    Wedding Sept 2011:

     

    We have booked the Riu Palace steakhouse for a private reception dinner.  $1800. for the entire restaurant.

    We were told that only wine, pop, water and coffee is provided for drinks.

    We have decided not to pay for an open bar at $15. per guest; as we were told there is a bar just at the top of the stairs from the restaurant where the guests may go if they want beer or a rum and coke.

     

    Now I am looking to find anyone who has a picture of the restaurant.  (I can only find pictures of the terrace)

    I would like to see something so that we are able to plan the seating arrangments.

     

    There will be aprox. 56 guests and we would like to set up something rather than the U shaped long table set up that I have seen so far.  Does anyone have any picture they are willing to share?

     

    Also we are considering using Cedric for our DJ, sound system and lighting...has anyone done this and have any insight.

     

    I have been all over this forum and I have not been able to find anything inside of the steakhouse restaurant

     

    I appreciate any and all help anyone is able to share

        Michelle,

         

        The picture you sent was very helpful and is very different from any I have seen...just want to say thank you and see how the planning is going with your wedding.

          My name is Michelle,

          My wedding is 11/5/11

          Can you send me that pic of the steak house?

           

          So much to organize.

          I know I'm gonna need an open bar, my friends and family will want it more than the food. 

          We have 40 people..at $15 pp, still much better than a wedding here in the states.

              Hi Crys,

               

              How is your wedding planning going?  I think I saw a thread about stressing out about the number of people for your private reception.  I really hope it works out for you! 

               

              Do you happen to have a picture of the steakhouse?  I am thinking of having a private reception (5-12-12) on the terrace or on the bottom deck of the steakhouse but haven't seen too many pics.  It would be very helpful.  You are having your reception at the steakhouse and renting the whole thing correct?

               

              Thanks!!!

              Kary

                we were going to have the entire restaurant but dropped 2 guest below the number we booked with so are forced to now choose a different location.

                 

                We are now having the Don Julio Terrace; which I believe is the bottom deck of the steakhouse (both seatings) and the beach for dancing.

                 

                We were told the beach is one step down from the terrace.

                 

                Have no idea how it will be set up...the terrace doesn't look like there's much room (which is why we are including the beach for dancing)

                    Wow your wedding is next month, Very Exciting!!!!

                     

                    Thank you for the pictures!  They were very helpful.  Don Julio's looks like it will be a beautiful place for your reception dinner. 

                    I know you said you rented it for both seating's, ($1,000?) so does that include the regular menu, or do you have to pay per person for the food also?

                     

                    Did you decide to use a DJ, or are you just bringing your Ipod?

                     

                    Thanks!

                    Kary

                      Kary,

                       

                      The closer it gets the more stress when not everthing is confirmed with the WC

                       

                      both seatings $1000.00...they said we could still have the "menu 1" choice that we liked from the steakhouse

                      beach another $500.00...which seems kind of crazy but I guess they set up a wood dance floor but only 4 spot lights for lighting

                       

                      We have booked a DJ through the resort...another 500.00

                       

                      Trying to figure out how far the closest bar is so we don't have to pay for an open bar...Does anyone know where it is from Don Julio terrace?
