      I do have one question- maybe I missed it somewhere on your thread, I'm sorry if I did! What menu option did you use? I haven't seen that menu in any of the other threads or on the Dreams website. Was it the gold or silver or??
      Hey girl! It's okay - I didn't have it written in my planning thread. I used the Silver Menu- and as far as I know everything was great. The appetizers we had were amazing, definitely a hit - I'll make sure I include them in my review =)

        I think I know the answer to this but I want to make sure with the ultimate package is the $750 fee included for a private party or do you have to pay this on top of the $2760 for the package?

        Also I am looking for a reception location not on the beach but with a view of the beach open air concept. Suggestions? Dolphin pool seaside grill?

                i will be doing a full review---but my best advice is trust the coordinators. I know it seems like they are hard to get ahold of but they are extremely organized and do a wonderful job.

                    The $750 is if you want to rent out a restaurant. That you would have to pay if you want to be the only people there. You can be on the beach, by a pool, or in the ballrooms for free. If you want to save money I recommend picking one of those places.

                      First of all, congrats to all the new brides who have joined in the past few weeks.

                      I got married in November at 2 pm. I wanted the 4 o'clock spot, but it was taken; then when I asked about the time slot again, it turned out the 4 pm couple canceled, but we still couldn't have that slot because it was "too late" [rolls eyes]. This is, by the way, why I still haven't written my review: there were so many things I was not happy with that I'm afraid the whole review will be just that, listing the problems. One thing I've learned: be more assertive and demanding if you want to get what you want. I was too laid back a bride, and ended up being frustrated at the wedding because things did not go smoothly the whole time.
                      So sorry to hear you are not very satisfied with your experience. You should definitely write a review, it will help other brides avoid whatever problems you had. Most of the brides are very happy with their experience and the reviews are almost all positive, so it's good to have some negative ones in a while to balance things out.

But quite honestly, it's a getting a bit pricey and stressful - which is why I decided on a destination wedding anyway, less stress and less money. Has anyone simply had a cocktail hour and dinner world cafe? How did it go?
                      A few brides have had their reception at the World Caf© and have been happy with it. I think it's a wonderful idea. A great way to still have a nice fun reception but save some money.

Was it a private bar for your wedding? Was there limited drinks? Or did you just use the resort bar? Maybe I'm totally crazy, but I don't understand how the bar works. I know that our reception comes with some "cocktails" and some dinner wine... but what about other drinks? My fiance is a former hockey player and 1/2 our guests are hockey boys, and they'll want to have a bar available. Am I going crazy? We've booked the Seaside Grill for our reception... not sure where the cocktails will be.
                      I know some have already answered this but just to clarify, it is an all inclusive resort and you can always take advantage of the all inclusive options. Where you have to pay more is where you want a special service, like bartenders to serve your group for cocktail hour, or taking over half the restaurant for your reception.

                      So yes, even if you have a cocktail hour with servers serving sparkling wine and whatever else, your guests who prefer something else can just go to the nearest bar and get their own drinks.

                      If you have a private event in a restaurant, you have to pay 750$ on top of your wedding package.

                      For a view of the beach, without being on the beach, your options would be El Patio, Seaside Grill, or one of the pools.
