  1. Michelle- I really loved the sweetheart neckline on you! I thought all the dresses looked lovely though! Good luck!

I left my dress bustled the whole time (besides during some prof. pictures) it probably would have been hitting me in the face! LOL. My seamstress had to put 5 hook & eyes in to keep it all up!! Yesterday I did all my name changing duties (SS card, DL, Bank account..) and my DH will call me now and say "Hello, My beautiful Wife.." or "Hello Mrs.Baker.." hehe.

My Travel agent was able to get them from the resort...don't quote me but I can see how she got them or if she can get more?!?...

I don'thave anything for centerpieces yet, but I am glad to hear she didn't charge you to set up. My ideas involve glass vases and candles though... not easy to transport. We did not make them, they came with the Dreams logo..which we thought was neat! My centerpieces (I know sorry, no pics) were glass bowls with blue sand, and a variety of shells. We transported them in small cardboard boxes just big enough to fit and they took up their own suitcase. And I also did five votives for each table, they came boxed so also were easy to transport. The starfish we put in bubble lined envelopes and packed them in with the rest of the centerpieces. On the way home we actually were able to put a suitcase inside a suitcase due to not bringing back the centerpieces. We checked this bag with Seth's parents luggage, due to having five check in bags (two carry on's and my dress)..hehe. Quote: Originally Posted by jlink78 That is my plan too Paula.

I had emailed her to see how much it would be without the flowers and just the candle and she told me the same price!! I'm not too happy about that but at the same time don't want to be lugging big glass vases around with me! Thanks for answering Paula's questions ladies. Many of them were questions I had myself. Katherine, how many people did you have attend your wedding? I know Jill had 25 but I was unsure of your number. How did you like the band that you guys hired? Would you recommend the ballroom for a large group? I was leaning towards the beach reception but after the wind issues you guys reported I'm really second guessing that! Thanks again! We were really happy with the band. They are a little pricey, but they can play anything and did a great job entertaining. I did not give them a list of songs to play so we just kept requesting them and they played!! We were also VERY happy to have the reception in the ballroom. After being in the rain, wind (Humid wind!), sand all weekend it was nice to get out of the humidty and in some AC!! The guest were thrilled to get into the cooled room. LOL. Including Seth and I we had a total of 43 people.

I know, I think Daniela was pretty worried also. She came to me early that afternoon and asked if it was okay to move my cocktail hour & reception. My MIL is currently wearing a wig due to her chemo treatments so she was very worried about the wind!! but it held up nicely

They turned out really nice! that was one of the details I didn't really get into and decided on at the last minute. Here is what I used: BM Bouquet: B-21 GM: BT-12 & BT-14 My Bouquet: B VIP-61

Or do they do anything special for your rehersal dinner? I'm having so much trouble with the questionaire. What's the best package to get and where is the best place to hold the reception? Thank you! No, and for breakfast most mornings a lot of us would sit together. So you won't get charged, but we wanted the extra service. We decided to go ahead and pay to do the rehearsal dinner and they were great about having three different seating sections (to accommodate the group) and then we picked a set menu. We did a champagne toast (which ended up not costing us since I didn't do some other things in the package) and then they came around and did those "tequila" shots with most of the group. Which was so funny, my mom doesn't drink and they talked her into doing one (it was mostly fruit punch and sprite) and so we all got a kick out of it.
  11. I guess since I took the time to fill this out I should go ahead and do my review, huh?? hehe. here ya go!! 1-What did they charge you to set up items that you brought yourselves? -Nothing! 2- Did Claudia/Daniela stick around to help you follow your timeline? -Daniela was great with making sure everything went smoothly and in order, I didn’t give a timeline..I just let everything flow. But she was there to assist everyone to the ballroom from the terrace and then she was around at the reception to make sure we did the cake cutting, dances, toast ect.. 3- Those of you that had 4 hours for dinner and reception, did they charge for the extra hour? N/A 4- Did any of you have the long table setup on the terrace? How many people did it fit? I did the cocktail hour at the terrace, so just the small round tables (the “cocktail†tables) 5- Was the dancing on the terrace hard due to the poles from the awning? -the dance floor they set up even in the ballroom is very small, we had a hard time having everyone being able to dance on it. Of course we were dancing so hard by the end of the night we had literaly worn it apart!! LOL 6- Cocktail time in the garden - did you have problems with heels sinking into the ground? N/A 7- Anyone have the trio for the ceremony music? Could you hear them? I did the basic traditional music, with sound system. The wind was so strong it was hard to hear anything! I was concentrating just to hear the judge! 8- Did you buy candy and chips for OOTs bags? Where was the best place to buy these items? My Mom was also able to get these AWESOME Dreams Cancun bags/coolers from our travel agent. They have an insulated bottom and are perfect beach bags! We gave ours out at the meet & greet Friday and saw everyone using his or her bags! We did: Bath & Body works tropical hand sanitizer, first aid kit, anti-diarrhea, Rolaids, tissue, q-tips, chap stick (w/ spf!), travel Tylenol, suckers, gum, lemonheads/red hots, and note pad and pens! 9- If you had round tables for dinner, how many people could sit at each? -Eight People 10- What were you charged for passes for those not staying at Dreams? -Well, my guest kind of snuck in..Hehe…I only had two people not staying there and they ended up not having to pay.Sshh! 11- Did you have dessert and cake? Was that too much? Did you opt for a smaller cake if you did both? We did just the cake. 12- Anyone do sparklers? What did they charge? No, but I wanted to!!! 13- Anyone use the extra room they offer in the Ultimate package for their FI the night before the wedding? No, But I did ask for a room to get ready in the day of. So they gave me a room on the first floor of the tower and it was ready by 3pm day of wedding and we cleaned out my stuff after the reception. I had my honey stay with his Best man, hehe. Phew! Sorry for all of the questions...
