I got married on April 29th and it was AMAZING! We had the Ultimate wedding package.
We arrived at Dreams with all our guests on April 26th. We packed swim suits and cover ups in our carry ons because we arrived around 11am. The resort took care of getting our luggage to our room and it made its way there before we did. From the moment we entered the gates we were pampered!!
Due to availability our room didn't get upgraded but it was gorgeous! We stayed in 2508.
Sunday we hung at the pool bar and took advantage of the pool activities.. the entertainment crew is so much fun! Sunday night we all met at the lobby bar for a little meet and greet.
Monday night we went out into Cancun with our friends for the Bachelor/ Bachelorette night (through Apple vacations)... Not the best experience due to the fact that they allow sixteen year olds in the bars.
Tuesday we played a lot of beach volleyball, beer ball, beer pong, pool games and again hung at the pool bar... Luckily most of our friends know how to pace themselves so it was a long day.
Wednesday... The BIG day... They were calling for 100% all week and until about 11am that morning... It didn't rain once all day!
We all had our hair and makeup done at the resort spa and we were all so happy with what they did! We all brought pictures on our phones of what we wanted. (4 bridesmaids, my mother and my grandmother.. and me!)
Ceremony was at the Gazebo.. We didn't go crazy with options. We had the basic setup and added the small flower arrangements to the gazebo. It was stunning. We got married at 6pm so there weren't many people in the pool and no one was on the beach.
We noticed a lot of the 4 and 5pm weddings people were still playing beach volleyball right behind the gazebo. Just something I noticed. Not sure if the weddings found it distracting.
Our cocktail hour was on the beach.. Again no upgrades and it was made beautiful. Highly recommend the Mexican mariachi band! They were so much fun.
Our reception was also held on the beach. We had 6 tables with lights under them, a light up dance floor and DJ. I loved it! There was definitely enough lighting with the standard lighting included. The DJ was awesome. He kept everyone on the dance floor. Our meal was the filet and we could cut it with a fork! It was that good.
Our guests left on the 30th and May 2nd. My husband and I left on May 7th. It was the perfect wedding week and honeymoon. The hospitality and food was five star!
I brought my own photographer so as soon as I get my pictures back from him I will share or feel free to friend me on FB.
I hope this helps ladies.. Any questions please let me know.
