Thanks so much for the information! Sounds like you guys had beautiful and fantastic weddings!
For the DJ, was the $699 for the lighted dancefloor and DJ services? howe many hours? who did you use?
Is a sound system necessary for the ceremony music?
If they let you swap, I may do a package.
Cant wait to seepics!

I know nothing about the DJ but from what we researched it was alot hire than that . We were told 198.00 for equipment and DJ for the Ceremony and then 699.00 for the DJ and his equipment for the reception..... So not to sure what went wrong there
Again we did have the ultimate pkg.
It is very windy by the Gazebo so if you want anyone to hear anything that is being said you do need it.
I have heard of a lot of brides bring there I Pod and docking station and have a friend set up the music.
We were told because we brought our own equipment that it would be 100.00 for the use of electricity but we didnt get charged at the end .
They will let you change out some things for a good swap but not others.
For example we did not really want the 3 piece mexican band as it was approx. 600.00 , so we asked to swap for extra pictures and they where going to give us approx 150.00 in trade which didnt sit while with me so we had the band while we made our own reception after the wedding and had them come up to the deck at the tower right close to the gazebo and it was very nice with the bar 10 steps away and place to sit and chat while the bride and groom went for photos.
I had asked if we could do this with our wedding planner Claudia and she said no as it is a common area, she left to get the reception on the beach started and we just took over that space and told the tro band to come up onto the deck and they did , no problem.

We switched our mexican band for 2 hours of DJ. The cost equivelent was the same so that worked. You definately need the sound system for the wedding, it is extremely windy and I believe it is worth the cost

Hello, I'm trying to decided between the Palace resorts and Dreams Cancun Im really impressed with the incentives the palace resorts gives you if you meet the qualifying room... Can anyone tell me if dreams cancun gives any type of group wedding special accommodations? Also how much is it to do private functions at the resort?

Just had my wedding a couple of weeks ago. I absolutely loved it. Below is the link to our slideshow. We also went with adventure photos. They did a great job. We purchased the $1,000 all day package. I think it was worth it because you get an additional 100 photos, a photo book. After your allotted amount, the pictures are $15 each or they offer you a package price for all of them. We also had the dance floor and the DJ. It was definitely worth it. Everyone had so much fun and we didn't have to worry about anything. We did not have 40 guests, but we paid for 40 at the reception to get the buffet. It was well worth it. We only had to pay for the actual guests for the cocktail hour and chair decorations. When I compared pictures, I noticed that if you have your wedding about 2 hours before sunset, you will have more time to take pictures (with family, friends and more locations). However, this will be a trade off if you want the sunset in the background.
Good luck planning! I'd be happy to answer any questions as well.

Lori just got done another beatiful wedding at the Dreams Cancun and I wanted to share a highlight of the shots with you! The natural beauty of the area around the resort really makes for some great newlywed pics!
