      Past January brides who had your reception on the beach or pool deck - did it get windy or cold that close to the water at night?

        Hi

        Past January brides who had your reception on the beach or pool deck - did it get windy or cold that close to the water at night?

        hi my wedding is 6 Jan and we have decided to have the wine cellar as we are concerned or may be too cold and windy on the beach.

          My wedding was dec 17 and the weather was perfect!!! Well, except for the rain on our wedding day during our reception, but the temperature was perfect the entire trip, including at night. I wore short, strapless or spaghetti strap dresses every night and was completely fine. Our reception was on the pool deck and it was a great temp too!

            Thanks for the help Savs1027! I was thinking of nixxing the Cocktail Hour as well and using that credit towards dinner. And good to know that the bouquets can be cheaper than $100. 

             

            Your wedding looked gorgeous! Thanks for the visuals on what a reception on the deck would look like. I love having the infinity pool as the background. I noticed that you also opted for the dance floor.. do you think I would need that? Or is the deck good enough.

              Thank you! You definitely don't need the dancefloor on the pool deck. That was one of the reasons I picked the pool deck in the beginning - you didn't need to pay for a dance floor. We decided to add the dance floor about a month before the wedding after seeing so many pictures with it. I loved the way it looked and it added so much lighting since it was so dark outside. But you can definitely do without it if you're on a budget.

                  can you guys that have already had weddings give me some advice - the pool deck is taken for our date and they offered the pool terrace (Im not sure what it looks like) and Im hoping that it will still all look great....anything I should do instead?

                  Also for those not having a cocktail hour - what kind of credit do you receive and also where did your guests go to hang out?  was there an open bar?

                    !!!

                    Just confirmed my wedding at Dreams Riviera for August 2, 2014 Saturday!! We're booked for the gazebo at 5pm and then the deck at 8pm. I have a ton of questions so if anyone out there is reading, let me know! We actually had originally booked Now Jade for our wedding but decided to cancel it once we heard Dreams was a lot better.  I just received my budget planner and I love how organized it is, but hating the "total" cost up top :( Does anyone know if they preferred the beach location for reception? I've seen their pictures for it and it looks amazing, the deck.. not so much : I really wanted the pool terrace but it's not available on Saturdays.  Do we really need a cocktail hour? Couldn't our guests just venture to one of the nearby bars for drinks? Right now for 75 guests, it costs $1800. Did anyone order flowers from an outside vendor? $100/bridesmaid bouquets sounds ridiculous. Help!!

                    Congrats!!! Take tons of pictures and post!!!!

                      I saw some pictures of the Pool Terrace and it looks just a great as the Pool Deck (at least to me)!

                       

                      I also am looking to substitute the Cocktail Hour and I read somewhere on these forums that they were able to get a credit of ~$800, but I'm sure it's something you'll have to negotiate with your wedding coordinator. You can apply this credit towards dinner or costs of the wedding. I believe some brides just told their guests to go to a nearby bar because everywhere is all inclusive.

                       

                      Hope this helps :)
