Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me when a coordinator or someone will get in touch with me or if I should reach out?  We are booked for April 24th and I really haven't heard anything from anyone except the confirmation, menu options and budget planner that were all emailed to me.

Thanks

Well learned my lesson the hard way. Spent $200 to ship two large boxes via UPS to the resort and they are now being sent back because I had starfish and shells in the boxes. Very frustrating but thankful I'm getting the items back. Just thought I would warn everyone! Time to buy another suitcase!

They say most of the planning is done about about 3 months before the wedding, and when you arrive at the hotel. We are getting married on the 28th of April, 2014. I have booked the photography, and dj for our wedding. We went to the resort to meet our wedding co-ordinator, Elisa. She was really quick to get back to me if it was something that was needed to be done, but some items take a bit longer, probably since they are not a priority. I wouldn't worry, they are used to planning weddings in a couple days time.

I have starfish I want to bring down as well. Do you think we will just pack it in the suitecase then? Or do we need to be making alternate plans?

i really wanted to have my wedding on the pool deck or terrace and everyone is concerned my 2 year old nephew is going to try and jump in the pool... can DRC put up any barriers that arent too noticeable?

If you have her e-mail send her a message.  I have had a lot of contact with mine and although she takes a while to reply she has been ok. However since I sent my wedding planner in a month ago she hasnt given me any feedback from it.  My wedding is only 7 weeks away now.  My TA has been pushing for a response.  I still havent filled in my legal form and I am finding it really hard because I want to confirm an estimated cost.  The flowers I want are different to the standard bouquets and we are having the Weddings in Paradise with add ons as our wedding is only for 7 us included.

 

I have read over and over that communication is an issue prior to the wedding but when you get to your resort its fine.  I hope this is the case for us too.

 

Good luck

 

Lou

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
