    How did you find the pool deck for dance space? I'm on the fence between the beach and the two pools, just wondering your thoughts!

        I wanted to share some of my photos from my wedding May. I felt that the most stressful part of planning the wedding was choosing the site for the private reception. We chose the Adult/Relax Pool, and it was perfect! It felt very private, the most common concern about that site from reading this forum is the lighting and wind. Lighting was def not an issue at all, and it is windy at all of the outdoor reception sites! We brought all our own decorations, they were set up perfectly. The centerpieces we chose were $65 each, however, one came free with the wedding package, and they allowed me to sub a centerpiece for the bridal bouquet that came with the package (I brought my own real touch bouquet), so I only had to buy 2.

        Anyway, hope the photos help you with your wedding planning! DT is the perfect resort, I would choose it again and recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat!

          Still trying to decide where to have the reception... my fiancĀ© kind of wanted to have it on the beach, but the pics I have of the setup right next to the ceremony location looks pretty barren. For a group of about 20, with dancing, what does everyone recommend? We're bringing down some lanterns with us, but I don't really want to pay for any more lights on top of that.

            Hello girls, I wonder if any of you past brides can help? We are bringing our own tulle to dress part of the canopy - how wide does the tulle need to be?

              I checked out your wedding photos and your day was incredible!

              Are you able to point me in the right direction for Angel's contact information, does she have a website? Did you give her photos of exactly what you wanted for the table centerpieces?

               

              I saw you had your reception at the dolphin pool. Did you like that location? Natalia just emailed me back and said that the pool terrace is available for our reception, we had originally thought we would have it at the Wine Cellar. But after seeing photos of your photos and others, we decided we wanted it outside.

               

              I guess our choices are the dolphin pool terrace or the relaxation pool terrace. Just was curious what your thoughts were since you have been there and had your reception outside.

               

              Thanks!


              Sorry I'm just now seeing this.  I hope you got in touch with Angel with no problems, I just love her! I actually had a friend last month who is getting married in Feb. and when she contacted Angel she used my name so Angel said she would make a special exception and add her order since her wedding is in Feb.  so she can be pretty awesome about things. 

               

              As far as reception goes I absolutely loved having our reception at the Dolphin Pool it was perfect I wouldn't change the location at all.  Also to all brides make sure you take extra care of your wait staff because they are amazing...we actually pulled ours out on the dance floor with us and everything.  We did the rehearsal dinner in the wine center which is great, but for a reception you can't do much for music so if you are planning on dancing that's not where you want to be.  We also found the wine cellar to be very hot, so perfect for rehearsal dinner's or a no dancing reception, but not otherwise.  Just work with Fernando on the wine cellar not the WC's.

                Aurora told me that the arch is 2.2 meters high, and 2.5 meters wide, as well as 2.5 meters deep. Heads up - we're bringing our fabric too, and set up is $150 for a pretty basic look if they do it for you.

                  Hi Sheena,

                  I am just curious as to which wedding package you are getting. I emailed Natalia my coordinator last week in regards to the fee for them setting up decor that we bring and she told me it was 4$ a person. I know that if you get the Dreams of Love of Ultimate package, the set up fee is supposed to be covered. I know if you have more then 20 guests, you do have to pay the set up free. I just wanted to make sure that you and I both got the same information.

                   

                  Happy planning and thanks for the measurements!

                    I got the Dreams of Love. And since I have programs and menu cards, they are also charging me the $4 a person as well as $150 to literally throw white tulle over the arch (I just want it to hang, not wrap) and another $150 to set up the paper lanterns I'm bringing. I'd understand if I had a lot of decor or if I wanted something elaborate done to the arch, but neither is the case. I've pretty much told my fiancĀ© that he's putting up the tulle because I refuse to pay that much for it. I'm a bit cheap when it comes to stuff like that :).

                      Oh and we have 16 guests. The free setup is for putting out chairs - has nothing to do with decor.
