      My wedding date/time is booked, but other then that I haven't really done much with the wedding planners at Dreams thus far, I really need to start figuring out all the details. Would anyone be willing to send me some of their wedding docs such as the menus, centerpieces, flowers, cakes etc  I'd like to do a little background research before I call them up and talk.

       

      My email is angelinavest@gmail.com -- whatever you can send is GREATLY appreciated.

       

      Looking forward to spending the next 5-6 months with you all!!

         I plan on sending them a formal invitation about 1 month in advance along with the "travel brocure" idea that I found on here.

         

        • You should definatly decide on your locations ASAP!, chances are there is another couple getting married on the same day and if your lucky they haven't chosen their locations yet.
        • For ceremony there is the beach set up or the gazebo
        • For cocktail hour there is the jacuzzi, pool deck, pool terrace, and I think somewhere else (not 100% on this one)
        • For reception you have the choice of beach, pool deck, pool terrace, and ballroom
        • Or for reception and cocktail hour you can make a reservation at a restaurant for a fee of course.
        • As soon as you figure out your ceremony times the timeline goes as follows
        • Ceremony 4:00-5:00 Cocktail hour 5:00-6:00 Reception 6:00-9:00 ( so that is 1 hour ceremony, 1 hour cocktail, and 3 hour reception)

        I didn't realize they had a buffet option until SAVS mentioned that - I think we will end up doing that for dinner then mixing and matching the gold/silver for the appetizers.  I honestly probably won't even bother with centerpieces, (1) I don't want to have to pack/ship them (2) Mexico is beautiful as it is! (3) I'm trying to cut costs in every way possible!.  We're having a big reception back home so that's where we are doing the more formal settings.  I'm glad you told me about the substitution of the Mexican trio, if that's the case we will definitely go with the Ultimate package!

         

        How do you plan on notifying your guests of the timeline? That's where my biggest hang-up is.  I don't have a clue when our cocktail hour, ceremony or reception is.  Also don't know where everything will take place.  I just emailed Yamina to ask her about all of that, so we will see.  I would love to have everything planned out ahead of time so I can tell my guests where they need to be and when.  Beyond that we're all doing our own thing...I feel so unorganized!

          Hey girls!! So I have been going back and forth about centerpieces. We only have about 25-30 people coming so I won't need a lot of tables. The prices are a little expensive for the centerpieces I thought--ANy ideas on how I could bring something inexpensive and still nice??

                Yes! We would love to see your spreadsheet! I've tried to make spread sheets but I feel like I'm missing things or I don't have full prices. Email: KipandKate@gmail.com And hopefully we can meet at the resort for a mimosa or something! Do you have all you plans, package, location for ceremony,etc picked out and booked? We have our locations for everything picked and that's about it.

                Hey Rollerbride!

                 

                I had an excess of time when I was weighing the decision on which package to choose so I put together an excel spreadsheet with all the details for each.. If you want me to send it to you I can, you would just have to tweak some of the numbers to reflect your 40 people, because mine is only for 30.

                 

                Post your e-mail address if you want it.

                 

                PS- You're getting married two days before me!
