Thank you so much Emily! :) I paid $150 in all for lighting through the resort. The lanterns I went with were supposed to be $10 a piece through Dreams, and I only paid for 15. But in my case and in others I've heard before mine, the staff went ahead and hung 20 lanterns when it came time to set-up so I got lucky.

 

Amols charges $2.95 per pair of maracas. However, the site advertises that if you buy more than 12 pair, it goes down to $1.95 per pair.  I knew I would have around 30 guests so I ordered extra and paid $1.95 per pair. Can't beat that price!

 

You're getting close! Good luck my fellow Dreams Riviera bride!

Wedding Music

This was by far the toughest part of planning for me. Sure, the most important part is and should always be marrying your one true love surrounded by those you love most. :) But to be honest, as detail-oriented as I myself am, I am more likely to remember a fun and unique wedding over all the small details at a reception if you get my drift. With this being said,  I was very picky when it came to music, and I knew I wanted my choices to really set the tone for our wedding. I basically went for "meaningful, yet non-cheesy" mood during our ceremony, "chill" during our reception dinner and "fun and upbeat" for our reception because hubby and I love to dance.

I chose all instrumental songs for our ceremony until the exit where it transitioned into a more upbeat mood. Besides that part, I wanted our wedding to be super relaxed and fun for guests.  We had a mariachi trio who guests really enjoyed play during our cocktail hour while groom and I were off taking photos. Next came the reception. Overall, even with only 27 guests, it was a blast, and I credit that to our wonderful DJ keeping up with the crowd, our light-up dance floor, and some fun song choices for all ages.  By the end of the night, we had break dancing, the alligator, soul train, limbo, waiters dancing with us, you name it. Lol! My advice is to really think about what kind of mood you're trying to set before choosing your songs if music is important to you too.
