is no exception; however, it does make planning for a larger wedding a little easier as they have a fairly reasonable package price listed for weddings with both 50 attendees and 100 attendees.
Who are AM Resorts?
In the world of all-inclusive resorts, AM are one of the most well-known for their fabulous destination weddings. The family of resorts includes Secrets, Breathless, Dreams, Now, Krystal, Sunscape and Zoetry. Each resort is special based on location and the demographic that they cater to, but quality and level of service remains relatively consistent among each brand. It’s important to work with a travel specialist who can go through the differences of each resort to determine which is the right one for your personal style and needs!
Room comps that come with booking the Beyond Memorable Package:
New weddings booked with Coral Tide Travel are eligible for significant room comps. How does it work?
The wedding couple will be reimbursed the dollar value for every 5th room up to a max 10 rooms that books at the resort for their wedding through Coral Tide Travel and the wedding couple can spend that money however they like!
The lowest value rooms in the room block will be the comped rooms. For example, when the group books four double occupancy rooms and one single occupancy room in the same room category/same travel dates, then the lowest total value room would be the single occupancy room and would be the complimentary room.
The total value of complimentary rooms is awarded to the wedding couple’s credit card approximately two to four weeks before travel.
The Beyond Memorable Package is for weddings with a minimum of 50 guests and the wedding date must be confirmed with the hotel wedding department and travel agent a minimum of one year before the wedding.
Coral Tide Travel is also offering the “Wedding Couple Fly Free” promotion, where wedding couples will receive a credit of up to $1,000 towards their flights if the group books a minimum of 75 room nights or more.
Available for US wedding couples only

Many destination wedding couples head into their planning journey knowing that they would like to get married at a venue located in their destination as opposed to an all-inclusive resort. Others start researching all-inclusive resort weddings and determine that it’s not for them. The good news is that Punta Cana is home to some of the best off-resort wedding venues that you could find. Wedding couples can opt to have the best of both worlds by having their friends and family stay together at an all-inclusive resort and then on the day of their wedding, be taken to a special wedding venue to celebrate the big day.
Why have your destination wedding off resort?
Vendor fees: Some couples are quite happy to use the resort’s contracted vendors for their wedding day (photographer, videographer etc). However, some couples enjoy the freedom of being able to hire who they choose. Most all-inclusive resorts charge off-site vendor fees, meaning you pay a premium if you want to bring your photographer to the resort on your wedding day. Most off resort venues will allow you to make your own vendor list.
Décor: Many venues have a wedding planner who takes care of all your décor. Other venues will allow you to hire the wedding planner of your choice. Off resort venues can sometimes have more flexibility with your personal vision as they can hire other vendors to bring in the flowers, dinner sets and other décor that you specifically want.
Something different: Many of your guests will have probably already been to an all inclusive resort, but it’s likely that most of them didn’t get off the resort much to really experience the local flavor. This can add excitement to your trip as guests (and yourself) get to spend time at a completely different venue than the all-inclusive resort that they are in for the rest of the week.
