Dreams Cancun - Wedding Review - Detailed :-)

Recommended Posts

Hey Paula V:

 

Here are the answers to your questions:

 

You mentioned you were sent a final contract 2 weeks before your wedding date. Did you have to put down a certain percentage deposit at that time?

 

*We went on a site visit the year before so we put a deposit of $1200 down then. In April, I had the additional $1200 wired to the account that was given to me for Dreams. Claudia confirmed via email that she received final payment. The contract seems to always be a work in progress because they simply cross things off and add. (Not quite like we do in the states)

 

For the meet and greet, did you have any problems finding tables for 30 guests or did you need to make reservations? I really like your idea.

 

*We actually chose a time when we know the World Cafe (largest restaurant on the resort that is a buffet) and simply went in together. Since Dreams is a non wristband resort, you simply give them your room number and you are seated.

 

Where did you buy the handwoven OOT bags? I love them!

Here is the vendor...Welcome to Ailana Kai

The rental of the stereo equipment, is that $180 per hour?

No...it was $180 for the ceremony and $180 for the reception.

 

 

Did you have a DJ? Band? iPod?

We burned our cd's from our Itunes library before we left. Several couples used their Ipod's and it drained the batteries rather quickly.

 

Did you hand out any tip envelopes on top of the charges, tax and tip they already charge or did Daniella handle everything for you?

 

I tipped the workers on my own. They don't really make any money and the service at Dreams is outstanding.

The cocktail hour started about 10 minutes after the actual ceremony. We had an outside photographer so this worked out perfect. While guests were seated at the cocktail hour, we went to the beach and lighthouse for additional pictures/footage.

 

Our wedding began a 6:30 p.m. and we were done with everthing by 10:45.

Centerpieces:

 

We did bring additonal coral votives and holders. I also found sea animal tea light holders that we scattered throughout the table as well. Personalized napkins and white fingered starfish were the other things on the table.

 

********I just received my professional photographs. Erick Rodriguez of Claudia Rodriquez Studios Rocks!!!!!!!!! I'm super pumped about my photos. smile123.gif I will try to post them tomorrow. Of course, I'm challenged with posting photos...they always come out ridiculously large. I will probably copy and paste them into a word document.

Ooooh, I can't wait to see your pics, kimiko!!!

 

The centerpiece you chose looks like the one I want, do you remember which one it was from the file?

 

I have another question for anyone, I have not paid any of the fee for the dreams ultimate package yet, I've asked my TA several times if I need to, she said no, I've sent the contract back, and I've talked to Claudia many times, so I know she know who I am and when my wedding is, but it still makes me nervous that I haven't paid for the wedding package yet. Have the rest of you paid for it already?

Danilla sent me a formal contract (in excel) listed out all the detail from ceremony to reception. We made several changes on the contract back and forth and then paid 50% of the balance by wire tranfer.
