    I do not remember the exact name of the market, i think it was fiesta marcato or something like that....here is the directions when you leave the front of dreams which is on the end of the road walk toward the big round about but stay on the right hand side of the sidewalk past the big pink hotel beside dreams, then once past the roundabout you will see starbucks and a mall of some sorts cross the road at the first set of lights after the roundabout on the right side and walk past a small strip of restaurants and spa/salons and you will see it, its a big yellow building, also if you ask claudia she will direct you there. We also bought unique flavors of pringles and doritos for our oot bags. 

     

    Now as for desires, there is no entrance fee, the club is for dreams guests. You have to walk out of the resort and the entrance for it is right there, all the drinks are all inclusive. The night of our rehearsal dinner we all went there after, it was karaoke night and all our guests sang, it was so much fun. 

     

    As for first look pictures, I am not sure where would be a good spot that isnt extremely windy! Everywhere was pretty windy, but the good thing the salon puts major hairspray in and it looks awesome. We had our ceremony right before sunset, had 30 min of pictures after the ceremony of sunset, and I would not change that our pictures turned out amazing!!! Everyone that sees them say they are the best pictures they have ever seen. Here is a link to my pictures on facebook.

      I think I'm going to push everything closer together for my guests then, cause I don't want people passing out for sure! On the reviews I believe it was rudabaga or something like that, she had her wedding at noon and I just loved her pictures. I liked the sun in the back with the ocean, that's why I picked noon to start. I could push it back until 2pm.  I just don't want to miss my own cocktail hour when taking pictures,  Is anyone doing a trash the dress session?

        Thank you so much for the directions and the info on Desires.  My fiance LOVES karaoke - you said it was the night of your rehearsal dinner, was that a Friday night? 

         

        Random question about the resort:  how do you find out theme nights for the club, entertainment, etc.?

              I found this website, and have been keeping updated on what goes on day to day there.  If you click on the sundial it tells you what the events daily entail!!   http://dreamscancun....ntGroupID=17343  

              I also wanted you ladies to know that I asked Cecilia about the private dinner offered in the YouTube video.  You qualify for that if you have the Ultimate Wedding Pkg, and a Honeymoon Suite or better and/ or 5 rooms booked or more with at least 3 nights at the Resort.. They consider this the ELITe honeymoon Pkg.  I hope this all Helps

              I ordered Maracas from AMOLS.com they got here quickly and were inexpensive.... believe it or not, I wrote our names and the date with a heart... in Sharpi, and they came out nicely!!! I was able to get 250 buiness cards free from Vistaprint.com, which I put our names...and the date on the front... and I'm using them as the favor card we are attaching... I just printed labels with the ..."Mexican class" saying on the opposite side.. I figured the cards will end up in the trash, so FREE was the best opition for us!!  LOL   We plan on bring two luggages with our wedding ceremony deco, Reception deco, favors and ootbags,  I don't quite know how the customs thing works... I have saved all of my receipts, and hope that with our names attached to most of the stuff, the'll see its for a wedding.

           

          OUr big day is less than 2months away!!!!! So excited!!!!!!!

                We went to Coco Bongo after the reception!! We all took one hour to go get changed and freshened up and we got a group discount to get into the club. It was really amazing.

                  I agree about not missing your own cocktail hour - another great thing about a destination wedding!  Is anyone else looking forward to the mariachi trio at their cocktail hour?

                   

                  I will be doing a TTD session with my photographer.  I am looking forward to those pictures almost as much as my wedding day pics.

                      We talked to one of the promoters standing outside. He let me and the groom in for free as well. We were a group of 20 and paid $40 each. Included all drinks. The concierge at dreams can also hook you up for a group discount at clubs. It's a not only a club, they put on a show too so the older people also really enjoyed it. Check out the website.

                      How did you get the group discount?!
