Dreams Cancun 2013 Destination Wedding Brides

Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies!! I just booked my wedding at Dreams!!! I am so excited!!! Our wedding date is December 7th 2013. We are getting the Ultimate wedding package but I just wanted to see if any of you had tips/warning/advice for me. I am still early in the planning process so I want to make sure I am as prepared as possible. Cecilia is my wedding coordinator. I read through some of the postings and its seems as if she does good work? I am a little nervous about planning a wedding out of the country and not really getting to see the site or anything until I arrive a few days before the wedding... Any suggestions are welcome :) Congrats to all you brides!!!

Hey girls.  I'm 105 days away!  Time is flying.  Feel like a l have a lot under control.  Question.. has anyone sent things to Claudia or Cecilia?  I was thinking about shipping my centerpiece decor, signs, and guest favors but I have never shipped anything out of the country and am a little weary.  If you have, where did you ship through, Fed Ex, UPS, etc???  Please let me know if you can be of any help.

Hey Courtney,    I am so happy for you.  I am getting married there Nov 16, so i'm in the same boat as you.  I have to let you know that i have scoured this website and others and from what i read it seems you might feel like you cant get in touch with the wedding coordinators much at first and its scary at first, but once you are close to your wedding they will be very much in contact with you....and i have read over and over that they totally take care of everything for you, so dont spend an iota worrying about anything :)    (I also have Cecilia and have the Ultimate package). CAN NOT WAIT!!!!!

Ok cool!! We will have to stay in touch!! Let me know if you find out any information that's worth passing along and I will do the same :) Are you going through a travel agent and blocking off rooms for your wedding, or just letting everyone book themselves?

We looked into booking through the hotel.  It seemed like more of a problem than a help to me.  They give you a free room if you book 6, but they will only give you money back after you leave and they take out certain fees (or so i have heard).   And the price we were quoted by the group discount guy at Dreams was sooo much more than we could find on our own.   We found a GREAT deal for our guest with www.bookit.com.  We got 7 nights, including flights to and from Boston for $1099.  That is a great deal, compared to going through the hotel itself.  The prices vary day to day and you have to watch for the best deals.  The downside to this is that your guest have to book it themselves if they want to get flights that work best for their schedules.  Our guests seem to be fine with this though. 

 

Yes, definitely keep in touch...keep me posted on how things are going.  (If you email Cecilia she will send you list of bouquets you can choose from, and cakes you can choose from).          Congratulations!!!

Hey girls. I have a question about the menu for the reception dinner. We have the ultimate dream package so we get the "gold" menu and it is going to be a sit down dinner, not Buffett. On the brochure Cecilia sent me there are three gold menu dinner options. Do my guests get to choose which ever one they want? Or do I chose one of the menus and everyone gets the same thing? Does anyone know how this works?
