Hey Boo congrats ;-)
that's what we've been told that better option for us will be to have the reception at the maroma, but I kinda worry how that is going to work for us since we have to leave the maroma the latest 11 pm.
So Boo since you have your reception at the DRC do you have to purchase two wedding packages ? Who is your wedding coordinator at the Maroma?
Thanks

Secrets Maroma - its Cecilia, we looked at the option of doing it at the Maroma marina, we are doing it on a resort instead. Yes day passes / package had to be purchased, hence not a cheap option.

We are doing 2 pm ceremony at Secrets Maroma. 2:30-4 pm cocktail hour at Secrets Maroma. Then dinner and dancing back at DRC at 6 pm. We are renting a bus for a half day to accomodate travel of our guests and its only about 10-15 min. away provided there isnt crazy traffic.

There are a number of vendors who will provide tables / linens, and there are a bunch of fun venues if you want to go the marina route, or there are private houses that can be rented. Cheers.

thanks for the info..... I was a bit worried!

BTW ladies.. I just bought the cutest tote (beach) bags for my OOt bags at the Dollar Tree.. A girl on this forum posted it and I like them much better than the Jute bags I originally bought.. plus they were only a $1.oo They are canvas material with a liner (mine is Fuchsia).. I spent between 3.00-5.00 on my other bags so this is a steal!!! I think if you go on the website you can buy in bulk.. case of 36 hope this helps!

Congrats!! Everything is going to go so well for you! If you go to the planning thread on the forum there is a planning journal by LadyDi and she posted her to do list - it includes the whole year, but the week before and the week of the wedding to dos are very detailed and helpful!
good luck!!

pb...thanks so much for that! I have been going crazy looking for totes? I checked out the site and it says that they come in an assortment of different colors? Are those the ones you got? How is the quality??

Ladies...how many buffet tables are there? I just went to order my linens and realized I did not know this answer. I thought I remember someone mentioning that there are 2 buffet tables. My brain is blank! Help!
