  1. Emily, I had the same situation and they DID NOT id them at all so if they were 12 before booking, they can remain 12 on your wedding bill! Hope that helps.
  2. Hello everyone! Due to busy schedules we haven't been able to post our review but as soon as it is ready in a day or two, we will be sure to post it! In the meantime our sideshow finally arrived after a couple of weeks of waiting!!!! ANEL WAS AMAZING!!!! She listened to our requests and went above and beyond with her creativity. She was GREAT to work with! HIGHLY RECOMMEND... http://300612espinalwed.dreamsriveriacancun.adventurephotos.com.mx/
  3. Congrats! EVERYTHING will be perfect!!! We got back from our honeymoon last week. We were at dreams from June 27-July 2 and we'd on the 30th. We will post a review within the next few days. Overall it was perfect beyond our expectations. Weather was PERFECT all week and our guests were thrilled!!! Special thanks to GINA who insured that everything went according to plan, her assistant JORGE who went above and beyond with his assistance, ANEL ( who was EXTREMELY amazing and creative with her shots) LINDA who helped make our ceremony perfect!!! Our DJ EDGAR CARDOSO and his MC FERNANDO for their amazing entertainment and MIKE CANTARELL for an extraordinary job in capturing all the great moments on video! Also, a shout out and special thanks to our photo booth assistant, "LA FOTOGRAFA" (lol) and to the amazing WAIT STAFF for pleasing us and all of our guests. Also, the DREAMS VIDEOGRAPHER from bluechannel was very cool. We had him for the last our of reception so that he wouldn't be in the way of our main videographer and we did receive that video and are pleased to say it was better than we expected. The champagne flutes also look great. We received them this week!! THE ENTIRE wedding staff was AMAZING...can't thank them enough!!!! As for CONCIERGE AND FRONT DESK - HORRIBLE!!!! (atleast for US they were the very WORST!!!) We will give extensive review soon but basically we organized paradise catamAran for thank you to guests and the concierge WOULD NOT let them enter to pick us up. Same with our cocobongo trip. On 2 consecutive days we were nearly 2 hours late to both And ended up losing 2 hours of our catamaran trip thanks to them. But paradise catamaran was amazing and compensated beyond our imagination. Highly recommend them!!!! So future couples just be careful. We will have more details on this nightmare in our review. That was the most disappointing thing about our trip. Also we ended up paying 30 dollars to customs for "taxes" since we had so many things that weren't considered "personal items" - yes that would be decorations! But rest assured that your weddings will work out better than you could have imagined. We are still waiting on pics and video... Slideshow should be available soon! Congrats to everyone! Lindsey it will all work out wonderfully...
  4. Thanks and congrats to you as well. Will most likely see you there since we leave Monday afternoon!
  5. Leaving this Wednesday morning can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I remember yesterday we started the planning and the day has final,y come
  6. Hey guys: We are leaving on June 27 and booked www.paradisecatamarans.com for June 29 for our group of 50. We are paying $2430 total. It will be from 4 hours and this price includes round trip transportation, we get to snorkel, snacks and complimentary soft drinks, there will also be a sound dock so we can play iPod and CDs.. Also they have agreed to make a stop at another resort to pick up 5 of our guests that will not be staying with us at dreams. This is at no additional cost. Basically it's 1350.00 for up to 50 guests ( if less they have cheaper rates.) ground transportation is 480 for up to 50 people ( that's standard bus for all groups up to 50) . Snacks are 12 per person and open bar 15 per person. We took a tally and opted not to have an open bar. Reviews on trip advisor Are amazing and Mark Malkasian provides amazing and prompt customer service. Let me know if you are interested and I can provide additional info OR U can simply visit website above. Hope this is helpful as we too took our time and read plenty of reviews to guarantee that our guests enjoy and have an amazing excursion. This replaces our rehearsal dinner due to the insane fees for restaurants which we rather spend elsewhere. It's also our thank you for going out of their way to book their stay.
  7. Thanks! yes we will be there until July 2nd around noon. Good luck with everything! Maybe we do indeed cross paths...
  8. I am trying to order the chair sashes and table overlays can someone please tell me what size I should order the over lays for the round guest tables As well as the sweetheart table. This would be of GREAT help! thanks!
  9. We are having our ceremony on June 30, 2012 and were told yesterday that peonies are no longer in season.
  10. Hey Sarah! You made a beautiful bride!!! Congrats!!! Can you tell me how much you paid for your bouquet? what price did they give you? Thanks!
  11. Hey guys!! Haven't commented here in a while although we come constantly to read all of the great reviews and to see some of the amazing slideshows. Congrats to all the already married couples and to the ones like us that are only a couple of weeks away. Feels like yesterday we were not sure of our destination for the wedding and here we are leaving on the 27th of June. So EXCITING! We just have one question for all of those who have already been at Dreams Riviera. How does the resort manage the all inclusive benefits? Do all of the guests wear wrist bands that must be worn at all times? We don't know how we feel about having that in our pictures. Also how do they know that any random person isn't joining the reception if we have it on the pool deck. Just some questions that make us curious and were wondering if anyone knows the answer. Basically how does the resort manage the all inclusive part of it all since i saw in website that they dont require wristbands. We're a bit confused. Thanks and happy planning to all!!!
