    I agree! Even though you guys didn't get to do the gazebo/beach, it looks like everything was awesome!  Great pics!  Our date is fast approaching--September 2 is just around the corner :D

      Welcome to the forum, Mrs. Robinson and congrats!  I think if you read through all the previous posts you will find a ton of great information.  And as our dates come closer-we'll be sure to share!  One big note--don't expect to hear quickly or often from the resort at this point :D Once it gets closer to the date-they get better about responding! :D

        We're back, and we're married!! I'll post something much longer when we get a little more free time, but here are the bullet points (again, more details later):

        • It was AMAZING. Seriously, it was everything I'd hoped for.
        • Our guests had a great time, and no one seemed unhappy at any point.
        • The food was (mostly) great.
        • Sandra was amazing. She has such a calmness about her that really helps when you're stressed.
        • The resort was exactly what we wanted for this event. More on that later...
        • The staff (bar staff and wait staff especially) were incredible!

         

        As everyone has said, everything works itself out. We had a couple of details that weren't perfect, but it was still great, and in the end I don't think I would change much. I will say (and will elaborate later), if you want spa treatments, I HIGHLY recommend booking at the Secrets Capri resort. A few of us went there the day before the wedding. Their spa is new, twice the size of DPA, and MUCH nicer (with what looked like the same rates). 

         

        Here's one of our professional pictures (from the resort photographer):

        Again, we couldn't be happier. Since we've been back, we can't stop talking about how we can't wait to go to Mexico again!

            I'M BACK!!!

             

            It was amazing! I don't even know where to being this review b/c for me everything was an A+++++++

             

            The Resort: Amazingly beautiful. There was so much for everyone of our guest to do. They all said they had the best time of their lives.  We did not plan any big events for them b/c we wanted it to feel like a vacation for them w/out any time restraints.  I think that was a good idea and allowed all of our guest to truly enjoy this time. 

             

            Food: I'm not a picky eater so I enjoyed all the restaurants. I'm not big of buffets so I didn't really go to the World Cafe too much but my husband :) did many times.  We tried all the restaurants and didn't have a complaint about any of them.  I think Justin really enjoyed the 24 hour room service a little too much :)  Overall there was something for everyone and the food was great. The food at our wedding was AMAZING. Every single person at the reception said it was the best wedding meal they had ever had.

             

            Wedding: Our wedding was awesome. I mean truly beautiful.  We went with one of the resort wedding packets and that was the best decision i have ever made.  Sandra made everything so stress free and they catered to our every need.  We got our flowers from the resort and they were amazing. Our wedding was at 5pm and it was beautiful.  We got several compliments after the wedding about how nice our wedding was. I got my hair down by the resort salon and it was beautiful. The resort photographer took our pics and they turned out great. I have no complaints and I'm glad I didn't go with any outside vendors. The resort did an amazing job. 

             

            Overall: I am SOOOOO happy I did a destination wedding. Best decision of my life :) I met a bride, Angie, who got married the same day as we did and she was beautiful and her family was so nice.  She and her husband looked amazing and their wedding was pretty awesome as well.

             

            If you have any questions please ask and I will be more than happy to answer!

                    Hello MrsRobinson12,  Thank you! We had a great time. It really does all fall into place once you are there.  We went with the Dreams of Love package.  I let Justin choose the meal b/c he is a much pickier eater than I am.  We had the Bruschetta w/ Proscuitto, Minestrone soup w/ basil, Ceasar salad w/ blackened chicken, and the main course (which no on could stop talking about) was chicken stuffed w/ spinach, cream cheese and pepper sauce over a bed of mash potatos!!!! amazing!! we also had our wedding cake which was amazing and three milk cake w/ strawberries.  We were stuffed.  I'm glad we went with the resort services. they did a great job and I didn't have to worry if things were getting done or arriving on time. it was very stress free :)
