@TeamArceo The silver menu was never an option (it's only with the basic wedding package), food is one of our priorities so we were going with platinum despite the extra price ($12 more for guests included in the 20 person wedding package and $70 for each additional guest). We are going with a sit-down dinner since we upgraded to the Seaside Grille and we never wanted a buffet. The platinum menu is very elegant and the main meal has the option for surf and turf lobster tail and filet mignon.

 

I don't know about the cocktail hour because we are having one :-)


@hsocorso Yes it's $1000 extra but all tables and chairs included

How is everyone getting all the stuff down there? Checking it all or trying to carry on as much as possible? My dress counts as my carry on as does my fiancé's suit, so we'll be checking extra bags that I figure I will buy cheap at thrift store and then just leave them there when we leave.

Most airlines will NOT count your dress as one of your personal items and will give that to you as a freebie... So if you can place your FI's suit in the same garment bag this will help out!

I'm starting to work on our budget planner form, do you guys know if we include ourselves (B&G) in the top part of the form where is asks for "# adults"? Thanks!


I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

@pddcmc I did, and I also clarified EVERYTHING on the form not only because I'm ocd but because I want no stress when we get there lol. So I included us and wrote out "including bride and groom"
@kmk2016 the airline told us it's counted as our carry on :-( and also said I have to put it in the overhead compartment. So I plan on playing dumb and hopefully a nice stewardess will give me closet space!

@nattiegams325 - Thanks! Another silly question, I am having two outside photogs... I supposed I should count them in the guest list for the wedding planner form so that they get a meal?

Hey Everyone! So I actually never got to introduce myself, I was so excited I just jumped in and started asking questions!!! I am getting married at Dreams Riviera on Sunday July 19th, 2015 at 6pm. So far we have the Ceremony on the beach, cocktail hour on the beach, and then the reception by the pool! We already have 42 people booked and we haven't sent out invitations. Below is a gallery of the Save the Dates that went out. Working on invites now!!

Happy 2015 Everyone!!!
First I would like to Thank everyone for the post, suggestions, and advice. I was down to three resorts and after reading the forums for Dreams it helped me confirm what to do.

I'm getting married December 11, 2015
Even though I have a long way to go.... I would appreciate if everyone continue to share the ceremony and reception picks at Dreams and if the brides returning from Dreams after their wedding can help out on tidbits.

After reading the forum yesterday I didn't realize all the options for having your wedding and reception. I didn't realize their were vendors in the area you can rent from (please supply the company names). After reading the forum I talked with my fiance about getting married here in Chicago and doing only a symbolic wedding in Mexico. He agreed. Thanks for that tip.

The more I read the more excited I'm becoming... looking forward to reading everyone continued journey to Dreams for their Dream Wedding.

Kindest Regards
