    Hi Teira! I'm having mine at the Oceana Pool Terrace (we're anticipating about 50 guests). Apparently it's a little more private, and your party won't feel like it's "lost" in it's surroundings. I would have loved to use the Cascada Terrace, if we were having a larger party. They're both gorgeous choices.

Where are you all have your receptions at? Please help!!

      Hi! Just thought I would check in.. I haven't been on here in a while. My wedding is May 12, 2011 at Dreams. I still have lots of planning to do! I'm trying to decide on photographer and video right now. Looking into Daniel Jireh or Enrique Morales.. Any suggestions. Who are you using?

        We're using Floataway Studios for our photography and videography. We're flying them in from Los Angeles for three days over the wedding-week extravaganza! If you want to use someone local, you should look into Fer Juaristi....many of the brides on here are cult followers (his pics are amazing!).

          Thanks for letting us know about OOT bags.  I was going to start creating my OOT bags when I saw this.  I definitely will keep it minimal with a welcome letter or just send an email before the wedding date.

           

          Good tip.

The only issue is that we planned this wedding in less than 4 months, and I feel like there's so much to be done. I have a clear idea of exactly what I want, I just have so many little questions about costs and options. Thanks for all of the quick responses :) I'll post some of my questions here and see if anyone has answers:

           

          Does anyone know how much the cigar roller Dreams uses is and how much they charge per cigar? I know there's tons of threads on here regarding the cigar roller but I can't find a clear answer anywhere.

           

          Sorry, No, I didnt do one.

           

          Did anyone decide not to do the OOT bags and send anything to the guests rooms instead? I'm the least creative person ever and I just can't imagine spending the time and money on little things that don't get used often. I'm thinking of having a bottle of sparkling wine sent to every room with a nice note instead. What do you girls think?

           

          I did a really little OOT paper bag with a cabo brouchure, welcome letter, koozie, advil and emergency. Everyone seemed grateful, but if i did my wedding over again this would be the first thing to go! I do like deeing my koozies now 1 year later at parties and on boats and such but they are completely useless at actual dreams.

           

          The only useful thing was the welcome letter, just had where we would meet for drinks on the non wedding activity nights, where the welcome dinner was etc. People liked having a low level outline of what we were doing if they wanted to come and join.

           

          Thanks again for all of the input and kind responses!

           

          Emelie

          i couldnt beleive it, and we all hoarded the sun screen the entire time and brought it home, it is my favorite sunscreen ever.

           

          And they refilled all these things as needed.

            Teira, We had 24 people total and we had our reception on the Cascade terrace. It was beautiful! We had 3 dinner tables set up on the higher level of the terrace, and it was nice and roomy, but it didn't feel empty. The bar was also on the higher level. On the lower level, we had the dance floor,which was outlined with Chinese lanterns. This was where DJ Ricardo was set up and where Lunas de Fuego performed. The reception was beautiful, the coordinators work hard to make sure it looks right. I'll post a full review and pics when I get the photos!

                We are having our reception at the oceans terrace but i am thinking about seeing if i can change it to the cascade terrrace, we have about 38 people total. I am also looking at having the palm trees lit up but not sure how many yet!

                  I finally posted my review along with a few pictures! Let me know if you have any questions. I'll make sure to post the professional pics once I get them back.

                   

                  Kiwibride, I really recommend having the palm trees lit up. I paid for 8 palm trees, and I think there were 10-13 lit up. It really looked incredible. If I had to decide between having the palm trees lit and underlit tables, I would definitely choose the palm trees! The underlit tables looked pretty good but the palm trees make a much bigger statement and are so much more noticeable!

                    thanks for that emmisa i have decided to cancel the hanging lanterns and go for the trees and the underlit tables. Look forward to seeing your photo's!
