Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

I have a few questions for those of you who have been married here:

 

1) Did you have to send your information to the resort by e-mail before you left (i.e. birth certificate, passport, apostille document?) I noticed they say on their website that the required information must be sent at least a month in advance, but Gaby didn't ask me to e-mail her any info? We are a little over a month away now.

2) How did you tip while at the resort (i.e. wedding coordinator, hairstylist, photographer)? I thought I saw this somewhere on the forum, but can't seem to find it.

3) Do you know if they are any close to having a webcam available at the gazebo? Would be so nice to have for those that aren't able to make it.

 

If someone could help me out, I would really appreciate it!

 

Thanks so much!

99% sure it will be on the tower terrace (outdoor). for ladies who have been married there, do you think the terrace is big enough to accommodate tables for 25-30 guests, plus a large enough dancing area?

i had no idea i had to send the stuff ahead of time! yikes! and does anyone know for sure if i still need an apostille document if i am bringing my original birth certificate with raised seal? my travel agent asked this question for me and got "yes, original birth certificate is ok," but i think claudia may have misunderstood the question (my travel agent wasn't very clear). i recently tried to ask again (in a clearer way), but have gotten no response.

I've asked her recently about docs. I sent her an email saying this is what i have is this right - she replied yes

 

I asked if she needed them before hand and she didn't answer lol Therefore I'm not sending them she can have them when we get there.

 

As for apostile on your birth cert I have to have one not sure about US

3) Last information I remember reading is that the wed cam was still not available.

I can not believe they are canning yet another WC. This will be my third since I started this process. Maybe they should try having more than 2 people to run the show and then maybe... these poor women will not be overworked. I feel like emailing someone at Dreams and letting them how I feel about their dumb decisions. I am so pissed right now mad2.gif.

Im having most of my guests stay at Dreams but my parents and his parents have decided to stay at El Presidente which is also an all inclusive but cheaper.

 

How strict is the hotel with guests who do not stay there?

    • 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!
