Dreams Puerto Aventuras Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Helloooo ladies,

 I am glad to say that I am also a DPA bride to be woot.gif. We are getting married on October, 8 2010 and are extremely excited to have chosen this resort.  I would like to Thank you all soo much for all the information on this thread.  It has helped a whole lot.  We are only 6 weeks away from our travel and wedding and have so much to do.  Iâ€m just glad I found this forum and know that there are a few brides in October as well.

 

I have a question for you, hope someone can help me:

 

-I was a little worried about getting my hair and makeup by a complete stranger.  Therefore, I requested a portfolio from the hair and makeup stylist. The spa manager then email me a professional portfolio from Wendy Veronica Canul Valencia.  Has anyone used her services? 

 

Thanks!!

Blu

I haven't even thought about that yet, but that's great that they sent you the portfolio.  Did it have pictures?  If so, would you mind posting them?  I only have a week now and would love to see whatever they sent you.

I would also love to see the pictures from the portfolio if you are able to post or email them. :)

 

I was about to book appointments at the spa for hair and makeup for myself and bridesmaids...only to find out that they only have one staff working in the spa! That means everyone would have to be done one person at a time. My wedding is at 2pm, so we definitely don't have time for that...did anyone else run into this problem?? Or is there more staff brought in for weddings?

Hi everyone - Getting married at DPA 11/30/2010 - i have 61 guests booked! Any reassurance that we made the right choice with picking DREAMS and/or pictures you may have would be great. I have rad some concerning reviews with respect to the hotel which have me in edge, as wellas my experience with Jacy so far.

My details:-

 I have reserved the El Patio for my dinner (mind you they refuse to close the restaurant to other guests - unless they are under capacity - even though they can only sit 20guests) - i have booked the Barracuda beach bar for my after party "exclusive" to my wedding - - but at a cost of $12 per person per hour (first it was $18 per person per hour - my wedding planner had to fight that one); I have a reggae band booked and a violinist for the ceremony!!!! I have the Ultimate wedding package, which only cover up to 20guests – and with all the extraâ€s I require and the décor I want – I am WAY WAY over budget! However, all is worth it if this hotel delivers??? Any words of comfort greatly appreciated.

Also - did anyone have things shipped to the hotel prior to arriving (i have 35 sombreros going for all the guys, ordered from Mexico City - nervous)

Hi everyone,

I think i am the newest member - just trying to catch up on all the posts. I am gettign married on November 30 2010 (arriving the 20th to DPA). Not sure if anyone else did - but i hired a wedding planner to help me book all my guests, set up a webpage and pretty much manage all the communication b/w me and Jacy.

In terms of decor -

 

 

 

 

 

 

the above link is an idea i got from my first choice hotel - DREAMS Cancun Riviera - - i am having the sombreros made in Mexico City for the guys and delivered to the hotel and i bought the pashminas for the girls. I also used SHORECHIC for most of my decore ideas - like the sand dollar table cards and cake topper and hand woven fans. I am bringing with me flip flops for all the girls to change into after the dinner - - before the beach bar party (which i reserved exclusivley for my guests).

My Welcome bags - i am going to try to have a tabel set up in the lobby and persoanlly hand them out as people arrive. Almost all my guests are coming on the same plane - so it shouldnt be too difficult. Also, since we are arriving 7days before everyone - this shouldnt be a problem.

My only stess now is the music - need to put a play list together, bringing my own IPOD for the beach bar and booked the reggae band too. AND the food and resturant - the hotel will not agree to allow us to book it "excluively" till one week before - :(

so happy i found this forum!!!!

Any new ideas or advice greatly appreciated. CONGRATS to all the brides.

Hi Jesken! I am getting married on Dec 3, 2010, and we arrive on Nov 30...what time is your wedding??? I am also new to this site, and am glad to have found someone who is going to be there around the same time! This site is sooo packed with information, and has tons of reviews from brides who have returned, everyone has said great things about the resort, so I don't think we should worry too much. The recurring theme seems to be "don't stress, because it will be perfect" and I guess you'll get a chance to work out all the details with Jacy once you get there.

 

I was thinking about reserving El Patio as well, did you have to pay a rental fee for it with the Ultimate pkg?

Hi Dreams2010 - Congratulations!!!!

OMG - i wish i knew about this forum 8months ago when i started planning.

My wedding is at 5pm - ceremony. My sister is doing my hair - and after 10days in the sun, I dont think i will need much makeup.

We have "requested" El Patio - however, this is up to hotel capacity - - and yes, there is an extra charge above package of $750.00. I think it is safe to say there i a charge for EVERYTHING - they are charging me $5 for each candle for my Candelabras - LOL. The pic on my profile is my table settings, except i will have round tables - as the hotel will not allow rectangular tables in El Patio (if we get it).

I have a wedding planner - who has done all the communicating with Jacy so far - but she has told me that in her 9years of wedding planning, she has never encountered so many 'extra' charges and so much delay between emails - up to 3weeks at times.

But i agree- i think i just need to relax - i know when he day comes - it will all work out - i have to trust that all the work and planning will all come together - LOL!!!

we will definitely meet up in Mexico - that would be great!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
