    How about you?  How far along are you?
     

    Oh and DO NOT PAY for the cocktail hour...my TA said in all her years doing weddings nobody ever pays for a cocktail hour...it's a money grab.  Just tell your guests to meet at one of the bars (they're likely all part of the all inclusive plan anyways) and have them have a couple drinks there while you do your photos.  My TA saved me $2000 by not having to pay the extras on the cocktail hour...i love her! LOL

                What do you think so far of Gaby? She's been helpful and responds quickly but it seems like Ana was willing to do a little more... we had spoken about mixing things up a bit with the wedding package and Gaby has said no to most of them... sooo idk im a little worried because it seems like we're going to have to upgrade a ton! For example I'm waiting to hear back now on if we can use the wooden chairs shown in all the pictures on the wedding pdf or if thats an extra cost becuase the package says only the white covered chairs are available, We're leaning towards the Ultimate wedding package bc of the group size we have, but if most things end up being upgraded anyways we may go for a lower package. Im kinda in the same place as you are tho, I've looked at bridesmaid dresses havent picked one out for sure yet tho. i know what i want as far as the little things go- decorations gifts to give to guests and what not... just not sure how im going to get them to mexico.. If i should ship them down early or what. Finally this week we got the contract for the rooms and we got that in so its for sure now, May 29,2011! getting ready to order save the dates and invites.  What new things have you done? Im contemplating between using the DJ and just using the sound system and what not for a little less.. 300 an hr is a good bit! I've heard the dj's are pretty good tho...

                      Ana and her assistant were amazing from what we could see. The resort was truly a dream come true. We went Memorial Day weekend and it was almost at full capacity and we would never have known. The service was incredible and the guests were all so friendly. We did meet 2 families that had switched from Dreams Cancun because of the rowdiness. Dreams Riviera is brand new so of course it is up to date and simply georgeous. It is not a big resort which we loved we could get from A to B fast and we often ran into the new friends we had made. Now that we are home, we have remained in contact with the couples we met (gotta love facebook) We are so excited to go back to heaven and I can officially be Mrs. Judy Francis



                      Hi!

                      Congrats on your engagment! I am getting married there in June! When you went for the site visit, where did you decide to have your reception? I want to have it somewhere inside but have never been there- any suggestions?? Thank you!
