WHAT TO BRING? - Dreams Cancun

Recommended Posts

So, I booked the Ultimate Package at Dreams Cancun.......but I am not quite sure what I need to bring from home to make it more personal and/or cheaper.?

..

On their website it says that they charge you for each napkin if you want one! From napkins, to flower petals.. etc.

 

So if there is any ladies that have gotten married there recently...what do you suggest we bring from home ? And what is a good add-on to purchase down at Dreams??

 

Thanks!! grouphug.gif

I am getting married in Jamaica and am having the same problem $50 a bag of petals for the flower girls and I would need 5 bags to line the isle and then have some for the girls to throw ($50 for petals that fell off the florist flowers and swept up) I asked about bringing the fake petals from Michael's my resort said no but you can try asking yours.

WOW... That is so outrageous!... I can't understand why they won't allow you to bring you own??

 

I am planning on bringing my own napkins... His and her flutes... Cake knife set... and the petals...

 

I don't know if there is anything else I need though... Do we need to bring our own cake toppers? Since I haven't been able to get any photos of the cakes, I don't know if they just decorate them with flowers?

I think this would be mainly because fake petals would not be eco friendly and could pose a potential threathuh.gif Like I said that would seem like a logical explanation.

This is what I know...

I do have pictures of the cakes Dreams resort provides. I will be happy to post them again if you need them. In the event you do not like the cakes you can always decide what you want on your cake, if you want different flowers then you pay for flowers, if you want a cake topper, then buy a cake topper. If you are looking for ideas, go to theknot.com or google to find examples so you can email them to the WC. They are very accommodating but you certainly have to do your research to make you wedding uniquely yours.

Also, there are is soo much info on this forum. Just search what you are looking for and the threads will pop up. Also, I HIGHLY reccommend reading completely through this thread:

http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t2782

I know it is quite long but there is soooo much info. When I joined I did just that and so many of my questions were answered. If you have any specific questions you cannot find answers to then please PM me. I have been in communication with Claudia for sometime and have revised my contract about 6 times already and I still have 11 months to go.

Lastly, there is a thread that is awesome about what not to forget. I am going to find it and post once I do. What I did was start a spreadsheet and I am listing items on there as I think about them. Misc Stuff that you just don't think of at the last minute for example extra scissor or glue just to name a couple.

It just depends on what you want. You can bring anything. Table runners, centerpieces, decorations. I am bringing centerpieces because I don't want to pay extra for theirs.

can't speak for cancun, but at dreams pv, we rented table runners for $7 each. used their napkins, plates, etc. brought cake topper and all decorations for table (just little tea lights and holders). we brought fake petals and never even asked - just gave them to the wc to put on the aisle runner. if your resort doesn't let you use petals, try ecofetti - biodegradable confetti. all of their rentals are expensive!!!! i never got a single thing back, so just make sure that you get it back if it's something important to you.

we had 2 cakes, but w/ 30 ppl, it was totally not worth it.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
