I feel like I might be annoying because I have some questions for you!

I love that you had your own private bar-how did that occur?

Did you bring your own chair sashes down?

Did you have the buffet and what was your menu?

Did you do a welcome dinnre?

I am sure that I will have some others-just need to think

HI Anabel:
I will be arriving at Dreams this Thursday. I wanted to ask you 1 question about the lighting. What kind of lighting will you have for the beach reception?
Anabel: Weâ€ll set up a reflect for illuminate the beach.
Also what is the best way to make payment to you when we arrive? Cashiers Check? Credit Card? Pesos?
Anabel: The exchange rates is high so maybe is convenient pay in dollars or with credit card but we have to apply the charge in pesos so maybe is not good for you for the exchange rates.

Also I have children at the reception and want to know how much you charge for childrens meals?
Anabel: 20dlls for kidâ€s menu.

Can anyone tell me how they dealet with the payments? Thank YOU
I leave Thursday for Dreams.


Thanks,
Jennifer
We used our debit card for the reception. You have to pay so many dollars per $100 in cashiers checks. We used them for paying our band but we used the debit for the reception. Plus, you have to claim it if you bring more than $10,000 into Mexico. Plus, who wants to carry that much around in $100 cashiers checks. Just make sure to up your limit on your debit card and let them know you're going out of the country to make a larger purchase!

Great Questions Blkatz... I have some of those same ones.

I was wondering about the one about the private bar because I kind of assumed that you would get this regardless. Am I right for thinking this? Have others had to just order them from a waiter and wait for them to go get them and bring them back?

I am so confused right now and I hope someone can help me. When I was down at DT for my site visit I remember Natalia telling me for a $750 fee we could use one of the restaurants-well, now I asked her about that for our Friday night welcome dinner and she has to "ask the wedding manager"...ugh. I dont know what I will do for the welcome dinner since we are almost 40 people.

By the way-we want the buffet so I told them that we were 50 people. I guess with the photographer and her assistant, the video guy and our DJ we could be there.

what? They won't let you pay the fee to rent a restaurant for your welcome dinner? I thought that was their policy! Makes no sense to me, and lots of others have done.

 

I can see how you may not be allowed to do Seaside Grill or El Patio if resort capacity is 70% or greater, but you should be able to do the wine celar of portofino, or the ballroom. Worse case scenario I guess you can do the buffet.

I checked back to pg 1 and SunBride had said she thought the wine cellar could hold 30-40 people. I will be interested to hear what you find out because we are considering having a group dinner there on everyones last night at Dreams.

Our band, Kiko and Carlos band(highly reccomend! $950/ 45min set but they played for 3 1/2 hrs with only 1 break) has there own lighting system with colored lights that also helped with lighting. We had three floating candle center pieces with orchads in the water to help with lighting($60/table).
You can see our pics Craig Wolfrom :: Wedding Photography :: Idaho, California, Mexico, and Beyond. You'll have to scroll down past his more recent weddings. If you want to see every single pic(there are a ton!) you can go to Craig Wolfrom Photography look for Sarah and Scott. Our password is Chicago. I would also highly reccomend our photographer. We payed for his regular fee and room. He said he'd stay for as long as we would like for the same fee. He was perfect and very talented!
They will bring a mic and speaker on the beach for $150. They have an IPOD hookup available.
If you have any other questions feel free to PM me. Enjoy!!

Thanks so much! That is very helpful! And your pictures are so adorable!

Hi Ladies, we are in the final stretch WOOWHOO! woot.gif We've been busy working on our AHR so I've been a little MIA from the forum lately.

We're picking up a few last minute things as our guest list appears to be growing as well. I can't justify spending $60/centerpiece, I'm too crafty for that! So I'm headed to the dollar and craft store to see what I can come up with...wish me luck!

If you want to send me some ?s to ask the resort while we are there, perhaps we can manage to get you some more concrete answer vs staying in limbo for months prior to your wedding. Don't hesitate to ask ladies

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
