Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Hi Knorris27,

 

Thanks for your input I really appreciate it! I have emailed you, I'd love to see your photos, especially as they are so recent, If you have any other advice it would be greatfully received, what was your time scale on the day and how did it work out for you ? Have you posted a reveiw yet, I havn't seen it ? x

For those that used the IPOD, I read on one of the posts that the battery died quickly. Is it possible to bring a charger and plug it in to the electrical outlet that the sound equipment is using? Would we need to bring a power strip (for addl outlets).

 

Thanks!

we brought our own docking station and plugged it in, our docking station charges the IPOD while its on, so we didn't have any problems with dying batteries.

Jilly,

 

In regards to your docking station that you brought - how big is it? How did you bring it down? Would you mind sharing the model so that we can check it out? Do you know how many watts (how loud) it is? Was it loud enough for the wedding in hindsight?

 

We are trying to figure out what to do for music. We are going to get the soundsystem for the ceremony, but the thought of paying $180 per hour just to plug our IPOD in for the reception seems like a lot of money. If we go your route, at least we have a sound system to use at home in the backyard or for parties...

 

Thanks,

H&V

Is anyone thinking about getting married at Dreams Cancun on the beach or will you stick with the Gazebo? We are contemplating this idea.....looks so nice with the huppah (sp?)......Claudia sent me the attached price/picture list.

we bought the altec lansing IM7. It is about 1 1/2- 2 feet long and its rounded, so it fit in our carryon suitcase very well. I think it was loud enough for us, we had about 25 people so we were in a confined area, but it was plenty loud enough.

we had the same thought about having the docking station and the IPOD for at home, it seemed better to spend the money on that stuff and be able to use it again at home rather than spend 180 an hour on the setup at dreams, which to me seems like a ripoff.

On the bags, funny - I know that another bride (Katherine I think) had gotten bags from the hotel or her travel agent did. I sent the picture back to Claudia, and to our travel agent, to ask if they still have them and how to get them...

On the tequila - seems VERY pricey... We could get it here for much less - but how to get it therehuh.gif? There has got to be another way, maybe just buy it when you get there.

Steel drum band - We checked out both websites - but neither seems like a steel drum band. I know she quoted us a band a while back - not sure who she had in mind. This is the reason for our Caribbean Trio question today.

On the rehearsal dinner - We have heard multiple stories on this from other brides. It all seems to depend on party size - so I asked for more clarification. Anybody heard anything about the "Adult Only" bit at the end?

Wedding time - I know its summer - but this seems VERY late in the day. Sunset seems to be around 7:30 in July, so maybe not - what are everyone's thoughts on this?

Just as an FYI - we have the Ultimate package, to put the menu questions in context...

Translation time - seems very short (1 week)huh.gif Anyone heard otherwise?

Attachments - she sent a bunch - if anyone wants any, please let me know your email and I will send along...

We have older questions that I will post as well, just for info purposes...
Hi hmueller! I'm gettting married in November and have tried to contact Claudia..you all have been so helpful! I was wondering if you could e-mail me the attachments she sent you...also could you e-mail me your pics from secrets capri? We're staying there for our honeymoon. Thanks so much!!! adamskristi@hotmail.com

Hi Lucy....I tried to attach it but it didnt work - PM me your email address and I can send it to you!

In the Q&A it says if you have Guest favors delivered to the rooms:

Delivered to the guest rooms - There is a $4 usd charge per room for delivery

Hope this helps!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
