    Hi All,

    Firstly I want to thank you guys for being so diligent on this board! It helped me to fully decide on ROR for my wedding next August!

    But I do have a few questions on ideas, and if anyone could help me out that would be great.

    I was thinking of doing the free ceremony with a semi private dinner and then rent out the disco for a few hours.

    How are the semi private dinners? Do they do a good job on sectioning wedding guests away from regular diners or should I opt for a private dinner? How much per hour is renting out the disco?

    Do you have any advice on what I should watch out for in the planning stage? Also maybe anything that I should make sure to make perfectly clear to Chandlyn and Nekeisha?

    Thanks So Much!!!

I am having a private dinner, so I don't know much about the semi-private ones...sorry! But I'm sure another girl here can help you. How much per hour is renting out the disco? You can rent out the disco from 9-11 and the total cost for dj and open bar is $250.

        Do you have any advice on what I should watch out for in the planning stage? Also maybe anything that I should make sure to make perfectly clear to Chandlyn and Nekeisha? Nothing in particular comes to mind. Read through the ROR threads and let us know if you have any questions!

        Thanks So Much!!!
