Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

YOU DO NOT NEED TO EMAIL OR CONTACT TO SPA PRIOR TO YOU ARRIVING. you only need to make an appt not even 1 day prior to your wedding and they will accomodate ALL OF YOUR NEEDS!!!! they do a great job with hair and makeup and will do whatever you want. We wrote our own vows and ceremony script (i got some from this site and online) and we only did a symbolic ceremony. got hitched prior at city hall. too complicated to have it done legally down there. we chose to write our own vows and script. they have an entire script for you if you want.

I am thinking a simple candle setup on the tables and then lanterns (my colors) above...but being outside--not real sure how that could work??

Also-- anyone-- we went to order our guys Linen Suits from WeddingTropics.com and the color we wanted Khaki is temporarily out of stock for 2 MONTHS! Do ya'll know of another place to order? (we cannot go to JCREW or etc b/c one of our groomsmen is 6'7, 300+ lbs)

thanks so so so much :)

Hi Robyn-
I am not really sure how you would hang paper lanterns over the deck. The deck is pretty large and there isn't anything above it. One wedding I saw had the star lanterns strung up above the edge of the infinity pool but I don't think that is the look that you were thinking of. They were just in a straight line above the pool. Hmmm...that's a tough one...I can't picture how it would work??

As for the suits...we got my husband's suit from here... it's more expensive now than what we paid but the suit was really really nice! We got it in tan.

For the brides that used them how did it go where you happy with the make up and hair?
Megan - I did make appointments before I left. It would be one less thing you have to think about when you get there (because trust me, once you get there, you will just want to relax by the pool and have yummy drinks!). I just emailed the spa and they set up the appointments - it was really easy!! My mom and my bridesmaids got their hair and make-up done at the salon and they did a great job! I got my nails done there and they did a great job with that too! They are really nice there and will get back to you really quickly when you email them. Here is the email that I used...

I noticed that the main complaint is the privacy or lack of for the ceremony sites, does anyone know if they have added a more private ceremony site or have moved the location of the beach site.

Thanks!
This was not a problem for me at all! I got married on the beach and did not have any trouble with privacy. The gazebo is less private. Hope that helps!

I am definitely going with IPOD for music. Great idea! I feel a little less stress that Ana had taken care of many weddings already and everyone has said positive feedback. I can't wait for next June!
We are getting married June 16th 2011! Have you gotten a group rate for your guest? If you have would you mind sharing? We are working on that with our TA but I am anxious to see how much it will be. Yay for June! :)

Thanks for sharing!!! I'm doing the love package too so hopefully calla lillies are still included by the time my wedding rolls around!

I am looking for acutal total costs - if you have been married here and have the Ultimate Package for $2700 - what did it all actually include and how much extra did you end up paying - and what extras

 

Thank you
