      hey guys!

      i'm am new to this and this is my first post!!!! i'm from the UK (London) and got engaged in May 2011 and we are planning on getting married in April 2013 at the Dreams Adventuras Puerto..... any ideas, tips etc would be greatly appreciated, also some of the photographs on here are amazing! were they taken by a photographer in the resort???? what were your thoughts on the resort itself, we have a wide age group coming and we initially looked at the MP but then i came across this and fell in love with how beautiful it looks.....

      look forward to some replies!!!!!

        Hi everyone!

         

        Brand new to the forum and after much debate just decided to book my destination wedding at DPA! I have just sent in my date request form. I'm hoping to get a date in May 2012. I have listed my 1st 3 choices and my desired time for the ceremony is at 5 pm. I was wondering how far in advance everyone else booked? Since May is 10 months away, do you think I will get a date and time that I want!? Also, how long does it take the resort to confirm your date?

         

        I am considering having my reception at El Patio, but I have a couple of reservations about this................I understand that there is no A/C, but are there windows open to the outside to allow airflow? Also, can they accomondate 50 ppl, and will they clear the tables away after dinner to allow dancing? These definitely might be questions for the wedding planner to answer, but I thought it may be worth a try to find some answers on here first!

         

        This forum is a great resource as I have already browsed it and found answers to some of my questions! Really awesome that there are so many pre/post wedding brides that are willing to help out complete strangers!

            Is it just me or is this just a bridal thing where time seems to go so slooow... its torturous..May seems so far away...how does one do it?  did anyone have guests that stayed outside of the dreams resort? and if so, was it hard to get them in for the day?

                  HI Allie, 

                   

                  I have a feeling your date/time shouldn't be a problem to get - as I am told i am still the only bride booked for my wedding date - and its 6 months away!
                   

                  We wanted our reception at El Patio as well, however a few things to note : 1: if the hotel is busy (at high capacity) they will NOT reserve it for you. We were told first we could have it as an option, later to find out its not even an option since in February the hotel will have too many other guests, so they want to keep it open to everyone. They wouldn't even tell me if i could have a non private reception there either....
                  2: WE REALLY wanted to be near the water..we thought El patio was a perfect happy medium. its "covered" so youre not in the open on the beach for a reception - but youre close enough to see the water...but then someone pointed out to me that at night you dont even SEE the water cause its so black. which is completely true to another wedding i attended in Mexico -i rememeber us being close to the water, but when it gets dark not being able to really see it that well anyway....

                  We decided to book the Poolside instead. A: because i didnt want to lose the option of booking if another bride did before me. And B: I did NOT want my reception inside, in air conditioned room. So your options start to dwindle quite fast! I'm not too keen on our grandparents walking on sand all night for the reception either, if we went the beach route..

                  We were told the sun sets on the other side of the hotel, and with te lights and pool lit up - its quite nice. BUT AGAIN, its not going to be 100% private because the restaurant attached to it, has to stay open :(

                   

                  SO, having said that -- since your wedding is in May, im not sure what the capacity at the hotel will be like , but id assume much lower than February - So im sure they may even give it to you as a private option and allow you to book it! ;) but if they DONT, don't worry as there are still other options to choose from :)

                   

                  3:I was told that YES, they create a dance floor area, inside El Patio so thats not a problem. I am not sure if they move tables around, or have a section thats designated for the dancing part.

                   

                  Hope that helps out somewhat!

                    Ladies,

                    I leave in 3 days....and my wedding is in a week from tomorrow!  Bags are mostly packed (well, at least the wedding stuff) and we are starting to pack many of our outfits, etc!  I will post a review when I get back.  A few things I wanted to add:

                     

                    1. We are going to Coco Bongo in Playa del Carmen on one of the nights.  It's pricey, but all inclusive (resort pick-up, entrance, drinks) and you can look it up on youtube--it looks like a lot of fun!

                    2. Make sure you check out the live cam for DREPA before you leave. I've been comparing it to the weather report (which shows rain every day) and it couldn't be more opposite!  Most of the days it's beautiful!

                    3. Utilize the DREPA page on Facebook to get your questions answered--E Concierge Rebecca is amazing and extremely responsive, and she will help you find out answers to local questions, etc. too.

                     

                    Wish us luck!
