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)

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
