My original 30 is now more like 15. Just a suggestion to check that out so that you can save yourself some stress. :)
    Yeah, I guess you're right. This may not even be any issue in the end. Some people have booked, but definitely not all. Thanks!

      Hi All!
      I just realized that the resort is hosting Mexican Party night the same night as my wedding. Does anyone know if this will pose a problem? I'd hate to be competing for sound. I wish I would have known this, I would have scheduled my wedding for Wednesday night instead, and took the group to Mexican night. I actually feel bad that my guests will have to miss it! For anyone just planning, Mexican Party night is every Tuesday and Caribbean night is every Friday. Just an FYI!

        Cheri- We moved our reception to the Dolphin pool due to this reason... we thought the relax pool was a little too close to all the action. It ended up working out better--I liked the setup, the lighting, and the ambience (not to mention the bar and bathrooms are right there) of the Dolphin pool as compared to the end of the Relax pool. Just my opinion though!

          Is Mexican Fiesta on the beach or around a pool area? Thanks for your input!

            I just went through your planning thread--nicely done!! I have to ask you where you got your cake topper. Hilarious!! I may copy your letter you sent out a month prior if you don't mind!

              Just learned that bonfires are no longer allowed at the resort either! I feel like I missed all the fun stuff; should've planned earlier I guess. I was told I could plan a welcome dinner on the beach with drinks and canapes for $25 pp/per hour. Uggg!!

                  Hi OceanWonderland! Check out Samuel Luna for photography! He's great and a little more affordable!

                    Anyone out there have a schedule of events? I realize these may potentially change, but I'd like to get an idea. Is there really activites/shows every night? I am considering trying to push back my wedding from Tuesday night to Wednesday so everyone won't miss the Mexican Fiesta night; is this crazy But then I know we have kiddos who really want to do the campout on the beach and I don't want to miss that either. Not sure what to do!

                      Another quick question: I'm looking into purchasing koozies for guests, but am not sure of what size to order. Any former brides have suggestions? They have tall koozies for bottles and then standard for either cans or regular cups. I'm not sure how Dreams serves their drinks.
