Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

So I need everyone's advice....

 

when we get back from the wedding we are planning a cocktail party "open house" for everyone that we would have invited if the cermony was local.  I'm struggling with the wording.  I dont like the term open house but i do want to imply to come and go as you please.  we are having cocktails and apps at a wine bar that we are renting out.  space is limited so i need people to come and go.

 

any suggestions????

By the way, if you hire Avi as the DJ you can now request for DJ Julian Molina.  He is side contracting with them, the only thing is he is not allowed to bring his own equipments and he has to abide by the $300 per hour rule.  I am booking him b/c I have heard from past brides that he is good, I don't trust DJ Neri or whatever his name is.  DJ Molina is so on top of it and I know he is looking out for our best interests.

Does anyone know if the temperature at night is pleasant or humid for July?  I am just wondering if the reception would be comfortable for our guests if the reception location is by the pool.

Sarcrook,

 I am too a hairstylist! Thats so funny, I feel like Ive seen a good amount on this website. Also, thank you for the Liz fields bridesmaid dresses too. I also sent them to all my bridesmaids and they loved them. My color is teal/tiffanybluish color and it has been pretty hard finding a color that is right and not too blue.

 

So we are going to be exactly one month after you February 24, 2012!

This is my long wedding dress- I actually found it on line and it is categorized as a "prom dress"  but it is so perfect for a destination wedding- Its really light and flowy.  The dresses I tried on at the bridal boutiques were way to heavy even for their categorized " destination" dresses.

  • We are in the same boat! We also bought a house last year and have everything we pretty much need. Is anyone else going somewhere different for their honeymoon? Whether it be a different hotel or different location in general?

My fiance and I have lived together for a while now, and a year ago we bought a house. Needless to say, we have pretty much everything we need, but my MOH and FMIL insist that we have to register (they're throwing me a shower later on this year- they also say that people are going to buy us gifts regardless, so it's better to pick out what we want). Of course, there's a few things we could always use, but I don't want people to A) think we're greedy and are requesting gifts on top of them paying for their trip if we register or B) get us a bunch of household things we don't need if we don't register.

 

Sooo, ideally what we could use the most, of couse, is money towards our trip/wedding. Since you can't ask for cash, lol, the next best thing is the honeymoon registry. I'm just curious if anyone has any experience or feedback on this. Does anyone actually donate? Or have you heard anyone say that its tacky? We would register somewhere else too for few things, so this wouldn't be our guest's only option (if someone didn't want to use the Dreams registry).

 

If anyone has any thoughts or advice, I'd love to hear...

    • 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.
