Hey Megsweet, Thank you! It took me ages to find the perfect dress so I am so happy I've finally got it. I am not sure what to trade the cocktail hour for, what about you? I have contacted Claudia as she's my co- ordinator because I wanted to change the ceromony time. But she hasn't got back to me. She does generally take around 2-3 weeks to reply in my experience. I'm going to hire a personal trainer after Christmas as I have my final fitting in January.

Wedding at 4 at the gazebo, break for pictures, 6-7 cocktail hour (I am keeping it because I love the idea of the mariachi band, and also I wanted to have some portion of the party outside) and I extended the reception an hour to do 7-11, in the ballroom. I saw someone asking for a pic of the ballroom... if you google Dreams Cancun Ballroom, in images, the first pic that comes up is an Elizabeth Medina photo of the ballroom all done up, and it looks gorgeous. I chose to go w/ the ballroom too bc of the dancing/sweating aspect. We decided to go with an outside photographer and dj... using cancun studios as the photographer and dj doremixx as the dj. Ended up choosing both of them based on reviews and following them for a bit on facebook. We chose the dreams ultimate package, so I am currently trying to swap out the photographer that they include for something... and all they are offering me is either a sound system for the ceremony or the drapes and flowers for the gazebo, which does not seem comparable in my opinion... anyone else have this issue?? Either way, I am super excited. Save the dates went out awhile ago, now I am just waiting on my invitations to get here so I can start that process. Curious to hear what everyone is bringing as far as decorations go vs. what they are paying to have dreams provide? My thoughts are to bring the programs, chair sashes, favors, and table place cards... and have them do everything else. Also... for anyone interested, I decided on getting two dresses, so I can swap out for the reception. David's Bridal has super affordable short dresses, for anyone who really likes to dance, but does not really enjoy sweating in makeup

I am bringing chair sashes, but I think that's about it really.
