Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

I just read a trip advisor review that said the drive from the airport to the resort is an hour and half long. Is this true? I want to prepare our guests. I thought it was closer then that.

I was reading on someone else's thread that they had to put a major credit card number at the front desk and they took out 250 to hold in case of charges incurred during the stay. Do they do that at Dreams? Just wondering so I can make sure my guests are aware to have extra money on their cards.

They can bog off if they try that with me or any of my guests because that is ripe for credit card fraud - if they ask say you don't have one! God everyone is paying enough to stay there without them starting that game

I know I have had hotels do this before. Usually the expensive ones. So, it wouldnt surprise me and it is refunded to your credit card at check out.

it's no more than a half an hour to the resort from the airport. Maybe the persons review you read was talking about dreams tulum? that would be about an hour and a half away.

You do have to give a card, with us they wanted to put a hold on as much as we owed for the wedding, but I brought travelers checks to pay for everything, so they ended up putting a hold on $200, I think. But I don't know if they did that with our guests, I think it might have just been us.

I don't really think its necessary for guests because it is all inclusive, so you really don't spend much money that you would have to charge it to your room.

yes when we went for our site visit it took us a half hour to get to dreams but we made 2 stops at other hotels before us and as for the credit card they did not take anything on ours at that time not but thats just our experience!

I was just going over my list of the documentation we need to get married in Mexico and I think I know the answer to this but I just wanted to double check with you guys...

 

"What are the requirements to get a marriage license in Mexico?

 

Valid passport

Tourist Cards (blue sheets that you receive at the airport)

Apostille certified birth certificates for Bride & Groom

If applicable, final Record of Divorce

If applicable, Death Certificate

Health certificate and blood test provided by a Mexican Official*

Bride & Groom must arrive four business days prior to the ceremony! (Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays do not count). "

 

So here's my question...what is an Apostille certified birth certificate? I have a copy of my birth certificate...do I need to get it notarized or something?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
