    Hey all-
    Sorry its been a while since I've been here. So much has happened since we got back from Cancun. Got a new job, we moved, it's been a crazy time.
    But our wedding was beautiful and unforgetable at the Dreams Cancun Resort.

    Unfortunately the original wedding planner Claudia was sick when we arrived in Cancun so we were switched to a new planner last minute which interfered with some of our original plans. Despite a miss on some of the details, we couldn't have asked for a better more perfect wedding.

    We had 65 people, ceremony took place at 5pm at the gazebo. Following was the cocktail reception at the terrace. We didn't enjoy that portion because we were off taking photos, but our guests enjoyed the appetizers and drinks. After photos with family and the group (about hour later) we headed over to the garden area. Set up was beautiful

    We ordered our own flowers, centerpieces, from and outside vendor. They were gorgeous. Calililies centerpieces, simple and elegant.

    The dance floor was layed out in the middle surrounded by tables on each side. And a small table at the head of the dance floor for us.

    We decided on a buffet style, because the night before we had sit down rehearsal dinner. The buffet was set up beautiful, and heard great things about the food.

    The negative if anything was the DJ. He was clueless about the music (we requested some spanish!!! and he didnt have it) not good on the mic at all.
    Luckily my husband is a DJ himself, so he went down prepared with music he mixed. But he had to walk the DJ through to play our songs and certain times, for like walking in, the dances, etc.)

    We partied outside until about 11:30. Then we took it in to the front lobby bar until 3am. It was so awesome!!

    Well if anyone is interested in seeing pics we have our website with three galleries. The first two galleries are from our professional photograher (we loved her!!!! Citalli from Claudia photos) And the third gallery are those taken from friends and family.

      The pictures are buetifull, hands down best gazebo ever is at Dreams Cancun. I'm glad you had fun and that your husband was able to help fix the DJ problem.

            Hi Brenda,
            Thanks for the pictures...they are beautiful! It gets me so excited and I can't wait for my big day! I have a question for you...I've heard that it can get pretty windy right there at the gazebo, did you have that problem? From your pictures it looked like there might have been a breeze. I also notice you had your reception outside and still had a dance floor. I was told that with a large group like yours was and mine will be a well that the only place the have the reception AND a dance floor is in the convention center? I'm assuming this isn't true then? Any info helps, thanks Brenda!

              Brenda you have no idea how excited I was to see a post from you!!! I have been wondering how your wedding went, I can tell from the pictures it was absolutely beautiful!

              I'm so happy that you loved Citlalli, it makes me so happy about my photographer choice!

              I have the same question about the veil, I have one and want to wear it, but was it really a nuisance?

              Also, the fabric on the gazebo, did you bring that? Or is that something dreams has, it was really pretty I really liked it!

                  Hi, sorry haven't been here in a bit. But noticed you were asking about the veil. It is very windy. My veil flew off but my dad caught it and put it back on. It was a cute picture. However, it ended up kinda pulling my hair. I liked having pics with the veil but could have done without.

                  For a big party (we had 65) we do recommend the garden area with the rented dance floor. It was beautiful and even though outside, very private. The garden is surround by sidewalk, so if people do pass by they walk outside the area. Its a great view and worth the extra money for dance floor. It's lit by tiki torches, very nice. The candles on the tables all didn't hold up. Our cocktail reception was on the terrace and I would recommend that as well. Its a smaller area and semi private. We didn't spend much time there because we were doing our pictures but heard the food was great.
