    Hi everyone,  I haven't been on for quite a while (too busy with projects!). I had to stop logging on bc everytime I did, I added to the diy list, lol. Anyhow, my FI (now husband : ) and I got married at DRC on Saturday, Dec 3rd. We're both extremely happy with our decision. The resort is gorgeous, staff is friendly, and even our picky eaters raved about the food.

     

    Yamina is great- she's very friendly and did a wonderful job with our wedding...and she managed to pull everything off exactly how we envisioned it. (I had Ana before, so I was only in contact with Yamina for a few weeks). I brought her two- yes two- large suitcases full of stuff- and everything worked out fine. Anyhow, here's our slideshow. If anyone has any quetions, don't hesitate to ask. I'll try to answer them as best I can.

      Your pictures are beautiful :) Looks like you had an amazing wedding! If you don't mind me asking, which wedding package did you choose? Did you add on with your photography?

        Does anyone have the contact information for the dj that the resort uses? Also, did you girls make your hair and makeup appointments ahead of time at the spa?

          Tigerlily, congratulations! Your pictures are beautiful! I am getting married March 18, 2012 and I can't believe how close that is. I wanted to know if you added on the trash the dress ahead of time and how much approx. it was. Also, did you bring all your own bows and centerpieces etc? Where did you purchase this all from? I have looked at Theknot and a couple other sites. Also, did you like the Dj? Who did you have? Did you bring your music on CD?

            Wow!!!  Unbelievably beautiful!!! 


            I'll think up a million questions I'm sure...just one I can think of now is where did the guys get their suits?

              Haha, Julie!  She didn't pick up--my TA had set it up and when we called at the time, she wasn't there.  She's going to try again tomorrow:)

I definitely have been wondering how long receptions last, because if I am going to use the dj I want to know for how long I will need him for. Also, since we are both getting married on the beach--do we get the white carpeted walkway, and white chair covers? I am going with the ultimate and wasn't sure if that is included for the beach! Thanks so much!!! Let me know how your phone call goes, maybe you can answer some of my questions :)

                Tigerlily- you are so beautiful!! You wedding looked great. I have a few questions if you dont mind.... First, I like your lanterns as your centerpieces and I was wondering if the resort had them or if you brought them down? And if the resort had them, if you dont mind me asking how much they charged you per. Also, you guest book looked interesting and I noticed you had a fuji instanx camera (which I am having as well) and was wondering what you did as your guest book and/or with the camera? One more questions, I see you had fireworks (not the ones on the dance floor)....how much did this cost if you dont mind me asking??

                 

                Thanks!

                    Thanks jkhowell. What time is your ceremony and reception scheduled if you don't mind me asking? I am trying to figure out all of my times and locations. I was thinking of having the ceremony at 5:30?

                      So I have to tell Anel today which photography package I want in order to book her services for my wedding day (June 18th 2012). I am torn between package 2 and package 3--

                      Package 2 is 3 hours of coverage and with tax about $886, package 3 is 6 hours of coverage and $1106 with tax. Package 3 seems to be the better deal--what do you guys think? I just didnt know if 6 hours was too much----need your opinions!
