I know this is a convirsation I have brought up before in a thread I started but I don't seem to have got very far with it. I know most of you are going to go with the flow and probably move on to one of the bars after your 3 hours of reception are up but I was just wondering how the others that have already got married there got round this music / time issue ?? Did they pay the extra or did they just end up staying with no extra cost ? Any thoughts ?.....
We got married at Dreams last year (Nov) and had the reception in the Lobby Tower. We stayed until the bar ran fresh out of Tequila! :) LOL and then they went and got us more Tequila from another bar until that ran out and so on! The DJ had stayed past their time and so did the bar staff. No one was rushing us away nor were we asked to pay more to stay. We just kept partying until we could party no more :) The only thing was they asked us to make the music lower around 10:30 or so. I think it also helped that one of my BMs was running around and making everyone including the WC, DJ, waiters, bartenders drink Tequila shots with her. She managed to get EVERYONE around drunk! :) LOL I think if you're laid back and don't stress about it, everything will work itself out.

Ladies, I told Gaby less than a month ago we'd be using Cecilia Dumas and she said okay. I also said I wanted to switch the photography for the videographer and she said okay (we're getting the dreams of love package). THEY DO ALLOW OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS!! I have no idea why Claudia would still be saying that. I will forward anyone my email of Gaby saying okay if they need some proof, send me your email address.

"Dear Crystal:

 

The external photo vendors are:

 

Juan Navarro

Juanhphotos

 

Claudia Rodriguez

Claudia Rodriguez, Photographer, Cancun & Riviera Maya

 

Thank you"

 

So I write back again and again, to only get the EXACT same response. Highly frustrating! I don't want to use THEIR PHOTOGRAPHER. I am not impressed by his work what so ever. Claudia Rodriguez is good (and expensive), but only one of her minions, Alberto, is available on my wedding day. I'm not sure if Dreams has changed their photography policy, or what. I can't seem to get a straight answer from Claudia (the WC) at all...heck, if I get a response from her at all I'm lucky! Anyway, I refuse to use their photographer. My wedding is in two months and when I get down there, I will expect to use Cecilia Dumas, and I DARE them to give me any crap about it cheesy.gif I've spent months trying to resolve this issue and have had no success.

Because they obviously don't speak to each other lol I'd just be cautious and have your email with you when you go. I'm sure there won't be a problem but always good to ire on the side of caution as Claudia is supposed to be the boss. Remember she told me we got the photographer for 40 mins it was actually 90 lol

That sound fantastic !! Just waht we would like, Did you hire Dreams equipment by the hour along with their DJ or was the DJ you used hired separatly ? Gaby the new wedding co-ordinator has actually told me that when our "time is up " the waiters will start clearing away ?? I'm not too fussed about having a DJ just something to plug our IPOD in. I suppose I will have to try and just chill a bit after all its still so far away LOL, Thanks for the advice !

We hired a DJ that I think (I honestly can't remember) was recommended by the hotel. I have the contract at home and can look up the name of the company if you're interested. I thought they were pretty good. The DJ came and met with us a day or so before to decide on the type of music we want. My husband is a DJ and brought his CDs down to Cancun with us and got to spin a little during the wedding. That was pretty cool! and to answer your other question, they did start to clear the tables but, not in a "it's time for you to leave" kind'a way. Honestly, by that time, we were having too much fun to care about food anyway!

    • 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.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
