Sunitam--did your photographer stay in the hotel? I'll have to speak to Claudia, but I'm nervous. How much was the fee?
hi, I hired the same photographer as Kat81 from the US. He may or may not stay at Dreams but Im not being charged for a guest pass either way. I was told by Gaby that any guest of mine who is not staying at dreams doesnt have to pay for a day pass as long as they come around an hour before the ceremony so I told Cecilia that when she tried to tell me outside photographers require a pass. Like Kat said, they are a guest at your wedding and you are paying almost 50 for each extra guest for their dinner so dont pay anymore!

You can pay the wedding package the day when you check-out. We paid by credit card, but the card company charged us $68 for currency exchange service fee. doh.gif You can pay cash in USD or pesos, they accept both, and I think they take traveler's check as well.

I don't even think there is a view of the ocean from there and isn't that the whole reason we do destination weddings in Cancun? I feel I am being moved around due to a large wedding that is more important but I don't have that confirmed. I would be so grateful if anyone could give me pros and cons of having my reception in the spa terrace or the garden as I think these may be my only two options. I just feel the garden is so out in the open it wouldn't feel private at all and weird dancing away with so many onlookers? Or, does anyone know any other locations that I could look into that have an ocean view? By the way, we booked Dreams 17 months in advance. I am feeling a bit down...any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hey hun, I found that review that I wanted you to see:

I don't know if anyone has been on the Dreams Cancun website lately, but they are currently offering two promotions. Both offers include free stays - 1) every 12th person stays free 2) one complimentary room for every 15 rooms booked . I am a little upset that they don't offer this to brides based on number of people booked. My guests alone are bringing more than $50k to the resort the week of the wedding, not to mention the additional revenue from our wedding. I am definitely going to contact the resort and fight for this. Why shouldn't the bride and groom get a little extra for bringing all this business that Dreams normally wouldn't get? Most resorts offer a free room to the bride and groom with a minimum number of guests booked. What is $3k to them when they are getting over $60k? Just thought I would let everyone know in case you want to use it as a bartering tool.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
