Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

For those who have already been married at Dreams, did you just pack thinks like OOT bags, centerpieces, wedding dress, etc, in your luggage?  Or did you ship it ahead of time?

Rudebaga -  You look beautiful in that picture....Can you tell me what dress you are wearing?!  I think it might be the one I have - Allure 8705.  If so, then I will be super excited to see how it photographs.

I cover that fully in my review...coming soon!

@clgriffi7...We are indeed dress twins! Allure 8705!  I can't wait to see how it looks in the professional pics too!  I did have some alterations to it...I had it made with a sweetheart neckline and I also had them remove those sqaurish shaped petals on the underside of the flower on the hip.

 

@coones...I would try pack everything.  I brought my dress as a carry-on on the plane, if you fold it in half, it fits in the overhead compartment with no problems.  Any extra stuff I'd try pack in your luggage or give some to friends and family to try pack if you have too much.  We did a legal marriage ceremony and I had to mail copies of our birth certificates and passports to our wedding coordinator a month before our wedding.  I mailed the documents via USPS International Express mail, they should've arrived in 5-8 business days, but they didn't get there until 3 weeks later!  Anything you ship internationally has to go through customs and they have some rules about what can be shipped, so if they see something they don't allow, your package may not make it, or it may get there too late for your wedding!

 

Once my review is posted, I put a message on here about how to find it on this site!

Isn't it amazing how you can spot your own dress from a distance and a side shot?!  How did the dress do with the heat of the afternoon?  I have a feeling I will be seriously sweating as I take pictures in the mid-afternoon (before the sunset ceremony), but I loved the dress enough that I decided it was worth it.

I think it is beautiful that you have the white/ivory hair flower that seems to match the flower on the dress.  Because I have light hair I will have to go with a fuschia flower (to match the shoes), but I would have preferred the white/ivory.

@clgriffi7: Actually, I didn't find the dress to be too hot at all! It was one of the more lightweight dresses I tried on when dress shopping and with the breeziness at the gazebo I wasn't sweating or too hot at all...well, I guess I wasn't because there was a windstorm going on during our ceremony and photos, but the wind died down for the reception and I never felt too hot in that dress while dancing so I'm sure you'll have no overheating/oversweating problems as well :)

 

And...I got an email from our photographers (Tony and Alex w/ Juan Navarro Photography) today with our proofs to pick from..I cannot believe how many great pics they got for having to deal with the windstorm during our ceremony and pictures, but they got some really great shots.  My hubby's hair looks a little funny is some shots blowing around..but my hair really didn't move!!!  Much thanks to the Dreams Spa/Salon!

I was actually going to ask about a sweetheart neckline when I go in for alterations.  And that is a great idea for the flower..I was thinking of just cutting it off altogether, but maybe there is a way to salvage it!

 

I just checked Juan Navarro's website hoping to see your pictures....guess I will just have to waitlove.gif

Wow - 3 of us ?!!!  As long as we aren't at the resort at the same time, then all I can say is congratulations on picking such a beautiful dress...

 

I think the corset will look fantastic.  I will plan on sticking with the buttons just to make using the little girls' room a bit easier!!  With a mermaid dress like that, there will be no hiking it up....

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
