    Syl's Dreams Cancun Review

    Wow! Beautiful pictures! You are one stylist bride. You looked awesome in your dress! Haven't been in this site for a awhile. It sure brings back great memories!! We're trying to convince our friends to have a destination wedding so we can re-live those memories. CONGRATS!!!!
  2. Here is one video from the wedding. My husband's sister sang during the ceremony when the veil and cord were being removed. There are some pro photos in the mix and you can see how the gazebo area was layed out. Also, you will notice that it is windy. According to the photographer and videographer, it actually was not that windy and it usually is windier. Make sure to watch in HD to see a clearer video and photos.

  3. Gosh, I haven't logged on in awhile. Hopefully, my response is not too late. I rented the organza chair bows from Dreams. If you can spare the $, just rent it since they will set it up for you, both in the ceremony and reception area. What was disappointing was that as soon as the ceremony ended, Claudia quickly took the chair bows out to move them to the reception. I did not get a chance to take photos with them on after the ceremony. Also, not sure if they would charge for set up fees anyway if you do not rent from them. Quote: Originally Posted by dc22173 Loved the pictures!! Everything came out so beautiful Did you rent the chair bows from them? I thought for some reason they only had satin bows for rent. These look like organza or some other material. I am still debating if I am just going to make my own.

  5. We just came back from Australia and it was an awesome place! I totally would recommend it for an active honeymoon. We loved Hamilton Island and Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary! The Great Barrier Reef is a scuba divers dream. Whitehaven beach was so pristine. Zorbing was a fun experience. Australia is a great place to explore and can't wait to go back. Thanks for your feedback.
  6. Kat, I'm sorry to hear that. I know the memories is more important than the money. Congrats and glad to hear the rest went well!

Do you have any good info on how long flight is and any good tips for airlines that fly from mexico out there We're flying from New Jersey using Qantas airlines. They are definitely the cheapest airlines for us since we are visiting 3 cities. We bought it from their website. I'm not looking forward to the flight since it's over a day. We leave at 6PM and arrive 2 days later at 7AM (factors in the time difference). That's exhausting

How was the weather in Sydney? Should I pack sweaters/jeans? Did you go to featherdal park on your own or with a tour? How much is the tour of the Opera House? We're staying at the city center (Hyde Park area) and I'm unsure if I should get a CityPass. I think many attractons are nearby/walking distance. What did you guys do for transportation? I'm super excited now that it's just a week away...

I have zorbed, but in the ones that strap you in. It is a lot of fun, but if you're queasy, it might get messy! Keep in mind, Brisbane is a HUGE city, landwise, but there is public transport everywhere. I haven't been to the Blue Mountains, but I have heard they're pretty impressive! HOWEVER - what we in Australia deem impressive as far as mountains go, my Canadian fiance calls "hills". I've been checking the weather and it'll be in the 70's F. Do you think the water will be warm enough to swim in? When you lived in Brisbane, did you go swimming in August? I'm looking forward to snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef, but I'm a little worried the water would be too cold. I would be extremely disappointed if it is.

I traded the photos and video for b-maid's flowers and gazebo decoration.

How much did you guys pay for an additional one? I requested for a 2 layer cake. It was $5 per person above the 20 pp that the Ultimate Package includes. I got the strawberry cake (vanilla cake) and I thought it was pretty good. Not bad at all, but definitely not the best. Remember to request to have the cake served to everyone and not just those who are sitting down. We had so much leftover cake since they did not serve anyone who weren't sitting on their table. Of course, most people are dancing and hanging outside since it was too hot on the lobby.

Samantha, the petals and hurricane glass with sand was done entirely by them, BUT I did not ask them for it. If you specifically ask for it, they will charge you. I had the expectation that only my center pieces I brought would be the only thing on the table, so it was a nice surprise that they included the petals and glass without me having to pay.
  13. Value of the Eternity honeymoon package cannot be redeemed as a discount. It is more of a complementary for spending more mula on higher category rooms. The Dreams honeymoon and anniversary package is just champagne and fruits. The champagne breakfast in bed is BS since the resort offers 24 hours room service so you can order breakfast at anytime. Special turn down service is another BS since the maids clean your room daily and prepares your bed daily for all rooms (I've asked all my guests who didn't have the honeymoon package). The Eternity package is great since you get the Spa treatments and private dinner as well as the petit fours each evening. Honestly, a few of our guests said it was their anniversary upon check in and when they went into their room, they got the Dreams honeymoon stuff. I don't think they're enforcing the paperwork on this one.

As far as a honeymoon goes, Hamilton Island is fantastic, and so is Airlie Beach (if you're really liking wanting to spend time on the Great Barrier Reef). There are some gorgeous hotels on the Gold Coast near Brisbane too, but the Gold Coast is a huge tourist destination so it is a little busy. Cool! We're spending a majority of our time in Sydney and Hamilton Island. We'll be in Brisbane for 2 days since we fly back to the US from that airport. Have you gone Zorbing? My husband really wants to try that. Also, where is the best place to cuddle a koala and see kangaroos? Have you been to Blue Mountain (nearby Sydney)? Is that worth seeing? Thanks.
  15. We're honeymooning in Australia in late August for 2 weeks. Any suggestions on activities, must see places, restaurants etc.?
