      I cant wait to see your pictures when you get back.

      I was nervous in the beginning. But I think they are going to be going out of there way to have excellent service b/c it is new. They want to get those rooms booked. Another thing to think of a lot of people that will be working at this resort were moved from other resorts. So they will have experience. THis is what my wedding planner told me.

        Anyone visited the beaches in this area. I guess I just assumed it was going to look like cancun beaches. Now I go on line the beach does not look as blue as I thought it was going to be.

            Megan24 - What beach pictures were you looking at? I'd love to see them!

            One thing I try to keep in mind is time of year - if it's Huricane season the water is rougher, stirring up stuff off the bottom, making the water more dark blue and cloudy than Aqua and clear . . .

              It's great to have someone on here that will be going through everything at the same time. So tell me, do you have invites out yet? I sent out an email "save the date" 2 weeks ago, which links to our website which has info on how to book. I would like to get the formal invites out asap. HOw many people are you expecting?
              Carina,
              I agree, it is great! I don't have my invites out yet. I am hoping to put them together this weekend and have them out by Monday or Tuesday. I am making them myself (with the help of my mom), so hopefully everything goes as planned :) I didn't send out "save the date"s at all... I really didn't have time though, but everyone who is going to be invited knows what we are doing, so I think that's okay. I think we are inviting 60-70, but we already know a lot who won't be able to come to Mexico. So, I am hoping to have 30, maybe 40 at the most? How many are you having? Are you doing any planned activities for everyone who comes?

                Congrats Stephanie! I am definitely a little nervous about going to a brand new resort but I am excited too since everything will be nice and new! I really have heard mostly good things about the Dreams resorts and my travel agent recommended Dreams for weddings, so I am optimistic that everything will be great! :)

                  for anyone that doesnt already know, the facebook group for the Dreams hotel is great, there are lots of brides & grooms on there & they post new pics every tuesday. I have to say i was excited & less nervous to see the pictures, the resort already looks great:) and each person getting married there starting in november is going to post pics & reviews so i cant wait for that!!

                    Hi Laura,

                    I have to be honest, I feel kind of clueless as to how many people will actually make it, but possibly 60...? I may be way off though - we'll see. So can I ask, any thought to photographer or dj/music yet? I am wondering if I should be getting those booked already. Also, do you think you will have reception on the beach or wedding gazebo? I can't decide until I at least see a picture of the gazebo.

                    And yes Noonie, Rod on facebook has been a wealth of information. So far I am very impressed with the customer service there. I can't wait until it actually opens and we can get some real feedback!

                      For the pictures of the beach I googled puerto morales. Which is where the resort is located. Some pictures were great of the water some not so much. But I did not ever think of the hurricanes and when the pictures might had been taken. I would think that Dreams resort knows how to make a wonderful resort. They are not going to spend a ton of money on a resort and put it on a beach with ugly water.
