Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts

i think you can have anyone you want officiate if it is only symbolic. i know for a fact a friend of mine had her brother officiate at dreams CABO for their symbolic ceremony, so i imagine the same can be said for cancun. i think the only thing they might question is the length of your ceremony (since they'd have no control over that if they didn't provide the officiant) because there might be other weddings on your date. i would still send the question to claudia to get the approval in writing (even tho the answer might take weeks).

ok I take my statement about the pigeon back Claudia responded to me the NEXT day! I almost fell over in my seat! LOL

 

The answer is yes! you can have anyone you'd like officiate for a symbolic wedding!   Im very excited about that.  My future Brother in Law will be doing our Ceremony which is a relief because I know he will do a great job!  2 weeks and 1 day till I become a Mrs.  YAY!  cheer2.gif

We are using my fiance's father who is also a deacon and Claudia is giving me a trade out for not using their minister. We are getting an hour free of the music equipment for the appetizers and cocktails.

Yup my day , Opps i mean OUR day hehe,  is almost here!!! :)

 

I was wondering, I hear of past brides being able to "trade" things. Like Chipotle99 in your case when should I ask about "trading" things?   

At our first meeting? or thru emails?

Mrs. Timpone, 

I traded stuff through email with Claudia, so far she has been fine with everything (we traded cocktail hour for extra guests at dinner). I don't think it will matter when you trade, I feel like they are used to it and have a standard for what you can trade etc. 

Hope that helps!

I did trade with Claudia over e-mail.  She gave me 10 more guests instead of the cocktail hour and also Gazebo decorations instead of the trio band.  I figured before I leave for Mexico I will send her an email covering everything we have talked about for confirmation and then print it out and take with me to make sure.

Hello everyone! I've been a little absent on the board lately, but have still been lurking and keeping up with everyone's posts and reviews :)  I've got 2 questions that I'm sure you ladies have answers to...

 

First question...our wedding is just over 4 months away...when did you start getting emails from your WC with pics of flowers or info on an officiant or other details?

 

And second..I remember reading a while back on the Dreams Cancun website in the wedding section that they would soon have a website for family/friends that could not attend your wedding to still be able to watch live over the internet.  Does anyone know if this is up and running or has anyone had family/friends be able to watch from home?

 

Thanks ladies!

 

Debbie  :)

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
