    I Love the flowers, although our budget just doesn't allow us to have real ones.  I have tried to come up with something that is a bit different, light weight, and incorporates the beach theme. I am nervous though that it will look lame. ahhhhhh!!! I am bringing a bunch of shells to surround itIMG_2971.JPG abdbattery opperated lights to have it light up.

      Those are beautiful!!! Just want to warn you with one thing, if your having your reception on the beach or on the terrace these may blow away, its so so windy at both those places we had light weight photo frames and they kept blowing over.

        OK, thank you!! I have them attached to a charger,(hot glue gunned it) and the charger is going to be full of shells, so I'm hoping it will help a little with weighing them down!!!

            "PM" is private message - so you can communicate with another bride outside of the thread.  If you hold your mouse over the downward arrow next to a bride's screen name you will see a drop down menu that includes "Send PM".  When you receive a PM (or at least I have it set up this way), it will send an email to you to let you know you have a communication.

             

            So please try doing that with my screen name and put your email address in the message.  The reason for asking for your email address that way is because it is best not to post your email in the forum in case someone on the web wants to use it for spam.

              Hi!!

               

              I am working with a wedding coordinator/travel agent here and even with their help, it took a while to get a response from Claudia.  So don't worry, just try to be patient.  Even though sometimes it is sooo hard!!

               



              Hi everyone, I just submitted my deposit for my Ultimate Wedding Package for 2012, but I haven't heard a response yet. I sent it to the Ohio lockbox address, does anyone know how long it takes for them to respond?

                Hi Girls,

                 

                My RSVP date for the guests is coming up at the end of this week.  We are hoping to have a final (or at least close to) final guest count.  Right now we have 60 people booked and I had reserved the Club Terrace for my reception.  I was beginning to get nervous on whether or not we would all fit there (as well as a DJ and room to dance).  So, my wedding coordinator here is setting up a conference call with Claudia sometime within in the next 2 weeks.  Are there any pressing questions that you guys have that I can ask her while we are on the phone???

                 

                Let me know!

                  I'm finally booked!! 

                   

                  I've seen lots of photographs of cakes from other brides galleries and they don't look very nice. Can I choose an outside bakery?

                    Meghan -

                     

                    60 people?!  Congrats on getting that many guests, I won't be any where near that number!  Thanks for offering to ask questions for us, I can't think of any for myself.  I hope you get to have your reception where you want to have it....

                      Congratulations!!!  When have you booked your wedding for?

                       

                      I agree, it seems that the Dreams Cancun cakes aren't quite as pretty as the wedding cakes that you could get from a specialty baker back home.  For that reason I will definitely be looking at the cake pictures that the wedding coordinator at Dreams has as examples and picking a style they are best able to execute instead of getting my heart set on a style that just won't end up looking good.

                       

                      My guess is that you could bring in an outside cake but not only would you have to pay the baker but you would also have to pay an outside vendor fee.  Maybe Meghan can ask that question for you...
