Hello everyone!

It took me FOREVER to catch up on this forum! I haven't secured my date yet, but we are looking at 12.12.12 at Dreams! We are coming to D.R. via cruise ship and leaving the same day! Yanna said we could work it out, we just need to plan EVERY detail before hand!


Had some questions for you ladies!


If I book the Dreams of Love Package, what types of drinks are included? Yanna mentioned that it comes with the Silver open bar. Does anyone know how long the open bar lasts or what is included in the Silver open bar?


I was hoping to have my ceremony at the wedding gazebo and the reception at the SSG (Since we are coming via cruise ship, the ceremony I think will be at 12 and the reception closer to 1 - HOT! We need shade). Does anyone know if the SSG is included in the Dreams of Love Package? I don't want to rent the entire thing, I would just like our tables set in there and then order off either the Silver menu.


If anyone has photos of the SSG reception, cakes they have at dreams or anything else that may help me, can you please forward?


If anyone has the menus for the silver dinner and the SSG, or any open bar menus, can you please forward also?


Email is xxbabyangel129xx@aol.com

Thank you sooo much ladies!!!

@Clare-Marie - my plans are going great. Right now I am still pricing everything out and have not booked yet. We are actually thinking of a date during fall 2013 - it seems so far away! Have you looked into having dinner at one of the restaurants since you have a small party? I believe they will set up a special table for you that is semi-private. I also heard there is a room available in between two of the restaurants that seats up to 12 people. Someone else might have more details about this or you could ask Jenny.


@jessicalynneh - thank you! We don't have a guest count yet, but it might be around 40. I did get the buffet prices from Jenny since my last post, but thanks for your offer. Hope your planning is going well!

@Kelly Horton - Hi and welcome! I think I can help with a few of your questions. You can download the wedding guide if you haven't yet here: http://www.dreamsresorts.com/drelr/plan-your-wedding.html . It has the silver and gold menus. I do not know what types of drinks are included with the silver bar, but I am interested too if anyone else knows! As for the SSG, I posted above what Jenny answered when I asked a few days ago. The beach/pool/ballroom receptions are included, but the SSG deck or Oceana deck have a fee - $300 & $500. Jenny also sent me another PDF called "wedding presentation" which I will email to you right now. It has some additional pictures that might help you.

I got your email, thanks Marji! The pictures were helpful. So the Oceana Restaurant is $500 on top of the Dreams of Love package, thanks. I emailed Yanna today to confirm the budget that I set for the ceremony and reception since she hasn't emailed me back in awhile!


The thing that sucks is that since we are coming via cruise ship & we are not staying at the hotel, we have to pay extra for everything! But, it is fair, I understand :) We have a small party, about 20 including bride and groom. We are not going to do any music since we are having a reception back at home also. We are also not going to have a maid of honor or best man either since a lot of our friends and family can't make it.



I already paid half for my dress, so I'm waiting for that to come in. I ordered wedding favors. We are doing beach totes, sunscreen, handheld fans, tissues and starfish bottle openers :) Should be fun. Our colors are baby blue and white - so as soon as I can confirm everything, I will order baby blue sashes for the chairs and sheer baby blue tablecloths. I will also order baby blue and white lanterns for the gazebo :)


My step mom is working on my flowers. Since we cannot take real flowers on the ship, she is putting together the bouquets for me.


Alright ladies, well happy planning!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
