Dreams Cancun Beach Wedding

Recommended Posts

My wedding's June 29th, 2008 @ Dreams Cancun Mexico. Are any of you Dreams Cancun Brides getting married right on the beach?

If so, would you be so kind to share your planning details so far with the WC on this?

 

Thanks

I'm not getting married on the beach, I'm using the gazebo, as I think almost all of us dreams brides are, but I might be able to help if you have some specific questions? Let me know.

Hello,

 

Well on our last e-mail, Daniela mentioned to me that if I wanted a beach ceremony, it could be set up. She briefly mentioned that it would be in a private spot too, but I haven't read anywhere in these forums of anyone having a beach ceremony @ Dreams Cancun. I was actually considereing Dreams Tulum because of this, but chose Dreams Cancun instead because of the location for my guests. I'm undecisive. The Gazebo looks amazing too...

Plus, I was also thinking If I have a beach ceremony, where would be appropriate to have my cocktail & reception if not at the beach too. How are you going about your big day??

I think you're right most of us getting married at dreams cancun fell in love with the gazebo, for me I think that was the selling point, I loved it, it made dreams stand out to me from the other resorts I looked at. But I can totally understand you wanting a wedding on the beach too, we would have done that if it weren't for the gazebo.

 

I haven't seen any pictures of weddings on the beach there, so I can't really comment on how private it is. You could have your cocktail hour and reception on the beach too, but thats more personal preference. I love the beach reception setup if you have a large group. For a small group it just wouldn't have the same effect. Have you seen the pictures of the beach set up? So pretty!! It almost looks magical!

 

If I were doing a beach ceremony with our size group I would either do a garden reception or the terrace.

 

We are doing the garden for the cocktail hour and the terrace for the reception.

 

Okay, I don't know if I really helped at all, lol, or if I just rambled. But let me know if I can help with anything else.

 

oh, btw, I also looked into dreams tulum and probably would have gone with it, but I didn't want my guests that could only come down for a few days, spending half of their time on a bus & a plane.

Exactly...!!! Well you pretty much understand where i'm coming from then. I'm really considering the gazebo afterall. Oh by the way, are you planning any group activites for your group, once there? If so, do the WC's help you out with any of this or are you expected to go about it on your own?

Also, right now I don't know if my date is certain, cause I haven't made any payments. From what I understand, doesn't dreams require a 50% deposit to reserve your datehuh.gif? I'm actually getting really worried with this.

Would you happen to know Daniella Castillo's direct phone number? worried2.gif

well, my TA reserved my date and Claudia told me I didn't need to send a deposit because they have a very good relationship with my travel agency, but I wanted to send something, I actually didn't send a deposit until about a week ago, and my wedding is in 2 weeks.

 

but I think if you're booking on your own, then yes you do need to give a deposit.

 

I do not have Daniellas phone number, I've actually only spoken to Claudia.

 

We aren't planning any group activities. I think our activities will be more casual, like I'll probably try to get everyone to meet up for brunch on sunday before they leave for the airport. And maybe the night before the wedding try to get everyone to meet up for drinks after dinner. But we didn't have the money to pay for a welcome dinner, etc... I did schedule a fishing trip for the boys, but I did that on my own.

Wow, two weeks ago.. well I'm also in the process of working w/ a travel agent here in jersey. But she's actually taking very long. What travel agent are you using? If you don't mind me asking. Also, just a quick question about the invites. Must I include everything that I have planned for the guests onto the invites? I mean how else are they to know what the wedding weekend willl look like? Because I'm actually considering doing (message in a bottle invites). although I heard that they may be cheap to make, but costly to mail out. What do you think?

Dreams is surrounded by water on 3 sides. There's a spot on one of the sides with a small beach and there's also palapa huts lined up (it's next to the gazebo). That beach is fairly quiet so great for private parties. We're getting married in the gazebo but will definitely go to the beach to take photos. Whatever you decide for your ceremony, I don't think you'll be disappointed at all. Either are great choices...

Congratulations on your site selection. That was probably the hardest part for me also. I chose to have my ceremony in Cancun because of the gazebo, the dolphins for the children and golf for the spouse (while I get my spa treatment!). I love the fact that the resort is not as large as the high rise properties and it has a secluded feel to it! If you need any help, there are a lot of ladies in this forum with lots of valuable info and insight! Good luck!
