    Hello all,

    Im new to this and am already driving myself mad! We have booked our wedding for July 2009 and are staying in Cancun for 2 weeks. We have qualified for the complementary ''free'' package and have not added any ungrades yet (still waiting for final guest numbers as we are from England).

    Having emailed Gaby from Dreams, she has given me additional prices for EVERYTHING! I am interested to know- can you take your own napkins, chair bows, favors, table decorations ect? Also, my travel agent said the initial meeting with WC would be the time to settle any additional requirements ie: meals, exact flowers, gazebo decorations. I am worried this is far too soon to the actual day? What is something goes wrong? Ahhh!!!! Please let me know what others have done.

    Thanks so much,

    Lindsay xx

      Hi Lindsay. Welcome to the forum. I can't help you out much with Dreams Cancun but there are a lot of DC brides on here that can. Best of luck to you!

        I'm in the UK 2 and staying at dreams cancun for 2 weeks!! we've gone for the ultimate package so that we don't have to worry 2 much about everything.

        Remember our luggage allowance is shite and so carrying stuff like napkins and centre pieces etc will be a pain.

        I've booked and paid my deposit so if there is anything you want to know just ask?

        Oh yeah and don't bank on everyone coming that you've asked - we had 37 and only 5 have paid their deposits!!

          Hi Lindsay!

          Welcome to the forum!

          As far as napkins those aren't extra, unless you are looking for colored napkins. You don't have to do chair bows, but if you wanted to buy your own I don't see that being a problem, but as Harty mentioned don't forget about transporting everything.

          When I was married there I spent a lot of time pricing everything out a la carte and comparing to the packages and the package was the way to go, I went with the ultimate package. So the centerpieces were included, cake, mariachi, dinner & cocktail hour up to 20 people, hair & makeup, etc... Depending on how many people you are having this will probably be your best bet.

          Let me know if I can answer any questions for you.
