Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Ladies,

 

I have a question for the Dreams brides who were married there.

 

Cecilia indicated that the packages are subject to a 5-hour limit (1 hr for ceremony, 1 hour of reception, 3 hours for dinner).

 

Can someone please clarify what that means:

- Are the after ceremony photos subject to a one-hour limit?

- If you don't have a cocktail hour, can that be moved to the reception to make it 4 hours?

- What happens if you need more time? Someone said you had to pay for the drinks and service of $22 per guest for every hour above the limit. Is this true?

- What if you don't want any more drinks and service past the 3-hour dinner but want to hang out and dance, do you still have to pay?

 

Additionally, are there extra charges for table linens? Can you take your own?

 

Sorry, too many questions but your help will be appreciated.

 

Thanks!!

I haven't been married there yet, however, I e-mailed Claudia and asked if we can extend the reception 1 hour...I specifically told her that they can clean up the tables and we can get ut own drinks at the bar, we just wanted to use the space and dance and she told me that it didn't matter, it would be an extra $10 per person for that extra hour.

Does the $10 an hour per person include drinks and service?

Thanks!

They sure do look fluffy! Are there any spa products that come wrapped inside them or are they just towels? It's a great idea to have them for all the ladies in the bridal party so you can use them together when you go to the spa! Do you mind sharing how much they were?

For favours, we are going to give heart-shaped measuring cups that come in a fancy looking box with a tag on it saying 'love beyond measure'! We thought our guests could use them for baking for Christmas since our wedding is in December right before Christmas! They are about $5.00 each. smile72.gif

I'm pretty sure...because she said whether we needed the ervers there or not, it would still be extra.....Why don't you shoot her an e-mail just to be sure. This way you can prit it out and keep it for your records wink.gif

They are pretty fluffy. There are not spa products wrapped in them. They have an elastic in top with a velcrow closer so you can wear them at the spa, when you get out of the shower, etc. I bought 10 of them so I got a couple dollars off each one, but I think they are normally $22. I love them! I think it will make for a cute pic too:)

I think our guests booked at $130 per person, per night absed on double occupancy. It's a per person rate because the resort is all inclusive. I think that's a great price. You get a week at an all inclusive for a little over $900...can't beat it! My wedding is in the beginning of November. I am sure that rates fluctuate for different times of the year, but it can't hurt to ask.

Coco Bongo was 70.00 per person so that was too ridiculous for us--
$70! That is crazy!! Did that include open bar? How much was it to go to Ice? Where did you do the tequilla photo bottle? The last time I went to Cancun, we loved Fat Tuesdays. The drinks were awesome!

hey thanks for the info. I called and they offered me $174 / person / day for january. flying from Canada is pretty pricey so doing the package deal with the flight pretty much is the same, expensive for my guests! oh well- i cant keep stressing about it!

Did you check on Orbitz? I just did a quick search on a package leaving on Jan. 3 and returning Jan. 10 and it's $1,546 for flight and hotel (Dreams). I don't know how close that is to what your guests are already paying.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
