Okay, so I've decided that I will probably bring some paper lanterns for decorations for the sake of photos. (The pics with bright colors always look the best-IMO. So my question is with having my reception on the beach is there actually somewhere to hang the lanterns from? I also have a color-opinion question if you girls don't mind helping?? My dress is champagne in color with accents of red and pink flowers in the back. I am thinking about decorating with red, aqua and orange (my favorite colors, plus I think they add the perfect pop for pics) Do you think this will look okay? I'd love some advice as I've never been to this resort and it's so hard to picture in my mind. Thanks girls!!

Hi Cheri. If you go to page 260 of this forum, you will see some images of beach setups with hanging lanterns...they are very pretty. it looks like they hang them between tall wooden posts in the ground...i'm sure they would swag them from trees if you're on the beach near them.

Cheri,
How are ya?!? Are you soo Excited your wedding day is coming.:) it will be FUN!But i am considering changing my time because i was thinking if i have my ceremony at 6:00PM thats right around sunset(give or take a hour) and we wont have alot of time for Photo's. Also with a Cocktail hour that will take us to 7ish then you figure everyone will arrive at the dinner location around 7:30 that will give us only 3hours to cram in dinnder cake and a Dance with out having to pay a per person per hour fee after 10:30PM. so i think if we move it up we will have more time.
Anywho.. I noticed your from Colorado.. So am I. But anyways..
you were asking about the lanterns and the resort. It's amazing. I Love all Dreams Resorts. But this one is very nice.. Large but nice. You will love it! if you have any questions or anything feel free to ask. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!!!

So, the day we were flying out, we drove down to Tulum (we visited there in the past) and set the date, etc. :) Anyhow, we're kinda starting over...but we are leaning toward the beach for the wedding and the dolphin pool area for cocktails and reception. This site has been so great...there is sooooo much to read.

Congrats on your upcoming wedding and thank you again!

Hi Tara,
Congrats & am glad to hear you're all set!! I'm from NY as well and am looking into DT for 2011. How pleased were you with the appearance of the resort, ceremony and reception location? Are you having a DJ and if so, who did you choose? TTYL :)

Hey Danielle! Nice to meet another Denver bride! I see what you're saying with the pictures and sunlight. I know the sun sets around 7:30 that time of year so I guess I was thinking either I'll need to take some pics before the ceremony or basically miss cocktail hour. I do like the timing of it all though because I figure the ceremony will be from 6-6:30, cocktail hour from 6:30-7:30 and then reception from 7:30-10:30. I was told the receptions were only 3 hours and that they had to end by 10:30. I know it will all be crammed in there, I just didn't want there to be a lulll in between anything.
Anyway, are you bringing decor with you? I am so back and forth with this.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
