-The Gazebo wasn't as windy during the ceremony, as I thought it would be. Our day wasn't very windy anyway (however my long veil was blowing everywhere during photos). Isnt the Gazebo included in the packages????
ive read complaints that the Gazebo could be very loud during ceremonies, but we had microphone and Im pretty sure thats standard, and no one complained of that (and i didnt notice anything other than my husband!)
-As for that person we spoke to that had a bad experience, apparently there was a wedding right before hers so she felt as though everyone was rushing to put together her wedding. They quickly changed the gazebo to her colours etc.
She felt like she wasn't as important as the wedding that happened before hers.....And she just didnt like the hair/makeup people at the resort. Also, I guess because of the wedding before hers, she only had one photographer (from resort) and they were not happy with him/her. Wasn't being vocal and not directing them etc.
Im not sure how the rest of her experience was in regards to the ceremony or reception but thats just what we heard from her family. I think she was pretty upset about a lot of it though.
We were the only wedding on our day, so we had Jackis undivided attention and I didnt feel any of what that bride felt at all (then again, we didnt use resort hair/makeup or photographer either). Unfortunate that she had a bad experience. Thats one bad review I've heard in hundreds of positive ones.
The resort overall was great. I really have no complaints..We've been to mexico about 6 different times, same side of mexico. We've stayed at Barcelo, Gran Bahia, Gran Oasis, Akumal, to name a few places......Dreams PA was great. It isn't your big huge resort, which is why i LOVED it. It was small, you felt like you were important to the hotel there, they get to know you(if you let them) and these are things I love. Those gigantic resorts are just too much, if you ask me. All of the restaurants were good, some better than others. Buffett is buffett, BUT it was one of the best selections in a buffett ive had in Mexico before. Portofino's was definitely everyone fav place to eat. But Oceana was good, and so was El Patio (ive read nasty reviews about the Mexican food at El Patio, and i loved it!) Im not picky or a big complainer, and during your wedding week you should be on cloud 9! Not complaining about food or the beach. It really is lovely, all of it!! Nothing to worry about.
Jacki even threw in a couple of extra things here and there to make it perfect and we didnt pay for them. She was great.
