Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Hang in there! I had the same issue and almost moved my wedding as well. Seriously! The invitations were printed and I was about ready to pull the plug anyway because I could not get a reply from the WC. I was told Claudia's mother was very sick and passed away?? So she is/was very behind. My TA finally called and spoke with the sales director, I got really quick responses after that. Although, now I feel a little guilty for complaining while the poor WC was dealing with the illness and death of her mother... YIKES!!

lol...thanks for all your comments, it seems my patience has left me...atleast i know i'm not the only one that goes through this...

 

On a better note...I recieved my contract today!!! YAY!!!! I also asked if she would exchange the cocktail hour for a few more people added to the reception...and she replied that she would add 10 more!!! My day couldn't be better!!

 

I'm so happy! I really didn't want to change venues as i have it all planned out in my head like a crazy person, and i don't think i would have been very happy to have to change it...

I am glad it finally worked out for you! I am getting more and more worried reading these posts....my wedding is coming close and I am getting no response from Claudia about the questions I have! First I was working with Olimpia who was really quick, but now all of a sudden she doesnt work there! Has anyone done programs for the ceremony? I asked Claudia about doing that but nothing....

I'm 90% sure that things like menus and programs you have to do your self and give them to her when you get down there. What I've done is start a "questions journal" and everytime I think of something to ask I write it down so when we get there I'll have it in front of me. Also, I've read from a lot of brides that when they meet with the WC, she (the WC) has all of the emails you ever sent her printed in front of her, so you'll be able to go through your questions then too.

Thanks!

With that out of the way, all I am going to concern myself with is the planning from this end..OOT bags, etc...I have heard that once you get there it takes an hour or so for her to go over everything with you and plan it, so i really don't feel like i have anything else i need to talk with her about!!

 

I can relax now...thankfully

Any past Dreams brides that used the in house photographer? I'm contemplating whether or not to use him or go with an outside photographer. I'm not sure what photgraphy package the Ultimate Wedding Package covers. I know the number of photos but don't know the cost of it if I do choose to go with an outside vendor I want to get the appropriate credit towards something else on my list.

 

If anyone has insight on the in house photographer please send my way.

Try principal

thats his website above..i don't know why it says principal. Some of the girls on here have used him & have good things to say. My plan is to use him for the wedding ceremony & then i'm going to use Pierre Violle for my TTD session as i think i'm more excited about the TTD than the whole ceremony...

Good Luck :)

I used him...& I was really happy with the outcome :) There is a link to my Picture post in my signature if you want to check them out.
I also know that Stacy used him..If you search this thread you'll see her link as well.
They told me that with the package I would have him 1.5 hours...Which is basically a half hour for the ceremony and an hour for the after cermeony pics. I was EXTREMELY nervous that we wouldn't get done all the pics I wanted in an hour and I would have to pay for his time & Etc.
But everything worked out. We were longer than an hour after the ceremony, but that was his fault..LOL he wanted us to go over to the light house and take some awsome pics, which took up alot of time.
Walking up those rocks barefoot in my huge dress wasn't fun, but I loved my pictures so it was worth it.
2days later he sent his assistant to come meet us and he gave us a leather Photo album with about 60 pictures (the package comes with 50, he gave us a few more) He picked out the best ones, which was fine because we also thought theyw ere the best ones.
His assistant also dropped off our Video from the Videographer which I loved! Then he gave us a CD with the 60 pictures that were in the album, and he also had the CD of ALL the pictures that were take that day (over 600)...He had a laptop with him and we saw ALL of those pics. He told us if we wanted to buy it it would be 350.00...Which was a little high in my opinion, but I wanted those pictures! So we bought it. I'm so happy we did.
There aren't any copyrights on them so you can get them printed & get books made & etc and that is what we are in the process of doing now.
I am happy I went with Juan, I was on a really tight budget and I was a little depressed that I couldn't afford another Photographer, but in the end, I was so happy!! :)

Good luck
P.S. Wow, sorry this is sooo long..LOL

    • 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.
