Oh yes, it was loud enough. We had 16 including us... I thought it worked great, and we also were able to move it so easily to continue our party afterwards. Very easy to just create playlists on the ipod. ONly thing that was missing was the MC announcing things- not a big deal to us. :) Only thing is I only recommend the BOSE system, as the volume is great, we checkd out other systems and they were not as loud or good quality. The Bose system we had was a portable system and the battery worked all night.

I am so happy to hear your even turned out well :-)...I have a long wait for my day but I hope it is beautiful like all your ladies on here!!! can't wait to see the pics Juan took of you guys :-)
hmmm.... I must of missed the bad reviews because I have only seen very positive ones, but I must admit that the main reason I chose dreams was because of the location/gazebo. Once I saw that, I fell in love and did not even think twice about having it there and so happy we did. What other places are you considering?

Forgot to mention hair/make up in my review....

 

Wonderful experience w. that too. The girls there were awesome. I did not even have a picture with me with any idea, i just looked at the books they had and also trusted her judgement w. just an idea of how I wanted it and it was awesome. My MOH thought hers was beautiful too.

 

Make up was great- I just wanted natural color, not too dramatic and she did just that!

 

 

The spa is just amazing. when you walk in you seriously smell the relaxation. (not sure if that makes sense but you will understand what I mean when you walk in there lol)

Congrats Mel!!! im so happy that you got your dream wedding!!! You were a beautiful bride!

 

I had a question about the sand ceremony- what wording did you use, and was it said by the minister? I though I read somewhere that you had to get one of your guests to say the wording? And did you just carry the heart shaped bottle with the mixed sand in your carry on when you flew back home?

 

thanks for the great review and congrats again!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
