Hey girls. I think I am going to be picking the riviera cancun for sure. The only problems is our any of you worried that the price for your guest is going to be to high? Comparied to other resorts is it about the same price or is it much more. How much are you girls thinking that it would be for a guest to stay for 4 nights in April or May? I know some of you have already booked j/w. I have a travel agent but I think her prices seem kind of high. I though you were supposed to get a good deal with a t.a. but seems to be not working in my favor.

Also are they offering the free wedding still at this resort if you book so many night or guest?

All you need for the free wedding is 5 rooms booked for a minimum of 3 nights.

 

In terms of a travel agent, I have not used one for about 10 years and I travel a lot. I google the resort name on the net and look at many different web sites. I even look at web sites in foreign currencies to see if that is cheaper.

Thank you Dimenzi

Well I am about to book my wedding at Dreams today. I am so excited but kind of nervous.

The problem is now I have to pick between the different wedding packages. And I am stuck.

I am bringing my own photographer with us so I do not need a photographer. But I do want a reception. And I think we will have about 20 to 30 guest. But it is hard to say b/c you never know what people will do they say one thing and do the other.

Do you think that it would be a option at this dreams to add on extra things like a reception dinner and just choose a cheaper wedding package. I hope this makes sense.

Congratulations Megan! The free wedding package is the basic one, the DREAMS WEDDING IN PARADISE PACKAGE, when you have the 5 rooms booked. You can always start with this package and change to one of the other one's closer to the date. We signed our contract for the dreams wedding in paradise package and were quoted $4000 USD for 40 people. Our wedding contract quote is for exactly what you are asking, cheaper package with the buffet dinner reception. You can also add things like extra decorations, upgraded flowers, almost anything.

Hope this helps in your decision making.

Hi. How did they come to the US$4,000 if you have the Wedding in Paradise package plus the 40 guests? Ana quoted $60 per extra person (including tax and gratuities) on the Love and Ultimate package over 20 guests.

Did you go for the Ultimate package plus an extra 20 guests which would work out at $4,000? I thought the Ultimate package would cost $2760 minus the $799 for the Wedding in Paradise Package plus $60 per additional guest over 20. Is this correct?

Thank you! Congrats to you too! I was also trying to decide about my wedding package...does it get really expensive to add things on to the basic free package? I am asking because there are a few things in the other packages that I don't need, such as the hairstyling and make-up, and possibly the photographer.

Hi everyone,

Okay, so what I know is from what they were offering at the Dreams Tulus resort. Now I worry that each resort has a little bit of their own pricing scheme.

 

Laura - Not sure how much you can change the pre-packaged weddings (dreams of love and the ultimate) but Ana should be able to help cost compare. You may even be able to swap out certain things for other things, i.e. doing a welcome dinner instead of the 1 hr cocktail hour, or instead of makeup maybe get one of your BM's hair done. I think you have to actually ask for all the changes though and sort of "bargain" for the deal.

 

Dimenzi - the quote I got from Ana was for the least expensive package (which will be free if over the 5 rooms booked). I think depending on what things I would like in the package it will be more cost effective to do the Dreams of Love package instead. I tried to attach my quote but apparently it is too bighuh.gif? Not sure how that is because it is only 2 pages but if anyone would like to see it just send me a PM.

Sorry Dimenzi, it is early morning where I am and I think I miss-read your message the first time round. Yes, that is how they come up with the wedding package price. And for the other wedding packages they charge for all guests above and beyond the first 20. The $60 pp incl tax and grat sounds about right. I don't think they will minus off the $799 from the other package price. Not sure if you have seen the post I did that is info directly from the Dreams resort for pricing on the wedding packages. I may have more info and if I get anything official about the wedding package pricing I will post it here for everyone.

    • 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?
