Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Where have you decided to have your cocktail hour and reception at?

The chooses are beach, pool terrace, deck, desire terrace.

 

I just can not decide if you have decided on where please let me know and why.

I also will be bring a ipod too. I have thought about shipping some speakers to Mexico so we do not have to bring them with us on the plane. Then I will just hope it is loud enough. My fiance has speakers and a p.a system. Now I just need to find something I trust enough to act like they are our d.j.

So no worries :)


Have you decided where your going to have your reception? Ana has made me feel a lot better and so did speaking with you on Facebook. My biggest concern was the music. I am having a DJ and I asked ANa if are reception is right next to each others (which it will be if mine is at the deck and yours is by the pool) would the music be a problem. I know we're both going to have an amazing day no matter what.

I also was under the impression that it was $180/hour for the speakers...I think because the sound system has to be operated by a "technician"? I am almost positive Ana told me $180/hour. I was thinking about getting Bose speakers. A friend of mine told me her neighbor has them and they are pretty loud and good quality.

I still haven't decided that either. I am waiting to hear from either people who have done site visits or brides who have had their wedding there. I am curious to hear which ones are the most private and have the best atmosphere. Good topic though. What has everyone else been hearinghuh.gif

I will have to ask ana during my visit. I was probably going to use an ipod for the ceremony music as I don't think I will play the traditional wedding song. I haven't figured it all out yet though. Maybe I will have someone play during dinner too.

Is anyone getting a DJ? I was planning on it, but wondered if that seems weird with only 30 people. What is everyone else doing?
I think I am still getting a DJ. I want everyone to be able to have fun even though I am only expecting like 40 people. So I am counting on a DJ

I am not quite sure where the desires club is located at in the resort. By the terrace is outside of the desires club. Ana sent me a picture of it. It was not decorated so it did not look that pretty but I can see potential.
Email me at megjps420@yahoo.com and I will send you the picture Ana sent me if you would like.

I'll also try to get pictures of the various reception, cocktail, and ceremony locations when I am down there in 2 weeks.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
