Hi Everyone. I just booked my date for June 2014 and have really appreciated reading all of the posts on this thread! I am going to have a pretty big group. . at least 60 people and I just had a few  questions for brides who have already had their weddings. .

 

Which beach do you think is better for the reception?

 

Has anyone used an outside DJ that they recommend that was less expensive?

 

Did anyone bring their own centerpieces and if so, recommendations?

 

What did people do as far as tipping? We had asked Cecilia about this and she made it sound like gratuity is included as it is when staying at the resort but I wasn't sure.

 

Has anyone still been able to make trades? I was reading about trades that people have done .. but when I mentioned it to Cecilia she said that you can't make trades when using a package. We are getting the ultimate package but it sounded like the trades are specifically for the packages?

 

Thanks everyone. Really happy to have other people to chat with!!

I haven't gotten married yet but we have booked DJ Mannia for our DJ. They come with way more stuff and are less expensive even with the outside $150 fee than the Dreams DJ. 

  From what I have read through threads on here, brides have left A LOT of decorations at Dreams for future brides to use, so I would speak with your coordinator regarding what is available.   I have made a lot of trades and everyone else on here has too from what I've read so I would talk to Cecilia about it again. We are using an outside photographer & florist so we are getting a sound system for the ceremony and getting the gazebo decorated. The corsages they put on the gazebo I am going to have them put on the tables as centerpieces after the ceremony on the bridal party tables. I also opted out of the cocktail hour so instead of that we get 10 people comped for dinner.    Hope this helps :)

I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't talked with Cecilia yet!! I guess I'd better reach out to her. Are any of you doing an event the day after or before. I want to do a welcome party and either an excursion or brunch the next day.

Hi everyone! I recently put down a deposit for my wedding at Dreams Cancun Resort & Spa in May 2014. I read many reviews online about the rooms being "old & musty" and the AC not working or not getting very cold. What were y'alls opinions about the rooms and AC? I read online they recently renovated the rooms. Is this true?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
