DREAM CANCUN bride - need some advice!

Recommended Posts

If you've been married at Dreams Cancun, or are planning to get married there, did you book a DJ or a band for your reception? Originally, we were thinking of booking the resort DJ, but read some bad reviews about him from several brides. Have anyone used an outside company?


Thanks for your help in advance:)

Sherry - Where did you get these reviews from? This has been one of my top concerns as well. I will be VERY disappointed if the DJ is not good. I was under the impression that Dreams hired a DJ from outside of the resort for all weddings and that you had to use that company. I could be wrong though. Have you heard differently?

Jenn, I read the review from this website. I think the most recent one on DJ was from Brenda. Daniella from Dreams told me that the DJ who works for the resort is $280/hr + 10% tax and she can also recommend DJ outside of the resort if we like.

Susan is using a DJ, I don't think its the same one brenda used, but I think she got the prices from daniella or claudia.


We're using our IPOD and docking station, so I'm not much help!

Hi everyone,


i'm looking for some advice from those of you who have been married at Dreams Cancun or are in the process of organizing your wedding!!


Our wedding is in July 2009, I have just recently sent the deposit and filled out the Q & A form for the wedding and have today recieved a copy of our contract.


We have booked the Dreams Ultimate package ($2650) as I thought it included quite a lot in it, I realised that we would probably need to pay extra but the price on the contract has DOUBLED!!!!


We are not having anything fancy, there are 31 guests so need to pay extra for 11 as it only covers 20, fair enough. We said we would like a DJ for evening reception OMG how expensive is that!!! Also you have to pay for the sound system for the ceremony on top of that!! The list goes on and on...


Just to see if everyone is in the same situation?? If so does anyone have any advice as to getting the cost down a bit or negotiate with what's in the package??


Just a bit surprised at the price......


Thanks for the help!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
