Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

I'm am SO CONFUSED! What does everyone mean by signing a contract? Is that what I had signed when putting down our deposit for The Ultimate Wedding pkg.  our Date/time/Location etc? Would that mean that we fall into the Juan photo category? We booked our Wedding in February for our Wedding in October.. Is there more I need to be signing?  We are just having a simple ceremony with the cocktail hr, and Reception dinner. (Having a large reception when we get back) Should I be contacting Cecilia about signing another contract? Sorry If I sound like a Lameo..... I am just a bit confused on the whole thing.. Thank you

Hey girl, I think you are fine!  Usually putting the deposit down means signing your contact electronically.  So yes, I would think if you paid them by March 17th, you are in contract with them.   YAY Girls!  I'm so happy for you!!!!

 

Also, to anyone who has trouble with email, I have called a few times in these past months when I had questions.  They will answer in Spanish, but just say your coordinators name and they will transfer you.  Anyone having their wedding between June 15th and June 29th,  I will be there and would love to be a fly on the wall.

Hi,

 

I emailed Juan yesterday and got the response below.  Our wedding is October 29, 2011 and we signed our contract in mid-February.

 

Meghan,
I am no longer the official Dreams photographer therefore I do not shoot anymore the included packages of the Resort, Ultimate and Love packages.
Nevertheless, I am still a vendor for the hotel.
If I can be of further assistance, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
Best regards,
Juan Navarro
Photographer 

 

We have hired wedding coordinators/travel agents (who are "Dreams Certified").  I emailed her this morning to see what she has to say.  She always seems to get a much quicker response from Claudia.  I can keep everyone posted.

Hey Girls,

I just talked to Cecilia (WC) yesterday and she told me that I would have to upgrade my photo package in order to have Juan as a photographer (although I signed prior to 3/17).  I believe all that was required for the upgrade was paying for one additional hour, which is $250 and then I would be able to get Juan as well as 50 additional pictures from the wedding.  Are others getting Juan without having to spend any additional $?  Uhhh, I hate having to fight for something that should already be included!

Ginny bride: Yes i have emailed claudia three times now to clarify about this because I am getting so many conflicting responses, but from both Juan and Claudia I get Juan or one of his team as my photographer without having to pay more. Now I don't know why this is happening to you. I would make sure every email is printed out though and brought to her on your wedding day

Hi,

 

Our wedding is October 29, 2011.  We have the Ultimate Package and paid our deposit mid-February.  This is the email I received from Juan:

 

   Meghan,
I am no longer the official Dreams photographer therefore I do not shoot anymore the included packages of the Resort, Ultimate and Love packages.
Nevertheless, I am still a vendor for the hotel.
If I can be of further assistance, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
Best regards,
Juan Navarro
Photographer

 

So, I am not sure what is going on.  I emailed the wedding coordinator that we are working with here in Chicago.  I asked her to contact Claudia ti see what is going on.  More to come hopefully...

I made sure that both of them confirmed Juan would be doing the photography, printed those emails, and put them in my "important stuff" binder. I wasn't told that I would have to upgrade but that an additional hour was optional. From what I understand, anyone who put their deposits in prior to March 17, 2011, will have Juan Navarro Photography. Everyone else after that date, will have Vallarta Photography.

I actually put my deposit down on 2/12; however, I do not have anything in writing regarding Juan b/c at the time that was a part of the package deal, so I did not confirm it.  At the time, I was just looking into dreams and didnt realize how great Juan was!  Eventhough I did book before 3/17, they are telling me that I have to upgrade in order to get Juan.  Not sure what is going on here!  GRRRR!!!!  I have not put up a big fight about it just yet, but why do they make things so difficult for us??

Not to get off topic of Juan, but what are most people doing for decorations?  For example center pieces on the tables.  Do most brides take decorations yourself, buy them down there, or let dreams handle them?  Or another idea I had were paper latterns.  What are some other ideas and easy to transport decorations?

Ginny bride: According to other brides its really expensive to get centerpieces through dreams inless thats in your budget. I am doing my own centerpieces and distributing them through my family to carry down. I also got my own chair bows and table runners from weddinglinensdirect.com they are great to deal with and are usually two day delivery and much cheaper then renting them through dreams.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
