Dreams Puerto Aventuras Brides - POST HERE!

I am having my bridesmaid carry a parasel in white instead of flowers.
We got the ultimate package, but really only because we wanted the dinner, cocktail hour and music. I can do without the hair, makeup and extra flower stuff.
We will see if they allow us to substitue for other things( longer music set ex.)??

The review on TripAdvisor made me question our decision to switch locations. This thread has helped immensely. I look forward to the reviews after some of you return from your weddings. Thanks to everyone for your posts and the helpful info.
Some of the reviews have made me a bit nervious too! But like others have mentioned, some people only look for the bad things, so they only see the bad things. Also, I keep thinking that because it just opened, they are still just smoothing things out. Plus, I am not expecting things to be "perfect." I am marrying the love of my life in a beautiful location with my closest friends and family. Nothing could happen that would ruin that (except maybe a hurricane!)

How cool to have a renewal vow ceremony.
I am also excited to see the weddings and reviews over the coming months. I think it is a little bit early to take all of those reviews to heart since the resort is newly opened AND I agree some people find the bad in anything.
I can't wait to marry the love of my life also!!

What made you girls choose DPA? I am so worried that I picked the wrong resort and the pricing doesn't suit my guest.. but at the same time it's MY wedding
After reading all your post tho, I do feel a little better...

I figure, no matter where I chose to get married I am going to be concerned if my guests are going have a good time. One of the reasons people want to go is because it is an excuse to have a vacation and I want to make sure they have a good time.
The new reviews that are good did make me feel better though.

After all, I am going to a great destination to renew the vows I said years ago to an amazing man that has loved me, provided for me and always put me before himself for the last 34+ years (will be 35 at vow renewal). Our wedding in 1974 was a huge "all the trimmings" formal affair when we were still kids (him 21 and me 19). This time around is going to be relaxed and fun. So we will go with the flow and love every minute b/c this is all icing on the cake to us. We have had a wonderful life together, have 2 beautiful children that have grown into amazing adults. What could diminish any of that?
Bring on DPA !!

It is so funny that you mentioned this. I was just on Trip Advisor and read the same review and flipped out!!! I called a friend of mine who does alot of travelling and asked if ever uses Trip Advisor. He said he's been on websites such as this, but does not pay any attention to them. He has been to Mexico and Riviera Maya several times and said the resorts there are all beautiful. He said Dreams have a great reputation and not to worry.
You are going down with a group of people you love and you will have a great time no matter where you stay!!! I felt so much better after talking with him. My advice-stay off of Trip Advisor, it will drive you crazy!!! That's what i'm doing.
Hope this helps.
