    wow. that is crazy. i will tell you this, you are able to plan a wedding in 2 months. it is possible!
    feel free to email me
    Hello Brides.

    Brace yourself for this:
    I have had my wedding planned for the past 9 months for the date of April 7, 2008 at the Iberostar Tucan and 2 weeks ago for various serious reason chose to cancel at the resort and change everything....PURE PANIC!!!

    I have been on my computer non-stop for the past week reading and re-reading these forums. THANK GOD I stumbled upon this website. I have been relatively silent and still very much in the dark on how to effectively use this forum. I have seen (or read) weddings planned and brides return from their honeymoons to their new married lives. I feel like I have a secret life and new friends that don't even know I am here And I have certainly learned all sorts of new abbreviations...lol. My FI thinks I am addicted.

    I have been back and forth between Dreams and the Paradisus RM. It sounds like Dreams is nearly unbeatable for a wedding. My only hesitation is that I was trying to avoid the hustle and Americanized bustle of Cancun. But, you gals have me pretty much talked into Dreams. Lucky for me April 6, 2008 is available and it looks like this will be my new date. Maybe this has all been a blessing in disguise...very disguised. Now I just hope I can do all the planning and details in 2 months. It sounds almost impossible, but please wish me luck. I have learned an enormous amount and so appreciate you all sharing your stories and photos. I hope to return the favor.

    Sorry for the long post, but I needed to get this introduction out of the way...

    Shout out to PDXlove. I am a PDX gal too.

    Not enough points to open much of the recent pricing and flower info that has been posted- Nor can I send PM

    Would TiffJT mind sending info to jeannehofbauer at hotmail dot com?

    Just a couple of questions for past brides and site visitors:

    Is the beach nice at Dreams? It looks nice, but TA said it is rocky.

    Happy with the rooms?

    Is the staff friendly- I know Claudia and Daniella are, but what about the rest of the employees?

    Recent poster who is having fireworks- that is so great. How are you doing this?

    Thanks agian to all and I sincerely hope that I can finalize my date and you will all be seeing a lot more of me. :)

      Wow - Just finished reading all 70 pages of this thread. Been cutting and pasting all the great tidbits of info. Thanks to all who have gone before and Congratulations !!!

      Just a few introductions - We are getting married July 14, 2008 at Dreams Cancun. We are looking at about 25 guests. We live in Massachussetts, about an hour west of Boston.

      We don't have many points, being new to the site, so any and all attachments, photos, etc - if people want to send them via email, we would greatly appreciate it. Please send to:

      hans.mueller@inbox.com or
      hmueller19@charter.net

      For those of you going to, or thinking of Secrets Capri for your honeymoon, you won't be disappointed. It is beautiful - we got engaged there in Dec 06. If anyone wants pictures, let me know and I will send them along.

      PaulaV - Congrats on your upcoming big day. Please give us a recap when you get back - We read Jilly's and Susan's, and they were great help.

      We will be checking back daily... Thanks again to everyone.
      Hans & Vickie

        Question for Jilly or anyone who knows this: Is there seating in the terrace already or do they set up seating only for weddings? In other words, have you been there when there wasn't a wedding and what seating, if any, was there?
        I don't think they have seats on the terrace when nothing is going on, there may have been a few chairs, but I can't remember for sure, nothing much.

                  Cool, I saw that! Its about time! Dreams Tulum has a better presentation put together for wedding packages, I wish Dreams Cancun had the same thing! Oh and also they mentioned that soon they will be able to offer a webcam for the ceremony. (See below from the FAQ's) This is cool! Wonder how much!!?

                  For family and friends who cannot attend - Help them be there in spirit.

                  Can you make an internet webcam available during the ceremony?

                  Plans are currently underway to have webcams available for our wedding ceremonies. Please contact the wedding coordinator for details.
