Dreams Puerto Aventuras Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Okay it has taken me the better part of my morning to get caught up on just a portion of all these posts but I am SO glad that I found this site!

 

I'm totally new here and don't actually have anything booked yet, but DPA is my #1 choice and we're looking at either January or April of 2010. I'm still nervous that I don't have a lot of time to organize everything but from the sounds of it, a lot of you have had really great experiences so I'm hoping your luck will run my way!

 

Gina & Andrea - your pictures are beautiful!! Thank you so much for posting!

 

If anyone has new or old ideas about gift ideas for the OOT bags, can you please post them? I picked up a few along the way but can definitely use some more!

 

Also, for those of you that have been or already booked your wedding, did you contact the WC before booking your flights and packages, or did everything get done at the same time? I'm not entirely sure which order to start this in!

 

Thank you!

Oh yes and one more question. Part of our debate between January and April is the weather. I've been to Playa del Carmen in April before and was lucky to have a full week of sun, sun, sun but I've heard that it can also be more rainy than in January? On the flip side, what temperatures are considered "cool" that we'd be expecting in January? I don't really want to worry about packing evening clothes on top of everything else that I need to remember! Thanks again!

Yay for another (potential) DPA bride! Welcome Meghan...I hope you choose DPA! In your first post you asked what package and how many guests we had. I did the Ultimate Package and had 30 guests.

 

As far as OOT bags, there is a whole section dedicated to those. You can start here

For my wedding I contacted the WC first to see what wedding dates they had available. In order to "hold" your wedding date you have to put down a deposit (I think it's $500 USD) and book your flight and room. In my situation, DPA had June 18 available so we contacted our travel agent and booked our flight and room. After we booked we informed the WC of our info.

 

I'm afraid that I can't answer your January or April question...but hopefully other ladies will be able to! I don't think you'll have a problem with weather in either month. I got married in June and the weather was great aside from 2 very very short (like 15 minute) periods of rain.

Great thank you Gina!! I'm still trying to get familiar with how the forum works so I appreciate the link for the OOT gifts!!

 

Since I'm waiting to get some price quotes right now, I'll email DPA to get an idea of what dates are available and hopefully all the details will come rolling in at the same time!

Meghan,

 

We went through our travel agent who contacted the WC and found out available dates within a couple of hours. It seems to be a lot easier to communicate through our travel agent. Also all my guests are going through our travel agent so I don't have to organize anyone.

 

As for the time of year, I googled usual weather for those months. I don't remember Jan or April, sorry. I chose May because kids are in school so there will be less people at the resort.

Did most of you just go for a week long trip? I'm trying to juggle my dates with what works best for the marriage requirements in Mexico (arrival 4 business days ahead). Do the four witnesses also have to be there 4 business days ahead, or just any 4 days ahead - I was a little confused on that one.

 

Also, who did the legal marriage in Mexico vs. the civil/symbolic option? I'm just wondering if it would be less frustration dealing with all the translations and stuff.

 

And I'd love to read more reviews so hopefully the new posts work!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
