    Thank you all so much for the suggestions!  What about for the bridesmaids luncheon??  What do you think is the best location?  And for the farewell brunch?  Thanks ladies :)

      I am using a TA that I absolutley LOVE!!  Her name is Kim Grammer and her email is kim@i-travelagent.com   She operates not only as a TA, but also as a coordinator.  She has been so helpful in getting the resort to answer my questions and she has worked thru the hurdles I have met in dealing with the peole at DRC.   I would highly recommend using a TA to book your wedding beacuse they negotiate your group room rate.  I would definelty choose Kim again to work with.

        Bridesmaid lunch - If Oceana is open that day that would be nice, but seaside grill is open for lunch as well.  The only thing is those two places are outside so if you're worried about getting hot or sweating...you might want to go with World Cafe since that's inside and air conditioned.

         

        For our farewell brunch we're doing it in the world cafe - we're going to speak to the manager a few days in advance and just ask them to block off a corner for our group.  That way people can come down for breakfast whenever they want between 9 and 11 you know?

          We used a TA as well - for a couple reasons...we found the group rate through the hotel was not nearly as good as what our guests could get online and our TA does pricematches so you can book today and 3 months before the wedding if specials come out, she rebooks you.  So over half our guests basically got a tropical view room for $100 per person per night.  Also, we have older guests who don't feel comfortable booking hotels online or flights so we wanted them to have a contact to handle all that.

           

          And of course, same as the other girls, my TA is great about getting in contact with the coordinators.

           

          Although I will tell you that Gabriela takes about 2-3 days to respond to my emails so I'm much happier!
