Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for about three hours now and haven't found answers to the questions that I have, hopefully someone can help! The only communication I have gotten from DT was from Aurora when I originally asked for info. She hasn't responded to one of my questions or emails since then, AND I HAVE ALREADY PAID MY DEPOSIT! Luckily I have an awsome travel agent who helped me get the deposit among other things...so my questions are these...

 

1. Any suggestions on what type of ipod docking station to buy and approx. cost?

2. Has anyone actually been able to change the time of their wedding? We got a noon slot and I'm not extremely happy with it. That leaves a large amount of time between the ceremony and cocktails & reception. And if we did them directly after our guests would be in the blazing Mexican Sun.

3. We are doing the free Paradise package....does anyone know if the $750 fee applies to a beach or poolside reception? I had seen that MAYBE it does not if you pay for the silver menu at $55 pp.

4. Did anyone not have a dance floor that had a poolside/beach reception? I really don't want to pay $600 for a dance floor!

5. I don't want the cake thatis included in the package we have. I would like a two tier, tres leches cake. Does anyone know what this upgrade will cost?

6. In the event that we are unable to change our ceremony time...any suggestions for cocktail/reception immediately following.....or at the very least what to do with the time in between?

7. Has anyone just for gone the reception all together, had an early ceremony & cocktail hour....and a dinner at World Cafe? This is the only solution I can come up with if we cannot change our ceremony time.

 

Sorry for all of the questions....we are really trying to get out formal invites and I cannot get Aurora to respond to me. I even emailed Landy as I had heard great things on here about her. Still no reply. My TRAVEL AGENT is now trying to get all my questions answered, but not really at the pace I would like.

 

All information is appreciated!

However, I'm wondering if maybe she misunderstood my request, thinking I wanted the restaurant closed for our wedding? Or maybe they just don't want to decorate tables for your party in the restaurant, or have those tables being used for so long as they might expect for a formal wedding dinner. Who knows. I understand if they won't reserve the entire restaurant for your wedding party and close it off to other guests.

If anyone hears anything different, let me know as well!
I totally hate to interject here, but congrats to Princess402 and her one year countdown starting today! Eek! so exciting!

...ahem...

*we now continue with our regular programming*

She just quoted me $6 for the table overlays (I think that is what she called them). They are organza (Turquoise). I will then put lights underneith the tables...I think.

That was exactly what I was going to get... in turquoise as well! They are $6 to order so I might as well just rent them and save myself the trouble of bringing them down there!

Thanks!

Hello!

 

I have been checking this website on a daily basis. We are getting married on June 13, 2010.

 

 

Is anyone bringing wedding programs to the ceremony? I am still undecided if they are really necessary or not, since it's a destination wedding. Just wondering what other people's thoughts were on this.

Aww thanks Mike! You are the best wedding photographer a girl could ask for! smile03.gif

Yeah my wedding is still a little further out than most girls on here, but it's definitely exciting to start the one year countdown!!! I mentioned this to FI yesterday, that it was like a "pre-anniversary"... he was like "oh shoot, do I have to buy you something?". LOL.

I'm going to get raffia fans...since it will be warm out...and place them on each of the seats. The raffia fans will have colored satin ribbon wrapped around the handle and I will probably attach the programs to the fans. I think the programs will be fairly simple though.

Hey guys... I have tried to read this whole thing- while working and not getting yelled at by my boss at the same time :) But does anyone know - or what are your plans for the Rehearsal Dinner. I have read a little about people doing them at a restuarant onsite-- and it being a part of the all-inclusive (it just not being very private- as all other resort guests are there)....

 

But what are you guys doing?

 

Thanks.

I think I am going to use the wine cellar (in between the french restaurant and the italian restaurant). It only fits 18 people, so we are just having the wedding party and their dates. We figure the rest of the group can fend for themselves! I believe in order to have that private spot, you only need to pay for $80 worth of wine. You can order from whichever restaurant is open that night. I need to confirm all of this with Ana, but I believe this is how it works.

The other options are $10 per pp to have a semi private dinner at one of the restaurants or the buffet can arange for a separate area and if you want your guests to eat the food at the buffet, it doesn't cost anything. So there are a few options.
