For the coverage we got and the quality of the photos we got, we would have paid alot more in the US. Here is a link to our slideshow that Anel did for us a few weeks ago. http://171212ryan.dreamsriveriacancun.adventurephotos.com.mx

 

They don't let you switch out between things in the package unless it's the same type of thing. Like you can use cocktail hour money towards dinner, and bouquet money towards centerpieces, but not photographry to food. 

 

 

also.. I love you chair bows! are those the one provided by the resort or did you bring those with you? I love the pattern on them..

Did you request songs? or did they play anything?

Hi Elsa,

 

The wedding guide says gazebo decor/ 2 flower corsages from $280.  Probably depends on the type of flowers.  Best to add your WC directly.

We got 4 of the bamboo poles which I felt was a perfect amount and covered the back side of the pool deck completely. We also got the lights under the tables to add more lighting.

Hello Savs, how much were the lights for under the tables? thanks!

hey everyone,

 

so i decided to do something a little different and get the saxaphone player for my beach ceremony.... i asked lorena about it and she sent me a video of a harp player and even though i want the sax i think it added such a nice touch! i asked her if i still needed to pay for the sound system and she let me know that NO i do not BUT i would pay 50$ for the microphone. she said the musician is the same as the sound system basically...... its going to cost me 500$ but i always wanted a saxaphone player at my wedding and my fiance agreed that its worth it..  so im not sure if that helps those of u who want the mexican trio but basically im paying for him plus 50 for a microphone which i am going to try and get her to give me for free lol

 

whew so much to do... so little time !

Question about using the microphone for the ceremony at the gazebo... did you think it was loud enough so that all the other guests as the pool can hear you? I want to make sure that im not broadcasting over the entire pool area! :)

 

I know you said you decided to use the poles with the lanterns and LOVED them. Did you decide this while you were down there, or did you have to give them a heads up before you left?

 

I am also not doing a cocktail hour and hoping that everyone will gather at the beach bar. The only thing I am worried about is that there are two other weddings going on that day, including one with 90 guests! and im hoping that they dont have the same idea :/ Did you notice any other weddings going on while yours was?

Hey Rachel! I am actually in the middle of figuring out our cocktail hour too, but we will not be going to the beach bar on the South beach, especially if that's where you and your wedding guests plan on going, I would not want to disrupt that with my group of 90 people lol. I think we'll just have ours on the North beach.

 

Did you say there are 3 weddings all on the 28th?!?! What time is the other one at? And here I thought 2 was enough!

 

Have you been receiving many emails from Gina? I have hardly heard back from here since the holidays and I'm kind of worried!

 

I hope everything is coming together perfectly for you guys! :)

Hey Rach! I am actually in the middle of trying to decide where to hold our cocktail hour but don't worry, we will not have it at the South beach bar, especially if you and your party plans on having it there because I know our weddings are essentially at the same time so it would definitely overlap. :)  We're planning on having it on the North Beach immediately following our ceremony so no worries!

 

Did you say there are 3 weddings on the 28th?!?!?! I thought there was a rule at Dreams that they only hold 2 weddings per day...

 

My co-ordinator has been so slow getting back to me since the CHristmas holidays, have you been having the same issue? I saw you were asking about DJs, we have Jorge I believe? I haven't seen anyone else post comments about him so I sure hope he works out. We are bringing down an iPod will all of the songs we want played as a back-up, in case the DJ doesn't have everything, eventhough we'll be sending a playlist beforehand.

 

I hope your plans are coming together perfectly, I can tell you're extremely organized so it's all going to turn our beautifully! :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
