    Ashleydawn85 -

    We had 4 guests stay outside the resort. They were able to come in whenever they wanted, but had let the resort know beforehand. For the wedding, we let the WC know and gave her their names. We paid for their cost of entry that day and also had to pay extra for their cocktail/dinner at the wedding. There was no problem.

     

    AliMcBaal-Do the sign!!! It came in handy and it looked cute!! Vistaprint was a God for all things wedding related!

      Did you bring graham crackers / chocolate down to make s'mores or did you just use what Dreams provided to you at the bonfire?

        Such a great idea with the lawn sign - thanks for the idea!  I'm going to look into it.  Our bonfire is on the same night as the hotel's bonfire so definitely want to keep the unwanted guests out of our private function.

          Kerrib - Did you buy the small or large lawn sign? did it fit in your luggage?

            They have it on Wednesday nights.  Juan from the resort sent me this calendar that he said is 99% confirmed for October.

             

             

             

            And I bought 2 small lawn signs.  I was worried the large would be too large and i wouldn't be able to fit it in my suitcase!

              Did anyone go to the mexican fiesta? how was it?

              The fiesta is the same night as our wedding so we are thinking about possibly incorrporating that into our time line of things but only if its worth incorrporating. lol

              input greatly appreciated.

                We went to the Mexican Fiesta when we visited the resort. There were 2 weddings that night. One bride had her reception at Las Palmas and the other bride that was there just had her group all meet up at the Mexican Fiesta. They have vendors, tons of food and performances.


                My wedding is the same night as the Mexican Fiesta as well. I don't plan on incorporating it at all since we will be having a cocktail hour and dinner. By the time we are done, it would be 10:30 and the Fiesta would be over with. Hope that helps!

                  Is there anyone who is having a cocktail hour or had one? I'm looking for some insight on what the setup is like. We are getting married at Oceana and having our recption at Las Palmas. I really don't want to pay for the cocktail tables/furniture but I'm not sure how the cocktail hour would work without that stuff. Any help is appreciated! :)

                    This is what Fatima sent me as a set up example for Las Palmas Cocktail hour. Looks like it has the tables for the reception set up in the background. Hope it helps!

                      When you previously visited the resort, How was the fiesta? was the food good? were their lots of activities worth being there for?

                      Im contemplating doing dinner at oceana restaurant (just thier basic menu- eleane has said they will set up the tables for us) or im debating doing the mexican fiesta but i dont want to do the mexican fiesta for dinner if its cheesy and boring) after dinner we are doing a bonfire which im REALLY excited about.
