Melissa,

 

Our AGENT is a go to for guests so tthat my fiance and I are not bombarded with RSVPs and travel questions.  She set up individual bookings but at a guaranteed rate for us and they have price match so if it goes down after they book, they get the lower price!  She also is taking care of airfare, transfers, and already upgraded us to the honeymoon suite... just some things to think about!

Are the rooms booked through bookit (or other discount sites) counted on your room total to get the group discounts?

@Sweetmelissaann..  I would recommend using a travel agent simply to avoid any confusion, hassle and/or issues you may have. Also, he/she would be able to secure/block "special group rates" for all of your guests. With my agent for every 5 rooms I book, I get a 1 free comp which is fantastic.  If I book 10 rooms I get a honeymoon suite.  If you need her information let me know. She's well connected w/all the WC at DRC including the general manager.  She is also serving as my contact w/Ana since she seems to respond to her immediately.

I was wondering if I can get some ideas or examples of timelines from you girls? I requested a 5:30 ceremony 6:30-7:30 cocktail hour and 7:30-11:30 reception. For some reason I thought the reception was 4 hours long but Ana is telling me the reception is only 3 hours and anything over we need to pay $15.00 which I think means per person, right? I was hoping to atleast go until 11:00pm. Ending at 10:30 seems a little early to end the reception. I can get other ideas from you all that would be very much appreciated.

We have gone with a 5.30 cermony, then photos probably from 6-7, 7-8 cocktail hour then 8-11 reception so it feels a bit longer. I think the latest you can have the reception ending is 11 but i could be wrong. A lot of brides on the forum then go onto Desires if they want to carry on?

I hope this helps.

Hi Sarah-Jane,

 

This helps me out a ton. Thanks for the info. I like your timeline and I think I may do the same. Hopefully guests are ok with that one hour gap in between the ceremony and cocktail hour. Or maybe I might push my ceremony to start at 6? However I'm not sure if that would be too late to start or past sunset. hmmmm.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
