Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

im a little worried that there might be quite a few people who are gonna try to stay at a different cheaper hotel.. i dont know how im gonna be able to pay for all those guest passes.. how do you guys deal with people telling you i might just stay at a different hotel.

I would straight up tell them that is fine but for all guests staying at a different resort there will be a guest pass required to enter. They will just have to budget that in in their expenses. That shouldnt be your problem. That is their choice. fencing.gif

Okay please don't hold this against me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure that people can just sneak in. My FI has been to Cancun a dozen times and him and his pals just hop around to different resorts (they rent a house on the beach without a pool...). For only one day, how are they really going to know?

I swear, I am always the one trying to corrupt the forum!

She is probably right. As long as they don't check at the reception somehow.. I bet they could

The resort is small enough they get to know you.

We had only been there a day and all the staff I encountered knew I was the one getting married on Saturday.

If you try to walk down from the next resort on either side, there is security there with a clipboard with all current names.

So I would not try it.

 

I had two friends show up to drop something off and they would let them in.

So the night of the welcome dinner we paid $40 each for 4 people.

The day of the wedding they were covered in the cost of the wedding.

Paula since your such a recent bride.. Why is it that we have to pay per person if you go over 20 ppl. (ultimate package) if my guests are all inclusive since your staying in the hotel? I went to my TA yesterday and she didnt seem to agree that this is the way it works but im pretty sure i have read on here that you pay lets say the base price for the package and once you go over the 22ppl allowed you have to pay per person. Am i wrong??

The package only includes 20 people, any guests over that you pay per person. children are half price.

I think we all had a hard time initially dealing with the concept of paying for our guests to eat at an all inclusive, but you have to realize, you are not only paying for food, these fees cover the costs of having your own servers for your function and all of the setup. If you think about it, you are having a private event, which requires more staff. And the servers at our wedding were fantastic! We never had to wait for anything, anything we wanted, they were there to serve us and they were great!

What she said :)

I honestly didn't have a problem with paying extra and the whole we-are-already-at-an-all-inclusive because of the things Jill said.

 

In my head I compared it to what we would have paid anywhere here in the US and it was so inexpensive there.

 

We mainly chose Dreams because of its size, location and beautiful wedding site.

The all-inclusive was convenience the rest of the time we were there.

I totally agree with Paula and Jilly, at first I admit I went steaming ahead inviting everyone who I could think of thinking that there may be a handful out of the 40 ish guests but as it happens most of them are comming which is fab but it wasn't untill I started the ball rolling that I realised the package was only for 20 ppl, all I can say is its a good job for me that I've got plenty of time to save for all these extras LOL !
