    I have some questions too!

    i was reading one post that said it was dark by like 5 o'clock on the beach- my wedding is at 6- now i'm kind of freaking out! also, we're having the coctail hour on the terrace but the reception will be on the beach- has any one done this? will it be too windy on the beach? I though i had everything under control and now i'm second guessing everything!! and we have 99 days left!!!!

      I was there at the end of June and the sun set somewhere between 6:45 and 7:00...

        great- thank you!

        was it really THAT windy on the beach? I'm sure it's different everyday- i should probably just relax!

          Does anyone have a pre-wedding brochure or passport booklet that was used for Dreams Cancun?

            I was only by the gazebo...and it was windy, but not that bad. I am also doing a beach reception- I think thats the way to go...and if its windy, oh well- at least that will make people less hot!

              OK...so I've been away from site for a while- but I'm back!

              Here is what I have done:
              reserved the date -June 14th 2009
              I have 23 booked so far (I think we are looking at a final 40)
              Booked Caludia Rodriguez for Photog
              Booked Mannia for DJ
              Booked our rooms and travel
              Booked mini-moon (Excellence Rivera Maya)

              We are doing:
              Reception on beach /Cocktail on terrace (still iffy on times and schedule)

              also:
              we booked a boat to take our guests on a mini snorkel trip (cancun catamarans)

              now i need to:
              make welcome brochures
              buy favors (buy here and ship)
              buy decorations (walmart /cancun)
              pick food and decide on wedding package details
              decide on music
              lose 22 pounds.

              ok- i think that's it....yikes.

                    Exactly- i'm not going to worry about wind (they'll be so much alcohol it doesn't even matter!!
                    Here is what I have done so far:
                    reserved the date -May 6th 2009
                    14 poeple booked
                    Booked our rooms and travel

                    We having the ceremony (at 6pm) in the gazebo, cocktail housr on the terrace and the reception on the beach also.

                    I've also ordered all of my favors. (i will ship them to the hotel a day or 2 before i go there)
                    I will make up OOT bags when i get there as well.

                    We got the wedding package that includes the photog- don't think we're getting a videographer.
                    we got the tech with the sound system for the ceremony and i think we're going to do the same for the reception as well. one bride said they just used the cd/ipod player from the room (but i don't want to be in charge of changing the songs- go i'm getting the tech.

                    Still need my passport (yikes!!!) and the rings, but otherwise i think we're pretty much set (i hope)
