Cecilia is my wedding coordinator. She also told me that I would not get a sound technician with the sound system and that someone in my party had to operate it. I am not sure what we are going to do though. Since I am havign my reception on the beach, it may be worth it to spring for the couple hundred extra dollars since the DJ provides lighting. I am sure that Dreams will end up charging me an arm and a leg for that. How many people are you having? So far, we are up to 48 and counting.

Mc, did you ask her for the sound technician for ceremony or reception? I got photographer traded for sound at my ceremony, it would be suck if they don't provide technician and one of my guest need to operate that thing!!

Did you not get an email from anyone about thathuh.gif Yes Gaby no longer works for Dreams. I am getting the impression that she got fired but I dont know that for a fact. Cecilia is taking her place as the other WC besides Claudia. She used to work at the front desk at Dreams. she should have sent you an email introducing herself. Im not getting married until jan 2010 but got an email from her 3 weeks ago. She has much better english than Gaby, her responses are SUPER fast- usually always the same day! communicating with her is much better. only thing is- she seems way more strict with allowing you to change things and negotiate. i had to really get mean and pushy to get a few things that i had already talked to gaby about. definitely keep all your old emails from gaby as you may need them if she had given you any deals or trades. you should email cecilia at gabys old email address

hey! i just sent out my invitations this weekend actually, so I have NO idea how many ppl are coming! everyone says they are, but its early in the game for me- weddings not until january so not sure how many ppl we will have. thats awesome that you have so many!

with the sound technician thing- I had asked Gaby about this months and months ago and she said yes, the sound system rental comes with a cd player, technician, speakers and microphone. i showed that email to cecilia and demanded that she give me one b/c she cant change things i had already negotiated. after i showed her the email i had from gaby, she said yes i would get one. i was maaad when she tried to take that away! i am not paying 180 dollars per hour to have one of my guests play music! especially when we are giving the resort our business. i would fight for it, they are getting so stingy and greedy for money. they want everyone to hire a dj which sounds pretty pricey to me!

Ok ladies, I got a short response from Claudia regarding the sound system but I have yet to get my other response on my 10 questions..

 

Will you be providing a sound tech. to work the music for the ceremony?

 

Our technician will operate the sound system equipment,you need to bring a cd or an ipod with your special songs

I heard from DJ Mannia today. This is what they said:

"We are still available for July 12th , to book our services it has to be
done through your wedding coordinator from Dreams Cancun"

Can anyone give any feedback on the photos that come with the wedding package? We are trying to find out what we get with the 36 full color professional photos? Also what is the honeypackage on the wedding contract? May 2nd is getting closer and closer.

I guess my question wasn't specific enough. I didn't even think about the ceremony! That would definitely stink if someone attending the wedding had to run it for that.

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
