well I checked and my sunset is around 8 pm. Well we're not waiting that late for the ceremony! I did get a response from Rebecca - an extra hour is $7 per person renting the ipod speakers for dinner is $100.  We did change the ceremony to 5pm.

(Another one of my random questions) 

For the oot bags...did anyone pay to have them delivered to the room? Were all the bags the same or did you include a name tag on each one? Also what if someone upgrades or changes rooms... how will they get their bag? I'm trying to decide if this is something I want to hand deliver or just let the resort take care of. Thanks so much!

We did. Most of them were the same, but one was for a single guy, one for a family of 5 (with toys) & we had some extra stuff we threw in our parents' bags so we wanted to make sure the bags were given to the right people. We tied tags I made on the bags & wrote names on the back of the tags. We grouped the bags together by date of arrival & gave them all to Rebeca. She arranged for them to be delivered after each guest checked in & it worked out perfectly. DH & I were both very glad we forked over the $ to have them delivered b/c it was one less thing for us to worry about.

At this point I think what I will be doing is handing out our bags at our bon fire welcome party.  I will have the bags labeled with the guest's name and I can personally give them to each person.  This way I know that they have received them in good order and to the right person.

we handed them out when we saw our guests. there was one group that i didn't see before the wedding, so i had my mom deliver it. IMO, i think it's a nice way to personally thank people for coming. fyi, dreams won't tell you what room number people are in, but they will connect you so you can ask them yourself.

Hi everyone!  I am getting married at Dreams PV in April 2011.  I just reserved my date a month ago, and decided on a Friday ceremony and reception since all the Saturdays were already booked.  After reading a few comments here, I am nervous about the theme night on Fridays!  I am having the ceremony at the gazebo and reception at Las Palmas Terrace.  Anyone have any idea if it will be too noisy?  I had planned on renting the speakers for ipod music, but want to make sure everyone can hear it!

 

Also, does anyone have any recommendations on the food?  I am having 30-35 people, so plated menu, and I would like fish but am concerned about my guests being picky eaters.

 

I just started the planning process (and reading this thread), so I have a lot to learn!

Hi Angela and welcome!  Take a read of some of the reviews eg. Jess and Autumn had their weddings there last year and I think Kat just had hers this past May.  I actually was there on holiday when Jess was getting married but we were leaving that very day. We went to Dreams last Nov. just for a vacation. We had not yet decided on a location for our destination but after spending two weeks there and saw some weddings, had fantastic food and delicious drinks we decided to book our wedding there. The food at the resort was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good.  We are going for the fish and chicken for entree choices and calamari and soup. I read the soup was such a great hit. There are vegetarian and kids choices available too. I think if you guests are super picky well ...you can't please everyone. There is 24 hr room service and it is awesome as well.

Hope this helps.

Hey does anyone have a current theme nights list?  I've asked Rebeca like three times and she keeps ignoring that one question.  Grr. 

 

Oh and just to mention, I am renting the wine celler for a family dinner one night and it is now apparently $200US and you get 2 bottles of wine "plus more" but when I asked what the "plus more" meant I never got a response.  I think another bride bought 2 bottles of wine and was able to use it.  Apparenlty since it's popular it now costs more.  F*ckers.

April, two months tomorrow is your day!!!!

 

That is crzy, $200 for basically 2 bottles of wine since the dinner is part of the all inclusive right? 

As for the theme nights, I have 2 daily activity sheets that I kept from last year but it was I think it was for a Friday Sunday. We too asked what show would be happening on our night and Rebecca could not tell us as she said it changes but that was a few months ago when we asked. I am sure by now they should have it mapped out as to what is going on. I may try to email the hotel via their website contact to see what answer I get. I will ask about Tuesday and Wed. nights. I will let you know if I hear anything and also share it will teh BDW ladies.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
