Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Also, anyone that is ordering bouquets for their bridesmaids, do you know how much you are paying for each one? Im trying to decide if it is worth it or not, because it seems like any extras are so expensive.

Ok, i'm really confused about this. I was never told anything about having a certain amount of people. We have 35 ppl including my fiance and I and they said it was ok. Maybe it's something new they are doing?

Or maybe it has to do with the season? There aren't many weddings right now so maybe that's why they said we could have it.

we aren't! I had considered it then figured an extra $300 for an hour of the DJ plus the extra per person for the open bar, it just wasn't worth it! Our reception is over at 8:30 so we plan on just going to Desires :)

Mine are $60

But, Eva quoted me wrong in the beginning and Lorena told me later on that they were I think $85. I sent her the email Eva had sent me and they said they would honor the price.

Our bouquets are the very last one in the bouquet catalog (the bright colored one with oranges, pinks and yellows)

I know that is the alternative option. Its insane how much they are charging for some things....

Yeah I'm having 40 and they told me I have to have 60 for the pool deck.  So now I have to have the terrace.  They said if there is no other wedding that day that I can have the location.

I'm starting to really freak out about the packing and going through customs!!! I thought I had it all under control but I'm starting to worry. I gave my mom a bunch of stuff to put in their suitcases and to split between 4 people, but I think my fiance and I still have over $300 each!! I really hope they don't stop us! 

 

Anyone who's already gotten married have any insight?

hola Savs 1027 - big breath :).......even if you should happen to be stopped + checked by customs, it should all be ok if you can explain that the items you're bringing are for your own personal use at your wedding - and you're not planning to sell them in Mexico! I've found that's their main concern - that you're not selling stuff in Mexico and competing with local sellers.

 

That being said, it IS Mexico, so what Should happen isn't always guaranteed to actually happen........still, chances are in your favor, and if you remain polite + persistent in your position, you'll be fine :)

 

It'd be great if you let everyone here at the forum know how you make out clearing customs.......we'd all love to hear your story !

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
