      Hi Ladies,
      Can anyone tell me what side of the resort is best to stay at? The Dreams side or the Hacienda side?
      Thanks

        This can all depend on a persons taste but my wedding planner has said most of his clients have preferred the Dreams Section. It is the newer section and the area in which they will ask you if you ant to pay to upgrade when you check in. The rooms are more modern and situated closer to the pool. People tho have compained that the Dreams section is more noisy as you hear people in the pools and the noise of the restaurants. I have booked the Honeymoon Suite in the Dreams Section. Other brides can give you their opinions of course. www.tripadvisor has tons of reviews and mostly all of them have said the Dreams Section is better. The other section has older rooms but more of an authentic Mexican feel.

          A few questions for those that have a minute and have the answers. Is there a set day of the week that the hotel does the movie under the stars, the themed shows, fire dancers? I am trying to get an idea of what to coordinate for all of my guests? Also has anyone had their reception on the beach with candles? Do they stay lit? Has anyone had the Three Milks Cake option as their wedding cake? I leave next Thursday for Dreams and am trusting per all the other posts that everything will be wonderful but I still have so many what ifs. I dont really want to pay $150.00 for the speaker system if the ipod docking stataion works but I think I read on one of the posts that some were wired in the room. Anyone know of a place that I can go buy a small speaker system that works with an ipod touch? I just want to have music playing during dinner, etc.
          Thanks!!!!!!!!!

            Hi everyone!

            I've been MIA for a week as I was on vacation in Jamaica! Unfortunately, we got crappy weather and so the vacation was a bit of a disappointment. Obviously still better than being at home but not good enough for all the money we spent! I will be posting a review soon in the Jamaica section.

            Anyways, just spent an hour looking over the past few pages and here are answers to some of the questions that weren't covered. Thanks to everyone helping out with the answers as there has been a lot of questions lately! Saves me some time and also, I'm starting to feel like I'm not as good at answering questions as my wedding was now almost a year away!!!

            I had a tres leche, 2 tier and it didn’t sink at all. It was not that liquidy, more like a pudding in the middle.

            Thanks everyone!
            There are a few pictures of table set-ups on page 2

            The order of the ceremony for both the legal and the symbolic is on page 1 (the symbolic one was just recently added in updates last month). The symbolic one is right in the text of the ceremony part of the unofficial guide whereas the legal one is in the attachment section

I don't want to order too much, or get down there and have it not be enough.
            I’ve posted this info like 1000x in the threads and the Q&As of my picture thread and review thread but obviously I should add it to page 1 as people still ask all the time :) I should have posted it right in the review as I guess people don't read the Qs and As

            I ordered my tulle from idearibbon .com

            For the gazebo, I bought one bolt of turquoise 54” wide and 40 yards long. They had their own white tulle that they used which I would guess was about as long. So I guess the total amount needed is approx 80 yards (including the resort’s white tulle if you want to use that, and if it is still available).

            For the chairs, I brought the small rolls that are 6” and 25 yards long. That was enough for 8 or 10 chairs, but the ends were really long so if they had cut it a little shorter it probably could have done 12 chairs.

            I can only answer only one of your questions, as unfortunately I threw out my event schedule (and it probably has changed in the past 10 months so maybe somebody else can answer). For the candles, mine did blow out. You would have to put them in holders that are high enough to shield them from a wind. I would guess that having the holder approx 3 or 4 inches above the flame would probably be enough.

            My wedding was a thursday and that was the night of the mexican fiesta. Not sure if that's still the case.

            They had movies every night I think. Definitely more than once.

            We missed the fire dancers

              Oh yeah, I don't think I posted this before leaving, a whole bunch of changes have been done to page 1, I have updated a bunch of sections of the guide based on the info people have been posting. A big thanks to Carly, our moderator who makes the edits for me (it used to take us so long but now we have come up with a really quick system). The only thing that is not up to date is the bride list and detailed bride list. We updated them in January but there were more new brides after that so it needs to be updated again.

              Anyways, all this to say it might be worth it for upcoming brides to have another look at page 1 if you haven't in a while. Also, try to check there for your answers before you post questions because often the answers are there but otherwise feel free to ask away :)

                      Hi Girls!!!!

                      I have been on but haven't posted in a while. Congrats to Lulu!

                      I just found out that I will be having an unexpected guest at the wedding. We just found out we're pregnant, so I guess I will have a (little or mabe rather large) baby bump in my wedding dress!
