DREAMS CANCUN WEDDING QUESTIONS

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! We are getting married at Dreams Cancun on April 29th, 2011. I was wondering if anyone had any insite on the Dreams Ultimate Wedding package. We are having approx 30 guests. Are there other things that I should consider adding to it that are not included? And if anyone knows which beach is nicer for the reception, Himatsu Beach or Caribe Beach are the two available. I would appreciate any responses, help, ideas, suggestions...Thanks!!!!

There is an established Dreams Cancun thread (info below) where all of the brides for that resort ask questions and share info.  I have signed a contract for the Ultimate package for next November.  With 30 people, you will be paying for 10 additional people for the cocktail hour and the reception.  With fees and taxes, I think I recall that will be around $90/per person for those 10 people.  Some of the brides have traded the cocktail hour for 10 more guests at dinner - so you could have 30 people with no cocktail hour (everyone just heads to the lobby bar) and the seated reception for the package price.

I will likely be adding quite a few things to the package price - DJ, dance floor, centerpieces, extra photography (if I don't bring my own from the US - one thing to know iwth photos is that they try and charge $500 for the disc with all of the pictures but brides are able to negotiate to $300) and so on.  With so many months to go, I haven't made all of those decisions final.  However, there are several brides that are coming up on November 2010 weddings on that thread that can be of more help.

Thank you so much for your reply! I finally after months of going back and forth between whether we were going to get married at home, or away, then where, then what was available, got everything booked. Now I am down to these sort of details and feel lost. I will check that thread out - & that is a great idea with throwing out the cocktail hour for the added people of the reception. I did check on the photography and it looks like the resort uses Juan Navarro - his photos look great! I emailed him directly and he said that the package covers 120 mins, ceremony, couple's photos, and group shots. I think I'll be adding some time on also cause I like the photos of getting ready before the ceremony and some for the reception also. Thanks again & good luck with your planning!
