Hey Megsweet, Thank you! It took me ages to find the perfect dress so I am so happy I've finally got it. I am not sure what to trade the cocktail hour for, what about you? I have contacted Claudia as she's my co- ordinator because I wanted to change the ceromony time. But she hasn't got back to me. She does generally take around 2-3 weeks to reply in my experience. I'm going to hire a personal trainer after Christmas as I have my final fitting in January. Lol

Hi all... thank you for starting this thread! My date is 3/29/2014.  Wedding at 4 at the gazebo, break for pictures, 6-7 cocktail hour (I am keeping it because I love the idea of the mariachi band, and also I wanted to have some portion of the party outside) and I extended the reception an hour to do 7-11, in the ballroom.  I saw someone asking for a pic of the ballroom... if you google Dreams Cancun Ballroom, in images, the first pic that comes up is an Elizabeth Medina photo of the ballroom all done up, and it looks gorgeous.  I chose to go w/ the ballroom too bc of the dancing/sweating aspect. We decided to go with an outside photographer and dj... using cancun studios as the photographer and dj doremixx as the dj.  Ended up choosing both of them based on reviews and following them for a bit on facebook.  We chose the dreams ultimate package, so I am currently trying to swap out the photographer that they include for something... and all they are offering me is either a sound system for the ceremony or the drapes and flowers for the gazebo, which does not seem comparable in my opinion... anyone else have this issue?? Either way, I am super excited.  Save the dates went out awhile ago, now I am just waiting on my invitations to get here so I can start that process.  Curious to hear what everyone is bringing as far as decorations go vs. what they are paying to have dreams provide?  My thoughts are to bring the programs, chair sashes, favors, and table place cards... and have them do everything else. Also... for anyone interested, I decided on getting two dresses, so I can swap out for the reception.  David's Bridal has super affordable short dresses, for anyone who really likes to dance, but does not really enjoy sweating in makeup :)
[quote name="megssweet1" url="/t/86920/dreams-cancun-2014-brides/9 Hi, I see what you mean, with the swapping of the cocktail hour, that doesn't feel adequate. I am bringing chair sashes, but I think that's about it really.

I'm going to bring programs and prob menus, guest book, table numbers and I think that's it. Part of the appeal of the DW is they cover it all! I'm soooooo glad I'm not researching caterers, florists, cake, etc. We've just been so busy with the house! I'm about to make my invites. Doing passport ones. My friend is super crafty and is helping with the design then I'm gonna do a DIY party in two weeks to assemble.

Cancun Studios did our engagement photos when we came to playa del Carmen in Jan. they are great! Only reason they aren't photographing our wedding is because a friend is a photographer attending the wedding.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
