and to the past May brides and future may brides....Did you/are you planning putting out pashminas at your reception?  I love the idea but im not sure if they'll be necessary in May.  i know it's always cooler at night and i will be having my reception at the pool deck which is right off the beach but im not sure how chilly it gets. 

 

Thanks!

 

For fire dancers we went thru the resort, USD 800 for 4 dancers for 20 min. They were fine, but because we were running a bit late, we had planned to have them during dessert and we were still dancing when we were told to go sit down to watch. I was kinda bummed that they were interfering with our dancing at that time! ha ha! Just as a note, depending on which company you would like, for that amount you could get 4 to 6 dancers.

 

We had DJ Doremixx locked down a fair bit in advance - he was fantastic! We had him for 5 hours. As he does work at other resorts, I would say book anything and everything you can with as much notice as possible.

 

We had pashmina's for our mid November wedding and the ladies just loved them! Good luck!

I leave on Monday for our wedding! We hired fire dancers through Daniel Santos Servin. We are getting 3 FIRE DANCERS AND 1 DRUMMER for  20 mins for 350.00 $ +38.50 $ (11% tax)=$388.50. They coordinated through Veronica at the hotel, and I will let you know how they perform. Here is a video they sent me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCVbZC0ZVig They gave us the best price and were very responsive.

Hello:

 

Thank you for the response.  Your room 1537, did it have a plunge pool?  When did you start emailing your coordinator about all the wedding details?  I asked my TA but she hasn't given me the name of my wedding coordinator at Dreams yet b/c she said they are going through some changes. 

 

Thank you:)

I got the Pashmina's downtown Toronto in Chinatown. I think I ended up being able to talk the guy into giving them to us for $3.50 each and this was the cheapest I was able to find. 

 

We stayed in room 1537. It was a nice room and had a good view of the ocean. We did not spend much time in the room so I am glad that we didn't upgrade but it might be nice to do if you plan on getting ready in your room. I got ready in one of my bridesmaids rooms because it was closer to the gazebo ... All of the rooms are beautiful and I don't think you will be disappointed at all!

Hi! My wedding is may 10, 2011! The humidity starts to pick up in may and the weather is hot and sticky. I do love the pashmina idea but unfortunately for us may brides its a bit to warm...even at night :( I got beach towels for my guests to put in their OOT bag. I know the hotel provides them..but I thought it'll be something they will use years after their trip that will remind them of Mexico!

 I am getting married at the resort Nov 19, 2011. We just booked our room and airfare... we went with the honeymoon suite, but from what I have now read, we should have upgraded to the Master Suite? Does anyone have pics or advice on the two different room types?

Thanks

We actually booked the honeymoon suite, but were given the Preferred Master Suite as an automatic upgrade with the 3G promotion that Dreams is running right now. If you are working with a travel agent, they should be able to arrange this for you. I know there was a minimum of rooms you had to book to qualify for the upgrade, and we have 55 people coming to give you an idea.

The difference between the Honeymoon Suite and garden room is it has 1 King bed, larger, Oceanfront and has a Jacuzzi outside.
The Master Suite has  a separate bedroom, living and dining area, small kitchenette, jacuzzi outside, and is oceanfront.It is much bigger at 1267 sq ft.

 

Hope that helps! Can't believe we leave on Monday!!

    • 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?
