        Just wanted to let everyone know about something I found out this week!

         

        If you are using the DJ for your reception, you can actually request him to be your "technician" for your ceremony as well. It's the same price as renting the sound system ($180) but he will be the technician that comes with it. Which means you can let him know what music you want and not have to worry about bringing a CD or iPod for the ceremony! He told me that he has me down for the ceremony and all I need to do is let the resort know he's going to be the technician so they don't have someone else available for it.

         

        I was really excited about this because he's been great to work with and I trust that he knows what he's doing when it comes to the ceremony music!

          anyone paying with CC make sure your company doesn't charge international fees! I got charged a hefty fee when I paid our deposit! :-/

            so I saw up there that someone said we need music for the sand ceremony....

            What are y'all going to use? I hadn't even thought about this because I figured it would be very short.

             

            So far this is what we have down for our music choices...

             

            Seating of guests - Jason Mraz/Colbie Caillet, Lucky

                                        Jason Mraz, I'm yours

            Wedding party - Train, Marry Me

            Bride entrance - Somewhere over the rainbow, Israel K.

            Recessional - Colbie Caillet, I Do

             

            We are still very torn on weddign party entrance and bride/groom entrance into the reception...

              I just got an email from Cecilia. (evangelina --> yamina --> lorena --> cecilia?)

              The signature in her email says she works at Dreams Cancun....

              She is asking me if we need anything from her before our arrival....

               

              Has anyone else heard from her also?

              I think I'm just going to reply to her and ask if she has all my info, emails, etc.

                That's good to know. Who are you using for DJ?

                  Hey ladies,

                  Anyone know the specific min/max # of guests for reception locations? The only ones i'm seeing on the request form are beachfront and garden. I'm curious what the #'s are for like pool terrace, pool deck, ballroom, ect.

                      Hello!

                      I am so excited, I confirmed my date today! Dreams Riviera here I come!! April 24, 2013. WooHoo!!

                       

                      Anyone know what time the pool closes? My Ceremony (gondola) is at 4pm, just trying to get an idea of how crowded it is. Also wondering because my reception will be on the pool deck, but I don't want a bunch of people swimming around behind us while we are eating (lol). I saw a picture of someone's reception while they were eating and there was this large man haning over the pool staring at the wedding party with a drink in his hand! Awkward...

                       

                      Also, anyone have feedback on the best location for the cocktail hour? I would prefer it to be somewhat private as well.

                       

                      I am so thankful to have found this BDW.com, you are all so helpful!!
