Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Thanks for your review lsd203- can't wait to see your pics! Our wedding falls on a Sat too, and many of our guests have booked Thur-Mon as well...wish I had read your review before they booked. I thought about having them book Fri-Tues instead, but oh well- most wanted to travel with us- i.e. like our parents, who booked to arrive with us on Thurs because they wanted to help.

 

We've decided against having a rehersal dinner for that same fact (all incl-why pay extra), but did you ask Ana if they could accommadate your party at one of the restaurants? I know I read of a bride or two on here doing that, and it worked out for them. They didn't shut the place down, just sectioned off a part of a restaurant (I remember El Patio being mentioned), even though it was a bit of a pain (Ana had to ask the manager, etc). I'm sure it depends on the size of your party too. If its on the smaller side, say under 40 people, it might be more feasable...

There are two DJ's at the resort now it's DJ Neri and DJ Edgar.  You can request for DJ Edgar and ask DJ Edgar Cardoso to book DJ Julian for you.

Is beer served in cans or bottles??  I can't remember from my stay there last year.. I'm trying to decide if I should skip the mugs (since they would be such a pain to transport) and just go for beer koozies instread.  If I do that, do I need ones for cans or for bottles?

I am undecided about this as well. I've read that beer is served in plastic cups, but I would think they would have bottles too?  If we did get the mugs, would the hotel bars fill them up for the guests rather then everyone using plastic cups? I just don't want whatever I choose to be a waste.

The beer was served in cans ... the only bottles that they have are the ones that are in the mini-fridges - and those are the little bottles (Coronitas)

My hair is actually a bit shorter. I had extensions clipped in to my hair to extend the length. The hair stylist that I had was very good and she assured me that she would make sure that my hair stayed well considering the humidity and wind in Mexico and she was absolutely right. She knew what to do with my hair and they hair-sprayed the crap out of it so that it didn't move! I brought my own hairspray from home, but it probably wasn't necessary because they have pretty good stuff at the resort.

Thank you thank you!  I feel the same, Kad1010.. I just don't want to waste money and lug all those mugs for nothing.  So I may just do beer and/or cup koozies instead.  Plus, I doubt most people would bring the mugs home with them... would take up too much space in their luggage (we were going to do the bubbas).  What to do?!

Melissa,

 

Your wedding pictures are so beautiful.  I love your wedding dress and everything about your wedding, it's looks absolutely perfect.  By the way, I just wanted to ask you where you bought the grooms' men shirts b/c my colors are sage and orange and I adore those shirts.  Thanks to you, I have ordered the pashimi scarves for the women as well. 

 

Thank you Thank you sooo much for sharing:)

Here is a link to our facebook album of our wedding week (any pictures taken throughout the week, but not on the wedding day):

Here is a link to our facebook album of our actual wedding (ceremony, reception etc.)

Hopefully that works! 

 

Happy weddings!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
