        HI Everyone!

         

        I've been back for a little while now, but been so swamped. Actually had to fly to cali a week after for work (taking a little break from it now to post!)

         

        wedding was amazing! I definitely had my dream wedding, and I didnt' even think it was possible.  I was never fully comfortable having a destination/outdoor wedding, but soooo glad I did. I'm going to post a full review and pictures, etc soon. Just as soon as this show is over. 

         

        Here are a couple of pics to hold you down for now..

          Hi,

          We are in the process of book our wedding here! I am having a hard time deciding on which package to choose though! If anyone could give me some advise I would love to hear it. I am wondering if you have to pay extra's for things like the sash's on the chairs in all three of the packages? Does any of the packages come with a dance floor for the reception? I am also wondering if you have to pay extra to have the reception on the seaside deck. I am not sure if I am reading their information properly. I was adding everything up and it seemed even with the top package with decorations and such the price comes to around $5000. Is this correct? It seems more then I had expected but maybe my expectations were off. I would love any feedback.

              Hi APNK,

               

              Congrats on choosing your wedding at DLR! I can give you my opinion on your questions. There is no charge for the white chair covers, sashes or table linens. The sash colors they have for free are fuchsia, green, orange, red or turquoise. Jenny also told me any other color is available for $3 each. Comparing the wedding guide last year to the new one this year, they increased the price of the dance floor and have 3 specific sizes available. Since it isn't listed under any of the wedding packages I would assume none of them include it for free. We decided to choose a beach reception and are not planning on getting the dance floor, so hopefully it will be fine to dance on the sand! I also asked Jenny about the reception locations and prices because I was seeing a lot of conflicting information. The free reception areas are beach, garden and ballroom. Any restaurant is $500 and the Seaside Grill deck is $300. I'm not sure what you are including to reach your total price. For me, I separated each included item for each wedding package and then compared to the "free" (when you meet the room requirements) wedding package with adding in the items we wanted. We decided a lot of the things included were things we didn't want anyway so we are choosing the free wedding package and adding what we do want. Although this package includes no dinner, you can add that on separately by the per person price. 

               

              I hope this helps! 

              Marji

                    Hi APNK, 

                     

                    I did pretty much the same as Marji - figured out the cost of the elements of the packages and compared to the base/free wedding package and decided if they were worth it to us to upgrade. Since I didn't want to use resort photography, some of the add-ons I wanted weren't included in any package anyway, and we're going to have a small group (I think 7 - 10 altogether), it really just didn't seem worth it to me. I have not added everything up yet. I'm a little scared to know what the total is. I already flinched at the cost of the preferred suite so that we could get the "free" package, but am happy to have the suite for getting ready the day of the wedding especially. I also know that I am going to be mostly fine with whatever is included and not adding much on or customizing much. It's the second wedding for both of us, and as long as we have the sun, sand, ocean, and each other, it will be perfect.

                      Beautiful! You were a lovely bride, and the setting is truly gorgeous. You can see the joy on your face in the picture with your father. Thank you for sharing. I definitely feel better about the beach gazebo the more pictures I see. Looking forward to any tips you learned when you have some more time. I'm assuming you brought the aisle runner along, and had to pay extra for the flower decorations on the gazebo? 

                       

                      Congratulations again!
