Thanks to everyone!
I do have some questions that people may be able to help me with.
1) Has anyone switched out the cocktail hour? What did you get for it? I would like to switch it for the cost of the extra guests for dinner.
2) Is the sound system for the reception compatible with iPod? Did you play music through dinner??
3) I really have no clue how to do this reception thing. We are going to have a first dance, but that is about it. ANy suggestions how to keep it fun and how to get the party started when dinner is finished???
4) what time do you recommend getting my hair and make-up done at? My wedding is at 4pm.
I'm sure that I will have a thousand more questions as time is counting down....only 6 weeks until we leave!
Thank you, I really appreciate it!
KelZavs answered many of your questions....I do know that you can switch out the cocktail hour for more people at the reception (I think 10 or 15 more guests). My appointment at the spa is at 11 am and our wedding starts at 4 pm. It's for me, 2 BMs, 1 MOH, my mom and FI's mom. We're getting our hair done, my make-up done, and mani's. The photographer is coming to my room at 3 pm to take "getting ready" pics so I wanted to have plenty of time without stressing out.
6 weeks?!? When's your wedding date? We're getting married sep 24th
Hey Ladies, Just wanted to share with you girls that i just got back from my site visit and loved it. I actually stayed at the Dreams Riviera Cancun and was so disappointed how close the sunbathers were to the actual ceremony site as well as the beach reception. I am so relieved that I picked Dreams Cancun! Dreams riviera is a lot newer but the wedding areas cannot be compared to Dreams Cancun. I am sending my save the dates and can't wait for my guests to start the booking. I have a question for you guys..how soon in advance can i send my invitations? I am a little late in sending the save the dates...so should i just wait a couple of months?? All my info is on my website so for those who book right away should i still send them an invite? I am a very clueless bride. THanks
hey girls!!! well im home sweet home....and a Mrs.!
i promise to get a review up, but our home reception is two weeks for today - so let the chaos start again!
i just really quickly wanted to get on here and say that our wedding was a true test of the capabilities of the dreams staff - and i could not have asked for more from them....we had a monsoon mid reception and they kept everything together - cecilia was a lifesaver.
review coming soon!
congrats to nadine too!
yay congrats!!! glad to hear everything came out great!
