Andim, you two look great! As all have stated, I can't wait for the review. P.S. I just went on to the MOTM thread, and I saw my name there, and I wanted to thank whoever nominated me! I really feel that you all have helped me so much more than I can dream to help you. I wish we could all meet up one day!

 

Happy 4th!

Sooo here I go... I recently got back from Dreams Cancun where my wedding was supposed to be! As soon as I arrived to Dreams Resort I was greeted with much kindness. I expected to hear from Claudia a day after I arrived which I did not. So I contacted her myself. Our appointment was made for the next day at 10 am. My husband and I arrived on time and waited 45 min. for Claudia to show up. Once she did we went into the business center and got our wedding details squared away. Our rehearsal was Sat 6/26 @ 3pm. We all showed up but the rain started to pour (Hurricane Alex) .. So she stated the wedding would have to be moved inside the next day which was no problem.. She gave me 3 options to where I could have my ceremony. First one was in the lobby where they would make it private just for me and my 65 guests. The second one was the Himitsu restaurant where they would clear out for our wedding party as well. Lastly, was the nightclub which was an absolute NO! So we decided on the lobby which we thought would look pretty because of all the different colors.. So we did our run through with Claudia no where to be found. She came and stated we can no longer have it in the lobby. So then we chose Himitsu she then stated no for that as well. So I asked her what my other options were. She told me the only option they have is the nightclub!! I was horrified!!! I asked her to speak to a manager. Let me tell you apparently Dreams Resort managers will not come out and talk to guests!!!! So I told her I would like my entire invoice refunded back which they agreed to. I would not receive that until Monday because of there accounting department. So I told her thats not a problem I will need something in writing. She finally provided me with the written form. So right after that I went searching for a hotel who would accommodate my needs. Krystal hotel ended up accepting my offer which was amazing. I saved $4000 by having it there and it turned out fantastic!!! ALMA is amazing and actually has her own office can you believe that the wedding coordinator has her own office hahahha!!! Everything was included from DJ MANANA to a 5 course meal!!! Our friends and family were so pleased...

 

P.S. For those who were discussing how dreams over booked there rooms due to expedia is wrong.. I had 10 guests moved to hyatt and they booked through my travel agency 6 months in advance!!!! They absolutely had the worst customer service!!!

I am really sorry to hear that minasian34. After all the planning we do thats the last thing you want to happen.

 

I'm wondering if anyone else booked at Dreams Cancun is feeling this way. I'm trying to work out my proposal with Cecilia the WC and its like shes not willing to work with me. I don't want a religious ceremony and she said whatever we get is what we get for a minister. There are other things I'd rather trade for something and she says no. Everyone says shes so sweet but shes hard to deal with over email. My fiance really wanted a destination wedding and I thought I did too until I started planning. Its hard for me to take all the uncertainty and hoping my day turns out the way I'd hoped. Does anyone else feel this way?

I am so sorry you had to go through that, but it seems that everything happens for a reason b/c it sounds like you still had an amazing time.

My guests also ran into an overbooking problem. They booked months in advance and everyone was asked if they could possibly move to Hyatt. I think they were even leaving notes under doors saying that if they'd move they would get 3 free nights some other time. I don't know how that happened. My brother was on the phone with his TA for most of my wedding week because there was some huge mixup. Thank god it worked out okay and we got day passes for those staying at other hotels. It all worked out okay in the end, but Dreams should definitely fix that problem- it's really nerve wrecking.

On a brighter note, congrats!!!!!!!! Enjoy married life!

    • 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!
