paloma bonita is right outside of dreams, and is NOT included as part of the AI. from what i've heard the food and service are great, but pricey.

I have a question...i've looked through the blog but i may have missed this, so i'm sorry if i'm repeating something that has already been discussed...

 

Do the packages at Dreams Cancun include a legal wedding ceremony or is it just a symbolic ceremony? And do they help you with getting the blood tests/chest xrays that you have to have to get married in Mexico?

 

Thanks!

You can do a legal ceremony with the packages, but the fees for blood tests/translations/legalizations are not included in those package prices. Those are extra and total about $650-$700. The blood tests have to be done in Mexico, and will be done by a doctor they provide who comes to you at the resort (in fact I believe the blood test is done in your room at 8am the morning after you arrive?). You don't have to go anywhere off property in Mexico for any of the legal arrangements ... they arrange everything for you.

Hey Ladies!

 

Thought I'd just post answers to some of your questions.

 

When I wanted to substitute something for the photographer, what I did was figure out what I needed that wasn't included in the package and then I put a list together of what I thought was comparable and emailed her.

 

So I think I asked for a larger cake, chair bows, & gazebo decor? If I remember correctly. She let me have the gazebo decor and the larger cake, but no chair bows. I don't know if it was really an even trade, but at least I got the additional things I needed without paying extra for them.

 

And as someone mentioned, there is no day pass fee for claudia rodriguez or her associates.

 

Oh, and the video, I really didn't care about having a video at all, and only took it because it came with the package, but honestly the video was so much better than I ever anticipated. He did a great job with it, I believe it is claudia rodriguez's husband that does the videos at dreams, Michael Cantrell (I think that's his name, I'm just going off of memory right now!)

 

I know I had more I wanted to say, but I think I'll have to go back and look at the posts, feel free to let me know if anyone has any questions!

i think the reason she won't offer other items as trade for not using juan navarro for photography is that many of those other items are from outside vendors. maybe the only things she can "trade" are those things that come from the resort itself? at least that's the only thing that makes sense to me at all!

 

this is what i'm sending her:

 

Claudia,

 

I appreciate your fast reply.

 

With all due respect, "gazebo drapery only" is not comparable in price to Juan Navarro's photography, and therefore is not an acceptable or fair credit. If we chose not to use Juan Navarro, we should in exchange be receiving a credit valued at $600 (the cost of his package). What else (besides gazebo drapery) can possibly be traded if we do not want to use Juan Navarro for photography? For instance, could we trade for "gazebo drapery AND a longer upgraded video package" instead?

 

i'll let you ladies know the outcome!

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
