Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies,

I have been lurking on this thread for a while now, and thought I should out myself.

My FI and I have sent in out deposit for Dec. 6 2010. I think this thread will provide me with the information I need, as well as an excellent place to bounce ideas around. Recently I came across a post with a website for discounted chiffon or thule for the wedding arch, I've searched and searched and for the life of me I cant find it again. Can anyone help? I'm 80% sure it was on this thread...Oh bother

On a sidenote - question for you wonderful ladies - how many weddings can Dreams have in a day? I thought I had been told two but I think there are three weddings on my day...and I was going to email Ana but I don't really want to wait 4 weeks for a response...
Do any of you have a phone number for me to call her?

Thanks!
Casey
Hey Casey! In an earlier post you mentioned you were bringing your own photographer. Is the photographer from the Houston area or friend/relative? Just curious...I'm wondering if it's more cost effective this way??

Holy moly. 45 weddings? That's crazy. Thanks for the info Laura. I believe Ana has an assistant now, but sounds like that still isn't enough. Also sounds like DRC is overbooking themselves a bit.

Welcome Letter (I haven't figured out how to attach the pages to eachother yet...haha)
Tag for OOT / which is also my template for my maracas tag
Good Morning Newsletter - which I copied from Martha Stewart :)

I've also created a table card template and a ceremony program template. All my supplies have been ordered from paper presentation and I also bought white shimmery card stock from micheals.

Wow...I have waaaaayyyy too much time on my hands...well actually I'm not a huge fan of my job these days so I'm pouring all my free time into wedding planning projects smile29.gif
Casey..it's me again, lol...can you please attached the table card template and ceremony program? Thanks!

I just wanted to let you know about another company I found in Cancun. It is Marina Cancun and the sunset sail is $275 an hour for 3 hours. This INCLUDES open bar. They can also provide transportation for $350. My quote is based on 40 people, but they were by far the best price!
I'm going with Marina Cancun also. I couldn't find any reviews on the company but they have been super responsive to my emails. Hopefully we made a good choice.

We actually were really picky about photography, as soon as we picked Mexico we started researching locations by checking out photographers websites/blogs - which is when we came across Elizabeth Medina. So in our case it wasn't so much a cost savings as we just really fell in love with her work and were going to make it work. I've heard some girls in other threads bringing friends / photographers from home AND it is quite inexpensive to fly from Houston to Mexico it might be more cost effective for you. I've actually been looking into Christine Tremoulet for my BD Shoot but I saw on her website that she does destination weddings too.... Christine Tremoulet - Houston Based Destination Wedding Photographers - Boudoir Photography

Hope that helps!

Absolutely! Here they are!

 

For the table card - I realize it looks gigantic but when you go to print it you click on properties, then click on features and under "sizing" change the paper size to the size of card stock you have (mine is 4x6) then check off the box that says "print to paper size"

 

I bought paper from www.paperpresentation.com - I got the metallic Flame and I'm printing in pink ink then I got raspberry card stock in 5x7 to go behind it...

 

I have white pearly paper for the programs and I slide them in a raspberry pocket and tie a ribbon around them. You do not need to mess with the printer paper size on these - the template is for 5x7 cardstock.

 

I've been channeling Martha Stewart hahaha.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
