Dreams Cancun - Questions for those married here!

Recommended Posts


We are having 50-60 guests and don't plan to do the cocktail hour...we are using the same approach that you did.  Did they swap 1 cocktail hour guest for 1 dinner?   Or did they just give you a partial credit for not using the cocktail hour?

My husband and I didn't miss anything while we were taking pictures. Also, we were still able to have a plated dinner. The only thing I would suggest with that is get rid of the dessert.. We didn't but ended up asking our DJ to move forward before it was served.

Did any of your bridesmaids get hair and makeuo at the spa? I am wondering if they use MAC makeup?

We had our hair done but nobody had make up done. I loved my hair! It was better than I ever thought! I was a little nervous because they do not speak much English... But it was awesome!

Oh oh. I have some pictures of my makeup but I need to make sure they do not use a lot of black liner like they have in pic.

I did and I think it was worth it. I don't think the make-up they use is mac but I personally liked my make-up. It was more dramatic then I could ever do on my own which is good for your pictures.

My fiance and I are planning to ask our guests to meet us for a cocktail/informal meet & greet prior to dinner on the two days that most of our guests arrive.  Everyone is arriving at different times and we want to make sure that we see everyone prior to the wedding.  It looks like our options are Barracuda Bar or Rendezvous Bar.  We are leaning towards Barracuda.  Does anyone have an opinion as to which would be best?  Thanks!!

I would choose the Rendezvous Bar.

 

The Barracuda Bar is an outdoor bar in the shape of a square with counter all the way around, so it would be hard to get a group to mingle.

The Rendezvous Bar is the indoor lobby bar that has good seating and space for mingling and has an outdoor patio area that would be perfect if you could take that space over.

Trying really hard not to freak out. The weather in Cancun for my wedding is Thunderstorms and more clouds than sun! I am soooooo bummed.

    • Did you have to contact photo editing services?
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
