Dreams Puerto Aventuras Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

We are getting married May 9 at the Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort. So far, we are 20 ppl. We took the Dreams Ultimate Wedding Package, thinking it would cover all of the wedding expenses but now are realizing there will be extra money to spend! Apparently, they are not putting in the white chair covers during the reception. And we didn't know we would have to spend another 900 if we want to rent out a restaurant! So we told them, we'll go with whatever is included and we'll have the reception on the beach. I was wondering how did it go for ppl that did that? Also, I was told that we need to rent out the speakers for the reception as well, but then I hear it's free if you just ask for the Ipod station? How does that work? Also, I see that they charge 600 to 1300 for candles?! That's crazy!!! I'll bring my own from the Dollar store!

And how does it work for the centerpieces? Did most of you ladies  brought your own or did you rent them out? We were thinking of having one big table for all 20 ppl and so I just want to put some candles and maybe some flowers but nothing extravaganza! But I also don't want to put in all the suitcases and be charged for extra weight! I just wish we knew this a few months ago, instead of stressing about these little details a month before! I ordered on Ebay the organza chair decors, got them for 12 bucks, but yet I'm not even sure if we'll received them on time! Anyone that could give us some suggestions about where we can save some bucks we will really appreciate it! :)

Hi everyone,

 

I'm thinking of booking DPA for our wedding in Apr 2015. This forum's helping me a lot in making this decision. Thanks for all the great reviews.

We are going to have 50-60 pp at our wedding. I just want to make sure our guests can get entertained. Wedding's gonna be one day but does DPA have good entertainment (daily and nightly shows, dancing (club), games, etc)? 

 

It'd be great if you could comment on entertainment. Also, did any of your group leave the resort to do other activities, like shopping, sightseeing, etc?

Hi there! I just got back from DPA last sunday...the wedding was amazing! and yes, they have daily and night entertainment for all ages...we weren't bored one bit! The day after we arrive, we met with the Tour Guide and reserve a few activities...We went to this 3-1 activity where we went snorkeling, visit a xenote and an underground cave...was about 80 bucks for that one...The next day, the ladies went for a half-day tour to Tulum and the boys went on a fishing trip...both had lots of fun!

Just one bad thing that happened to us that soooo could have been prevented! We get to the airport and 2 of our guests had an expired passport!! One being my dad, and i was so pissed! luckily for him, he had a Chilean passport and was able to board with us...the other one, my friend's husband, wasn't so lucky as he only had his Canadian passport expired 2 months before...he had to wait for the next day to get an emergency passport and book another flight which ended up costing him another 800 bucks in total...so my advice, 7 months before your trip, ask everyone to send you a copy of their passport!

if you need more info, feel free to send me a message at loompadeedoo@hotmail.com ... it's all stilll fresh in my head! :)

Hey everyone! I just got engaged and we're looking at Dreams Tulum and Dreams Puerto Aventuras.  I got the email from Jacki today, but I'm unsure of how many guests we will have so I wanted to start with the smallest package... and upgrade later.  However it seems that if we start at the smallest one we can't pick the wedding time we want (4:00 p.m.).  Anyone else have this experience?? 

 

Thanks!

I feel like a post hound here, I really hope this board gets more active has time goes on! Our date got confirmed today for December 10th, 2015!   It's a SUPER long way away, but we have family that will do best with a large notice and I really wanted a Christmas wedding. When we decided to go to Mexico I knew I'd have to give up that dream, but I could always celebrate my anniversary around Christmas :)

I'm so jealous that you're wedding is so soon! Please post pics and details of your wedding :)


@ Bre Marie

 

I'm getting married next May 2015. We've been engaged since last July, and picked the resort last October.  It felt like it was miles away, but now its almost July and I feel like time just flew by.  I had been to another Dreams resort for my friend's wedding in Puerto Vallarta. We feel in love with the resort, and knew we wanted our wedding at one too. Just a matter of picking which one :)

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • 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.
