Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I really recommend paying for a dj so your family or friends don't have to be monitoring the ipod. We had the Dreams DJ Mauricio. I included my review about him on this forum. 

I think the outside vendor fee is $150 per person. So if your DJ has an assistant, it would be $300. 

The dance floor is extra, not a must. The deck and beach are still perfect to dance on. Since music matters more to you, spend more on your DJ and forego the dance floor.

Hey girls! I just got back from my wedding yesterday. It was PERFECT, the best week of my life! Having a destination wedding was so much fun and the resort was absolutely beautiful with perfect weather everyday. You all will love it! Having a wedding there is very easy. I know it seems confusing and stressful when you are not there, but one of the best parts of having a destination wedding is that it is more fun and less stress, so enjoy! As long as you have looked at the options and have an idea of what you want, it is so easy once you are there.

Does anyone know the difference between the pool deck and the pool terrace? This whole time I thought they were the same thing.......we are booked for the pool terrace but which one is better? We are expecting about 60 guests.

I just got an email from Claudia introducing herself and sending some things to start planning the wedding with them!  How exciting!!!  

 

I started thinking about packing and what to bring.  Out of the brides who have already gone down there.  How is the shampoo, conditioner and body wash they give you?  I think I read somewhere that they give you all those.  I think I also read something about washcloths.  You do get them too right?

 

I was reading the Mexico consulate page and it looks like we can bring in $500 of goods/gifts if traveling by air.

In this list of prohibited items, I didn't see anything about starfish or shells, just turtle stuff is a no no.

The pool deck is wood and nicer from what I hear.  The pool terrace is concrete.  It's a matter of preference for what is better.  I think brides favor the pool deck.  The location is different too, but I forget where they are in regards to each other.

Have there been any stories etc recently about receptions on the beach?  I've been trying to see if we can switch to the pool deck, but no dice, the only options I am getting are the pool terrace, beach and ballroom (which are the same three options I was given originally). We're probably going to stick with the pool terrace, but my fiance was saying that maybe it would be nice to be on the beach.  He wasn't a big fan of the pool terrace pictures because there's "so much concrete", haha.  I seem to remember hearing that the beach isn't great for the reception, because if it's windy there's blowing sand and harder to eat, etc.  Does anyone have an opinion or any info on this?  

Did you end up getting the pool deck?

We are having our reception on the beach.  I can tell you in October how it is.  We didn't have enough people for the pool deck and I thought the beach would be fun.

No we didn't!  But we ended up switching to the beach from the pool terrace and really loved it.  There was something special about being right on the beach for us.  All of our guests commented on how much fun it was to have dinner and dancing right on the beach.  It was super windy on our wedding day, but we didn't have any problems with sand in the food or anything like that.  And we found it just as windy at the gazebo during the ceremony, so I think the wind could be an issue at most of the locations, depending on the day.

    • 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.
