Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

for the hotel (flight doesn't matter, as I am going this year and got my tickets the first week they were avail for 375 roundtrip after taxes. I just want to get an idea for hotel because I've seen them range from $230-$600 (yikes on anything above the lowest....lol)

 

Also, what if you want a rehersal but not necessarily a dinner? Do they charge you to do a test run the day before? (as long as there is an available slot). I want to see how to space my girls' and my walk down the aisle during the song (I'm using one song that is long instead of many songs that get cut off in the middle). I want to walk down during the culminating part :-D

there's no charge for the rehersal...we're doing ours and then going to one of the restaurants for dinner.

as for the hotel rates...do not book directly with the resort!! I would definately recommend TA Jill from this site. I started out with a local TA and he sucked!! TA Jill has been awesome to work with and she has amazing prices!!

I third the advice for TA Jill. It's so nice having someone else deal with all of the booking stuff instead of having our guests calling me to ask questions. She's even able to arrange transportation between the hotel and airport which I'm not entirely sure the hotel does if booking through them.

Did everyone book a specific time for their rehearsal already?

I'd like to do something after the rehearsal with family but I don't really want to have to pay for another meal, did everyone just go to one of the restaurants?

I would recommend a TA but people have gotten banned from this website for soliciting other TA's unless they are a TA that are a part of this forum. I would suggest no one recommend anyone unless you want to be banned.

Thanks guys! To answer someone's comment... if you book directly through the resort (it takes you to an off site booking area), they do provide airport transfer, but the entire package is ridiculously expensive and like everyone said, probably a much better idea to book with a TA from here. Nice to know about the rehearsal (5 weeks until my site visit!!!)

Thanks ladies, you're all very sweet! I just hope that I've been able to make things easier on you. I know guests will still always contact the bride and groom with questions, but hopefully it's a little bit less knowing they can contact me to get some of their questions answered too!

    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • 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
