    Hi ladies!! I love this forum and have so many questions

    We will most likely be getting married at Dreams and our guest list is somewhere between 20-25 people.

    How much time after the ceremony do you take for photos? I'm thinking somewhere between 1.5-2 hours, but what do my guests do in the meantime? I imagine that's the cocktail hour before the reception? Is this included in the Dreams reception fees? Did you have it somewhere other than your reception site? Or did you let your guests change/freshen up and then have the reception?

    Also, I'd love to bring my ipod for music, but am wondering if its silly to think our guests will be into dancing with so few of us...for others with such a small guest list, did you have music/dancing or just dinner?

    Finally, if we have guests not staying at Dreams, does the $89 pp fee cover both the ceremony & reception or do you have to pay it twice (as when you pay $25 pp per site for guests staying at Dreams)?

      My fiance and I decided on Dreams as well. We're allotting about 1 hour for photos. While we are taking pictures we plan on setting up a small cocktail reception for our guests with cocktails, appetizers, and a Mariachi Band.

      As for your guests dancing, I think it just depends on where at Dream you are having the reception, and what your guest list is like. I'd probably just try to designate a small dance floor so people won't feel awkward dancing.

      Based on my meeting with Yarai at Dreams, the cocktail hour is included for 20 guests if you select the gold package. After the 20th person, they charge $28/person for hours d'vours. Alcohol is open bar and included.
