Leigh - Thank you for the information. I remember a bride goign to WalMart. Does anyone know if they carry food/ how hard it is to get there.

You can find all the candy you can find in the US in Mexico at walmarts/ 7/11/ and Oxxo's. It may be a little more expensive (by .25 cents) but it may save you having to worry about it melting or give you room to pack other things.

Hi girls! I just returned from having my wedding at Dreams Cancun and it was absolutely gorgeous! Everything went so perfect & Claudia was amazing! I used the resorts photographer (daniel) and the pictures are breathtaking of us, family and wedding party. I will post some of them once I figure out how to on here, lol.

Hi! I am getting married at Dreams Cancun January 6  2013. Any body have any info on length of reception? Claudia was telling me my reception would be from 5-8 and I am freaking out!

The reception is 3 hours. From there you can pay for an extra hour of reception ($$ for DJ, for Drinks and for Reception for each guest) to push 1 extra hour. I am doing dinner from 6-9 (Reception). Giving everyone an hour to freshen up, then the youger (And older if they so choose) crowd will head to desires to finish the celebration there. :) Free DJ and Drinks!. Also this gives everyone some time to freshen up, as well as time alone for the future hubby and me. Just a thought... but your call. A lot of brides on this forum said they were given the extra hour free. I think it depends on how busy the hotel, and stuff...

 

Hope this helps.

The standard length is 3 hours.  You can extend it to 4 hours but it will cost you - I believe you have to pay the DJ (if you have one) for an extra hour and there is a per person fee for the waiters to keep bringing the drinks.

 

The timing for my wedding day:

Ceremony 4:30 to 5:00 pm

Cocktail hour 5:30 to 6:30 pm

Reception 6:30 to 9:30pm

 

The reception starting at 6:30pm seemed early to me, but considering that the official time for sun set on my wedding day was ~5:05pm, it was plenty dark and had the night time feel.

I know! Congratulations!! Time will fly. I am freaking out because we hit 6 months, but even worse, we are buying a house in 4 months. So i am overwhelmed with both. Have you gotten forms from either Claudia or Cecilia with 'options'?

 

I am trying to figure out what exactly i have to figure out. I know that sounds redundant but I feel a bit lost at the moment!!

 

Thanks..

    • 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.
