  1. Hi Future Dreams brides! I got married there in Nov 2010, and it was a beautiful experience. Just got a preview to my wedding "film" back (my videographer is amazing, but takes 6 months to deliver), and wanted to share it, video does the place more justice than pics. It's so gorgeous! See it here: http://vimeo.com/21451419 Good luck to all!
  2. Kids do count! Under 12 count as half a person. I don't know the lower limit (ie...does a 6mo old or 1yo count?) but I do know our 2 and 3year olds counted.
  3. Ouvrm, You did have beautiful centerpieces! I am so happy it worked out for you. Perhaps my mistake was using her for more than just flowers (though looking at just the flowers, she still did a horrific job for my wedding). I also had a meeting with her at my venue before the wedding, and she showed up with a man who she called her "setup engineer" who I understood was taking measurements to plan for the final execution. I was impressed...I mean, he seemed professional. Who knows where she found him, no engineer would have ever done such a crappy job...I mean, look through my p
  4. Thanks! And I love the dress in your avatar pic, so I'm sure we do hehehe
  5. Robe and Tank are sold, everything else is still available
  6. Have a few things I actually brought back with me to sell. All items used once for hours at a time: Victoria's Secret Robe (L): $35 (note: this is size large, I wear a size 6 and it was fine. The print is white rhinestones, though it looks kind of blue in my pic) Victoria's Secret Bride Hoodie (Size Medium): $35 Bride Tank from VS (Size M): $15 Hear Shaped Sunglasses $10 (used only for pics) I have a pair of white ones and a pair of baby pink ones
  7. I love Fernando! He did my wedding a few weeks ago, I felt like a princess. And he sprayed some thing on my face, my makeup looked like this ALLL night, and I sweat the night away dancing for 6hrs too He's funny and fantastic. I gave him zero direction, he knew just what would look good. Here are 2 pics with him in them.
  8. Hey Rachel, here are the answers: 1. Duration reception: We have a LOT of dancers in my group, and 3hrs even wasn't enough. In the end, my reception was 6-1 (7hrs) and it did NOT feel like enough! Nobody wanted to leave, and they kept dancing WITHOUT music and with the lights on, until 2am when they officially kicked us out. We then moved to the jacuzzi and didn't hit our bed until 5am. It FLEW by, I didn't have a chance to dance with everyone I wanted, and it was satisfying but still not long enough. That being said, I paid $$$. Initially I did not want to spend, I have no
  9. Wow....talk about speaking too soon! Julieta was my worst nightmare. Everything she promised fell through, all lies. Yes, she did have the best prices, but you get what you pay for. In my case, I paid for a whole lot of stuff I never even got, so maybe that's not even so true either. Click here for details:
  10. None of my guests knew I hadn't shelled out extra $ for cocktails. The new terrace and tower lobby are so beautiful that there are no additional decorations I could even think of putting up. The furniture is all new and classic style. By skipping out on the cocktail hour, I did get 10 more guests for dinner. You should just look at what hour you will be there, I think snacks get placed at 4pm, so it was perfect timing for us. The appetizers are warm and cold (we had egg rolls, empanadas, and shrimp with cheese, pastries, fruit) and they put a ton of them out. Also, what we did was tip t
  11. Hi Jana, well it's still before your wedding so you have time! Did you pay with paypal? I would try to get a paypal refund, which they offer for fraudulent transactions which this is. If you decide to go with her, make sure you use credit cards instead of your checking account on paypal in case she doesn't pull through like she did to me, then at least you can try to get refunded through your credit card as well. She did such a crappy job at gazebo decor and charged me only like $50 then what dreams would have charged. Dreams did an amazing job at everything I contracted them to do. Ceci
  12. I had a horrible experience with Julieta. Here's a link to my post and pictures of her work, including my centerpieces and ceremony flowers. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/66071/do-not-use-julieta-wedding-florist#post_1493630
