Does anyone have Las Palmas Terrace reception pictures they could share??

 

here are a few from our reception in May. We didn't have extra decorations or lighting for the site, but did pay for the lounge furniture which many people enjoyed.

So sorry for all the stress Dreams2011! I'm glad you fought for the discount- you deserved it! That is my biggest nightmare at this point!

 

I have been a stress case this past week - we are getting married in 10 weeks and I feel like we have so much to do! That review did not calm my nerves! shots.gif

 

One question for you - how did you have such a detailed set-up all ready, as far as tables and such? I have no idea the set-up (well other than pics) to make such a detailed plan! Any advice is appreciated!

Hi,

 

Does anyone know on Mexican fiesta nights what time the fireworks start/end? How long do they last? We are getting married on a Friday and I was going to surprise my fiance with fireworks but now I don't know what to do, if they already have them that day. I just don't want them to go off in the middle of speeches or something. Has anyone had their wedding on a friday? We are having our ceremony/reception on the beach.

 

Thanks :)

Anyone have an email address for Louise? Also, past brides..... Anyone rained out in late May/early June? And if so, where did the move you or what did you do?

How many people are you having at your wedding? I can give you some good ideas for sure, but let me know how many people as that is helpful.

We had our wedding on a Friday. We didn't see any fireworks put on by the resort, but there were fireworks coming from near PV (unless the resort did put them on but from off resort property... they didn't seem that close). They were later in the evening (probably 9ish). We had our ceremony & reception on the beach as well. We didn't hear any noise from the fiesta (we were at the Seaside beach), but we had our music cranked pretty loud. Any questions, let me know.

Oh and by the way, I was quoted $250 for the bonfire last year. I did confirm with Louise. Not sure if the price went up since then?

 

We just had ours about 10 days ago and it was $300.

We weren't rained out (5/29), but they say rainy season starts early June & sure enough we saw a wedding rained out on June 1st. They were setting up on the las palmas terrace until it started raining (fairly hard) and then they moved the reception to the seaside grill (which was closed for the wedding). We walked over there & it was set up beautifully!

There was a theme night as well and that was moved to the ballroom near the preferred tower.

I'm pretty sure they';; honor whatever price you were quoted (prices do seem to change on pretty much everything yearly) - just remind your WC. Ours was also $250 in May.

 

 

 

To help with table layouts for the reception, I used weddingmapper.com to do a seating chart & then printed it out to give to the WC - just to show them how many tables we needed & how many people per table.

This is for any past Dreams bride.

Is there anything that, looking back on your wedding at Dreams, you would change/add/do differently?

 

I have such OCD when it comes to planning anything that doing a DW has really been like testing myself since I feel like I can really only do so much until I get down there and even then I can't change much.
