Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

You're welcome : ) I actually had no idea that Dreams had one!  A couple of my friends had honeymoon registries set up with their resorts, so I just googled it for Dreams to see and surprise! It came right up. I haven't really heard mention of it, which I find strange, but oh well. We haven't set it up yet, but I did show my FI and he liked it too so. I just hope people don't think its tacky...I'm slowly learning that you can't please everyone though. It just makes the most sense for us : )  

My wedding's Dec 3rd btw~ it's slowly closing in! I'm up to my eyeballs in DIY projects, lol...when's yours?

Hi Missy- congrats on your wedding! I'm glad to hear no one got really sick. It was kinda scary reading those trip advisor reviews for a while. Hopefully they've corrected the problem?

 

Elevated "bathroom use" (trying to put it nicely : 0 ) is to be somewhat expected due to the different foods your guests may not used to, but being out of commission for a few days is not cool since most of my guests are only going for a long weekend...

They probably wouldn't move you into desires as I was originally offered that option however there were basketball games on at that time so I was told i wouldn't be able to play music...clearly that was out. The lounge doubles as sportsbar...it doesnt really turn into a "club" till about 10 but the ballrooms are right next to it. We got lucky. Fortunatley we had beautiful weather for our entire ceremony and pictures on the beach. We got speeches, first dances and cake cutting and everyone ate before the rain came so pretty much the dance party was moved to the ball room but it worked out for the best.

Oh and thanks for easing our minds about the DJ- its great to hear he worked out for you, seeing as how the resort isn't giving us many options... I personally don't care WHO the DJ is, as long as he does a good job keeping my guests on their feet dancing and having a good time. I know his first few reviews weren't stellar, but it seems he's improved...

I'm also curious about how to do the ceremony music with timing and everything. 

 

Are you all writing your own ceremony or using the resort's script?  I've ditched the sand ceremony, but I don't know that I want to take on changing the whole script...

I'm unclear on that part! :(

What are you all doing for a "welcome event"?  We considered a sunset cruise at first but don't know if we want to spend that much.  A dinner doesn't appeal to us because it's an all inclusive and won't feel special but still cost a good amount.  I saw that some other hotels do bonfires on the beach but I haven't seen that at Dreams.  I'm now considering not doing an event and just beefing up the OOT bags with better stuff and handing those out at a "cocktail party" (having everyone meet at one of the bars) early in the trip. Ideas???

I'm not doing a welcome event. We only 20 ppl...so everyone will meet up that evening for dinner. Hoping that they'll pull some tables together for us. Which I've read shouldn't be a problem if you slip the manager $100. We are dropping off our OOT bags to everyones room after they arrive. (Which I JUST finished my OOT bags!!! WHOOO HOOO! I will be selling a lot of stuff bc I have left overs!) But .... The day after the wedding, we're going to treat everyone to a snorkel trip!

I am not quite sure if Deco Cancun is out of the picture yet.  Veronica said they are not approved anymore but I am still waiting for her to let me know if I can still use them since I already a contract with them.

 

Will let you know as soon as I find out.

    • 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?
