Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I got an email from Ana today and she attached a photo of a cake and some bouquet options. The photo of the cake had Cake Gold in the title but was only a single tier cake and was quite small. I assume that this is just the standard cake and the actual cake options on the Silver and Gold packages are similar to that on the Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort site.

 

I can see that there are going to be some misunderstandings along with way with Ana as I asked her a simple question but got an answer I didn't really understand but hey, everything will be fine when we all meet her to finalise our weddings.

Yeah, I've had some communication issues with her as well and it takes her forever to get back to me. I want to get my contract already so I can go over it and send it back. I emailed the sales department twice already asking to confirm the rooms are held for me since I'm waiting on them. I hear alot of brides say communication wasn't so hot when trying to plan but once they got there, the wedding coordinators were great. So I'm hopeful.

that's true, and I hear that the Claudia photographer group is really good too! I have seen some photo's from other brides on their wedding reviews.

So annoying that you cannot open things, eh? This is a new document that I have not seen before. She also sent some photos of lounge furniture that they can rent if anyone is thinking of doing a lounge type reception/gathering

I just booked my wedding at DRC for April 17, 2010. That was a long stressful process but I am sure it will be well worth the wait! I am very excited now that everything is all booked!!!

Hi everyone! I am new here but I am also getting married at Dreams Riviera Cancun. I haven't received a contract yet but Ana is supposed to be holding a date for me in February 2010. I think I am having the same communication issues :) It's nice that everyone can share their information here!

Great news on the photographers!! Does anyone know the names of the photographers that are allowed.. Claudia is not open on my date so I was going to use Cecilia Dumas.. Any word on her?? I sent Ana an email but we all know how long that can take for her to get to us.. Has anyone else had a real contract yet?? She keeps saying that my date is on hold and she will get back to me with the wedding details.. This makes me so nervous!!!

We don't want to make a big deal of the legal ceremony at all....just to make it seem as though the beach ceremony is the "real" thing. Do you happen to know if the resort requires a marriage certificate in order to have a symbolic ceremony. I have heard that some resorts require this and therefore we would have to do the legal ceremony before going to Mexico. Just wondering if anyone has looked into this yet.
I also would like to have a symbolic ceremony instead of a legal one. I was wondering who does the ceremony and would they let you have your own officiant (someone who is not affiliated with the resort)?

Hi Laura,
I think you can bring your own officiant in but you would have to pay the day-pass for the person. Double check with Ana though because it seems that the regulations at the other three Dreams resorts in the MR have different rules from DRC.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
