Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

GREAT FIND AT MICHAELS- Ladies I just wanted to let you know I have found shimmer luggage tags, passport covers, memo pads w picsframe, and cosmetic bags.. for a great price.. Time is running out as they are on sale at 70% off and the tag should say SHIMMER FUN?? ( I got them in silver, gold, bronze, and brown metallic) you have to look through- dont ask the attendants they say they dont have them and they are there! I have gone to 4 stores and have almost 50 of each.. except for passport covers only got 22 for bridal party and parents. They were between .30 - .90 each.... They are really nice..

We also went through them to charter the transportation and they provided a really nice comfy bus. It was almost like a party bus because we all had drinks in hand from the lobby bar. Just a really fun night!
Can you tell me how much it ran you? I am interested in doing this! How many people did you have?

I was also thinking of dong this instead of a rehearsal dinner. Do you mind me asking how much it was and how many people you had? Thanks so much!

This is quite a tease. Please provide lots of details. The bad is just as important as the good. Thanks, can't wait to read the review

Question for those of you who have already been, and did a symbolic ceremony (you got married legally at home before or after you went): did you still do a signing at your ceremony (like did it look legal)?

 

I'm wondering whether guests will know that it isn't the real deal, and I'm also wondering if I should choose some music to play while the "papers are signed" since I think that normally you would do this.

Does anyone know the cost for DJ Doremixx for the reception vs. sound system? I know it's on this thread somewhere but I'm having a hard time finding it!

Is it 1200 for dj and 600 for sound system?

 

Thanks,

 

Cathy

The sound system is $180/hr (Speakers, Microphone, CD Player, Technician).
Doremixx is $300/hr.

I keep going back and forth on this one, too. I do have Doremixx reserved and I like the idea of having someone to kind of get the party started and keep it going. I am wondering if the "technician" that is included with the rental of the sound system does any kind of DJ-ing. Or, does he just stand there and make sure the ipod is running correctly?? Anyone out there that rented the sound system and just did their own music that can shed some light on this topic?
It would be nice to save a little money in this department.

We are using Ivan from Doremixx he has been very responsive - sorry to mix the pot but with the DJ you also get extra lighting (we are doing it on the deck and wanted extra lighting anyway) you get 2 things of cold fireworks (great pictures of first dance, etc) plus props, cordless michrophone (I wanted this for speeches during dinner, etc.) plus props like glow sticks, massive baloons, etc. (this stuff is easy enough to pick up cheap at a Michaels etc, but again one less thing to worry about)

 

Happy planning!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
