Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

MCree i cant wait to get home from work and read ur full review LOL

 

I am getting so close and so nervous.... i just started working on my OOT bags ;) Do you guys think its bad if i save money and order cheaper bags like sort of like paper bags with handles and attach a cute tag to them ? I am putting a hangover kit inside, some candy, a koozie, and a t shirt that says something funny, so i figured maybe i could cheap out on the bag little lol

 

also- cesar finally emailed me back and said we are all set to go for the wedding..... he said he will bring props but not to tell Lorena because she will charge me ( sort of think thats ridiculous because he is not cheap and most djs provide a few small props)lol he also said theres an extra fee for cold fireworks- does anyone know what this is? When I asked him about certain music we like he said of course he knows it and not to worry.... is this really the case? the music is soooo important to me!

 

and i am curious if anyone had a TV set up near the dj where they displayed pictures ? we want to do something in memory of people who have passed away and thought a tv going with pictures throughout the night would be great. not sure i have seen this yet.

 

Kelly Kellz- did u post a review ? id love to see it if u did.

 

and lastly, i  dont think i am going to pay for my bridesmaids hair because i am getting them something else also so how much did your girls pay to get their hair done ?

 

thanx everyone!!!!!!!!!!!

Nope, no credit! But you really are getting so much more for you money if you upgrade. If you calculate everything you get it's well over the $3000 you're paying. I calculated everything out before deciding which package to go with.

Thank You Savanah, you have so much good info. We finally got our wedding confirmation and contract and I HATE the gold menu! Lol! Waaaay too froofy for us. I really wanted a buffet but I see you need 40 people which I don't think we will have. We need some major substitution!

That's how I felt about the menu too. I asked about the buffet and they told me they could do a minimum of 20 people so it worked for us!

This thread has been SO helpful and all your weddings are beautiful!  I have a few questions, I am using Juan Navarro for photography but since I already have to pay for Adventure Photos in the wedding package, they said I can use both, did anyone else do this? and how did they divide the time? 

 

Also,  I am thinking of doing all neutral colors, anyone do this and Is is too bland?? 

 

THanks!!! 

Hi! Did you have trouble convincing Dreams to allow you to use Juan Navarro? I thought they didn't allow outside vendors.  Do you have to pay an outside vendor for Juan?

 

Thanks!

Betty

hey everyone,

 

does anyone know the time the party bus comes on the weekends... the bus that takes groups to cancun/playa del carmen. i want to put it on my itinterary as an optional thing the night after the wedding but i am not sure what time to put.

 

also about the lanterns..... 700$ for 20? but they are 10$ each? I dont understand this at all!!!!!!!!!!! does the 700$ light up the entire deck and look beautiful to where i dont have to buy another single light. . . . or should i shop for lanterns at home and pay the 60$ fee she said to hang them.... totally confused about this.

 

wedding is only a little over a month away and although she is answering my emails there is like a week in between each so it is hard to make any decisions like this =( by the time she answers me with prices, ive changed my mind lol.

 

does anyone think i could just get her on the phone once before i come down, i have questions like- how much is the party bus if a ton of us go, can we get a discounted rate, what time should my guests be ready? etc.... and those kinds of answers i need for my wedding itinerary and such but then by the time she answers ill have a new question, lol not sure if im making sense....  has anyone spoken to them on the phone before they came down ?

Emily, 

Did you get the document with the lighting options? I think I still have it somewhere in my email from Lorena if you don't have it. I could email it to you. Those lanterns are $10 each. Or you can do the option like I did and have them hanging from the bamboo poles. I felt like our reception was lit up really well with that, the dance floor, and the lights under the tables. I'm not sure where the $700 came from though. 

 

I have no idea about the party bus... I'm not even sure they have that?? I think that's an "excursion" you would have to book through one of the people they have there on site. But again, I'm not sure about that. I never saw anything about it though when we were there. 

You could ask that on the DRC facebook page. They have someone on there answering questions that could probably help more than a wedding coordinator could.
