David had just emailed me about this, the deck is wooden and the terrace is cement.

 

 

Is the Jacuzzi the only location they offer for cocktail hour?

      Hello DRC brides!

              I just got back from our wedding at DRC that took place on June 6th. I could write a long review, but it all comes down to the fact that everything was amazing and just as I pictured it! 

       

      We had our ceremony on North Beach at 4pm ( much more private) 

      We had our cocktail hour at the Palm Deck which is right next to the Pool Deck from 5-6

      We had our reception on the Pool Deck (right in front of the ocean) from 6-11 (we wanted a longer reception!)

       

      Ayahamint was my coordinator, she was awesome and kept me in my budget!

      Linda was great!

       

      Music:

      Our DJ kept the party going and played everything we wanted, right on time, beautifully orchestrated! The trio was great, but I felt like they finished too early!

       

      Food:

      We had the Caribbean buffet, everyone thought it was amazing! We changed up the cocktail hour food to more of a mexican theme with shrimp cocktails, tacos etc.

       

      Open Bar:

      The open bar was amazing, my guests really enjoyed it and our waiters were the best! 

       

      Advice: For those ladies on a budget, I traveled with a lot of my things and it saved me a ton! I won't budge on the sparklers or the DJ

      So...

             On the cake, i took my own flowers and cake topper and didn't have to pay for extra decoration

             I went with the small centerpieces and they looked just perfect although i was told they would look too small

             I also went with the bouquet with my package and just chose my colors, saved there!

       

      Everything everything was perfect I wish you all the luck in the world and any questions I can answer I am so happy to do so!

       

      Below is the link to the wedding blog my photographer did for us ( I used anel for some pictures on the beach a few days before the wedding as it came with my package) I flew my own photographer down to take our pictures (did not pay a fee because she was part of my wedding party)

        Hi Everyone! Haven't been on in awhile. My wedding is on August 2, 2014 Saturday. We're expecting 87 people. 

         

        Ceremony: Gazebo at 5PM

        Reception: Pool Deck at 8PM

         

        I'm most likely opting out of the cocktail hour to save the $2k.

         

        As for decor, I'm trying to go really minimal. I haven't even finalized anything with our wedding coordinator as it is so hard to communicate w/ her. We have Ayahamint. I have so many questions but it sounds complicated just emailing her.

        Does anyone know what the complimentary package (or $999) includes with the symbolic ceremony?  It doesn't really say on their website and I wasn't sure if it included things like chairs (how many), aisle runner, ceremony speakers for music, the officiant, the arbor with coverings for it, etc.


        Also, where can I find the silver and gold menu selections for the private receptions?

          they come in 4ft, 6ft, and 8ft

           

          most places have 6ft ad 8ft

           

          If you can put two tables together to get one huge square table you can order 132 round table cloths. It looks so elegant.

          Does anyone know if the restaurants here require men to only where pants and if so what kind?
