Jen's Amazing Dreams Cancun Wedding Review

Recommended Posts

Great review & Pics Jen!! Congrats again.

It sounds like you had a fabulous time :) I am ecited that you used Juan Navarro as I am using him too. I think if you don't upgrade you get him for 90 mins right?? I guess I will find out soon, as We leave on Saturday!! :-)

The situation with the Video guy sounds shady. Hmm...We will be there a full 4 days after the wedding so hopefully there will not have to be shipping involved.

 

Anyway...I am so happy for you and everything sounded great! :-)

Definitely well worth it!

Our biggest issue was we were leaving the day after. You should be fine. I am glad I printed all my materials to reference. I printed all photo packages, video packages, all emails, etc.

I get teary eyed just thinking it is over. It was magical and wonderful but I really wished I could have stayed a few more days. We cancelled our Honeymoon cuz of work reasons and really could have used the down time. We took off Monday and sleep til 12 so that helped...ok babbling on now. hijacked.gif

Great review!! You pictures are so beautiful and so are you! It is so good to hear that everything went smoothly for you. Is there any way that you could post some pics of the beach reception set up? I haven't really been able to get a good idea of what it will look like. Thanks so much, and again you look gorgeous!

Congratulations Jen!! I'm so glad you had a great time and that they took good care of you!

 

I'm sorry about the A/C thing in your room, that's a bummer, the same thing happened to us when we were there, but they were able to fix it.

 

You looked beautiful and I love your flowers. Congratulations again!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
