Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts


When I was there in May we shared a table with the mother of a groom - she said her son had gotten married earlier in the day and then everyone went back to their rooms, changed back into bathing suits and met up at the swim up bar...then did cocktail hour and dinner later in the evening...she said it was nice and relaxed...just a thought :)

Thanks Aubrey, for all of the great info!  All of my guests are staying at DRC.  My biggest concern is a) finding a location to eat afterwards if doing lunch or B) occupying my guests' whole day with wedding activities if doing dinner.  I'm sure something will work out!

Thanks, I like this idea!  Maybe we could let our guests know that we will be swimming and having cocktails at a particular location following the ceremony.  We could tell them that they are welcome to join us, but if they want to do other activities, they are free to do so.  Then we could let them know that we will be having a celebratory dinner later in the evening that we would definately like them to join us for.

I would highly suggest getting a travel agent to book your date, otherwise, your in for a wait...don't expect to hear anything for well over a month. I had that problem and as soon as I got a travel agent I had a response from the WC Ana within 5 minutes of my agent contacting the resort.

Absolutely! You could draft up a little timeline of the day and maybe put it on the back of the program!

I know we've discussed before, but any thoughts on symbolic vs. legal ceremony?

 

Does anyone have either script from Ana that they could copy/paste on here?  I read somewhere that a legal ceremony has to be non-religious.  Are we able to read any bible verses?

 

Thanks!

I'm doing legal and Ana told me she couldn't send the script because it was a government document or something like that...but I read on the dreams tulum thread somewhere that one girl was able to switch out the reading that's included in the script with something else.

If you want bible verses read you absolutely can - but I'd suggest having a friend or family member do it...since the judge might give you push back on changing the script too much.

I'm going to email Yazmin and Gabriela about the script again and see if I can get it from either of them.  I'll post it if I get it.

For those of you trying to reach Ana, I found I was able to get a hold of her in the early afternoon. After being there, it appears she works every day except Sunday. She tends to arrive late morning and stay until around 7 or 8. Most weddings and activities are not during the heat of the day, 1-4ish, so this is a good time to call. I found I was able to reach her within a few tries when I called during those times.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
