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.

    • Yes, this happens all the time. One thing to consider is maybe to have the wedding at an off-site location where all your guests can go. There are several in Puerto Vallarta and Cancun Mexico. Most hotels offer a free wedding, but if a majority of guests are not staying there you'll be paying for not only the day pass, but for the food and beverage for each outside guest. Thanks - Sadie  
    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
