We actually didnt plan anything or set anything in stone until the night we arrived at Dreams.  I know that may seem like a scary thought to most brides but trust me the Dreams staff will make sure EVERYTHING you want runs perfectly!!! Our wedding day was PERFECT i couldnt have asked for mroe

Wondering when you guys started hearing back from your WC to start putting together your wedding package.  Our wedding is 7 weeks from yesterday.  Our date was set and our contract drawn up for the Ultimate Pkg back in March/April...will I be hearing from them soon about flower selections, booking the photographer (want to make sure I get Juan Navarro! His pics look amazing!), appointing an officiant, etc...???

 

Also, I had read a while back on the Dreams website that they were working on providing a web address that friends/family that couldn't make it to Mexico to attend your wedding could go to to watch a live feed of the wedding online.  Anyone know if this is true or has been able to utilize this for your wedding?

 

Thanks ladies!

Debbie  :)

You didn't plan anything in advance?  Not flowers, cake, menu, DJ, photographer details, etc.? 

 

I would love to not have to bug the wedding coordinator ahead of time (as all of the brides say how busy they are with the weddings that are in progress), but I would be scared to think that they couldn't accomodate my request because I didn't give them notice.

I sent an email request through the Dreams website to check availability on a few possible wedding dates over a week ago and no response yet?  Hmm should I email Claudia directly, or is that typical, and if so whats her email??  HELP :-)

I never got a response through the Dreams website.  I didn't try her direct email, instead my travel agent was able to get a quick response.  I am using TA Jill through this website.

Or better yet what BDW TA specializes or has had the most experience with Dreams Cancun, Do you gals have any fav's? I am thinking it will probably be faster to just hand this all over to a TA.

TA Jill specializes in the Dreams Resorts and was even married at Dreams Cancun, so she is who I am using.  At this point I would highly recommend her.  Several of the brides married at Dreams Cancun have used her and gave her great marks on their post-wedding reviews here on BDW.

Okay I have been home almost a month (3 weeks) and I still have not posted my review so not sure if it is okay to post here but here goes in order:

 

Arrival to Dreams- Perfect!  We booked the Jr. club suite in the towers and after sitting just long enough to be served a drink the took us over to the lounge there and checked us in immediately.  Our room was gorgeous!  On  the 9th floor- beautiful view, probably the best room I have ever stayed in!!  Champagne and fruit waiting for us with a banner on our door.  We even had a huge bouquet of flowers brought to our room the next day and I have no idea why but they stayed all week.

 

I met with Claudia that afternoon and all I can say is she is wonderful!  Took care of the witness signing right away, paid and I was pretty much done.  Picked out the food right then and she was very easy going about it.  I made sure I tipped her $100 right away because she had been so good emailing me this whole time.

 

Had the blood work the next day.  They came right to the room and it was simple.

 

Rehearsal- I pretty much ran it, but it was nice to run thru.  It was so windy that night that at the last minute I asked Claudia if we could move the reception into the club terrace lounge area and she let me.  I'm so glad I did this.  It was perfect that way but I will get to that.

 

Wedding day- Okay I brought all my decorations to Claudia that day(centerpieces for tables, sashes for chairs and party favors) and she handled everything exactly.  I even gave her a diagram and had place cards for the tables and she did it exactly.  My hair appt. was at 12:30 and Maria did my hair & make-up.  I cant say enough about her.  I told her I wanted my hair with big curls and she did it better then I have EVER had my hair put up (and I have been in 13 weddings so I do this a lot)  She made me feel beautiful and the make-up was amazing.  She doesn't spell it with like I did, but her name was Maria and I highly recommend her.

 

Claudia came in to show me my bouquet and it was more beautiful then I could have picked.  I had sent her an example of hot pink and orange one I liked and told her I trusted her and to match as well as she could.  I knew there were more expensive flowers in there, but I loved it so much and am so glad I just trusted her.

 

-Ceremony-They played my music exactly as I asked.  One thing I would suggest, I did a legal ceremony, but still sent the judge (sent to claudia) the exact wording I wanted.  It was blowing so hard I wish now I would have laminated everything.  From the judges ceremony, to my readings, it would have helped a lot.  SO LAMINATE!  I also did a rock ceremony instead of the sand ceremony and I LOVED how it turned out.  Very special and I have great keepsake.  The judge did not speak very good english and she did forget to ask my father who gives this woman...(he was upset about that) but overall it was fine.  My guests could hear her better then we could with the sound system (which is totally worth the $180 by the way)

 

-After the ceremony:  We walked down the pathway and each of our guests followed us out which was great to see on the video.  My wedding party and Mike & I formed a greeting line in the club terrace lounge to get out of the wind.  Then Juan immediately took the group shot and a few family.  I do wish I would have done more family but he is on a tight time schedule with the sun and we only had 40 min before sunset.

 

-Photograher & video- By far the best photographer I have EVER encountered.  My pictures are absolutely amazing.  I have the album with over 50 pictures plus the 2 additional cd's for a total of 750 pictures for an additional $300.  I will say this again.  If you are bringing your own photographer with you or outsourcing this from Juan, YOU ARE CRAZY!  He is amazing....The video was also like a perfect movie, incorporating my own music.  Best I had ever seen.  Miguel was great and this was part of the ultimate package.  The photos and video alone are worth the $2700 by far!!!!

 

-Reception- Soo glad I moved it inside the lounge.  This worked out great.  Even though it's the lobby of the Towers it was like our own private room.  I traded the cocktail hour for 10 additional dinner guest and so glad I did.  There is a bar right in the lounge and also everynight in there they put out appetizers.  So while we were getting photos taken, my guest thought the appetizers were for them.   My tables for the reception were already set up and they transferred my sashes to all the chairs and had it decorated beautifully.  I had flowers on the head table that matched everything (this was included in the package) and they also utilized on the table the flowers on the table from the ceremony.  Claudia also set it up exactly as I had it, name places and all.

 

-DJ-This was very expensive, but so glad I had it.  He played from 6-9 (really started by 5:30 which is when we got back from photos) and ended at 9- We did our first dance right away, and then wedding party joined in and then my dance with my dad.  Then ate and cut cake and then danced the rest of the night.  We were ready at 9:00 to go change and everyone went to the disco and had a great night till really late.  It was really busy that night for some reason and very fun.

 

-Decorations- Claudia did great and I did not stress about these things.  I traded the 3 piece trio for gazebo decorations and the tulle and flowers were beautiful.  I would highly recommend this.  It is so windy you don't want to do to much.  They also tied 2 of my sashes on the poles and it looked very colorful and the flowers for the centerpiece table looked beautiful and it had my rock ceremony vase on it.  Great looking picture.  I was there for the 85 person wedding and I see why the bride was upset with Juliette.  They hardly did anything for her for decorations.  All I can say is trust Dreams and Claudia.  I did order my bridesmaid bouquets from Juliette because I saw the recommendations on this website, and she also did my boutinierres.  They were all pretty and no problems there.  Although the night before I kind of panicked because I realized that Juliette had not gotten ahold of me like she said and when I asked Claudia about her she said she had never heard of her.  But when I got to me room that night Juliette had left me 2 messages and I spoke with her in the am and they were delivered just fine.

 

-Overall service- A +++++.  I do all inclusive all the time and this place by far had the best service, staff, cleanliness I have experienced.  The food at ALL of the restaurants were superb, some of the best steak ever and best sushi.  By far best decision I have ever made.

 

Some of my photos I posted on my profile page.  Sorry this took so long...

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

       
    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
