      Bailey I keep forgetting how close your wedding is too!!!!!  You're almost there :-)


      We leave in 3 days and it feels so surreal!  We're in good shape though... I'm just so ready to get there and unpack all this wedding stuff, make sure it all made it, and then RELAXXXX!!! :-)

        So I guess the Mexican Fiesta night is on Friday nights and it is held on the main beach. Has anyone had their wedding on a Friday and did the fiesta interupt the wedding at all? We are having ceremony at 4 and cocktail hour/reception on the Las Palmas Terrace on a Friday.

          Hmm that's a bummer... our wedding is a week from today (Friday) on the Las Palmas Terrace.  I hope it doesn't interupt and that's too bad we are missing the Mexican Fiesta!!!  Is it always Friday nights?  How did you find that out?

            I wrote on the Dreams FB page an Juan said this:


            Yes the mexican party is every Friday, but next week will be on Sunday 20 of Nov. because is the celebration of the Mexican revolution. if your wedding is in las palmas, don't worry, the music of the Mexican Fiesta never over power the wedding at las palmas.


            So we should all be fine :-)

              Yes the fiesta is every Friday my wedding is Friday nov 27th and I'm glad to hear the fiesta will be on Sunday the 20th as that's the day we all arrive! The fiesta shouldn't interior weddings or I'm sure it would be brought up in some reviews and I have never heard anything- I'm sure you lady's will be fine- for my wedding we aren't doing all the traditional things partly to save on money and partly to have it feel a nit more casual- we are doing our ceremony at 3 then dinner at ocean restaurant where we will do cake cutting and champagne toast with speaches then at 8 we will head to ocean side of the beach for a bonfire where I am having s'more packages set up for everyone that will say s'more love at the bonfire we will have our Bose speakers and iPod so we can all relax and dance by the fire ( we are hoping to do a dance area by buying stuff down there to make it look the part hahaha) I am soooooo glad to hear there will be a fiesta on Sunday the 20th our 3 year old daughter will love that I'm sure!

                Our wedding was on a Friday, but the Mexican Fiesta did not interfere... I think we probably interfered with it... we were loud and never heard the fiesta at all

                  b gardner,

                  We are from Alberta and getting married February 13, 2011!! We also have 40+ guests attending, the ceremony is on Oceana Beach as for the reception I have asked told wedding coordinator (Fatima) that "We are wanting to meet at a restaurant shortly after the wedding and asked if they required notification that my group will be coming?" She responded: " Yes, I will let you know the Monday before your wedding the restaurants that will be open so you can have
                  a set menu." I am in the process of confirming with her that there will not be a charge for this "set menu" ... From your understaning will it be no charge to gather at a resturant after the wedding??? I feel that since everyone is paying all inclusive we should not have to pay to have supper together the evening of our wedding! I am awaiting her response. Just don't want any surprise charges by doing the reception this way. Like your idea of offering to tip the resturant. I feel that people eating at the resturant will not mind moving to accomodate us, lets hope. We are also having the paradise package and bringing an ipod with songs for the reception using their Sound system with microphone and Ipod dock for a charge of $100 per hour. I am thinking of bringing my own gauze to decorate and add a little  the palm arch. We are also having a bon fire and really like your idea of bringing our own speakers, cant see why that wouldn't work! I am sure your plan will turn out to be wonderful!!!  

                  Good Luck,

                    Such a relief to hear it doesn't interupt the wedding. Good luck and congrats SarahBen2011!

                      Does anyone have any pictures of las palmas terrace? Like an overall layout picture so I can get a better idea of how things will look?? That has become my latest obsession.


                      Also if anyone had their cocktail hour there too and can let me know how that worked for them??


                      Thank you!
