She is not having a sit down dinner, rather a cocktail party which is great because the guests can mingle and chat and at the same time they're able to save some money (they have 70 people booked so it will be big for a DW. Also she is super crafty so I know she's doing a lot of DIY as well. Apparently the resort has been really flexible about swapping things out for other things which is always a plus for brides considering where to go. I have never stayed at a Dreams before but I have stayed at other AM resorts - NOW Jade in Mexico and my cousin has stayed at the NOW resort in DR and loved it. I think you're definitely safe to go with one of them.
Oooohh never been to Mexico...Will one day but not right at this time since lots has happened in the last few years that have made me nervous but I know it is beautiful -- everyone who goes says so! I think that's a great idea about the cocktail only! I always said if I were to do a wedding here, I'd only do cocktail cause I am not a fan of a too formal affair (for my day). We'll do a dinner but I really expect only a few people, maybe 20? I know they have lots to chose from and rent but they let you bring your stuff....it's expensive to rent their stuff so I'm planning on doing a bit of DIY....I'd love to see what she does!!! My fiance has been at the Now in DR 6-7 years ago and liked it too!!! (he went with his ex when it wasn't owned by Now thus why we aren't getting married there lol). Now I'm excited for your trip down there I bet it'll be so much fun!
