Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

I would recommend Teresa the TA vacations for less. If you call Tammy from wright travel the moderator from this website she will hook you up with Teresa who has been more than amazing for us. If Claudia is not answering emails she is right on it and gets an answer within hours. She has been a lifesaver!!

Hi,

 

We signed our contract in February and our wedding is October 29Th.  I would recommend doing it sooner than later.  Especially if you are doing the legal ceremony.  You have to make sure the date, time and judge are all available.  Also, once you sign the contract/pay deposit you secure the area you choose for your reception.  We went through three dates before we found October 29Th.  I was flexible on the weekend, but I wanted the 4:00 time and a Saturday, and the Terrace for my reception.

 

 Good luck.

I'm still waiting to sign the contract, there has been lots of stress to say the least! We put a down payment on the trip itself and I'm just worried that everything is taking so long I hope it all works out.  My wedding date is Nov. 10, 2011.  I just looked up my trip on Expedia and saw that it was like $1,000 cheaper than booking through my agent who works for Apple Vacations.  I know for sure this is where I want my wedding I just wish it wold go a little smoother for the process. I am doing the legal ceremony so if anyone has any information or tips about this process please sent them my way.  I know that the legal process is a little more money but if I'm going to go all the way to Mexico I want the real thing.  I just want one date to remember! I have emailed the WC at Dreams so I know I have the date and I'm supposed to sign the papers this week.  Hopefully my travel agent will be more helpful in the months to come because I know she is booking lots of weddings for Dreams Resorts, maybe to many since I've been waiting forever to sign this contract!

We were married there last May.  I had Cecilia for my WC and she was great.  Once you sign the contract and tell them your locations everything else will fall into place.  But I would definitely tell them where you want your reception a.s.a.p.  There happen to be several weddings going on the day of ours and some places were already reserved.  We were scheduled to have our reception on the beach but it was SUPER windy and we had to move it inside.  We had ours inside right behind the terrace.  I was really disappointed when I found out we had to move it inside, however we didn't want sand blowing in people's food.  Lol.  And actually it turned out very nice with the beautiful table setups and lighting, etc.  We had the mariachi band first and then the DJ and it all worked out well. 

 

We opted for the microphone and speakers for our ceremony at the gazebo.  I think it was absolutely necessary the day of our wedding.  The wind was blowing so hard, nobody would have heard a word if we didn't have that.  They did tell us that it is usually not that windy, but if you want your guests to hear you saying your vows and to hear the music playing then I think you might want these.

 

Don't stress after you sign the contract.  They will not respond to your emails as fast as you want them to, I guess it is just a different pace there.  But bring all the photos you like of cakes, flowers, hair styles, makeup, etc.  We met with Cecilia for less than an hour and everything was confirmed upon our arrival.  It should be a great and relaxing experience!

 

If anyone has any other questions I might be able to help with just let me know. :)

Hi ladies I haven't signed on in a while. I have been a bit busy with all the last minute planning. A lot of changes have taken place since the last time I was on. New photographer..dj..one less bridesmaid and even a new wc :(. But I am trying to keep positive that everything will work out in the end. I am a couple weeks away and no use in driving myself crazy. Luckily I am flying my own photographer for my wedding but my ttd the dress session was booked with Juan. I have tried to contact him and nothing yet..:(( Glad to see everyone is doing well.

Ditto!  I just got an email from Cecila this week that she is going on Maternity leave.  I am know working with Guillermo!  I havent reached out to him/her very much at this point.  I hope the transition is smooth and things dont fall in the cracks.  I'm hoping its a good change, but to early to tell at this point.  I have not seen this name on this site before, so I'm guessing it is a new person.  Just like you though, trying not to stress and just fingers crossed that everything goes smoothly!  I feel like I should be further along than I am!

 

 

On another notes, has any had live music at the reception?  We are trying to find more information to see if this is a good option or if we should just go with the DJ.

I spoke to Guillermo and he is great and very efficient. I was having a hard time getting in touch with Juan and I got a phone call directly from Juan about 15 minutes after speaking to Guillermo. I am sure everything will be fine. Three weeks left..getting very excited!!woot.gif

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
