Resort: Dreams Sands Cancun
1. What made you decide on having a destination wedding?
We love to travel! The idea of a all inclusive, week long celebration with our closest friends and family sounded like the perfect fit for us. We also understand how expensive weddings can be. When weighing the options and looking at the cost of a wedding in our city compared to a destination wedding, it was a no brainer for us!
2. What made you decide on the destination/resort/venue?
I had heard from a friend that had stayed there and said it was wonderful. Also my awesome wedding planner Hannah just planned a wedding for another couple there and she said it was beautiful as well. This made us feel comfortable choosing Dreams Sands.
3. What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding?
I would say the biggest difficulty would be just basing decisions off of pictures and actually seeing it in person. It was a little bit difficult at the time but i think it was the best way for me. I am not a big planner and can get overwhelmed when i have too many options. You just have to trust your wedding planner.
4. What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise?
The highlight of my experience was how absolutely stunning the ceremony and reception was! I could not have asked for a better wedding day. The reception was amazing i would definitely recommend the light up dance floor, all 50 of my guest danced all night long, it was a blast! The best surprise was during our first dance they had fireworks shoot up behind us, it was magical!
5. How well was the resort and your Onsite Wedding Coordinator to work with?
The resort was perfect, every single person was so accommodating and so friendly. I can not rave enough about our onsite wedding coordinator Rubi. She is the best! She made sure everything was perfect for us on our big day. If you get a chance to work with her you are in good hands.
6. If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her?
The best advice i have is don't stress. Your wedding planner and wedding coordinator are professionals. They do this all the time and will make sure your day is amazing so just trust them!
7. Was there anything that you would change looking back?
Honestly, i wouldn't change anything! The entire week was the best week of my life. When i look back i could not think of one thing that would have made it more perfect. Destination weddings are the way to go!
