Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

that is also a very good point i guess we could also put them on the guest list and just pay another 50$ for them to get a dinner at this point another 50$ is not going to kill us specially so they dont miss a great moment and if they leave knowing my luck they will miss something priceless, and kat i cant remember did you book kristie as well i cant stop looking at morgans pics!

marrying in black at 1pm in mexicohuh.gif hot hot hot ... it's probably better that you change to 4pm! :)
Ok so my response from Claudia is this:-

"We offer other available times not to interfere with your ceremony. The maximum weddings we confirm in a day is 3 but only if they don't have any reception just ceremony, or 2 small weddings with reception but one of them in the morning and the other one in the afternoon"

So I think you can safely say there will be definitely more than one wedding per day and probs at a minimum 2. However if you are taking lots of guests and spends huge $$ you'll probs get one lol

She's changed the time for me but did try and get me to go for 6pm I've respectfully declined lol

that said, i don't think you're going to find many resorts that will commit to one wedding per day.

I hope you haven't paid yet because I think you are going to be upset that its not just going to be your wedding on that day.

I offered Claudia R and team to stay and eat dinner, they politely refused.

 

I am amazed to hear of all the weddings they are having in one day.

Mine was in Feb and we were the only one that day and I think there was one 2 days after mine, but I was in Chitchen Itza, so I missed it.

I think part of the reason there are so many weddings on one day is the time of year that all of you ladies have chosen. You've all picked May and I know of at least 3 or 4 other girls that are new to the forum that all want May too. So as you can imagine the dates book up quick.

 

When I was married there it was in October, I saw a few other weddings during the week, but not more than one a day, I don't even think there was one everyday.

 

So for future brides it's definitely worth keeping in mind that if you choose a busy time of year, that you should expect that there may be another wedding the same day as yours.

To be truthful as long as it doesn't interfere with mine I don't really care but I do think they should stop advertising that they only do one a day if they don't. Or maybe even put a caveat on advising if its a busy time of year it could be up to 3

You also see me constantly moving my hair out of my face, when I couldn't stand it anymore.

On the beach for pictures, the wind came at an angle so the my veil was tucked and Claudia R had to finally loan me a hair clip to be able to continue with taking pictures.
That's a bummer but I agree that it didn't shine through in your pictures, they are very pretty. I'm worried about my hair and all but I am more worried about the wind on my eyes. I have super sensitive eyes and I worry they will water a ton. I'll have to bring my make-up crew on the shoot with me, also known as my sister!

No I didn't book her. Morgans pictures are just amazing though. I can't wait to see yours!!!
As for the photographer, this might sound silly but you could always pack them a meal too. Some muffins and a sandwich or something. You could order it from room service then have someone bring it with them. That would save you fifty buck AND it would be easy stuff for them to eat in between pictures.

Hey girls I started a thread for the newsletter that I stole from Dawn and changed up a bit. Dawn basically did all the tough work though. Anyway, I thought I would share so you girls could use the template if you want. Dawn has one too she might share with you. I am going to change it up a bit but here is what I have so far.

Hey ladies -

At our reception we provided dinner for Claudia R, her assistant and the videographer (the same choices my guests had). We also offered the DJ a meal, but he declined. Just so you all know, Dreams does offer a reduced price meal for your vendors and they will set up a small table at the reception site that is tucked away in a corner or something. You just have to tell Claudia (wc) that you want a table for vendors. We had our reception in the spa area and they put a table into the back corner for Claudia and her team. That way they could eat comfortably, not eat with our guests, but still get some good pictures (I saw Claudia take some from the table during dinner).

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
