Why do you consider Dreams Cancun to be the 'safer' choice?? Just curious.
How do prices for Dreams, Grand XCaret, Grand Palladium and Moons compare??
I feel like I'm making progress!!! But maybe it's an illusion.
Maybe safer was not the best word. more Self Reassuring is probably a better term. The reason it that there is more information and more reviews and more brides out there that say Dreams Cancun is a wonderful place to get married. That doesn't mean that the OGX isn't though. Dreams resorts in general just from this forum alone have such a great reputation. The good news is that I haven't read a BAD review on weddings at the OGX I just haven't read more than a handful of good reviews either.
As far as prices go, don't quote me on any of this, I haven't looked into the pricing since I was trying to decide on a resort which was a couple months ago. I'm pretty sure OGX is the least expensive out of the four resorts you mentioned than probably Dreams and than the other two. BUT you also have to look at the wedding packages that each resort offers because Dreams offers a free wedding as long as you book one room for 6 or 7 nights I think, whereas OGX offers a free wedding as long as you book 10 higher end rooms for at least 4 nights I believe. Counting on at least 10 of our guests booking more expensive rooms for at least 4 nights would be really hard for us, so really even though Dreams per room per night might be more expensive at the end of the day with a free wedding it could end up being less expensive if that makes sense. If I were looking into a wedding in Cancun than I would seriously consider Dreams as my top contender. We really feel like the Riviera Maya area is more out style though. And from what I have read about the OGX, the resort is amazing with a river running through the lobby and a real green lush landscape with a variety of different tropical animals roaming around! To me this sounds right up our alley, it really all depends on your own personal style.
Hope the rambling helped a little
