Quick question to all of the brides who have been to Dreams, have you found transportation to and from the airport safe? Because of all the crime in Mexico I want to ensure my wedding party will have no trouble getting back and forth between the airport and resort. Please share any experiences/feedback you have had.

We all booked our travel through a travel agent and part of that price was transport to and from the hotel with a company called Olympus.  This company provides A LOT of transfers to the Cancun hotels - they have many vans and even several buses that they use.  Olympus and another company (cannot remember the name of it) have employees that hold office hours in an office just a few doors down from the wedding office to coordinate airport transfers and to sell tours that they provide.

http://www.olympus-tours.com/

 

Here is how Olympus works:  you pre-purchase your transfers (either through a travel agent or online through their website) and have a voucher printed out.  When you have gone through customs at the airport you walk outside to ground transportation (don't even make eye contact with the people trying to get your attention while you are inside - they are trying to sell you time shares) and you will see a podium with an Olympus guy in an orange polo shirt.  This guy will take your voucher and set you off to the side for a minute while he gathers your driver and fills up the van with other travelers.  Then you load up and head off for the hotel zone and stop and several different hotels dropping people off.  (We were the last ones to get off as is as Dreams Cancun is at the far end of the hotel zone)  The guy at the podium will also tell you a time to go and meet your hotel rep for Olympus during the office hours (same day as arrival).  During that meeting the hotel rep will take your return flight info and will give you your pick-up time for your return to the airport.  The hotel rep will then try and sell you one of their tours, so you can either listen or politely tell him no thanks.  On your departure day, you wait outside the lobby at your designated time and when the Olympus van/bus arrives, they check to make sure you are getting on the right van and then take you away.  You will notice on your departure day that there are vans arriving every 15-30 minutes...this is a big operation.  I am sure there are several companies that provide the same service, this is just the one I am familiar with....hope this info helps!

Wow, Jana! You look beautiful and so happy!  And, I gotta agree about the flowers - A-MA-ZING!!! ;)  Can't wait to hear about the rest of your Big Day!  I see you wore a veil...did you have any problems with it? I want to wear a veil, too, and see that many don't because it's so windy...

 

Also, did you girls have to wait until you got to Dreams to pick out your flowers? I was hoping to see my options before I got there so I had a little time to decide. We're getting married May 11 and I haven't seen anything yet.

 

I gotta say, I love all you Dream(s) Girls!  ;)

 I picked mine out when I got down there. she has a very large book and to be honest I was a little stressed about that vut clearly did not have to be at all. I am not a last minute girl at all. Claudia was unreal. She really pays attention to every detail for you and you will have nothing to worry about. I can't wait to show u ladies my cake too. It was beyond my dreams gorgeous and delicious. The veil was not really an issue. It was windy but it looked so gorgeous flowing in the wind and if I could do it again I would wear the veil. I feel like it really adds a lot to the look! :) I say go for it.  Congrats and I can't wait to see your pics. You will have an amazing wedding!!

    • 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
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
