    Deep breaths - you have plenty of time.  But that is fantastic that most of your family has already booked so you know those most important to you will be there...

      I love the buttons and zipper on it, but i actually bought mine used (a SUPER price) and because it was tight, i went ahead and had a corset put into it.  I could zip it, but all i could think about was being on vacation for 5 whole days before the wedding, trying to starve myself for that dress instead of enjoying my vaca! So a corset it is! That way i won't have to worry about that:) can't wait to see the review and professional pics with the dress in it!

      I think the corset will look fantastic.  I will plan on sticking with the buttons just to make using the little girls' room a bit easier!!  With a mermaid dress like that, there will be no hiking it up....

        Hola fellow Allure 8705 brides...just wanted to let you know that the dress photographed beautifully in the professional pics! We got an email from the Juan Navarro team yesterday and we are sifting through the over 900 pics they took to pic the 50 we want in the album we get with the Ultimate Wedding Package at Dreams.  I also want to thank all the previous Dreams Cancun/Juan Navarro brides for the info on getting a cd of all the pictures from them.  All the previous brides said they would offer a cd for $400-$500, but that everybody got them down to $300.  Well, they did in fact offer me $400, I countered with $300 and they accepted!  Thanks ladies for the tip!

         

        As for those of you with Allure 8705 thinking about altering it to a sweetheart neckline..I have attached a pic that a friend took on her phone at the reception that shows the neckline so you can get an idea of how it looks.  I thought it made a world of difference in the appearance of the dress!

         

        @clgriffi7: As for the bathroom issue... I had the alterations dept leave just a hint of room in the hip allowing me to pull the dress up just a bit to be able to sit down for dinner and that also allowed me to shift the dress up enough to use the restroom without having to take the whole thing off. I just needed 2 of my gals to come with me and hold all the ruffles, but it can totally be done...if you're not too shy, haha!  :)

          Thanks for the info.  That would suck for stuff not to get there.

           

          Do you know if customs is as strict about what you can bring with you in your luggage?  For example, I read somewhere you can mail food, but could I bring small packaged snacks for the OOT bags?

          @coones...I would try pack everything.  I brought my dress as a carry-on on the plane, if you fold it in half, it fits in the overhead compartment with no problems.  Any extra stuff I'd try pack in your luggage or give some to friends and family to try pack if you have too much.  We did a legal marriage ceremony and I had to mail copies of our birth certificates and passports to our wedding coordinator a month before our wedding.  I mailed the documents via USPS International Express mail, they should've arrived in 5-8 business days, but they didn't get there until 3 weeks later!  Anything you ship internationally has to go through customs and they have some rules about what can be shipped, so if they see something they don't allow, your package may not make it, or it may get there too late for your wedding!

           

          Once my review is posted, I put a message on here about how to find it on this site!

              @coones: snacks in your luggage may get taken when you go through customs.  I don't know all the rules for sure, but I'm sure you could do a Google search online about what is or is not allowed when passing through Mexican Customs.

               

              @briannarae23: beer at the bars was always served in a cup/glass from what I remember.  The only bottles of beer I remember at the resort are in the mini-fridge in each room.  It is stocked with bottles of Corona, but they are small bottles, not standard size.  They actually say "Coronita" on the bottle for "small Corona.  For our wedding favor, we did customized shot glasses from Cancun 2011 cont 051.JPG

                Hi Rudebaga!

                 

                I just have a question for you about how it is going with Juan's team?  I was married on the 5th of January and bought the higher up package where I get 400 digital pictures and a bunch of other sized ones for the album and left the package that comes with the Dreams ultimate and the 50 pictures for my trash the dress.  Anyways they got the proofs back to me by email right away and then I choose the numbers that I wanted and sent it back to Juan and haven't heard anything back from him for 2 weeks even though I have sent a few emails.  I'm still not even sure how it works, are they going to come in the mail?

                    Hello all!  I have been reading the reviews, and have gotten some AMAZING ideas so thank you!  We are planning a May 28, 2012 wedding so still have plenty of time, but have a HUGE question.  My mother is disable..... how far is a bathroom from either the Himitisu beach or the gazebo and that beach? I emailed Cecilia but know that since the wedding is like 15 months away my questions aren't priority, and I'm okay with that.

                     

                    Thanks!!

                      and, my FI was looking at the dreams website and had a question:  next to Mini bar in the room description it has $$.  Is the mini bar in the room not included in the all inclusive?  But the beer in the fridge is?  LoL i know its  not important but he's a guy and wants to know:) thanks!!!
