Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

If you've been married at Dreams Cancun, or can provide help, I (and I'm sure many others) have some questions that I hoping you can answer!!

 

I'd like to hear some feedback on the Photography and Video services offered by the resort? Is it a resort photographer or do they contract an outside company? What's included...hours of service, digital/film, all pics on CD, etc.?

We signed up for a package that included photography/video but now I'm thinking about hiring an outside company to be safe.

 

How was the hair/makeup service?

 

How long did all the legal business take...blood tests, etc.?

 

About how long is the Civil Ceremony?

 

How was the Judge? Professional, easy to understand in English, etc?

 

Did anyone sign up for the stereo/speaker system for the ceremony (not the reception)? It seemed really expensive ($200) and I was wondering if it's worth it.

 

How is the Terrace for the reception? Good location?

 

Is there an option to have a bond fire on the beach with tiki torches, etc?

 

How are the Club Jacuzzi Jr. Suites? Good views of the ocean?

 

Any other tips or suggestions you can think of?

 

Thanks!!! :) popcorn.gif

Hi! I am getting married there in November. I don't have the answers to all your questions. I do know that they do not allow bonfires at the beach. It is great that there are more of us Dreams Brides on this website now. We can exchange info!

Hi! I just spoke with Claudia on the phone. For reception the speaker, DJ, microphone, whole set up is $280.00/hr. I clarified with her if this will include speakers and she said yes. For ceremony, if you want speaker and microphone it is $180.00 for the whole ceremony. She said she will send me pictures of the hair and make-up and I will post them.

Thanks for the info Jessica. Have you seen any prices on the bond fire? I wonder if its private or if anyone from the resort could come over.

No, they will not allow bonfires on the beach. I think very few resorts will allow bonfires. Fire restrictions they said. Somewhere in Cancun there was a fire last year (I was told) due to bonfires. And I think it would also require special permits.

Hang, did claudia tell you that they use cancun studios for the photography?

 

I had asked if the photographer had a website, but she never said, and she didn't give me a name.

 

I did contact cancun studios for prices a few weeks ago, but they didn't mention that they are the photographer there.

 

I was just curious, sometimes it so hard to get an answer on things!

 

Thanks for posting that info!

I hope there will be married ones on here soon so we can hear first hand experiences.

Let's be sure to exchange info....I haven't received info or pics on cakes or hairstyles....

however, I do have bouquets 1 & 2, centerpieces, site visit shots of gazebo and terrace, photo & video packages, ceremony vows (religious/spiritual ceremony), sample photos from photographer, & menus...

 

If you are missing any of those, let me know...I don't know how to post them here...maybe ill figure that out soon :)

    • Hello!! My fiancé and I are planning on a destination wedding and we are wondering if there are any recommendations for a travel agency to use. I’ve emailed some I found online, but find it tough just communicating through email before we decide where to book. After we book, obviously email is convenient! We are in the Niagara Falls On area and would love to sit and meet with someone but don’t know where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you  
    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
