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 purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
