      Honestly....I wouldn't put it toward the wedding. There may be some things you guys wanna do while in Mexico as husband and wife, spend it on that. Or maybe do some shopping.  Unless they said it has to be for the wedding. I wouldn't spend it on that day directly.

      Sorry for venting.

       

      What would you use a spare $2000 for at Dreams?

          Id put it towards something for my guests... maybe entertainment at the reception or a catamaran cruise or excursion!!! I think its such a nice touch to treat all of your guests to something a little extra as just another thank you for spending the time/money to travel to your wedding :) but then that's just me. and id definitely put it towards the wedding since it was gifted with the intention it would be used for the wedding.

              Has anyone booked the fire dancers?

              My parents decided to surprise us and pay for entertainment at the wedding however they feel $800 is a little pricey for only half an hour. Does anyone have pictures or videos they can send me? aimeelaco@hotmail.com ....Anyone who has already gotten married and had them Id love to hear from you and your review. Is it really worth the money?

                Hi Aimeelaco28,

                Luckily for you we just got married 8.26.11 and we had the firedancers... We were originally quoted the same price for the 30 mins show. Here is what you do - ask for the 15 minute show which will cost around 480ish - this 15 min show will last much longer as it did for us. I think it lasted longer because that's how the performers time out their routine. It was very much worth the price, it was the grand finally to our wedding.

                 

                here is a snippet from my review I haven't posted yet because we are waiting on the photos to come in

                 

                "We had them do their performance over the water bridge which crossed over the shallow kiddie pool. They were only supposed to do a 15 minute show but they went on much longer (felt like 30 mins). There were 4 of them - 3 men and one woman and it was truly a spectacle as the fire reflected off the water while we all watched from the Seaside Grill. Everyone was thoroughly impressed and it offered our guests a big bang for their last night at the resort. The music they danced to was so loud and the spectacle was so neat we started getting attention from the looky-loo's as they sat around the pool watching the show."

                 

                And now here is the bonus! Nobody has brought this video to forum until now!

                Video of the firedancers!!!! on our wedding night - watch the whole thing - my brother cut it up in snippets

                 

                 

                The video is low grade and it looked much better in real life.. and should look insane once the photos come back.

                 

                Hope that helps!

                Rick (Former Groom)
