  1. Well I brought lots of LED tea lights and LED pillar candles from home because I didn't want to pay for extra lighting.. But I got to the reception on the wedding day and they put up loads of lanterns and set up the light up dance floor for free! I think the dance floor is normally $580 and the lanterns are $10 each. I'm not 100% sure how many lanterns you will need. I'm guessing 24
  2. My friend took the pictures.. and we did the shoot 2 days after the wedding.. It was so much fun.
  3. Hello jcksiano! I had my reception in the Seaside Grill and i think it would be prefect for a group of 20-25 people. Here is a couple of pictures of my reception in the Seaside Grill The pool terrace isnt very private but looks beautiful when they set it all up. This a picture i found on the internet (I was going to have my reception on the pool terrace but change my mind) Happy Planning
  4. Hello... Ive finally got my Trash the Dress photos I got married April 19th and we did our Trash the Dress shoot in Puerto Morelos.
  5. Hello.. Yes you can use the dance floor on the beach and no there is no extra charge for white napkins and table cloths
  6. Hello! I got married April 19th and all 35 of my guests stayed in a different resort.. Your guests (or you if you wish to pay?) will purchase a wedding day pass, $55 each. This makes them all inclusive at Dreams for there stay.. So they can get a drink from any of the bars. They can arrive 2 hours before the ceremony. I think most of my guests turned up 3 hours before, and I don't think it was problem. $48 is just for the reception dinner, you also have to purchase a wedding day pass for guests not staying at Dreams. These were my times.. Hope they help 4.30. North Beach Ceremony 5.00-5.30 Group Photographs 6.30-7.30 North Beach Cocktail Hour 7.30-10.30 Seaside Grill Reception After the reception we had a couple of drinks in the lobby
  7. Hello Ladies! When did you get your slideshow and how long did your photo book take?
  8. Hello Kerrimaxwell, I had the same promblem with the seaside grill. Evangelina offered it to me for free but Georgina didnt know anything about this arrangement! Just forward the email from Evangelina confirming you can use the seaside grill for free and put High Importance in the subject bar. Dont worry Georgina is lovely. she will sort it out Do the same with your emails to the DJ and Spa (High Importance)
  9. Its on the Pool Deck .. The weddings i saw on the pool deck were all beauitful!
  10. Hello.. We had our reception in the Seaside Grill. At first Gina wanted $800 to use the Seaside Grill, but I got it for free in the end because only the pool terrace was available and I really didn't want my reception there.. It took a lot of emails to get it for free. I didn't also tell her I knew past brides had used it for free!
  11. Hello Ladies Ive just got back from sunny Mexico... and everything was prefect! We flew with Virgin Atlantic from London Gatwick, apart from the flight being 11 hours it was really good. Open bar and touch screen entertainment system kept us busy. Cancun airport was stress free and easy .... Transfer to the hotel as really good, we were offered drinks and snacks, not that we needed any after all the food we got on the plane. Hotel .. We booked a garden view room for 15 nights. When we arrived we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite! Rooms, gardens, pools, beach, bars, resturants and staff are all amazing. *Cookies in the lobby are really yummy* Because we were upgraded meant we got to use the preferred club room and we got the honeymoon package! The preferred club room was really good, computers, bar and snacks served during the day. Honeymoon package included spa treatments.. they were REALLY good and a private dinner on the beach, this was also REALLY good. We also had a massage included in the wedding package. We had this the day before the wedding. again this was really good. The spa was beautiful and really relaxing. Excursions.. We really enjoyed all of them. some of them we booked with Amstar. Trips to Coco Bongos, Cancun and Playa del Carmen we walked to the main road and got the local bus. Xcaret Dolphin Swim Zip Lines and Jungle Quad Bikes Cenotes Chitchen Itza Snorkelling Sailing Sea Kayaking Coco Bongos and Cancun Playa del Carmen Puerto Morelos Wedding Day!!! Everything was prefect...i cant think of anything i would of changed or wish could of been different. We had 35 guests, all stayed in a hotel in cancun. The day before the wedding we asked the front desk if they had a room available for my husband to use (we got legally married and didnt want to see eachother till the ceremony) They gave him a ground floor room with a pluge pool, which i thought was really nice. He got to use that room till 4.30 on the wedding day. My maid of honour and bridesmaid came to the hotel at 9.30...I showed them around the hotel and they loved it! We all went to the spa at 11.00 for a manicure and pedicure. 12.00 hair and makeup.. this was REALLY BAD. I told them that my hair doesnt hold curls really well. They didnt leave my hair in the curlers.longer enough so they fell out after 1 hour. Also i have natural blonde hair and they only had brown hair slides and you could really see them. I asked for my makeup to look really natural. When i looked in the mirror i looked like a drag queen! I had that much makeup on. Luckly me and my bridesmaids found it really funny. I asked the lady nicely (sorry i cant remember for name) to remove all the eyeshadow and lipstick, then it looked alot better. Dont be put off, i just dont like to wear lots of makeup. There was another wedding group having there makeup done and they seemed to love all the eyeshadow. 3.00. Anel started taking pictures of the guys getting ready (Anel was amazing!) 3.30. Anel started taking pictures of me and the bridemaids Gina came up with the flowers which were beauitful 4.30 Ceremony on the north beach. It was a beauitful day and wasnt windly Then we took pictures on the beach and pictures around the resort.. 6.00-7.00. Cocktail hour on the beach. 7.00-10.30. Reception in the Seaside Grill.. I loved our reception, it was so much fun! I didnt pay for any lighting but they put up.over 20 white paper lights and we got the lightup dance floor for free!! i was so happy! We had the bbq buffet which everyone really enjoyed and we had the vanilla wedding cake, that was really yummy! Hope this review helps.. let me know if you have any questions about the wedding day, hotel or excursions. Also i highly recommend getting legally married in Mexcio.. it was so easy and it made it so special getting married on that beauitful beach. I will post my slideshow when i get it and i will also post my wedding video I did Trash the Dress with a friend who'sa photographer. I will post them when i she sends me them.
