Pool Side Weddings?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was just wonderring if anyone has ever had or heard of having there wedding ceremony poolside as opposed to on the beach which we definitly do not want or at the gazebo which is what we would do if not poolside. We are torn between Dreams and Riu resort and if one of them offers a pool side ceremony it would make the decision process easier.

Also, I have heard many good things about both Dreams and the Riu resorts, If anyone has any reason why they picked one over the other I would love to hear from you.

Thanks so much,

Jackie

at dreams, they have a really private terrace next to the oceana pool that would be a beautiful spot for a wedding BUT they also have a fabulous gazebo so that is more commonly used...have beautiful view of the water but no sandy feet...i posted a million pics so look around, i am sure you will find them (in cabo accomodations section "dreams wedding pics" and "tammys dreams pics")

Yes Ive seen some of the pictures that you have put up of both Dreams and the Riu. They are both so gorgeous. Maybe I'll go back and look at them and see if I can spot any places for a poolside wedding. The Gazebos are also beautiful and if all else fails we wont have much of a problem using one of them. But for some reason I have this picture in my head of a wedding poolside at dusk.

Thanks so much for all your great replies to all my silly questions.

Maybe with lots of little luminarias (sp?) all around for lighting. I love the idea of a poolside wedding!

Why I picked Dreams over Riu: We were torn between these two AI resorts, but were leaning towards Dreams when we went for our site visit. We stayed and the Riu and LOVED it. We had tons of fun. However, this is a PARTY resort. Lots of loud musicrockon.gif , lots of activities, lots of drinking, etc.shots.gif Not that this is a bad thing if that's what you're in to- again, we had a blast while we were there last month. But, we loved the smaller, more laid-back atmosphere of Dreams when we went for a visit. Because it is a smaller property, there were just less people in general (read:less gawkers for our wedding!) and it just felt more intimate for our families. I think it just depends on what you want.

I've been to both places, so if you have any other questions, just ask!

Jackie - I think just about every hotel down there would be willing to do this. But you should definitely talk to the properties you're interested in to find out how many people the pool area can accomodate (might be less than the beach).

Hi Jackie - I visited dreams - the gazebo is beautiful. The pool, though, is very crowded. Some of the hotels will clear the pool area in the afternoon. I don't think that would work at Dreams, but you can ask.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
