I have been thinking that there are going to be more people there than I had originally anticipated, so I was considering what some people had written about cashing in the cocktail hour for more people at dinner.  As I was telling my step-mom, she suggested we cash in the DINNER for more people/food/time/drinks at cocktail hour, and make that into my reception.  I was thinking I'd rent the dance floor then too.  Bottom line is, with the wedding being at 4:00, everyone can just go to dinner at 7:30 or 8:00.  It bugs me to think of paying for extra people to eat at an all inclusive resort.  It's not the actual dollar amount--it's the principle!

 

Has anyone thought about doing that?  Any advice--pros or cons that anyone can think of?  I am just starting this so I will take all the opinions out there!!!

 

Thanks, Katie

I agree! After reading some reviews, I think I'm going to ditch the cocktail hour and use the extra cash for other items..

I sent my down payment 12 days ago and Gina replied right away.  She said she would let me know when she was going to charge my card - She has still not charged the card.  I know my date is secure but my family is going to start booking their flights soon.

 

Do they send you a formal contract or form with everything written out?

How does this all work?  

 

I am getting nervous and my wedding is March 18th 2012.

 

HELP! Thanks

We leave tomorrow!!!!  I haven't heard from Gina in 2 weeks which I think is odd, although most things are sorted out. They included my ceremony music, the light up dance in the DJ price.

 

They gave us our cocktaill credit which is more than the few extra dinners we need. I found lots of people said they were going to come but when push came to shove and it was time to pay numerous people didn't pay. I don't mind paying the extra since you have your own staff and a different meal. We figured people are spending lots of money and taking vacation time to come to our wedding as well. Just our thoughts...

 

We are gone for two weeks but I'll write a review when I come back as a Mrs :)

it took me a few weeks to get a "confirmation" (which was just an email with a .jpg of the receipt for the deposit). I would try emailing the wedding department again (not Gina but the dercwedding email address). It sounds like Gina hasn't been answering emails and im wondering if shes no longer with dreams.... anyone know?

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
