Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I made my wedding album and trash the dress album public on facebook if you want to check out pictures.  I'll probably change it back to friends only in about a few weeks. Enjoy!

Hi all ! I'm spending my last night at dreams :/ big day is officially booked for october 29th 2015. I'm so glad we came for the week to see how crazy the weather can drastically change from day to day. We also saw 6 weddings !

 

The people all over taking a front row seat to the gazebo totally turned me off. So i changed my whole plan...

 

Ceremony north beach at 445pm I'm hoping to get that suite and walk right out so it's very private

 

Reception on the other beach (we have to many people) I am going to skip the cocktail hour and do a 4 hour reception instead 530-930

 

I loved the coral and gold

 

I'm just really stuck on food. I liked things from different places so I'm really hoping they will work with me on the food menu.

 

Please give me any input on flowers and the photo booth ..I love that any cell phone pictures they print for you !!

 

Ah there's far too many options!

@@Tammi1025 @@SusanMarie813 @@adehaarte sent the budget planner, although i do recommend getting it straight from the resort as there may have been changes in prices.

 

So, I have a slight dilemma.....the resort has sold out of all of the 3 cheapest room category types for my wedding weekend (May 1-May 4). I wasn't expecting this and a lot of people I'm expecting still haven't booked even though my deposit deadline was October 1! I have 33 people booked so far but expecting at a minimum 10 more people! The room block I reserved is completely full and I really did not want to get another one and even if I do, the only rooms left are the Preferred Club Premium Ocean View rooms or better.

 

Has anyone had this same issue, of the resort almost selling out? And how did you communicate this to your guests without feeling like you are bugging/rushing them? 

 

Has anyone found a close hotel option to give their guests?

@@smileitseb - silly question, did your guests tell you that those room categories were full or did your wedding planner? I'm just worried that the same thing is going to happen to my guests...

@@pddcmc I told certain people that I know are planning to come, and i have a note on my website. Also, when some ppl tried to book through my travel agent, she told them that those room categories have sold out. I am getting another room block so that people can book....I've also directed people to travel websites in the meantime.

 

Has any of the room types sold out for your weekend?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
