Did you ever see it decorated with anything but florals when you were there? Mind you you probably can't go wrong with either I guess. They both are pretty settings in their own way:-

My gazebo wasn't decorated at all but I saw pictures on line somewhere that people had it all dressed up with floral and then I saw a really contemporary look with benches etc... That looked really rool and I would have done tbhhat if i had the big wedding with friends coming etc..
I did not see a beach wedding while there at dreams except they set up for one down the beach a little at another resort. It was done all up in white curtains and looked pretty but it was also very basic.

Believe it or not, i am doing OOT Bags as well and I got mine from Marshalls! They have them all hanging as soon as you walk in the door. I got really nice colorful ones, that are the exact colors I am using too! I am putting two towels in them (cause i will have two guest to a room), a really funcky drink glass/ mug to keep peoples drinks cool during the day at the pool, and a few other small things......haven't totally decided that yet. I only paid $1.99 for two. So a dollar each and they are awesome! looks like i spent like $8.00 per bag! And i figured people could use them again when they get home as well as for the beach while they are there!

Does anyone know how long it takes for someone to reply at Dreams Riviera Cancun? It's been over a month and I haven't heard anything. I guess I was thinking I would receive an e-mail at least. All of the other Dreams resorts have responded but of course I like the Riviera Cancun the best. Planning on having an April 2011 wedding.

For what its worth, I sent an email to Dreams Riviera Cancun 2 weeks ago and haven't heard back either. I understand that April is a busy wedding month for them.

We are not looking at a formal dinner at all but will have about 4 tables set up for people to sit and eat at when ever they feel like it. Sorry to ask if you have already posted a review (I am being a tad lazy tonight).

Thanks!
Rachelle
Hi Rachelle,
The pool deck is pretty big. It would most definitely be big enough for 40 guests. I think they say it can hold up to 200 people! I had 4 tables and a buffet and there was PLENTY of room!

All of us brides have this same issue. I guess the name of the game is patience! I have sent multiple e-mails in the last 2 months and never received a reply. I am getting married November 2010. I have had the best luck having my travel agent find out information for me. She actually just calls Ana. My TA sent me a pre-paid calling card so I can call Ana myself, which is what I think I am going to have to do. Good luck!

Also - I have templates for my bridesmaids and groomsmen, which I'm sure you can tweak for all guests - I'll attach those as well. I bought a10 sized cards (3.875 x 9.25) at Michaels - it was in the wedding aisle - Mix and Mingle by Gartner studios (I bought white and then ordered pink envelopes from Paper Presentation to stuff them in).

Anyone been there lately and keep the resorts lists of activities and times? I'd love to see that to get a better idea of what happens when.

Tell me if I'm crazy - I like sparkles and heels. Maybe it's to help me feel feminine after all my mom chores, but I love these heels. My mom said the nude wouldn't work for the wedding, but I'm not sure. Are they too much?

I'm doing the oleg cassini ct326 that's T-length in front and long in back. I wanted a shoe that will work for the "blue" in the "something old, something new..."
I'm keeping things a little on the casual side, too.
Love the shoe!

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
