Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Destination---I am having the same issues. My wedding is a 6:00 and I was thinking that was too late. There was a post on this site somewhere that said sun sets at 6:30 ish. I am not sure if it was a June or October wedding though and might be different with the time change. Also I am looking for a good TA if you could share that with us.

Lucy,

 

Thanks for that info and the pics of your reception on the beach. I was wondering if it gets really dark on the beach for the reception with just the lights under the table and the tiki torches (did you have the tiki torches)? It appears that you had some extra lights - were those provided by the DJ - or were those an extra charge. Also where is the closest bathroom for guests to use - Is it Seaside Grill or the Tower lobby?

 

Do you know how much extra the dance floor with the lights were? Thanks for all your help - can't wait to see your professional pics!

Yes it got pretty dark but because of the DJs (Carlos from Mannia Audio) lights and the dance floor plus the lights under the table it was perfect. The closest bathroom was in the lobby of the Tower. The illuminated dance floor was $350. I dont know if the price is the same but I bet it is pretty close. The tiki torches are a ficture around the resort, they are lighted every night by a guy who blows a konch shell and has a huge flame with him, yikes so those are always there. Hope this helps!! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hello Everyone,

brand new at this and just finished reading through all the posts and finding the info very helpful. It makes you feel a lot better knowing that tons of other brides are out there wondering the same thing. I was hoping someone could help me out with some things

1. did you all bring your own give aways??

2. I'm having my reception on the beach as well, was it windy at night?? I'm getting married in April 09

3. How was the cake?? I'm getting the ultimate package and it comes with a cake, does anyone have any pics.

4. Any suggestions on how to cut cost by bringing my own decorations or is it not worth it.

5. Was it worth an extra 2000 to bring in Claudia R. for pictureshuh.gifhuh.gif

6. did your grooms where a tux or a suite?? did they complain about the heathuh.gif

 

Sorry I know its a ton of questions really Appreciate it :)

3. How was the cake?? I'm getting the ultimate package and it comes with a cake, does anyone have any pics.I really liked the cake. I thought it was really good

1. did you all bring your own give aways?? We too brought our own OOT bags with goodies in them
2. I'm having my reception on the beach as well, was it windy at night?? I'm getting married in April 09 Yes windy but the beauty of the location is worth it to me
3. How was the cake?? I'm getting the ultimate package and it comes with a cake, does anyone have any pics. Cake was good, fed a lot more then it said it would. I had a very simple one that was included with just some flowers on top
4. Any suggestions on how to cut cost by bringing my own decorations or is it not worth it. We didnt do gazebo decorations, felt it was too expensive for such a short amount of time but dont need any other decorations #1 not worth the hassel and #2 it is gorgeous there as is!
5. Was it worth an extra 2000 to bring in Claudia R. for pictureshuh.gifhuh.gif YES YES YES YES!!!! Havent gotten my pics yet but loved the girls and glad we had them for 3 hours
6. did your grooms where a tux or a suite?? did they complain about the heathuh.gif My DH wore linen pants and a Tommy Bahama shirt and he was VERY appreciative

Sorry I know its a ton of questions really Appreciate it :)

Hope this helps!

1. did you all bring your own give aways?? Yes, we brought fans and bubbles, but instead of doing a favor we hired a cigar roller

2. I'm having my reception on the beach as well, was it windy at night?? I'm getting married in April 09

from what I understand it is always windy. Im not sure if my day was more windy than other ,but my bridesmaids dresses flew over their head, if thats any idication.

3. How was the cake?? I'm getting the ultimate package and it comes with a cake, does anyone have any pics.

I had the tress leches cake and everyone loved it.

4. Any suggestions on how to cut cost by bringing my own decorations or is it not worth it.

I did not bring my own decorations. I used theirs, and I think it was the ones that came with the package. I personally would not spend a bunch of money to bring stuff. The atmosphere is enough.

5. Was it worth an extra 2000 to bring in Claudia R. for pictures

I used Dreams photo guy, Juan... whats his name. His photos were good, although I dont know that I would feel the same had I not had an amazing TTD shoot with someone else.

6. did your grooms where a tux or a suite?? did they complain about the heat

My men wore slacks and nice white shirts and flip flops. THey were pretty happy. I on the other hand was SO hot that after me and DH were done taking pictures I had to go up to my room and take of my dress for a few minutes

Sorry I know its a ton of questions really Appreciate it :)

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
