      We are doing the beach. My personal feeling is, one reason I am having a DW is because we love the water and beach so dancing and having a reception by the water is a dream come true. Some have expressed a concern for weather have led them to the tower or also not wanting to be playing in the sand too.

        I am definitely doing it on the Beach. My FI never gets excited about anything "WEDDING" but he says not matter what the cost he wants our wedding to look like this:

        I have worried about the rain but I did hear in one of the threads they witnessed a wedding getting rained out on the beach and they relocated the reception to the terrace. Also, you will have to be sure guests and yourself have the right shoes for a beach wedding.

          That has been my dilema, but after looking at all the beach set ups, I am having it at the beach.

            we went with the tower as we were not sure some of our older guest would enjoy the beach!

              I had mine in the tower lobby and cocktail hour and dancing was on the terrace.

              We did not opt for the beach since we paid for our own wedding, there were several extra expenses to having it on the beach we didn't want to pay for...
              The lights under the tables and the dance floor we a large expense for us.

              Since we were married in February, it was extremely windy, so it was good to have dinner inside.
              My friends with babies preferred to stay inside away from the wind as well.

                Ooooh Now I'm confussed !! I've got a sensible side of me that says " have the cocktail hr on the garden and the reception meal either in the tower lobby or the terrace " then I have the "party girl / I don't care / I'll do what I want" side to me thats saying " go on !! ..... Its a once in a lifetime experience and thats the whole part of having a destination wedding, theres just too many choices ARRRR ! But like Paula we are paying for the wedding ourselves too and there is a considerable extra cost to having the reception on the beach ? My problem is I want everything LOL !

                      We're also going with the Club Terrace for the same reasons that Paula and others are/did-- paying for our own wedding and the wind factor. That said, I haven't seen many (or any?) reviews from girls who have actually gotten married on the beach at DC. Those of you who are will be our guinea pigs! I'm sure it will be amazing either way, that photo is GLORIOUS and I can't wait for beach wedding reviews!
