Dreams LOOONG Wedding Review

Thank you so much for a great review and all your insight. (I even took some notes).
I am so sorry for the accident and glad he is doing well.
Quick random questions...
How did you get all your wedding decorations there... did you ship it or bring it with you?
What time did you tell your guest to arrive for the ceremony? (ours also starts at 5:00 on the beach)
Also Did you have to pay an extra fee for using an outside cake vendor or was this vendor provided by dreams? What about photographer?
Thanks again and can't wait to see your pics!

Thanks so much for the detailed review! I'm sorry you had to deal with all those stressful situations after you already were stressed & worried about your FIL! It sounds like they all added up over the day. Having described everything with such detail will definitely help us get organized so thank you!
You said for the menu at your reception you offered chicken or fish. Did you have people pick their entree before arriving? If so, how did you let the wait staff know who was having what entree? Or did you just have them ask at the table?

btw, were your luggage tags the ones that came in several colors with little travel symbols on one side, look like "leather" & have stitching on them? I bought some in green from a BDWer & she said they were from Michaels, but I wasn't sure if they still carry them.

Allyson - sorry I forgot to answer this! We brought our decorations down there in our suitcases. Shipping was too expensive and the hotel wouldn't claim responsibility for them so we didn't have a place to send them. It worked out fine! I sent some things along with other people (stuff we wouldn't need right away) and the rest we packed. It was a good option for us because my FH is in the Air Force so he got 3 free checked bags up to 100 lbs (on USAirways). I got one freebie, and we paid for one more of mine - just cost us $15. We packed some of our suitcases inside one another on the way back.
We told our guests to get there at 4:45. We probably should have told them it was STARTING then because some were a little late and they were milling about - it took them a bit to get settled. I should have appointed someone to grab the mic and "direct" them a little more. But it was also soooo hot that I think people were waiting for the last possible moment to get out there. Since you are scheduled for Oct, it will still be warm. I would push your wedding back as late as possible! Our video is so funny - if you didn't know, you'd think we were nervous about getting married! Our faces are so funny! Until we give up all sense of being discreet and just start wiping our sweat away openly with napkins! Then you can tell we're just hot!
We didn't have to pay an extra fee for the cake vendor or the photographer. Neither were from the hotel.
