Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

I have a question for past brides who have used the mariachi trio for their cocktail hour or reception. I'm not having the cocktail hour but I was thinking about keeping the trio for my reception on the beach during dinner. Do you think the guests (about 30-40 of them) will be able to hear the mariachi trio play? If I don't use them, Cecilia said she could only give me 2 hours of the sound system instead and I'm not totally sold on that deal.

 

Thanks!!

 

Congrats to all the Dreams brides on this forum!

hey thanks for the feedback! and congrats again- cant wait to read your review!!!

question- if you do the shutterbook guest book and have pictures, is there room on those pages to write messages as well? or would u recommend having blank pages after the picture pages?

thanks again!

I think people would be able to hear them just fine. We had them play while we were taking pictures, and then moved them over to our cocktail hour. But I remember being able to hear them just fine while taking pictures. It was nice backround music.

If there is anyone else out there that wants photos of certain spots just let me know, id be happy to help in any way i can! (leaving for site visit on 9/23)
Thnaks, I did finally get an answer form Juan and he said that it would be $250 for each extra hour that we wanted him without upgrading the package. That being siad he also said that for anymore information on packages I had to speak to the wedding coordinator and not him.

For you ladies that did use him for you pictures and didn't upgrade from the package, did you find that you had enough time for the ceremony and to get all of your pictures taken afterwards or did you feel rushed?? I cant decide if i want to pay an extra $250 for an extra hour or not, i guess its more pictures to choose from in the end. I dont really care if i get pictures of the reception as long as i am not rushed through the pictures after the ceremony.

Does anyone know if he offers trash the dress shoots the following day, and if so what the price would be? Or would it be better to hire outside for the TTD?

Thx.

I used Juan, & I was told that we had him for 90 min...half hour for ceremony and one hour for After...So when he asked me where I wanted to take the pics with my husband, on the beach or all the way over by the light house, I said, right here on the beach, beacuse I didn't want to eat up any time getting to the light house & etc. I didn't know how strict he was with the time.

Well I shouldn't have worried, because first we took pictures at the Gazebo area with the parents and guests, then just the bridal party moved over to the beach, then he told me and My husband to come on and we followed him, his assistant and the videographer to the Lighthouse...We were there for a WHILE.

We def had him a total of 2 or more hours including the ceremony, so I wouldn't worry too much. Unless you have this long list of pics you HAVE to have, You will be ok.

Here is one thing that I wish he would have done but didn't and I am just realizing this now.

We didn't do a traditional picture. Just one of me and DH standing next to each other smiling at the camera. Everything was artsy shots and now I need to find my one main pic & I am having trouble :-(

Don't get me wrong I LOVE my pics, but I wish I had that one traditional Wedding Photo among my awesome one's, so keep that in mind if that is something you want too :)

 

My opinion is, don't worry too much about your time. He doesn't rush you at all. If anything I just wanted to get the Wedding started..LOL I felt like we were out there forever! :) BUt well worth it.

 

Good Luck

Does anyone else have problems with Claudia not answering emails? I think she ignored my friend request on facebook too! I just re-requested her. I've chilled with my emails, but once every few months when I have a question or something, I expect a reassuring email back. I really don't know what to do. She makes me feel so uncomfortable I feel like I'm gna have the wedding from hell. In her last email to me she goes "tenative ceremony for the same day.." so I tell her well my contract says my wedding is from 5-11, I don't want any one interfering with it-- no reply! Goddammit!

I'm wondering if anyone knows who I have to get in touch with for some info on Dreams, Cancun. I've just decided this is where i would like to have my wedding next October, but I don't know what my next step is. I would prefer to have more info (prices of rooms, Cost for 30+ guests, etc...) before I make a final decision.

 

For those who married here....did you find it to be fairly affordable, because I don't want my guests having to shell out too much money. I am planning on getting the Ultimate package...does this include the room for the bride & groom? Did you find there were lots of activities to choose from for your guests (swimming with dolphins, scuba diving, etc..)

 

Sorry about all the questions, but there is just soooo much too take in, i feel as if my head is about to explode...lol

You need to contact the wedding coordinator at dreams to get your date set. As for how much it will cost, you can either get a TA ( there are plenty of them on this site, I believe Jill is the one for DC) Your room is not included in any of the packages. I would reccomend looking at their site and reading up and maybe either contacting a TA or check our expedia or some other travel site for an idea of how much it will be.

    • 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!
