Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Chris -   If you wouldn't mind, when you get the information on the DJ and the dance floor prices can you post them here?  I plan on doing both (the light up dance floor) and would love to know the final price.

 

Sorry to hear about your side of the wedding not booking yet - especially your cousin.  I think you are right in thinking there still may be a good chance that she doesn't make it.  I don't doubt that she is trying to come and if she needs a tax return that it might not end up happeneing.  But is sounds like you have lowered your expectations so you won't be disappointed.

 

I see impending family drama with my sister on the horizon:  to not have to worry about which friends could or could not make it, my fiance and I are only having family in the wedding party.  My sister will be my only bridesmaid and my fiance is having his father and his two brothers.  Well - my sister is married and has been trying to have a baby and it hasn't worked out for them.  So she and her husband will try in-vitro this summer.  So, if it works, she will be approaching the 6-month flight restriction when my wedding rolls around.  Add to that she HATES flying - has commented on driving from North Carolina to either Miami or Texas for shorter flights!!!  She has said that she is only planning on staying in Mexico for 3 nights!  If I hated flying that much, you better believe I would be staying long enough to make it worth the torture.  My mother has offered to pay for a couple of extra nights for she and her husband and call it their birthday presents for the year (so they won't feel like they are getting a freebie), but they said no.  So I think my sister, my only bridesmaid, might try and back out on me at the last minute.  Just a guess but between a potential pregnancy, hating to fly (when she did fly for her honeymoon she had medication which she likely won't be able to take if preggers), and only wanting to stay the minimum number of nights.  I hope I am wrong, but I can see it coming....

Sheena -

 

I just looked at your pictures and they are fantastic!  Of course you have plenty of gorgeous ones (the one of your husband on your back in the cenote is very artistic), but somehow my favorite (because it was candid) was of you sitting on the beach chair looking at the camera.  I saw some things from your wedding that I am interested in...like the cenote TTD, the lit up dance floor, the flags, and I thought your gazebo flowers were gorgeous.  Would you be willing to tell us about the items you added to your package (and how much they cost) in your review?

 

Thanks

Courtney

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!

 

 

 

Lol! love your comments! I totally have been emailing Claudia and no respose in about a month. lol! I also asked asked about the dance floor and about the lounge furniture. 

 

Congrats on the secret! lol!

 

Oh and I went through a destination wedding planner which helped get people book there rooms , because we blocked rooms with a great price for our guests. Girl I was on everybody every day trying to get them to book.. Finally they booked so i feel so much better.. The great thing about the website they had a payment plan for some people that could pay all at once.  I used Destination Weddings .com

 

I love this site!

Terry, I am so glad that is working out for you.  I know there is a thread on here where a lot of people had bad experiences with them.  But you and some others had good experiences too.  There is all of a sudden this big craze with the lounge furniture.  Are ppl using this instead of tables.  Is this the same as those cute white couches I saw on here many pages back?

 

Hmmm, could have sworn I posted before, but maybe not.   Sheena, you looked amazing.  Congrats and can't wait for the review!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
