JBailey- Just got back today. You will have an amazing time! Magda was wonderful. A few minor things did not go as planned, but I'm happy with everything. Our guests had a great time at Dreams and Magda works so hard to make all her brides happy. If you are anything like me, you are probably stressing right now about last minute details and Magda not getting back to you, but I promise it will all work out!!!

Oh good, SO glad to hear that!! Yes you wrote at a good time because I am trying not to stress out! Do you have any pictures yet? I'm sure everything turned out beautifully!

I don't have any of the professional photos yet, but I can upload a few pics that friends took and have posted on Facebook. When do you leave for Cabo? Have you had a hard time getting in touch with Magda?

Gorgeous!! Thank you so much for posting those!
Magda just emailed me back today and I have a couple questions:
-Did you have a welcome dinner at El Patio, and if so did you have to choose a pre-set menu? I'm not sure how to go about doing this since I don't know that everyone will like the same thing?
-Where was your cocktail hour? Ours was originally planned for the Oceana Terrace but today she suggested the beach.. What did you guys end up doing?
Thanks so much and once again, beautiful pictures!!

Our rehersal dinner was held @ El Portofino. I was really upset because we paid a lot of $$ for it, and we were seated outside. El Portofino is not that big, so I think thats why, but I was still very upset. Aside from that, the setup for the rehersal dinner looked pretty. They do make cute printed menus for you. Marv and I selected a salad and then 3 main courses for our guests to choose from. We also selected one dessert. I chose Portofino because I knew from my site visit that this would be a little more intimate than other options. El Patio is a buffet restaurant when it is open for resort guests.
We chose to do our welcome cocktail at the Rendevous bar, which is the lobby bar. It cost us absolutely nothing which is why we chose this. Because we had 60 guests, we had to cut back somewhere because all the little details like rehersal dinner, OOT bags, welcome cocktail, they def start adding up. So our guests met us there between 730-9 pm and we introduced everyone. We had ppl come from FL, NY, SC, MD, NC, PA, etc.... so not everyone had been formally introduced and this was a nice time to do that. Also, we had a rep for a Excursion company handing out our OOT bags (our TA hooked us up with them as the excursion company arranged our transport to and frm airport) as guests checked in, but any that she did not hand out we gave out at our welcome cocktail. To be honest, looking back, I wish we had done something a little more interactive. Initially I was going to do a tequila tasting thing, but decided against it because my mother is a strict christian and I didn't want her, her best friend, or her sister to feel uncomfortable. But it would have probably been funner and it was not very expensive. I saw lots of couples do a casino night welcome event which seemed fun. I also saw one welcome cocktail on the beach and it looked really pretty.

Thank you for the info! Maybe I'll see if we can have 3 options to choose from as well. I was also going to ask you about the Dreams Salon.. Did you end up using it and were you happy with the way things turned out? Thanks again for all of your help and expertise!
