I don't think there is electricity on the pier though, so not sure about music.

There is electricity at the gazebo though. They have this area where the 'dj' is set up with these big speakers (I believe there is an electrical box stationed there) about 10' from the gazebo near one of the trees.

If there is a bit of a breeze on the pier, it would be very welcomed, TRUST ME! Especially as we get closer to the summer months... even the people on the resort said that the weather just gets hotter and hotter.
Ah thanks Amy, I think you have made my mind up! I love the idea of pier, when you saw the lobster dinners there were they by candlelight? did you use the photographers that Tiara suggested? your photos are amazing!!!

I'm pretty sure they were candlelit. It looked very romantic.

 

I used HDC Photo, but the photos I saw by the resort photog looked really cool as well. I'm not sure what their pricing is like, but HDC was a really good price - (you also have to pay $60 day pass fee for them to come on the property though).

Thanks Jo that was just what I was looking for, so far I've picked John Jackson, Better when we're together, Jason Mraz I'm yours, Israel Kamakawiwo'ole somewhere over the rainbow as they all feel really "beachy" so I'm trying to find more like that. I was thinking of walking down the aisle to whitney I believe in me and you, but now I'm thinking its a bit cheesy. Our first dance is Natasha Beddingfields version of Chasing Cars, its my favourite song but the words mean even more now that I have been let down by my family. As for the decorations I'm bringing my real touch flowers with me as hand luggage, I'm flying with Thomas Cook and they allow you an extra suitcase for your wedding dress free, I am however bringing my dress in a heavy duty long suit cover and bringing it as hand luggage, so I'm putting the lanterns, girls dresses, mens suits and all our shoes in the extra suitcase. Thats why I'm worried about speakers I just can't fit any in!!!

 

For those thinking of the Pier I think its sounds really beautiful, the thing that put me off was I was told by a girl who had been there on facebook that although they close the pier off for the wedding, people swim up to the pier and watch. This may not bother other people but I really didn't want people standing or floating around in bikinis watching me get married. She had said the gazebo was most private.

Thanks, Maybride for a great review! So glad you had a great time=) I just wanted to ask you if your ceremony on the beach was in a private area- or was there people coming up to it? I don't mind so much people watching....just don't want them in my view in a speedo or anything. lol

 

Good luck to all you gurls who are coming up!!!!! =)

I booked with HDC as well (photography and videography)....Im totally excited!!! Their work is just absolutely beautiful and the prices I find are fair.
I have read many reviews on HDC and I have not come across ONE single bad review :) They have done wedding at DRL before so you dont need Tiara to coordinate with them I dont think...I just briefly mentioned it to her. I think Amy mentioned that you need to pay for their day pass so they can come into the resort and I think thats about it.
