Hey ladies!!! 

We just got back from DRC for our wedding that was on the 17th! There were quite a few mishaps, hiccups, etc, but overall the day was amazing and the wedding staff really knows what they're doing! I already have my wedding pics back from Anel and our DVD so I will share those once we are all settled back in, probably after the holiday! 

Congratulations!  Can't wait to hear a about everything!  P.S. Loved your blog!

Hi!

 

I just talked to Eva and she told me that I couldn't get the pool deck for my reception because I need a min. of 60 guests.  Is anyone experiencing this?  I have about 35 people.

Hi brides and brides-to-be! We have been looking at this resort and we are just trying to make up our mind whether this resort is the one we will be getting married at! We have never been to Mexico and really wanted to do a little sight seeing by going to the Mayan Riviera. We have 2 small children and given that this resort is child friendly and looks beautiful on the website!

 

I was hoping to get some advice from anyone that would be able to help out please. I would like to be able to bring my own real touch/artificial flowers for my wedding party. I really want a particular bouquet and the flowers in it are rare en seasonal and I would really like to keep my bouquet which is my reason for wanting to do this.. Would that be an option? Am I allowed to bring any type of decorations for the wedding or does everything need to be a part of the package/upgrades etc?

 

Does anyone happen to have pricing for wedding packages for 2014? Has anyone stayed at this resort for their wedding that can tell me whether guests were all put in the same buildings/area of the resort? Any recommendations in terms of a honeymoon room? We are bringing both children so they will be staying with us for a few nights at least.. How is the care for children there? Is there lots to do for them? I just want to feel good about potentially leaving them with a care provider at times while we prepare for the wedding..

 

Thanks!

Hi 1Dutchie! Thanks and congratulations to you too! I haven't been to the resort. I do know that you can bring your own real touch/artificial flowers and you can bring your own decorations as well. I'm bringing my own chair sashes and napkins and there isn't a set-up fee for the sashes and napkins. I chose the Dreams Ultimate package which comes with 1 floral centerpiece. I will need 4 more centerpieces. I decided to upgrade my centerpiece and not choose from the options included in my package. I'm inquiring with the coordinator on whether I can have the florist make tall centerpieces, made out of a bundle of roses. I've been sending the coordinator pictures of things that I want personalized and having her give me a price quote on those things. I say all of this to let you know that they will do whatever you want and quote you a price or you can bring your decorations. I'm not sure how much the 2014 packages are but if you send them an email to weddings.drerc@dreamsresorts.com, they should be able to help you. Prior to booking with them, I sent an email with my initial questions and one of the coordinators got back to me within 2-3 days. I hope this information was helpful!

Ok ladies!!! 

Here is my slideshow!! 

http://171212ryan.dreamsriveriacancun.adventurephotos.com.mx

 

Once I get all of the pictures Anel took uploaded to facebook I will make it public and post the link for y'all to see everything. Seriously, this slideshow doesn't do everything justice! I will write a full review very very soon. I'm still overwhelmed with unpacking and getting everything back in order from the holidays! 

 

I am planning on selling the table covers and chair sashes if teal is any of your colors. There are 40 chair sashes and 6 table overlays. If you are interested let me know and i'll let you know the price. 

 

I also left all the pink lanterns at the resort because I didn't feel like wrapping them back up and packing them. So, if any of y'all are interested in using them, they are there for anyones use! There are 25 of them! 

 

If you have any questions before I write my review just let me know :)

Oh, and just incase you were wondering why we ended up in the lobby and then a ballroom during the reception, it poured down rain right in the middle of the reception!! :(  Out of the 9 days we were there, that was the ONLY day it rained and according to the weather that morning it was 0% chance!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • 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
