Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

HI, Just so everyone knows i confirmed with ana that if you do not do a cocktail party then you will have a credit towards the dinner. I am having 65 people so the first 20 are included in the dinner and since i'm not having a cocktail party the next 20 guests are only $20 for the dinner. So overall I will only have to pay the full price for the last 25 guests (i know i invited too many people lol). I also confirmed with ana that over 40 people, you have to do buffet--which from the pictures i've seen is very nice...Also if you want bows or table runners, go to weddinglinensdirect.com and just buy the chair bows for 89 cents and have your friends put them on because if not it is 5.00 per chair (rip off). the chairs come wrapped in the white chair coverings for the reception with the ultimate wedding package (not sure about the love package)

here is pictures from a recent wedding there:DREAMS RIVIERA CANCUN

Fuschia is my color so I am going to utilize the free white table clothes and then buy the beaded table runners for each table in fuschia from the above website and lay those over each table.

Hey girls

I have been out for a while. I guess I was banned. oops.

 

Anyways we have 12 rooms filled for the wedding. Everything in a way is kind of falling into place. I am glad the whole travel arrangement part is pretty much over with.

 

Glad to see some new people getting married at the Rivera.

I also bought chair bows but I got them on ebay. I agree that $5 per chair is a bit ridiculous. I really like those beaded table runners...too bad they don't come in the color that I need! Ana just email me that the price of the centerpieces is $90 each. I have no idea what I am going to do about centerpieces! Does anyone know yet what you are doing for centerpieces?

Thank you so much for posting the pictures of the recent wedding!!! It really helps to visualize things. Does anyone have photos of a wedding at the gazebo?

 

I received some answers from Ana, and I'm not sure if anyone else was waiting waiting with similar questions:

 

-She confirmed that artifical flower boquets were ok to use

 

-If you are just having a low-key reception (I am planning on just having dinner at one of the restaurants), you are free to just show up to one of the restaurants and hope that you can sit relatively close with your guests. They will also hold your cake for you in the kitchen so that you can have it out at your dinner, as long as you pick the site ahead of time.

 

-I also recieved a file with the free boquet options if anyone would like to see them.

 

Hopefully this helps!

We are using this company. They had the best rates. It does not include dinner, but they can all have that at the resort, no need to pay for food twice!
Sail, swim, snorkel, parasail, and enjoy the Mayan Riviera with Paradise Catamarans. Our private catamaran charters make every outing a memorable event.

    • 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.
