    We are getting married on Nov 4th, 2013 and have opted for the Dreams of Love package. Does anyone know if I can not do the cocktail hour and get credit back for it to use for a different service? We are just having a small (immediate family only) wedding, so the cocktail hours seems to be a waste for 12 people. I know I have read that other have been allowed to but the wedding planner that we are now working (third one)  with has told me this is not an option.  

     

    Also for those who have had everything on the beach (ceremony and reception), what have you found works best for lighting? 

     

    Thanks in advance. 

    I am getting married November the 4th as well!!!! Maybe I will see you there :))

      Hey guys! I just sent our deposit for our wedding April 24,2014. We originally were thinking moon palace but our TA talked us into dreams riviera Cancun. Any advice or recommendations would be awesome! Jill

        Has anyone bought starfish to bring down? If so, where did you buy them? 

        Our wedding isn't until May, but I found Starfish (5 pack for 2.99) at The Christmas Tree Shop! :)

              We had Anel as did many people on this thread and I highly recommend her! She was so awesome to work with and her pictures are just to die for! People still talk about our pictures and say that we would have paid ALOT of money to get what she did here in Houston. 

               

              Here is a link to my facebook album with all the pics from her.

                We used Dreams for what was included in the Ultimate Package and StoryMix Media for additional.  I posted a link to my videos a few weeks back. Let me know if you didn't see them and I'll post again :)

                  You can only trade out for the same type of item. Like flowers for flowers and food for food. So, you could only get a credit for the cocktail hour if you put it towards dinner.

                    don't ship anything!! I've heard that it is not recommend due to customs and it's not guaranteed to get there. We took everything with us down in suitcases. And we had ALOT of stuff!

                      awesome thanks!! What area did you have for cocktails and reception? We chose the Jacuzzi area foe cocktails and are struggling with reception location. Am pretty confused as to why there is a $1000 fee for the oceans restaurant location and what does that include.....do we still need to get a dance floor/DJ or should we just go to the resort club?
