I have a few questions and I wonder if anyone can help...for those of you who have already been married there.
We have specific music that we have picked out for our beach wedding. So prelude/processional and recessional, as well as music to play well the guests are seated....after the recessional. We will have this all on our ipod. Do they have speakers on the beach to do this? If so, who plays the songs on the ipod for you??
After the ceremony, do they hand out champagne immediately for all the guests?
Also, for the reception, we have the himitsu terrace booked (we wanted the bordeax but had too many ppl ). We plan on having all the music preset up on our ipod, and would like to have a dance after the dinner. Is there a dance floor on the terrace? Also, do you have to rent the speakers at an extra charge? Is there a microphone available for the m.c?
Any help you ladies can provide would be great!!!
I am getting married at DPC in 26 days. Following the ceremony we are having a cocktail hour - this includes a bar and champagne if you like. I am not certain if Champagne is included in the bar. We are planning to be with our guests for part of the cocktail hour, then leave for photos. We are having a dinner/reception at 6pm at the Himitsu terrace as well. You won't need to get a dance floor (there is a dancefloor you can rent - but I think this is mainly used on the beach. My WC told me there would be room for dancing. I am also bringing my own music list as well for the reception and dance bringing my ipod. There is a music system that you can rent, and I am pretty certain it comes with a microphone. I was told that I can hook up my ipod, actually that the ipod would work best. We will be relying on our MC to work the music, however, once he turns the playlist on that I made, he will be able to walk away.
We have decided to use the Carribean Trio for the ceremony, so I can't really help with that part.
I believe that you can create whatever you want for your wedding and reception - you just need to tell your WC what you want and when, but there is a cost for everything. My WC has accomodated all of my requests so far and has been fantastic at answering my questions.
I hope this helps...I can post more after I get back!!!
