Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts


We are having 50-60 guests and don't plan to do the cocktail hour...we are using the same approach that you did.  Did they swap 1 cocktail hour guest for 1 dinner?   Or did they just give you a partial credit for not using the cocktail hour?

My husband and I didn't miss anything while we were taking pictures. Also, we were still able to have a plated dinner. The only thing I would suggest with that is get rid of the dessert.. We didn't but ended up asking our DJ to move forward before it was served.

Did any of your bridesmaids get hair and makeuo at the spa? I am wondering if they use MAC makeup?

We had our hair done but nobody had make up done. I loved my hair! It was better than I ever thought! I was a little nervous because they do not speak much English... But it was awesome!

Oh oh. I have some pictures of my makeup but I need to make sure they do not use a lot of black liner like they have in pic.

I did and I think it was worth it. I don't think the make-up they use is mac but I personally liked my make-up. It was more dramatic then I could ever do on my own which is good for your pictures.

My fiance and I are planning to ask our guests to meet us for a cocktail/informal meet & greet prior to dinner on the two days that most of our guests arrive.  Everyone is arriving at different times and we want to make sure that we see everyone prior to the wedding.  It looks like our options are Barracuda Bar or Rendezvous Bar.  We are leaning towards Barracuda.  Does anyone have an opinion as to which would be best?  Thanks!!

I would choose the Rendezvous Bar.

 

The Barracuda Bar is an outdoor bar in the shape of a square with counter all the way around, so it would be hard to get a group to mingle.

The Rendezvous Bar is the indoor lobby bar that has good seating and space for mingling and has an outdoor patio area that would be perfect if you could take that space over.

Trying really hard not to freak out. The weather in Cancun for my wedding is Thunderstorms and more clouds than sun! I am soooooo bummed.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
