    Hi everyone! We are getting married February 2013 at DRC and I have a few questions before deciding on and booking the ceremony, reception etc? I have seen a few pictures of the reception on the pool deck and pool terrace, which one is better to use for about 30 to 35 guests? Is 4:00 pm a good time for the ceremony if you want sunset pictures or should we do 3:00? I've read on here you don't want too much time in-between and you're only allowed so much time for the reception? Has anyone ever run into the problem of rain and what is the back-up for the reception then? Do you recommend hiring the DJ for the reception or bring your own music? It is great to have this site to be able to talk with people who have been married there and are in the process of planning their wedding as well. Any information is welcome and greatly appreciated! Is there somewhere on here you can view pictures of anyone's wedding at the DRC?

          I am getting married in December and I was told by the photographer that a 4pm ceremony would be too late/dark for pictures. We are having our ceremony at 3:30, taking pictures/cocktail hour 4:30-5:30 then reception from 5:30-8:30. 

           

          We are using the pool deck for the reception mainly because I liked the way the wood looked. And it'll save us money on renting a dance floor. 

           

          We are also using the DJ. My fiancĀ© and I don't really listen to "dance" music so we'd have to pay to put all that music on our iPods so really in the long run the DJ isn't that much more expensive and a lot more convenient! 

           

          Hopefully I've answered some of your questions!

            Hi Everyone! Not sure how to add myself to the list, but my wedding date is August 7, 2012 (Ashley & Dave). I was wondering what you guys were doing as far as the photography packages. We chose the dreams of love option and I was thinking of adding on the $999 photography package. Do you think that's worth it? Also, does anyone know where to find men's linen pants? I'd rather buy them in a store so my fiancĀ© can try them on first, but not sure wear to find them.

              And just an additional question about photography. I'm really confused with these packages. The dreams of love package includes 36 color photos, but when are the photos taken?is it a full day of coverage and then you choose photos? And if you add on the $999 package, or one of the photography packages, how many photos do you get? If someone could clarify this it would be great. I'm just trying to decide it's worthbit to add on.

                We are doing the $1500 package because I wanted the Trash the Dress. We're not having a rehearsal dinner so they are letting us use the 30 minutes from that on the day of our wedding. The photos in the package do not include the person actually taking the pictures. The photos in the package are just free pictures you get to pick but you still have to pay for one of the packages that the hotel offers. From what I understand, if you don't use the hotel photographer you forfeit those pictures in the package or maybe you can use the credit towards something else. 

                 

                I'm using the hotel photographer like I said with the $1500 package so I get all the prints/albums that come with that package plus the 50 prints (I think) that come with the ultimate package.

                Have you emailed the hotel photographers? They can help a lot with your questions!

                 

                Hope this helps a little bit :)

                      So does anyone who has been married or knows about the DRC reception agenda, can answer questions on the better location (pool deck or pool terrace) which is better to hold for 30 - 35 guests?
