June 2012 Wedding: DREAMS CANCUN...Need some advice

Recommended Posts

I am getting married June 18th 2012 and I need some good tips from former brides who got married at Dreams Cancun. I would like to know if the photographer was good. We chose the Ultimate Dreams Package, however, we still feel like we need extras. Can you give us any tips? How was the hair dresser? Is the reception on the beach worth it? Let me know.

Hello Dreams Cancun is one of the best locations for wedding they have very secluded area  called HIMITSU beach , you will feel like in alittle island there. Are you having gazebo ro beach ceremony?  , I think the gazebo give you like a very private ceremony the Ultimate Package  cover 20 people and their pictures are "average"but you may ask Claudia  for a vendor fee or may be swap some services and bring your own phtographer with you!!! Juan Navarro is expert and know that location perfectly he is doing  alot of new artistic pics!! you can find his website BDW , please feel free to let me know if you may  have specific questions I will be happy to assist you m you are 6 months away!

If photography is important to you, you should pick a photog that really speaks to you, that can capture your style and the feel of your wedding.  If the service included in your package is not what you want, there are many talented photographers in this region to choose from to make your special day memorable. I've shot a few weddings at the Dreams.  Check out MY BLOG for the FULL shoots!

Congratulations on your wedding!!!! I just got married at the Dreams Cancun 3 weeks ago and it was amazing. I didnt use teh photographer that they offered.  I used Sasha Gluck.  He does wicked work.  My older sister got married last yr at the Dreams Riviera Maya and used him, so when we decided to get married in mexico, it was a no brainer.  We actually considered flying him to NY when we thought we were having a city wedding.  He is amazing.  I was so glad that we didnt use the photographer that came with the dreams package because as luck would have it i got a stress eye infection 2 days befoer the wedding.  It was gross, it looked like pink eye but there was puss coming out 2 DAYS BEFORE MY WEDDING.  I was devasted.  I was ok because sasha assured me that he could remove the pink out of my eyes with his program, which the photogrpaher at the resort could not do.  (we used that part of the package for our rehershal dinner)  Sasha is a vendor on here and is worth every penny.  We also did a trash the dress.   You can message me for some pictures if you want. 

 

On another note, Sandy the planner that posted a response for you was actually my wedding planner and was a GOD SENT.  it is always stressful to have a resort wedding bc the planners are super busy and seem to NEVER respond to your endless email questions.  Sandy was so propfesional and promtp, eased all my fears, got things that i wanted that the resort offered but for a fraction of the price.  There are actual pictures of her and I dancing on my wedding day.  She was not just my planner but ultimatly became my friend.  Planning is is stressful and can make any women nuts, but she often skyped with me, sent me options of things she "just thought i would like" and was able to recreate any picture that I sent her.  I sent her a cake from the knot that they were able to re create dead on!  If you have any question about her as well please feel freee to message me.!!!! Happy Planning.... but would be even happier with sandy :)

good luck

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
