        Natalie probably won't answer you - she's due to have a baby within the next few weeks, so I'm sure she's very busy.

        Where have you ordered your dress(es) from previously?? Have you considered wearing your actual wedding dress? I know a lot of brides have (and I plan to) and they haven't gotten ruined at all. What material is your dress made from?

                Well Jackie I leave in 4 days so I have been very busy packing and packing!!! I have almost everything done at this point. I think there has to come a point where you have to just say ENOUGH! You could keep thinking of those last minute extra's forever.
                Our wedding is at 4pm on the beach at Dreams. 10 days in Cabo and then a 10 day honeymoon to a romantic inn/lodge in Vail, CO. I have no idea how I am going to get all this stuff to Cabo/Vail. I have already shipped stuff to Vail ...my UPS bill was $400! I need a HUGE suitcase or two..or five! I am hoping my dress makes the trip okay. Any suggestions?
                I am excited to meet Juan..he has been a big help already. Hopefully, the next couple of days are smooth as I tie up loose ends!!!

                    Thats the best way to look at it. Youve allready done all the worrying you possibly can. At this point what ever isnt done or planned probably isnt really needed anyways. A lot of girls said that the airlines let them hang their dress up by the front of the plane. But a lot of brides also said that they werent able to do that and had to put their dress in the overhead. Either way Dreams steams the dress for you anyways and I havent read one review yet that said there dress was not as nice after the traveling.
                    Your going to have a blast 10 days in Cabo and 10 day in Colorado. Can I come with you!!!!! Have fun, we cant wait till you come home and tell us all about it.

                    What month is your wedding? I'll put you on the list.
                    If you search DJ's you will definitly find DJ Ricardo's info, or maybe try pm'ing one of the girls on this thread that is using him. I am using DJ Ron so no help there.
                    I'm not sure about the booking 10 rooms thing, I thought if you did that than you were upgraded to a honeymoon suite but I think you still pay the price of the junior sweet. I could be wrong on that one.

                      Has anyone on the forum gotten married at Dreams but had their private reception elsewhere?

                      If so, where did you have it?
