Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I just started doing my DIY stationary.  I just purchased all the materials online (including envelopes) about $100 shipped.  It will be enough  (hopefully) for the invitations, reply cards, thank you cards, seating cards, and ceremony programs.  I just need to purchase a paper cutter which I'll get at Staples.

 

I used this website for the invites and downloaded the template they have.

http://www.formal-invitations.com/instructions/make-invitations.html?Screen=USL&Code=invitation-instructions

 

Pretty simple.  I'm doing something like the 2nd one with royal blue cardstock, white organza and green satin ribbon around it.  I'm also doing the reply cards the same way but without the ribbon.

 

I also did a monogram using this website:

How this helps anyone who needs some ideas.  I'll post pictures once I start working on them.

My wedding is April 30th... Im getting BEYOND STRESSED ... 

The resort is beautiful however Eva is telling me the only option for my reception is the ballroom... and the whole point of having a mexico wedding is to have something outdoors... I dont want the beach because I dont want to be on sand and it will be dark....

Im wondering if its because there are other weddings booked... So many previous brides have had access to pool deck or seaside girll.

Is anyone else having this problem at all? wheres everyone's ceremony,.... im super sad =(

Im arriving on your wedding day!!  We are set for May 3rd!!

We leave in 45 days!!!  I am tying up loose ends and am working on our music, finally...

 

I decided to use a song for the sand ceremony, but can anyone tell me how long this usually is?

I love Jack Johnson - Angel but it is only 2 minutes. I'm worried it's not long enough.

 

Also, anyone know about how many minutes of music we need to get the parents and bridal party down the aisle? I'm getting married at the gazebo and I'm not sure where we we start from!!

 

Also, if anyone can share their song choices for processional, recessional, walking down the aisle, etc that would be a great help!!!

I would have to say music was the last thing I worked on and it was super hard for me to decide on. I only have 9 days left till we leave for Mexico and I'm all ready to go!!! 

 

For the music I rented the sound system and I will be bringing a CD and IPad to play the music just in case one doesn't work I atleast have a backup. I'm not sure if you hired the DJ but from a previous review I had read that the DJ can run the sound system for your ceremony so if you haven't already maybe ask him if he would do this for you, and as far as I know there is no extra charge. That way he will know when to cut songs and if need be replay a song.

 

I'm not sure how long the sand ceremony and bridal party walk down the aisle to the gazebo is going take. I can't imagine the sand ceremony taking more then a couple minutes but for the bridal party maybe have 1 very long song. For the ceremony I used all Vitamin String Quartet songs, which in general are longer.  Here are the songs I picked:

 

Ceremony: All of these are by the Vitamin String Quartet
Guests Seating Don't Stop Believing-VSQ cover of Journey
  Wonderful Tonight-VSQ cover of Eric Clapton
  Love Story- VSQ cover of Taylor Swift
Groom & Bridal Party Can't help falling in Love- VSQ cover of Michael Buble
   
Bride Marry Me- By Train-there is an instrumental version

comes up when you google VSQ Marry Me (has a CD cover with a bird on it)

Sand Ceremony/Signing the Papers Just the Way You Are-VSQ cover of Bruno Mars
Exit I'm Yours-VSQ version of Jason Mraz (also download reg version)

 

 

Also, don't forget a bridal party entrance song, your entrance song, dance songs and cake cutting and if your doing garter/bouquet toss. So much small stuff!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
