Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Hello all...

For those of you looking for a resort the Dreams Resorts are opening a brand new Dreams in the Riviera Cancun area. It is a 5-star luxury family resort approx 20 minutes from the Cancun airport and conveniently located between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. The scheduled opening date is October 2009 and apparently they are on track for opening on time.

Here is the website link for the new resort
http://www.dreamsresorts.com/drerc/

The planning process has been a bit teadiuous up to this point but this should change very soon. So, if you have been trying to get info from the WC please try to read through our posts or post your own question because the WC(s) is/are flat out busy (poor Claudia & Cecelia). Currently Dreams is using the WC from the Dreams Cancun location to help out with the weddings at Dreams Riviera Cancun (DRC). It may take some time in receiving a reply on emails so be patient and like I said, use us here as a resource tool; it is likely we are all asking the same questions.

There are a few of us that have booked our wedding dates so let's introduce ourselves and share our wedding dates.

Please feel free to send a PM or post your date directly to the thread and I will do my best to keep it updated.

Who are you and what is your wedding date?

Congrats Jennifer! Are you getting excited? Any plans to do a site visit once it is open? Also, were you one of the people able to defer the deposit until the resort is open while still reserving your wedding date? I have sent an email to Claudia but waiting to hear (I know she is incredibly busy so I am being patient).

I just spoke with Cecelia (Claudia is out of the office until Monday I have been told) and I confirmed June 19, 2009!!! What time are the rest of you having your ceremony. The sunsets in June around 7:30 so I picked 6:00 for my ceremony (I want to make sure I have the best light for the pictures).

 

Other than the basis price list I have not received any other information. I have learned that in about 2 weeks pictures of the wedding gazebo and reception loactions will be available!!! I am sure the rest of you are as excited as I am about this, although I am certain it will be AMAZING!!!

 

Right now I am trying to decide about group rates. Did anyone set something up through the resort or are you using private TAs?

I have the same question. Not sure if I should book group or individual. Any suggestions? Also, what email address have you used to get in touch with the wedding coordinators?

Thanks RCBlondie! Congrats to you too! I am very excited! I will be visiting during Thanksgiving and hopefully will also get to meet with the wedding coordinator while I am down. I am really excited for that visit! Are you doing a site visit at all?

We actually just sent in our payment via bank check. I just wanted to get it taken care of and cross that off of the list.

    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations. 
    • Thank you! I did not make these. I purchased them from a business. They are still for sale if you are interested!
