Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Okay ladies, I talked to my travel agent this morning. She had been out of the country on her own vacation when all these issues came up with Dreams. She made me feel much better. She agreed with TA Jill and said that usually the guests that get bumped booked their reservations with an online service (Orbitz, Travelocity, etc) or if they book directly thru the hotel.

 

All of our guests used her to book and most of them are thru Apple Vacations. She said they should not try to move them. She said the Dreams Resorts needs to keep all of their contracted travel company guests happy. Plus they realize that we will have Apple reps there to help us if there is an issue when we try to check in.

 

She also said that they usually do not overbook their hotel like this. There was a major computer glitch in April. She said something happened and they were giving out confirmations I think on their own website and it wasn't taking the rooms out of inventory. In all the years she has only had this happen once with Dreams. She said that was Spring Break time, around Easter, etc. and a VERY busy time for Cancun in general.

 

So she told me not to worry. She said Dreams usually takes very good care of their guests. She said that we should be fine. So I just wanted to pass that long to all of the upcoming brides that are stressed out like I was. I think as long as they get the gazebo ready on time, then everything will work out for us. :) And I am trying to stay positive.

The manager of Dreams just sent me some photos of the new gazebo. But when I try to upload them it says they are invalid files. I don't know why, they are jpegs. Can someone help? I know everybody will want to see these new photos. One is of an actual wedding that took place yesterday.

Have you tried sending them to your photobucket account & then copying the image file from there and posting that way?

You could email them to me & i'll try if you don't have a photobucket account...melbc80@hotmail.com

Are these pics of the brand new gazebo or just the temporary gazebo?

OK....She has sent me the photos of the new gazebo....the first is an illustration of what the gazebo will look like when completed. I really hope this isn't exactly as it will look as it is alittle underwhelming IMO...Regardless, thanks so much for letting us post them so we can be kept in the loop with the changes :)

ok, I have to post again, i hate to be Debbie downer...I guess the original one was just more traditional looking which I liked...

Click the image to open in full size.

 

The new one could look really nice once it is finished, maybe add some organza curtains.. It just needs more depth.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
