    Again, thanks!  $25 per person for the restaurant isn't so bad if your rehearsal dinner group isn't too large.  The $48 is getting a bit expensive.  Please let us all know when you hear if there is a cost to have the rehearsal itself.

     

    I am thinking of doing the rehearsal dinner as a chance to get just the families together for a little while.  We are only having family in the wedding party, so it might be a good opportunity to have both sides get together without friends around.

     

    What is everyone else thinking as a reason to have or not to have a rehearsal & dinner?

If you want to have it on the beach, terrace or garden it is 48$ pp. Sorry I sent the wrong info first. Claudia said she would need to know ahead of time so that she could block off that area and if it is at a restaurant it needs to be between 6:30-9pm.

      Hi Carolina,

       

      Thank you so much for your review. It has been really helpful. I am getting marry at Dreams on May 22, 2011. I am glad to hear that Claudia is of better help since she is my WC. However, it is taking her a long time to get back to my emails but knowing that she is really busy i understand. I was hoping maybe you can answer some of my questions.

       

      Did you have Dreams create your centerpieces too? My fiance and I was hoping to make our own centerpieces but need to order some flowers through a vendor so we can create the centerpieces ourselves. Did you like your centerpieces?

       

      Was your flowers at the gazebo created by dreams?

       

       

      I love your bouquet and is consider ordering my flowers from the same place. thank you so much for your reviews.

        @clgriffi7..on the dinner, depending on the size of your group, you may not necessarily need to organize an official rehearsal dinner.  Many of our family members wanted us to all do dinner together several nights and the restaurants were very accomodating when we all just showed up.  One night, there was 14 of us that hit Oceana, the seafood restaurant, and they just put all of us at tables next to each other. Another night there were 10 of us that went to Himitsu, the Japanese restaurant, and they quickly pushed tables together and seated us all together.  Again, depending on the size of your group, a planned dinner may not be needed in order to "get everyone together". We had PLENTY of time with our family and friends during our stay from meals, to gathering at the Rendezvous lobby bar nightly to just hanging out on the beach all day together.

          Ladies - another random question based on what I have seen on the forum:  is there anywhere to make use of the paper lanterns w/ LED lights (for the cocktail hour or reception)?  I like the look of the lanterns, but they obviously need to be able to hang from something.  Any thoughts?

           

          Also, what are you planning or what did you do for table numbers?  I am wondering what would work with the potential wind on the beach.

           

          Thanks.

            Hey for table numbers my FI and I travel alot around the world so we are going to name each table after a country we have been too and put pictures from us in that country on the table. We thought that would incorporate us into it.

              Naming the tables after places you have traveled is such a wonderful idea!  I had some friends that did this and it was so cool getting to see a glimpse of the many wonderful times they have already had together!

                  I'm interested in having fire dancers at my reception does anyone know any vendors? The first quote I got was for $1500 per hr with one hr min. But I was onlynlooking for a 20-30 minute show. Any suggestions.

                    For those of you wondering if there is a place to hang lanterns and such, if you have your reception on the terrace, you can hang stuff.  There is an overhang above the terrace that I saw them hanging decor from for another wedding during our stay.  You can also put the lanterns on the ground.  We didn't purchase lanterns for our wedding, but when we came out onto the terrace for our reception, Cecilia had thrown in some extra decor for us free of charge and she placed some of the round paper lantern things around the floor. They were held down with a water bottle filled with sand on the inside. She put clusters of them around the perimeter of the terrace so they were not in the way but looked pretty nice out out there.

                     

                    I'm working on my review from our 01/22/11 wedding...and I've got some great tips and extras that I haven't seen other brides post about.  I'll try get it on here this weekend or early next week!

                     

                    Debbie  :)
