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.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
