Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I just ordered a pair of shoes for my reception that I think are so unique.  I found a vendor on etsy.com that will hand paint your shoe to match whatever you want.  I am having her incoporate the color of my bridesmaids dresses and starfish.  Just thought I would share if you are looking for something different.

Alison,

So what did your guests do while you were getting your photos done, before the cocktail hour? We are also having our reception on the deck in front of the infinity pool but I was told that I can't have a dj. So we have to settle for the sound system, which I'm fine with...but what other lighting would they have since the sound system tech probably doesn't bring any.

LOL...but about 6 was PERFECT for the beach..even the photogrpaher said so.  I am not sure how it will be when you go though...sun will set earlier.  The ceremony is less than a half hour...so I think you will have time to do some beach.  They do it really quickly!  Do the beach first and then get some family shots inside.

The guests just sat and talked and had some drinks in the lobby.  They started the cocktail hour while we were finishing pics.  That is so weird...why can't u have a DJ????  I never heard that!  The set up on the deck comes with the spotlights that we had.  The DJ didn't bring any lighting.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
