Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the responses.

 

So, I've got the cake prices and Susan said she'll email me the flower prices.

 

On another note, I'd like to share our engagement video to my fellow brides whose helped me out tremendously.

 

My fiance, Sean, loves to take videos of our vacations and makes mini-movies. During our Eurotrip, he filmed our vacation and he made sure his camera was ready when he proposed in Paris on our 11.5 years anniversary.

 

Enjoy!!!

Rose-

What a great movie!!! I wish we had our proposal on video...it's all such a blur. I think that's so neat that your FI makes mini-movies of your travels. What a great reminder of the places you've been. He did an awesome job of putting this video together...I love that he edited it so that the crescendo of the music is timed perfectly with the proposal. Thanks so much for sharing!

Hey ladies-

I need some help! I'm looking for the latest pics of the reception locations. I think someone posted some pics that Claudia sent them not so long ago. I remember a couple of shots of the beach area.

Reason I'm asking... I was 100% set on having the reception using the Tower Lobby/Terrace area. Now that we have about 100 people attending, this is a problem. We'd probably be too tight at the terrace, and there would be no room for a dance floor.

The alternatives seem to be a meeting room (which I REALLY don't want to do), or the beach (which I really didn't want to do either...but am a little bit more open to). I'm just worried about the wind, sand, and food... doesn't mix well. And dancing in the sand? Don't know how well that's going to work.

Hmm, what do you think?

Susan -

Here is a really awesome picture of a Beach wedding that Daniella sent me last week. I can't for the life of me figure out how to post a picture so I had to put it in an attachment. Seeing this picture totally made me want to have a beach wedding. Is the garden not an option for you anymore either due to the size?

Jenn-

Thank you! That was the picture I was looking for. Doesn't it look gorgeous?!?! I am just worried about the wind. When I looked at all those reception pictures that you posted form Michael Maurus...it looked super windy. I guess it's just a gamble. I think the garden area is out because of our numbers, but I almost think that would be worse for wind because the garden area is up higher along the cliffs. I don't know what to do...I guess I have a little time to think it over. I did e-mail our DJ service for their opinion as well as the photographer. Both have experience at Dreams and I feel will give their unbiased opinions. I'll let you know.

Thanks!

Oh yeah, the other potential downfall I was thinking about with the beach is the fact that there isn't a bar right there like there is at the Terrace.

I am concerned with the wind too. Daniella did tell me that we can change the location 3-5 hours before the reception if the weather isn't looking good. I'm not sure if this applies to wind too or just rain. She also told me that they can put a dance floor on the beach so guests wouldn't have to dance in the sand although they'd still have to walk on it.

 

I'm still undecided at this point too but I obviously have a year to mull it over. I wish I could just decide when I get there since we will be there 5 days before. Its so hard to decide by looking at pictures alone although all the 1st hand accounts definitely help!

OK... so I'm not sure what made me stop and take a peek in this discussion, but WOW, I just looked at that beach set up... and DANG! That's amazing! I LOVE IT!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
