Leaving in a few days for Cancun wedding..hooray!

Recommended Posts

Well, after much planning I leave in just a few days for Cancun. I can't wait...I have been counting down months, then weeks and now days :). I laughingly thought that the last few weeks would be stress-free, time to regroup, get pampered and pack. Ha!!! I found these to be the busiest of all- last minute errands, picking up dress, changes in guest totals, interary cahnges, emails from vendors, etc. I don't know if anyone else found this to be true but this was my experience- FYI to all you other brides... plus your emotions are running so high from excitement, nerves, etc. so rely on support systems when it starts to feel overwhelming- they are invaluable! I am sooooo excited that it's finally here!!!


I had a crazy experience a few weeks ago that I wanted to share. Get this- I just found out that the Hyatt Cancun Caribe CHANGED to another resort!!! They never prewarned me, let me know or anything- I found out because travelocity, american express had started contacting guests.... whathuh.gif?? I had to scramble to tell all my guests new hotel info, make sure that all my contract information, hotel room info was still valid- needless to say it was the biggest mess ever. And a WC who just replies "no problem- everything is the same". Ha!!!! I know that she is playcating me to a certain extent but I have everything documented/ been in touch with hotel/ so at this point I have let it go overall and know that I will get down there and assess things and adjust if needed- but everything will still be great (thats my mantra:)). I will keep you all posted when I get back :).


We have 60 people coming and I can't wait. We are still doing ceremony and dinner at (former) Hyatt Cancun Caribe and then reception at Fiesta Americana Condesa. I will give lots of pictures and reviews of hotels/vendors when I get back. Cheers and thanks to everyone on the forum for EVERYTHING- I don't know how you would plan a DW without this :).

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
