Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

Does anyone know if the wedding coordinator would be open to swapping the marichi trio (that comes with the ultimate wedding package) with the dance floor for 30 people? Although, I am sure we would enjoy the mariachi trio, I would swap them for the dance floor ;-)

 

Thanks,


Emmy

I don't think you can do that. The only way you can switch is if it's the same category, like food for food or flowers for flowers.  

They might do it, but I don't think you can.

I don't know if I shared these, but if I have, there are some new ones... 

These are the pics that we got on our camera from the trip plus the ones our guests uploaded to our shutterfly share site. It shows alot of the resort so you can get an idea of what it looks like. I made the album public so y'all can see; 

 (this album has our shower and my bachelorette party pics too so skip past those if you want. The wedding ones are closer to the bottom)

 

 

And if there are any newbies here are all my links:

I really doubt it, they are not flexible with things like this, BUT I would not pass up the mariachi trio.... just my advice. I had them at my cocktail hour and it added such a cool vibe and my guests were suprised by them and loved it and thats a bunch of loud new yorkers. I am very happy I kept them, i think it really completes the Mexico wedding and its different and fun.

Thanks for your response! I am still deciding btwn this hotel and a few others, but doing a DJ def seems like the way to go! It is a little strange that he disappeared but sounds like you guys still had a great time!

Hey Savs I was just looking at ur beautiful pics again and I had a question, where did u get the conch shells on ur aislerunner? Were they provided by the resort (if so what did they charge)? Or did you purchase them from somewhere? Thanks for ur help!

The runner and the shells were provided by the resort! I think they are standard in the ultimate package. We didn't ask for them and they didn't tell us they were going to put them down so that's why I'm thinking they are standard :)

Thanks Savs! I will have to ask abt them cuz we are doing the free wedding package and adding on what we want, it's more cost-effective for us this way since we are having a small group for our wedding :) the conch shells are a nice touch!

    • 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
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
