Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Thank you girls for posting this. I am getting married in June 2011 and was unaware of this!!! I emailed Cecilia today and she said the hotel photographer is from Vallarta Adventures. She said if we want to use Juan, we'll have to upgrade to it. (What!!!)  I didnt worry or research photography much, because I saw how great Juan was! I don't know if I'm just being bridezilla but I am so mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I am usually the most calm person.

sorry for the vent.

 

I asked my WC to see if I can see any samples of this Vallarta Adventures photography.  I feel gyppted , it just feels wrong that now if I want Juan, I'll have to "upgrade"

 

i didnt' sign any contact with Juan besides putting down a deposit for dreams cancun and signing what we intially have to sign. 

I had asked about Juan too in February!  And everythign seemed fine. =(

Wilsom12, 

 

I appreciate this picture. My main concern is, where is the Spa Terrace located? Can I see the beach from it (like the lobby terrace)? or is it closed in. My first choice was the regular Lobby Terrace, but it is booked :0( After looking at your pictures from your review, I became interested in the Spa Terrace. Your pictures came out really nice, but there are no pictures of where the Spa Terrace is located? I haven't seen any other pictures. Is there a site that you can direct me to? or can you post more pictures. I don't mean to be a bother. Thank you for your help :0)

We didn't have Juan stay for our reception (wish we had!), so the pictures are pretty dark. It was awesome though since it was very private. The spa closes in the evening, so no one walked through or anything. I loved having it there.  We had 37 people (4 tables + sweetheart table) and I think there was room for a few more tables, but it might get a bit tight with more than 6. We had plenty of space for dancing. Here's the spa during the day:

I got that email too:(

But I wrote back to him to ask.

and this is what I got.

 

"Michelle,
I am so glad you like my work, and I really thank your warm words towards it.
Regrettably, it is true.  Me and my team are no longer the official photography company, thus, we do not shoot the inlcuded wedding photography packages.
But, if you upgrade your ultimate or love package, we could shoot your wedding.
If I can be of any further assistance, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
Best regards,
Juan Navarro
Photographer
"




And this is what I had wrote to him.


Hi Juan,

Is it true that your team is no longer included in the dreams cancun wedding package?
When we picked Cancun Dreams, we were so excited when we saw that you guys did their photography.  And thus, I did not think twice about finding another photographer. 
Is is true that now if we want to use your team, we will have to upgrade to it? because it is not included anymore. 
I did not know any of this until reading about it on a wedding forum.  many other brides are very upset too because they saw your work and loved it too!
please let me know what the situation is. 

Thank you so much.

March 18th, 2011

 

 

To all Dreams Cancun Resort Brides/Grooms,

 

I have just had a meeting with the Dreams Cancun Resort Manager and this is what we agreed on in regards to wedding photography at the Resort:

 

All wedding parties who have booked either the Love or Ultimate Wedding Package and who have personally requested our photography service or been in contact with myself or my team before March 17, 2011 will be honored. We will continue to shoot your wedding. Those couples with an upgrade of any of these packages will be honored as well.

 

Unfortunately we will not be providing our services to future wedding parties with a Love or Ultimate Package booked from this day on. Please note; we can provide our services to future wedding parties with an upgraded wedding package.

 

If I can be of any assistance, or should you have any further doubts, please feel free to contact me or your wedding coordinator on this matter.

 

Best regards,

Juan Navarro

Photographer

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
