    I haven't received my wedding photos yet, but Juan Navarro our wedding photographer just posted some on his blog if you want to get some ideas.  You can see the centrepieces and the flowers venue etc.............The resort did everything I didn't bring anything down except for the chair sashes.  The resort did my hair and the bridesmaids hair.  I did my own makeup.  When I actually get all the photos I will show more.

      You looked so pretty and your hair was amazing.  Did you bring a picture of how you wanted it or how did you tell them?  I love that look.  Where did you get the flowers for your bridesmaids hair?

        Unfortunately it did rain on our wedding day just as i was about to start walking down the aisle at 5.30!! The day had been beautiful sunshine up until then but luckily they postponed the ceremony for 30 minutes and we were able to carry on getting married on the beach and having the cocktail hour on the beach. We made the decision to have the reception in the ballroom as it was still very stormy and rained but this was decorated beautifully and it was nice to be out of the wind to eat. I was very disappointed about this but to be honest it was all done extremely well and was still fantastic! 

        I will write a review when i get back, we are still on honeymoon at the moment but did pick up our photos from Anel and they are fantastic!!!

        Don't stress girls they know exactly what they are doing and to be honest you can plan most of it a week before (apart from the bits you are bringing from home)but the flowers etc... you can all do that when you arrive and if you want to change anything they are so accommodating its great! 

         

        Congratulations Sarah-Jane!

         

        Cant wait to read your review :)

              Lindsey,

               

              How long did your hair and make-up take to do?

                  Hi Princess Bride,

                   

                  Beautiful pictures!  I loved your table centerpieces!! Did you get them through the resort? How much if you don't mind me asking?

                   

                  Thanks!

                    I did have my hair done at the spa........................If I had 1 complaint about the whole wedding at Dreams that would be it.  Nothing that couldn't be fixed though but if I could do it again I would do it differently.  

                    1) The spa had 3 weddings that day and they were totally behind schedule.  I was supposed to get may hair done at 2:00 they did not start me until 3:15 my ceremony was at 5:00. I did not get out of there until 4:00 and the photographer was waiting at my door..............I had no makeup on yet etc........needless to say we ran out of time for a lot of pre wedding photos I would like to have had.

                    2) They used way too much hairspray...........I was wanting my hair to be a little softer and it was so stiff and stringy because of all the spray.

                     

                    Things again that could be fixed, book early appointments and have a hair trial.

                    They will do a great job if you tell them exactly what it is.  I think they do all braids, everyone was having them done.

                      Hello Aimeelaco28!!

                      I didn't see your pictures here online, can't find them?

                      I did do the centrepieces through the resort.  I got the fantasy island package for and had them do it on the beach deck.  I got this package as well as the ultimate package.  Fantasy Island was an extra $3000 it included the chairs and centrepieces lighting and other decorations.
