    Girls are right, $1000 non refundable deposit....even after calling, I have not received any email proposal to hold our date.  I don't help my situation by attending a bridal fair on the weekend!!! Makes me more anxious to book, haha!  Hoping to see something this week from Annie and book my time in paradise

      Does anyone know how many people sit at each table? We are only having 25-30 people so I'm wondering how many tables we will have and if we need to do table numbers or just have the name cards set at each place?

        Hi ladies,

         

        We're getting married at L.C. in June and staying at Dreams P.V. We want to have a welcome dinner at the hotel but they don't take reservations. Have any past brides had their welcome dinner at that resort? Our only concern is that we are have about 50 guests and are afraid we won't be able to sit together. We would just have drinks at one of the bars at the resort but we'll have small children with us.

          I'm getting married in March and staying at the Dreams in Nuevo Vallarta and we are only having about 30 guests. We are paying extra for a private welcome dinner. It is about $30 per person, I just didn't want to have that problem of not being able to find a spot, sit together, or for it to seem unorganized, so we are paying the extra money. I would call their wedding coordinator and see what they offer.

            Another question. How many of you are doing OOT bags? Did you do one per room? One per person?

              I did 1 bag per person, but for the "welcome book," being I did them all by hand, i gave 1 per couple.  For the people that came as singles and shared a room, they all got 1 item in their bag.  It seemed to work really well and they all loved it.

                We stayed at Dreams PV as well.  We were able to talk to the concierge people around Noon-ish on the day we wanted a group dinner and gave them a heads up we had 55 people going to X restaurant.  It's best to go to the restaurant EXACTLY when they open so you have the easiest time getting seated together.  We did run into an issue on 1 of the nights where the restaurant saved our seats and then they seated 2 parties at our reserved tables that were not part of our group.  That was frustrating, so half of us ended up going to another restaurant.

                We all enjoyed hanging out at the lobby bar.  It's connected to the lobby/entry way so the baby in our group was able to just hang out in the lobby area, which worked well because there was overflow in the bar and other guests went back and forth into the bar as well.

                Some guys in our group went fishing and caught a couple big tunas.  The resort offered to prepare the fish and reserved us 55 spots in the buffet restaurant, which was a nice plus!

                  Alli- did you do beach bags? I was just figuring out how much it would be if I did a "beach" bag per person with the stuff i want to put in it and it would be $40 a bag...YIKES...and not sure the "guys" would use a beach bag, so I was thinking of one bag per room and putting a mix of stuff for the guys/girls and the rooms where there is just one guy, giving them a small travel bag for their shaving stuff? I dunno...this part is stressing me out more than anything!!!!!

                    this is pretty much what we did.  we stayed at Dreams PV as well, and had a private welcome dinner by the pool.  it was an extra cost per person (I can't remember how much) but i had appetizers and dinner.  it was nice because people got to mingle and get to know each other w/o taking over a restaurant.

                      I stayed at the Westin and did a great welcome dinner including drinks at River Cafe. I had the hotel call vans/cabs (about 30 people). Everyone loved getting out of the hotel and heading into downtown. The food is wonderful and even on a budget it was not very expensive and they really worked with me.
