Dreams Puerto Aventuras Brides - POST HERE!

Has anyone seen any photos online of the resort (construction, etc.) I am so curious as to what the resort will really look like---aside from the same photos that have been on the Dreams site since this summer.

Also, Baltobabe on Trip Advisor just returned from a site visit at the new Dreams PA. She said she wasn't allowed to take photos because it wasn't finished, but did make some very nice comments about it on Trip Advisor.

For right now, I went with the free (Wedding in Paradise) package, because I am just now sure about the Silver or Gold dinners...I was told that I could upgrade later, and obviously add some of the extra features)My travel agent has been the one to communicate with Jacy for me (I am copied on the emails), so maybe that has been why I have gotten responses...not sure.
Like you, I want to be near the water for our reception...I've pulled up quite a few photos from when the resort was a Sunscape and also looked at the resort map on the Dreams website and it looks like three of the restaurants (Italian, Seafood, and El Patio-Mexican) are all on the beach. It also stated in the e-packet that El Patio could be rented out if the hotel occupancy was at 60% or below, for a fee of $750...I would be very interested in doing this, I think. Anyone else who knows more about this, PLEASE chime in...
I agree that the options in PDC would be rather expensive...I am hoping to work something out with one of the on-site restaurants, other than the buffet.

I was looking through my info last night and in what I have they said if you rent out the restaurant you also have a $18.00 set up fee per person. I don't have anything saying the hotel has to be below 60% occupied. You are so lucky that your travel agent is corresponding with Jacy. Mine hasn't done anything except book the rooms. Also are you thinking about a DJ? And how about a photographer?
Well have a great day and I will talk to you later.

I have attempted to attach the wedding guide that I received to this post. PLEASE let me know if you can open, otherwise I am happt to email it to anyone that wishes.
Towards the end (Reception options--p.14) is where they talk about the renting out El Patio. Based on the file name, it looks like this version of the guide was generated in mid-September, but I received it mid-October.
As far as photographer, I think that I am just going to go through the resort and use their photographer...it seems like the least hassle and I am all about stress-free. We splurged on really nice engagement pics and I also have a couple amateur photographers in our friends / family group. I am hoping to work out a lower price than the stated $440, because all I really want is the digital CD with the images and the rights and will get my own prints (great site to order prof. quality prints --Mpix.com---I highly recommend).
I think that we are going to rent the audio equipment and have a loaded Ipod for both the ceremony and reception. I read in one of the Dreams Tulum threads that a bride rented this equipment and used for both...I am hoping to do the same. We are kind of particular about music, and I would rather pay $150 for the whole time to have what we want exactly---I am also a budget bride in case you can't tell
Please let me know if you all have any questions or comments...I would love to hear everyone else's plans!!
