    hi dreams cancun girls. i am looking for some advice on where to have the reception after the ceremony. my fiance and i are having the ceremony at the gazebo, but we are unsure about the reception. we are going back and forth on having it on the beach, the garden or terrace. any suggestions or recommendations from those of you with the Dreams Cancun wedding experience? we are having a DJ and approximately 40 guests attending. any help would be so appreciated!! Thanks!!

      I had mine on the terrace. It was nice but if you have it there make sure you have it outside. It is too hot inside.

          from what i've learned here i would say the inside area of the terrace is too hot, but the outdoor area is nice if your party will fit there, and you wouldn't need to rent a dance floor.

          garden and beach receptions accommodate more guests and look very pretty, but will require a dance floor rental, additional lighting, etc. also consider guests going back and forth to the building to use restrooms, etc.

          and if you want air conditioning, your only real option is the ballroom.

          i've heard the spa area and himitsu can be reception options, but only after they close (which i think is 8pm). they won't offer these locations on the questionnaire or contract ... you'll have to ask specifically, and i don't know whether they'll go for it anymore.

          good luck!
