Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Hi Soon2bMrsLozada!

 

Thank you, I loved how the orange looked against the blue as well!

 

1. For the reception I believe I chose option one, it had martini shrimp cocktail, mushroom soup, a salmon pastry puff and a choice of chicken or beef, I recommend it. Everyone sounded like they liked it! I did switch out the dessert though for the chocolate option (I want to say it was supposed to come with option 3). It was really delicious!

2. Yep, I got the flowers through the hotel. I sent pictures of what I wanted and explained what colored flowers I wanted. They did a really good job! Like I mentioned in my review, the only thing I did not really like were the boutonnieres (but I didn't think to send a picture so that is my fault).

3. Yes, I also got the lanterns through the hotel. I believe they were $10 a lantern. I'm not sure what outside venders cost but I just found it easier to do everything through the resort.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions :-)

Hi ajuce:

 

I know this is mentioned somewhere but I can't seem to find it.  But did you order your linens from wedding linens direct, and what size did you order for your round tables.  Ana sent me an email saying they are 2.2 meters but then that makes it about 86".  I'm a little confused on what size to order for overlays so they look nice and neat.  Thanks.

Chula,

 

Is there a legal reason that you had to do it a year before?  Or did you just want to?  Thanks!

We did it this way to avoid blood work/marriage cert translation and all the legal leg work that needs to be done. So we are having a symbolic wedding instead.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
