Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

We booked Ivan in May also.  Ay yay yay....  I hope everything works out. Before Ana left, she called my travel agent and assured her that everything we had already agreed to would be honored. I'm going to try not to worry about it.  If anyone hears more updates, please write a post about it. Thanks!!!  Hopefully Ivan will work things out with Gabriela this week.

I'm not 100% sure, but from my understanding, you can bring your own photographer as long as they are guests at the resort.  Otherwise, you will have to pay an outside vendor fee.

Girls - I heard from Ivan.  He said all DJ services booked through Ana and Yazmin will still be honored.  Not sure what's happening in the future....that's probably what he's meeting with Gabriela about - and maybe to confirm everything that's already booked.  Try not to freak out!!

I heard from both Ivan and Gabriela - looks like everything Ana had confirmed will be honored! YAY!

 

As for the outside photographer, I had told Ana back in September of last year that I would not book the resort unless I could bring Elizabeth Medina and she wrote me an email that said "I will make that exception for you".  So I believe you're right, if they're guests at the resort (you're bringing them from home) it's not an issue, but if you're bringing someone in that's local (or somewhat local) - I would check and get permission before putting a deposit down on the photographer.

Yes, this is just fine. You don't have to use the resort photographers.

And as someone else mentioned, it's only if you are bringing in someone local for the day that there seems to be any issue.

Does anyone have Claudia Rodriguez's contact info?  I am trying to decide between the hotel photographer and her.  Also,, if anyone has experience with her or could share her pictures, I would appreciate the feedback.

    • 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?
