I'm finally getting around to posting some sort of recap with pictures of my day!
I'm a very detailed oriented type of person so I put way to much stress on myself before the wedding.. but let me tell you Mayte has it covered. I did bring stuff with me, but she had a lot of great ideas of her own. We struggled for a bit in the beginning because I told her I wanted vintage glam with fushcia and Orange and she told me those colors were too bright. But after I had showed her what I brought and my husband told her we watned 'vintage hollywood' she pulled it off brilliantly.
The weather the morning of the ceremony was beautiful. At the resort is was SOOO Hot... but once we got on the Jellyfish the ocean breeze was so refreshing that everyone was comfortable.
After the ceremony, there was a HUGE wind/sand storm! The centerpiece on our sweetheart table toppled over and shattered and everyone was getting sand in their face and decorations were faling everywhere! it was a little crazy! The wait staff rushed to lower the "walls" just in time for the rain storm! luckily it only lasted for about 1/2 hour. During the rain storm, our videographer (Diego Cores - LOVED HIM!) wisked us and our photographers away to the second floor to do some video of us in the canopy beds (these are some of my favorite pictures). But then there was a power outage right in the middle of announcing our bridal party
After the rain, a beautiful rainbow was in the sky!
The food was DELICIOUS! After dinner we had dancing on the beach. we rented an LED dance floor (it was my husbands only request) and it was the hit of party! The dance floor was packed the whole night! The House DJ was great.. we didn't give him a song list.. However, we wanted latin music... so we told him merengue, salsa, bachata and top 40 and that's what he gave us. Some of the guests did song requests and he accomodated that too. If you have specific music you want though... definitley do a song list. We loved our party!
We also had the fire show that everyone loved!
Overall, it was the perfect dream wedding! Feel free to ask any questions you may have

THANK YOU so much for answering my questions! Very helpful!
re: #2 -We plan on getting there a few days before the wedding.. so we will definitely meet with Mayte prior to the wedding.
re: #3 - We are also staying at Dreams Palm Beach ... but I'm anticipating 60+ guests... not sure that I will be able to have a rehearsal dinner that will comfortably accommodate all guests outside of the bridal party.
re: #4 - Eeek! That might be problematic since I'm anticipating 60+ guests, I'll discuss that with her and get that figured out. Thanks for mentioning that to me!

You're welcome! I'm sure Mayte will either have 2 buses or make 2 trips to accommodate all the people. You're not her first bride with a larger party. I'm sure she has it all taken care of. As far as rehearsal at dreams pb, none of the restaurants can accommodate 60 at once. You can probably get a section of the buffet to make some tables for everyone if you'd like to have all the people there, we just had a table for 18 set up in the buffet for the bridal party and family members and it was perfect. They sat other resort guests away from us too so it was semi-private where we sat. They also put white tablecloths set it up nicely for us. We had a waiter for drinks and anything we needed. If that isn't want you want to do you can pay for a private dinner on the beach for your party but I'm not sure of how much that costs.
