You make sure you ask the bartender to add extra shots. They use 1/2 shot of alcohol for a margarita. My father who was a bartender/bar owner told them that was not the way to make a drink, they advised him that they have to follow dreams rules unless the person requesting the drink asked for additional shots. So therefore, for one drink you need to ask for 2 additional shots or even three to actually be able to get a good stern drink... HAPPY DRINKING. Oh ya, and also.... all their alcohol is HOUSE alcohol meaning no name brand alcohol except for Kaluah. Their tequila is yellow and alright, their Vodka is like drinking acetone. hahah. The first night we were there we all asked for Vodka shots (Absolute or GreyGoose) and they brought us some type of acetone tasting Vodka (House) that sent my MOH straight to the bathroom to puke and then up to her room to shower 10 times and barf all night, she got sick off of it. So avoid the vodka, make sure its ABSOLUTE. Definately no shots of Vodka, and if you do then dont say I warned you. I recommend Absolute Mandarin with 7-up... sooo goood and not many calories!!shots.gifshots.gif

How were your guests as far as being sick? I know some people are bound to get sick at some point, but was anybody sick the whole time?

When I went to Punta Cana a few years back I ate & drank everything & I was perfectly fine, until we got home..LOL but a friend of mine was sick the whole trip sad.gif

Thanks for all the tips! My group is full of big drinkers so I am sure all the bartenders will know us by name:)

If you post any more pics, let us know...I would love to see them!
PS - you looked stunning!

I got sick one day and I had non stop bathroom issues but I think that was from the milky drinks so I stopped drinking those. Then my daughter got sick, she couldn't use the restroom for about 3 days and was cramping bad, shes 7. I had a few of my guests also complain of cramping and not being able to use the restroom for a few days so I purchased Mylanta from the store across the street XOXO and gave it to my guests to drink it. Seemed like it helped. My FI had nonstop bathroom issues too the entire time he was there, heehee but again I think its the milk in the drinks and all the heavy food. Dreams Cancun has a Dr. on call that charges an arm and a leg. My MOH was playing pool volleyball and broke her acrylic and the nail came off also. He was charging $150.00 to clean out the nail and bandage it up. Shes a nurse so she was able to do it in a few seconds just borrowed his stuff.muscle.gif

    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
