Thanks Jessica!  That definitely makes me feel better about the music and reception area. 

 

I think the only thing I'm still undecided on at this point is the photographer.  If any couples used the Dreams photog and could tell me about their experience that would be helpful.  I think I'm leaning toward hiring an outside photog, just because they seem to be much more artistic than the Dreams photog, and I definitely want to do a day after shoot.

Not sure if this will impact anyone else....but I just got an email from my travel agent:

 

"Effective immediately the spa will be closed for renovations." 

 

She mentioned that the spa will be providing limited services in the presidential suite.

We are trying to pick our cocktail hour canape, appetizer, dinner and dessert menu now. Does anyone have any recommendations or suggestions for what to pick? I have read through the forum and it sounds like the poblano cream soup is one that everyone likes but I haven't read much about any other menu items. If you all have heard of a canape, appetizer, dinner or cake flavor that is really good please let me know!

I just got the following response from Rebeca ....which makes me feel a little bit better:

"The spa building is being closed for renovations, but they are still offering the services at one of our presidential suites, so you do not have to worry about that, actually if it makes you feel better, we just had 4 weddings last weekend and all brides and bridesmaids were able to get their hair, manicure, pedicure, massages, etc."

We are getting married in a couple of weeks so I will let you know how everything turns out, but below is our menu which might give you some ideas:

 

Appetizers for cocktail hour: ( We picked our 6 all from the  Mexican themed appetizers)

Tostadas of beef, Panela cheese in chipotle sauce, Acapulco shrimp ceviche on on tartlets, mini tamales, mini tacos dorados, and sopes with Mexican Sausage

Main Course: (Surf & Turf) Fillet Mignon on a red wine sauce & garlic butter lobster tail served with risotto and vegetables.  Not sure what the first course will be yet. 

Cake:  Thinking about the 3 milk cake and Ice cream is FI's favorite foods- so we will also have a ice cream bar as well.

Wow, I didn't even have "surf & turf" as an option but it sounds delicious.  My options for the "silver" menu kinda suck.  Are you getting the "ultimate" wedding package?

After reading through this entire thread and several of the reviews from past brides, the tres leches cake is the only one that multiple said was good (otherwise cakes and desserts in general got pretty bad reviews).  Rest of food seems to all have pretty good reviews!

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
