we have been starting to think about this as well. i had read on other threads about brides shipping stuff so i am sure it is possible--just pricey. here is a link we have been using to estimate:

Postage Price Calculator

i am concerned about the $300 limit as well. we were looking at buying a bose system Wave Music System ? SoundLink - Bose Wireless Systems - Digital Music Solutions to use for our music. i had read about other brides doing that as well. we were looking at using the speaker there at $180/hr plus taxes for 3hrs which is almost the same price as the bose system. then we would at least have something to show for it at the end! my FI spent a lot of time in mexico and we are now looking at buying supplies down there once we arrive. there is both a costco and and 4 walmarts in cancun, and 3 in playa del carmen. so are going to try buy many of our oot supplies there as well as looking at a speaker. chances are EVERYTHING you purchase in mexico will be WAY cheaper. espeically for the OOT bags, because while you will be bringing all the supplies down with you (and you would have to worry about duties on all of them) you won't be bringing them back to the states with you!

I did not know there was a Costco in Cancun! That is excellent! I was planning on buying several snacks from there and bringing them with in the luggage for the OOT bags. This will make things much easier! The $300 is additional to your personal belongings so I plan on splitting a lot of the OOT bag contents throughout my luggage and my families. I am putting flip flops in the bags so they will pass as personal items.

 

Anyone start their OOT bags yet... any good ideas?

One more thing.... is anyone using the resort photographer? All of the packages are for 1.5hrs, definitely not enough time! I was thinking about going with Juan just to save money but it is $250 per hour extra. When that starts to add up I might as well get another photographer.... any thoughts?

Hi, my partner and I are planning to marry in Mexico in May 2011 and have two hotels we like, Azul Sensatori and Dreams Riviera Cancun. The Dreams resort looks lovely and we are leaning towards this one. Our UK travel agents have said we can't book until April 2010 so any info and advise about a Dreams wedding would be great! michellemygirl@sky.com

 

We are not to keen on the gazebo so are thinking a beach wedding would suit us more. Can't wait to see more photos!

If you have a Facebook, Dreams Riviera Cancun has a very interactive page with lots of info and pictures. Not that this forum doesn't give you everything you need ;o) Just an extra way to help you decide.

Hi everyone!

 

I'm getting married at the paradisus riviera cancun resort in may 2010. Did anyone have a hard time contacting them via email? They don't reply to my emails?

 

We will all be there on the 8th which is a saturday, but they don't give you that blood test and medical until monday? How long does it take to get the results back?

 

I got so many questions....... sad.gif i'm freaking out hehe

Thanks for posting the pics of the reception sites!!! That was super helpful-especially since I am not planning on a site visit! I have planned my wedding for 11/08/2010 and have reserved that date with Ana but I'm a bit confused as to how I can send my deposit...she said something about emailing it to her and the billing dept...anyone have more information? Ana seems very nice but I'm sure she is super busy.

 

I'm new to this site and have a ton of questions! Thanks in advance to anyone with more

info about sending a deposit.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
