    Hi Briannarae23,

     

    I wanted to ask about the rooms at Dreams. I am in the process of choosing between Now Jade and Dreams Cancun, but I am nervous my guest will notl ikethe dated rooms. How was your experience?

    We loved the resort! We stayed in the honeymoon suite- it was 2 stories, plenty of room, huge bathroom for me and the bridesmaids to get ready in, and a gorgeous room! Didn't bother me one bit that the rooms weren't as up to date as other places. We had a great wedding and a great vacation!

      And none of the guests cared one bit- the ones who spent a little extra to upgrade from the garden view. We were hardly in the rooms anyways, and it's not like they are gross, just not "luxurious"

        I am not sure I agree about the dated rooms. We wnt for a site visit and we loved the rooms we thought they were gorgeous bright clean and cheerful.

          I agree too, I think the rooms were great, very clean and roomy. I don't think there is bad room to get at Dreams, they all have either a view of the ocean or they overlook the dolphins. I guess they are simple but I wonder what people are expecting the rooms to have that would make them better? You're in Mexico, who spends a ton of time in their room is what I'd like to know! haha

There is a past Dreams bride that brought some tall cylinder glass vases there and I asked Claudia about them and she is not charging to use them. All I am bringing in my suitcase is fake green orchids and a flaoting candle for each centerpiece. I am also bringing 25 starfish with me. I will leave the 25 starfish with Claudia for any of you brides to use while you are there. I will also leave the green orchids behind as well. Here is what my centerpieces will look like but with GREEN orchids.

               

              PS this is a really tall vase in the picture. The actual vase is half the size lengthwise.



               



               


              That is good to know that we will not have to pay to use the vases !

               


              Happily married and now Mrs. West

                Mac makeup is the best. Do any of you know what the Dreams makeup artists use? I hope it is Mac. I just bought a ton of Mac makeup just in case.

                  Our guest list is growing! I was hoping to keep it at or below 40, but we're at 38 with several "probably"s. I was kind of bummed out because this means we won't get to have a plated dinner, but after reading some of the posts in here...it sounds like the advantage of having a buffet dinner is there are more options.

                   

                  For those of you who chose to swap out the cocktail hour for more guests at dinner, were you happy with your decision? I read somewhere else in this thread that the guests can just go hit up a bar somewhere at the resort until the dinner reception begins. What do you ladies think?

                   

                  XO,

                    We had 44 guests and swapped our cocktail hour for dinner.. It worked out perfect. All of our guests went to a bar and hung out until it was time for the reception. My husband and I didn't miss anything while we were taking pictures. Also, we were still able to have a plated dinner. The only thing I would suggest with that is get rid of the dessert.. We didn't but ended up asking our DJ to move forward before it was served.

                      I agree with Briannarae...the rooms are not "luxurious", and I personally do think they could use a little updating...but are absolutely clean and comfortable with amazing views. We did a site visit last fall and stayed at Dreams, The Royal, Beach Palace and I must say, the bed at Dreams was the most comfortable and the room we stayed in had an unobstructed view of the sea (due to the hotel's unique location). We loved that. From my limited experience, the other hotels had views of the hotel pool and the beach and sea beyond that (if that makes sense). Anyway...hope this helps along with the other girls' input :)
