Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I can't believe that our wedding is coming up in 25 days!! Time surely flew by.

 

I have some questions for the brides that have already gotten married at DRC.

 

We are having the cocktail hour before the reception. On the wedding contract, it says to pick one cold and one hot appetizer.

 

There are 3 categories of the cold one's and 3 of the hot one's. Ana is so vague on answering my questions as usual. Does that mean I get to pick only one cold and one hot appetizer? Or do I get everything listed under the hot and cold appetizer category?

 

Also, we have about 39 guests coming to the wedding. As far as the menus go..can we get the buffet menu if we have less than 40 people. I understand that it is mandatory if we have more than 40 people. Or do we only get the sit down dinner menu. If we choose the buffet, do we get everything on that menu or have to choose items under each category?

I will be taking lots of pictures and writing a review for all of you when I get back. If any other brides are going to be there this week maybe we can run into each other. My wedding will be on May 21 at 5:00 pm so feel free to come and hang out with us all lol
Congrats!!! So excited for you - the wedding is going to be beautiful and don't stress about the rain! The forecast in Mexico always claims it's going to rain! I'll send you happy sunny thoughts all week! (and even if it does, the backup location is really really really pretty!)

Yep! We had three in our room every morning - they're rolled up in the little basket on the console in the bathroom

Hi! Yes, that was a group rate through a travel agent... it looks like we're going to be between 30 and 60 people. But they give that group rate for any groups over 10 people as long as the 10 are able to put the deposit down. We're basically just paying the deposit ourselves and the money will be reimbursed to us when the first 10 people book. That way, we're guaranteed that rate.

 

It's not easy trying to find a beautiful resort that is reasonably priced!!

 

If anyone has the information that I saw someone else ask about, with the pictures of the centerpieces, bouquets, cakes, etc. Can you please send it to me? If you don't mind? JLengagement@gmail.com

 

Thank you so much!

Hi ladies - I need your help!! I got a really high quote back for our group rates. I just wanted to know what everyone elses quotes per person have been, does it include airfare, how many people are in your group, and what the dates are. If we can't talk the rate down I'm afraid we aren't going to be able to get married here and we have already put our deposit down. Thanks!

Ana told me it would be $250 per hour to add time.... is this what you didhuh.gif THANKS!!!
I e-mailed the resort photographer directly and they told me they are available for however long you need them......no time limit.
I would check with them directly at DREAMS RIVIERA CANCUN PHOTO drercphoto@vallarta-adventures.com. If they say there is no time limit, keep that e-mail!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
