I told her we did not need a private room or anything (that is $35/pp).

 

This is what I asked Yamina and her response is below that:

We would like to pick the location for our Rehearsal Dinner (8/2/12 @ 6:00pm). What are our restaurant options to accommodate a table for 20 people? Will it be a pre-set menu? or will we be ordering off the regular menu?

For 20 people, you can order from the menu. You can have this dinner on the terrace of the Oceana Restaurant (seafood) or, in the terrace of the Himitsu Restaurant (Asian). Let me know what do you prefer

 

You have the same issue we do. Fiance and I live in Houston, My family lives in Dallas area and all of his family is in New York and South Carolina. Our parents met and that's it. That's why I'd really like to do a dinner. I'm going to talk to my fiance's parents about it.

So is El Patio not an option? I'd like to do ours there!!

So it's the same price as paying for the sound system by itself? In that case, I'll take the DJ!

I don't believe you have to reserve so far in advance. You can always shoot your WC an email that you will be interested but I am pretty sure you can work it out when you get there... That's what I am doing. Also, you can ask past brides what the best restaurant for your group might be. I got the idea of having our welcome dinner at Portofino's from a past bride (http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/73522/janines-drc-mexico-wedding-planning-thread-pic-heavy-pages-1-7-are-the-thread-11-11-10/30).

 

I am also the Ultimate package photography at the rehearsal dinner. My WC Lorena made it clear that if I don't use the video/photography I lose it =(

Hi Ladies,

 

Question about the DRC wedding coordinator. I see that many of you talk about a lady named Yamina, however I have been corresponding with a lady named Evangelina....Is there more than 1 wedding coordinator? 

 

Thanks :-)

Are you using Adventure Photography for the wedding? if so, you can use that extra 30 minutes the day of the wedding if you don't want it at the rehearsal.

Yup. I don't think Evangelina is an actual coordinator. I think she is the head person you set everything up with. I had been in contact with her for several months and then just last month she "introduced" me to my new coordinator, Lorena. So I think Yamina and Lorena are the 2 actual coordinators who you do all your final arrangements with. Atleast that's what I've gathered from reading this board.

does anyone know what the pool deck offers for an entrance way?

 

I'm talking about when we introduce our bridal party, and ourselves for the first time... is there a walk way area or an entrance to the deck?

 

everyone knows thats the most fun part!
