    That explains a lot... we are having our reception at Seaside Grill and I"ve just been told that there will be another function happening on the beach right outside the restaurant.  This is probably because the other group wasn't allowed to be at the pool!  Hope the two DJs playing over each other doesn't turn into a nightmare  :(

    So I was reading the new Dreams 2011 wedding guide and it states that receptions at either pool location is 50 ppl max.  The only options they have for weddings with over 50 ppl is the beach, Seaside Grill (must pay the $750 if you want it to be private) or the ballroom (um no thanks I do not want to be inside unless it is raining!!).  We are expecting 50+ guests to come and I have been wanting to have the reception at the Dolphin pool.  Now my question is does this rule not matter if I booked in 2010 or am I having to go by the 2011 rules/prices?

      Would any of you brides getting married before May 12, 2011 be willing to sell me your organza/tulle that you will be bringing down to the resort?  We really don't have set colors for our wedding and since it'll be down there already, it would be pretty convenient.  If anyone is willing to, please let me know.

       

      Thanks!

        Hi Ladies! 

         

        we leave in 24 days and well I'm starting to freak out b/c I did absolutely nothing the last couple months and now we're getting down to the wire!!!

        I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but does anyone know if the resort lets you go ahead with a cocktail hour (part of the package) if you aren't willing to pay for the extra people (because honestly we have a bunch of kids, and people who don't drink....I'm not paying $25us +tax+service for these people). If they don't is the only option to cancel or pay for the additional people??

          barbiegirl - I had the same concerns right before my wedding. Don't worry about it.  They will allow you to have a cocktail party up to 20 people, as part of your package, even if you have extra guests.  We had 70 guests, and they only brought out hors deurves and servers for 20 people (didn't pay an extra dime).  The location is right next to the wedding setup and Seaside Grill, and there's a swim up/regular bar right there too so your guests can walk 20 feet and order their own drinks. Perfect setting :)

            DanniS- This is probably something you can try to get once you get down there (the Dolphin pool reception). They are very friendly and want to give you the wedding of your dreams.  Even if over email they say "No, we can't do that", I would still ask once you get to speak in person to your wedding coordinator.  I can understand the 50 people maximum though, even that seems like it's pushing it. Those pool areas are very narrow and I have a hard time seeing 5+ tables with a DJ, food, and dancing room in that small area...especially the dolphin pool!  I never saw a wedding with more than 30 people in that area, and even those looked crowded to me.  I would suggest if you have the extra cash, to rent out the Seaside Grill. That was one of the best things we did.  Ultimate privacy, no one entering or bothering your wedding party, it just felt like it was just us and nobody else.

              Thanks for this! I was seriously stressing last night while filling out the forms for the wedding planner. Ok, that's one less thing to think about!

                Just curious for past brides or possibly even brides to be who have already had decisions made about their bouquets. I sent in a picture of a bouquet that I wanted for me and my bridesmaids, very simple, just gerber daisy's in one colour, and they are actually quite small. Aurora just emailed me back to say that they would be  $100US + tax each. had any one else encountered this problem??

                  I sent her a picture of a bouquet I want with mainly Peonies in it and i got quoted $420, the strange thing is that it is very similar to one of the bouquets in the brochure which is already included in the package i bought, so i'm not sure why adding a few more peonies rather then roses is $420?? I still have to work with her on the flower issue...

                    I'm getting married May 6th and I'm taking down green, orange, and ivory organza for the canopy.  I'm not sure if that interested you or not but I will be selling it after the wedding.  So if you wanted it depending on what day you arrived I could deliver it to you or make sure Aurora or someone holds it for you there at the resort.

                      wow, that's just ridiculous! I was floored at the additional $100!
