    Hi Sarah P, sabers20, and briandluna! So glad you girlies found this thread! I love this site, but sometimes it can seem overwhelming! Lets all post here with and info we learn! Briandluna, in a way this site made me more overwhelmed about planning because I just thought the resort would handle everything and I'd just show up! But fortunately, destination weddings offer so much flexibility! My gf suggested to me the other day that one of the main reasons for a DW in the first place is less stress and planning! At this point, I think I'm seriously considering a vendor for the cake. I really want a cake with fondant. That smooth, immaculate look is practically a requirement for a wedding cake(in my eyes) and I haven't seen any prior brides have a cake like that. Also I'm going to hire a TTD photog, but still debating on the wedding. Other than that, I'm gonna use dreams resources. They do 400+ weddings a year, so I'm going to trust they know what they are doing. I got the ultimate package and my cost would likely not even cover a decent venue by half in Phoenix/Scottsdale. Let alone all the stuff the package includes. But I am glad that some brides are really researching stuff because if I can save money it might make sense to do so! I've seen dreams reviews where brides had a high degree in everything and I like the fact that you can trade, so if anything is important to you, you can work it out! Sabers20, congrats! Oct 2013? Lol, you are gonna be a busy girl! Honestly, I'd do it that soon too if we could! Lol keep us posted with your date! I've seen Cancun studios on here, I think I'll check them out! It's so hard to choose! Sarah P, you are the first so far for 2014!! Please keep us posted as your date gets closer! So exciting!

    Oops I meant 2014.... Oct 2013 would be me thinking very adventurously LOL

          I've stayed there in a dolphin room. It was great. But we're going with the jr jacuzzi club for our wedding stay sp it's big enough for all the girls to get ready in. I also wanted a room in the tower to overlook the ceremony area. :) hope that helps!

            I have never been there (or even to Cancun!) bur we also went with Preferred club Jr Jacuzzi suite. I have heard that the tower rooms are a bit more updated so we'll see. I've also seen many reviews where the couple was upgraded once they checked in. I was tempted to book a basic room because of that, but just couldn't leave it to chance.

              Congrats to everyone planning their 2014 Dreams Cancun weddings! It is a beautiful spot for a destination wedding, they are real pros at what they do too. The gazebo is so picturesque, great place for a ceremony. Just to give you a little taste, here's a peek at the CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

              Hi!!! I am also a Dreams Bride. My wedding is for May/2014. Im so glad you created this thread because up until i started reading the posts i really hadn't researched too much. There are some great suggestions here that i will apply as well. I feel really overwhelmed with planning a whole wedding by myself so this is great to have some feedback from other brides who are to planning to or have wed in the same location!! thanks so much!! Brianna

              When in May? Ours is Wednesday the 7th! Also I don't have all the wedding specific answers, but any general questions about the resort I can answer. We stayed there a week last year.

                  So..... Do any of you girlies know what you are gonna trade from your packages? What packages did you choose? Anyone know how the trading works? I'm doing the Ultimate package. I'm thinking I'm gonna trade the photographer and maybe videographer, bridal makeup, and I'm not sure what else. Do you think I can get a lighted dance floor for the photographer/videographer?? Or maybe a dj for the reception? What do you all think?
