personally, i'd move to the beach w/ more than 40 people.

 

didn't have those cakes. had some kind of chocolate and tres leches. neither particularly good, but that's how most of the desserts were at dreams.

Just saw this on Dreams website. Has anyone else seen this? I thought it was pretty cool. http://www.dreamsresorts.com/drepv/webcam.html

 

We're getting the Tres Leches cake, we figured, when in Mexico...plus we eat it here a lot and we like it. We're just keeping the two layer cake that comes with our package and having it cut and placed out. All the guests get a desert with their meals anyway. We know not everyone likes cake. I've been to so many weddings where barely anyone is eating the cake, I felt it would be a waste to order a cake large enough for everyone. I didn't see red velvet as a choice, I may have to change my mind!! msnparty.gif

 

We have 68 guests including us and we originally selected Las Palmas, not thinking that many would come. Now we are considering moving it to the beach. Only fear for us is that we are during the rainy season and I was told that if the beach is too uneven we have to pay to have a tractor come out and grade the beach. I could see that costing as much as the wedding itself! It is hard to picture layouts and spacing without ever having been there.

Hello!

 

I just got back from Dreams and we had our reception at Las Palmas. I would agree with Fatima.  Definietly no room.

 

We had 5 table of 8, but one of those was for the bridal party. With such a small group we loved not having a standard "head table". We saw another wedding with a sweetheart table, but it seemed that they were missing out on all the fun sitting all by themselves!

 

Even with just our 5 tables, the dance floor area was pretty small. When they announced the first dance, I figured they would be moving some stuff out of the way, but nope! It is just a small area. Is your heart set on the lounge chairs? With our short 3 hour receptions, are you sure your guests will sit on them enough to make it worth the $$$? They are so expensive! Our guests were too busy dancing and mingling. Just my thoughts, though. I think that if you didn't have the lounge chairs, you might be able to fit everything else. They could move your appetizer tables closer to the bar area, I think.

 

 

Anyway, good luch with the decisions!

I'm having a bit of difficulty figuring out the set-up for the Las Palmas Cocktail Hour and Reception. We currently have around 50-60 guests attending the wedding and so far have the following for set up:

5 tables of 8

1 head table for 15 people (all on one side- so likely 4 tables put together)

2 sets of lounge furniture

Bar

Dance area

 

Fatima is telling me that there is essentially no way to have that large of a head table and that maybe we should go with a sweetheart table which is not what we want or move to the beach. For any of you past brides or those who have visited the site- do you think this is doable and not too squishy or should we just suck it up and go to the beach even though we had our heart set on Las Palmas?

 

Thanks for your help!!

So we have decided to move to Seaside beach as we do not want to be squished by any means and this just seemed like the best thing to do. Our reception is 4 hours long (we're paying for the extra hour) as we wanted to have it as long as possible. We are just getting 2 sets of lounge furniture, each set seats 7 people (3 mini couches, one chair and a table), each set costs $165, plus we are getting some coloured pillows to go with it ($4-7 each). I am hoping this is not a waste of money for the lounge sets on the beach - any other girls out there use them? If you could do it over would you have cut them?

Also- what's the lighting like on the beach- we are getting 4 hanging lights like the one's below. Plus our DJ has lighting. Do you think this will be enough light?
