    I'm getting married on a Friday night and really wanted the terrace so that I would not have to oay $750 for the dance floor in the sand. This is disturbing.

      I can barely comment on this because I'm getting married next Friday and am now feeling a little sick that this could interfere!  Since there has been no mention from Claudia, and since I'm sure there are plenty of Tuesday and Friday weddings at Dreams, I'm hoping that it's not actually going to be in the way. I emailed Claudia to ask her, so hopefully she will get back to me before I leave for Cancun!

       

      On to a positive: mgl27 I do arrive on Wednesday afternoon, and waiting on Claudia to confirm our meeting time, but YES! we definitely need to meet up for a cocktail. I can't believe our wedding dates finally show up on the 10 day forcast ;)

        Very excited for both of you. You will both have to let me know if it really interferes with your wedding. I am thinking that you might be right and with the amount of weddings we would have heard something in a review about this.

          Hello Everyone...I didnt mean to alarm anyone.  We received this back from Claudia and I think everything will be fine.  Wedding at the Gazebo around 4 will not be affected...but might have to move reception from terrance.  We are going to decide when we arrrive at Dreams.

           

           

           

           

          The hotel always has been having this kind of events for the entire guest, on Tuesdays we cerebrate a Mexican fiesta with a buffet and Friday’s is forCaribbean night show. Dinner starts at 7 and ends by 11 pm, the show s around 8:00 to 9:30 pm with some mariachis, Mexican dancers but not extremely loud. Your reception dinner will be from 6-9 pm, so will be almost at the end.

          By ceremony time will be no problem at all.

          The whether so far has been raining so far this last 2 weeks and when is a little chance of rain they move the show to somewhere else, so there is a chance to have it with no event beside yours. Your wedding is important to me as is for you; I’ll talk to whoever I need to talk with in order to have the place with no loud music than yours.

           

          If you want me to call you, please give me the phone where I can reach you.

          Regards!

              Yay! Thank you so much! I'm not worried at all anymore ;) Or reception will be ending around 9:30, so by the time the show starts, my group will be well into the fun dancing mode, and will probably not even notice!

                I am glad you ladies feel better.  I wish I were going earlier to be able to give all of you a first hand account.

                 

                Today I got an updated contract from Claudia - helps make it feel real.

                  Is anyone having an earlier ceremony? Ours is for 1 pm and I'm not sure what time to start the cocktail hour and reception??? We booked it back in February and when we emailed Claudia a few months ago to change it to 4 pm she said that we could not change the time because all the later times were already booked with weddings! Then when I asked to have the cocktail hour on the terrace and the reception on the beach she also told us that the terrace was already booked. Needless to say, I was not impressed.

                  I'm thinking ceremony at 1pm, pictures to follow, cocktail hour at 3 and reception from 4-7??? The kicker is we hired Juan Navarro to do our pictures and have him for 3 hours....so I have a feeling we will have to pay him for a couple extra hours to fit in part of the reception.... Ugh!

                    I am not having my ceremony early, but if I were...I think I would have the ceremony and cocktail hour together and then have the break in time before ther reception.  That way everyone is together for the ceremony and can then socialize at the cocktail hour before heading off on their own for a while.  At that point you could have the reception a bit later if you would like (more of a night-time event).  That sort of timing might also help with the photos as 3 hours could get a bit of the getting ready, the ceremony, the cocktail hour (which you could actually attend) and then you and your then husband off taking pictures for an hour.  You could even potentially move a few of the traditional reception activities (like champagne toast and cake cutting even) up to the cocktail hour for the sake of pictures.  Not sure what your vision is, but I think that is what I would do.

                    Let us know what you decide.
