    One thing you will notice at the resort as a whole - and especially at your reception - is that unless you tell them to stop refilling your drink, you will continue to get drink after drink of the same thing.  This is great on the one hand because you don't see the bottom of the glass, but the bad thing is that you really have to let them know if you want to switch to a different drink.

      Hmm - I will list out the items I brought with me:

      - OOT (out of town bags)

      - ceremony programs

      - bubbles

      - sand ceremony frame

      - CD with ceremony music

      - chair bows

      - table runners

      - colored napkins

      - bought maracas at a Cancun flea market

      - menu card

      - donation card

      - seashells & starfish

      - escort cards

      - cake topper

      - engraved cake cutting set

       

      All of these items are described in detail in my planning thread:



      Hi, Leigh

       

      First of all, congratulations on your beautiful wedding at Dreams!!!

       

      My wedding is April 2012 and I have a few questions for you.

       

      What are the items you brought to the resort with you for the wedding?

       

      I know I can personalize everything but since my wedding is a small one with only direct family members, I just want to minimize all the trouble.

       

      Are there anything that is absolutely necessary or better to bring to the resort regarding the preparation of the ceremony and reception?

       

      Julie

        So when they say 3 hrs of international open bar, do they set up a bar on location of your reception? Or is someone taking orders and bringing the drinks back to you from the bar?

          My guess is that depends on where your cocktail hour and reception are located.  My cocktail hour was on the Terrace, so the waiters would just go in and get drinks from the bar in the lobby of the Tower.  My reception was on Himitsu beach right next to the bar attached to Himitsu to restaurant.

            Were you able to see the ballroom while you were there? Since I can't have the terrace I may go ahead with the ballroom. I emailed Claudia and asked if the ballroom has ac? I would think it does, but you never know? Lol I am still waiting for a reply.

              I can't say that I really saw the ballroom.  I know where they are located and I went into one of the rooms, but it was set up in such a way that I can't give you any idea what it would look like for a wedding. 

               

              You can tell there is a large room that they can break into segments to make different size rooms.  On Monday nights during NFL season, they set up the giant screen on the lagoon beach so people can lay on the lounge chairs and watch MNF.  Well, it was really windy on the Monday night I was there, so they set up to watch MNF in just one tiny segment of the ballroom.  They set up rows of chairs (with the white covers) pointed toward a projection screen.  The room definitely did not feel warm (though it was night) so I would assume they do have AC as well.  Hopefully Claudia will get back to you soon with some pictures of weddings in the ballroom.

                [/quote Thanks! I think the beach receptions are lovely, but I have two guests that will be 90 when I get married and I worry about them walking on the sand.

                      Wow I haven't been on since August and had a lot of reading to catch up on! I think I would be so stressed out if I hadn't found this website. You girls have been so great with all the info and answering questions. Congrats to all of you who have gotten married recently! I have a question about flowers; do you decide on what flowers you want once you arrive and is there a lot to choose from?? Is there anyone getting married in February??
