Hello LADIES!!! :) :)

Ok so I have not heard from Ana, has she finalized wedding details with any of you? Who is going to be the fist one getting married there? I am open to any suggestions or ideas you all my have on a group event. A welcome celebration. Also are any of you doing welcome bags? If so any good ideas on what to put in them? I went to a wedding that personalized coffee mugs for us to carry our drink around the resort and it would not melt but I did not want to copy. Another idea we had was visors but they could look cheezy... I would absolutely love to hear of any ideas... Also I was thinking of having my dinner by a pool. Has Ana confirmed the possible locations to anyone?

Regards,

Ashley

You can of course opt to not have a package. This is the document that I received from Claudia at the Dreams Cancun Resort but the options I would think would be the same for Dreams RC. Keep in mind that these are the prices for 2008-2009.

Also attached is a document that I received from the Dreams Tulum location with the flower choice options and a few other things.

Hope this helps some of you with your choices...

Hello,

Is there anyway you can send me these attachments via email. I guess I cannot see them yet...sad.gif

Thank you in advance,

Laura, just saw your post now. Sure, it wouldn't hurt to find out what she has to say. If you feel like asking, I am totally down. There is a chance we may fly down a family member who is a photographer, but I would love to know our options and what is most cost effective. Thanks!

Does anyone know what date I should put as the date I need the RSVP card back? I am not sure if the hotel needs a final count and by what day. Going to print very soon on invitations. Also, supposedly I will get the discounted room rate if people book by late November, but don't feel it is fair to put that date on the response card since they are not going out until mid to late October. Ughh - so confused.

Hi Ashley,
I will email them to you (although I think we can be banned for doing this...? Not 100% clear on that rule...). Also, for anyone else looking for the pricing, you can go to the Dreams Resorts website and look up the new resort. Click on the "Weddings & Honeymoon's" tab and if you scroll down a little all the info will be there too.

Hope this helps everyone!

There are a couple of good threads about the OOT bags, some really good suggestions and feedback about what the guests liked and used and what they didn't. I love the mug idea and would copy it even if someone else I know did/does it! The cups you get at the resorts are small and if you can give your guests something fun like that I think it's a great idea! We are thinking of buying mini bottles of tequila (while in Mexico) for each guest (children excluded of course) and the mugs for sure. Plus there is a Walmart in Playa that will have lots of good stuff that you can put into a welcome bag. Maybe cheaper than trying to bring it all with you...

MEGAN - love the bunny! I want one too!
