Here's some more info on the budget breakdown.


Dreams Of Love Package: $2060.00

20 Extra Guests at Reception: $48.00+15% service charge+10% tax   =$1214.40

Ceremony Music: $180.00

Reception Music: $180.00 X 3=$540

Bridesmaids Bouquets: $45.00 X 3 Bridesmaids=$135.00

Rehearsal Dinner: $100.00


TOTAL: $4229.40


Substituted Cocktail Hour towards Extra Dinner Guests: $26.00 X 20=$520.00 credit


FINAL TOTAL: $3709.40


We had already paid the $500 deposit for the Dreams of Love package before we got there and they charged the rest of it to our room so we could pay it anytime during our stay.  It was very convenient and we paid quite a bit less than I originally thought we would.

Hey Everyone! Getting married at Dreams Cancun Feb 13th, 2011. I'm so excited. Anyone know where I can buy white chocolate seashells for my wedding cake. I ordered cake 03 without the ribbon and I'm just going to add the chocolate seashells and starfish. I'm also going to add white sugar at the bottom. shell wedding cake.jpg

I used EW Cancun for the ceremony decor and they required a deposit when I booked them.  They have a U.S. partner in New York that I was able to send a check to and I paid the rest of it a few weeks before the wedding the same way.


We used Playa Weddings for photography and they actually had paypal so I paid a deposit when I booked them through my credit card on paypal and the rest of it the same way a few weeks before the wedding. 


Both of these places would take the balance up to the day of the wedding but I wanted to have those things paid for before we got down there.  You can probably ask them ahead of time what they accept for payment too.  Hope this helps!
