    Congrats to dreams brides.  I am not getting married there however I was a bridesmaid in a wedding there. It was beautiful.  If it weren't for already having attended a wedding there it would have been my first choice.

        We got married a week ago today and it was amazing!!! Everything was perfect and the staff was wonderful!! I want to do it again every year!

        A rumor we heard while there was that the Hyatt deal fell through and that it wil stay a Dreams resort. Many of the workers didn't know anything about it though. A guest of ours heard that from someone on the entertainment staff. The poor waiters only sign month long contracts so they are clueless about any change but incredible when I comes to serving you.

        Man I wish we were still there... Felt like home away from home. It was perfection!

          Sarah,

          Congratulations on the wedding! You have no idea how much this post calmed my nerves haha! I'm getting married February 28th so it's coming up pretty quick. 

           

          So tell me about it, I want details! haha

          Did they provide any decorations or did they let you use any from past weddings?

          Did you have something to play the ceremony songs?

           

          Do you have any advice or tips? It would be MUCH appreciated.

          Can't wait to see pictures of your wedding :)

            Hi Ashley!
            So happy to be able to calm your nerves!!!

            Where do I begin?! For decorations, we brought squares of burlap and lace for center pieces and then I was going to just wing the actual vase element. I had little Mexican flags with our names made and my plan was to just put those in glass soda bottles (from the mini bar ha) if there wasn't anything left for me to use. But it ended up that a bride had left some mason jars! So Claudia let me use those. I brought jute string and wrapped it around each jar, put sand in there and then Claudia put little fake the lights in there that we're perfect! I didn't ask for it but they also put shells and starfish on the tables as great decorations!

            For the ceremony we traded a minister (my uncle did it) for a sound system. I was nervous as to how that would work but it was perfect. I made 3 CDs, one for "sitting music," one for walking down the aisle and one for walking back down the aisle. They were clearly marked and all worked. They had someone operating the system so that was helpful and great.

            Advise I have is to just enjoy! And role with things as they happen. We had an outside do we loved and recommend. Where are you having your reception?

            Bring small bills for tipping! It's not required but goes a long way for sure! And it's deserved but converting to pesos is a pain. We brought enough small bills to just tip in USD the whole time.

            Any other questions please ask! Happy to help! Message me your email or Facebook info and we can link up and I'll share photos. We brought a friend that is a photog so I don't yet have my pics back but there are fun ones on FB already.

            Oh, we needed up paying the $4 per room for concierge to deliver welcome/OOT bags to guests. So worth it!!! They did a great job and it was so much easier since we had 30 rooms with 55 guests arriving over 4 days.

                  Just wanted to let everyone know what kind of BS they're trying to pull right now. I'm getting married this Friday and asked for an updated spreadsheet from my coordinator. For the past 10 months it has been 15% service fee and 11% tax, well the spreadsheet I got today is now 16% TAX! Are you kidding me?! I thought it was a mistake and told her to fix it and she sent me this link. http://www.theyucata...cos-tax-reform/

                   

                  So basically if I hadn't of asked her for final details I would have gotten to the resort and found out I owed more than I thought. She told me she "hopes I understand."

                   

                  Needless to say, I'm one pissed off bride. I find this out less than 48 hours before I'm supposed to be in Mexico  :angry:
