Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I received 2 emails from Ana yesterday.... within minutes of emailing her!!! Maybe it was a fluke, but I was very surprised by it!

 

I wanted to substitute the Mexican trio for the iPOD speakers, however, that is not possible. Ana told me the only substitution they are allowed to do now is flower changes. For example, I am getting 3 bridesmaid bouquets instead of table arrangements because I have my own centerpieces.

 

I have decided to keep my decorations very simple. I was going to do chair sashes, but then decided that it will look great regardless because of the setting so I did not want to stress myself out over who would put them on the chairs. I also thought that having the overlays would be enough at the reception, so I will not be doing chair sashes there either.

 

I received some new pictures from Ana.... one of which I believe is possibly Carina from this forumhuh.gif She also sent me the link to Juan Nevarra's blog, and he still is taking pictures for Dreams. Maybe he is only doing the weddings that were confirmed before the switch to Adventure photos?? I am not sure, but his pictures look really great.

I have a logistics question:

 

For those doing chair sashes, how are you getting them from the ceremony to the reception? Are the same chairs being used or is someone untying them from the ceremony and retying them at the reception? Or are you just getting enough to cover ceremony AND reception chairs?

I am not doing chair sashes, but I believe other ladies have commented on that if you are getting Ana / resort to tie them for you then you need to bring enough sashes for the ceremony and reception if you wish to have them at both, they wont untie and retie them at the next location.

ha ha yeah, its addictive though, I dont know what I would have done if it wasnt for this forum. When I joined this thread I think it was at 60 pages, its easier to keep up and catch up I guess, but I would recommend any newer joiners to bight the bullet and go thru it all, its a life saver.

Is anyone planning on doing a TTD session while in Mexico? I am going back and forth about it and can't decide! If I do it, I don't know what photographer to go with. I already have Claudia booked for the wedding and I think another session with her is just too pricey. Anyone have any advice?

What about the resort photographers? And they're included in your package! I'd send them an email - someone posted Anel's email address in an earlier post - and see if they could do it!
OR check with the other brides and see if they have a photographer booked for later in the day (assuming you're doing the ttd the day after your wedding in the morning...but you know what I mean!)

Thanks for posting these. I did email Juan Navarros and he told me he is no longer the resort photographer, so it must just be for the weddings that were confirmed before the switch.

Does anyone know when the switch was, exactly? I'm going to ask Ana if he can still be our photographer, I really like his work. We had our date confirmed a couple of months ago, not sure if I fall in this grace period.

Hey ladies! I know this is totally off topic but I'm super excited...we got our wedding invitations in today! They're totally not DIY or even remotely DIY because I'm not crafty...not crafty at all and completely stressed out about the programs/welcome letters/table cards and tags that I somehow convinced myself to make...but anyway...

here are my invites - what do you think?!

    • 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?
