Our driver from Dreamsday was great (Marc Anthony) so it made it fly by too.

We decided to have the ceremony in the chapel. I've been searching and searching for photos of wedding ceremonies in the chapel with no success. Can past brides please PM me with photos for inspiration? (pretty please?) We haven't quite decided on reception dinner yet - we are thinking the wine cellar (indoors) and we are only expecting around 20-25 ppl but I don't know where and how we could have our first dance! Any suggestions?
Hi, we are having the chapel for our ceremony and our reception on the beach. We have chosen the wine cellar as our bad weather location ( god willing NOOOOOO!) We are doing the cocktail hour poss in the courtyard outside the chapel and this is also where we will do our first dance before dinner cos we are doing a salsa routine that is hard enough anyway without having the joys of sand to deal with!!! We will then just dance barefoot in the sand for the reception.

I just thought I should give you a heads up in terms of your first dance they have a strict no music, no dancing policy for the wine cellar so you will def have to do your first dance before you go to dinner during your cocktail hour or later on in the disco.

Hope this helps.

Would it be worth it to set it up at the adult section where it would be more quiet?!

I really appreciate your feedback! It is so tough trying to imagine how these things would work!!
Hey Girl!
I wanted my reception at the dolphin pool for a 5pm reception also, but Aurora emailed me to "offer" me the relaxed pool, so I guess I have to have it at the relaxed pool. I've read some reviews where the brides were initially worried about kids being in the pool, but it wasn't an issue. I think the dolphin pool will be BEAUTIFUL as you can hang up lights/lanterns on those columns. Kindda wish I had that location, but I guess the relax pool will do for me!! =)

I am still undecided if i should have my reception indoors at the ballroom or at the relax pool. I am starting to feel stressed about planning, but mostly for the reception back at home. I think with the help of the planners at Dreams things will go smoothly.

Hi Amymarie!
I am getting married on May 21st!!! So I'll see you there =) I am bringing down a couple of things...my wedding is not going to be a typical "elegant" beach wedding- we're putting mexican themed little donkeys and maracas and little woven sombreros and BOTTLES OF TEQUILA on serapa colored placemats in the center of the tables. Our reception is now at the relaxed pool so I'll probably bring A LOT of candles for lighting as the tikki torches are $150 for 3 at the resort... I don't think you'll have trouble clearing customs, just bring receipts so I hear. Don't feel stressed out! If you want to use some of my decorations you are more than welcome to, I am arriving on May 16th to the resort =) Just remember to give them back by Friday of course! hahaha. xoxo

Hi AchiCAp0547!!
Love your decorating ideas! Please let me know if you'd be interested in passing any of it down. I'm going for the whole "fun" Mexican concept too! I'm arriving on the 21st and my wedding is on the 25th. I'll see you there!!

Sure! Anything I use you can have it. The only thing I would be concerned about is if guests take the donkeys/moraccas/sombreros etc. as "souveneirs". (mmm I guess I should be careful lending them out before my wedding just incase people take them as souveneirs, I never thought of that) I wouldn't if I was a guest, because I wouldn't want to lug anything back with me, but who knows.
I am bringing a bunch of clear glass candle holders, I doubt very highly ANYONE would take those, so that might be a sure thing, you can have all of those, just bring tea lights for them =)
oh and May 25h is my birthday!! xoxo

Just an FYI - I wouldn't count on candles for any kind of light... we had pillar candles inside hurricane glasses and those wouldn't even stay lit (they put dessert plate on top of them, so they were lit but didn't help the "look"... haha). It's just so windy that they just don't stay lit. Exposed candles like tealights would have no chance!

Thanks Michelle. I did not know the no music/dancing policy in the wine cellar. I never thought about doing our first dance before the reception - that might be the solution. Just out of curiosity, how are you planning on introducing the first dance?

Thanks again!

Hi Blkatz, I just checked out Dreams425 wedding review and she had her wedding on the beach - she did have a few pictures in front of the chapel.

 

Michelle - Are you planning on decorating the chapel for your ceremony? If so, can you share? I'm thinking flowers on the benches but I decide if I want organza on the benches as well? and also thinking about adding flowers that hang from the lights?

 

Thanks.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
