Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how extensive Claudia's catalog of fowers are that you get t pick from. I have so a long time till my wedding and I really do not want to be stressing out about it this whole time!! My package includes flowers so I have decided to use the resort for my flowers. I am to nervous to go with an outside florist after the latest reviews on some of the outside florist! Any help would be much appreciated!

@barbiebride24: I don't know a separate cost for wedding make-up done at the spa, but if you are doing one of the wedding packages, like the Ultimate package, your hair and make-up are included in the cost.  Also, as for when to book your appt, you have plenty of time.  I called the spa a week or so ago and was told they do all their appt bookings via email.  I had emailed them asking when to book my appt months ago but never heard back.  I think if you try contact them too soon, you won't hear back.  I would say email them about 4 weeks prior to your wedding date to set up your appt (and let them know if it is just you or if you have a maid of honor or bridesmaids that will need appts too).  My wedding is Jan 22, 2011 and I just made my spa appt last week.  I emailed them and heard back in 48 hours. And on deciding a reception location: Keep in mind the number of guests and time of your wedding (by the way, if you are wanting sunset pictures, your wedding coordinator can help you decide on an appropriate ceremony time).  We are choosing to have our ceremony at noon and have a group size of 24 people.  We are going with the Terrace since our reception will be in the middle of the day so the Terrace will provide some cover from the direct sunlight and with a smaller group, we can just push the tables aside after dinner and dance on the Terrace, therefore saving us the cost of the dancefloor.  Hope that helps!

 

 

Now another question of my own....with the Ultimate package we can select dinner options from the Silver or Gold menu...anybody know if we can mix and match the salad/soup/entree/dessert selections or do we have to stick with one of the 4-course meal options that is already put together???

 

Thanks ladies!

I am pretty sure you can mix and match from the different menus. I have seen in the reviews where brides pick whatever they want!

If you like the beach, I say the Himitsu side... less windy. I hear the new terrace is nice too!  The Gazebo and Caribe side of the beach are very windy, so sand may blow in your food. I'm not a fan of indoor options, but that is just my opinion!

@barbiebride24--yes, they do have lounge furniture, but the price isn't listed on the Dreams website.  You have to contact your wedding coordinator for pics and prices :)

Hi All,

 

The day after we arrived in the resort we went to the weddings office and met with Cecilia - she gave me a slip of paper with the things for me to do.  One of them was my appointments for hair and makeup, as well as appointments for the couples massage and facial we received with the eternity honeymoon pacakge, we went straight to the spa and booked them when we were there.

I had the ultimate package so hair and makeup was included, she did an absoultely fantastic job, I told her what I liked and she did exactly that only much better then I could have done.  everybody commented on it.

In regards to the menu, we had somebody allergic to seafood, so the soup / salad / desert had to be the same but we were allowed to have individuals choose from a choice of 2 main courses and we had to provide Cecilia with these chooses 1 week prior.

 

Hope this helps,

Tori
