    Sunitam--did your photographer stay in the hotel? I'll have to speak to Claudia, but I'm nervous. How much was the fee?
    hi, I hired the same photographer as Kat81 from the US. He may or may not stay at Dreams but Im not being charged for a guest pass either way. I was told by Gaby that any guest of mine who is not staying at dreams doesnt have to pay for a day pass as long as they come around an hour before the ceremony so I told Cecilia that when she tried to tell me outside photographers require a pass. Like Kat said, they are a guest at your wedding and you are paying almost 50 for each extra guest for their dinner so dont pay anymore!

          You can pay the wedding package the day when you check-out. We paid by credit card, but the card company charged us $68 for currency exchange service fee. You can pay cash in USD or pesos, they accept both, and I think they take traveler's check as well.

              I am getting married Nov. 7th and have had my reception location and times changed on me. I think I may be stuck with the spa terrace as of now. I am so bummed out. I don't even think there is a view of the ocean from there and isn't that the whole reason we do destination weddings in Cancun? I feel I am being moved around due to a large wedding that is more important but I don't have that confirmed. I would be so grateful if anyone could give me pros and cons of having my reception in the spa terrace or the garden as I think these may be my only two options. I just feel the garden is so out in the open it wouldn't feel private at all and weird dancing away with so many onlookers? Or, does anyone know any other locations that I could look into that have an ocean view? By the way, we booked Dreams 17 months in advance. I am feeling a bit down...any help would be appreciated.

              Thanks.

              Hey hun, I found that review that I wanted you to see:

              this Dreams bride had her reception outside in the spa area and loved it- there are some great pictures in the review that show it off nicely. Theres a really great pic of her and her DH dancing on the water fountatin, lol.

                  I don't know if anyone has been on the Dreams Cancun website lately, but they are currently offering two promotions. Both offers include free stays - 1) every 12th person stays free 2) one complimentary room for every 15 rooms booked . I am a little upset that they don't offer this to brides based on number of people booked. My guests alone are bringing more than $50k to the resort the week of the wedding, not to mention the additional revenue from our wedding. I am definitely going to contact the resort and fight for this. Why shouldn't the bride and groom get a little extra for bringing all this business that Dreams normally wouldn't get? Most resorts offer a free room to the bride and groom with a minimum number of guests booked. What is $3k to them when they are getting over $60k? Just thought I would let everyone know in case you want to use it as a bartering tool.

                      Hey All, I too am back from Dreams and will be doing our review soon. Mrs Butler, we felt so bad for you that night, but we are happy that everything worked out for you. It seemed everyone kept their composure pretty well and the both of you looked great!!
