Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Congrats Admin!! Can't wait to see your review & pics:)

 

I just checked my Q & A form from Claudia & it does say that an extra charge will apply for a wedding rehersal. It doesn't say how much but i'm going to write an email to Claudia asking her. I can't imagine it'll be too much since a rehersal only takes 10 minutes, but its still pretty ridiculous...

One thing that I've been discussing with Cecilia is having a rehearsal. How long did it take for any of you past brides? I'm hoping not much more than half an hour. Also, did you actually play your music to practice the timing? It seems like we wouldn't be able to hear it very well with our tiny speakers and the wind (we're renting the sound system for the day of), so I'm pretty worried about how it'll all work out.
we're renting the sound system as well, but i'll have my iphone in one ear so that i can really get the timing right. Cecilia says it takes as long as you'd like, i'm thinking everthing can get squared away in half and hour.

as for the dreams, you're not the only one! the other night i had a dream that everyone was taking their seats and my hair was still wet, i had no make-up on, and when i went to put my dress on, i realized it wasnt altered!! plus my mom was decorating the house (yes we were getting married at some house!) with pink blow up ballons and streamers!!! ahhhh!!

there is no cost for the actual rehearsal, per Cecilia...don't know why Claudia has said differently. if you want a "private" rehearsal dinner, then that's extra.

Also, anybody have anything they want me to ask/take pictures of while I'm there?

There will be no sleep for me tonight!!!!! :)
OMG....you're getting married in less than a WEEK!!!! congrats, you'll have a beautiful wedding!

The Rehearsal is free. It would be robbery if they charged you for that! hahaha

Honestly unless your worried about the song being too short, I wouldn't even worry about timing.
Claudia had a head set on and she would tell the sound guy when to change the songs and it was flawless :)

unless they changed since last year, the rehearsal itself is free and def takes less than a half hour. really all it is, is a walk thru of how you're lined up, where to walk, where to stand, etc. that's it. no music, no officiant present, no practicing your vows or anything. only a rehearsal "dinner" has a cost, but honestly, i think that's a ripoff ... i mean how many dinners are you willing to pay for at an AI? just go to one of the restaurants with your bridal party and call it a day!

 

ditto what jenn said about the music ... if you are renting the sound system, they adjust the music to fit your pace, not the other way around. trust that it will be totally seamless and perfect! when you get to where you need to be, sound guy will just fade it out.

Oh, he'll fade the music out? That was probably my biggest concern, that the song would be in the middle of a chorus and there'd be an abrupt cutoff. I just assumed the sound guy didn't really do anything except press 'play' and 'next'. That makes me feel so much better!

yeah the sound guy really takes care of everything. you have nothing to worry about at all! cheesy.gif i had a mini-freakout when i realized i never tested the cd i burned for the ceremony music ... for all i knew i handed them a blank cd or all the songs would skip. claudia (my WC) assured me that the sound guy would have checked out the cd beforehand to make sure everything was ok, and that it was his JOB to do so. made me feel so much better, and everything *was* just fine. i only wish i had put a few more tunes on the cd.

for anyone doing a legal ceremony: do yourself a favor and have a song (or two) for the guy to play during the signing of your documents! this literally took HALF of the entire ceremony time to accomplish. i wish i were kidding. 6 people need to sign in triplicate, plus bride and groom need to thumbprint.

if you are getting the video, be sure to have a disc of songs to hand the videographer. i didn't think ahead on this, so he just got our ceremony cd, which didn't include our first dance song or anything like that.

    • 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!
