LAST MINUTE QUESTION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN TO DLR!
ok, so I was speaking with a friend today about how "wedding poor" I have become in the last month with all of these expenses! She was wondering if we really need to dish out the $1000 USD plus 26% tax to have to SSG rented just to our party for the entire night. So my question for those who have been there, is if you think that there might be a way to section off the restaurant so that it is still private? Also - since there are 9 a la carte's, would the whole restaurant even be that packed in the first place?
Just wondering, cause if I can save almost $1500 Canadian dollars then I just might!

We have decided that we are not going to pay to "hire" the ssg nor pay the extra to have everyone served at the same time. We have paid £1000 plus each for an all inclusive holiday, which encludes food and drink, also I have 22 people all paying to stay at their hotel therefore I am refusing to pay for food we have already paid for!!! We are just going to ask for a table to be set up at the side of the ssg and we will all get our food when it comes!! I'm quite sure none of my guests will complain. I am having an evening reception when we get home for all the guests unable to make it to dlr, (and I get to wear my dress again). So it is costing us a lot too. Something somewhere has to give.
Also ther are two reviews on trip advisors of weddings at DLR, one paid for a private reception, the other didn't and she said her tables were set away from the others in the restaurant and the waiters and staff were fantastic to them, they felt it was private enough and didn't regret not having a private reception.
