About 2 weeks before we were leaving, Claudia emailed me and said the terrace was available for my cocktail hour. I almost think she had me booked in the whole time and messed up. We ended up having our cocktail hour in the terrace at 2 pm and our reception on Caribe Beach (next to the gazebo) at 4 pm. I looooved the reception! It was the most fun ever! All of our guests absolutely loved it as well! I was a little apprehensive at first, not knowing if sand was going to be blowing into our food, etc. But it was a pretty calm night, and perfect weather. If I did it all over, I would absolutely have my reception on Caribe Beach. It's also quite private as it's such a big beach. Had it been crappy out, we would've had to move the party into one of the ballrooms. It rained the day before and 2 more days after our wedding so we were extremely fortunate. However, I think no matter what you are always taking a risk with the weather and the chance that you may have to have your ceremony and/or reception inside. I would try not to stress too much over it, although I know how frustrating it can be. I hope this helps and just know that no matter where you end up having it, it will be beautiful and you will have the time of your life! Here are a few pictures of our reception...

I am so excited for you! I can't wait to hear all the details. How are your out of town bags coming? Did you decide to do them when  you get there? If you wanted to keep it simple you get order these and get them in on time. I think they are great. They are $10 a piece...I think it is a great steal!!

Hi all!  I am getting married on June 1st!  My wedding is at 6:30 pm and I'm hoping it won't be unbearably hot... Are there any past brides on here that got married in the June time frame last year?

That second picture is defintely not from Dreams Cancun.  I just checked out the Blue Lens website and it is from Dreams Riviera Cancun.  Regardless, the photos are very nice.

I'm next!! We leave in 19 days, our wedding is on the 22nd!!! So so so excited!  I have read so many great reviews not only from past brides on here but also from other travel sites so I'm sure everything will work out fine. I was slightly annoyed with that new terrace policy as well- regardless of where our guests are staying, we should be allowed to use that location; I have 60 guests coming with me so I know I have brought in alot of money for the resort. I think they should consider that before they piss off anymore brides!! But regardless of the location, we'll be in Cancun with all the people that are important to us so really how could it be anything but awesome!!? Even if it rains on my wedding day I'm going to appreciate every moment :)

I know its so close! I'm having nightmares every night now, so weird, I didn't think I was stressed but maybe I am haha! I keep having dreams that I forget my wedding band, my dress, I miss my flight... good grief!!

 

Anyways, I have a question for anyone who got their hair done at the spa. When should I schedule my appointment on the wedding day?? My ceremony starts at 4 and I feel so clueless about this. I don't really know how the day will unfold and I dont want to be rushed but I also dont want to have my hair done too early and then it fall out by the time of the ceremony. I guess I'm just curious as to what other brides did on their wedding day? When I've been apart of wedding parties in the past they have been so casual so I just don't know what to expect...

 

Also if anyone has the spa email address could you post it please? I remember seeing it a while ago but can't remember if it was on here or not

 

Thanks so much!

Here is the spa email address that worked for me. 
spa1.drecu@dreamsresorts.com

 

If I remember correctly, it took about 2.5 hours to do my hair and makeup!  It took that long because the stylist did a lot of re-curling of the same sections to make sure it looked good.  I think estimating 1.5-2 hours would be smart.  My hair was up (you can check the pictures in my signature to see what style I had) and it did not move all day/night as the hair spray they use is some serious stuff.  I was done at the salon around 11:30am and my hair was no different when I took out all the pins at ~1:30am.  If you want a style with your hair down and curls, then you may have more issues with the curls falling out.

 

As for when to schedule your appointment - make sure to give yourself plenty of time to get ready (dressed) so you aren't stressing.  You may think you would hate to be sitting around twiddling your thumbs waiting for the ceremony, but let me assure you it doesn't happen this way.  There is always something or someone that will take up that extra time.
