      It was wonderful!!  The resort is very nice!  We also visited Secrets Silversands and Dreams Riviera Cancun..we actually decided to have our wedding at Dreams Riviera..

       

      You will not be disappointed in NOW Sapphire..they were wonderful!! 

       

      If I can give you future Brides some really random info...they technically cannot give straws out at the Swim Up Pool Bar..sometimes they would give them to us but they have a sign posted saying they are protecting the environment.  Some of the other bars will give you a straw but you have to ask - we ended up taking a bunch from the coffee shop.  If we were having our wedding there (I know it sounds silly) I would have added straws to my OOT Bags!  It's hard to drink a frozen drink without a straw!  Silly I know..

       

      Also..if you have smokers - they don't have ash trays at the Swim Up Pool Bar either..they are pretty hard to find any where actually.  Again - If we were having our wedding there I would have gotten a bulk pack of the cheap plastic ones and either added them to the "smokers" OOT Bags..or just brought a bunch with me to the pool and/or beach! 

       

      So..their is some random info for ya!   If you have any questions please..let me know!!

          I sure can!

           

          Hands down the Dreams resort is just amazing!  The rooms are unbelievable alone...right when we walked in it was just breathe taking!  Everything about it.  I love how the resort looks itself - very beautiful.  I love their ceremony options and their reception options.  Desire's is a GREAT place for the Wedding "after party" too!  I have stayed at a Dreams before so we already know the service is outstanding and the food is wonderful.  We have a lot of guests whom have never been to an all inclusive before - and I know DRC would wow them from the second they walk into the resort.  I honestly can't say enough great things about how everything looked.  Just incredible.  Even now the more we think about it the more we fall in love with it being perfect!

           

          Now Sapphire was nice as well - it would be a great Plan B.  It would make for a beautiful wedding!  It just didn't have that same "wow" factor as Dreams.  We got an incredible deal and knew that Now is owned by the same company (still working on the switch I think) so we knew it'd be a great resort - which was why we chose to stay there for this last trip. 

           

          The WC's at both resorts were wonderful.  Honestly we were even worried about Dreams being a little pricey but once we saw it we were already making exceptions and agreeing that we would somehow just make it work.  Probably offer our guests a choice between 5 & 7 day stays - to give them a less expensive option.  Although Now is nice.. Dreams is unbelievable - literally from the second you walked in the door!! 

           

          Hopefully that helps!

           

          If you need anything else let me know!

            Hi,

            I stayed at both Dreams and the Now Sapphire last June for 3 nights each.  Both resorts are abosletly beautiful and the food is equally as good.  You can't go wrong with either.  I decided on the Now Sapphire and my wedding is on June 11, 2011.  The rooms at the Dreams are one of the nicest that I have ever seen.  The rooms are nicer at the Dreams then the Now Sapphire.  I liked the overall hotel at the Now Sapphire better.  The pool area and beach area seemed to be more spread out at the Now Sapphire, which I liked.  I also loved the wedding options and beach area for the Now Sapphire.  Both are beautiful resorts, but I had that "wow" factor when I went to the Now Sapphire.

             

            Good Luck!

              Hi Ladies,

               

              I'm getting married at the Now Sapphire on June 11, 2011.  My ceremony and cocktail hour is on the beach.  I requested the terrace next to the beach for my reception... but now I'm not sure which I had requested.  I feel silly to say that I didn't realize that there was a Tequila Terrace and a Beach Terrace.  Can someone explain the difference to me... Does anyone have pictures of the two?

                  Help! So I'm about to send in my reservation form in the next day or so, and need to indicate where the hold the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner reception. For sure ceremony on the beach, but now I'm not so sure on the cocktail and dinner.. Based on all the pictures out there, I thought I was set on the Tequila Terrace, but in showing my FI the options, he liked the beach terrace. Doesn't seem like many people choose that though, why not?? Thoughts? Thanks ladies! :)

                    Do you have the contact info for the DJ  that is included in the Divine package?  Did you decide to use the one that is included or someone else?
