    colleen...I only saw it in the resorts wedding brochure. I think you can see it on their site. I never saw a bride on here that has had them.

      I think the deck is around the pool?

        MaR- Your pics are beautiful. We were at Dreams July 2nd for a site inspection. Your pics really made the idea of a wedding on the pool deck come to life. You look like you had such a great time! Congrats!! I was wondering what time you had your ceremony and reception? I loved how you had a perfect mix of daylight photos and night time photos.

        Also...to any brides with more than 20 guests: Our guest list is growing and I am really worried about how high the bill is going to be if almost all of our 75 guests happen to decide to come. Is there a rate for groups larger than 50 or anything? Or is it the cost of the wedding plus roughly $100 per person after 20 guests Eeeek!
        C+J=LOVE

            Thank you!!! I got the sashes, table runners and napkins online from tableoverlays.com, I ordered for 50 people and i paid $125. Unfortunately I don't have them anymore I just kept the napkins, I gave the rest of the things to Ana including the fabric for the arch, so other brides can use them for free. Sorry!

                  Can I ask you guys something? Dreams Riviera was my first choice for my wedding but after looking at the prices for the rooms, I thought it would be unrealistic to ask people to stay for that price. We are having close to 100 people and I just thought the prices were insane. Do they give REALLY good group discounts or something? I feel like everyone is having their wedding there and I was just wondering about that...

                  PM me if you can about this. I am REALLY curious.

                    I havent priced it out yet but i was wondering if we're allowed to use an outside florist for our bouquets and centerpieces?

                      @The Future Wagners-I am not sre what you consider ridiculous but if you are looking at the prices on the Dreams website, that is why. Their website is much higher. You can check prices at resortvacationstogo.com or applevacations.com or another tour operator to get a better idea. If you are getting married next year, take into consideration that the promotions for next year are not out yet so the prices are still higher than they will be. I would suggest looking at prices for your date (if it is next year) and then looking at this year's prices. The final price should be somewhere in the middle. Also keep in mind that most travel agents will allow you to price adjust up until departure. Hope this helps.
