    The Dreams Cancun brides that have reported back said they do not come and start cleaning up strictly at 9:00 (if that's when your reception is 'scheduled' to end). If your reception is in the terrace, there is a bar there anyways and your guests can drink and dance all they want. I don't know what exact time they will end up coming to clean up the tables but I believe for both Jill and Paula, they didn't see them and after awhile, people head to the bar anyways.

    My question is - Do any of y'all know his name - and have you used him or do you have a link to his work?

    My worry is - I've read throughout this forum of Dreams Cancun brides who have used their own photographer and been very happy with their choice. So I'm not sure why I'm getting grief or does everyone?

    Thanks for following me!

    His website is: Juan Navarro ... Photographer

    I was going to use him, his photos aren't the greatest in the world but they are very, very decent. So far, we have NO review of him from a BDW bride. I ended up choosing to go with Cecilia Dumas because she is affordable and I loved the samples she has sent me and the ones that are on her website. AND, she is more responsive, it is frustrating that Juan doesn't get back to you. He popped up here on the forum once but then dissapeared. Here is Cecilia's website: Wedding photography | Cecilia Dumas, Cancun y Riviera Maya | Imagenes de Bodas

      Is this true even at lunch or are these restaurants not open for lunch? Do they have to wear slacks or kahki type pants or are jeans okay? I'm going to have to add this to a pre-wedding e-mail!

        Hi, I am from NYC too.

        The quote I got from my TA is like $320 per night, group rate (9 or 10 rooms more) in August 2009. However, I only have approximate 20 people. Hope that gives you some idea about budgeting!

        p.s. July and August are pretty much about the same price range as far as I saw.

            I am bringing a photographer from Dallas. His name is Jeremy and he is really great. When I get back I will post all my pictures. You could contact him for a quote. Here is his site Wedding and Portrait Photography by Jeremy Gilliam Dallas TX

              Okay, so i just talked to my uncle who goes to AI resorts every year and he was asking about dinner reservations. I guess at some places you have to make reservations for dinner days beforehand?? And sometimes you have to stand in line for hours? Is Dreams like this? If so, how does that work for people who are only coming in for a few days? Are they stuck eating at a buffet? Someone help please!!

                dreams is actually great with this.. no reservations needed, and you can eat wherever u want.. the most we waited for anything was maybe an hour, and even then it wasnt a big deal , we just had drinks at the bar... :-)

                      $320 is the per day room rate for 2 pple occupancy.
