    Bee,

     

    I'm sure that is it, you just have to give option A or B for the Main Meal. Maybe make your menus and send them to Yanna asking if this is correct?

      Hi Ladies!

       

      Pink petals, I actually speak spanish so I have been communicating with her in spanish which makes it easier. Your fiance and you pick the entree, soup and dessert and then you pick two options for the main course out of the 4.

       

      Also, my parents went to the dominican republci and I had tehm do a site visit for me and they said everything was beautiful. For you ladies concerned about the cake, my mom toldm me that Yanna told her that if a bride wants a bigger or nicer cake they go to an outside vendor and get a "fake" cake done. They do this in a lot of wedding halls here in the us, where the top tiers are fake and tehy have a real tier for cake cutting. My mom did not get the price so I am not sure how expensive it is.

       

      For teh brides who already had their weddings on the SSG deck, did your shoes get stuck in between the wood, my mom is very concerned about this but Ithink I read somewhere that it was not that bad. Also, was it too hot for dancing outside?

          dcairns I LOVE the changed centerpieces. I think the lights in the bottom are great and that they'll look lovely on the tables. I prefer the shells spread about because you get more of a beach theme then everything smushed together.

           

           

           

           

          Pink_Petals, I think Mrs. Williams is correct. If there are 4 options (A, B, C, and D) you and your husband would choose, say, A and D, and on the night of the reception, your guests would choose either A or D as their main course. B and C would NOT be an option to them as they did not make the initial cut of what you and your husband chose.

           

          Ultimately, people will be happy with whatever food is served, and if they are still hungry, the can always get food later with the 24 hour room service. Don't stress too much, I am sure it will be fine once you get down there and all your family is there celebrating your big day.

            Just to quickly clarigy...when you said "entree" you mean "main course" right?

             

            Also, I already know what my guests chose...I already know what each person wants as their main course...so I want to print my menus again.

             

            Ok so lemme see if I get this now...

             

            For the Entree, Soup and Dessert....everyone has the same thing which me and my husband choose??

            And for the Main Course, each guests chooses (in th end) only one option which of course will vary depending on what the person chooses?

             

            I want to re-print my menus again and I want to be sure Im doing it right this time.

             

            So Person A might have:

             

            Entree: Capresse Salad

            Soup: Cream of Mushroom

            Main Course: CHicken Cordon Bleu

            Dessert: Pinneaple Volteado...

             

            Person B has the same thing except for the Main Course:

            Entree: Capresse Salad

            Soup: Cream of Mushroom

            Main Course: CHicken Cordon Bleu

            Dessert: Pinneaple Volteado....

             

            Oh man...im so screwed LOL


            This is correct.  We had the silver menu and the entree, soup and dessert was the same for everyone and at the beginning of the reception the waiters asked everyone if they wanted the steak or chicken meal.  Note, we did have 1 kid under 12 and they got pizza from the kids menu

              OMG Ladies!!! I feel like I've missed so much!!  I've been running around like a mad woman trying to finish all of my mini projects!  I leave Monday and won't be back until September the 27th so it will be a while before you get a review from me!

               

              Pink Petals, hope to see you down there!


              Love is a wonderful thing!

                Hi ladies!  I've been looking at several different resorts, but keep getting drawn back to DLR.  All the info in this thread has been so helpful as well!  Any info you guys have like 2011 price lists, HDC price list, etc., if you guys could email it to me at: eclancy1982@yahoo.com I would be so appreciative! 

                Thanks!

                Erin

                  Bee,

                  That's exactly what I meant but it looks like you've already gotten your answer.  I hope everything works out alright.  KRod100 would you be able to find out the price of the "fake" cake? That's the look I'm going for because the options that they provided were horrid.  I have an idea of what I want and I just hope they can get it right.

                   

                  I too am worried about the shoes because I have to wear heels as there is over a foot height difference between me and my FI - I'm 5'2 and he's 6'3.

                    so...we are now confirmed for 3pm...phew - i will now stop stressing about the light!!!

                     

                    also...Yanna just told me that they are also building a new gazebo at the moment that may be finished by then (don't think i'll take that risk) but may be of use to future DLR brides!!!

                     

                    GEM....how did you play your music on the beach and for the ceremony- did you book the DJ or just take an iPod? if so....did they provide you with speakers?!

                     

                    Thanks :)

                      That's great news!

                      also about the new gazebo as that was a major gripe of mine.  i had booked the gazebo at 4:30 over a year before my wedding and the other bride for that day switched from the beach to the gazebo a couple of days before for 5:30.  We started over 15 mins late (have no idea why as we were all ready at 4:20 like Yanna stated) and finished the ceremony at almost 5 and was only able to take less than 5 mins of pics in front of the gazebo before they rushed us out and took down all of my decor down and quickly but up the other brides.

                       

                      we also had our reception on the beach and brought a bose sounddock and it worked great and was loud enough
