Jencakes21 absolutely beautiful! Congrats! My wedding is July 13 2013, getting close! I feel like I have nothing prepared. When will the wedding coord give us the total price? Do you pay at the Resort? I want to make sure I'm not too over budget. Also, what extras did you take? And what advise do you have? I'm taking chair sashes- and favors for the wedding seats- fans and bubbles. Thank you!

If your wedding is in July the wedding coordinator should have already sent you a contract (quote) with the total cost. If they haven't I highly advise you to give them a call and send emails until they respond. I know they get really busy over there but you should already know what the wedding is going to cost you. When you arrive at the resort you will meet with the wedding coordinator and you will go over all the details of the wedding. This is when you will make a final payment on the wedding since it must be paid in full prior to the event. As far as extras, I took my own centerpieces, fans, chair sashes and OT bags and saved TONS of money by doing this! I wouldn't bring anything else then what you already plan to bring because it's really not needed and you will have to many suitcases.

Did you put out your own centerpieces and ties your own sashes etc. Or did you have them do it?  I want to save money, as well, so dont want to have to pay alot for them to set things up.  At the same time i dont want to stress myself out by having to do stuff or put the burden on any of my guests. So i'm wondering how much they would charge to set out my centerpieces and put the sashes on (which i already purchased on my own and plant to bring).  Thanks.

I brought my own chair sashes and centerpieces. The hotel set-them both up for me and there is no additional charge for this so no worries

Same here last Nov for daughters wedding , we brought 6 suit cases in all and no cost to place all the items ....

We made a 4 page letter in bold letters to tell them how and where we wanted everything to go for the  ceramony and reception at Hutmisu Beach .

It was just how it was stated in the letter , every piece of bling just where it was suppose to be ....

They are great at what they do down there so do not stress out .....

PS Other brides have left 12 inch tall vases there and if you are needing them ask in that way ( want to borrow vases that other brides have left ) and they will let you use them at no cost .

Hi Dreams Brides!

 

I found this thread to be very helpful when planning our May 18th wedding at Dreams Cancun, so I wanted to share a small sampling of professional photos from our wedding (we used our own photographer). Everyone at Dreams does a fantastic job, and our wedding exceeded my expectations in every way!

Hey Ladies!

 

Wei just posted Lori's most recent amazing wedding at the Dreams Cancun and I wanted to share the shots with you!  I personally LOVE the newlywed shots with the lighthouse!  Such a unique background that you don't get at the other resorts!

Happy Planning!

I am new in here, I am getting married on Aug 31st 2013 ohh just a few months left. I am so nervous. I have a few questions please help me.

 

Ruby is my wedding coordinator, she said If I bring my sashes they will charge 2dlsfor each one (for set Up), well everytime I ask for soemthing to add, they want to charge me for extra everything :(. Do you guys think is better to get outside Wedding Coordinator?

 

They charge taxes like almost 28% for everything too :(. I got my DJ and Dancing Floor from outside vendor, even with the 150 dls you have to pay for outside vendor fee is like 600dls cheaper.

 

If someone got a outside wedding coordinator can you please pass me the info. Thnka you :)

 

Congratulations to all!!!!

For an outside DJ and dance floor, who are you using? How much do they charge? I know the hotel DJ is almost 1000! Ouch...and the dance floor is almost 800.00. It seems so steep!

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • 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?
