DREAMS PUERTO VALLARTA "thread"
Posted 24 September 2009 - 10:25 AM
Merve thank you SO MUCH!! For the awesome recon mission information! I am super jealous u both got to go on a recon. We are just going on blind faith but the information from all the girls on here and you have settled any nerves I may have. We are getting married on Oceana Beach too, so I am glad to hear it is awesome and we are having our reception on Las Palmas. Is Oceana very private, like Karen said no one wants the 300lb man in the speedo in the background of all the wedding photos ?
Raul thanks for the feedback. I knew choosing to not have the photographer that Dreams provides will not lower my price. I am flying in my photog so I just wanted to make sure he will not be bothered by the other photog. But I still plan on using the Dreams videographer.

I am getting married at Dream April 17,2010!!! I have a few questions/worries! I havent been there so need help if possible!
a) I booked the Gazbo...is the Oceana Beach Front nicer or better?
Rebecca hasnt anwsered the past 2emails I sent usually she is good with this wonder what is going on??
c) Also I booked to have my reception in the ballroom scared to being dripping hot from being outside....do yall think I should change it? Has anyone seen the ballroom? I am kinda thinking the pool area may be a better choice! HELP!
d) Does anyone have any good reccomendations on the food choices for the plated ceremony menu?

Bethany, we have tons of info on this thread so make sure you check out some past posts and you will get a great idea of the resort and what areas are the best for you. But in the mean time here is my take:
1. Between the Gazebo and the beach from my understanding they are both really nice, it is just whether you want to get married on the beach or not. Alot of people opt for the gazebo since they will be wearing heels, which would making walking on the beach hard.
2. Rebeca is really busy and has to deal with multiple weddings and multiple brides and emails a day. So don't stress she will get back to you, but sometimes it takes a couple of days. There is only one of her and tons of us. If you have any questions that could be answered by past brides or brides who are planning feel free to ask us here on the forum. The girls on here are a wealth of knowledge and experience.
3. According to WeatherUnderground the average temp for your wedding on April 17 is around 80, so I don't think you need to have an inside reception, especially if it is at night when the avg low is 68. I am getting married a month after you and having my reception outside, but it really comes down to personal preference.
4. Again search the dinner option here on this thread. Lauren has a great review of her wedding including the meals. Merve just posted a great review from his recon trip to the resort. With just some more research you should have a better idea of what you want to do.

HAVE UR RECEPTION OUTSIDE TRUST ME!! The ballroom is at the back of the resort, so kinda away from the beautiful Beach. We had our reception at Las Palmas Terrace, by the Gazebo near the pool. Again, best choice!! You have the sun setting behind some trees, so it's not hot at all around dinner time. Then in the evening, it's great for dancing...and Do what I did...JUMP IN THE POOL!(and the ocean) And Its MEXICO, who wants to be inside in MEXICO?
also, everyone in the old tower can look down on ur wedding and wish they were there!! Haha. When we jumped in the pool, it was like paparazzi on the balconies of the rooms, everyopne was flashin' pics and shouting yeah to us! it was AWSOME!!
The nxt day everyone at the resort is like "Did u see that wedding last night? They JUMPED IN THE POOL". I said...Yeah that was me actually!! I loved it!!
Well there is my 2 cents. I do recommend those locations though. If u get married by the resturants, everyone can watch. The Gazebo, people only get a glimpse and wish they could see more! Heehee.. ;0

Sarah - your pictures are AMAZING!
Racer - regarding the airport taxi - if you don't mind taking the pedestrian bridge across the street from the airport, you can catch a "regular" taxi on the other side of the street and it's cheaper.
I had some of Karen's concerns about onlookers on the beach, but FI really wanted to do it on the beach, and we thought we were going to have too many to do it on the gazebo (turns out we could probably squeeze in there since the economy really hurt our guest list!). Everyone says you don't even notice people, and I plan on letting our photographer know I don't want randoms in my background. I was actually going to make a portable screen to bring to put behind us, but FI said I'm crazy. We're doing our cocktail hour on the gazebo and the reception on the Terrace.
