Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if you can bring your own officiant to the wedding? I read that someone did and had their own traditions incorporated into the ceremony. I would love to do this - I welcome any feedback or information that anyone has.

 

Also what does everyone think the etiquette would be if I brought my own - paying for his flight and room or just the room? Please let me know your thought . . .

I would guess if it is a symbolic ceremony then you could bring your own officiant.

 

I think if you brought your own you would need to pay for his room and flight as long as he wasnt turning it into the vacation of a lifetime.

This is probably on here some where but can some one tell me what the $50 day pass fee covers at Dreams? Does it just let them in or does it allow them to eat at the restaurants too? Thanks!!

I never had to pay the fee for any of our outside people BUT it covers everything. Once they are in they are in :) They told us as long as the people just came for the wedding they didn't have to pay. They all stayed past the wedding and drank with us in the lobby. Nobody said anything. Although, there were a few guys that went to the bars after and tried to bring some senoritas back and the security called them out on it.

So has anyone who had their reception on the beach, also rent the Lounge Furniture?? I saw the pic of that set up in this thread (I think pg 117??) and I love it....Depending on my number of guests (& my budget) I would Love to get it. I wanted to know if you had it, do you have pictures? Did you think it was worth it? and How much did it cost?

 

As always..Thanks!!

Hi Everyone!

I just wanted to give a quick update now that we're back. Unfortunately, I knew on the flight home on Sat nite that I was going to get sick - could just feel it in my throat - and I was unfortunately right. Because of that, this will be short.

 

The wedding was wonderful! Weather wasn't the best (had to postpone the wedding 1/2 hour for brief rain shower and it was EXTREMELY windy) but can't control that. Claudia was easy to work with once I got there. I switched my photographer without making prior arrangements and when we sat down, we extended the videographer. The video was AWESOME - I'd recommend extending it instead of the gazebo decor! He came to my room before hand, video'd FI, the ceremony, and most of our pictures. FI spent a good part of yesterday converting it to put on his facebook page. Not sure if you'll be able to see it without being his friend, but here's the link:

Claudia's mom is sick, so she's been very distracted with that. We had to move my initial session a few days (which I was mad about) because she had to go to the hospital (not sure the problem w/ her mom). A day or so after the wedding, we had our appt to finalize the billing and she called me crying saying she had to leave because of her mom. Someone's wedding was going on at that time too so I felt bad for that bride. She stayed through my reception and there were a few times I needed her to find things / do things.

 

Overall, I would also recommend being very organized. I had everything written down and all items labelled in bags (i.e. items for bouquets, sand ceremony, all guestbook items together, etc).

 

I wish I could give more details right now, but I'm going to try to get more sleep. I really don't want to be sick - I'm suppose to be going back to work tomorrow and have SO much stuff to do today.

Laurine - thank you for sharing your video! I'm sorry you are not feeling well. sad.gif I have only been able to view the first 4 minutes of the video(connectivitiy issues I hope) but I can't wait to see the rest!

 

Just a couple of questions - did Dreams do your flowers? They look awesome, were you happy with them? And secondly, what time was your wedding?

 

Thanks again! Get well soon!

Emily

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
