Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

His work looks very good! Well ladies I leave in the morning for Cancun so when I return I will give a full honest review. I'm a very simple person to please but can be picky when it comes to certain things. Isn't every women! I promise a full review for everyone.  It looks like it's going to be in the 80's all week so that's a start.  I never got all my questions answered and just found out 1 day ago our flight changed at the last minute so we will be split up from my brother and nieces. evil.gif Very nervous about it working out the way I planned.

Congratulations ladies! Hope you have a wonderful time and looking forward to reading reviews!

 

Have any brides done (or are you doing) the legal ceremony? If so, how does the process work with the blood testing? How does the legal ceremony differ from the symbolic? Thanks!

Hi-

 

You definitely do not need a dance floor for the Terrace!! It is perfect for dancing and a great way to save some money!!  We had the DJ (Dreams vendor) and he was amazing!! His name was Rodrigo.  I spoke with him a few times before we went down there.  He sent a sheet to be filled out (1st dance song, father/daughter song, etc.) before we arrived.  And he met us during our meeting with Claudia.  I would highly recommend using him.  We are dancing people and wanted to party and he made all that happen.  AMAZING!!!  Well worth the money!!

 

My ceremony was originally at 4, but since the weather was so crazy when we were there, Claudia had us move it up to 3:30.  The whole thing was about 35-45 minutes the symbolic).  After wards we did some group shots and then Scott and I went off for our own pictures.  The cocktail hour still started at 5pm.  But, I believe that they served drinks before that and everything was set up, they just brought the food out at about 5ish.  Scott and I were done with pictures and were able to make the last 15-20 mins of the cocktail hour.  We had the Mexican trio play for the second half, so we were able to enjoy them too.  We then flowed right into dinner/dancing.  I thought it was perfect timing and I don't think my guests were worried about standing around with nothing to do.

 

Hope this helps.  Also, I have been trying to work on my review, but I am back to work with crazy hours.  If anyone has any questions, please email me, cancunwedding10.29.11@gmail.com.  That is the best way to get a hold of me and I would be more than willing to let you know my experience or help out!!

Thanks for the responses to my last post. I have been reading through this forum and it definitely eases some of my worries that I previously had about going forward with this resort.

 

Does anyone know whether a dance floor is needed on the terrace for the reception? Also what did everyone do for music during the reception? How were the DJ services for those who purchased them? What did those of you do for music that did not have a DJ? Any helpful hints on timing of the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner and including time for pictures? Mine are currently scheduled back to back (3, 4 and 5 p.m.) I want to be sure to have enough time for pictures and I really do not want to do pictures before hand. Just not sure where pictures would fit in! If any previous brides could comment on this that would be great and very helpful!

 

Good luck to all of the brides getting married over this next week! I am looking forward to hearing your opinions and reviews on everything! 

 

Thanks so much ladies!

Hi Ladies -

 

I just got back from Cancun late last night and am back at work this morning.  I took a ton of notes while I was at Dreams, so I will have a lot to write up in a review.  But for now, know that even though there were some pretty big glitches in my wedding day, that everyone had an absolute blast.

 

I saw A LOT of weddings while I was at Dreams (most days were either 2 or 3 weddings).  So please let me know if you have any questions, because I saw a lot of different setups.  Claudia said that November & December are their busiest wedding months.  But they are slower months for tourists, so the resort isn't all that crowded - which is nice.

 

My photographer (who traveled with us and returned Tuesday night) sent a couple of teaser pics last night as a welcome home gift:

One thing I just thought of - I got my wedding video from Claudia before I left (they take 3 business days to edit, and will mail it to you if you have already left the resort).  If anyone knows of a good way to upload a 30-minute video online, I would be willing to share so you all can see what the video that is included in the Ultimate Package ends up looking like.

Thanks for answering all of my questions, it definitely helps! I think I am going to go ahead and use the DJ and also switch my ceremony time to allow more time for pictures. I was mainly worried about guests standing around waiting (while we take pictures), but it seems like they are willing to accomodate and serve drinks before then, which is good to hear!

 

May I also ask how your experience was with the symbolic ceremony? We are still debating between the symbolic and the legal. Thanks!

    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)
