Um, I just about fell over reading this review- sooo many things I've been stressing about were just answered! Thank you so much for all the details and photos. Love how you gave everything a grade- can't even tell you how helpful this was. You looked amazing by the way and just LOVED your dress!!
I was wondering if you or anyone could help answer this question for me. We are trying to decide whether to do an all-inclusive resort vs a non all-inclusive resort in Riviera Maya. As I am super interested in the Dreams resort you had your wedding at, I was a bit surprised to see the wedding cost was almost the same as what I've been quoted at a non-all-inclusive. It seems odd to me that if my guests are paying a higher rate towards their food & beverage, why are they resorts charging for cocktail hours, open bar, and a 3 course dinner? Don't get me wrong, I understand there is labor and set up involved as well as all the other enhancements (dj, photographer, etc.), but shouldn't it be less overall seeing the guests are already absorbing some of the cost?
Its something I just don't get and was hoping I could get a helpful response.
