Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Hi Yencie;

Sorry not sure how you start a thread, I believe just like in the newbie section though you start on the main page, and use create.

 

For Dreams brides - I keep getting different answers - are outside vendors allowed? I notice the DJ's seen cheaper then the DJ's from Dreams directly and I believe they are the same companies whether you book through Dreams or on your own, either Mania or Morreix, but I belive Dreams charge a surcharge for booking them....

 

Does anyone know if it is OK to book these things directly?

 

THanks,

Tori

you can bring in outside vendors (it costs $100 each). However if Dreams has a contract with these (like DJMania), then you can't book them individually.

Well I arrived in Cancun yesterday and went for my site visit at Dreams Cancun today. Let me tell you that I fell in LOVE with Dreams. The gazebo is absolutely beautiful and for the most part isolated from the other busy areas which was important to me. I did my site visit with Cecilia and she was awesome! Anything I asked from her she let me know that it was possible which I loved. She totally took her time with me and my fiance even though she had a wedding that day at 2pm. As we were on our tour several guests from a wedding party she had done the night before stopped to say hi to her and they seemed very happy. The resort is not too big, not too small, but perfect. It was VERY VERY windy when we were there. I am not sure if it is always that windy there since the whole day that day wherever we were was windy. Cecilia did say though that it is usually windy. I definetly think that for our wedding, my bridesmaids and I will need an updo. There was construction going on off to the side of the gazebo towards the beach area? Cecilia said that the goverment is working on making it a "better" beach and once it's done it should look wonderful. I had asked her if they had any other types of chairs for ceremony/reception. (The chairs they use now are kind of a dark purple color and actually need the white covers or else I don't think they would look as nice. Cecilia actually told me that they were thinking of ordering Tiffany chairs and that they will hopefully have it in the future. Cecilia showed us the Terrace in the back of the Spa and said that although they have not done many, there is an option to have a reception by the terrace in the back of the spa. She said the only condition is that the reception must be at 8pm, since that is when the spa closes. She said that this is the only place where you can have your wedding until later as it isn't really in the hotel and the noise does not bother anybody. Any other place she said the reception has to be over at 11pm. Also I asked her about the two DJ's, DJ Mannia, and DJ Doremixx. According to Cecilia the owner of DJ Mannia has moved to Dominican Republic and they have a new owner. She said that the MC is great but did say that lately they've had a couple of problems with the DJ? She didn't specify what but I believe she said that these owners were more unorganized. She gave good reviews about Doremixx. All in all I fell in love with Dreams. My fiance and I booked our date even though it's far away and I'm waiting on the proposal (July 23,2011) I am very much excited. As I am still in Cancun (I love free internet service and my laptop...lol) I will try and post pictures when I get back home :) Hope this helps!
Great information! Thank you! I want to see pictures when you get back if you can post them that would be great. I have a question is Claudia still working there or did you only see Cecilia?

I'm actually not sure who else is working there. I have been in emailing back and forth with Cecilia for a couple of months now and that was why I met with her. Cecilia actually also had a new girl there that I believe she said was an understudy. Those are the only two wedding coordinators that I met with. I do remember though emailing the main email for dreamscancun once and getting a response from Claudia so I'm assuming she is still there. I leave back to jersey today sad.gif I LOVE Mexico!!! lol Talk to you guys when I get back!

Hi Carolina,

Well I was suppose to meet with Cecilia Dumas at 12:30pm on 11/26, after my meeting with Cecilia from Dreams. Cecilia from Dreams let me use the phone at Dreams to call Cecilia Dumas. When I spoke with Cecilia she sounded confused and said that she didn't understand how her assistant had booked her appt. to meet with me today if she had a wedding to do at 2pm. (Mind you I thought she was the one that set up the appt. over email. So I don't know if I was speaking to her or her assistant?) She had even told me specifically where to meet her at! So I was very happy Cecilia let me call her from Dreams. I asked her if she was available on Saturday (since my fiance and I had booked an excursion for Friday and Sunday) and she said she had a wedding on that day also. She asked me to call her on Sunday when I got back from my excursion and that she would meet with me at whatever time since she was free the whole day. We didn't get back from our excursion until late and frankly I didn't feel like having to go back to downtown cancun so we ended up not calling her. My fiance and I were talking and we will probably be going back to Cancun July of next year again and actually STAY at Dreams Cancun so we can see how everything flows? Anyway, we decided that we will try and meet with her again in person then. I was kind of upset that she had booked to meet with me on the same day as a wedding, but like I said she blamed it on her assistant and seemed apologetic. I'm going to try and not let this misunderstanding influence my decision on Cecilia Dumas, yet.

That sounds frustrating! Glad to hear your not taking it that way and your going back in July to find out the Flow. Thanks for the info!

I'm getting so frustrated with Cecilia - I have tried to be patient with her lack of communication and I know she is busy but I have to start working on some of my DIY projects that all entail critical information from her. Is anyone else feeling this frustration?

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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?
