Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the replies ladies. I'm not worried about the wind, was just curious if anybody noticed it was different earlier in the day. We're still mulling over the ceremony time, but we weren't too worried about it being too hot for a noon ceremony since our wedding is in January and the avg daily temp at that time of year is 78-82. We vacationed there in April/May 2008 and at that time of year it was 87 or 88 everyday...pretty toasty!

 

At the moment, we are thinking day wedding, then either hang out at the bars at night or hit a club as the party part of the reception since we don't know that we'll have that many people interested in dancing to justify paying for a dj & dancefloor, but guess it will depend on how many guests confirm that they are coming...that could sway our decision :)

Hi Everyone,

 

I want to say congrats on your upcoming marriages at Dreams Cancun. I was recently married there (2 weeks ago to be exact - April 20, 2010). Everything was perfect and Claudia was amazing to work with and made our day even more special than we had ever expected.

 

I would recommend the speakers for the ceremony as it adds to the overall feel and romance of getting everything started. There is a technician that is available, you just have to give him the songs you would like played and let him know when to play them during the ceremony.

 

We took our own photographer and videographer from home and didn't use the one offered in the package so unfortunately I can't comment on that.

 

We originally wanted our reception on the Caribe Beach, but it was a bit windy and chilly in the evenings so we moved it to the Club Terrace and it was great. Everyone was really impressed with the set up. The terrace stays open so guests can still go outside, the terrace is right over the beach and you get a great view of the Gazebo.

 

The minister was Gino and he was great, spoke perfect English and brought laughter and tears to our eyes during the ceremony. Would highly recommend him. The civil ceremony is about 30 minutes. Ours was a bit longer because we said our own vows and also had a reading from the Bible.

 

For the hair and makeup, I would highly recommend that you go to the spa knowing exactly what you would like done and give them as much direction as possible. Also take your own makeup. They used my make up and wanted to use some of their own to give me that extra special look but I was very disappointed, I looked really made up when I had wanted a very natural look. I'm hoping our photographer can work his magic so the photos don't look like I have too much on. Give yourself a lot of time for the hair and make up. I had mine scheduled at 9 am, and was supposed to be finished by 11 am at the latest but didn't get out until noon-ish and was in a rush to get dressed for the photos before the ceremony.

 

Otherwise, it was a perfect day and I wouldn't change a thing (except the make up). Claudia was amazing and I really can't thank her enough.

This is a trash the dress recently blogged about by Dreams' own blogger and it was Dreams Cancun. Juan was their photographer. Very nice! However, I do notice now that he used some of the same poses for everyone (drawing heart in the sand). I wouldn't mind, because I'm only going to have my pics, but in case any of you do.

Peterpanpixiedust..you beat me to it! I was just about to post about the TTD pics posted on the Dreams Cancun Facebook, so if any of you out there are not a fan yet of Facebook, do so...Dreams said that in the coming weeks they will be posting more wedding pics. Hopefully pics with the new gazebo so we can all get a better idea how it looks. I was also told by my WC (Cecilia) that they will be remodeling the terrace area in June, so I'm looking forward to pics of this later this summer since I'm planning my reception there.

I received the dance floor at $700 for free for not using the photographer. $300 seems very minimal since the photographer cost is $800. I am getting married June 8th...I'll be sure to post a review when I can

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
