Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

From previous comments on this thread, I think kids do count but at a discounted price.  I will be interested in the answer to this question because we will at least have 3 YOUNG kids at the wedding (3 yr, 2yr, and 1 yr).  However, I will have to see if their mom plans on bringing them to the reception or putting them to bed first.

That was exactly what I guess I should see, the kids we are having are two 1 year olds, a 3 year old and a 6 year old. It just doesn't make sense for the three and under to count since they are free at the resort

Kids do count!  Under 12 count as half a person.  I don't know the lower limit (ie...does a 6mo old or 1yo count?) but I do know our 2 and 3year olds counted.

Thanks!!! Does anyone also know if you can just have them put together tables at World Cafe for a welcome dinner instead of paying for one??

January 27th!!!!  I would be super excited and nervous too.  Just remember what every Dreams Cancun bride says - your wedding will be perfect and don't stress because everything will get taken care of at your pre-wedding meeting.

 

As for the fire drummer show, $1250 certainly seems a bit steep.  Although every price I have seen for any fire performance on this forum has seemed outrageous.  I hope you are able to work it out with her because that would be amazing for your guests and the pictures would be phenomenal.

@NurseM: Kids do count...the 3 yr old that will be at our wedding counts.  But I would imagine that any child under age 1 wouldn't count..only kids that would be having a plated dinner.  The 3 options for kids are chicken fingers, hamburger/cheeseburger or mac & cheese.  And as Chipotle stated above, they are half the adult price.

she just emailed me this week! 

 

But didn't answer my questions, lol.  I asked for her information on butterfly releases and asked her if she uses Liberacion de mariposas and if so would she give them a call (I gave her the number).  Then I asked her how much DJ Mannia and the dance floor would be for us total and separate (we may just do the dance floor and go with our ipod).  She sent back that her butterfly people when out of business and I could use mine and that she would use them in the future if it turned out well for me (so I guess I'm doing that myself) and she commented that the dance floor is nice (no price).  Ahhhhh!  She always does that.  You would think that if you respond to someone only once every few months, you would make it worth the wait by answering the persons questions.  She cracks me up, but she was awesome to work with in person at my site visit, so no worries!

 

Also, does anyone else know the size of the dance floor?  We are taking dance lessons in March and our instructor wants to know the amount of space he has to work with when he choreographs the dance.  I'm looking for the dimensions. 

 

Updates!  I am in such a lazy rut right now.  I'm on call with three different jobs and whenever I try to plan a day to start my invites, order favors, OOT bags, etc, I get called in!  I need the money, but I really need to get on the ball.  Also, pretty much everyone on his side has booked, including friends.  Not one of my side has book except for my dad.  Not even my maids (well, except for the one who is dating the best man, since they booked together, and FI's sister, but still, that's his side).  My maids have been promising for months, and I'm afraid that all the good direct flights will be sold out.  I know, I know.... be patient!  My cousin came with to shop for BM dresses, but then never ordered hers and I had to authorize the mass order without hers or else everyone else that paid for theirs wouldn't get it in time (and I'm not going to buy a dress for someone I'm not even sure is coming).  Then she fell off the face of the planet and didn't return my calls or messages for over a month, AND skipped out on any holiday family gathering where I planned to ask her.  Then out of nowhere, calls me last week saying she's booking when her taxes come in.  I have no idea what to do for a dress with her and quite frankly, I still think in the back of my mind that she'll wiggle out of it again.  I just want her to be honest with me, but I think she's not even being honest with herself.  She wants to go so badly, but then feels guilty when she realizes how hard it is going to be.  She doesn't even have a phone right now (hence the not calling me... she has to borrow her friends phone).  It's funny though, because all of this doesn't seem to bother me as much as it used to.  I realized I can't control any of this (except for making the invites and swag).  I just keep counting down to the day (less than 6 months!)  I keep reading about all of your weddings coming up and can't wait to see some reviews!  Rachel, are you super stoked yet!?!?! 

 

P.S.  I got legally (and Catholic) married last week.  Shhhhhhh!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
