    Thanks for all the inputs ladies! :D

     

    Sounds like the people-watching issue is really bothersome huh! I can only imagine how upset I would be if the perfect photo has someone standing in the background in Speedo! lol! And I think the AC might be really nice...afterall we are all wearing long dresses and our partners wearing long sleeve. I might just have to get creative to create a "moonlit" feel in the ballroom :cheers:

     

    Thanks for all the insights Valleygirl! I have my heart set on the garden gazebo, I think it is very pretty :) I wasn't going to go barefoot for ceremony either way though, I am petite (5'4'' 107Lb) so I am wearing heels for ceremony for that extra boost! I am having a relatively late ceremony (4pm), cocktail at 6pm and reception at 7pm. I am really hoping for the sparkling sunset lights on the ocean, do you think I can get that background at the garden gazebo?

      Hi all. Can I just ask probably a very stupid question.....With the Ultimate package it states that we can have the gold menu for up to 20 guests. Does that mean the food for 20 guests is included in the price and we pay extra for guests over that or do we still have to pay extra for all our guests? I'm very confused lol. Thanks :)

        Yes, for Ultimate Package you and your 20 guests meal and bar services are included. So for example if you have 40 guest, you pay extra for 20 of them. The gold menu is $35pp for food and $10pp for bar services, plus taxes. So everything would add up to total of about $60 per head for the extra guests, that is including gold menu meal and bar services for up to 4 hours. 

        Dreams do have the "kids stay and eat free" promotion so keep that in mind when you do the math for extra guests! :)

        Hope this helps! :D

          Thank you very much for this. I did think this was the case but was just looking at the menu again and panicked as it says at the top of it 'the couple choose 1 of each course'. Haha. Silly me! Yes, we'll have a few children going so they'll be great extras :D Thanks again.

            The garden gazebo is lovely - you won't be disappointed :D The sun set (in May) at the far far far far right of the resort looking at the horizon with your back to the resort whilst standing on the gazebo - we would have had to go onto the pier to get any sort of sunset shot - but seen as you have that booked as well you'll get that effect somewhere :D

                  Hi all!

                   

                  This forum has been so helpful to read! A couple quick questions:

                   

                  - Any good recommendations for wedding photographers for those who have booked from outside the resort?

                   

                  - Any recommendations for a good outside makeup artist?

                   

                  Thanks!! My fiancee and I are booked for Nov 2014 and we're pumped:)

                    Hi Everyone, how exciting time is going so quickly before we know it we will all be married! Just wanted some advise on photographers... I have the dreams of love package and get some photos of the ceremony within this package but I wanted someone all day... Jennt has said its £150 to let another company other than tropical studios onto the resort - who is everyone else using as I LOVE the design of caribbean emotions photos!! :)
