Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

 

Thank you so much! I just wanted to say I didn't have any issues with bugs either and I would highly recommend Himitsu beach for your reception; it is smaller and more intimate and it is sheltered from the wind unlike the other beach. At Himitsu your reception will be quite close to the restaurant and just a few steps from the walking path so your grandma won't have to walk far at all. The beach is also close to the pyramid so if your guests are staying in that part of the hotel,they won't have far to go.

 

 

 

Awesome thank you! I just reserved himitsu beach :)

Are table decorations at Dreams really priced outrageously? I assume so since so many brides are bringing their own all the way to Mexico. The thought of transporting that stuff along with all the other wedding paraphernalia makes me cringe (do I sound like a total wimp?). Do the wedding coordinators send you the options beforehand or do you have to wait for your meeting AT Dreams a couple of days before the wedding to see what is offered and prices? 

 

Can you tell that my wedding is getting close and I'm starting to stress out a bit? ;)

 

Also, the WC has only sent me my contract so far for my May wedding. In addition to the table decoration options, do the WCs  send you ANY of the option details in advance (flowers, music options) or do you have to wait til you get there to see your options and pricing?

 

I just want to know what to expect.  I was really hoping to work through some of the details to see what will fit into my budget BEFORE we get there in case I have to compensate with some DIY.

 

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

I don't really have any info yet but all brides say everything works out perfectly and not to stress so I'm trying not to xxxx

orchid centerpiece.jpgOk guys. I have some tips. My wedding is there on April 6, 2012. There is a past Dreams bride that brought some tall cylinder glass vases there and I asked Claudia about them and she is not charging to use them. All I am bringing in my suitcase is fake green orchids and a flaoting candle for each centerpiece. I am also bringing 25 starfish with me. I will leave the 25 starfish with Claudia for any of you brides to use while you are there. I will also leave the green orchids behind as well. Here is what my centerpieces will look like but with GREEN orchids.

 

PS this is a really tall vase in the picture. The actual vase is half the size lengthwise.

I am tying the place setting names to them with a ribbon. Depending what your colors are I could leave the ribbon behind too. The ribbon is thin and an orange color.

I got married at dreams last year- please check out my add for all of my used table linens and chair sashes, bride groom passport covers, starfish, lanyards, welcome postcards and room key holder cards. I just looking to get rid of all of it to the same person to avoid shipping everything separately and I know that only someone getting married in Mexico will want this stuff bc the postcards say Mexico! Fuchsia, lime green, and bright orange linens. Look at the add for pics! Happy to answer any questions anyone has about dreams also! Anything I can do to help any future dreams brides!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
