I just starting planning my wedding at Dreams Cancun for January 19th.  I am so glad I found this forum!  I didn't realize I could trade things.  Claudia is my coordinator and I haven't gotten much info from her yet.  Thanks Sarah P for letting me know I can trade my cocktail hour for extra guests for dinner.  I'm sure I will see you there since I am getting married the day before you.

Hi Megsweet, I was thinking of doing the boat trip over to isla majeras with our guests as my fiancé and I did that once when we went to Cancun and loved it! Or the Captain Hook dinner as I think the kids would really enjoy that. What do you have in mind?? Hope your well and very excited!

We're doing the tan suit and no cocktail hour. No need for cocktail hour when it's open bar anyway! I am curious about more info on the trip to Isle Morasles... Could you tell me what company you went with?

ones if you have children etc. But we had a ball. You can also charter one specially for a group if you like. They are on trip advisor. Hope that helps.

I was thinking of a sunset cruise, but decided on a welcome BBQ instead. My travel agent recommended a group that does all types of excursions. If we use them we may get a discount bc it's like a sister to the TA company. So I don't know. They have a bunch of tours and there are a few places that are like parks that have zip line, cultural stuff, and just a variety of activites. That we we could all go and everyone gets to do something they like. My FI likes the tour where everyone drives like a mini speed boadt and we all end up at like a reef for snorkling. I like that one too. I need to contact the tour company to discuss the options.

What is the tan suit? Oh you mean for your FI to wear?

 

I know everyone wants to give up the cocktail hour, but I'm really hesitant. Seems fun to have the mariachi band . areyou all keeping that??

What are you trading the cocktail hour for? 

 

Who is your coordinator? Have you been in touch with her much? I finally emailed Cecilia a week ago, but Havent' heard back....

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 :)
