    We are planning our ceremony at the gazebo & recept at the pool deck. You mention the cocktail hour at the jacuzzi? How was that ?
    Did you have a buffet for the supper? (sorry so many questions)
    Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Thanks!, i brought chair bows and table overlays and orange napkins, i purchased them at weddinglinensdirect.com they are really cheap and looked amazing. I loved the jacuzzi for cocktail hour. The gazebo isnt really in a good location in my opinion, its rite next to the main walk way to get down to the beach....people were respectful that a wedding was taking place, but just wanted to let you know. no we couldnt do a buffet we didnt have enough people we had a plated dinner. If you have any other questions let me know. If you go on the dreams web page you can see a live web cam of the pool area and gazebo, it will give you an idea of the location and whats around it.

Don't stress about anything, seriously. When you have your meeting with your coordinator, ours was Gina, she will go over everything and change whatever she needs to make things perfect! We also met with Linda the officiant to go over what all we wanted her to say and she gave us choices of different openings, vows, and closings. So request to meet with your officiant, I also recommend Linda because she spoke great English and you could understand her!

        Check in was a breeze, Ryan's brother had a small issue but we sorted that out quickly. The rooms are amazing! our view of the ocean was awesome, i definitely recommend getting the preferred rooms, way better views, and the preferred bar makes better drinks and has better liquor!!! lol 

        Ladies do the trash the dress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those pics are the best by far!!! I actually came up with the idea of doing it at sunrise, cuz the sun rises over the ocean! We had to get up super early but my pictures are Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted to keep all of them. We did the 1,499 package so we got to choose 236 combined with our 36 from the Love package! i had a lace dress i was a lil worried about it getting ruined, but its in perfect condition, i just wore it in the shower and got all the sand off. The shower head detach so that was a huge help. Seriously if you take away one thing from this post please do the trash the dress!!!!!!! save save save if you have to lol ill answer any questions you have!


        Lets see....i requested to have a quick rehearsal the day before the wedding it was about 20 minutes if that. We met Gina in her office and walked to the ceremony site at North beach. Definitely ask for a rehearsal especially if you have a bridal party so everyone knows what they are doing!!!! Also a must if your having ur ceremony on the beach choose NORTH BEACH! its more private and a way better location! south beach is literally next to the volleyball court, the the beach bar and everyone hangs out over there, especially the loud and obnoxious people, ill get into them later!!! Seriously tho brides if you know you have a rowdy group that's fine and all, but please try to control them during other peoples weddings!!! its just rude!! i saw at least 4 different groups of people that were clearly wedding groups being ridiculous when other people were getting married i wanted to ask when there weddings were so i could be loud and act like an ass whole, when they were getting married. Sorry for going off there lol most people are really respectful, i just expected more from other brides! So please ladies try and ask your groups to be respectful when others are having there weddings! We did our reception at the pool deck, i love it the food was awesome and it was really private! One thing i was so confused about it the food lol you can only pic one entree for everyone to have, they will make exceptions tho, we had one vegetarian and i chose a different menu for her just ask your planner. Our cocktail hour was at North jacuzzi, again more private than south jacuzzi.



        I don't have my slide show yet so here's the link to my facebook page, my trash the dress and wedding pics i made view able by the public. So hopefully you guys can look at them. so there should be 2 albums!





        I think that's all I'm sure ill think of other stuff to say if you have questions let me know!




        Your photos are amazing and you looked beautiful :)


        How windy was it on the beach when you were having your photos taken? I really want to wear my hair down but i dont want my hair to be blowing around everywhere!

          Also, if you don't mind me asking, who did you tip for your wedding? I am thinking reception servers, wedding coordinator, hair and makeup people but wasn't sure if I'm missing anyone?

                I've noticed that every price that Eva has given me is $$$ + tax. I just looked up the tax rate in Mexico and it's 16%!!!!

                Is every price they give us and quote us subject to this 16% tax?? That adds so much more money that we weren't expecting to spend! 


                Our tax rate here in Texas is 8.25% so 16% seems extremely steep!!!

                I thought the tax was 11% as this is what I read in their wedding guide on the customized wedding services page.  It states that prices don't include the 11% tax and the food prices also get charged an additional 15% service fee.  Yes, it adds a hefty amount to the bill ;(
