Okay Ladies, 

 

I am getting married May 6, 2011  (yes in 4 weeks) at Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa - I am soooo behind the times. My maid of honor was recently diagnoised with breast cancer, going through Chemo and a double masectomany and we are in the process of moving and things have been soooooo stressful, I have completely put this wedding planning on the back burner.

 

Can you anyone who has had their wedding at Dreams please give me an idea of what I should bring as far as decorations, etc... We are expecting about 40 guest - I am going to order chair sashes today , but other than that I have no idea what I should bring.

 

Any suggestions as to what anyone did for gift bags and decoration. Also, I want to order wedding programs and rehersal dinner invitations  - Were you able to find out which resturant you would be using before you arrived in Mexico?

 

I am flipping out!!!!!!!!

Hi there,

 

I've never done a wedding at Dreams before, but I can offer a few ideas.  

 

Do you already have centerpieces picked out for the reception?  I guess the resort has a florist they work with?  To add a little extra you can always do Candles/votives. They add such a romantic feel.  You can just pick some up at a craft store and take them down with you.  

 

I'm not sure what decoration is already provided by the resort and what is not, but here are some things you can consider:

* colored or white table cloths with organza overlays or colorful runners

* decorating with artevela candles - so beautiful

* maracas are fun if it goes with the theme

* rose petals strewn about

* palm leaf decoration

* naming your tables and adding a picture with it - something to describe you as a couple

 

for invitations you might be a little pressed for time - perhaps you can just order some stock and print them.  or you may find someone local who can get them to you quickly.

here is a recycled paper site:

http://www.greenfieldpaper.com/ they have lots of stock

 

hope this helps!!!!

 

contact the WC at the resort too, explain your situation, and hopefully they can get back to you in a timely manner!! :)

 

Leanne

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
