Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Ladies - are you getting married in the wedding gazebo or on the beach? And I'm thinking about the pool deck for my reception but would it be too dark? Do you know what kind of lighting they have near there?

 

Rdsjcr - I'm thinking of going with Real Touch flowers & have been looking through people's wedding pictures on this site & browsing through wedding pictures by color on The Knot to get inspiration for my flowers & just saving any pictures that look great to me. That way I can send the pictures to the florist

We sent out our invitations in the beginning of October and set the RSVP date for December 1. We didn't send out STD's though because we didn't have time since we got engaged in July and didn't pick a destination until September. I am not sure what the etiquette is either! I tried to get them out as quickly as possible. Everyone who is coming was able to book their trips without a problem. I have been wanting to post pics of my invitations. I did them myself (with my mom's help)... :)

We were originally going to fly somewhere totally different for our honeymoon but we decided it would be much easier to just stay in Mexico. We are going to Excellence Riviera for 5 nights after the wedding. I didn't realize when I picked it that it was right next door! Oh well, it will still be nice to go to an adults only resort plus the resort has really good reviews. :)

Laura! I love your invitations - very very nice!!!

 

We aren't sending out STD's either - I think we will just send out an invitation that will double as the STD - i'm trying to get them out asap.. most of our friends and family already know our plans so really why not send things out so they can book right away?

Has anyone talked to Ana about a rehearsal dinner? What kind of information did she give you? Are you planning on having a private dinner or dinner at one of the restaurants? I am having a really hard time getting an answer from her about a rehearsal dinner.

Thank you! We also told everyone about our plans before we sent out the invites. All these decisions are hard especially since I am really indecisive!

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
