I cant wait to see your pictures when you get back.

I was nervous in the beginning. But I think they are going to be going out of there way to have excellent service b/c it is new. They want to get those rooms booked. Another thing to think of a lot of people that will be working at this resort were moved from other resorts. So they will have experience. THis is what my wedding planner told me.

Anyone visited the beaches in this area. I guess I just assumed it was going to look like cancun beaches. Now I go on line the beach does not look as blue as I thought it was going to be.

Megan24 - What beach pictures were you looking at? I'd love to see them!

 

One thing I try to keep in mind is time of year - if it's Huricane season the water is rougher, stirring up stuff off the bottom, making the water more dark blue and cloudy than Aqua and clear . . .

Carina,
I agree, it is great! I don't have my invites out yet. I am hoping to put them together this weekend and have them out by Monday or Tuesday. I am making them myself (with the help of my mom), so hopefully everything goes as planned :) I didn't send out "save the date"s at all... I really didn't have time though, but everyone who is going to be invited knows what we are doing, so I think that's okay. I think we are inviting 60-70, but we already know a lot who won't be able to come to Mexico. So, I am hoping to have 30, maybe 40 at the most? How many are you having? Are you doing any planned activities for everyone who comes?

Congrats Stephanie! I am definitely a little nervous about going to a brand new resort but I am excited too since everything will be nice and new! I really have heard mostly good things about the Dreams resorts and my travel agent recommended Dreams for weddings, so I am optimistic that everything will be great! :)

Hi Laura,

 

I have to be honest, I feel kind of clueless as to how many people will actually make it, but possibly 60...? I may be way off though - we'll see. So can I ask, any thought to photographer or dj/music yet? I am wondering if I should be getting those booked already. Also, do you think you will have reception on the beach or wedding gazebo? I can't decide until I at least see a picture of the gazebo.

 

And yes Noonie, Rod on facebook has been a wealth of information. So far I am very impressed with the customer service there. I can't wait until it actually opens and we can get some real feedback!

For the pictures of the beach I googled puerto morales. Which is where the resort is located. Some pictures were great of the water some not so much. But I did not ever think of the hurricanes and when the pictures might had been taken. I would think that Dreams resort knows how to make a wonderful resort. They are not going to spend a ton of money on a resort and put it on a beach with ugly water.

    • 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?
