    Oh Lord- already having a GREAT day with Ana ... she has so far sent me back an email where she answered 2 out of 5 s and of that she answered 1 of them completely. I just keep telling myself... BREATHE!!!!!!

    Do any of you know if we can do a slideshow during our rehearsal dinner?

      I just thought of something that I wanted to let everyone know...if you send your deposit via credit card, make sure you call your credit card company and let them know you are paying for something in Mexico. I didn't know this and the first time I tried to pay my deposit, it got declined for suspicious activity. Same with when you actually go to Mexico...call all your credit cards you plan to use and let them know you'll be there. Hope that helps somebody :)

            I'm on week 2 of no response...so perhaps in 2 more weeks she'll answer my ONE question...

            On a sidenote - question for you wonderful ladies - how many weddings can Dreams have in a day? I thought I had been told two but I think there are three weddings on my day...and I was going to email Ana but I don't really want to wait 4 weeks for a response...
            Do any of you have a phone number for me to call her?

            Thanks!
            Casey

              Laura.... I read in your review that you had rose bouts and bouquets. Were these through Ana? How much did they cost you? I have been waiting for a response from her to make sure everything is still in my budget and no response!! It has been three weeks now!!!

                  I am still undecided about the DJ dilemma!!!!!!!! I cannot justify the amount of money they are upcharging with the DJ!!! It makes me feel like I am getting ripped off (oh wait... I am getting ripped off.. ha ha). I was at Sam's Club this weekend and they have the BOSE iPOD player for $259. I turned it up pretty loud in the warehouse and made John go to the next aisle to make sure it was clear and loud... HOLY CRAP WAS IT LOUD!!! It made me think that I can just use this for the reception..... I don't know if a DJ is necessary.... any thoughts Why are some of you going with a DJ or not using one?

                    Am I the only one getting nervous about all the reviews on tripadvisor about hotel being overly crowded with children? I will be so embarassed if my guests dont have seats on the beach or pool due to over populated resort

                      This was one of my biggest fears. I was completely stressed about it. When we got married there in February - it was the first time they were booked to capacity. When I found that out, I had a mild heart attack. And I tell you, we really did not have any trouble with chairs and the kids were not out of control. It will be fine. It is a beautiful resort and your guests will love it.
