As far as answering your question about the rooms...if you are looking to keep it on the cheaper yet luxurious end, the "Ocean Front" room in the Pyramid building has a great view. Everyone has their own taste when it comes to what they like to view when they are in their room. The Club Tower Ocean Front room, I am guessing, is even better, but obviously costs a little more.
Lots of sun would probably mean their summer time which is around March-May. June is the start of rainy season and while we were there, it did rain during the day for a few hours and some nights.

Most of our guests opted for the cheapest room, the garden view. However, many of them got upgraded to Ocean Front or the Tower rooms. One of them, who got 2 rooms, got upgraded to a Junior Jacuzzi Suite. That room was awesome! We got upgraded to a Honeymoon Suite.

It's really up to you if you want to take your chances.

yikes. How often did it rain while you were there? Was it an isssue for you> Did you see any weddings get rained on? (my worst fear)

I took a June date becuase it was all they had left (first choice was May) - and the rain is my biggest concern.

I guess beginnng of June is better than towards the end like ours. We got lucky! The day after our wedding, it rained hard in the evening. Two days later, it rained all day. The next day it was sunny again.

There was a wedding with a party of about 20 people who had their ceremony in the Gazebo prior to the rain and had their reception indoor in the Tower Lobby. I guess it was not as bad since there's room to move around inside. Had they had a bigger party where people need air to breath (it's pretty hot inside), it would have been very uncomfortable.

For those who have visited Dreams Cancun, what size cups did they serve? I've heard from some that they are getting stadium cups customized because the cups the resort uses are dixie cup size (or just about), and found a large cup very helpful. However, others have said their resorts had large cups and guests didn't use them.

 

Do you think stadium cups would be useful for the guests?

I asked this question a few months back and someone told me that the cups are big but you usually get a bottle.

Can anyone tell me exactly how far in advance I should submit my wedding request form? I am on a funky work schedule and actually have to "bid" for my vacation time. It goes in order of senority, and I cant do that till January 2009. Does Dreams book their weddings really fast? How does 8 months sound? Is that far enough in advance?

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
