Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

well, I'm glad I'm not the only one! If thats what happens you'd think they would know by now to "look" for it wherever it is that they "find" them.

Sorry to be a pest but after 2 months of looking (SIGH) we have narrowed our options down to Dreams Cancun and Playa Fiesta - totally different but we like both for different reasons!

 

We are concerned about Dreams Cancun having a curfew - does anyone know for sure whether Dreams Cancun has a curfew?

Okay Ladies, I have E-Mailed Claudia and her assistant with out any luck (for almost two weeks) so I tried to read through this thread again but I am running out of time in front of the computer. So I thought I would ask you wonderful ladies some of these questions. Any help would be GREAT!

 

* Do they have an aisle runners?

 

* What decorations do they have for the walkway leading to the Gazebo?

 

* I am doing the white flags, but she never told me how many flagpoles they have?

 

* What kind of Activities/Events/Dinners do they have going on Fri,Sat evenings?

 

* For my cocktail hour I was told to choose from the Gold Menu, can I pick from the silver instead?

 

* Do they take any type of reservations for a private dinner? If so what are the cost and which restaurants??

 

I was wanting to do a "rehearsal" dinner on that Saturday evening for about 20-30 people....

 

* What is everyone doing for their Vows?

 

Okay, thats all for now smile105.gif

Hey Katherine!

Is that picture from yoru legal wedding? It's a great picture of you and Seth.

 

I hate to hear that you are having such a hard time getting in touch with them... You are so close to your wedding...

I can only answer a few of your questions:

 

* I am doing the white flags, but she never told me how many flagpoles they have?

Maybe you should tell her how many you want, they are $35 USD each plus 10% tax. I have pictures of them in a word doc. PM me with your email address if you need it.

 

* What kind of Activities/Events/Dinners do they have going on Fri,Sat evenings?

I think this varies. We will go next door to Azucar probably after our welcome dinner.

* For my cocktail hour I was told to choose from the Gold Menu, can I pick from the silver instead?

If you are paying for the Dreams Ultimate Wedding Pkg, you can choose between gold and silver... just not the platinum. (I also liked many items on the silver menu).

* Do they take any type of reservations for a private dinner? If so what are the cost and which restaurants??

Only in a couple of the restaurants, didn't get a good answer on this one, and I asked several times, read her response at the bottom first...

Me: Which restaurants would have the charge listed below and which do not?

Claudia: all of them except himitus, but we can´t accomodate large groups there.

Me: Would we be able to reserve an area for dinner for our guests on the Friday before the wedding?

 

Claudia: $ 10 usd charge per person in some of our restaurants, this will depend on the number of your guests

 

I may do what Kimiko did (wkbroome), I think it was her...

She met with everyone in the lobby, welcomed them, handed out the OOT bags, then invited them to have dinner with them in the World Cafe. They chose a time they knew wasn't too busy.

 

I was wanting to do a "rehearsal" dinner on that Saturday evening for about 20-30 people....

 

* What is everyone doing for their Vows?

I am not writing much on my own, making them short and sweet.

My sister had a book I am working my way through for the entire ceremony.

I will go over it with the officiant, or send it to C & D to review with them.

Hope this helps a little!

Hey PaulaV,

 

Yes, that picture was right after our legal wedding. I have some great pics, but haven't had a chance to post them yet. Thank You smile159.gif

 

Well, thank you for your help in answering those questions.

I am thinking of just having everyone meet us in the lobby also then head to dinner. That will probably be the easiest choice.

I just want to see if we can do a rehearsal now on that Saturday, I'm sure a wedding will be taking place at some point. I can't wait to see Jilly's wedding on Friday, then another on Saturday!!

 

Oh good, I am paying for the Ult. Package, I do like options on both menus ...hehe

I do have a picture of the flags, I just wasn't sure how far they went out..I need an ariel view..lol

 

Thanks again for your help!! It was greatly appreciated!!!!!!!

I think what I've heard is that for outside receptions they have to end by 11, but if its in the ballroom it can go later. But I think we're just going to head to one of the bars once it gets later.

you girls are too funny! Katherine I hope I get to meet you, I'm also hoping to catch a glimpse of your wedding before we leave for El Dorado, what time is your ceremony? Feel free to come down and introduce yourself!

I'm wondering who the Saturday wedding is, no one from this forum, but thats the date I originally wanted!

Jill, did Claudia confirm if she got the wire or not?

She sent me a new account to send it to and I should not have a problem since it is to my same bank...

FYI.... I will be leaving on Wednesday morning for Cancun and wanted to offer to take certain pictures, get information, ask certain questions, or anything that might help all of you out!!!!

 

I'm a picture kind of girl and pictures really help me out with decisions and so on. So, if any of you need anything, just make a list.. and i will do what ever it is! (certain angles, day or night etc......)

 

P.s... I will be posting some pictures of all of my crap within the next few days for all of you to look at.....

 

Thanks again for everything~

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
