    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.

      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.


      That's crazy! We were the ones who bought the 2 bottles of wine & used the wine cellar (over Memorial Day weekend). It was a spur of the moment thing & my brother-in-law arranged it with the head waiter the same night we were interested in having dinner. He just stopped in around 5 to ask if there was any way they could seat around 12 of us near each other later that night (since they only seat like up to 6 or 8 together). The waiter who he spoke with suggested the wine cellar and told him we would need to buy 2 bottles of wine to use the room (even though glasses of wine are free at the resort if you buy a bottle you have to pay for it regardless of the restaurant). Seems kinda ridiculous that they'd all of the sudden charge $200 for that, but I think we actually ended up ordering 4 bottles so we probably spent about that.

              Thanks Jenn.  I just realized that I can offer entree choices (I had originally been told that I had to choose only 1), so that makes one decision easier!  I have decided to do the bonfire as a welcome party in lieu of a rehearsal dinner, and I'm sooo excited about that!


              Are there any past brides who had just the speakers/ipod setup for the reception?  I am having about 35 people, and don't necessarily want to pay extra for a DJ, but I also don't want someone to have to man the ipod all night, and someone had posted on here that volume was an issue because it changed from song to song....  Also, how would you signal to everyone when it's time to cut the cake, etc?  I read a few posts that mentioned Rebeca had made the announcements, but I don't want to count on her (I can't imagine she stays through EVERY reception!).  Any insight?


              Thanks girls!  It's so great to have someone to throw all these questions to (so I can stop hearing from my FI--"I've never been there before either babe").  :)

                I am getting married on a Friday night at Dreams as well. I am also a little nervous about the noise from the Mexican fiesta night. Has anyone had a wedding on a Friday night at dreams? was noise a problem?

                  I got married on a Friday night at Dreams and had our reception on Las Palmas Terrace. We honestly never even heard the Mexican Fiesta night. They blocked off the little bridge that connected our pool to the main pool so no guests could come up there and it was great!


                  We had the ipod/speaker set up for about 30 guests and it worked out great! We definitely didn't need a dj for that many and we were able to control our song list so that was really nice. We didn't have Rebeca make any of the annoucements for cake or anything like that we just kinda decided when it was a good time to cut the cake. And in terms of volume it is really easy to just run up and change it if you need to, it will be set up in really close proximity to the dance floor.

                    Thanks that makes me feel a little better. We are having our reception on the beach. Is the mexican fiesta on the beach or main pool? Is it close to the beach?

                      as long as it hasn't changed, most of the fiesta is near the main pool. i believe there was a little on the beach, but that might have been a different night. either way, it was far enough away from las palmas.
