    Dreams Riviera Cancun (North Beach)
  1. Hi, I am having my reception on the Beach, I had also wanted dreams Cancun although I am glad now that we couldn't and ended up with this hotel, I am hoping it isn't too windy, I will let you know once I am home, as I think you can quite easily change the location.
  2. Hi, I am getting married on the 03rd of March and just planning all my final bits my wedding planner is Claudia and she has quoted around $900 to plug our own I pod into their sound system! has anyone took their own docking station or thought of a way around this? it seems really expensive?
  3. Hi, I am having a legal Ceremony and my planer has told me I have have a sand ceremony too x
  4. Oh that's not as bad then (still a lot if money though) I thought you meant on top of the package, I nearly had a heart attack ha.. Yes I think they are just as expensive, especially if you have an evening reception when you get back hopefully will be worth it though x

We had the 'Ultimate Package' and ended up paying close to $8K - not including the resort's photographer (we booked Del Sol), additional decor we brought with us and of course, our room/travel expenses. Yeah... We were shocked how "exact" they are. Also, keep in mind we had 46 guests and EACH guest over the 20 included in the package were accounted for (ie. champagne, cocktail hour, dinner, cake). They make sure of that! This is the extras we had (that I can remember): Gold tiffany chairs LED dancefloor DJ for 4 hours Sound system for ceremony Bamboo poles External vendor fees Welcome dinner Quote: Originally Posted by EmmaW Oh I think I will wait till I get there before telling him the cost.. Ha Ha... he can't refuse then.. and maybe cut a few things out. Luckily we only have 27 of us going including 2 children. when they say we get 20 people does that include the bride and groom? xx Oh I also meant the $3500 on top of the package was your package in with the £8k or is this on top of the package? xx

  8. Great thread, I'm thinking of getting him some new boxing gloves with the wedding date engraved on them, that's the part he can always keep! Then maybe a little box for the best man to give him on the morning with all the things in which he will have forgot plus some other bits Shave set Socks ( incase he gets cold feet) A hip flask with some rum in (for his nerves) A little newspaper clipping which is like an interview with me Old pictures from when we first met A pic of the dog in a veil lol A wallet with note 'to bless our marriage with good fortune' A shirt saying underneath management And I think l will put something like 'love does not make the world go around but it makes the journey worthwhile' on the box What do you think?
  9. Hi Everyone, so I have a bit of a personal question, I have gone with the ultimate package, but I'm wondering how much everyone else ended up paying in 'extras' when they got there, I have a price list but just want to make sure I have the right sort of price in mind, as it seems I will only get this price right before the wedding... these are the main extras I want - -LED dance floor -fire dancers (has anyone else had these)? -bridesmaid/arch/centerpieces flowers etc -some lighting -Music I was thinking of just going for the I pod dock to keep costs down? and then using the trio from the package for the ceremony rather than the cocktail hour? (has anyone done this) - Photographer it says on the form I can add hours on for $99 Has anyone done this? anyway for all the extras I am budgeting for about $3500 am I being to optimistic? any help would be great with this? x
  10. Hi, Has anyone tried wearing heels when getting married on the beach? I don't fancy wearing flats and only just realised this might be difficult ha x
  11. What date do you get married? I get married on the 03rd of March Are the plain white table linens included? I have the ulitimate package and didn't realise I would have to pay extra for these?
  12. Hi , Hi, I am getting married here in march, and from what I have previously read on here, and the advice offered by the hotel, north beach is the most private location! X
