    Congrats on setting a date! Just wanted to mention that as long as you've been charged, the date is set. You won't get a signed contract from Claudia until you meet with her at the resort a few days before your wedding. I guess it's just how they do things in Mexico. In fact, we did a wire transfer and never got confirmation that Dreams received it but our wedding day was still reserved for us!

     

    Have fun planning, a year will go by before you know it!

    I have been active on this site since June and I have been lurking around this thread while 1) deciding  between Dreams Cancun & Dreams Puerto Aventuras and then 2) working on securing a date with TA Jill.

     

    Congrats to all the brides that are nearing their special days!

        We have signed up for the Ultimate package.  I am pretty sure we will have 20 or more people, so the Ultimate really makes sense.  Based on the prices on the contract, it will cost ~$90 per person (including taxes and such for cocktail hour and reception) above the package price so the difference in the prices between the Ultimate and the next package down is made up for by the extra people it includes.

          OK so been emailing back and forth with Cecilia this morning, added the sound system to the ceremony as she notes the guests won't hear our vows if we don't.  I'm a bit dissappointed about the Eternity Honeymoon Pacakge - we can't get it as even though we have 24 nights accomodation booked over 5 rooms, becuase 1 of the rooms is only staying 2 nights not 3 they won't give it to us.  Cecilia says she has to prove to reservations department that there are 5 rooms staying 3 nights or we need the honeymoon category or hgher room.  I figure it just sucks a bit that I have fmaily spending a week in the hotel in rooms but becuase my friend can only stay 2 nights we lose out....... sorry for my rant eveyone just a tad dissappointed thought it would have been nice treat and had my mum look after my little girl for the night!  Nevermind, back to the drawing board.  Happy Friday every one!

            I'm sorry Tory! They get so much business that they just don't do even the little things for the bride. It seems unfair especially when we have to pay so much for the little things!! My wedding is a year and 5 1/2 months away and we did a spreadsheet last night with all the extra we want and we are realizing it is gonna be around 8k just for the wedding not including our flights!! A little stressful, it would be nice if they would give you a discount on your rooms, I mean after all you just brought in some business for them. My guests will be staying 3-4 nights not even a week so I guess that doesn't qualify me either. That is the package we are putting together for our guests so we can have a honeymoon! Your wedding will be perfect, I can't wait to see your pictures!!

              I was hoping for some help and advice. I was very dissapoointed in the flower choices in the pdf wedding planner guide to pick from. I noticed that there have been some gorgeous flower bouquets in the recent weedings on Juan's facebook page. I posted a picture of Carolina's gorgeous flowers!! Does any know how expensive it is or how difficult to get the bouquet you want? I appreciate any help guys!!

                Hi all brides to be and those married at Dreams Cancun, 

                 

                I just got back yesterday from Cancun! We had the best trip ever and our wedding day was more than perfect!!!! All I can say is put your trust in the Dreams Cancun staff and they are AMAZING! 

                I will write a full review, but just wanted to post a little something that might help some of you planning. 

                First off, I thought I wanted some extra stuff and that this and that mattered......when we got there I kind of didn't care anymore. The setting is absolutely beautiful, Claudia made our wedding day more beautiful and amazing then I could have imagined (all I wanted was the ocean!). When I say "more than perfect" I truly mean that. EVERYONE involved with our wedding was fantastic and when I was there I did not worry about a thing! 

                 

                Bouquets..................you can have whatever you want, the flowers you see in the PDF are the kind that come with the package, but you can have any of those flowers arranged how you like (I have all orange lillies, done very simple, they were perfect!). 

                 

                Bascically, our dream wedding......................we had the Ultimate package, base (no extras except sound system and traded out cocktail hour for extra guests at dinner). We tipped Claudia after we paid her, and beleive me it was worth it. She threw in center peices, chair bows at the reception (that I"m not really into, but they looked fantastic), a DJ, lights on the dance floor, a massive wedding cake, flowers for the girls hair and so on. They really go above and beyond and KNOW how to put on a wedding! We had absolutely nothing to complain about in the slightest. Also, we did not upgrade photography or videography, and they took so many amazing pics, I don't think I could have found more beatutiful pics in a magazine! 

                 

                Try not to worry about stuff, because on your wedding day it will be perfect and your guest will LOVE dreams!!! Trust me!!!

                 

                Good luck in the planning, and I will write my review this week I hope and post some pics!!!!

                  I am so happy for you!!! She threw in a DJ for free!! That is awesome. I can't wait to see your pictures and I am so glad you had a worry free day!!

                    Tomick -

                     

                    How in the world did you get all of that stuff for free? The DJ, the dance floor?  Those are worth a couple thousand dollars!  Sounds like you got a fantastic deal!!!!  I can only hope for the same...

                     

                    Has anyone else heard of any of the same types of freebies?

                      Tomick -welcome back, congratulations and good for you!  I am so pleased for you..... wow.... truly how did you get such freebies, I am in Aw......

                      I have booked the DJ, DAncefloor and soundsystem for the ceremony and Cecilia has been adding it all onto my invoice and sending me updates........

                      Even though I mentioned to her I pay for 20 people and I only have 16 attending including kids it was basically sorry, the package is a good deal so there is nothing I can do for you in the way of anything for free...... good for you!

                       

                      Can't wait to see your review.

                       

                      Ladies who have already been married, can't decide on the desert - stupid thing I know, has anyone got pictures of the food or input on what food was good / bad to help us make the decesions - our house is spilt 3 ways Jason, my little girl and myself over what food we should be choosing!! :)

                       

                      Thanks all,

                      Tori
