    Now I can't decide if I should get married on the beach or not anymore, it does not look private at all.

      Thanks for posting! I wonder why they set up so many chairs when there weren't people to be in them? Hmm...and not a fan of the non-private beach either.

      I found this random set of pictures on the web and thought I would post since they were lots of them and they may come in handy.

       

      Great pictures of the main pool and hotel grounds.  Hope it helps.

        Just a thought but do you need a dance floor if you're having the reception by the pool? The ground is already hardened cement which is great for dancing unless of course you plan on doing the moon walk and need a wooden dance floor for that.

        That is exciting that we are both having our wedding the same weekend! I think it will be nice for you to have a smaller wedding group. I am really stressing the amount of people and trying to coordinate it all!! I definitely want to do something private for my group but was trying to do several appetizers and drinks since everybody will be eating all day considering it is an all inclusive. I want to focus the reception on the dancing and drinks lol...not really the food.  I may change my mind. I just have been to many wedding where there is a nice sit down dinner and it doesn't even get eaten because everyone is busy dancing. Also with 80+ guests it gets REALLY expensive to pay for dinner for each! I am really torn about photography!! I am more into the artistic type photos like www.katyanovablog.com or http://michaelsteingard.com/#home/rather than the traditional type photographers. But those are more $$.

         

        **My visit to Dreams both helped and stressed me out more. I was staying at a different resort, Secrets Sanctuary, cap cana, (which is truly an amazing place for a honeymoon) and I only had a short time to visit Dreams and get my questions answered. The resort is very social and we choose it for this reason. It is also family friendly.for guests that have children. I was originally thinking of having the ceremony at the gazebo, which is pretty in and of itself, but it is far from the beach and really doesn't have a very good view. It is also is small and it would be difficult to accomodate a larger wedding. So I am rethinking it and having it on the beach!! Then I want my reception by the pool. I just hope there is room for the # of guests and a dance floor!

         

        I am stressing air fare!! anyone having luck with this!!?? or suggestions? okay I am going on and on...if you have questions ask! :)

          Does anyone have pictures of the linens, flowers and cakes offered?

          If you've used an outside florist or rental store for linens do you mind providing me that info? Thanks!

            Hello ladies,

             

            Are most of you getting your makeup & hair done at the salon/spa? Or are most of you doing your own makeup/having someone else apply your makeup? I'm debating if I should trust the girls at the salon to do my makeup or not?? Hair I'm not so worried about since my style will be simple.

              Definitely my hair...but not sure about my makeup either.  I am normally go pretty neutral shades and am worried about them putting it on way too much/dark.  But thinking about doing a trial if it is reasonable and then I could decide.  So probably will make both appointments just to be safe!

               

              Mel...how did you contact the Jellyfish?  I sent an email through their website and still have not heard back.  I am considering have my reception there.

               

              Thanks!

              Carrie

                  For those of you who have already gotten legally married at Dreams Palm Beach by the judge, did you write your own ceremony script? Do they have a "generic" one that they use at the resort? I have started on mine, but I wasn't sure what they usually do there. Anyone have any idea??

                    My Wedding July 4 2011
                    Hello ladies i wanted to give u guys a quick review because i know you ladies helped me alot=)
                    Lets start with the hotel this hotel is excellent the service is great the property is very well maintained and the food is sooooo good. i loved this hotel and i would def go back.
                    as far as the wedding department! ever since melani has been switched out i see things getting worse i wasn't getting emails back from the wc, if i sent emails i would get one question answered out of 5, which was very upsetting. Once i saw this happening i put my self very organized i made spread sheet with questions i made a list of music for the dj i did a time line to the minute of more or less how i wanted my day to go. the only thing i regret was not making a list of what i expected from my wedding cordinator... and the reason i did this was because since they deal with so many weddings i would think that they would know or be fully trained...
                    when i got to the resort i was told that my meeting with Leticia was the next day which was the 2nd. when i met with her she was a little disorganized she was asking me questions about things that was already discussed and right in front of her... i expected this since i went through 6 cordinators. My first impression was that she was def not a people person. She had asked me if i got champagne and strawberrys and till this day i didnt get it. (y bring it up?) i then gave her a suite case with all the decor and with my cake accesories which she messed it up. The cake did not come out like the picture i sent her which i am telling you guys must of been the simplest cake.
                    The Day Of the Wedding
                    I never heard fron her i went to go get my makeup and hair done and had to call my to be husband to go look for her to see if she can please get us a room so the bridal party could get ready i mean a simple phone call in the am to see what my day was going to look like  would of been nice. she is the wedding cordinator! anyway when i got to my room around 2 i still didnt hear from her i called the front desk to get her, she finally called me back around 230 i asked her if she had seen my photographger she had no idea if he was there or not...ugh...(which he was because he is the best in the dr ;)) church.jpgchurch2.jpgmytable.jpgtable!.jpgmytable1.jpgDSC07124 (2).JPGDSC07153 (2).JPG
                    Hope this helps
