    Was anyone able to extend their reception time beyond 11pm? Is this an option at this resort? TIA!

    @OL88 I don't think you can extend beyond 11. I think that is resort policy, but you can start earlier to have longer time for reception.

    Is anyone having their weddings at the same times as another weddings? I know the resort books two weddings a day and David just told me that on my date, there would be another bride having a ceremony at the gazebo and reception at the pool terrace. I had wanted to do my entire wedding at the beach, so I was okay with that being the only location left. 

     

    However, I am really nervous about the noise of the two weddings impacting each other. He told me that as we would be at the north beach, on the other side, there should be no noise problems. Looking at a map and pictures of the resort, I think the two weddings will at least be able to clearly see each other (which I'm actually okay with). 

     

    But if anyone has any experience on whether noise would be a problem, I would really appreciate any insight. I'll be down there in two weeks to personally check it out. But this is starting to drive me nuts!

     

    Additionally, should I be worried that I won't have their full attention? I'm assuming each wedding would have their own WC and staff right?

     

    Thanks girls!

    @yuniedo hey girl! Congrats on booking your date!!! The blank budget planner I have is really outdated and it actually had me misled for months because basically all the prices had changed and my budget was way off! Long story short--ask David for it and he should send it right over :)

    @yuniedo
    Hi! I did a site visit last February for my January 2016 wedding. I saw weddings almost everyday. The night we arrived, there was 2 weddings going on. One of the reception is the seaside grill and the other one is on the beach. Even if lets say there's a north and south beach reception, you cant hear the noise of one another. The resort may seem small in maps but in person there's nothing to worry about. There's definitely plenty of room for 2 weddings. And you actually will barely see each other. There's a good space between the north and south.
    And yes we will get our own wedding coordinator 3 months prior to our wedding date and that will be assigned to take care of our wedding. :-)

    @smileitseb I'll keep my fingers crossed for sunshine on your wedding day! Plus, my experience with Mexico has been that it rains for a little bit and tend to pass quickly.

     

    General question for everyone, did you use a TA or did you do your room blocks/airfare through the resort? And if you used a TA, would you rec them? I'd appreciate any recs since I've never used one before. 

     

    Thanks!

    @yuniedo I used a TA and definitely recommend going that route! have u already booked a room block. you should prob do that asap if not because the resort sells out (esp of the cheaper rooms) :) A TA on this site referred me to my TA, who specializes in Dreams resorts. Her name is Teresa Stauring with Vacations4Less, shes been great :)

      TA is most recommended especially for the promotion for upgrades and free room stay.

      @smileitseb Don't fret. I heard that the rain in Mexico is sporadic - kinda like Florida rain. So it may rain briefly and the sun will come out to make it the best day ever!  Plus you may get lucky and get a rainbow in your pics! Stay positive and know that it is actually good luck to have rain on your wedding day - but in this case, we will pray that the rain occurs before your wedding.  What time is your wedding?
