    Thanks for the quick replies everyone, and I will post some pics and details about my wedding after it happens.
    Now for all who booked Claudia or Citlalli for their wedding photos. What exactly did the package include... we wanted her to just take pictures for the day (12 hours) and she wanted $3250.

      I'm only doing 3 hours, we're having a very small wedding and didn't think it was necessary to have 500 pictures of 20 or so people. 12 hours is a long time, I don't think any of us have booked her for that much time, I believe the 1850 package is for 6 or 8 hours, can't quite remember. but I'm sure the other girls can tell you. Did you get claudia or a team member? I booked Citlalli, I'm so excited, it took me forever to pick a photographer!

            Also, I forgot to say, that 12 hours is a LONG time for a photographer, and the price seems really reasonable. I know a lot of other photographers I looked into were about the same price or more expensive and they were only for 6-8 hours, so I think you're getting a great deal!

                Hi everyone! I found some good pics of the garden set-up. I couldn't believe it when I saw these pics. They are from the wedding that we saw when we were there last October vacationing. We weren't engaged at the time, but after seeing this wedding, we knew there was no other place we'd rather be for our day! The bride's dress was gorgeous. Check it out. The website is
                www.honeymoongiveaway.com
                Click on "Photo Gallery" and then "Dreams Cancun". The best pics are towards the bottom.
                Hope this helps!

                  I have attached (I think) some additional pics in a Word Doc. My parents were at Dreams Cancun the last week of Feb. They saw two weddings. One was very small, with a beach reception. The other was 50-60 people, with a tower lobby/terrace reception. My mom thought this was a very nice set-up as the tower lobby is completely open to the terrace. It was very windy while they were there, and this way people could eat out of the wind. The pics were taken during set-up, before all decor was complete, but at least you can kind of get an idea of some options.
                  Hope this helps,
                  Susan

                    Susan, thanks for sharing the pictures. Have you decided where you are having your reception yet?

                      I think it will depend on how many people we end up with. I'm thinking of using the Club Tower Lobby/Terrace area, my only concern with that is where we'd put the dance floor. They'd probably have to clear some tables after dinner. And, I'm not sure how many people they can accomodate in that area. My second choice would be the garden area. That was the set-up we saw when we were there. Very pretty. I think the sand reception is beautiful too, but I don't know how practical it is for a large group. Have you decided yet?
