Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just got engaged a few weeks ago, and we are in the process of looking at different resorts. Dreams RC is on our short list, and I really love the gazebo idea. It is quite possible that we will have a pretty big wedding (maybe 70ish people??) and I am wondering what the capacity is for the gazebo and beach. Anyone have any idea??feedback.gif

 

I have emailed the resort a little while ago but haven't heard back.

 

Thanks!!

Regan

I'm suddenly stressed about the sound system. We're thinking of using the gazebo, but I'm wondering - is the pool too noisy there? What music or sound comes with the packages? (We're doing the ultimate.) Will we need a sound system? Any knowledge any of you have about this would be greatly appreciated!
There is no sound system included with any package. You have to purchase the sound system, which also comes with a technician, for $180.

Normajeane!!! Congrats MRS!!! I'd love to hear your review and if you have any pictures I'm sure we'd all love to see them!!!!! Welcome back!

Regan - we're also expecting somewhere around the 70 person rage - either location will be fine for that size. I saw in a magazine that the resort posted the "outdoor ceremony capacity" was 150...I believe Carina had 100 guests and had a beach ceremony.
Also - for your reception, the deck can fit 200.

I know this was already asked, but I don't know where to look for it. Who all do we need to tip at the wedding and how much. I'm not sure how all of this works. I just want to make sure we tip where we are supposed to.

 

1. DJ?

2. Photog?

3. Caribean Trio?

4. Wedding Coordinator?

5. Anyone else?

 

By the way, I will be there for my wedding in 2 weeks...

Ana has said to me the $180 is per hour for the reception! For the ceremony the cost is a straight $180. Don't want anyone to be surprised by the expense at the last moment. If anyone has info contrary to this, please let me know b/c I originally thought it was $180 in total for the reception not per hour.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
