    What does everyone think about the wedding cakes? I am so disappointed in the selection. Some of the cakes look like I could make them myself! I'm trying to keep an open mind.

      To be honest - I certainly was not impressed with my cake, but it was good enough for me.  I am sure there is the option of having an outside vendor make your cake and bringing to the resort, but you will have to pay an outside vendor fee on top of the cost of the cake.  Every bride has different ideas as to what is most important and therefore worth spending extra money on.

        I could live with the cake you had. I saw a picture of a cake that was under the review forum that was really bad! So I guess I will keep my fingers crossed that I get a decent cake. I know in the end the cake won't really matter. I'm just freaking out now that my day is approaching lol

          I think the key to mine not being so bad was that it was all white with the exception of the flowers.  With white on white you can't really see any mistakes - and they always choose beautiful flowers.  (I think the flowers on mine would have been more colorful and plentiful if they had gotten my cake right the first time around.  They had to stretch the flowers they mistakenly put on a 1-tier cake to decorate the correct 3-tier cake.)  I believe I paid an extra $150 to upgrade to a 3-tier cake.  Hardly anyone touched the wedding cake (after the dessert that came with the meal) because they were all on the dance floor - so it wasn't necessarily a good investment.  However, I wanted a bigger cake in my wedding photos and that is what I got....

              Did the picture not show up in post #6081 for you?  If not, the same picture is the 3rd from last picture in my "Dreams Cancun Wedding" album - in my post signature.

                  Has anyone ever found who Dreams actually uses as a florist. They never do tell u and I am curious. This is the only thing that I am worried about. The flowers are sooooo important to me.

                    Is there a charge for the rehearsal? If so, how much?

                      There was not a charge for a rehearsal.. However, if you want a rehearsal dinner then there is a charge. I don't remember exactly what it was but we chose not to have the dinner. Our rehearsal was in the morning and then we all just went to the beach together.
