Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

Hey Girls,

 

Does anyone know if you can use your own speakers for the ceremony?

 

We were planning on taking an IPOD and our own little speakers and askin my brother to play the songs etc....is this possible??

 

We have the dj for the evening, so it is just for the ceremony.

 

Thanks

When I asked for the dance floor, she said she could not provide anything that they did not own (I think Mannia actually owns the dance floor)in exchange. She told me that technically, the photography/videography cost is way less than it actually is when it is in the package, because you are getting so much for so little. I thought that was a lousy exchange, so I decided to use the credit toward an an extra hour of video and bring my own photographer. So now I have two hours (which most girls tell me he will shoot for with the ultimate package anyway, so I am going to see if I can get him longer without paying when I get there (I'll leave the WC and Miguel-Michael both nice tips first :-D).

Starfish bride, when did you receive that offer? It looks like you just joined here a few months ago. I was told this when I first started planning a few months ago. If she told you yes and me no, I am going to sick my TA on her! So far my TA has gotten me my site visit and my corrected contract (Claudia got my reception times wrong slighty) when Claudia was taking months to reply.

Oh, and I will be there in June. In case the Terrace is done by then, I'll take pics! I'll take a whole slew of pics as long as my camera holds!

Hi ladies...i was wondering if anyone can answer a question i have. I wanted to know if it's possible to have a trash your dress with Juan Navarro if you don't use him for the wedding. I am bringing my own photographer from home and was just wondering if this is possible to have that with Juan at no extra cost? I have the ultimate package so if i am not mistaken it's included..right? Thanks in advance!

Yes! I'm doing the same, Cecilia said it was no problem to have Juan come by on a different day for my TTD instead. You only get him for an hour or so, this is what's included as free in the package.

For non-urgent questions, it can take up to 5weeks. For urgent questions, like reserving the date, it should take less than 2 weeks, and if you haven't heard back, try calling them. Since your wedding is next year, you're probably not on the top of her to do list, there are about 5-10 weddings a week in the spring/summertime!

Thank you! I sort of figured its really a bit too early. Im just wanting to get a good time frame so that I can have everything prepared when I finally get to talk to the coordiantor.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
