Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to respond to the suggestions about the tequila... Thanks very much - it probably makes a lot of sense to just run out to the markets when we get there and grab some from a local vendor ourselves - that would save a bunch of money I'm sure - plus it would be fun !!!

 

As for Katherine's bags, they were from Dreams - they had the logo and everything - I uploaded in the "guest gift bag.zip" file. She had said she got them from her travel agent, so I would think that Claudia would be able to get them from the hotel if they still have them. Anyways... I have asked my TA, and we shall see...

Hi guys,

 

I love all the info after looking into a wedding in Dreams Cabo tammy suggested i did cancun instead for many reasons. I see alot of comments from you lovely ladies. Does anyone know what the pricing is for a 2009 wedding? Also the difference in pricing for a terrace reception as opposed to a ballroom reception??

 

PS why cant i open alot of the pics sad.gif It saids i dont have enough points NO FAIR!!

 

Thanks,

JOanna

Joanna,

 

I am in the same boat as you, even though I posted many of the docs, I can't open other people's stuff - not enough points. I sent a PM to Jill the moderator about the best ways to build up points, but I think it will come down to participating more. If you want to send me an email at:

 

hmueller19@charter.net or

hans.mueller@inbox.com

 

I will send along the docs I have. To answer your questions, I doubt 2009 prices are even being thought of yet - Dreams just released 2008 pricing so use that as a guide. With regard to location, you can use any location as part of the packages. It will depend on the size of your reception, and your preferences. The costs are the same, only the decor addons, # of meals, etc will be different depending on your size.

 

Welcome aboard !!!

Hi everyone! I am so excited to start planning! I am leaning towards Dreams Cancun, and I am so excited that there is so much information here! I am leaning towards fall of 2009 does anyone know how far in advance we would need to book? Do most people do site visits?

Welcome! I booked my date at Dreams Cancun earlier this month for November 20, 2008. It is a Thursday so I think that is why it was available. I think at least a year is good, but you never know what will be available or what will open up. When are you thinking of?

Just curious what the reasons for Dreams Cancun over Cabo are? I thought about Dreams Cabo but I did comparisons on flights from all of the locations that most of my guests will be coming from and it was more expensive for a lot of locations to fly to Cabo and about the same across the board for Cancun. Plus reviews were better overall for Dreams Cancun on TripAdvisor.

It is my impression that if you are coordinating and booking your wedding with '08 prices before '09 is even out, you'll use '08 prices. I guess Paula can confirm that for us when she gets back, she was in the same boat for arranging under 2007 prices and getting married (now!) in 2008. I think someone said it but all of the reception spots cost the same, you pay for the meals per person (starting at 20 people+ depending on if you get one of the packages).

Go welcome some newbies and get some points! Congratulations!

We are leaning towards fall of 2009. We will be coming from Massachusetts, and to be honest, when we told our families Cancun, we did not get positive reactions.

 

Its looking more & more like it will be just the two of us, although we had been hoping our parents & immediate families would come. Did anyone else have problems with families being totally against your DW?

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
