I believe our actual cost will be around $2000 per couple. That is for a garden view room. I highly suggest using a travel agent. My best friend is a TA, so I am fortunate in that regard. She is booking trips for a couple other girls from this site as well. If you would like her info, PM me and I will put you in touch. I have been astonished at the prices some are paying, but I am assuming they are going during peak season and are perhaps flying from more expensive locations. We are flying out of St Louis on a charter flight. But I have some guests flying out of other airports on commercial flights, and their costs were a little higher due to their airfare. Good luck!

7 nights = $1078 per person
5 nights = $775 per person
4 nights = $636 per person
We did the resort separate from the air fare. Everyone booked their air on their own and we all got it pretty cheap from O'Hare. I paid $294 round trip on American for non-stop flights. The most anyone paid for airfare was $388 round trip. Again, this is for this June, but I would imagine it would be pretty similar next June. If you haven't done so already, contact Hagen Sommer at the resort to get quotes. He is the group sales manager firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope this helps!

I have some questions for the brides that have already gotten married at DRC.
We are having the cocktail hour before the reception. On the wedding contract, it says to pick one cold and one hot appetizer.
There are 3 categories of the cold one's and 3 of the hot one's. Ana is so vague on answering my questions as usual. Does that mean I get to pick only one cold and one hot appetizer? Or do I get everything listed under the hot and cold appetizer category?
Also, we have about 39 guests coming to the wedding. As far as the menus go..can we get the buffet menu if we have less than 40 people. I understand that it is mandatory if we have more than 40 people. Or do we only get the sit down dinner menu. If we choose the buffet, do we get everything on that menu or have to choose items under each category?
You can have the buffet if you have under 40 guests. I had 30 guests and we did the buffet. And same with the cocktail menu, you choose one category and get everything that is listed under it. We did change out the desserts though with desserts from other menus and Ana was very accommodating with the switching. We chose the Caribbean buffet and it was really good!

my ta just informed me that dreams rc is not honoring group rates or discounts in 2011, simply bc they dont have to. I am set on having my wedding here and am really discouraged.
If anyone has 2011 rates please share.
Thank you all so much.
