Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

hello already married Dreams brides,

 

My wedding is in 2 weeks and I have a question about bar options during the reception. Our reception is from 7pm to 10pm on the Pool Terrace, and I was wondering which resort bar is closest to the Pool Terrace?? We have 90 guests attending and don't want to spend $4,000 on an international bar for 3 hours! (Especially when everyone has already paid all-inclusive)!

 

If one of the bars is close enough then maybe we'll just have guests going there for drinks but I'm not sure...perhaps the first hour we'll pay for (during speaches and that) and then the last 2 hours people can leave the reception area and go to the bar to grab their drinks.

 

Any suggestions?? Thanks so much!

 

Maureen

I did not request any songs, since I was not familiar with any mexican trio music. I asked my wedding coordinator Gabi, and she said they will play some beautiful Mexican wedding music. She said something like Canon in D would not sound good. Whatever they played sounded awesome to me, and our guests loved it. I am sure you can request stuff if you want?

Hi Kelly,

You had the mexican trio play for your ceremony?  When exactly did they play - as the guests were arriving and being seated, and then for the procession and when you walked in etc?  Did they play for a bit afterwards for the champagne toast and cocktail or would that be too much time?  I was saying earlier that I would like to get some pictures after the ceremony on the beach with the mexican trio like Savs did, but I also like the idea of them playing for the ceremony...  just curious about how the timing all worked out.

Thanks!

I finally got a response to an email I had sent weeks ago and was told their are a few weddings the same day as me.  I am wondering what a few means.  Anyone else getting married May 18, 2013?  I confirmed that I will be there from the 15th to the 22nd so maybe she meant a few while I was there, not on that Saturday.  If you are getting married on the 18th let me know!

I thought I posted this earlier, but it seems to have not shown up...  apologies if it suddenly appears twice.

 

Kelly, I'm wondering if you could fill us in a bit more on using the Mexican trio for the ceremony.  Did they play as your guests arrived, and during the procession and when you walked down the aisle?  When else did they play during the ceremony?  Did they stay into the cocktail hour and pictures at all?  I loved Savs pictures with the trio on the beach, but I also like the idea of having them play for the actual ceremony, so I'm just curious to hear more details about how it all worked in your case.  

 

Thanks!

Has anyone seen or had a wedding reception in the Mexican Restaurant "El Patio"? I was thinking of having my reception there instead of the beach deck only because it is a safer route in case of rain/wind and it is very festive looking and very cute:) Please let me know if any of you have reviews of this location.

Going from the Ultimate Package to the Paradise Package

 

Ok, yes, a little sad. crybaby2.gifOk, very sad.

 

The amount of guests I thought were coming, are no longer. So Im literally going to change just about everything. ugh.

 

Since only 20 people (or less) are coming we are now looking to just have dinner after the reception at El Patio. My fiance doesnt want to spend the $15 per person to book the reservation. Im just afraid were not going to be able to all sit together.

 

Any feedback? Anyone know of a anyone who went through this?

You can also email me: simstar969@hotmail.com

For the photography packages, I'm wondering if the pictures included in the ultimate package get added to the pictures included with the photography packages?  So if we book the $999 full day coverage package (which includes 100 photos), and the ultimate package (which includes 50 photos), will we actually get to choose 150 photos to go home with?

    • 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
