    I have a few questions for all you Dreams Brides. For those brides that had luminares, hanging lanterns and the canopy on the beach to stand under, did you purchase them through Dreams or a florist or make them yourself? I love the look of the luminares and canopy. I like the hanging lanterns but I could do without them.

      The luminaries would be easy for your to pack and bring. The canopy is part of our wedding setting at Dreams Tulum. As far as the lanterns, I have no idea, but I think Sarah (AQHARIDER) brought hers to Cabo.

        We brought the luminarias ourselves (we made them with our logo printed on them, they looked great, I loved them!) - Sarah Aquarider (DIY queen) posted a thread on how to do it. It was cheaper to bring them than pay for them down there plus we wanted our logo on them for some extra color.

        Maye got the canopy for us (for the beach) where we got married. Mariana can also get it, but I think Mariana was $50 more, so we had Maye get it. It was bamboo & exactly what I wanted.

        We didn't do the lanterns b/c we had our reception at Cascada. It's easier for them to hang the lanterns at Oceana.

        Let me know if you want pics of anything or more details.

        jen is right...if you choose oceana, mariana can set up the lanterns and hanging lights.

        if you want luminaries you will need to make your own but they are not difficult and i think add an amazing touch to the wedding.

          I bought my luminary bags from e-bay, but they're just white paper bags that can be purchased anywhere and cheap white votives from Bed Bath and Beyond. Dreams staff will fill with sand and light before reception. Plan on placing around pool and down steps to restroom on Oceana Terrace.

          The lanterns were bought online from paperlanternstore.com or asiaideas.com. Dreams Cabo charges approx $180 for the wiring and setup over the dance floor. 30 lanterns total 10" + 12" (other girls used larger/smaller sizes)

          I'm renting a chuppah (canopy) from Maye. There was an option to purchase flowers for it, but we're just using white fabric (included in cost).

            I'm not using an outside coordinator to ask about the canopy. I guess I'll have to ask Yessica how much it is to rent. I'll look for the luminares thread but about how many did you have? My reception is at the Cascada as well.

              This may be a dumb question, but do the luminary bags need to be special flame retardent ones or can you use any old white lunch bags?
