I was told $180 for the ceremony and then $180 per hour after that. With the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and then a 2 hour reception that's $720. Seems ridiculous to me.

I sent muliple followup emails, about one every 2-3 weeks. It was extremely frustrating. I was even working with a travel agent to try and help. I was going to give her one more week and then I was just going to call but luckily she finally responded. I know thier preferred method of communication is email but I waited over 2 months and thought a call wouldn't be unreasonable at that point.

Now my frustration is waiting for her to take my deposit from my credit card. I realize she is extremely busy but it gets a little rediculous with the no communication. The weddings they book and the guests we bring them for the wedding is a huge part of thier business. I think they need to come up with a better system. All I want is my date and my deposit taken care of and I won't "bother" her for a whole year :)

What is keeping me with DRC is all the wonderful things I've heard and from reading other brides reviews reassuring us that once we get there everything will be worth it and that our weddings will be beautiful. So thank you to all the previous bride because if it wasn't for you I would've dropped DRC due to lack of communication.

Keep trying Jen! It will be worth it. Dreams is beautiful and I've read almost only great things, I'd say about 90% of the time people are overly impressed and 10% of the time people nit pick at stuff with negative comments but still have good things to say. I think DRC will be worth it in the end!

Thanks Adriana for the information and encouragement! I'm feeling a little more hopeful and will keep on trying. I guess persistence is the key. In the meantime, I hope your wedding planning goes smoothly as well!

Not sure if anyone has replied to this post but there is a great photo of the resort layout on the actual website for Dreams Riviera Cancun.

Dreams Riviera Cancun Resorts & Spas: Resort Map

If you cannot open this type into Google, Dreams Riviera Cancun and it should be the first link in the results. Once on the website look for the "Resort Info" tab thing on the upper left had side of the page. Under this is the resort layout. Hope this helps.

This is the same information that Ana gave me. It is much too hard to pay that when I can pay for my own sound system for less than that.

Exactly. Especially when you can use it again if you buy it yourself. :) I'm still looking for the perfect sound system...

Emma, what do you think of this?

I have had an absolutely horrendous time trying to get someone on the phone or over email to book my wedding date and give a deposit. I've gotten a hold of Ana twice but only after calling the resort 5 times and getting transfered around a million times. Both times she was working a wedding and couldn't take my deposit. The last time I spoke with her she told me the date I wanted was availabe and to shoot her an email and she would immediately email me back with instructions on how to give her my deposit....that was a week ago....Has anyone else ran into this issue?

Hello ladies! I am back from the GREATEST WEDDING EVER!!! Anyone doubting this resort... DON'T!!! I know Ana is a pain to get in contact with but in the end she really comes through!!! I have posted an insanely long review for all of you, and if you have any questions let me know on the thread! Now that the wedding is over I don't have time to spend on here going through every post to answer questions so if they are all on that thread I will be sure to answer them! I HUGE thank you to all you ladies who have made this experience easier because of your help and advice! I don't think my wedding would have been possible without this forum! LOVE TO ALL YOU FUTURE BRIDES! Can't wait to see all of YOUR pictures and I truly hope all of your "DREAMS" come true, just as mine did!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
