Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

we used a travel agent and that helped us out so much. she put together different packages for people who wanted to stay 3, 5, and 7 days. that also cut the cost of OUR trip in half! i think 75% of my guests are going through a travel agent, and the rest went through a website. goodluck! smile29.gif

We also have about 90 guests coming and didnt even give the option for them to stay at another resort. The whole point for us to have the destination wedding was for everyone to be on vacation together in the same place. Plus day passes are so expensive that if you have everyone stay at different resorts it would cost an arm and a leg.

 

Our TA gave our guests many different options for their length of stay plus land or air only (some people have miles). Booking a TA was the first thing I did, and I am so glad....she is like having a second coordinator. Any time I cant get in touch with Daniella she calls her and we get an answer right away!!!!

Thank you to everyone for posting such great information! I am new to this site and have not yet decided on our location but we are leaning towards Dreams Cancun or Moon Palace. Like everyone else I love Dreams Cancun gazebo and options for the reception!! It seems that there may be some hidden/unclear fees and I would be curious if anyone has any input after getting married here. Were there any major surprises with the bill?

 

I was also wondering if you had any thoughts on Dreams Cancun versus Dreams Tulum?

 

Thanks again for all of the helpful information- this site is amazing to have come across! Congratulations to everyone!

Hello,
I was married at dreams cancun about a month ago. As far as surprise fees, I don't think there were really any surprises when I finalized the bill, but there was definetly a lot of things I didn't really think about when planning that you do have to pay for, that I guess you may not think of initially, nothing too crazy, for example, if you want the gazebo decorated, thats extra depending on what you want, the chair bows are extra, even the white chair covers are extra. But that not any different than every other resort.

As far as differences between dreams cancun & tulum, I don't know very much about tulum, but the major reason why I didn't consider it, was the distance from the airport. I had a lot of guests coming down for 3-4 days and I didn't want them to spend hours in a van travelling to the resort. Dreams cancun is only about 20-30 minutes from the airport.

What the going rate for taxi's returning to that airpot from Dreams? I've always taken a green line bus to my hotel and a taxi back. How much is the going rate for green line vans?

the meal in the package, is not a buffet, it's a sit down and its for up to 20 people. Any people over 20 you have to pay additional, children are half price.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
