Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

SharonMydung...I did find a thread on here with some picks from DJ Julian Molina..if you search him you'll find it.  He actually looks very similar to Ivan from Doremixx!  I've contacted DJ Mannia and I think they might be a lot higher than the $650 for five hours..that is a GREAT price!!  Are you gonna do the 5 hours?  That seems a lot - we were thinking 4.. --

 

Let me know what he says about the light up dance floor - and of course please share your pics!!

Sarcrook,

 

He told me 650 for 5 hours or less and 650 for the light up dance floor.  I am seeing if I can get a better deal on the dance floor, it just seems so expensive for a dance floor lol.  He is including all the party favors if I get the dance floor along with the package. I am still comtemplating on it, are you going to get the light up dance floor?

Has anyone looked into Live Music instead of a DJ?  I know the Band the hotel uses is very expensive but since they mark everything up, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good band we could bring in ourselves and only pay the $55 fee.

We're doing our ceremony at 5:30pm.  We figure it will take about 30 minutes ( to 6pm) then pictures for an hour (to 7pm) and have our reception start at 7pm. Between the ceremony and reception we'll send our guest to one of the bars.

 

We worked this out by working backwards from sunset, which will be at around 7:13pm on May 3, 2011 according to http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?n=923&month=5&year=2011&obj=sun&afl=-11&day=1  We really wanted to have the pictures taken on the beach while the sun is starting to set.

 

Hope that's helpful!

I started working on a review but it has been crazy with the aftermath of the wedding and catching up on work that I haven't finished it yet. I do promise to post one.

Above is a link to our photo slideshow from our 1/15/11 wedding and TTD session. We hired Anel from Adventure Photographers and bought the unlimited package. She did an amazing job, and is truly a pleasure to work with. I am really pleased with how they turned out, and am so glad we decided to use her rather than hire an outside vendor and pay 5 times as much. Really recommend working with her!!!!

 

We also had DJ Doremixx who brought the balloons, cold fireworks, and masks to the reception party. It was an amazing time!

 

I will be selling my chair sashes (60) and table runners (8) if anyone is interested....please PM me. My new hubby is dying for me turn to our "wedding headquarters" back into an office!

I want the dance floor FOR SURE!!!  $650 Does seem like a lot - I love the idea of the party favors!!  I do believe that is cheaper than DJ Mannia - and I like the looks of DJ Julian and DJ Mannia better than the resort DJ.  That is something I would pay for - the music/dancing...is 100% what you and your guests will remember - they don't remember what the flowers look like - but they sure remember the music!!!!  I believe in spending on that part of the party!!!  Hands down!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
