    I just want to say that everyone is wonderful and everyone does appreciate all of the advice that everyone has given....my best friend had a destination wedding a couple of years ago and she has given me some great advice...these forums are wonderful...my friend told me that she skipped the cocktail hour and just had the reception...i thought that was a good idea....and so I am doing that and in return am getting 10 more people for my reception that I don't have to pay extra for...I just think it's a wonderful idea for people who are having like 40 or more people....my friends wedding was awesome and I never noticed that she did not have a cocktail hour...just an idea i guess.....

        I did the same thing, for the longest time I couldn't figure out that you needed points to open attachments, it really confused me! But when I first joined I was the only dreams cancun bride, so there weren't very many attachments for me to open, lol!


        I really don't mind answering questions for people, but its hard for me to find the time to email information to people and a lot of the information I had originally posted, I don't even have on my computer anymore.

          I totally understand. It is frustrating on both ends... one person trying to learn from the one person teaching seven million lol

            I'm doing the same thing! It is a nice comprimise to still have a formal reception but not completely break the bank. There will be plenty of cocktails flowing at the dinner!

                Hi Ana!

                Posting helps up your number of points.
                Refer to the lower left hand corner of the screen.
                I just donated some points to help look at some of the attachments.
                I would suggest looking through this entire thread first as there are several links that don't require you to use points.

                Also do a search (upper right) for Dreams Cancun, there are some other thread with pictures out there.

                Hope this helps!

                  Oh, and a lot of the information we had posted in this thread as far as pictures, flowers, etc. is now on the re-designed Dreams site.
                  Haha! Yeah, now that my wedding has come and gone!

                    When was the site re-designed?

                      I am soooo glad to hear that! I have no use for a cocktail hour and with my hefty guest load (between 30-50) I can certainly use the credit toward the reception. Thanks!
